Beyoncé and Chimamanda Adichie

R&B singer-songwriter, dancer, self-described “modern-day feminist”, Beyoncé Giselle Knowles-Carter is, and has been, the hottest name in pop music.

The Interstellar Theatrical release poster

SPOILERS AHEAD, BEWARE!!   This past Thanksgiving break, after much pressuring from my friends, I decided to go watch Interstellar.  Going into the theatre I had heard A LOT about Interstellar; it seemed like the only thing people wanted to talk about.  I figured the hype around the movie had to be about more than Matthew Mcconaughey’s...
