What do Kim Kardashian, Drew Barrymore, and Halle Berry have in common? Well, aside from being rich, famous, and beautiful of course, these power women have decided to say “I Don’t” to “I Do” and are making no apologies for it.

Over the past few months, celebs-turned-cover girls have been gracing the pages of our favorite magazines to carry the banner for women who have decided to do it for themselves.

Last week, Kim Kardashian made the cover of Life & Style Weekly for an article that uncovered her inner struggle after being forced to choose between the love of her life and the career of her dreams. The twice-divorced Drew Barrymore covered the August issue of Elle, where she openly declared that “If you’re 35 and single and it’s a choice, it feels fine.” Rounding out the trifecta was the highly coveted September issue of Vogue, which was covered by a coy yet chic Halle Berry, who boasts that while she is done with marriage, she’s “not done with love but [she] refuse[s] to settle.”

In late 2008, Beyonce’s alter ego, aka Sasha Fierce, admonished all the single ladies to put their hands up, and ringless left hands flew up all across the world. Single women, celebrities and civilians alike, had a new anthem and were no longer afraid to flaunt their unattached status. Women who had decided to choose love of self over loving Mr. Close Enough were being celebrated in pop culture, making the decidedly single the modern day “it-chicks.”

From the permanently unwed, (read, Oprah Winfrey) to the newly solo (Hello, Sandra Bullock!), single celebs are advancing a new chapter of women’s rights– the right to be single, and HAPPY.

What do these singlelistas know about the pursuit of freedom and happiness?

  1. So true! A gal does NOT have to marry to be happy! Marriage is like a chain to weigh you down, imo. Just live your life to the fullest, and explore. My hat’s off for those PROUD SINGLE Ladies (I’m single too, and happy!).

  2. Being single is awesome! I’m having so much fun being single, and I’ve always been in relationships. I’m using it as a time to focus on me, which feels great!

  3. And this, my friends, is the gospel according to the single, satisfied, and successful! Go Kelly Beaty! P.S. It doesn’t hurt to hang on to some of the single sister “swag,” if you will, even when in a relationship. You’ve got to love and live YOU! Any good partner will respect that. “We” doesn’t mean that “I” totally disappear!

  4. In my humble opinion, people who can be happy and satisfied when they are single make the best partners. Besides, there are so many great things about being single, why not enjoy it?

  5. This article was dead on! Being married once myself and now happily divorced I too have decided to date and be happy. I am truly 100% single. I have been in 2 relationships after my divorce. I decided that I love myself more than settling for Mr. Right Now. All my family and friends know the score, when I’m ready to fall in love and make a commitment that’s when it will happen… until then, I’m living proof that a single successful woman can and is happy with being single!! So put you’re hands up!
