10 Reasons Why Your Friends Are Better Than A Boyfriend, As Told By ‘Sex And The City’
Bustle

Who says Valentine's Day has to be strictly reserved for happy couples? In today's forward-thinking society, there's less pressure to be in a relationship, create the “perfect” life with somebody or rush to put a ring on it. Instead, women are owning their independence and embracing their female friendships first; And nobody knows this better than the girls of ‘Sex and the City.' Carrie, Charlotte, Miranda, and Samantha go through all the ups and downs of dating (in endless re-runs and two feature-length films) so that we don’t have to. They’ve taught us about everything from love and heartbreak to how to rock a sequin tube top and find your signature drink at the club (a cosmopolitan, obviously). More importantly, SATC shows us that our friendships will be there for us through it all, always.

This month, show your girls the love they deserve by looking to the original #squadgoals for inspiration.

1. They answer life's toughest questions

The Superbowl is the biggest football event of the year, and the 50-year history of the competition has seen a lot of memorable moments. The event first began in 1967, when the first AFL-NFL World Championship Game was played in Los Angeles. Since then, the NFL has grown from a small regional competition to an international phenomenon. Over the course of the last 50 years, the Superbowl has seen some amazing plays, memorable moments and incredible records. This includes Tom Brady's record of five Superbowl titles, the first time the Patriots won three consecutive championships, and the Steelers' record of six Superbowl titles.

11 Genres Of Music That Originated From Black Culture

Numbers don't lie, up in the charts many times, black culture has defined the music industry. Music is a worldly language that can be understood by people all over the world. You bet black culture has taken over the music industry, but not from the way you may think. I'm not talking about their prominent presence in the rap game, but the origins of eleven different genres of music. Black culture is always using their heritage and ancestral knowledge to transmute the current energy to a higher frequency. Personally, I'm not surprised that many of these music genres have originated from black culture. Thankfully, I've been able to grow up in a diverse environment. I can only thrive in a diversity of friends.
