Michelle Williams‘ new single “Say Yes” is all about letting the light into your life and staying open to new things. But what kinds of experiences would truly get the singer’s sign of approval? A Destiny’s Child reunion tour? Intergalactic travel? Taking care of Beyoncé‘s one and only?

These days, we’re not running short on girl power anthems. Our favorite pop starts from Katy Perry to Beyoncé are proclaiming the power of women, and bringing feminism to pop music in exciting new ways. However, it’s not all girl love in the world of pop. Competitiveness, arguments over men, jealousy and slut shaming are still sneaking their way into music… and the music of women.

Our favorite pop babes are chameleonic. Taking on a variety of personas and changing up their look from video to video, we’re always surprised by the fantastical scenarios they manage to concoct.

The claim that Bey, Jay, Solange et al. are “no different” from other families is up for debate.
