The holidays are all about counting our blessings and giving to others for no reason other than it's the right thing to do. Recently, Sia captured the essence of the season by taking a shopping spree like no other.

The day before Thanksgiving, Sia went into a Palm Springs Wal-Mart and payed for the purchases of several shoppers. Sia's real name is Sia Kate Isobelle Furler, but on that fateful day, she told shoppers her name was CiCi and had just won the lottery, which was why she was in a giving mood.


A video shows Sia hugging shoppers and posing for photos at the checkout line.

At the Wal-Mart, Sia swiped her card, paying for the items of one customer, then asked the grateful shoppers, "Who's next?" One woman gave Sia flowers as a way to say thank you for buying her groceries.

Sia is known for covering her face with a giant wig, so she was able to commit her random act of kindness without being recognized. Some fans had no idea the person purchasing their products was the Australian singer until they checked the news.



But she wasn't able to fool everyone. Some fans were able to figure out that the person picking up their tab was the "Chandelier" singer. "So @Sia paid for my groceries today thank you so much!! The heart and beautiful soul you have for paying for everyone!! I'm sorry for telling everyone once I realized who you were !! But this kindness must be acknowledged!!!" wrote on fan on Twitter.





Sia also pulled the same stunt at TJ Maxx.



Even fans who weren't there were touched by Sia's random act of kindness.



Even Wal-Mart was thankful for Sia's generosity.

One fan wondered if Sia was also behind an anonymous $1 million donation to the Ehlers-Danlos Society. Sia, along with Lena Dunham and Jameela Jamil, has Ehlers-Danlos syndrome, which is a group of inherited disorders affecting the connective tissues. People who normally have Ehlers-Danlos syndrome have overly flexible joints and fragile skin.


It's majorly cool of Sia to take the time to do something nice like this. Those people must have had a lot to be thankful for when they sat down for turkey the next day!

Hollywood is finally moving closer to equality. The past few years have seen a growing number of films starring, written by and directed by women. There's still a lot of progress yet to be made, of course. But there's one area where women have been kicking butt and taking names for decades: action films. Ironically, action films are stereotyped as the launching pad of the manliest of manly men: Schwarzenegger, The Rock, Clint Eastwood, Sylvester Stallone and so on. But some of the biggest action hits, both critically and commercially, are led by women.

If you're looking to expand your home video library for the holidays or just searching for a great holiday playlist while taking out some healthy aggression, here are 12 of our all-time favorite films featuring strong women front and center.

One in five pregnancies end in miscarriage. It's a sad and heartbreaking experience, but there still is a lot to learn from going through something so tragic. Beyoncé recently shared what she learned from her miscarriages in an "ask me anything" published in the January 2020 issue of Elle Magazine.

A fan asked Beyoncé if she was disappointed she didn't win awards for Lemonade and Homecoming. Beyoncé said her miscarriages helped put it in perspective. "I began to search for deeper meaning when life began to teach me lessons I didn't know I needed. Success looks different to me now. I learned that all pain and loss is in fact a gift," she said in Elle Magazine.

Even though 68% of women in America where size 14 or above, plus sized women tend to draw more heat for the outfits that they wear, especially if those outfits are even remotely racy. Earlier this week, Lizzo was spotted at a LA Lakers game wearing the dress heard round the internet. Dubbed the "thong dress," Lizzo's t-shirt dress was straightforward in the front, but the back featured cutouts featuring her thong and fishnet stockings.

During the game, Lizzo twerked when the Laker Girls danced to her song "Juice," giving the crowd a full view of her ensemble.

The Miss America pageant was started in 1921, but women of color were barred from participating until 1940. It took another 30 years for the first black woman to participate in the pageant in 1970. In 1983, Vanessa Williams became the first black woman to win Miss America. Now, the winners of all four major beauty pageants are all black women.

Zozibini Tunzi of South Africa was crowned Miss Universe, making this the first time in history that Miss America, Miss USA, Miss Teen USA, and Miss Universe are all black women. Tunzi is the first black woman to win Miss Universe since 2011, when Leila Lopes took home the crown.
