Bey's Newest Role? Starring Alongside Salma Hayek & Gucci For Girl Power


Take that, Seth MacFarlane! Though the funny man may have joked at the Oscars that it's damn near impossible to understand what Salma Hayek says when she takes the mic (all in his brand of jest, of course), Hayek's words couldn't be more clear in the promo for her latest project: Chime for Change. Founded in part by Frida Giannini and her team at Gucci, the initiative looks to promote education, health, and justice for every girl, every woman, everywhere.
The campaign for female empowerment will feature 10 shorts films, set to new music by Beyoncé (sorry, Bey's "Run the World" is not included!). Additionally, the three co-founders (Hayek, Knowles-Carter, and Giannini) are joined by an advisory board of Prime Minister Gordon Brown and his wife Sarah, Jada Pinkett Smith, Julia Roberts, Meryl Streep, and Archbishop Desmond Tutu — essentially, a solid group of men and women who are using their star power for a philanthropic cause.

Want to participate? Join in to stay connected — after all, Hayek did point out that, "thanks to technology, women across the world have the ability to connect in ways unimaginable to those who went before us." So, go on, put those Facebook and Twitter pages to good use!
