With new mom Gwen Stefani taking on judging duties at ‘The Voice’ to Ariana Grande setting a new iTunes record, women are once again piling up #TinyWin accomplishments that are super inspirational!
#1) Gwen Stefani: This uber-talented frontwoman, 44, for No Doubt may have just welcomed a baby boy — her third — with husband Gavin Rossdale on Feb. 28, but that hasn’t held her up from agreeing to make a new career move. With veteran Voice judge, Christina Aguilera, taking a season off because she’s expecting baby #2, Gwen has agreed to step in and lend her career-building advice to aspiring singers.
#TinyWin: Ariana Grande Rockets To The Top Of The iTunes Charts
It’s a #TinyWin for Gwen to realize that she can get it together and work as well as manage mothering baby Apollo Bowie, and his energetic older bros Kingston, 7, and Zuma, 6. Gwen makes for a great role model for so many women who wonder if they can do both — yes, she can, and so can they!
#2) Ariana Grande: She’s just 20, and as humble and adorable as can be, but Ariana took to the stage at the Radio Disney Music Awards on April 26 to perform her new single, “Problem,” for the first time. Then, as soon as it hit iTunes, it raced to #1 faster than any other song ever in just 37 minutes!
For Ariana, who’s suffered from a huge insecurity about her color-damaged hair, achieving a #TinyWin success like this is immensely gratifying. Talk about a confidence boost from a #TinyWin! Congrats, Ariana!
#3) Selena Gomez: Let’s talk about another #TinyWin — one that’s very personal. Selena had a tough experience at the Coachella music festival. She attended on the weekend of April 10 with new close friends, Kendall and Kylie Jenner, but unfortunately, she felt like Kylie flirted with her on-and-off boyfriend, Justin Bieber.

So, what did Selena do when she felt betrayed by friends? She unfollowed Kendall, Kylie, and Justin, for that matter, on Instagram, and decided to focus on her career and spiritual needs instead of non-loyal friends. At an age, 21, when social pressure is so enormous, especially for a celebrity, she achieved a #TinyWin for stepping away from relationship drama and focusing on her long-term future and feelings of personal well-being.
#4) Bella Thorne: We have to hand it to actress Bella Thorne, who achieved a #TinyWin for her decision to influence her peers and fans positively by becoming the spokesperson for iDECIDE. She’s just 16, but she believes in the mission of iDECIDE, which encourages young people to say no to underage drinking.
“I’ve just turned 16, but I’ve quickly learned that the path to success is all about making smart choices, standing up for what you believe in, and staying healthy. I’m so excited to join the iDECIDE campaign to share this message with my fans so they can follow their dreams and have happy, successful futures!”
#5) Hailee Steinfeld: Not every young woman, especially an Oscar-nominated star, can generously and publicly praise another young woman. But Hailee achieved a #TinyWin for sweetly giving an interview in which she gushed about what a wonderful person singer, Taylor Swift is.
We all know how young women can be friends with someone and yet still harbor some jealousy or a little bit of envy.
Hailee demonstrated that no matter how big a celebrity you are — or aren’t — you can still be a true friend, and every young woman needs one of those! Hailee earns a #TinyWin for being a wonderful friend!
Now, HollywoodLifers, you don’t have to be a celebrity like Hailee, Bella, or Gwen to pat yourself on the back for the #TinyWins you have each and every day. So, take time out of your hectic life to recognize and enjoy them!
