| Filed under: R.I.P.Sad SadBookzHealthCancerSick

Take a look at her inspiring letter.

Jackie Collins may have passed away last month, but we're just now getting to read the final words she had for her fans.

The best-selling novelist died at the age of 77, after losing a 7-year battle with breast cancer. But now — on her website — her team has released the last letter she wrote to her supporters.

In her message, The Santangelos author stressed the importance of getting tested regularly, in order to catch cancer early on:

"As you may have recently heard, I revealed that I have been LIVING life to the fullest with Stage 4 Breast Cancer for the past six and a half years. With October being Breast Cancer Awareness Month, my message is this: Early detection can save lives! Get regular mammograms, and/or tell your loved ones too. Low cost or free mammograms are offered through many national programs and community organizations, so do your research. Even if you've been screened, and you have a gut feeling that something in your body is off, get a second opinion!"

She expressed that, if you do get diagnosed with the disease, it's important to remain optimistic, writing:

| Filed under: Music MinuteSara BareillesBookzBodyGirl Power

Sara Bareilles new book

Singer-songwriter, author, Broadway composer… that's quite an impressive resumé!

Sara Bareilles is responsible for some of our favorite jams like Love Song and Brave, and now has released a very personal memoir entitled Sounds Like Me: My Life (So Far) in Song where she opens up about her parents divorce, her struggle with body shaming as a child, and how her music saved a fan from suicide.

In a recent interview, the 35-year-old revealed some of the very important topics she covers in her book, which was a completely different writing experience for her:

"This felt much more laborious [than song writing] so in the end it was incredibly rewarding."

Her songs are always meaningful, so we are sure the penned pages will not disappoint.

Growing up, the songstress says she was bullied endlessly about her weight — ridicule that she admits still affects her today:

In Honor Of Stephenie Meyer's Gender-Swapped Version Of Twilight, Here's Our Dream Cast For The Inevitable Movie!

Can you believe it's been 10 years already?!

We were pleasantly surprised on Tuesday when it was revealed that Stephenie Meyer would be releasing a gender-swapped version of Twilight in honor of the series' 10th anniversary.

The news came as quite a shock to us, but we took it as a challenge to come up with our dream cast for the eventual movie version of Life and Death: Twilight Reimagined!

Robert Pattinson was the very first one we found a replacement for, because how perfect would Cara Delevingne be in that role?!

Seriously. They're both British, super famous, and… just look at those eyebrows! Perfect match!

So who did we pick to play Kristen Stewart, Taylor Lautner, Dakota Fanning, and the rest of the cast?
