Transcript for Amal Clooney tells Vanderbilt grads: 'We need courage'
They are excited and we're excited to have Sara Haines back with "Pop news." Powerful message from Amal Clooney at Vanderbilt university's spring commencement urging the recent grads to stand up and inspire others. Take a listen. I see that courage is needed more than ever at a time when women all over the world face physical abuse, restrictions on their ability to work, earn property, travel and even have custody over their children, we need courage. Clooney goes on to say we need young people with the courage to say this is our world now and there are going to be some changes. I always think commencement speeches are like a good sports movie. When you get done listening to a good one you want to run at least a mile if exactly. Just the same, "Rocky" or a commencement speech. Rudy, Rudy, Rudy. Slow clap, guys. Slow clap. Oh, no, they clapped. That was all for fun. Next up -- amazing, robin. Was it a bird, a plane, nope, it was just the millennium falcon parked right here in the red carpet for "Solo: A star wars story" which took place last night in Los Angeles. The latest film in the "Star wars" franchise tells us the back story of a young Han solo as he meets his loyal co-pilot chewbacca and sometimes nemesis Lando calrissian -- did I say that right? Calrissian. "Star wars" fans camping out for the debut of the highly anticipated new film and some even coming all the way from Spain. Sara, can I make a recommendation. Oh, my gosh, no "Star wars." Do not check your Twitter today. Did I just get it? Not so badly. You read my mind. I'm like, oh, boy. You both -- where is my team? And finally, remember that selfie Ellen took at the 2014 oscars? Well, some pups in Cincinnati, Ohio, definitely topped it for robin and I I know when you see it. Check out this epic dog selfie. It was taken at a doggie day care. Now, I guess they weren't actually taking a selfie in case I ruined that for anyone but they gather at the door. That guy is so looking at the camera. Doesn't even need a selfie stick but how cute is that? It just makes you happy. When we saw it the other day Simone said I can't stop laughing at this still shot. So cute. There's nothing better than a dog to start out your Friday. Thank you. Everyone is happy. You guys I'm so scared right now. You know "Star wars" fans whoo.
