About 90% of celebrities are narcissists or they have narcissistic tendencies. They believe they are special and that they are entitled to special treatment.
These celebs cloak themselves inside a warm cocoon where they believe they are untouchable. Celebrities and their reps realize that the media is not as gullible as the general public, so they ingratiate themselves to the media (and to certain blogs). They give certain members of the media (and certain bloggers) exclusive access into their world in return for favorable press. This sort of treatment is otherwise known as kissing azz.
When a celebrity grovels before the national media as much as Jay Z does, he or she doesn’t expect the media to turn on them and expose their failings.
This is precisely what happened to Jay Z today — one day after his so-called “historic” performance at Carnegie Hall in NY. The hard working sleuths at The Daily have uncovered shady financial dealings by Jay Z.
The tide has shifted. Who didn’t see this coming after Beyonce played the media with her sham of a pregnancy?
From The Daily:
Jay-Z calls himself the best rapper alive, and he’s made a cool half billion dollars off his talent — but when it comes to giving money to the charity he founded, he’s recently been more of a nickel-and-dime kind of guy.
The hip-hop artist gave just $6,431 to his own charity in 2010, a year in which he earned an estimated $63 million, according to tax records for the Shawn Carter Scholarship Fund examined by The Daily.
His superstar wife, Beyoncé, made in the neighborhood of $87 million, according to a Forbes estimate — yet she didn’t give her husband’s foundation a dime.
Jana Fleishman, Jay Z’s loyal publicist, didn’t deny the $6k donation, but she did mention that Jay Z contributes in other ways. For instance, his mother, Gloria Carter, works for free running his foundation. Where have we heard that before?
