fanMAIL: Materialistic Celebrities

Materialistic Celebrities

Loyal reader Tasheena emailed her thoughts on my post about materialistic celebrities.

Tasheena writes:

I agree with you 100% about these celebrities flaunting their wealth and not giving back to their people. I refuse to buy an album of someone who constantly brags on their record about how many chicks, cars, jewels, and how much money they have. I am not gonna use my hard earned money that I had to work my lil 9-5 for to buy ya CD only to hear you brag about how much money you have when I am barely making it in this economy. Shame on her and the others who brag about their wealth to their fans and their are even some who can’t even stop to sign an autograph for the same people who support their brand.

      But who are we to say she DOESN’T give back in her ample amount of private time?? We don’t know what she does… Maybe she’s the type that gives and DOESN’T BRAG ABOUT GIVING. Those people still exist.

      Gone and have a seat somewhere.

      I can’t really speak on Keri because this is the first time I’ve heard of her acting like this. Plus.. Keri is not a “baller”… I usually see this coming from rap artists. I can’t name too many r n b singers like that. I feel like when you have to do all of that.. you have low self esteem and feel like thats all you are worth. If money makes you somebody.. then what happens when you lose it all?

      Can a sister hold $10,000? You can write it off on your taxes as a gift without penalty right? I got a few songs in my catalog I’m willing to sell you in exchange for that bread. Come on nah, I got somethangs to do. That lil’ FatBoy in my gravi does NOT feed himself. :rofl:

      GTFOH!! I know people who post their dinner on Instagram. Does that a narcissistic make because some b*tch on your friends list probably ate Ramen?

      Maybe she loved her purse so much that she thought other women would too. Not to suggest, “Look what you CAN’T have!”

      I know dudes who post a pic of 20 pair of Jordan’s. some of it bragging, some because he’s proud of his collection.

      I wanted some shoes & my dad bought them for me for my birthday. I posted a pic of them because I was excited and had been eyeing those $1400 boots & waiting on them to go on sale. I didn’t post them to brag.

      Are there people on my friends list who wouldn’t spend $140 on boots, much less $1400? Absolutely, but that’s not MY issue.

      Should I hide my good fortune so you can feel better about YOURSELF? In a perfect world, yes. In the REAL world? B*tch please.

      Don’t let Sandra Mae’s a$$ fool you. She makes damn good money blogging, and she definitely ain’t blogging for the “joy” of a periodical “medical minute” believe that.

      She’s enjoying the fruits of her $hit talking and laughing all the way to the bank whereas our a$$es work 9-12 hour days, she’s doing better than most of us and is finished in a couple hours and never has to get out of bed.

      Work hard. Play hard. It is what it is.

      I wil flaunt what i what if i want to especially if i worked hard for it. I don’t blame celebrities for doing that, they earned it. and if i don’t wanna give back i don’t have to either. Overall, just cause she’s not talking about the charities she helps, it doesn’t mean she’s not giving back. I think it was denzel washington who was donating all his time and money to charity and never looked to be recognized for it. some celebrities help and don’t need it to be broadcasted to the world.

      This topic is now getting out of hand. it’s really not that serious.
