Mink eyelashes: $21k a year
Gifts for Blue Ivy: $2+ million
Cars: $4+ million worth of luxury automobiles
Jewelry: $17+ million worth of baubles
Real-estate: $20+ million worth of “40 acres and mule”, which includes private islands, a NYC penthouse and a Florida estate. What you’ve just read are just a few things that were covered in the Beyonce and Jay Z episode of VH1’s “The Fabulous Life of“.
Now one can look at this show a number of ways. Here are some filthy ass rich people, who’ve accomplished a lot in the music industry, so why not put their hard earned money and extravagances on display. Or it could be a motivational piece that says that it doesn’t matter if you have overbearing parents or come from Marcy Projects, a Phantom Rolls is still attainable.
But for some, it’s yet another constant reminder, in the words of Cody ChesnuTT, “b*tch, I’m broke”. As one who doesn’t dictate what people spend their money on, the VH1 series definitely proves that celebrities, not only Jay & Bey, live extravagant lifestyles and aren’t afraid to flaunt it.
It also means that I’ll no longer feel bad about having my friend add Beyonce’s newest album to my DropBox , because I’ll be damned if I’m paying for Blue Ivy’s next private zoo trip.
Excuse me while I go and reevaluate my life choices.
