Admiration is what I used to have for Beyoncé. I even named myself, Flawsnall, from one of my favorite songs by her. But, the skim over my eyes and admiration lifted quickly as of yesterday when I learned that she wears a $5 million dollar ring...no envy here folks, trust me, if I had $5 million, I certainly would not sport it in one setting (no puns). It's a skillet, but seriously...$5 million for one ring? What's the point, the statement? Is that where the core of her and JZ's love resides...behind a rocket-sized diamond? Gera makes me furniture, from scratch, hecho de mano (handmade) when he wants to show me a little material heartwork...again, no envy here...only grand disbelief...and no worries, I'm so clear there's the difference: celeb life vs. a teacher and carpenter's life...and in all honesty, Jesus was all three of these roles...but...wow...
Unless something changes and she decides to donate the boulder to a worthy cause, my respect for the want-to-be "legend" slash "icon" as she put it one time on the Larry King show ... is so way gone. I just don't see how she could wear something like that, today, in2009, worth that much money when there are so many children in the world, today in2009, who are starving to death or need love or, today in2009, need severe unaffordable medical attention.
Maybe this is why Angelina Jolie has always been an interest to me...over all...she's a real class act if there ever was one...
I might have to change my blog profile name...thinking about it...
