Money, Power, and Respect

Poverty is transient or better yet a state of mind only the individual has control of. To some it appears inherent, those who are born and die in it. Even oppressive is when we turn on our tvs and see Hollywood stars spend millions of dollars on what we might consider vain. Legal or illegal how they make their money, they command a lot of power and respect. The Hollywood’s stars are so many that we could name at least one right off the top of our heads. We love some and some we love to hate.

Mel Gibson is for instance one of them. He has produced, directed, and acted many movies and most of them I liked. Although what almost freezed my brain about him was the millions that were at stake of his divorce. When I saw the figure I wondered if I would be able to make the smallest fraction of that amount before I die. $425 million dollars. He could donate about $30 to every American and still keep some change. That’s how insanely rich he is. The list goes on, but I want to mention Asthon Kutcher too.

One of my all time favorite singers is Seal. And when I heard about his divorve, it made me shed a tear. He appears to be the perfect daddy and hubby. The divorce does not change how I feel about him. He is still an awesome singer and had a beutiful wife. What is riduculous is him using his divorce in order to market his upcoming album. Of course it’s a smart move, but Hollywood c’mon now. Every opportunity they get to make more millions in their banks and become more popular they will take. The list goes on, but I would like to add Kim Kardashian to the list? Do you notice a glitch?

Just recently Detroit’s Prince Fielder was offered an astounding amount of $214 million dollars to stay with the Tigers. Of course he agreed to the 9 year deal. There are so many other who have been offered deals but don’t compare to this. They own the most exoensive pads, they drive the best cars, and they live out loud. They mean and live the words “money makes the world go round”.

What is your opinion about the money making schemes of celebrities?
