Narcissist: a person who is overly self-involved, and often vain and selfish.
Madonna, part of the 1% with a net worth of $500 to $650 million, has a new album coming out and is performing in this Sunday’s Super Bowl halftime show so she’s out in the media promoting herself. She gave an interview to Newsweek magazine where stated the following.
She’s not ready to talk about specific plans for this go-round (refering to concert tour), but it’s safe to assume that her ticket prices will continue to be astronomically expensive, Great Recession be damned. “So start saving your pennies now,” she says, sounding annoyed that any-one would suggest these prices are prohibitive. “People spend $300 on crazy things all the time, things like handbags. So work all year, scrape the money together, and come to my show. I’m worth it.”
Of course, Madonna is aware that people are having a rough time. A few years ago she got filleted for saying the Big Apple had been more fun back in the day, before it was all taken over by hedge-fund types. “It kinda was,” she says, unapologetic as ever. Consequently, she was “excited” by the Occupy Wall Street movement, for a number of reasons, not the least of which was that Sean Lennon and Rufus Wainwright did a rendition of “Material Girl” at one of the early rallies. “I thought that was cool,” she says, bringing the discussion back to her favorite subject: herself.
I will watch the Super Bowl but not this woman singing. Instead, I’ll be switching over the Animal Planet to watch the Puppy Bowl!
