This past weekend, Jay Z, Beyonce, and their oldest daughter, Blue Ivy, attended the Second Annual Wearable Art Gala which benefits Jay’s Shawn Carter Foundation. During the gala, there was an art auction and Blue, who just turned six, big a whopping $19 THOUSAND on a piece.
Neither Beyonce or Jay stopped her, in fact, they all seemed to think it was absolutely adorable, and I’m pretty sure she actually won the piece in the end. So, in case you needed to feel extra poor today, Beyonce and Jay Z’s 6-year-old just bought a painting worth more than my first two cars combined.
The older I get, the more I hate rich people because I am not one of them. I’m so middle-class it’s painful. Seeing a 6-year-old throwing around almost $20k like it ain’t no thang is so physically upsetting to me that I honestly don’t give a shit if it’s for a good cause or not. Like, why can’t Bey and Jay give ME $19k for one of my mediocre paintings? I’M A GOOD CAUSE! I’m pregnant with my second kid AND I’m on my fourth university degree. I AM ABOUT THAT MONEY, PLEASE GIVE ME SOME, BLUE IVY.
Things I could legitimately use that $19k for:
- Paying off my student loan
- Paying off my current car payment
- Paying off my entire credit card debt
Seriously, Blue Ivy just nonchalantly bought a painting that could pay off my student loan. HOMEGIRL IS SIX. And I realize this has suddenly turned into a blog where I just vent about how much more I need that money than Blue Ivy, but it’s not my fault my parents aren’t talented! Tony and Diane can’t make that Beyonce and Jay Z money! And no one is going to pay to see either of my sister’s sex tapes, so I can’t even make that mooching siblings Kardashian money!
Rich people keep saying hard work is how you make it in America, but I don’t see Blue Ivy Carter or Kourtney Kardashian doing shit, and, tbh, that’s the kind of life I want to be about.
