Last month, I did a video about celebrities who think they’re entitled to free clothes. I explained that sample sizes — by definition — are not “one size fits all,” so it’s not a personal insult if a dress designed for one particular model to wear a single time on a runway doesn’t magically fit a random celebrity. It’s also not an outrage if a designer expects a celebrity to pay for her clothes like everyone else does. If you missed that video, you can watch it now to get some context for today’s video.
My new video is a follow-up with my personal perspective about celebrities and fine jewelry. I explain why ring sample sizes are average, rather than super-petite like runway clothing samples — which still doesn’t make a design “one size fits all.” I also discuss why I don’t loan a lot of jewelry out anymore, and what a celebrity could say to finesse a jewelry gift from me. One hint about the latter issue:
Of course, there are celebrities including Beyoncé and Rihanna that I would love to shower with jewels — at least as a loan. You’ll get my full A+ list in the video; some of them might surprise you. There are also shout-outs to legendary rapper Gangsta Boo and up-and-coming rapper Hi-Rez, who both got surprise jewelry gifts from me just for being their awesome selves.
By the way, I shot this video before Cardi B’s brand-new scandal over a three-year-old video in which she claimed she rolled dudes to get by. Cardi has talked about being a gang member too, and I’m not convinced it wasn’t all part of creating a bad-bitch persona. This kind of thing has happened before: Singer Akon claimed an extensive faux-felonious past for street cred, and rapper Rick Ross bragged about selling cocaine before it was reported that he actually worked as a corrections officer. Even after photos of him in uniform surfaced, Ross issued denials for months before finally confessing to a law-enforcing past. I’m going to need some evidence besides braggadocio and self-promoting videos. Cardi, you can still call me.
