It seems the world’s Entertainment industry has risen to a point where real talents receive no or little remuneration for their hard work whiles the likes of Kim Kardashian (who are famous for nothing) continue to cash in with their emptiness.
My fear is that, soon we will have thousands of the like of Kim Kardashian and few of inspirational, talented and hardworking Mary J.Blige.
Apart from Mary J. Blige’s music, I respect and admire her decent achievements in the world of music. However, decency and hard work seem not to pay anymore because it does not get you the attention that will rack in the bucks.
Why would anyone waste time to develop talent and work tirelessly to build a career which would soon bring in no money when the person can trail the Kim Kardashian way (Get into a man’s bed, leak the video and soon you would be receiving half a million to appear on stage for 45 minutes in Nigeria).
If you’ve not heard, RnB singer-Mary J. Blige is facing serious money problems. She was slapped with a notice on the door of her tony upper West Side apartment building after it was discovered that she “had a rent-paying problem” last November. Yeah, she cannot afford her rent…
Mary J. Blige, whose net worth was at one point a reported $45 million has found herself in a huge financial hole. Late last year, New Jersey filed a $901,769 lien against the singer. In November 2012, she was sued for failure to repay a $2.2 million personal loan that she and husband Kendu Isaacs defaulted on.
It does not stop there. The financial problems go further, Blige’s charity, the Mary J. Blige and Steve Stoute Foundation for the Advancement of Women Now Inc. is also in financial trouble.
The charity has been sued by TD Bank for failing to pay back a $250,000 loan, and scholarships awarded to girls are reported to have gone unpaid.
How come Mary J. Blige is in such a deep financial pit and yet, Kim Kardashian continues to cash in unimaginable amounts for literally doing NOTHING!
