That’s actually gravy
Oprah Winfrey gave the commencement speech Sunday afternoon at Duke University. And she pretty much nailed it (via the Wall Street Journal):
“It’s great to have a nice home. It’s great to have nice homes! It’s great to have a nice home that just escaped the fire in Santa Barbara. It’s great to have a private jet. Anyone that tells you that having your own private jet isn’t great is lying to you.”
Of course Oprah’s right about the house thing. All these celebrities that tell you the best part about being famous is giving back to others or seeing a smile on a fan’s face is full of shit. No, no, no, I take that back. The best part about being famous actually is seeing a smile on a fan’s face . . . while she’s laying next to you naked in your 9000 square foot beachfront home in Maui.
