Guess How Much Adele Makes?

Fine girl, no pimples

Fine girl, no pimples

She makes $41,000. I mean forty-one thousand American dollars.

Per day.

Yup. Per day.

Because of how successful her songs are, she makes a lot of money from royalties. So I cannot help but wonder what I would do with $41,000 per day? For starters, I would get me one of these:

My future car

My future car

Yup. I do love this car. I know what you’re thinking: But Vera, what happened to your Dodge Charger? And when did you start liking this car? Well, I still like the Dodge Charger, but I have loved and wanted this Beetle since I was five. It’s a long story. I’ll tell you about it some other day.

In other depressing news, you know who else probably makes more than you? Vivienne Jolie-Pitt. She’s the four year old daughter of Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt, and she’s starring alongside her mom and siblings in the movie, Maleficient. And guess how much she gets paid? $3,000 … per week!!  I don’t know about you, but I am now completely sure that there is a place in Hollywood that is screaming my name.

Meanwhile, somewhere in the DMV … my class on blogging and social media is approaching. I’d absolutely LOVE to meet you. It’s only $24.95 for early registration, and regular registration is $29.99. I know, I know, you’re distraught that I made it so cheap. Free refreshments. Great opportunity to network.

      I know, right?? I didn’t even think of that. I wonder what the guy who broke her heart is thinking. Because of him, she now makes $41,000 per day, AND she’s in a loving relationship AND she’s a mommy now, imagine!

    hey vera, lovely blog. i missed saturday’s radio show but i totally got caught up on gidilounge’s podcasts. mehn, that show was one in town. as for that photographer man, paosin, who was busy defending his cheater friend, Omoba, on twitter, i am utterly disappointed. i have lost all respect for his photography. he should be ashamed of himself, in fact i am embarrassed for them both. it is one thing to be remorseful after being caught and it’s another to be outright nonchalant about it. anyway, let God handle them. can’t wait for the next show, i just might call in if i’m gingered enough. what’s the topic again?
    one more thing, what ever happened to chari and buttercup? remember that blogsville couple that started out as friends. i know they might no longer be together, but it would be good to know what each of them is up to now so i can support them.
    have a good evening vera! e-hugssssssss

      Awwwww. Thank you!!!! Thank you for listening. And thank you for commenting. As for Femi, I’m hoping he was joking, like maybe he was just tryna stare things up. I’m sure he knows good from bad, in spite of his tweets.

      Chari and Buttercup, they are no longer dating. I don’t know about Buttercup, but Chari is on Ttwitter, and for the life of me, I cannot remember his handle right now. Damn it.

      E-hugs back to you!

      You know I thought I was the only one that noticed him defending Omoba and all I mean even if they are photographing buddies and all that really made me question his morals as a person and especially one who is married. I sincerely hope he was joking like Vera says for his wife’s sake because a person who will go out of his way defending a serial cheater clearly doesn’t think there is anything wrong in it.

        Awww. I’m so sorry that you feel that way about Femi. I really don’t know anything about his personal life, but I hope that he was kidding — or just deliberately trying to push people’s buttons, I don’t know.

        P.S. You seem to really know them. Reveal yourself! 😀

    No no no Vera. Not on a day like this *sigh*. There’s a place for me too in Hollywood!!!! Considering the fact that right now, I’m sitting at my desk at work thinking whether all the stress is worth it, this is even more depressing!!!

      Ms. Dawari, welcome to the club!! When you look at the money people make these days, you have to look at your life and wonder what the heck you’re even doing behind a desk. Lol.
