Uber-blogger Perez Hilton has dubbed Beyonce a frugalista. I have to agree. She's been a frugalista for a while. Her mother makes her clothes and used to do her hair. Most of the people who were instrumental in building her career were family members like her father and cousin, so I know they didn't charge top dollar. Also, when the extra members of Destiny's Child became too expensive, she cut them out of the group! hehehe. I kid. I kid.
This is what Beyonce says in an interview with the U.K. Mirror
"Honestly, I’m very frugal. I haven’t bought a car since I was 16 or any diamonds since I was 17," she said.
"I have a lot of property. I’ve invested my money and I don’t have to make any more, thank God, because I’m set. I’m now able really to be free and just do things that make me happy."
I'm a big Beyonce fan. I love her work ethic and her mental will. I saw her in concert and she was sheer perfection. There's nothing wrong with being a hard working sister! Now, I'm not saying that I will start prancing in onesies or wearing a blond pony tail. I'm just saying she makes the right moves!.
I think Perez is secretly a fan of my blog. He's from Miami and he likes the way Frugalista rolls off the tongue!
Do you believe Beyonce is a frugalista? Can you do the single ladies dance? I tried, but I couldn't work it like this guy.
