Idol Chatter

070221_slug_britney.jpgAccording to court papers released on Thursday, here is what Britney Spears does with her $737K monthly income (with some editorializing by yours truly):

  • $49,267 on mortgages for two homes. Shouldn’t her payments be lower?
  • $16,000 on clothes: All this for sweat suits, bad wigs, and no underwear.
  • $102,000 on entertainment, gifts and vacation: Too easy, remember what Whitney said.
  • $4,758 on dining out: She must be sneaking to Spago and Mr.Chow’s.
  • $15,000 a month in child support: Legitimate, but sad.
  • $20,000 in spousal support, which will end on November 15: more money, more money, more money.
  • $500 to charity.
    Grand total: $207,525
    But what does she do with the other $529,475? Scarily enough, they say she doesn’t invest or save–again, too easy to take a potshot at.
    I honestly don’t know what I’d do with this much money and I am not sure I will ever be in the position to handle this much—at least not in one month. But off the top of my head, I’d pay for my home in full, give more to charity, create a nest egg for myself, and set up college funds for my unborn children–I like to be prepared. And so I don’t seem all Mary Morals, I would also eat at really fabulous restaurants once a month and buy really fabulous clothes using one-tenth of Brit Brit’s budget–it’s called the look for less. I only wish I could make that much without lifting a finger, save for the one that opens the door to my Mini Cooper.
    So what would you do with $737,000 a month?
