Sub Title - Hand Envy
Rihanna will earn a reported £5m to switch on the Christmas lights at London's Westfield shopping centre.
The 'We Found Love' star has reportedly been offered the huge sum to flick the switch and illuminate the shopping complex in Stratford, east London next month. The shopping centre is located near to the Olympic stadium and Westfield are keen to celebrate a huge year for the area.
It is believed that organisers picked Rihanna over The Spice Girls with a source tellingThe Sun: "Westfield have had a great year due to the Olympics and want to fork out to celebrate. Even though the final contract is still being thrashed out, they're prepared to pay up to £5million for her. Organisers are expecting around 20,000 people to swamp the park. The Spice Girls were also discussed but Rihanna came out as the artist of choice."
My hands have served me very well -
They can wrap themselves around a paint brush like they were meant to be holding one their entire lives -
They can type ( quite quickly ) each evening when I sit down to post
They can caress - and they bring extra warmth to a hug
They can whip up an incredible dinner on a moment's notice
They can wipe away tears - mine and anyone else's that may need them too
They can make a bed - vaccuum a house - wash dishes
They can hold a leash
They can carry grocery bags
They can write up poetry - or thank you notes -
They can throw a ball - ( and sometimes even catch a ball )
They can protect - and repel
They can hold my chin up
They can prevent me from watching a scene in a movie I can't bear to see
They can help me get up from the floor
They can carry a multitude of dishes at one time
They can wrap gifts - carefully cutting ribbons - ( they can even curl them when they have to )
They can turn pages of a book
They can lift a glass of wine to my lips
They can bring a fork to my mouth - and when no fork is available - well they can simply scoop
the food and bring it to me anyway
They can give me medicine when needed
They can work magic on me by applying my makeup
They can change diapers and wipe baby's noses
They're extremely versatile - after all what would I do without them - I have, for the most part,
been extremely grateful to have them..............until now
THIS is how the article ends
The source adding: "Rihanna's thrilled she has been asked again. She knows it's a big deal and is totally up for it – if it fits in with her schedule."
What in God's name does that mean exactly?
" She's totally up for it - IF it fits in her schedule " ???????????
Let me repeat that
" SHE'S TOTALLY UP FOR IT - IF IT FITS IN HER SCHEDULE "
How much can she possibly be earning that she would have to try and squeeze this in?
I'd squeeze this in on my way to the hospital to give birth for crying out loud - I'd be like
" sorry baby - but mama has a really important engagement here - trust me on this one -
you'll be happy one day "
(And then I would retire )
They are not asking that she use all her fingers - ( that would be unaffordable even for them I'm sure )
They are asking that she use one finger - probably her pointer finger ( it's the most valuable I believe )
I'm so happy she's been exercising it and that she feels she's up to it -can you imagine if it let her down
right at the moment she was set to press the button? Talk about stress.
And for the first time I feel disappointed in my hands - they're UNDER ACHIEVERS - I see that now.
They're just simple folk type of hands I suppose - and they were taught from a young age that using them could only serve me well. Well now I feel that I was mislead. NO ONE ever told me that if my fingers worked hard enough - one day - possibly, somehow, maybe, they could earn me millions of dollars to
simply push a button.
The planet has gone mad - stark raving mad.
