1 Sometimes Rich People Are Great Fun | The Billfold

Sometimes Rich People Are Great Fun

In this morning’s second edition of NY Mag pieces that are amazing and incredible if not entirely relevant to “THE ECONOMY” and “GETTING A JOB” and “PAYING YOUR RENT,” Jessica Pressler’s profile of this fantastic wealthy, artsy family called the Bronfmans is just a really nice thing to read (and must have been a really nice thing to write, since she’s usually talking to stuffy old men from Wall Street). Also a good reminder that not all rich people are terrible, some are just fabulous. Every detail is the best, but this is the very best: “She decorated in vivid colors, watermelon pinks and lime greens, had trompe l’oeil theater curtains painted on the elevator, and ‘painted the roof purple,’ she says. ‘And then I painted a big blue rectangle, like a swimming pool, in a real pool color. Then I put chairs around it, so that when helicopters flew over people would think, Those people have a pool on their roof.’”

Whoa, they sound kind of exhausting.

Really, Logan? I found them to be pretty terrible.

I love how rich people have to resources to fully express their craziness.

I love NY Magazine… but ick. This article didn’t make them seem “fantastic wealthy, artsy” but rather just wealthy, irritating and useless.

This interview basically ensured I will never buy the Beautified app, ever.
