The school for underprivileged girls boasts computer and science laboratories, a library and theater, and was built as a result of a meeting between Winfrey and the country's former President, Nelson Mandela.She's catching a lot of flack for this, people sweatin' her because she didn't open a school in the U.S. but opened one in South Africa instead. Oprah's retort is basically that the school is needed, and the children are grateful, while children in the U.S. just want the latest iPod or something.
Kudos to her. Whatever. Who's to say Oprah won't open a school in the south side of Chicago one day? Step off, man. Give her a break.
Direct your ire instead, I strongly beseech you, toward Mariah Carey, who showed up to the school-opening event wearing this getup:
Mariah, my dear. Can't you just chill for a minute with the trying-to-look-sexy-all-the-time? You're attending an event at an elementary school. For underprivileged girls. In South Africa. Peek-a-boo lace at the decolletage?
Girl, it's a little much. Seriously. There's a time and a place for The Sexy, but the last thing those girls needed to see was you in an animal print dress (interesting choice, seeing as how you were in Africa, I see how you are), with your jubblies popping out.
