cristal clear - not with bling-bling

Rappers (those people who talk to music, so technically are not singers) make a lot of money and like to flaunt an extravagent lifestyle called bling-bling. This includes drinking fancy champagne like Cristal.

The head of Louis Roederer, the company that makes Cristal champagne would prefer that rappers drank something else, like Dom Perignon or Krug.

Jay-Z was one of the rappers who got other rappers into the Cristal thing. He is of course, quite upset with the Louis Roederer company and will now boycott Cristal from his clubs. See - CNN

No matter how rich people get, wealth does not buy class. If there was an airline run by Louis Roederer (Air Cristal?), they would probably prefer to not sell first class seats to rappers.

I'm sure Louis Roederer would be happy for Oprah to serve Cristal on her show, but not on Ricki Lake or Jerry Springer.

Not much different really, to those clubs and bars that reserve the right to refuse admission to anybody they deem "unsuitable".

*As always, please check out Cooper and Camilla who always have interesting things to say.


My breakfast was late this morning as my human extended his sleep time. I did get a chance to go outside and nibble on some grass when he hung out the washing as the sun was shining this morning.

Nothing much happened today. I spent most of the day on my human's lap and at one stage he fell asleep with me. Woohoo! My favourite activity.
