Rich And Famous

‘BRITNEY Spears has been piling on the pounds – and the dollars.

$123m buys you a lot of burgers

The Enquirer has seen Fortune magazine’s list of the USA’s top earners under the age of 40 and noticed that the singer with raw zits appeal is worth an estimated $123m.

Kevin Federline, Britney’s new husband, makes the list, coming in in an estimated nine millionth place, and so too do some other big names.

Top of the lot is Michael Dell, the 39-year-old owner of Dell computers, who is worth an estimated $17.95 billion.

The top-earning entertainer is Sean Combs, aka Puff Daddy, aka P Diddy, aka that rich bastard with the fur coat on. He’s worth $315m.

Other notables are Jennifer Lopez (age: 35; worth: $255m), Julia Roberts (age: 36; worth: $225m) and Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen (age: 18, worth: $137m apiece).

They are all very beautiful people.

And we recall the days with pride when no-one apart from us here at Anorak Towers said they’d make it.

We, who stuck by them whatever other cruel mouths said about their weight, talent and oddly-shaped third nipples, raise a paper cup to their achievements.

And if they should drop some cash in it, then so much the wiser of them…’
