    Eh, my parents came here with $1,000. Originally went to New York, but when the douchebags that we were supposed to stay with bailed they spend their last times getting plane tickets to Chicago. After that it was a year of living with people that hated us while my parents worked. When we finally got an apartment it was empty of any furniture at all. My parents found a roosteraroach infested couch in the alley an alley and it was heaven. My mom didn`t even have bus fare so she would walk miles in the Chicago winter with my sister to the store for food. All of our clothes came from good will. Hmmm what else is there...my parents worked 7 days a week and then they would come home and clean the entire apartment building which was rat infested for $20. After 10 years of saving money they finally bought our own apartment building and opened a salon and now we can afford small luxuries. I think that immigrants success stories are the best.

    Not being able to afford gas or adequate food isn`t starvation, but it`s no joke either. If you actually read the article, you can see that they legitimately had a rough time of it for a while there.

    But I guess it`s easier to laugh and assume that she`s just another rich, spoiled celebrity you can feel superior to.

    Buying spaghetti from the dollar store is akin to almost starving ? Try actually having nothing to eat for 3 or 4 days girl, that`s pretty rough.

    Yeah... The problem that I have with her is that she was recently hospitalized for malnourishment. I guess this just goes to show that you can lead a horse to water, give it a recording contract, have it mounted by Justin Beiber, and it still won`t know what to do with itself.

    In 1997 she used to go to the $ store to buy Spaghetti. Allowing for inflation, that would be $1.38 now. Walmart sells it now for $1.06, I know cos I googled it despite being in Germany. So basically she was paying 28% more than she could have been compared to Walmart and there must be cheaper stores than Walmart. That`s a helluva lot more than necessary for someone on the breadline. That`s stupid. Dollar store my ass.

    Who is she anyway? Is she like Victoria Beckham, famous for being someone famous` other half?

    Yeah, I had to live with that for 18 years (if you don`t count the years at university which also involved living on instant noodles), so do millions of people in supposedly rich countries like the UK and America. I think it`s great that she`s made it, but it`s very easy to just ignore what some people have to live with all their lives while flicking through your gossip magazine in your 5 bedroom detached house in the suburbs, while complaining that the iPad2 is too expensive.

    >_< I`m sorry, but that tag line just screams selfishness. If she as a kid used to sneak into her neighbors trash because they had a habit of not eating all the meat off chicken bones before they threw them out, then we could talk. Government subsidies only work if your parents aren`t douche bags who `blow` it away.
    However, going on about how she`s just like `you` in this case actually works though. The only people who could afford to buy that kind of magazine are the ones who would consider getting spaghetti at a `cheap` store a hardship. It`s not about what you eat remember, but where you shop!

But you try and tell the young people today that... and they won`t believe ya.

    Spaghetti from the dollar store? Running out of gas? Try having $100 to feed yourself, your wife and a 2 year old every month. Doesn`t work so well. Try not having a car, because you had to sell it to make rent. Selena Gomez has white people problems.

    Oh wow, good thing she didn`t get fat from all that mac cheese and Spaghetti. That is the true story for Selena. This also made me laugh, and made me a bit sick. Stupid Celebrities.

    I`m under the impression that much of the over-hype is the fault of the magazine. The Gomez pair probably just answered interview questions about their past, and the magazine thought ZOMG DRAMA!

    I just paid $22,87 for an iPad2-64GB and my girlfriend loves her Panasonic Lumix GF 1 Camera that we got for $38,76 there arriving tomorrow by UPS. I will never pay such expensive retail prices in stores again. Especially when I also sold a 40 inch LED TV to my boss for $675 which only cost me $71,32 to buy. Here is the website we use to get it all from, http://tiny.cc/09g51
