It's the people who don't recognize the racism within themselves that can be the most damaging because they don't see it.

I think this counts only for last. Bey finished the FWT last year I believe. 

But “bankrupt”? The good sis is EXTREMELY FAR from being broke :selena: I wish my broke was 300m :selena: 

Gaga will get at least a top 5 debut on the earnings list next year
