A：have you read the feature article about Oprah Winfrey in this magazine?
B：no, what's it about?
A：apparently, she's being given an award for donating so much money to charity.
B：she's very generous with her money. I think that's because she was poor when she was young.
A：I heard that she's one of the wealthiest women in the world.
B：I'd believe it. She owns magazines, television shows and she has a huge fan base.
A：you know; I heard that she was opening a school for underprivileged girls in Africa.
B：did they mention that in the article?
A：yes, she's not only building the school, but is also using her own money for the upkeep of the school and to pay the teachers a fair salary.
B：that's really commendable. I think more celebrities should use their money to help people like Oprah has.
A：I agree. So many celebrities waste their money on sports cars, expensive clothing, and luxurious hotels.
B：it's amazing how much money they can spend. I heard Britney Spears once spent $24,000 a night on a hotel room!
A：what a waste. It's good to see some stars that are more concerned with charity than status symbols.
