At first I was like whaaat? when I read that Beyonce just opened the Beyonce Cosmetology Center. Like, doesn’t she have enough money? She has to open… centers of cosmetology? Plus, I think it sounded too much like Scientology Center.
You think they’re kidding with the Scientology stuff, but then you move to LA and realize they are totally serious. It is everywhere. There are huge megaplex Scientology centers and streets named L. Ron Hubbard Way, and you never know when some bagger at Gelson’s is going to try to enlighten you.
Beyonce laughs in the face of such nonsense. She opened the Beyonce Cosmetology Center at the Phoenix House in Brooklyn as a residential substance abuse treatment program that also prepares people for a career in cosmetology. So cool!
Could she be more awesome? And more diva? I mean, she put her name in the title of the center. I don’t think even Oprah would do that! Still, Saint Beyonce totally deserves the center to be named in her honor. She donated her acting salary from Cadillac Records to the non-profit substance abuse service organization back in 2008. She’s awesome.
