When it comes to etiquette, manners and overall good behavior, even celebrities need help navigating the rough waters of stardom! It’s a good thing Countess LuAnn de Lesseps of the Real Housewives of New York is joining forces with OK! to school them on the right thing to do! In a rough situation, we just ask, “What Would the Countess Do?” This week the Countess sheds insight on the freedom to Tweet and the fascination with royal families.
Katy Perry recently Tweeted what could be a criticism of Lady Gaga’s new video for “Alejandro.” Was she within her rights to do it this way or should she take a more upfront approach?
The First Amendment protects Lady Gaga’s right to prance around as latex clad nun engaging in sadomasochistic sex, but we have the choice to watch her video, or change the channel. Likewise, Katy Perry has every right to Tweet that she found Lady Gaga’s use of blasphemy a cheap ploy rather than an artistic choice. I question Lady Gaga’s taste level as well but not her commitment to her art. I think that Lady Gaga is a provocateur and I do love her music.
Tip: Just because you can say it, doesn’t mean you should..
Why does the British royal family have such universal appeal? What are your thoughts on the kind of king William will make one day?
Part costume drama and part soap opera, the British royal family is fascinating to watch. What little girl doesn’t dream of marrying a prince one day, however remote the possibility? For beautiful and smart Kate Middleton, the fairy-tale will soon come true when she marries Prince William. He seems to have a good head on his shoulders and is brave and charitable. I think William will make a fantastic King.
Tip: When addressing a King or Queen use Your Majesty or Your Royal Majesty the first time in conversation, followed by sir/madam or ma’am.
