      Don’t get me wrong, Christopher……I LOVE Beyonce and always will (Jay Z you can have) and I’m honestly not trying to single them out. I used to love incredibly overbuilt, absurd, gigantic houses like this but I’ve gotten older and smarter. The majority of the ultra rich of this country have been, are and guaranteed most likely will forever be eternally marinated in possessed and obsessed by their own choosing with uncontrolled materialism and ego. I now find airports like this pitifully masquerading as single family homes absolutely disgusting. The excess is so far past mind boggling that it defies description. I thoroughly believe though, that they won’t be in it for 5 years. The vast majority of the mega rich don’t keep these gargantuan houses for long at all…once they’ve been in them for a little while and have to pay the tens of thousands of dollars in upkeep just per month and how they’ll really never use the entire house all at the same time, just once. I’m much more impressed with a considerably smaller house that is impeccably designed, decorated and furnished from start to finish and is actually fully lived in and utilized even just 75% of the time.

        Yes;I agree completely. I’m sure they won’t be in this house long at all. I think that if the ultra rich built a tastefully homes around maybe 4000 sq. ft. and expanded the house as their family grew like back in the day; We’d see a lot less of these shopping malls with bedrooms.
