Man Amma OKs Ben Lee's Extra Income
File under: Gurus to the Stars and The Siddhi of PR
Australian pop-folk singer and guru groupie Ben Lee has popped the question to girlfriend Ione Skye, former wife of Beastie Boy Adam "Adrock" Horovitz, after getting permission from his miracle-mongering fauxru, Amma Narayani:
"After blabbering through my question, stating my fears of neglecting my career and spiritual path, running through the pros and cons, Amma told me: 'The purpose of marriage in human life is to build a family. Partnership is not just for enjoyment, as it is for animals. Once you understand this, it will not take you off your path. Marriage will be good for Ben'."Especially the extra income working actress Skye will be bringing in. Cha-ching! And just in the nick of time! The man has got expensive miracles to stage.
The guru continued: "In the past, Ben has wavered on his path as he didn't have support. Ione understands his job and profession and can support him. She is spiritually connected to the divine. There should not be any problem with Ben and Ione. Every marriage has adjustments. You cannot plan for everything in life. But it can be smooth. Ben can ask Ione. Amma will bless everything."
But we found ourselves even more distressed by the fact that the "nice news" was greeted without a single smidge of snark by Defamer's little brother in Australia. Where is this world headed when a Gawker-branded website is actually nice about something as ridiculous as this?
