Oprah and enlightenment

"In just half an hour, Oprah earns enough money to buy a car."

Watch the slide show to see how much celebrities earn and what they can buy with their earnings. Though not directly Buddhist related, it's interesting to think about this (and money in general) from a Buddhist perspective. In order to reach enlightenment, the Buddha relinquished his life of luxury in the palace for a life of asceticism among monastics. I wonder if anyone nowadays would be able to sacrifice that.
