New York, May 13 (ANI): Being quite vocal about how success has made a difference to her life, Oprah Winfrey told students at Duke University that she loves her private jet and other luxuries that comes with being a celebrity.
In her commencement speech to Duke University’s graduating class, the talk show queen talked about success and her love of the luxe life, according to the Wall Street Journal.
“It’s great to have a nice home. It’s great to have nice homes! It’s great to have a nice home that just escaped the fire in Santa Barbara,” The New York Daily News quoted Oprah as telling the students.
She added: “It’s great to have a private jet. Anyone that tells you that having your own private jet isn’t great is lying to you.”
However, Oprah also discussed a more meaningful side of success.
She said: “You haven’t completed the circle of success until you help someone else move to a higher ground and get to a better place.”
