Wealth and privilege just an empty life of shopping and boredom for Casey Johnson

What have I ever done to alter this world? What will people say? ‘Oh, she had a lot of shoes’?"

SHOOT: Why we ought to be more than 'consumers'? Because it is a hollow life that makes us unhappy.
Tila Tequila and Casey Johnson
In an interview with Vanity Fair, the celebrity, who died aged 30, Johnson spoke of family disputes, aimlessness and of looking for a purpose in life.
Johnson told Vanity Fair in 2006, "It’s so boring to do nothing. Believe me, I’ve tried it. It’s, like, how many days a week can you actually go shopping? You get burned out. And you feel like sh*t. You think, What have I ever done to alter this world? What will people say? ‘Oh, she had a lot of shoes’?"
Instead her behavior became increasingly bizarre – publicly fighting with her fifty-something aunt over a boyfriend, then engaging in nightclub catfights with party pals such as Bijou Phillips and Lindsay Lohan, and later having tumultuous lesbian affairs that culminated into her recent engagement to celebrity Tila Tequila.
"I got whatever I wanted," she said. "I got a car when I was 16. I didn’t even have a driver’s license."

Money is the root of all evil- how sad to have it all and yet have absolutely nothing!

Shows you that there are better things to do, or to aspire towards. Also says something about how empty a gold diggers existence is.
