It’s ironic that the two people most likely to be chosen as fantasy stranded-on-a-desert-island partners have chosen each other. (Selfish sods.) According to Ahlan! Live.com, Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt have purchased their own private island with the world’s so-exclusive-it’s-eponymous address.
Situated off the cost of Dubai in the Arabian Sea, The World (as the island complex is called) is the brainchild of state-owned developers Nakheel. Consisting of over 300 hundred islands, it was formed using 90% reclaimed land and is fast becoming the “it” destination for the Robb Report set.
So, which island did Brangelina snap up? Ethiopia — I guess to honor their two-year-old daughter, Zahara. And given that its owners are more into humanitarianism then hedonism, I’m not expecting an island of jet skis and other obnoxious luxury toys. Word is, the couple will use their island as a base for their environmental work and to promote a greener lifestyle.
Which makes them very “G”.
