The craziest things celebrities have done with their money
The 6 most bizarre things celebrities have bought
It seems that those that earn large, live large, and this is especially true for some of the most successful contemporary pop artists, who splurge out on bizarre and ludicrous goods – often spending thousands, if not millions of dollars, to satisfy their absurd need for material gain. This article takes a look at some of the craziest things that celebrities including Lady Gaga, Chris Brown and Beyoncé, have spent their dough on.
Anyone who has ever heard of or seen Lady Gaga will know that she is quite a bizarre, eccentric character. Whether she’s arriving at the 2010 Video Music Awards in a dress made up entirely of raw meat, or showing up at the Grammy Awards in a giant see-through egg, she is notorious for her out-there antics, which are not limited to her public escapades. She is equally extravagant with her money – of which she has mounds. Unfortunately, though, her common sense and discretion do not match her dollars, as is evident by her purchase of a $50,000 “EMF meter” which she uses to ward off evil spirits. You read that correctly. Perhaps not the wisest thing to splurge her cash on, but she could always make that money back by playing table games at Euro Palace.
The iconic vocalist of the massively successful Irish rock band, U2, Paul David Hewson (known by his stage name, Bono), was in Italy when he realized that he’s left his favourite hat back home in London. Instead of buying a new one, he instead paid a whopping $1,700 for a plane ticket to fly his beloved hat to him.
There’s no doubt that the Queen B is a regular fashionista, and she often looks impeccable no matter where she is – whether she’s dazzling on the red carpet or nonchalantly stepping out an elevator after her hubby’s controversial attack by Solange. Ever cool and collected, this lady knows how to keep it together. In keeping with her sassy diva status, she once splurged on a pair of leggings that set her back $100,000. Yes, that’s right. One, hundred. Thousand. Dollars. For tights!
This prima donna splashes out approximately $1 million annually on her hair. Considering the amount of drastic hair-style changes she undergoes on a weekly basis, this figure is not surprising. What is surprising, however, is that she still has hair on her head.
Kanye West is known for being overly conceited, and is notorious for expounding some controversial quotes, whether he’s dissing Taylor Swift or boasting that he’s the “number one human being in music”, this cat has no qualms over telling everybody how amazing he is, and he doesn’t hesitate to show it, either. The fact that he got his bottom row of teeth replaced with diamonds and gold doesn’t seem particularly out of character, then.
It’s true that boys love their toys, and Chris Brown is no exception. He once purchased a $1.5 million Bugatti Veyron, a seriously flashy ride, which he has added to his already extensive collection, which includes a Chevy Impala, a Viper, a ‘Jet Fighter’ Lambo, a Range Rover, a Porsche Panamera, a Porsche Turbo and a Lamborghini Aventador.
