It’s a well-known fact that the average person doesn’t have the ability to spend their money the way celebs tend to spend their money, but it sure is nice to dream. Spending money is a common coping mechanism for those who live their lives in the spotlight, but we don’t all have that opportunity.
Take a moment of your regular life to check in to the lavish. When money is never in short supply, your spending priorities are vastly different. Here is a brief look at some of the most extravagant ways in which today’s celebrities spend their money.
Celebs spend tons of money on their homes
The job of most celebrities keeps them traveling through much of the year, and they still spend fortunes on purchasing a stationary home (or homes). Most people would just pay for a hotel, but that’s not always the style for celebs.
Most celebrity homes cost millions, and they typically come equipped with a pool, tennis court, huge garage, bowling alleys, and even landing pads for their helicopters. Ellen degeneres and her wife Portia put their home on the market for $49 million, and purchased another celeb home for $12 million without ever cashing in on the first home.
Celebrity cars are always expensive
Flashy cars and celebrities go hand in hand. There’s no small spending when it comes to purchasing a car as a famous person. Rich people don’t buy lightly used Hondas to be practical.
For example, in 2010, Birdman bought a Bugatti Veyron for more than two million dollars. Later on in the same year, he bought a Maybach Exelero for $8 million. No big deal.
Personal trainers and cosmetic surgery
When you’re always in the spotlight, it seems vital that you maintain a healthy body. Celebrities will spend more than anyone on making certain that their mortal shell looks like much more than just a shell.
Paying for a personal trainer to the stars can cost more than $10,000 a year, and the price of high quality cosmetic surgery isn’t known to be inexpensive either.
Celebs vacation like no one else
You would think that the lifestyle of a celebrity would provide its own look at different hotspots all around the world. There’s traveling for work, and then there’s traveling for pleasure. Celebrities make this distinction very clear.
Puffy spent $840,000 to rent a yacht for a week in 2011. Ellen and wife Portia spent $137,000 on a vacation to Portofino, Italy.
Celebrity pets and their accessories
Most pet owners “spoil” their animals on occasion with a special treat or a new doggie outfit. Celebrities, however, go the extra mile for their furry friends. Celebrity pets go to pet spas and have their very own wardrobe.
