Think you and your favorite celebs have SO much in common? Well, we hate to be the bearers of bad news, but you probably don't. Sure, your favorite color might be the same, but often times, that's where the similarities end. Wonderwall.com rounded up some of the most compelling reasons why stars are are nothing like the rest of us, starting with this revelation: According to Ed Sheeran, Beyonce changes her email address every week. "I have an email address [for her. It] actually changes every week. She's very good at [hiding]," he told "Entertainment Tonight" on Dec. 1, 2017, while discussing how he and the superstar communicated while collaborating on his song "Perfect." (If anyone could keep track of a constantly moving inbox, it's Queen B!) But that's not the only way Beyonce recently proved she's nothing like us…
No yoga pants and a cozy sweater for Beyonce! The superstar travels in EXTREME style. On Dec. 11, 2017, Queen B shared photos of the two ensembles she wore while traveling with hubby JAY-Z on their private plane (naturally) and the total cost of her two outfits is staggering, to say the least. According to E! News, Beyonce's two looks are worth nearly $23K. Her first ensemble consisted of a $720 Gucci AC/DC band tee, a pair of $850 Gucci cutoff shorts, a Dolce & Gabbana denim jacket worth more than $3K and a pair of $3,495 Saint Laurent boots. The second outfit included a $495 Balenciaga T-shirt, a $1K hoodie and a $10K pair of Saint Laurent boots. But wait! That's not the only reason why Beyonce is nothing like us…
For many Americans, weekend runs to Target are part of everyday life. For Beyonce, they're headline-making news. The superstar completely failed to fly under the radar during a trip to a Target store in San Clemente, California, with mom Tina Knowles and daughter Blue Ivy Carter on Dec. 7, 2017. Queen B wore sunglasses as she checked out the baby and toy departments, where a few lucky fans managed to catch her on camera. Just another day in the extravagant life of Beyonce!

Westbury New Road, the street on which Rihanna grew up in Bridgetown, Barbados, has now officially been renamed Rihanna Drive. Freundel Stuart, the Prime Minister of Barbados, hosted a renaming ceremony, which the singer attended, on Nov. 29, 2017 — the island nation's Independence Day. (Hey, not all of us can claim the distinction of being our home country's national treasure!)
How chic is Duchess Kate? So chic that not even yard work could sway her from switching out of her fancy footwear. Prince William's missus wore a pair of brown Penelope Chilvers boots, which retail for $600, while gardening with some school children in London during an official engagement in late November 2017. (We're sure the royal shoe shiner had a thing or two to say about this!)
Sarah Paulson is part of one of the most epic group texts of all time. The Emmy winner texts regularly with her "Ocean's Eight" castmates including Sandra Bullock, Rihanna, Anne Hathaway, Cate Blanchett, Mindy Kaling, Helena Bonham Carter and Awkwafina. "I'm not going to lie, it is a very cool chain to be part of," she told The Edit during an interview that went live in December 2017. "We can go weeks without a chirp, then someone sends one message, and it's like — 'brp, brp, brp' — your phone just blows up for hours." Sarah first opened up about the "Ocean's Eight" group text back in January: "The things that are going on in this text chain, you would lose your mind," she told "Entertainment Tonight." Oh, to be a fly on the iPhone screen!
The New York Post reported on Dec. 6, 2017, that Leonardo DiCaprio came very close to dropping $850K on a Basquiat drawing during Art Basel Miami. He reportedly spent about 45 minutes discussing the piece, which measures 76 x 56 centimeters, with an art advisor. Also on hand during the negotiation process? "Two blonde models who looked very much Leo's type," a source tattled to the New York Post. "[They] came and talked to his posse for a bit." When it comes to the "Titanic" actor, would you expect anything less?! Spending nearly $1M on a single piece of art while hanging out with blonde models is just another day in Leo Land!
So much for an intimate affair with family and friends! TMZ reported on Dec. 1, 2017, that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's May 2018 nuptials will be televised for all the world to see. The duo are set to tie the knot at St. George's Chapel at Windsor Castle in London. (Around 50 million people tuned in from America and the U.K. when Prince William and Duchess Kate made it official back in 2011.)
Air Jordans? Small potatoes! Nike is recognizing Serena Williams' legacy to sports by naming a new building on their Portland campus in her honor. On Dec. 7, 2017, the tennis champ took to Instagram to gush about the news: "What a year it has been. First a grand slam win followed by a awesome baby… than the most magical wedding. What next? How about a building!!" she wrote. "Nike announced yesterday that one of its new world headquarters buildings will be named after me. It will be the biggest on campus and is scheduled to open in 2019. I am honored and grateful!" Suddenly, having a line of athletic shoes bear your name sounds a whole lot less impressive, huh?
In early December 2017, The Blast obtained legal documents that revealed Shannon Beador spends more than $55K a month, which is obviously much more than many Americans earn in a year. (Her spending habits came to light as part of her divorce proceedings from estranged husband David Beador.) According to the report, the star of "The Real Housewives of Orange County" spends $12K a month on rent, more than $10K a month on laundry and cleaning services and more than $10K a month on entertainment, gifts and vacations. Must be nice.
Think of all the things you could do with $250K! According to a late November 2017 report, that's how much Miranda Kerr has dropped in anticipation of her new addition, the baby she's expecting with husband Evan Spiegel in 2018. A source told Life & Style that the model's expenses include a custom crib and a walk-in closet filled with designer baby clothes from Dior, Stella McCartney and Ralph Lauren. "She isn't holding back when it comes to giving her newborn the best of the best!" said the source. Lucky baby.
You get a car! You get a car! You get a car! And Gayle King gets a live-in nanny. Being besties with Oprah Winfrey clearly has its perks. In late November 2017, Gayle revealed during an appearance on "Watch What Happens Live" that back in the '90s, when she welcomed her second child just 11 months after giving birth to her first little one, her longtime pal hired a live-in nanny for her to help ease the burden of raising two babies at once. Gayle added that she "never could have afforded" the nanny without O's assistance. Us neither, Gayle!
In late November 2017, Cardi B revealed during a BBC radio interview that her wedding to Migos rapper Offset will be a $1M affair. "I feel like my wedding dress itself is going to be at least $50,000… it's got to be extravagant," she said. (Is it any wonder, considering her engagement ring reportedly cost a whopping $550K?)
Chris Brown outraged the Internet when he revealed on Instagram in early December 2017 that he'd gotten a baby capuchin monkey as a pet. According to a TMZ source, the troubled rapper acquired the animal as an homage to his idol, Michael Jackson, who famously kept a pet chimpanzee named Bubbles, as well as several other exotic animals at his Neverland Ranch. Hey, why adopt a shelter dog when you can keep a wild animal in your home? (According to a 2005 report from Slate, a baby capuchin will set you back between $5K and $7K.)
A simple "I'm single" would've sufficed, but Lindsay Lohan had this to say when she was asked about her relationship status by E! News in December 2017: "I'm married to the UAE." Well, alrighty then! (It remains to be seen if the UAE recognizes — or has consented to — this union.) The "Mean Girls" actress, who's developed a curious attachment to the nation in recent years, also dished on what she loves about her new home. "I feel very safe in Dubai," she said. "And it's very convenient for me to see the family I work with in Istanbul when I'm there; I have a lot of projects I'm working on that will take place/are filming there. It's a really, really beautiful world." She added that she also spends a lot of time in Thailand — because obviously.
Farrah Abraham has big plans for her little girl. In December 2017, the reality TV star decided that her daughter, Sophia, will no longer appear on "Teen Mom OG." "Sophia is not going to continue to talk about sex and unplanned pregnancies and all that stuff," Farrah told InTouch. "So she'll go on to do something better and hopefully she'll be doing makeup brands or clothing." We wholeheartedly agree that the 8 year old should not be talking about "sex and unplanned pregnancies and all that stuff," but doing makeup brands and clothing? Maybe doing elementary school is a better bet.
How much is your makeup bag worth? The 80-pound one belonging to Mario Dedivanovic — a makeup artist who works with Kim Kardashian West, Demi Lovato, Mary J. Blige, Kate Bosworth, Gabrielle Union and Megyn Kelly — is worth $10K. That's how much he offered for its return after the kit went missing at an airport in New York City in late November 2017. "That kit is my life," Mario wrote on Instagram on Nov. 23. "So many brushes that I've had for 15+ years. I'm offering a $10,000 reward for the return of my kit. Whoever has it please find it in your heart to return it." (Hey, that's enough to buy a decent used car!)
