When you have a private jet, it means you've made it… so what does it mean when you get a private jet for free? You'd have to ask Drake, who in May 2019 was given a 767 Boeing airplane by Canada-based airline Cargojet, according to TMZ. The plane, which has been nicknamed "Air Drake" and customized with the rapper's OVO owl as well as luxe decor, retails for up to $200 million. The company reportedly feels the plane pays for itself thanks to the publicity attached to Drake's name, which means he just needs to travel the world and take pictures of his aircraft. Must be nice!

With delivery services popping up everywhere, we can all feel like royalty by having our groceries brought to our home. But as fancy as we try to be, chances are that all of us have to go pick up our own milk every now and again. Someone who hasn't purchased their own groceries in, well… maybe ever? Queen Elizabeth II! In May 2019, the British monarch visited a replica of an original Sainsbury store in honor of the company's 150th anniversary. The newest innovations in the store's self-service checkout were on display, which puzzled Her Majesty. "You can't trick it? You can't cheat?" she reportedly asked a staffer while looking at the self-service checkout kiosk, something she'd clearly never seen before.

Want a beauty tip from Dolly Parton? Sleep with your makeup on! You heard right — despite hearing our whole lives from beauty experts that you must wash off your makeup before bed, this superstar claims she waits until the morning to clean her face. She told The New York Times about her routine in June 2019 and had a pretty interesting reason that really only applies to celebs: "I clean my face in the mornings. You never know if you're going to wreck the bus, you never know if you're going to be somewhere in a hotel and there's going to be a fire. So I leave my makeup on at night and clean my face in the morning."

It's good to be Kylie Jenner's friend! The reality star and beauty mogul recently gifted her trusted makeup artist Ariel Tejada a diamond ring for his birthday. And not just any diamond ring — a ring he specifically noted he'd been obsessed with at XIV Karats. Ariel told the story on Instagram afterward, noting that he'd had his eye on the bling for six months and had been going into the store to see it every other week. So it turns out even the stars' makeup artists are nothing like us!
If you're a famous face, you can recruit other famous faces to surprise your loved ones. Case in point: Adam Sandler's daughter Sadie celebrated her bat mitzvah in early 2019, and the star tapped pal Adam Levine — last minute, no less — to come sing some songs for her big party. Adam opened up about it to "Entertainment Tonight" in June, sharing that all he had to do was send a text. "He's just such a good dude," Adam gushed of the Maroon 5 frontman. "I texted him, he responded right away, and said, 'Yeah, I'll come by.'" It helped that Adam is a Los Angeles local and was in town. "He grew up out here, he used to go to bar mitzvahs at this place we did it at, and he swung by, did three songs and the crowd, of every age, was going crazy — kids, adults," Adam said.
Gotta stop the leaks! When Rihanna decided it was time to record a new album, the superstar reportedly rented herself a private island. According to Britain's Mirror, Rihanna rented Osea island, which is located in an estuary in Essex near London — and it costs more than $25,000 a day. It comes equipped with a state-of-the-art studio where she can record in privacy, plus cottages where her friends, family and team can stay over. Despite the island being equipped for plenty of people, a source told the outlet that she's very focused on her music.
Ventriloquist dolls are just creepy, even when they're crafted in the likeness of Timothee Chalamet. Yep, if you're a famous heartthrob, sometimes you inspire doll makers to create something that looks like you — in this case, a Timothee ventriloquist figure that hit eBay in June. It's even wearing a replica of the actor's 2019 Golden Globes Louis Vuitton ensemble, complete with the harness. The most interesting fact about this creepy creation? The starting bid to buy it on eBay was $122,795. (Spoiler alert: No one bought it!)
You've heard the phrase "wash that man right out of your hair." But what about washing him out of your mansion? That's what Khloe Kardashian did in early 2019, clearing out every trace of ex Tristan Thompson by remodeling her entire home. Khloe vacated the house for months while it got a facelift and referenced the revamp on her Instagram Story in early June, explaining that the organizational company The Home Edit was helping get her Calabasas home in order. A source told People magazine that the renovations "didn't really have anything to do with Tristan," but we say decide for yourself.
This one comes as no surprise: When tapped with curating a gift guide for Father's Day for ex Kourtney Kardashian's Poosh website, Scott Disick came up with an over-the-top list. Among the items? An $89 three-pack of plain T-shirts, a $600 caviar set, a $1,000 set of knives, a $3,025 Bottega Veneta briefcase and, well, a $10,500 office lounger. This reality TV family is truly nothing like the rest of us.
How much is your shoe collection worth? We're willing to bet the answer isn't $3 million, but that's what Migos member Quavo recently claimed of his own stash. When the rapper appeared on Complex's "Sneaker Shopping" series, he boasted that his footwear collection is worth $3 million and showed off some very rare pairs, including the original Yeezys by Nike that now sell for more than $10,000.
Another star with an impressive fleet of shoes? Celine Dion! The star revealed to late-night host James Corden on a May 2019 "Carpool Karaoke" segment that she has perhaps 10,000 pairs of shoes stored in a warehouse in Las Vegas. Yep, though she didn't want to volunteer just how many she owns, he pushed until she gave up that estimation. And it turns out a warehouse isn't actually the only place she's stored her footwear: Celine explained that at her old home in Florida, she had a computer system that opened doors and turned shelves to show off all her footwear selections so she could choose. And in front of that closet, she had a counter made of glass and crushed diamonds — "not real diamonds," Celine noted, "just to make sure that you don't think I'm that loco."
One problem us regular folk fortunately don't have to face? The cost to repair our $2 million Bugatti. Tracy Morgan learned just how expensive it can be to maintain a multimillion dollar car after he was involved in an accident in his brand new Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport in June 2019. Though it was just a fender-bender — a Honda CR-V hit the side of his car when both tried to turn right on a New York City street minutes after he drove off the lot in his new ride — the damage added up to more than the price of the car that hit him. It's $22,000 to replace the damaged front bumper and $10,000 to replace the damaged fender on the driver-side quarter panel… plus the cost of labor, TMZ reported. Ouch.
Oh, to be Cardi B's baby! The rapper took to Instagram in May 2019 to share that she spent $80,000 buying jewelry for 10-month-old daughter Kulture. Among the tot's new pieces? Nine diamond tennis bracelets in white, yellow and rose gold and a pair of diamond stud earrings.
Who doesn't love a present for no reason? In 2019, Kylie Jenner's boyfriend Travis Scott gave her a diamond-encrusted Audemars Piguet Royal Oak watch as a random gift. The spontaneous present had a pretty insane price tag, reportedly costing around $50,000. But that's just a day in the life of Kylie, who also has watches by the same designer, Royal Oak, that cost more than $72,000.
Well, this one makes sense! Who better to buy the house of a celeb than another celeb? In late May 2019, it was revealed that Ellen DeGeneres had purchased Adam Levine and Behati Prinsloo's Beverly Hills pad for a pretty penny: $45 million. Ellen put one of her own homes (that she owns with wife Portia de Rossi) on the market, which, compared to her new place, seems like a steal at just $17.9 million. Worried about where Adam will now hang his hat? Don't be: He's already picked up Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck's old marital home in the Pacific Palisades area of Los Angeles for $32 million.
