Celebrities truly are a breed of their own! Wonderwall.com rounded up several recent examples of how stars are nothing like us, starting with the latest extravagant behavior from the First Family of Reality TV… As any Kardashian knows, it's never too soon to start making money off of your children. TMZ reported on Feb. 18, 2019, that Kim Kardashian West, Khloe Kardashian and Kylie Jenner filed paperwork to trademark the names of their offspring: Kim's kids with Kanye West (Saint West, North West and Chicago West), Khloe's daughter with Tristan Thompson (True Thompson) and Kylie's daughter with Travis Scott (Stormi Webster). According to the webloid, the trio filed paperwork to reserve the rights to use their tots' names on "a number of products" including clothing lines, toys and skincare products. Kylie also filed a trademark for "Stormiworld," the theme of her little girl's first birthday party. Speaking of which…
Kylie Jenner "had to go all out" for daughter Stormi Webster's first birthday on Feb. 1, 2019. On Feb. 9, the makeup mogul threw an epic theme-park-inspired birthday bash dubbed Stormi's World — inspired by the name of dad Travis Scott's "Astroworld" album and tour — complete with a giant inflatable tunnel modeled to look like the baby girl's head, rides, carnival games, a giant teddy-bear wall, a performance by a "Baby Shark" dance crew, a ball pit, custom "tour merch" and countless Instagram-worthy decorations, which you can see here. If this is what a first birthday party looks like, just imagine Stormi's Sweet 16!
Here's more proof that Stormi Webster is rolling in it… In mid-February 2019, Kylie Jenner took to her Instagram Story to show off her 1 year old's impressive new bling from her dad, Travis Scott — a diamond chain featuring a lightning-bolt design. "Look at what your daddy got you, girl. You're just too cute," the reality star gushed in a video of her little one rocking her new drip.

Stormi's not the only celebritot who had an epic birthday… Simon Cowell also dropped the big bucks on his little one's birthday party. According to The Sun, he spent nearly $40K on son Eric's "The Greatest Showman"-themed 5th birthday bash at the Mandarin Oriental hotel in London on Feb. 16. "Simon spared no expense in making sure it was the perfect occasion for little Eric. The kids got to sing their favorite songs from the film and the whole place was decked out just like the circus," said a spy. "Everyone was joking that Simon was like Hugh Jackman's character because he was the ringmaster. Loads of celebrities were invited with their families and Eric's own friends came too."
Gucci Mane won Valentine's Day 2019. The rapper splashed out on a 60-carat sparkler for wife Keyshia Ka'oir Davis that's estimated to be worth multiple millions of dollars. "To my beautiful wife @KeyshiaKaoir Davis. For all the Valentines I missed I wanted to upgrade your wedding ring to this 60ct flawless oval ROCK💎#Brrr," he captioned a video of the jaw-dropping bling on Instagram. It was the least he could do considering the fact that just a few days earlier, Keyshia gifted him a 35-carat pinky ring worth more than $1 million for his 39th birthday on Feb. 12. "My wife just froze my pinky 35ct 💎 Brrrrrrr," he captioned a video of the pinky rock.
In other impressive-bling news, the floral-inspired ring that Orlando Bloom gave Katy Perry when he popped the question on Valentine's Day 2019 — a pink oval-shaped gem surrounded by eight circular diamonds set in yellow gold — reportedly cost somewhere between $300K (if the center stone is a ruby) and $6M (if it's a pink diamond). Either way, color us impressed!
On Feb. 10, 2019, Priyanka Chopra told "Extra" that she planned to travel to London for 48 hours just so she could see her new husband, Nick Jonas, on Valentine's Day. "I'm going to be in London, because Nick is going to be working in London so I am going in for two days to hang out," she said. Imagine flying across the planet just to see your Valentine for two days!
Drake is bringing new meaning to "Hotline Bling." He recently commissioned Jason of Beverly Hills to create a custom diamond-encrusted 18k white-gold iPhone X case featuring the OVO owl logo with diamonds for eyes. According to Page Six, the phone accessory set him back $400K. "Because we can't do basic! Diamond iPhone case cover for our friend @champagnepapi," the jeweler captioned a slideshow on Instagram in mid-February 2019.
Drake also made headlines on Jan. 26, 2019, when a fan tweeted a picture of him visiting a McDonald's, where he allegedly "gave two female employees $10,000 each… in cash." A CNN reporter checked in with a representative for the fast-food chain to get the scoop on the massive tip, and while it turns out the superstar didn't tip $20K in one night, his gift is still pretty darn considerate: "He gave them $100 each," Chloe Melas tweeted on Jan. 30.
Kanye West booked Kenny G to serenade wife Kim Kardashian West on Valentine's Day 2019. The reality star took to her Instagram Story to share multiple videos of the jazz musician performing in their living room while surrounded by hundreds of roses — each stem in a vase of its own. Kenny told TMZ that Ye reached out via email around 11 p.m. on Feb. 13 to set up the surprise performance. "As far as I'm concerned, it's just from one heart to the other," the multi-instrumentalist told the webloid when asked if he received compensation for his efforts. "I'm so flattered to be asked — whoever asks me. Valentine's Day is such a special time, so if I can bring some more joy to somebody Valentine's Day, that's great. It was really just from one guy to another guy."
Jennifer Aniston celebrated her 50th birthday as only a true superstar can. First, she hosted a star-studded bash in Los Angeles on Feb. 9, 2019. On hand for the A-list affair were ex-husband Brad Pitt, ex-boyfriend John Mayer, Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom, George Clooney and wife Amal Clooney, Brad's other ex Gwyneth Paltrow, Kate Hudson, Reese Witherspoon, Robert Downey Jr., Demi Moore, Courteney Cox, Ellen DeGeneres, Keith Richards, Barbra Streisand and Laura Dern. Then she and 11 friends — including Courteney Cox, Amanda Anka (Jason Bateman's wife) and Molly McNearney (Jimmy Kimmel's wife) — jetted off to Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, to keep the party going. But the trip didn't exactly go off without a hitch: The crew's G4 private jet was forced to make an emergency landing after losing a wheel or tire during takeoff. That'll certainly puts a damper on your A-list party week!
Kendall Jenner is so dedicated to supporting her boyfriend, Ben Simmons, and his basketball team, the 76ers, she booked a private helicopter to transport her from New York City to Philadelphia to watch them take on the Los Angeles Lakers on Feb. 10, 2019.

Cardi B took to Twitter on Feb. 5, 2019, to rant about haters and how they react to how she chooses to spend her money. In the process, she revealed that she spends between $250K and $300K a month. "You know what I hate? I hate when celebrities do something very extravagant, buy something very luxurious, [and] there's people in the comments like, 'You could have donated that,' or 'We going backwards. You could have done this and that with your money.' It's like, who are you to tell people what to do with their hardworking a– money?" she said. "First of all, do you know that artists, celebrities, the IRS out of every check that you make, they automatically take 45 percent of your check? That means in order to spend $500,000, you gotta make at least a million. A lot of artists like me and a lot of rappers that I know, they literally take care of their whole family and that's not tax [deductible] because the IRS don't consider that a 'business.' On top of that, being an artist, looking good for ya, doing all this extra s— to please ya, that s— costs money. Like me, for example, my bills is like … about $300,000 or $250,000 every single month, and I try to put it cheaper and it's just, it's not."
Here's more proof that Cardi B is nothing like us: Art Fleur owner Annie Wonderlich gifted the rapper a $600 arrangement featuring more than 250 flowers — including monstera leaves covered in 24k-gold paint (but of course) — for the 2019 Grammys on Feb. 10. The arrangement, which measures in at three and a half feet tall, made headlines when the "Money" rapper publicly thanked Tom Petty, who was quoted on the card, for the gift. Unlike the rest of the world, Cardi apparently had no idea that the iconic rocker passed away in October 2017. "Thank you, Tom Petty, for the flowers," she said on her Instagram Story. "The flowers are very big. I wanna say 'thank you so much' [and this is] such a beautiful note."
In other jaw-dropping Grammy-related Cardi B news: The rapper's over-the-top look for music's biggest night on Feb. 10, 2019, included a manicure featuring nearly 200 Swarovski crystals . Nail artist Jenny Bui told PopSugar that she used between 16 and 21 crystals per finger to bring the rapper's vision to life. "She wanted the nails to look elegant," said the manicurist. "We worked from 10 p.m. to 4:30 a.m., but that's because we kept stopping," she added, explaining that the process would've only taken an hour if there hadn't been so many interruptions. A six-and-a-half-hour manicure? Only in the life of Cardi B.
Cardi B's baby daughter, Kulture, has also taken to enjoying the finer things in life. On Jan. 27, 2019, the rapper took to Instagram to share a photo of herself holding her 6-month-old infant on a private jet. In the sweet shot, Kulture is wearing an $830 Versace onesie… which she'll likely outgrow within the next few months. "I gotta fly I need a jet yea I need room for my legs, I got a baby I need some money … I need cheese for my egg," the proud mama wrote in the caption.
Kulture's not the only celebri-baby flying high… Andy Cohen's son, Benjamin Allen, arrived on Feb. 4, 2019. Just four days later, it was time for baby's first ride on a private jet. The Bravo star took to Instagram to share a photo of himself and his newborn baby boy modeling his new "#DadGear" while aboard a private plane.
While having her makeup done by artist Mario Dedivanovic during The Master Class in Los Angeles on Feb. 9, 2019, Kim Kardashian West revealed her totally practical and not-at-all-ridiculous secret to wrinkle-free skin: "Don't smile," she said. To be fair, she also spends thousands of dollars each year on skincare products, facials and laser treatments. But sure, looking miserable all the time will also do the trick.
After appearing on stage during the 2019 Grammys on Feb. 10, John Mayer decided he needed a haircut. So he got a quick snip before hitting up an afterparty. "You might be aware that I got my hair cut in between since I last saw you last, in between the Grammys and now," he said on Instagram Live. "I got my hair cut because I looked back at a picture from the Grammys and I said, 'That won't do. I need another haircut.' Which makes this the ballerist thing I've ever done. I used the Grammy Awards telecast as a mirror. He used the Grammy Awards show as a mirror. He checked his hair in the Grammy Awards and then he got his hair cut. Top that." Sadly, we don't think we can.
Several media outlets reported in mid-February 2019 that the Royal Horticultural Society will debut a flower named after Duchess Meghan, the Clematis Meghan, during the Chelsea Flower Show in May. According to its official RHS bio, the climber, which features "rich and opulent magenta-purple" flowers, "is an exquisite new large-flowering clematis that will usually offer two flowering seasons each year — the first being the most prolific in late spring or early summer (around the time of [Meghan and Prince Harry's] wedding), but then again in early autumn." The RHS adds that the Clematis Meghan "will really make an impact when planted in borders or larger pots."
On the Feb. 13, 2019, episode of "The Ellen DeGeneres Show," Jennifer Lopez dished on the "really sweet" gift she received from boyfriend Alex Rodriguez for their second anniversary in early February. After revealing how "obsessed" she is with "Fixer Upper" and stars Chip Gaines and Joanna Gaines, J.Lo said that she and A-Rod "actually got a little fixer upper next to the water." Continued the singer-actress, "We were like, 'Oh, we gotta fix this up.' It's really a house that needs work. I was like, 'Wouldn't it be amazing to, like, have [Joanna] do it for us.' But she doesn't do anything outside of Waco [in Texas], like, nothing. … I didn't even know that, honestly, that Alex listens to me half the time when I'm talking and stuff. So I'm, like, talking to my friends or my sister or whatever over Christmas, and then comes our anniversary … it was like a Sunday, and he was like, 'I want you to do a meeting. … I want you to do this meeting with us for this architect for the house.' … He opens up the FaceTime, and it's Joanna Gaines." After expressing how much she struggled to maintain her composure, Jennifer admitted that she "totally fan-girled out" on Joanna. "I'm looking at [Alex], and I was like, 'Oh, you listen to me. I love you. You are so amazing.' It really blew me away. That, to me, is more romantic than anything. He was, like, trying to get her on the phone. … It was amazing."

Travis Scott showered Kylie Jenner with Valentine's Day gifts two days early — on Feb. 12, 2019. The makeup mogul took to her Instagram Story to show off the elaborate floral arrangements from her beau: a tunnel comprised of four heart-shaped arches adorned with red roses descending in size with a heart-shaped neon sign at the center. Good luck fitting even one of those arches into the average person's home.
During a joint interview with W magazine that hit the Internet on Feb. 8, 2019, Barbara Palvin and Dylan Sprouse revealed that they had their first date in China six months after meeting at a party in New York.

Barbara was also due in China for work, but when her gig fell through, she decided to meet Dylan there anyway. Can you imagine traveling halfway around the world for someone you've only met once?!
Chance the Rapper closed down the Barneys New York flagship store in Chicago on Feb. 11, 2019, to treat his fiancée, Kirsten Corley, to a private shopping spree.

In a blog post that hit the Internet on Feb. 9, 2019, Martha Stewart dished on a recent project she undertook with the help of her assistant, Shqipe Berisha: reorganizing the "basement dressing room" at her "Winter House," a farm in Bedford, New York. "Because of the nature of my job, I have a very large wardrobe, and there isn't one single space in my home that accommodates everything. So, in addition to my expansive closet upstairs, this section of my very large basement is dedicated to additional clothes, shoes, cosmetics and other beauty care supplies," she wrote, adding that an entire wall of the basement is lined with shelves of shoes, while cosmetics and beauty products are "thrown in wherever there is room" in various drawers and bins. "One by one, Shqipe removes items from the bins and re-categorizes every item, reevaluat[ing] what is still usable and discarding items that are too old or expired," wrote Martha, acknowledging that "this process is tedious." She then shared photos of the finished product, revealing that Shqipe had, in fact, sorted every product by type… including enema kits.
Bella Thorne revealed in mid-January 2019 that her six-bedroom home in Los Angeles — dubbed the Trippy Twins Fun House — is now available to rent as a shooting location. "Welcome to my crib! Whether you are looking for an interesting tour in LA, throwing a party, or need a location for your photo or film production, we are here to serve you!" she wrote on her home's official Instagram account. Page Six reported on Feb. 12 that the actress now plans to offer guided tours of her home — which she bought in late 2016 with the money she made from endorsement deals on social media — for $50 per person. Those looking for more than a quick trip to the "fun house" can rent the property for $150 an hour for a film shoot or $250 an hour for a photo shoot, though a video shoot longer than six hours will set you back $4,000. Bella is also offering a catering package.

The makeup mogul relies on Postmates for everything from coffee and alcohol to meals and ingredients, and she once ordered a single carrot from Bristol Farms.
When we fly economy, it's called "a normal means of transportation." When Timothee Chalamet flies economy, it's called "headline-making news." On Feb. 5, 2019, a starstruck fan live-tweeted her experience sitting next to the Oscar nominee on a three-hour flight. (It's unclear where exactly they were traveling.) The lucky fan eventually worked up the courage to chat up the 23-year-old actor, who allegedly offered to FaceTime "Beautiful Boy" co-star Steve Carell.

"Ace of Cakes" chef Duff Goldman really brought his cake game to his wedding: He and Johnna Colbry served five cakes during their reception after tying the knot at the Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County on Jan. 19, 2019. According to Martha Stewart Weddings, the groom's cake was comprised of four different layers of meat: meatball, meatloaf, lamb schwarma and Pennsylvania scrapple — which, according to Wikipedia, is "a mush of pork scraps and trimmings combined with cornmeal, flour and spices." The layers were then "frosted with mashed potatoes and topped with bacon roses." Yum?
