How much did you spend on your baby's first birthday party? Rappers Cardi B and Offset spared no expense when daughter Kulture turned 1 in July 2019 (though it's no shock when you remember how much Cardi spends on jewelry for the tot)! She shelled out $400,000 on the bash, which featured an elaborate dessert table and a "Word Party"-themed cake, but as luck would have it, it all went down on the same night as New York City's massive power outage. (Fortunately, they had a generator on hand.) Cardi took to Instagram to share party details with fans. Among the gifts Kulture received? A $100,000 diamond chain featuring a "Word Party" characters diamond-and-enamel pendant.

The perks of being a royal! When it came time for Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan to renovate their new home, Frogmore Cottage, it was British taxpayers who footed the bill. The public covered $3.06 million of the couple's upgrades, though they didn't have to pay for everything. When it came time to add "fixtures and fittings" to the five-bedroom home near Windsor Castle, Harry and Meghan picked up the tab, Michael Stevens, the keeper of the Privy Purse, explained.
It's safe to assume that most people don't receive elaborate gifts everywhere they go, but when you're Carrie Underwood, that's just a day in the life. But in June 2019, she got one heck of a surprise when she was gifted a sculpture of herself — made of cheese. Ahead of a Wisconsin concert on her "Cry Pretty" tour, Carrie arrived at the Milwaukee venue to find a massive replica of herself carved into a 40 pound block of cheese backstage. The image was actually a copy of her "Cry Pretty" album art and even included a microphone in her hand and tears falling down her face!
Most moms are excited when their 17-month-old starts talking. But if you're Kylie Jenner, your 17-month-old has already marked a much rarer milestone — her first Harper's Bazaar cover. Stormi Webster, Kylie's daughter with rapper Travis Scott, appeared on the cover of Harper's Bazaar Arabia, which came out on July 1, 2019, with Mom and grandma Kris Jenner!
Who would you guess owns the biggest Chanel bag in the world? Well, unless you said Floyd Mayweather Jr., you'd be wrong! The boxer flaunted his wealth in July 2019 by showing off the bag in question on social media, explaining, "I heard you can get the biggest Chanel bag in the store if you want it; well, this is the biggest Chanel bag in the world." He noted that he received it from the late Karl Lagerfeld. Among the other items he flashed on the video? $1.8 million worth of $100 bills and a diamond-encrusted Audemars Piguet Arnold Schwarzenegger limited-edition watch.
Mindy Kaling celebrated her 40th birthday on June 24, 2019, in seriously generous style! In honor of her milestone year, Mindy took to Twitter to announce that she was donating $1,000 to 40 different charities. She asked followers to help her decide which organizations she should pick, opting for charities focused on things like children's health and nature preservation.
Another star who turned 40 in June 2019? Busy Philipps, who celebrated in a different way — with an extravagant beach vacation she described as a "destination wedding (to myself)." So what, exactly, did these festivities entail? A $1,600 dress, for one, by the brand Zimmermann, plus time in one of the star's self-described "favorite places in the world" — Flora Farms in San Jose del Cabo, Mexico — where dozens of her closest friends partied all night.
When Barbra Streisand needed to go to London for a concert, she couldn't do it without three very special guests — her dogs Miss Scarlet, Miss Violet and Fanny. Yep, the superstar decided to fly her three dogs on a 10,000-miles-round-trip adventure to London in July 2019 then shared a photo of the expensive journey on Instagram. Once the dogs were in Britain, they were treated like royalty — complete with the freedom to roam Barbra's dressing room or have a member of her staff push them around in a stroller or walk them as needed. And if you want to know another way Barbra's world differs dramatically from yours, just remember that two of her dogs, Scarlet and Violet, are clones the singer paid to have created from her late dog Samantha's DNA.
Curious how much rappers make? Let Cardi B break it down for you! The star posted a breakdown of her income on Instagram in July 2019 (though she later deleted it), trying to shut down haters complaining about her decision to perform at various festivals in lieu of a traditional tour. The candid rapper explained just how much she makes per performance — and the results are shocking! She earned more than most people make in years — $300,000 for Bonnaroo in Tennessee, $750,000 for Roskilde in Denmark and $900,000 for Open Air Frauenfeld in Switzerland. She also shared how that differs from what she earns when she tours on her own: Cardi said she makes far less — about $150,000 a show.
Does your job have any perks? "Poldark" star Aidan Turner learned that working on his BBC1 drama had one interesting upside — free furniture! Yep, since the show was in its final season and Aidan had a home to furnish, he got permission from his executive producer to take Ross and Demelza's kitchen table and benches from the Nampara set!
The price is wrong, but very generous! Drew Carey must have really loved the service at dinner because the host of "The Price Is Right" left one very lucky server with a 250 percent tip — $500 on a $200 check — at K Rico Steakhouse in New York City in July 2019.
Celebrities have been known to trademark some crazy things over the years, but Taylor Swift recently took it to the next level. The superstar must have some cat-related merch up her sleeve, because she decided to file for a trademark that covers the name of her newest cat, Benjamin Button. The singer filed to trademark the phrase "Meredith, Olivia and Benjamin Swift," the names of all three of her kitties, giving new meaning to the term "Crazy Cat Lady."
Travis Scott's office will be anything but boring. The rapper recently decorated his office space and purchased an elaborate $50,000 vending machine to go in it — but it isn't anything like the one a few feet from your cubicle! Nope, Travis's vending machine is going to have a 3D spinning hologram of his album cover and a 49-inch touch screen to pick soda options from all over the world plus snacks like Wheaties.
What did you get your dad or husband for Father's Day 2019? Chances are your gift didn't measure up to Ray J's. The singer received a $125,000 souped-up Ford Mustang for the holiday from wife Princess Love, who presented him with the luxurious present a little late (it reportedly was still being customized with things like $1,000 rims and a sleek matte-black finish). We're sure he didn't mind!
We've all tried a fad diet and an exercise craze or two, but singer Grimes just took it to another level. In July 2019, the music star, who's dating Tesla and SpaceX CEO Elon Musk, shared her daily training regimen — and it's not Pilates. It includes one to two hours of sword-fighting plus weight training, a 45-minute hike on an incline and 45 minutes of stretching in order to get her brain to "a neuroplastic goal between 57.5 and 71.5 AphC's," she wrote on Instagram. Aside from stretching for the brain, she also noted that she spends two to four hours a day in a deprivation tank to "astro-glide to other dimensions" and takes tons of supplements. But the weirdest part of her wellness plan? She claims she's eliminated blue light from her vision by having the top layer of film on her eyeball removed and replaced with a lab-made orange layer. Alrighty then…
Oh, to be a 21-year-old billionaire! Kylie Jenner added to her fleet of expensive cars in July 2019 when she purchased a Rolls-Royce Phantom that retails for more than $450,000. She later showed off more of her luxurious wheels on Instagram, sitting on top of a black sports car in front of her numerous luxury cars like Range Rovers and Bentleys.
Sometimes stars use their otherworldly bank accounts for good. Case in point? Oprah Winfrey, whom The Hollywood Reporter revealed in July 2019 donated $22.5 million in company stock to her Oprah Winfrey Charitable Foundation, the organization that supports her Leadership Academy in South Africa.
