Yes, celebrities are human beings — but sometimes it seems like that's just about the only thing that the rest of us have in common with them. From dropping crazy money on airport style to gifting people cars and mattresses, there are millions of ways that stars are nothing like us. Let's take a look back at some of the most unrelatable moments of the year so far, starting with Martha Stewart's dogs. Here's a story that proves it's very good to be a celebrity dog. In fact, sometimes it might be better than being just a normal person. Case in point? Martha Stewart's French bulldogs are hand-fed "local, organic, sustainable turkey bacon" by Martha herself, according to the New York Post, whose source saw this very over-the-top act go down in the Hamptons this month after Martha special-ordered the pups' meal from a local restaurant.

Imagine giving someone a car! While it's not in the realm of possibility for most of us, Dwayne Johnson recently did just that for a fan. The Rock gifted one of his biggest fans, combat vet Staff Sgt. Marlene Rodriguez, a brand-new Ford Mustang! And if that wasn't enough, he also invited her and a guest to the world premiere of his latest movie, "Baywatch."
It's good to be Oprah! In a recent interview for the September issue of Vogue, Oprah Winfrey touched on her obsession with owning really fancy bathtubs. The mogul shared a story from her childhood about being forced to clean the dirty tub as a kid and making a vow to herself at a young age: "I was going to get myself a good tub." And that she did! In her Telluride, Colorado, home, she has a bathtub that's been molded and shaped to her body. She explained to the interviewer, "I major in bathtubs. I spend my time looking for the best possible bathtub a woman can buy." Queen Oprah is truly living the dream!
Most of us have, at one time or another, worn a piece of moderately expensive jewelry for a fancy night, but Nicole Kidman took it to a whole new level with her valuable jewels for the 2017 Oscars. Apparently, she was so worried about damaging her borrowed 119-carat Harry Winston ring that she was afraid to clap like a regular person during the telecast. The "Big Little Lies" actress confessed to feeling awkward about her makeshift applause — it was compared to a seal clap by some Twitter users — while on the "Kyle & Jackie O" radio show in Australia on March 9, 2017. That's sure not a typical issue the rest of us encounter when getting dolled up.
Miranda Lambert might be in her 30s, but she still requires a nanny bag! The country star told the New York Post that her assistant always makes sure she has alcohol on hand, sharing, "My assistant packs — I call it my nanny bag — she packs a bag of liquor for emergencies, for meltdowns and things like that." Must be nice, Miranda!
Kylie Jenner can't even drink alcohol legally, but according to mom Kris Jenner, her company, Kylie Cosmetics, earned $420 million in its first 18 months on the market. According to WWD, which got the scoop on the reality TV star's finances from her momager during an October 2017 interview, if the makeup company's growth trajectory continues, it's on track to become a billion-dollar business by 2022 — at which point Kylie would be just 25 years old. Anyone else suddenly feeling a little green?
Beyonce and Jay Z spare no expense when it comes to their daughter's wardrobe! Blue Ivy Carter didn't just wear any dress to the NBA All-Star Game on Feb. 19, 2017… she wore an $1,800 Gucci dress! And it's not even the first time Blue wore the designer that month: She donned a pink Gucci suit for the Grammys.
It's a celebrity's job to look good, so often people just assume they've had work done. So what happens when a star actually has remained au naturale and just really looks that good? Well, everyone accuses her of going under the knife anyway! This recently happened to Kate Beckinsale, who opened up to ELLE in early August about the accusations. "You can see I haven't done anything," she tells the interviewer while making plenty of facial movements to prove she's filler- and Botox-free. "I know that paralyzing one's face must be a bad idea but I'm accused of it constantly," Kate explained, insisting that her insanely youthful looks are actually, in fact, genetic.
Celebrity liquor brands are big business! George Clooney and Cindy Crawford's husband Rande Gerber's hugely successful tequila company, Casamigos, sold for a lot of money in June 2017 — $1 billion to be exact. The craziest part? The two buddies started the brand as a passion project, originally just collecting tequilas to drink with their friends.
How much do you make an hour? When you're Kim Kardashian West, that figure can be staggering. The star launched her own beauty line featuring a cream contouring and highlighting kit in June 2017, which earned her an estimated $14.4 million as it sold out in less than three hours.
Tisk, tisk! Just because you're a mega-superstar doesn't mean you can break all of the rules and get away with it. Actually, it often does. Here to serve up a perfect example is Hollywood power couple Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez, who were left unscathed by parking enforcement even after committing a big parking no-no while out in Beverly Hills on Sept. 11, 2017. The lovebirds parked in a disabled spot without a placard before heading into an appointment with designer-director Tom Ford. We guess when you're driving a custom Rolls Royce, which retails for $480,000, the thought of getting a $515 ticket is the least of your worries.
Bona fide superstar Britney Spears has been selling out her Las Vegas "Piece of Me" residency since 2013, but all that money isn't just going into her pockets. The star has also been raising money for the Nevada Childhood Cancer Foundation along the way and recently donated $1 million to the organization. The money will be used to open their Britney Spears Campus, a facility to help pediatric and adult cancer patients in the region.
In August, George Clooney and Amal Clooney put their money where their mouth is, donating $1 million to help combat hate groups in light of recent violent events steeped in racism. The couple put out a statement following their generous contribution, stating, "Amal and I wanted to add our voice (and financial assistance) to the ongoing fight for equality. There are no two sides to bigotry and hate. We are proud to support the Southern Poverty Law Center in its efforts to prevent violent extremism in the United States. What happened in Charlottesville, and what is happening in communities across our country, demands our collective engagement to stand up to hate."
For one of the best actresses in the world, it's not enough to break Hollywood records — she has to go and break her own! Meryl Streep shattered her own record for the most Oscar nominations earned by one performer when the 2017 Academy Award nominations were released. She netted nod No. 20 just this year!
Ever been so good-looking and so famous that coffee shops print your face in foam? Yeah, neither have we. But Carrera Cafe has started to put images of hottie Ryan Gosling atop their frothy cups of joe, and patrons are loving it. The Los Angeles java spot prints everything from the "Blade Runner 2049" actor's handsome smile to full-on "Hey Girl" memes — a phrase connected to the star that once went viral. In any case, we doubt anybody would pay $4 for a coffee with any of our faces on it.
When we think of school lunches, we imagine a cafeteria lady in a hair net plopping a scoop of sloppy joe onto a stale bun. But 4-year-old Prince George will have a much better memory: The new school he started attending on Sept. 7, Thomas's Battersea, boasts a gourmet menu fit for a prince — literally — with fresh soups of the day and mouth-watering options like Mediterranean couscous and quinoa and free-range chicken minced chili con carne. According to Hello Giggles, there's even a vast vegetarian selection with creative dishes like three-bean ratatouille. Great, now we're royally hungry.
Paying $40K for a baby shower? While most people would barely spend that on a car, if you're Tori Spelling and your mom, Candy Spelling, hosts your shower at the Hotel Bel-Air, that's no big deal. Candy recruited celebrity party planner Mindy Weiss to help her organize the fancy shindig, which only hosted 50 people. (Yep, that's about $800 a head.)
If you're ever given the opportunity to do a favor for Amy Schumer — take it! In April 2017, the funnywoman made an emergency pit stop to use the bathroom at a Chicago-area Mattress Firm while she was out for a jog. A simple "thank you" probably would've sufficed, but instead, Amy showed her gratitude to the employee who let her use the bathroom by buying her a $2,000 mattress. In other celebrity bathroom news…
Typically, your family and friends are the only ones who really care about your breakups. But when you're a Hollywood power couple like Anna Faris and Chris Pratt, it seems like the whole world is invested in the split! When the pair announced in early August that they were separating after eight years of marriage, Twitter had a bona fide meltdown, with fans of the stars lamenting the split and even making the hashtag #LoveIsDead trend on the social media site.
If you struggled to come up with an idea for the perfect Halloween costume this year, keep this in mind: Kit Harington once dressed up as himself — or at least as his "Game of Thrones" alter ego, Jon Snow — for a costume party. The actor explained how he ended up in the laziest costume ever during an interview with Heat magazine that went live in October 2017: "Recently I went to a 30th birthday party and the theme was 'bad taste,'" he said. "I was in Aberdeen, and I left it really late to get a costume. So I went to the one costume shop that was open … and the woman who worked there said, 'You know, you really look like the guy from 'Game of Thrones,' and I've got a 'Game of Thrones' outfit.'" So Kit ended up wearing a bad knock-off Jon Snow costume — not his actual wardrobe from the hit HBO series. If only we could all dress as ourselves on Halloween!
When you're rich and famous, not just any botox will do. Oh, no. Meghan Markle reportedly got a tip from her soon-to-be future sister-in-law, Duchess Kate, and learned that the royal was utilizing an organic botox instead of what most people are having injected into their faces. Among the elite, like Michelle Obama and Kim Kardashian West, the latest craze is Biotulin gel, which is applied topically.
Babies are expensive. But when it's a celebrity couple that's expecting, they often assume things will be free. When Blac Chyna and Rob Kardashian were putting together their nursery for daughter Dream, they reportedly asked companies for handouts. In return they offered… nothing. That's right, Rob and Chyna asked for $100K worth of goodies, but were turned down by companies right and left and reportedly ended up using his sister Kourtney Kardashian's old nursery furniture.
We know women in Hollywood often rely on extensions to get their long, voluminous locks — but the men too?! Matt Damon opened up about his need for extensions for his role in "The Great Wall," and let's just say he now knows what women go through for beauty. The actor confessed his man bun in the flick required 700 extensions and took 12 hours to create. "I have a whole new appreciation for my wife and daughter," he told Graham Norton.
Manicurist Elle painted both Blake Lively's and Jennifer Lopez's nails with raw 24-karat gold dust for the 2017 Met Gala. (Take a closer look here.) "It creates crazy shine — it looks like an actual piece of jewelry that becomes one on your nail," Elle told Us Weekly of the undoubtedly expensive manicures. Here's the problem: This "piece of jewelry" ends up on a cotton ball in the trashcan at the end of the night.
Victoria Beckham registered her darling 5-year-old daughter's name with the intellectual property authorities in April 2017. The former Spice Girl made sure "Harper Beckham" was trademarked in Britain and Europe in order to ensure the name is not used for marketing purposes by anyone other than her. If that sounds extreme, in the Beckham family, it's certainly not. Every member of the famous family has his or her name trademarked, including all of Harper's big brothers, Cruz Beckham, Romeo Beckham and Brooklyn Beckham.
Doing good deeds makes you feel great, but when you're a celebrity, you get the added benefit of making major news each time you perform one! Donnie Wahlberg left his second massively generous tip at a Waffle House restaurant in July, following a similar generous act in June. "My mom waited tables, and my dad tended bars — for years! So, when I walk into a #WaffleHouse, and the staff treats me like a king, you better believe I treat them like queens! Thanks to the team at @wafflehouseofficial Charlotte, NC! ❤️," Donnie captioned a pic of himself with employees and the $2,000 tip he left on his $82 bill.
What costs more than an expensive drug habit? Brad Pitt's alleged efforts to stay sober! In May 2017, the National Enquirer reported that the A-list actor has been spending $4,500 a day to stay sober with the help of a sober coach, an art therapist, a "sober chef" and dietician and more specialists. "Brad's sober chef has worked out a meal plan with him that is specifically designed for people who have quit boozing and drugs, and have a hard time eating full meals because of withdrawal and stress," an insider tattled to the tabloid. (By the way, if you had $4,500 to spend on food for the entire year, you'd still have $12 a day. Just saying!)
Four security guards reportedly shut down a multi-stall bathroom at New York City's Javits Center so that Jennifer Lopez could have complete privacy during a charity event in May 2017. "A huge line of ladies … were waiting for her to come out so they could go in," a witness told the New York Post. "People were thinking Hillary [Clinton] or another politician must be in there, but Alex Rodriguez, standing off to the side on his phone, waiting, gave it away. … Then J.Lo strode out with the guards in tow and the regular people were let in. It was insane!" Jennifer Lopez: Charitable? Yes. Considerate? Maybe not!
In June, "Flip or Flop" star Tarek El Moussa told E! News that in the wake of his scandalous split from co-star Christina El Moussa, he updated the name of his luxury boat — which is reportedly worth more than $1 million — from "Flip or Flop" to "Bad Decisions." Why? "Apparently I've made a couple," he quipped.
Most criminals who are jail-bound don't have the luxury of preparing for life behind bars like celebrities do. Take Abby Lee Miller, for instance, who got ready for her 366-day sentence for fraud by hiring a prison consultant for two months. The "Dance Moms" star reportedly paid a former law enforcement official to give her advice on how to survive inside the slammer before she surrendered to a California facility on July 12.
It really pays to be a washed-up star because you can still make money by appearing on "Celebrity Big Brother." Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt signed on for quite the payday to take part in the reality show overseas — earning themselves $700,000 for the season!
Most people dream of owning a vacation home, but when you're a star, you don't just have a run-of-the-mill place to get away. Mel Gibson recently listed his Costa Rica bungalow — and the price tag will shock you! The actor's three-building property, which comes with 11 bedrooms and more than two miles of coastland, is on the market for $29.75 million. What a steal!
Apparently, there are people out there shelling out up to $50K to look like Ivanka Trump. Page Six reports that there's been an influx of women wanting to get plastic surgery to mirror the president's daughter since the 2016 election. Dr. Norman Rowe told Page Six that he's done at least 50 Ivanka-inspired operations, which range from $30-40K for temporary fillers and Botox to $45-50K for a more permanent option with actual surgery. Cheek implants and rhinoplasty are typically done to achieve the presidential adviser's look of widened cheekbones with a narrower nose. We can't picture a soul willing to shell out that much cash to look like us, let alone actually go under the knife!
The Barbadian Ministry of Tourism announced in October 2017 that the town of Saint Michael in Barbados is planning to honor Rihanna by changing the name of the street on which her childhood home is located from Westbury New Road to Rihanna Drive. According to Nation News, a Barbadian news outlet, the name change will take place during a two-hour ceremony on Barbados' Independence Day, which is Nov. 30. Both the international superstar and the island nation's prime minister are expected to attend.
We consider it a splurge to get a birthday cake from a real bakery instead of the local grocery store, but not Beyonce. For her 36th b-day celebration on Sept. 4, Cake Life Bake Shop custom made her a massive black, yellow and gold cake modeled to look like a geode, which is a type of volcanic hollowed-out rock filled with sparkling crystals. "Happy Birthday, Beyonce," the Philadelphia shop wrote on Instagram. "We hope you enjoyed this custom geode cake at your party last night!! It was an honor to be a part of your big day." According to Page Six, these specific cakes start at $3,500 and only go up in price depending on size. Realistically, we would only spend $35 on a cake, and that would be if it was for a milestone birthday.
While most new moms are exhausted and lucky to get a couple hours of sleep, Janet Jackson's new mommy life is anything but normal. Janet was reportedly been waited on "hand and foot" after welcoming son Eissa on Jan. 3, 2017. When you consider that Janet's estimated worth is around $150 million and that her soon-to-be-ex-husband is a billionaire, it just seems par for the course.
In February 2017, Mariah Carey released a music video for her song "I Don't," and fans noted that it featured a very expensive prop. The video shows the singer throwing her $250,000 custom-made Valentino wedding dress into a fire pit. And yes, it's the quarter-of-a-million-dollar gown she was planning to wear at her canceled nuptials to Australian billionaire James Packer. Maybe she should have saved it in case she lands herself a new husband?
Most 3-year-olds have a cake at their birthday party and maybe some balloons. But when you're Simon Cowell's son Eric, no expense is spared! The "X Factor" judge reportedly spent $12,000 on his son's shindig, which was dinosaur-themed and held at London's Mandarin Oriental hotel.
Though most stars are beautiful and fit, Leonardo DiCaprio recently reminded us of a less realized benefit of superstardom for A-list men: You don't really have to work out if you don't want to! At a Fourth of July party, the star was heard bragging about his dad bod and how he isn't hitting the gym — and isn't bothered. Despite not having to put any effort into his appearance, the actor still has no problem with the ladies, having dated countless supermodels.
Owning a house in and of itself is a big dream for most people. But owning a piece of Hollywood history? Just par for the course if you're Taylor Swift! The star purchased a home in Beverly Hills back in 2015 that, in early 2017, authorities designated as a Local Historic Landmark. The $25 million mansion was originally built in 1934 by Hollywood honcho Samuel Goldwyn.
Most of us don't gain weight on purpose — those extra LBs just seem to sneak up on us over the years. But when you're a star, there are times you're actually asked to pack on the pounds for a role. That happened to Vanessa Hudgens in 2013 when she signed on for the movie "Gimme Shelter," which required her to weigh 20 pounds more. But taking that weight off? That's something most people can relate to! Except that Vanessa did it in a very Hollywood way, turning to the same popular class that Beyonce has been known to use — SoulCycle. Vanessa credits two classes a day at the expensive exercise studio with helping her lose the weight, as well as a diet high in good fats and low in carbs.
When normal folk sell their old stuff, they usually turn to Craigslist. But not Oprah Winfrey! The mogul recently sold a painting for more than most people make in a lifetime! Oprah's "Portrait of Adele Bloch-Bauer" by Gustav Klimt sold to a Chinese buyer for… wait for it… $150 million! Though that's chump change when compared to Oprah's $2.9 billion net worth.
John Mayer dropped big bucks on a birthday present for himself when he turned 40 on Oct. 16, 2017. The singer commissioned IF & Co. jewelry designer Ben Baller to create an 18k white gold chain pendant bearing the likeness of Jeff Bridges' "The Big Lebowski" alter ego, The Dude (see it here). According to TMZ, the pendant is covered with 41 carats of diamonds, took about two months to complete and is worth somewhere in the six-figure range.
Most people meet their significant others online these days, but if you're among the rich and famous, you're in a different dating pool. Take Mischa Barton, for example! The actress recently linked up with Australian model James Abercrombie — who also just happens to be the heir to a massive fortune — after meeting up with him at a party in Los Angeles. James' businessman father is worth a reported $574 million.
When it comes to having children, celebrities have the resources to raise them anywhere in the world. So when it came time for jet-setting couple George Clooney and Amal Clooney to decide where they'd settle down after welcoming their twins, Ella and Alexander, they had plenty of options. Their choice? England, where they're planning to live for the twin's infant and toddler years, according to E! News.
Following the devastating effects of Hurricane Harvey, a slew of celebrities banned together to help the people of Houston. Kevin Hart, who donated $50,000to relief efforts, took to Instagram to encourage others to do the same. Dwayne Johnson, DJ Khaled, Nicki Minaj, T.I. and Wendy Williams all pledged $25,000 in response, and Chris Brown even pulled out a cool $100,000 for the cause. But nothing compared to the Kardashians! At the start of September, matriarch Kris Jenner announced her contribution of $500,000, also on behalf of her oldest daughters — Kim Kardashian West, Khloe Kardashian and Kourtney Kardashian. The reality TV family are such megastars, that they're not even like other stars. But, hey, every donation counts in this case. It's just pretty spectacular the kind of money the Ks are easily able to spare. You get half a million, you get half a million!
The Weeknd took girlfriend Selena Gomez on a romantic tour around his hometown of Toronto on March 17, 2017, and the hot new celebrity power couple made us drool with envy over their grand dates. The "Starboy" singer rented out an entire movie theater screening room to watch "Get Out" all alone with his lady love. According to "etalk," he spoiled the songstress with cocktails, popcorn and four different types of candy. The duo ended their trip getting lost in a sea of jellyfish during a day at Ripley's Aquarium. If only all dates could be so magical…
Reality stars aren't typically known for receiving major paydays, but Todd Chrisley seems to be changing that. The "Chrisley Knows Best" star, whose show is on USA, is reportedly in talks with a major production company to sign a $75 million deal. Yep, the patriarch of the Chrisley family might be making bank well beyond what his reality TV peers rake in thanks to several shows he's pitching. And the amount he receives could exceed that figure, according to Us Weekly, since there could also be "backend participation" that nets him even more money.
Most regular old coach travelers often wear sweat pants to be comfortable during a long flight. But for celebs on the go, it seems to be a different story. Chrissy Teigen traded in her joggers for a designer ensemble estimated to cost $13,500 for a trip out of LAX Airport on March 16, 2017. Her Gucci cardigan and ankle pants alone retail for $7,100, not to mention her Céline bag, which is worth around $4,500. We sure hope she didn't get any airplane-food stains on that pricey look.
A bachelorette party in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, is not out of the ordinary even for us regular folk, but how many of us could afford a $7,129-a-night getaway for all of the girls? That's how much the party digs "Dancing with the Stars" judge Julianne Hough rented for her pre-wedding festivities over the first weekend of March 2017 cost, according to People. Plus celebrity pals like Nina Dobrev, Cindy Crawford and Kris Jenner joined in on the fun. A star-studded guest list, plus a lavish estate? Nope, nothing like us.
The record-breaking price tag on the Brooklyn Heights penthouse that Matt Damon allegedly has his eye on is way out of our league. According to the Wall Street Journal, the six-bedroom apartment is on the market for $16,645,000, and, if sold, would break a record for highest residential sale ever in the area. The sprawling space is actually a combo of more than one unit in the building and has luxe finishes like Austrian white oak floors. It sounds like Matt, wife Luciana and their four daughters would be quite happy there, while the rest of us will just keep thinking about downsizing — which ironically happens to be the title of Matt's latest flick.
According to the Library of Congress, Robert Cornelius took the first-known portrait of a person back in 1839. The photo was a self-portrait… A selfie, if you will. Just don't tell Paris Hilton that! The multihyphenate told W magazine in April 2017 that she invented the selfie: "If a beeper had a camera, I would have taken a selfie with it," she said. "I think I have a selfie from when I was a little kid, like on a disposable camera." But that wasn't the only shocker from the profile of our all-time favorite socialite. The biggest was this revelation from the writer: "In the present day, Hilton has a total of five iPhones." Hey, you gotta save all those selfies somewhere, right?
There's always bound to be at least a little bit of office drama no matter where you work, but Steve Harvey really made things awkward between himself and his co-workers in 2016 when he sent a memo banning them from interacting with him. "There will be no meetings in my dressing room," he wrote in the memo, which leaked in May 2017. "No stopping by or popping in. … Do not open my dressing room door. If you open my door, expect to be removed. … Do not approach me while I'm in the makeup chair unless I ask to speak with you directly. … I want all the ambushing to stop now. … I promise you I will not entertain you in the hallway, and do not attempt to walk with me." Could you imagine your boss saying something like that to you? Yikes! No wonder he skipped the staff wrap party.
On May 10, 2017, Howard Stern took a personal day from work. And based on fans' reactions, it may have been the first time EVER that the SiriusXM radio host has unexpectedly taken a day off since his career took off in the '80s! Several superfans took to Twitter to express their surprise and concerns that something could be seriously wrong with him and echoed their belief that it was, in fact, the only time he'd missed a live show. A few days later, the shock jock explained that he'd just been suffering from the flu. We're glad we don't have to worry about breaking the Internet every time we have a bad cough!
Shockingly enough, some stars are not even like other stars! Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez set the bar even higher than The Weeknd and Selena Gomez when it comes to outlandish date nights. On March 10, 2017, the former pro baseball player whisked the "All I Have" singer away on a private jet to the Bahamas, where he escorted her to an exclusive private home via private boat. Page Six reported that the Bakers Bay Golf & Ocean Club is spread out over seven miles of lush land in the Abaco Islands. So much for dinner and a movie.
Oprah Winfrey is worth billions, but don't expect to see her at the bank. The media mogul revealed in a video for Ellen DeGeneres' YouTube channel that she recently went to the bank for the first time in almost three decades. "I went to the bank recently because I hadn't been to the bank since 1988," she said in a video that went live on Oct. 10, 2017. When Ellen asked why she was there, Oprah deadpanned, "To deposit a million dollars." Explained the multi-hyphenate: "I just wanted to go there just to do it. I stood in line, just to do it. … It felt fantastic." She then clarified that she didn't actually deposit $1 million. "It was $2 million," said O. Must be nice!
We prefer to buy our medications from a good old-fashioned drug store, but Hollywood folks always seem drawn to bizarre alternative cures for basic ailments. Take Gerard Butler, for example. The Scottish star revealed during an appearance on the British talk show "Lorraine" in October 2017 that to combat the swelling and pain he experienced while shooting the box-office flop "Geostorm," he actually paid someone to inject him with bee venom "because apparently it has many anti-inflammatory compounds." But the trick didn't work for Gerard, who landed in the hospital as a result. Four days later, he gave it another go and ended up in the hospital yet again. Next time, try an aspirin, Ger.
Even the fittest of us would probably think twice about being photographed in our underwear for all the world to see. But not Lauren Hutton. At 73, the supermodel stripped down for a Calvin Klein underwear campaign that hit the Internet in April 2017. And homegirl looks GOOD. That's what we call one sexy septuagenarian!
If you're anything like us, your airplane travel uniform consists of yoga pants, a T-shirt, a backpack and comfortable footwear. When Jessica Simpson took to the friendly skies in April 2017, her airplane travel uniform also included a T-shirt. But hers cost a whopping $700. She accessorized with a $671 blazer, a $239 pair of jeans, a $2,000 pair of Dolce & Gabbana shades, a $2,000 Miu Miu cross-body bag, a $13,000 Hermès Birkin bag and a $3,350 Gucci suitcase. That's $22,000 in clothes and accessories, y'all. And who knows what she had packed away in all those bags!
Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin have finally unloaded their New York City loft — and the price tag was more than most of us will make in a lifetime! The former couple's home recently sold for $10.7 million, but that was in fact not even close to what the stars initially listed it for back in 2010. The apartment ended up going for $4 million less than the original asking price.
Dancing for a dollar? How about $1,000? Jamie Foxx was recently at a club in Los Angeles and announced an impromptu dancing contest. The prize? $1,000 out of his own pocket! A partygoer told the New York Post that Jamie truly did hand out the cash after crowning two winners, gifting them each with $500.
Getting asked to another school's prom was pretty impressive back in high school, but the stars receive all sorts of prom invitations. Take Kylie Jenner for example, who made one high school student's dream come true by showing up at his prom in Sacramento, California. The reality star documented the big night for "Keeping Up With the Kardashians," which showed her attending the dance with high schooler Albert Ochoa.
What's the cost of beauty? Somewhere around $1K per 4.06 ounces if you're Erin Heatherton. That's how much a pot of Adore's Golden Touch Magnetic Mask — which the model calls her "obsession" — will set you back. The anti-aging formula includes 24-karat gold sprinkles. The ability to turn back time with pure gold: It's not even a metaphor anymore!
Another reason stars are nothing like us? They pursue their passions… no matter how strange! Former blink-182 guitarist Tom DeLonge always believed in aliens, but since leaving the band, he's become obsessed with the study of extraterrestrial life. He cites seeing alien spacecrafts himself as inspiring him, and admits he believes there are other cosmic life forms around. He's even written a book about it, "Sekret Machines: Gods."
Celebrities are no strangers to inventing fragrances, but Paris Hilton has gone one step further. The star, who already has a fleet of perfumes (22 to be exact) under her belt, announced that her latest scent — Rosé Rush — is meant to smell like rosé wine. Her 23rd scent will be retailing for the bargain price of $60.
Nick Cannon is looking to unload an old pair of shoes, but they're not just any shoes! The star owns a pair of $2 million custom Tom Ford loafers that are reportedly the most expensive shoes in the world, and he's ready to part ways with them — for a good cause!
