It’s no secret that celebrities get compensated pretty handsomely for what they do. Yes, they work hard, often working long hours on set or travelling around the world on a whirlwind tour. However, all that hard work comes with a sky-high salary, which means they can easily spend a bit extra on things that make their lives easier, like personal trainers, personal chefs, assistants and more. And many celebrities live lives that aren’t too crazy – sure, they’ll splurge on a nice house because they have the money to do so, and on things like high quality clothing and security, but many celebrities don’t go too crazy with the spending.
And then, there are the exceptions. The celebrities who don’t blink twice at dropping hundreds of thousands of dollars on a whim, or spending way, way more on small items than anyone would ever dream of spending. After all, for these celebrities, hundreds of thousands of dollars is just a drop in the bucket of their multi-million dollar net worth – why even bother keeping track?
It can be strangely satisfying to see what types of things celebrities spend on, and just how much of their millions they’re willing to give up for things that man of us would consider unnecessary luxuries.
Here are 15 celebrities whose spending habits will make you sick (and maybe a little bit jealous, tbh.)
15. Lady Gaga
In the pop world, Lady Gaga is an absolute force to be reckoned with. Since she first stepped onto the scene, she’s been busting out chart-topping hit after chart-topping hit while constantly reinventing herself and switching up her look. It takes a lot of work to perform the way she does – but all her profits aren’t going to buying meat dresses and crazy heels. Gaga’s been willing to splurge on things that kind of leave us scratching our heads. For example, she allegedly spent over $60,000 dollars in order to buy 27 koi fish for a pond in her home. The fish were imported straight from Japan, but still – that’s over $2,000 per fish! Hopefully they were exactly what she wanted, with those prices. She’s also dropped a cool $50,000 on a ghost kit – well, high tech Electromagnetic Field meters, to be more specific. Apparently, Gaga wants to be able to detect any ghosts that might be around her. Spooky!
