The Most Extravagant And Outlandish Items Ever Bought By Celebrities
We all splurge on ourselves from time to time, and as long as it doesn't break our banks, it can have a positive effect on our emotional well-beings. We can even spend our hard-earned dough on items others might consider odd, because, well, it's our money and we can do what we want with it!
And while Parks and Recreation taught us to "treat yo'self," some of these celebrities may have taken that saying a little too close to heart. They can surely afford a luxury item or two, but some of these stars seemed so concerned with whether they could buy something, they forgot to consider whether or not they should...
1. Move over Ghostbusters, we can call Lady Gaga now. Gaga believes firmly in paranormal activity and is deadly afraid of ghosts, particularly one simply named Ryan, so she drags her ghost-detecting machine (a $47,000 Electro Magnetic Field detector) on the road with her to stay safe at all times.
2. Contrary to popular belief, Flavor Flav didn't actually steal or buy his life-size statue of O.J. Simpson; it was gifted to him by radio host Mancow Muller (who actually got a fairly good deal on it). Still, the piece is worth a lot of money these days; Flav is trying to sell it for at least 6 figures.
3. Have you ever dropped your smartphone and dreaded shelling out $100 to get the screen replaced? You probably won't be able to relate to Victoria Beckham, whose gold-plated iPhone set her back $33,000. Now imagine dropping THAT.
4. Despite the Christian meaning behind her stage name, Madonna's spirituality is focused more towards the wisdom of Kabbalah these days. She insists on drinking only Kabbalah-blessed water, which sells for $5 per bottle. The Vogue-singer must be pretty thirsty because she orders $17,000 worth of the holy water every month.
