No one ever said being rich and famous was cheap. This week alone we’ve seen more than a few exorbitantly expensive items from celebrities. Some price tags went to helping those in need, while others just went to looking fly. Check out who spent how much on what and try not think about your own bank account.
Kurt Cobain’s Cardigan: $137,500
One of the grunge movements most famous moments is undoubtedly Nirvana’s 1993 Unplugged performance on MTV. Filmed shortly before lead singer Kurt Cobain’s death, the album debuted at number one on Billboard and went on to win a Grammy for Best Alternative Music Album. Anyone familiar with the famous special will quickly recognize the grey cardigan worn by Cobain for the performance. During a recent auction, the cardigan sold for a whopping $137,500. We’re going to guess that Cobain, who was a fan of second-hand stores, paid considerably less.
Kanye West’s Haircuts: $500
We’re going to take this one with a big ol’ grain of salt. According to Ronald Fenty, dad to superstar Rihanna, Kanye West spends $500 per day on haircuts. Fenty said he learned this fact while Rihanna and West were on tour together in 2010. In case you’re wondering, that comes to a grand total of $182,500 per year. If this rumour is true, the price of new Yeezy shoes finally makes sense. Those barber bills don’t pay themselves!
Miley Cyrus’ Licked Piano: $50,000
Thankfully, Miley is on today’s list for a great reason. To support her Happy Hippie Foundation and raise money for the welfare of LGBTQ youth, Miley auctioned off a piano licked by the famous singer for a whopping $50,000. Cyrus really needs to start licking more stuff. It’s for a good cause!
Drake’s Sneakers: $5,000
You don’t get the name Champagne Papi by rocking Crocs. The Toronto native was recently courtside at a NBA game when he debuted his brand new Air Jordan V Retro “Tokyo 23”, which cost $5,000. Good news for those with smaller feet, with size 8’s and below priced at a reasonable $4,500.
Victoria’s Secret Bra: $2,000,000
This year’s ‘Fantasy Bra’ from Victoria’s Secret has been revealed and will be modeled by VS angel Lily Aldridge. The bra is priced at a whopping $2 million thanks to 18 karat gold and 6,500 gems. So, hand-wash only?
