Celebrity's spending proves they're just like us... If we had millions to waste.

Victoria Beckham

Back when Victoria was the lead singer in Spice Girls she was seen as flashy and flamboyant and there were good reasons for that. At one point she bought a gold Stuart Hughes pay-as-you-go phone. She never revealed the price of the luxury item so as not to provoke the ire of her fans.

Lady Gaga

Lady Gaga is the walking, talking definition of weird and that’s totally by design. At one point, Mother Monster got it into her head that evil spirits were haunting her house, so she went and bought a ghost detector for $50,000. She says she now feels safe.

Steven Spielberg

Steven Spielberg really liked the props used in Citizen Kane. He specifically had his heart set on the Rosebud sled, which he bought for $60,000. Steven explains that for him the sled is a symbol of quality cinema.

Mike Tyson

Mike wanted a pet for a long time and eventually when he got rich and famous, he bought two Bengal tigers for $150,000, He says he trains them regularly.

Tom Cruise

It could be down to scientology or maybe, Tom’s just a natural born control freak but whatever the reason might be, when his wife Katie Holmes got pregnant, Tom went and bought a sonogram machine for $200,000 so doctors could come to his home to check on the foetus instead of Tom taking his wife to the hospital.

Nicolas Cage

Nicolas Cage went above and beyond on the extravagance count on our list as what he bought was an actual dinosaur skeleton that looks almost exactly the same as the one used in Night at the Museum.

Miley Cyrus

After Miley ended her contract with Disney and ditched her innocent teenager image to go a-twerking, her shopping patterns changed drastically too. At one point, Miley spent $24,000 on fake hair because she was feeling super insecure about her own hair after getting an especially short haircut.
