Lady Gaga is infamous for bizarre things that cost an arm and a leg. A source close to the singer shared with reporters: “She believes in paranormal activity and won’t take any risks when she is on the road. It’s important to her to be safe from spirits.” It was later discovered that Gaga is terrified of ghosts and has reportedly had a team of professional paranormal investigators investigate every hotel and tour site she has performed at and stayed in.
The "Poker Face" singer reportedly spent $50,000 on an Electro-Magnetic Field Reader, which is intended expressly to keep ghosts and other paranormal entities away while she performs on tour. The diva believes she is the reincarnated spirit of her deceased aunt.

Nicholas Cage has made some interesting financial decisions over the years, like inviting alligators into his bed, ordering poisonous snakes to calm him down (sarcastically), and even acquiring stolen Mongolian dinosaur skulls by defeating Leonardo DiCaprio in a bidding battle.
The “Ghost Rider” actor once disclosed one of the most outrageous purchases ever made in a 2014 interview with the Daily Mail. “I once lived in the most haunted house in America,” he said. “The LaLaurie Mansion in New Orleans used to belong to Madame LaLaurie, a well-known 19th-century socialite and serial killer. I bought it in 2007, figuring it would be a good place in which to write the great American horror novel. I didn’t get too far with the novel.”

Kelly Rowland once spent a staggering $5,200 on the Swarovski-Crystal-Studded Baby Bathtub to offer her bandmate Beyoncé. She shared: “I have no idea what I’m going to buy Beyoncé at the baby shower because Jay is going to buy that little girl every single thing possible”, she continued “She won’t be spoiled but she will be very well looked after.”.
This is a very unique bathtub crafted by California-based interior designer Lori Gardner. It has 44,928 imported crystals that Gardner reportedly hand-applied over more than two months.

#4 Celine Dion Spent $2 Million on a Humidifier

Instead of a humidifier that costs only $20.00 on Amazon, Celine Dion has one that costs a whopping $2 million. In order to "preserve her singing voice in the harsh desert climate", she had the hotel install the pricey humidifier during a three-year residency at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas beginning in 2002. Throughout each of her appearances, the misting device was suspended above the stage.
The singer of "My Heart Will Go On" is renowned for her extravagance as well. Once, she assembled a $4 million squad that included an Olympic trainer, a yoga instructor, and four bodyguards. I mentioned that this occurred back in 1999, did I not?

At 17 years old, Justin Bieber gave in to his adolescent fantasies and transformed his Cadillac CTS-V into... a Batmobile. The vehicle was altered to Justin Bieber's specifications by West Coast Customs founder Ryan Friedlinghaus, who gave it a black-on-black matte paint job with a Batman logo in place of the original Cadillac badge, "suicide" doors, and high-intensity discharge (HID) headlamps. The side panels also included a "JB" branding.
But soon after the 'Baby' singer started driving, he was stopped for cutting off a Highway Patrol officer and given a warning. Batmobile? No, I just know the Bat-lilac.

#6 Bono Spent $1,500 on Plane Ticket Just for His Hat

In 2003, just before taking the stage at a Luciano Pavarotti charity concert in Italy, U2 frontman and megastar Bono realized he had left his trilby hat at home. He made arrangements to have the hat delivered before his performance, spending a stunning $1,500 to have it flown to him from his home in London, rather than performing without it.
The hat was transported by taxi to the southern London airport of Gatwick, where it was placed in the cockpit of a British Airways flight under the watchful eyes of the pilots to prevent it from being harmed by the passengers. A second cab ride later, the hat was back with Bono a few hours before the show began, and it apparently arrived in great condition.

#7 Brad Pitt Spent a Year Searching for Buried Treasure

Another star who spends both time and money on questionable things. The World War Z actor stated in an interview with GQ that he once received information suggesting that treasure from the Crusades was hidden someplace on his $60 million French estate. Well, it’s $60 MILLION!
Pitt then dug mini pits. He admitted, "I got obsessed," and added that he really purchased equipment for the hunt. “Like for a year, this was all I could think about, just the excitement of it all.” However, it was all a lie. It turned out the man who told him about the gold was only trying to get Pitt to invest in a radar company. The actor then went on to admit that it was “pretty foolish in the end.”

Fast and Furious actor Tyrese Gibson said that he had given his eight-year-old daughter Shayla her very own island for Christmas in an interview with ET back in 2015.

Oprah Winfrey takes her hobby of taking baths very seriously. She once told Vogue “I major in bathtubs. I spend my time looking for the best possible bathtub a woman can buy,” Besides, she once shared with Harper’s Bazaar: “I love creating bathing experiences—bath gels, bubbles, crystals, salts, lavender milk,” she added “I go prune. I go waaaay prune. I’ve gone to sleep.”
But Winfrey didn't fully expose how much of a bath expert she is until she made an appearance on The Late Late Show in 2018. Concerning what Winfrey’s bathtub looks like, host James Corden first commented “In my head, Oprah’s bath is like a Roman bath that only you go in yourself, and there are just general people around.”, then Winfrey replied, “I do have a hand-carved tub… [carved] out of marble and onyx.”

The majority of people would be happy to own the most recent iPhone model, but in 2011, Victoria Beckham's $35,998 gold-plated iPhone 4 represented a whole new level of extravagance. Stuart Hughes created the handcrafted phone, which had 150 grams of 24-karat gold. What's best? The former Spice Girl was once photographed by paparazzi in an airport, where her golden phone was flashing a wallpaper of a topless David Beckham.
