While I awaited the candy at CVS to go on sale the day after Valentine’s Day, the Champagne Papi Drake was out here ballin’ just because. And why shouldn’t he? After pretending he didn’t care about winning a Grammy last week he needed something cheap to ensure he stayed humble like the working class. So why not drop $400,000 on a phone case for a device he’ll toss away in about six months? Yes, that’s the mere definition of practicality.
A mere six days ago, 24-year-old Justin Bieber embarked on what will no doubt be a very expensive future divorce when he executed God’s divine plan and proposed to 21-year-old Hailey Baldwin after about a month of dating again. Apparently Justin’s baddecision-making skills worked overtime throughout this whole process, because TMZ says the ring he proposed with cost almost half a million dollars.
Every once in a while, Hollywood heavyweights have to lay their dicks on the table to show us all how broke AF we all are. When Brangelina was a thing, it was when they bought that entire vineyard in France (even though it appears Brad Pitt couldn’t pay to keep the lights on). Barbra Streisand sent us all a trip to peasanthood when she said she missed her old dog so much, she got it cloned. Twice.
Not to be outdone, Oprah was on The Late Late Show last night, and she said she’s just a normal girl who thinks a bath is an indulgence. Oh, not just any bath, you peon. Oprah has a bathtub that was hand-carved out of marble and onyx to fit to the shape of her body. Continue reading
Page Six says that Jay-Z spent Sunday night celebrating the birthday of his friend Juan “OG” Perez by hopping from bar to bar and picking up the tab. But because Jay-Z is a rich person, it shouldn’t surprise you that his version of boozing with his friends is a little more expensive than what the rest of us are used to.
Last week Busy Philipps admitted that last year she made most of her money from shilling shit on Instagram and not from her acting career. That doesn’t mean Busy doesn’t still try to act. Earlier this year, it was announced Busy would star in The Sackett Sisters, a comedy created by Tina Fey for NBC. Unfortunately, it may not get picked up.
Drake was only 14 when J.Lo came out, so this would be where I should forgive him for not understanding the message Jennifer Lopez was trying to convey in the song Love Don’t Cost a Thing. But since this thing between Drake and Jennifer Lopez probably isn’t love, then $100,000 on a necklace might actually be in line with the cost breakdown outlined in their relationship agreement.
E! News says that Drake walked into a Tiffany store last week and spent $100,000 on a platinum and diamond Tiffany Victoria necklace (probably this one). I guess this news is supposed to help prove that Drake is head-over-wheels in love with JLo. Regardless of the legitimacy of their relationship, I wouldn’t say he threw his money away on that necklace. He’ll have to check with his accountant, but I think he might be able to write that necklace off as a business expense if he lists it as a thank-you gift to a co-worker.
E! doesn’t say how Drake gave the necklace to Jennifer Lopez, which is weird, because you’d think at least one of their publicists would have made up a cute story to go along with it. Like maybe Drake walked JLo into a room with his hands over her eyes, and when he removed them, she was face to face with her new $100,000 necklace. And when Drake put the necklace on her, he cooed “Don’t be fooled by these rocks that you got. I still, I still love you a lot.” Or something like that.
