Stars are just like the rest of us! Are they, however, really trustworthy? Sure, they feed, sleep, and fall in and out of love in the same way as the rest of us do. And, by all means – Tom Cruise aside – we’re all getting older in the same way. But just because Britney Spears buys her own Grande latte once in a while, Ben Affleck blends in with the crowd at a Red Sox game, and Taylor Swift attends boutique fitness classes doesn’t mean they’re all that different from the rest of us.
Have you ever been in a bidding war for any Mongolian dinosaur bones with Nicolas Cage and Leonardo DiCaprio? Or maybe you’ve always wanted to wear your lover’s blood in a vial around your neck as a symbol of your love? What if you spent $1,168,000 on your hair alone each year? Continue reading to learn all of the eccentric and downright zany ways that celebrities set themselves apart from the rest of us.
She Believes In The Existence Of Leprechauns
In an interview with Esquire, Megan Fox said, “I believe in all of these Irish myths, including leprechauns.” “Not the leprechauns from Lucky Charms, nor the pot of gold. Is there, however, anything there in common sense? This knowledge, I believe, came from somewhere other than people’s imaginations.”
He Attempted (But Was Unsuccessful) To Capture The Loch Ness Monster
You can’t blame a man for attempting, can you? You may be able to do so, to some extent. Charlie Sheen was certain that with just a leg of lamb and a wide hook, he could eventually capture the elusive Scottish legend. “Something happened,” he said on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno. “There was a wild event at the top of the water,” says the narrator. Despite the fact that it did not result in a capture, Sheen continues to believe in the beast. “What’s to stop you? It’s got to be there if people have been talking about it for, like, 200 years, right?”
She Has Poltergeist-detection Electromagnetic Field Meter That Can Track Ghosts
Some ghosts are terrifying to Lady Gaga. She’s particularly concerned about a ghost called Ryan who she believes is haunting her. So she spent a whopping $50,000 on a poltergeist-detection electromagnetic field meter.
He Was Born In Nairobi But Did Not Grow Up There
Edi Gathegi was born in Kenya, but his family moved very quickly. They chose to leave their home and relocate their family to California, where they established roots.

The Illuminati Is Attempting To Assassinate Them
Randy Quaid, who you might know from films such as Independence Day and National Lampoon’s Vacation, has reason to believe that “star whackers” working for the Illuminati have been murdering celebrities such as Heath Ledger and David Carradine, and that he is next on their hit list. Quaid once said, “They track us, they tail us, they tag our mobile phone, they hack our machine.” What is it that they want him to die for? He explained, “in order to reclaim possession of my royalties.”
She Recruits People To Take Her Coffee Out Of The Cardboard Sleeve
Kim Kardashian once revealed on her website, as spotted by StyleCaster, that she “hates the sleeve on a Starbucks cup.” “Because the sound makes me cough, I leave the room and ask someone to take it off for me. For me, it’s like hammering nails into a chalkboard. Cardboard irritates me.”
They Compete For Dinosaur Skulls In Bidding Wars
Nicolas Cage or Leonardo DiCaprio: who likes the Mongolian dinosaur skull more? According to Vanity Fair, it was Cage who beat out the Revenant star in a bidding war for the right to pay $276,000 for the world’s most expensive paperweight. Leo, you’ve got it!
She Feeds Her Children As If They Were Birds
Clueless actress Alicia Silverstone shared a video of how she feeds her baby, Bear, on her health food website TheKindLife.com. “From my mouth to his,” she wrote, “I fed Bear the mochi and a tiny bit of vegetables from the soup.” “It’s both his and mine,” says the author.
To be honest, some have suggested that pre-chewing food for an infant has health benefits, such as improving a baby’s immune system, and that it is common practice in many non-Western cultures.

They Stock Entire Rooms With Candy For Their Children
We’re not talking about a traditional playroom where children can store their toys and games. We’re talking about a space dedicated solely to sweets. That’s just what Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon designed for their twins: a room filled with every kind of candy imaginable, from giant lollipops to their own cotton candy creator.
She Has A Fly Named After Her
Beyoncé now has an insect named after her because the Grammys weren’t enough for her. It all started in 2012, when researchers in Northern Queensland, Australia, discovered a new horse fly species. As a result, they called it “Scaptia beyonceae,” after the golden hairs on the fly’s abdomen. The uncommon horse fly has also been dubbed the “all-time diva of flies” by researchers.
He Rents The Whole Movie Theater
“Often you have to rent the whole movie theater out for your fam and babies to scream and interrupt the movie in peace #nowthatsludicrous,” rapper/actor Ludacris revealed in a 2016 Instagram post.

Their Bodies Have Been Possessed By The Spirits Of The Dead
Kesha appears to have had an encounter with a phantom in an interview with Conan O’Brien. The nameless spirit started to caress her, and the two had a “romantic” time together. The singer isn’t the only one who claims to have had a romantic experience with a ghost from another dimension.
When explaining her haunted body to Jimmy Kimmel on Jimmy Kimmel Tonight in 2013, pop singer Kesha said she was “really real.” “There’s a problem,” she clarified. “I called my hypnotherapist after being told I had dead people inside of me. She then proceeded to tell me that she needed to exorcise my body. After that, I got a ghost meter to read it, which simply beeped at my [privates].”
Being Involved With The Kardashians

They Exchange Necklaces Containing Each Other’s Blood
There were reports about Angelina Jolie and Billy Bob Thornton’s vampiric tendencies while they were both together. Jolie “thought it would be fun and romantic if we took a little razorblade and cut our fingertips, smeared a little blood on these lockets and you wear it around your neck like you wear your son or daughter’s baby hair in one,” Thornton recently reported.
Her Canine Companions Live In Miniature Mansions
Paris Hilton, a popular Chihuahua lover, built her dogs a 300-square-foot “doggy palace” in her backyard. She furnished it with luxury chairs, pink-colored walls, and a chandelier, in addition to air conditioning and heating. In addition, the two-story dog house has a porch and an enclosed yard for when the dogs want to go outside. She wrote of her dogs’ den, “Loves it.”
A member of the social elite Paris Hilton believes her dog can sleep in comfort, so she spent $325,000 on a two-story, 300-square-foot villa in 2009, according to Curbed. There’s a balcony, a black crystal chandelier, and designer furniture. Yes, there is a balcony. If they want to do their all-barking version of Evita’s “Don’t Cry For Me Argentina,” they can use this.
He Has A Fire Department Of His Own
George Lucas has his own fire truck and 14 full-time firefighters working for him. But, hey, you made Star Wars, so we think you’re free to buy whatever you want.
He Purchases Plane Tickets For His Favorite Hat
When Bono, the lead singer of U2, and an activist, arrived in Italy for a charity concert in 2003 and realized he had forgotten his favorite hat, a black trilby, back in London, he did what any rational person would do. He performed without his hat during the performance. I’m joking, of course. He paid $1,200 for the hat to be flown to him on a first-class British Airways flight, according to a profile in The Telegraph. Since Bono’s hat clearly needs more legroom than yours.
He Believes That An Octopus And Two Cobras Will Make Excellent Pets
Is there anything else we might say to make this sound even more absurd? Nicolas Cage did, in fact, spend $150,000 on a pet octopus, according to CNBC. He also had two albino King Cobra snakes as pets, according to reports. He also purchased an antidote, as King Cobras are a particularly venomous species of snake, and he didn’t want to die right away if he was bitten. He ultimately donated them to a zoo.
Their Body Parts Are Covered By Insurance
Both of Rihanna’s legs are allegedly insured for $1 million each. But Julia Roberts’ smile, which is officially insured for $30 million, is nothing compared to that. Also, Dolly Parton’s breasts are worth $600,000, while Kylie Minogue’s ass is worth $5 million.
He Eats According To How He Smell On The Inside

She Invests A Significant Amount Of Money In Humidifiers
A simple humidifier will set you back about $20. Celine Dion, on the other hand, insisted on a $2 million version. That’s a difference of $1,999,980. Sure, she bought it while on a three-year residency in Las Vegas, because she wanted something to shield her vocal cords from the dry desert air. However, there’s no reason why a product that adds moisture to the air should be more expensive than a Manhattan apartment.
She Is Acquiring Whole Cities
Why buy a single house when you can have the entire town? That was Kim Basinger’s rationale in 1989, when she spent $20 million cash to purchase Braselton, Georgia, a 2,000-acre town with a population of about 7,500 people, according to the New York Times. Her initial plan was to transform it into a tourist attraction, complete with film studios and a film festival. However, she sold it for $1 million just five years later.

She Claims That Her Deceased Relatives Pay Her Visits And Distribute Coins
“My grandfather leaves quarters,” Oscar winner Emma Stone once told David Letterman, despite the fact that her grandfather had been dead for a long time. “He is the one!

It’s him, though, you boys, it’s him!” Emma, we’ll just take your word for it.
She assumes she has the ability to manipulate the passage of time

They Are Able To Purchase Their Own Sonogram Machines
Sure, they have sonogram machines in their hospitals, and they’re more than happy to let you see your boy. For Tom Cruise, though, it wasn’t enough. He spent $200,000 on a sonogram machine when his (then-fiancée) Katie Holmes was pregnant so he could see Suri in the womb every day. You know how kids are: if you don’t keep an eye on them all the time, they’ll run away!
They adore their soul mates because they were kidnapped by aliens
How did Fran Drescher, star of The Nanny, realize that her beau Peter Marc Jacobson was “The One?” They both had scars from being kidnapped by aliens and implanted with electronic tracking chips, so they were clearly scared. In an interview, she said, “I believe that we were programmed to meet.” “It’s exactly the same scar in the exact same place.”
She Spends Millions Of Dollars For Her Hair

She Believes That Her Imagination Can Be Taken In A Sexual Manner
Lady Gaga, you’re a force to be reckoned with. In a Vanity Fair cover story, she admitted, “I’m rather celibate now.” “I have this strange belief that if I sleep with someone, they will take away my creativity.”
They Formed Their Own Band, Specializing In Pizza-themed Songs
It’s difficult to be a rock-star aspirant performer. “Hey, isn’t that the kid from Home Alone?” people would ask. Macaulay Culkin only wanted to be in a band without being judged. Alternatively, “Why are they just singing pizza-related Velvet Underground parodies? This is strange.”
“I Need That,” They Think When They See A Taxidermied Donkey

He Is In Charge Of Diamond Mining
Like global R&B phenomenon Akon, you’ve come across some extra cash and want to put it to good use. Why not establish a diamond mining operation in South Africa?

Hip-hop Is Allegedly Ruled By A “Gay Mafia,” According To Him
“To be honest with you, the hip-hop industry is most definitely owned by gay,” Fat Joe once said. “They’re gay-owned.” If you’re not sure why he’s using this phrase,”I happen to believe there’s a gay mafia in hip-hop,” he said, using the noun “gay.” Rappers, however, are not included. The people who give you awards at award shows, the editorial presidents of magazines, the program directors of radio stations, and the people who give you awards at award shows. My man, we’re dealing with a gay mafia.”

He Can Only Compose If He Is Blindfolded
Did you type your most recent email without looking at it?

They Used To Believe That They Could Survive Entirely Off Of Sunlight
During our time in college, we’ve all done some insane stuff.

Then you weren’t friends with Michelle Pfeiffer, who grew up in a cult that “believed that people in their highest state were breatharian,” according to her. To put it another way, they didn’t need food or water to live; all they needed was air and the sun’s healing rays.
He Enjoys Flowers, But Just A Little To Much
Elton John disclosed in a court case against his former boss that he spent £293,000 (approximately $395,400 in US dollars) on flowers in just two years. He said, “I enjoy flowers.” “I don’t have someone to leave my money to because I’m a single man who enjoys spending money. It’s my money, so I’ll spend it however I want.” While this is understandable, there are still a lot of flowers. As if there were a plethora of flowers. If you went to John’s place, there’s a fair chance you’d find yourself in a room overflowing with nothing but petals.
Rob Lowe spoke about his “incredible experience” with a giant, hairy cryptid known as Bigfoot while promoting his new show, The Lowe Files, in which he and his son investigate unsolved mysteries.

When asked about the reports on a radio show, Soulja just said that he was “G5 status,” which sounds like he was confirming it. However, it seems that he might have been…. What’s the word?… I’m not being completely honest. The “elaborate rumors” are “not real,” according to Soulja’s publicist in a tweet. Hopefully, someone told Soulja.
Kacey Musgraves, a Grammy-winning country singer, freely admits to having a drinking problem “A fear of spiders that is completely irrational. “But there’s something else that makes her nervous. “Alien abductions” is a term used to describe the phenomenon of alien abductions
I’m A God
Kanye West didn’t name his album Yeezus just to be funny. And the song “I Am A God” was taken to its logical conclusion. In an interview, he explained, ” “Because I am a god, I composed that album. There isn’t anything else to say, in my opinion. I’m not going to defend [it] from here. Man, [this] is rock ‘n’ roll. It’s rap music that’s being played here.
