Someone Needs To Hide Their Black Cards! 15 Of The Most Ridiculous Things Celebrities Have Bought

December 19, 2012 ‐ By Meghan Williams

Many of us know how it feels to waste money on something we probably didn’t need – a pair of shoes that end up hurting our feet, a purse that looks stupid once we get it home… But for celebrities, frivolous spending seems almost criminal given the amounts of money they drop on unbelievably ridiculous things. These fifteen big spenders have purchased everything from white Bengal tigers to gold leggings, and at prices you wouldn’t believe.

Chad Johnson – $100,000 “Super Truck”

For his 32nd birthday, Chad Johnson made the questionable decision to purchase, what he called, a “super truck.” What this meant, I had no idea – until I saw the photos. Chad’s “super truck” is essentially a big rig minus the trailer but with all of the same obnoxious largeness. The monstrosity was custom built over a period of six months which makes sense when you consider its many unnecessary features: pick up bed, roll bar, air horn, Ochocinco branding. Oh, and so you know, Chad’s super truck gets a whopping 6-9 miles per gallon.

    Why is the title about hiding black cards, yet you have Paris Hilton, Nicholas Cage and many other non Blacks on the list? Sometimes, I think you guys forget your own topics.

  • silksoul

    It would be nice if you actually showed the items, like Chads “Super Truck”, instead of showing a picture of him. We know what he looks like, we however don’t know what the truck looks like.

    re: Rhianna : “$1 million per year – approximately 25 times more than the average American spends on yearly hair care.”

    $40,000 X 25 = $1,000,000

    Do you really expect us to believe the average American spends $40,000/year on hair care?

    Or (more likely) do you expect your reader base to lack intelligence to such a degree they will believe all you say without question?

  • akon mine was a good investment not a waste of money

  • Dgrrl

    So I have to click through 50 pages with no pictures lol, pics or it didn’t happen

    As long as they put some of the money away for a rainy day (or the end of their career) i don’t care what they buy. It’s when they go bankrupt from buying dumb stuff that i think they’re stupid. Buying a town? Not necessary. A diamond mine? That’s making money probably. And let’s face it, you’d love to have a dinosaur skill too.

  • Ricoswag305

    Hey if your filthy rich why not have some fun. If I had that type of money I would prolly do some stupid ish too. Chad if your reading this ill buy your truck from you if it hasn’t been repossessed yet I’ll take over the payments

  • Why is Kim Bassinger and Nicolas Cage in here? Are they black? I only ask because of the title.

    • Kaori

      Hahaha! The ‘black card’ they are talking about is the Amex Centurion Card.

    • msgeegee

      LOL….no way girl.

    What I find most outrageous is how consumed other people are with what celebs do with their money. That is their money; they earned it and how they spend/blow/donate/use their money is their business. If they make bad buying decisions, they are no more different than the hundreds and thousands of other Americans that make foolish purchases and get in debt knowing they really do not have the the means to do so. The only difference is that they are in the public eye and we are not. I say do whatever you want with what you earned! You can’t take it with you so you might as well enjoy it. As long as what they do does not negatively impact others, then I don’t see what the problem is. They are hurting no one. We need to stop being overly concerned about what others do with their money and focus on what we are doing with ours. Heck half the people that are being critical are probably in debt as we speak. Smh and lmbo!.

  • Baddvixentype

    but we in a recession though right…sigh… yet we have millions to pay to entertainers so they could just blow away. really pisses me off! None of that will last…(except that diamond mine…good idea i think)

  • pickneychile

    Dang and here I was mad that I spent $18 on shrimp scampi yesterday!

  • Na Na

    I don’t think buying a diamond mine is ridiculous at all.

    • Cakester

      I thought the same thing…

    • Jewel B

      Especially if it’s making him some money.

  • Say What?

    Rihanna and Beyonce probably write off those purchases as a business expense and I’m being completely honest.

  • Gworl!

    Wth! It’s like if you’re a celebrity you haven’t really made it until you blow money on some dumb ish. And why is Lady GaGa scared of evil spirits yet it seems like she’s possessed by one? That don’t make no dang sense!

    • Sheena

      I was just gonna say does th machine detect her?! Cause clearly she has some demonic possession going on.
