When normal people splurge it’s often on something small and somewhat affordable like an extra lunch out during the week or a nice pair of shoes. When celebrities splurge it’s almost always over-the-top and incredibly extravagant. The following celebrities have taken splurging to a whole new level with their out-of-control purchases. Who knew Damien Hirst even customized baby monitors?

The father of six definitely has more money than he knows what to do with. While he usually spends his considerable fortune on philanthropic endeavors, he recently treated himself to a very luxurious purchase: a $1 million painting. The painting, by German artist Neo Rauch, is just one piece from his incredible art collection.
Rihanna’s hair, $1 million
The singing chameleon loves to change her hair as much as twice a week. Her style is always evolving and, no surprise here, it comes with a hefty price tag. Rihanna reportedly sends over $1 million a year on hair care, extensions, weaves, and wigs to keep her looking fresh and beautiful.

Lady Gaga, the singer and artist, is a gentle soul. So gentle in fact that she believes she is sensitive to becoming possessed by spirits. That’s right, Gaga is afraid of ghosts. She spent $50,000 on electro-magnetic field equipment to check the energy levels in her homes, tour buses, and hotel rooms to make sure there are no spirits around her.
