(Newser) – Being rich and famous is great, but sometimes celebrities don't want to be hounded. SheFinds rounds up nine celebrities who've used decoys. A sampling:

  • Katy Perry used a friend as a body double at an Australian airport.
  • Madonna used multiple lookalikes during her MDNA tour.

  • Even baby Prince George reportedly has his own decoy...
  • ...as does baby North West. A decoy that cost $500,000, that is.
  • Lady Gaga tried to use a decoy in 2012 to to exit her tour bus, but the "lookalike" didn't actually look like Gaga.
Click for the complete list, including an entire band currently looking for decoys.
