In case you had forgotten that celebrities are not just like you, we have a bunch of recent evidence for you:

  • Madonna’s daughter Lourdes turned 16 recently, and as we all know, 16 is a big deal. So of course her mum bought her … an apartment, the Daily Star reports. It seems the teen has been rebelling lately, and for some reason Madonna figured the solution would be to let her move out. But don’t worry, the apartment is only a few blocks away from Madonna’s in Manhattan, and is of course close to the Kabbalah Centre.

  • Most of us spend about 30 bucks on our Halloween costumes, but not Kim Kardashian. She went to a party Saturday night as the mermaid Daryl Hannah played in Splash, and her blonde wig—made from real human hair, of course—set her back $2,000. No word on how much she paid boyfriend Kanye West, who carried the tail of her costume around so she wouldn’t trip, the New York Daily News reports.
  • Usher may take the cake: On Thursday, he spent $12,000 on a puppy, Us reports. But don’t fret, he bought the goldendoodle at a charity gala, so at least that 12 grand is going to a good cause.
