Can it get any crazier? These five celebrities have had very special furnishing wishes fulfilled in their houses and apartments. But it’s more than just the size of the property or the number of rooms that attract attention here. These celebrities have furnished their homes with unusual or peculiar features. But see for yourself:
The Hollywood and Broadway legend Barbra Streisand can look back on over half a century of extremely successful music, film and theater careers. Over the years numerous props, costumes, prizes and all sorts of other personal valuables have accumulated. It would be a shame to hide them in an ordinary basement! Instead, Streisand had a complete shopping mall built under her property in Malibu. It is of course not operated in the conventional sense. In the old-fashioned rows of shops, nothing goes over the counter and you won’t find any staff down there either. But it is definitely an exceptionally original way of showing off your own favorite pieces.
Lady Gaga follows in the footsteps of Barbra Streisand in many ways. Most recently she took on the lead role of Streisand in the remake of “A Star is Born” and was invited by the latter to dinner at her house. Was Lady Gaga inspired there by the shopping mall in the basement? The basement of her own Malibu home features a 1960s-style bowling alley and several basketball hoops. There is also a wine cellar with around 800 bottles.
The career and life of John Travolta have had many ups and downs, but one passion continues uninterrupted to this day: flying. Travolta holds a commercial pilot license and is allowed to pilot a number of different types of aircraft. A few years ago, the Hollywood star was one of the first pilots allowed to fly the Airbus A380. So much love for flying can also be seen at his house. Travolta and his wife Kelly Preston basically live in nothing more than an independent airport terminal on the site of the small Jumbolair Airport in Florida, a gated community for aeronauts. A runway connects directly to the house, on which Travolta’s private planes are parked and which can be observed from the living room.
2007 was an eventful year for Britney Spears. The pop star experienced a psychological breakdown in front of the media public, had his head shaved and went into addiction therapy. During the same period, she tried to sell her property in Malibu – initially for $ 13.5 million. But that was too much for most of the interested parties and the sale turned out to be difficult. One of the reasons: The house was too over the top, each room had its own drinks bar.
Hold my beer, “thought the rapper 50 Cent when he heard of Britney’s difficulties selling her house. His huge 4500 square meter mansion in Connecticut had been for sale for 12 years before it was sold for 2.9 in early 2019 It changed hands in a million dollars and was originally listed for $ 18.5 million in 2007. Understandably, there aren’t that many people who want to buy a property that costs $ 70,000 a month to maintain. With 52 rooms, the villa is not just big – the future owner will also find unusual furnishings in it. These include an indoor pool, an outdoor pool, several casino-style arcades, a recording studio, two basketball courts and … its own nightclub including strip bars.
