Famous female singers understand that they are in an industry where image really is everything and that it can be crucial to their level of success. How these stars do their hair and makeup, what they wear, where they live, and even what they drive all revolve around their image and how they want you see them.
Sure, these divas have all of the money in the world to buy a luxury vehicle. However, if they somehow want an average Joe car, their “people” are just not going let that happen. If they want you to think that the singer is cool and chic, you are not going to see them cruising around Beverly Hills in some old station wagon.
When you’re getting paid millions each year to belt out the tunes that people have come to love, you want to look the part. You only look as good the car you drive, and the top female singers in the world know that. These cars cost more than most people’s houses, so they better look good.
#7 – Katy Perry’s Audi A5 ($50,000)
California girl Katy Perry purchased her black Audi A5 back in 2009 – the same year she got engaged to ex-spouse Russell Brand. This luxurious, yet modest (in the realm of celebrity) car has 265 horsepower, a 3.2 liter V-6 engine, and accelerates to 60 mph in just six seconds. The A5 interior is elegant and sophisticated in design. This classy ride obviously did not suit the trashy, former frequent passenger Russell Brand, but it definitely suits Katy Perry. However, considering all of the millions she’s made since the Russell days, it may be time for an upgrade for a new ride and a new guy!
#6 – Lady Gaga’s Audi R8 GT ($162,000)
When I picture what the eccentric Lady Gaga would drive, I automatically think of a UFO. But since flying saucers aren’t available for purchase on our planet, I guess Gaga had to make a compromise. Only 333 Audi R8 GT’s were made, and Gaga is the lucky owner of one of them. This extremely rare, exotic sports car has 525 horsepower, a top speed of 199 mph, and can go from 0 to 60 mph in just 3.6 seconds. The Audi R8 GT’s stunning visual drama jibes perfectly with the theatrical performer. This may be the only vehicle out there that can make Gaga go Goo Goo, other than that UFO of course.
#5 – Jennifer Lopez’s Bentley ($250,000)
Jennifer Lopez’s image is all about seduction, just watch her “Booty” music video. This 45 year old mother of two has no qualms about showing off her booty and every other part of her body for that matter. She’s often seen wearing very revealing, sexy outfits, and in the arms of younger men. So, it’s not all that surprising that JLO drives a flashy, sleek white Bentley convertible. It has 560 horsepower, accelerates from 0 to 60 mph in 4.8 seconds, and has a top speed of 200 mph. With those specs, the Bentley must help Jennifer feel forever young!
#4 – Gwen Stefani’s Rolls-Royce Wraith ($400,000)
Gwen Stefani’s style is all about that perfect mix of the classic and the contemporary. She’s often seen wearing circa 1930’s red lipstick with contrasting edgy-chic hairdos. L.A.M.B., Gwen’s fashion line, has a vintage yet modern street feel. So, what better car for her to drive around Tinseltown than the elegant but daring Rolls-Royce Wraith?! Her dark blue Wraith has 624 horsepower, is powered by 6.6 liter V12 engine, and has a 4.6 second standing start. This luxury supercar’s yacht-like interior is packed with every technology you can imagine, such as an “on-board valet”.
#3 – Nicki Minaj’s Lamborghini Aventador ($400,000)
Nicki Minaj is known for her flamboyant hairpieces and multiple sassy personalities. She also happens to be a massively rich rapper. “The Harajuku Barbie”, one of Nicki’s most famous alter egos, loves all things pink. So naturally, “Barbie” drives a pink car. What’s not so natural is that it’s a pink Lamborghini Aventador! This rare, exotic sportscar has over 500 horsepower, a 6.5 liter V12 engine, and can accelerate from 0 to 62 mph in 2.9 seconds. If this crazy “Barbie” speeds up to the maximum 217 mph, she just might “accidentally” run over Ken!
#2 – Rihanna’s Lamborghini Aventador ($750,000)
Last year, Rihanna received her luxurious red Lamborghini Aventador as a gift from Chris Brown. Did Chris Brown choose “red” to symbolize his undying love for Rihanna, or as some sick momento almost 4 years to the date when he had bloodied and beaten her in his silver Lambo? Yikes! Your guess is as good as mine. Lets hope its the undying love one for Rihanna’s sake, especially since she’s somehow still dating the troubled Chris Brown. The Lamborghini Aventador has 700 horsepower, a V12 engine, an acceleration from 0 to 60 mph in 2.9 seconds, and top speed of 217 mph. At least when Chris Brown gets those crazy eyes, Rihanna can blast off fast!
#1 – Beyonce Knowles’ 1959 Rolls Royce Silver Cloud II Convertible ($1 Million)
If you had Jay Z’s money, and could buy Beyonce (who already has everything) anything for her milestone 25th birthday, what would it be? She’s beautiful, classy, stylish, and fearsomely talented. Well, you could always take the girl out to the Red Lobster, or if you are feeling extra fancy, you could buy her a 1959 Rolls Royce Silver Cloud II Convertible for $1 Million Dollars! Jay Z surprised Beyonce with the very rare, luxury vintage vehicle, along with a cutesy “Reserved For Mrs. Carter” sign on the driver’s seat. Life is good if you are Mrs. Carter!
