Have you ever wondered how much it costs celebrities to look that fantastic? Dolly Parton, a country music legend, once said that she spent a lot of money to “look this cheap”. She may have been joking about her looks, but she was right about the money. Celebrities like Kim Kardashian and Kylie Jenner spend thousands of pounds just to look good and make a fashion statement. They also spend hours in front of a mirror doing their makeup, and their efforts pay off. On social media, the two have a combined following of 177.1 million followers who copy their every fashion move. In the following article, we will delve into the real cost of a celebrity look.

Celebrities will invade 2014 Super Bowl

Celebrities are always drawn to Super Bowl weekend, but this year the big game is in New York City. Yes, this will be the first outdoor Super Bowl played in a Northern city and we might just get a cold and snowy day. Still, that won’t stop the anticipated celebrity invasion to the Big Apple.

It will be led by the incomparable Bruno Mars. While you’re laying down your 2014 Super Bowl bets, he’ll be getting geared up for what should be an epic halftime show. The NFL has insisted on getting huge stars for the halftime show, but many of them have been old school rock acts like the Rolling Stones and The Who in recent years. Yes, we also had Madonna and Black Eyed Peas, but in Mars we get a star that definitely appeals to the younger generation, and particularly younger women.

The celebrities won’t be drawn to just the game. We can probably expect to see an invasion of celebrities who just hang out in Manhattan for all of the epic Super Bowl parties in the week leading up to the game. We can expect publications like Maxim and brands like Bud to have a huge presence with their parties, and this year the celebrity guest lists will be even longer. It should be fun to see how many D-Listers try to get into these parties to raise their own profile. Just showing up on a Super Bowl party red carpet can raise the profile of a celebrity dying to be talked about in the gossip rags.

Is it worth going to New York for that weekend? On the one hand these parties will be obscenely crowded and difficult to get in to. On the other hand, New York is so damn big so you’ll always find a place to party.


Celebrities who like gambling

At one point people wondered what effect online casino sites would have on gambling, but they have led to more people than ever taking it up as a hobby – and even Hollywood A-Listers seem to have fallen under the betting spell.

Ben Affleck

At one time Ben Affleck was seen as something of a joke figure, but he has reinvented himself as a skilled writer/director in recent years, and he has also proven himself to be a more than decent casino gambler. He won the California State Poker Championship back in 2004, which involved beating 90 other competitors. Dare we suggest that the inexpressive face which makes him such an average actor is perfectly suited to the world of poker?

Matt Damon

The man who has starred so often alongside Affleck – and won an Oscar with him for Good Will Hunting – also shares his enthusiasm for the poker tables. Damon has become a regular participant in the World Series of Poker, which is probably the biggest tournament of them all – although he didn’t accept the rumoured $1 million offered by a television station to be the public face of the tournament.

Ashton Kutcher

Kutcher belied his ‘himbo’ image when he became part of a gambling syndicate which took a cool $750,000 in just month betting on college football. The star of various low brow comedies has claimed that his dopey image actually led to people underestimating him in the gambling world, and presumably he’ll be hoping for a similar result when his divorce case with Demi Moore goes to court.

50 Cent

The rapper is another fan of betting on sports – although he prefers NFL to college football – and has been so successful in this hobby that he once won $500,000 gambling on a single game during the season. He subsequently went on to Twitter to share his good fortune – well a photograph of it – with his millions of followers.

Many other celebrities enjoy the odd bit of betting, however many play in the comfort of their own home at Jackpot City so not to be seen in the media as being a gambler.


Celebrities and the Kentucky Derby

While most of the country seems to be covered in snow, it’s easy to forget that spring is right around the corner. There are tons of great events coming up like March Madness, baseball’s Opening Day, The Masters and of course the Kentucky Derby, all events where we often see celebrities coming out to enjoy themselves.

The Kentucky Derby is one of the more popular events for celebrities, as women get decked out in beautiful dresses and those amazing hats. It’s a perfect atmosphere for celebrity red carpets, and in recent years we’ve seen the likes of Kim Kardashian, Paris Hilton and Marisa Miller. So at the Derby you can drink up your Mint Juleps, watch some beautiful women in their sexy hats, and of course bet on Kentucky Derby winners.

The video above from Maxim shows just how fun the parties can be for the Derby. Maxim of course has one of the better parties, with tons of attractive models and plenty of celebrities strutting on the red carpet. In this video you’ll see the beautiful Erin Andrews among other celebrities. The key is making an entire weekend out of the event. It’s not just about the races, the horses and placing bets, though that’s a huge part of why everyone is there. It’s really a Southern celebration, and women plan their entire weekend around the different dresses and hats they’ve picked out. Every night there are tons of parties all around town, and you don’t have to be at a celebrity party to enjoy yourself.

On race day, you can pay more to have a more elegant time in the stands, or you can get crazy in the infield with cases of beer and a bunch of wild party animals.

Either way, it’s a great time, and planning a trip there can help you get through your winter blues.


10 Highly Educated Celebrities

When you think about celebrities, you probably assume that they came to their fame without having much education. There are more celebrities than you may think with degrees — and not just a bachelor’s degree. Here is a list of 10 celebrities who have graduate degrees.

1. David Duchovny: Duchovny is best known for his role as Agent Mulder on The X-Files and more recently as Hank Moody on Californication. Before beginning his career, however, Duchovny received a master’s degree in English literature from Yale University.

2. Rowan Atkinson: If Atkinson’s name isn’t familiar, you’re likely familiar with one of his most famous characters, Mr. Bean. Although Atkinson has made it a career playing the idiot, he is far from it. Before acting, he first got a master’s degree in electrical engineering from Oxford.

3. Shaquille O’Neal: Shaq’s degree came later in life. After earning his bachelor’s degree in 2000 in general studies, he went on to earn his MBA online through the University of Phoenix.

4. Sigourney Weaver: Before her acting career took off, Weaver earned a master’s degree in art from Yale University’s School of Drama.

5. Bill Cosby: Famous for his stand-up comedy on everyday life, including giving his children chocolate cake for breakfast (after all, it has eggs and milk and flour), Bill Cosby believed education was important. Even while being successful with comedy and acting, Cosby earned a doctorate degree in education from the University of Massachusetts.

6. Art Garfunkel: Although he was known more for his music with Paul Simon, Arthur Garfunkle was also a math whiz earning a master’s degree in mathematics from Columbia University. 

7. Spike Lee: Though born as Shelton Jackson Lee, it was his mother who named him Spike because of how tough he was. Lee graduated from NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts in Film and Television. In fact, Lee has joined the ranks of celebrity professors by teaching film at NYU and Columbia.

8. Brian May: Though his first love is being a musician, as songwriter and lead guitarist for Queen, his second love is in astrophysics. Although he took time off from his doctoral studies to be a musician, he went back to school and, in 2007, earned his Ph.D. in astrophysics from the Imperial College in London.

9. Mayim Bialik: Best known for her role as Blossom in the show Blossom, Mayim Bialik earned her doctorate in neuroscience in 2008. Most recently, Bialik has returned to acting playing Amy Farrah Fowler on CBS’s The Big Bang Theory, where she plays a neurobiologist. 

10. Ken Jeong: Though Jeong is best known as a comedian, starting his career at The Improv and Laugh Factory comedy clubs and currently appearing in NBC’s Community, Jeong earned his medical degree from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and is affectionately referred to as Dr. Ken.

Knowing that so many celebrities have earned graduate degrees, doesn’t it make you feel like you could do it too?
