What Celebrities Splurged On After Their First Big Payday

For most people, their first big paycheck goes towards paying the bills or a shopping spree at the local mall, but things are a little different for celebrities. Their first big paychecks aren’t a couple hundred dollars, but more like a couple thousand dollars.

It would be nearly impossible to decide what lavish item to buy first, which is why it’s hilarious to read what these celebrities decided on. One musician spent his paycheck to fund an unlimited supply of barbecued meat. Or there’s also the celebrities who spend it spoiling their parents. Check out what your favorite celebrities did when the cold, hard cash started flowing in.
