A paparazzi-style peak into the glamorous lives of celebrities from their many different industries brings quite a literal meaning to the phrase “time is money,” simply because 9.5/10 times, when a celebrated person is passing some time, they’re inevitably also spending money — lots of it! While celebrities of all sorts might surprisingly spend their time enjoying doing the things that us mere mortals do, their often big bank accounts just allow them to do more of those things on a much bigger scale than the average Jane on the street.
For all the freebies and sponsored merchandise celebrities are constantly showered with, one would think that they didn’t have to spend their time closing down exclusive clothing stores or even just filling up their trolleys with regular groceries, like we all do. Well they definitely have a lot of money to spend, so shopping in celebville is one almighty event that can sometimes take up an entire day.
For those cream-of-the-crop, A-list celebrities however, shopping is a matter of survival in celebville. Between the many different Fashion Police type shows, it’d almost certainly equate to career suicide for an A-lister to be seen wearing the same outfit twice, so shopping, particularly for clothes, will always dominate how celebs spend their time.
Gambling is probably the one thing a lot of celebrities spend their time doing that’ll surprise you the most out of the three we’re exploring. Sure, you’ve probably read about the pre-match late night gambling escapades of footballers such as Lionel Messi and a couple of his Barcelona teammates, or you might in fact have even spotted an movie industry veteran like Sly Stallone surprisingly trying his luck in the non-VIP section of a popular Las Vegas casino. What you’ll be surprised to learn however is that many gambling celebrities aren’t always exclusively about being spotted at a physical casino, rather choosing to spend some of their celebrity millions gambling online. They’re reluctant to mention any names, but sites such as slotsheaven.com, which offers plenty of online slots games, take much delight in seeing some Hollywood A-listers, footballers, musicians, talk-show hosts, high-ranking politicians and all types of celebrities funding their online gaming accounts for some gambling fun to be had remotely and anonymously.
You’d have probably thought entertainment would be the third activity featured on our short list of what celebrities spend their time (and money) doing. Entertainment in the world of the rich and famous largely means something completely different to what you and I deem to be entertaining. I mean think about it — celebrities often become celebrities because of the various roles they assume as entertainers, so entertainment is in a sense work for them and subsequently something they want to stay far away from in their free time. Taking into account some weird and twisted ideas of what constitutes entertainment, celebrities often have to travel very far to get their entertainment fixes, which is precisely the reason why travelling is indeed one of the top three ways in which celebs spend their free time.
Celebs often also want to get away from the prying eyes of fans and especially the media, so they have to travel quite a bit in order to reach those destinations that actively shield them from the media and over-eager fans, like Monaco or Necker Island. One thing that’s for certain though is that they surely travel in fine style.
