The Drill Down Black Friday Inspiration: The Most Bizarre Celebrity Purchases Published 3 months ago on Nov 19, 2018 By Michael Evans Black Friday is just around the corner, with plenty of deals gearing up the holiday season. Though most of us are excited to save on big purchases, these celebrities thought money was no issue for their grandiose purchase. Instead of following these five celebrities’ lead on Black Friday, you’ll hopefully end up with some cash still in your pocket after the shopping spree. Katy Perry Gave Russel Brand A $200,000 Ticket To Space Celebrity couples likely spend a little more than we do on each other’s gifts. But, Katy Perry really outdid herself with the gift she bought for then-fiance Russel Brand’s 35th birthday. Perry bought him a personal ticket into space from Richard Branson’s spaceship company, Virgin Galactic. Since Perry and Brand have divorced, it’s unclear as to whether he kept this gargantuan gift or if Perry will be the one taking the space voyage. Factinate Kim Basinger Bought Braselton, Georgia Kim Basinger was a proud Georgia native and decided to show her love for the state by purchasing $20 million worth of land in Braselton. She had plans to modernize the agricultural town with tourist attractions but had to sell her shares due to bankruptcy. However, her initial investment surely helped Braselton become the thriving town it is today.

However, Nick Cannon and Mariah Carey really took the cake by building a custom candy room in their house for their kids to enjoy. The huge playroom was set up exactly like a candy store, with hundreds of sweets organized into different drawers. Nick and Mariah have since split, but their kids Monroe and Moroccan still get to enjoy their candy dreamland.
