Because celebrities are not "just like us."
If there's one thing that celebrity magazines have taught us, it's that "celebrities are just like us."
They use their mouths to eat food, and they occasionally use their legs to walk outdoors. Sometimes they don't even look like a team of makeup artists and fashion designers have sculpted every facet of their look! So normal.
Here's the thing, though. Celebrities are weird. It takes a strange personality (and maybe some underlying mental health issues) to want that much attention. And sometimes when a person with a strange personality (and maybe some underlying mental health issues) gets way too much money, they really start to lose touch with reality and end up manifesting their strangeness with some of the craziest homes the world has ever seen.
Homes so strange that they can almost never find buyers at full price. Homes like...
Nicolas Cage's Dragon House
Celine Dion's Waterpark House
Robert Downey Jr.'s Windmill House
Drake's Yolo Estate
Jordan McGraw's "Tim Burton" House
Penn Jillette's "Slammer"
Michael Jackson's Neverland Ranch
Naomi Campbell's Eye of Horus House
Dick Clark's Flintstone House
Bob Hope's Spaceship House
John Travolta's Airport House
Naomi Campbell's Spaceship/Airport House
Now that we've got these 12 in the books, the next generation of crazy celebrities will know to aim higher.
