Young Hollywood Spending Machines. Megastardom goes hand in hand with megabucks -- even for teenagers. While some of Hollywood's biggest earners can't legally vote or drink, that doesn't mean they can't use a charge card. Cha-ching! Keep clicking to see some of young Hollywood's most outrageous purchases.
Pricey Purchase: $25,000 on a ruby-and-diamond pendant shaped like Stewie from "Family Guy"
Who knew Justin was such a big "Family Guy" fan? He'd better be, considering the loot he dropped on his Stewie necklace! The singer helped famous Beverly Hills jeweler Jason Arasheben design the fancy bauble, which contains over 12 carats of multicolored rubies and white diamonds set on 14-carat gold, according to TMZ. Think Selena Gomez can look forward to any jewelry this special?
Pricey Purchase: $200,000 on a Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG with gullwing doors
In 2010, Taylor reportedly signed a $25 million deal for "Breaking Dawn" parts one and two. So what's a measly $200K? This August, he bought a silver 2012
Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG after walking onto the lot, paying for the car and driving off the lot, TMZ reports. Taylor's new ride goes 0-60 in less than four seconds and can drive at nearly 200 mph, so it's safe to say that this "Twilight" star is going places... fast.
Pricey Purchase: $3.9 million on a house
Miley's only 19, and she's already purchased her third home. Her first was a $3.4 million house around the corner from her parents' in Toluca Lake, Calif. that she bought at 17. She also turned around a Florida condo for
a 6 percent profit. Her latest buy is a 5,173-square-foot compound in Studio City, Calif., boasting five bedrooms and six-and-a-half bathrooms on 1.15 acres (pictured), Zillow reports. The house also has a saltwater pool, home gym and lots of security. Think this one's a keeper?
Pricey Purchase: $55 million on a G5 jet
SB got pretty high on his 21st birthday -- literally! The "Crank That" rapper dropped $35 mil on a G5 jet to commemorate the occasion, TMZ reports. But that's not all! He also spent an additional $20 mil to pimp it out,
putting in 12 custom Italian leather seats, flat-screen TVs, four liquor bars, a travertine tiled floor and Brazilian hardwood cabinets. He also renovated the bathroom and had the jet painted to include his logo. Watch out, Donald Trump -- Soulja may have a flyer ride than you!
Pricey Purchases: $3.97 million on a house in Beverly Hills and $2.5 million on a house in Nashville
For someone who's on the road so much, Taylor loves her real estate! This spring, the country cutie bought herself a $3.97 mil four-bedroom, four-bath colonial-style
pad on 1.37 acres in Beverly Hills (left), according to Realtor.com. Curbed.com that she's also snagged a new place in her adopted hometown of Nashville -- a 5,600-square-foot, four-bedroom, four-and-a-half-bathroom mansion with a pool and a 2,000-square-foot guesthouse called Northumberland Estate -- for $2.5 mil. Hey, she's gotta have something to come home to!
Pricey Purchase: $175,000 on a Lamborghini Gallardo, which he got custom painted to look like a jet fighter plane
There are loads of car fanatics in Hollywood, but Chris might be one of the biggest -- and youngest. In 2009, he
dropped $1.5 million on a super-rare Bugatti Veyron, according to The Frisky. As if that wasn't enough, CB also has a head-turning Lamborghini Gallardo, which is custom-painted to look like a P-51 Mustang jet fighter, Jalopnik reports. And boy, does that thing fly!
Pricey Purchase: $2.25 million on a house
Just a few years after the time when most girls finish playing with dollhouses, Demi started buying and selling houses. In 2009, the then-16-year-old singer-actress purchased a 5,086-square-foot, three-story house with
six bedrooms and seven bathrooms in Toluca Lake, Calif., for $1.88 million. But then last year, amid her personal turmoil, she upgraded to a $2.25 million Spanish-style home built onto a hillside in Sherman Oaks, Calif. (right), according to ShelterPop. Someone's got a future in real estate!
Pricey Purchase: $17,000 on a custom-made Savoir mattress
Being young and famous must be very tiring because Daniel needs his beauty sleep. He's such a particular sleeper, in fact, that he once spent $17K on a
custom-made Savoir mattress, according to People. Pretty crazy, we think, considering he's asleep when he's enjoying it.
Pricey Purchase: $2.75 million on a mansion
Back in 2008, a then-19-year-old Vanessa became a first-time homebuyer when she bought a six-bedroom, six-and-a-half-bath, 5,200-square-foot home in Studio City, Calif., according to the Los Angeles Times. For her
$2.75 million, she also got a pool, waterfalls, spa, barbecue island, wine cellar and total freedom from her parents. What more could a teen star want?
Pricey Purchase: $5 million on a penthouse apartment
The youngest JoBro is all grown up! This past spring, Nick got a new bachelor pad at The Residences at W Hollywood, according to Daily Fill. But despite getting his digs decorated by Kahi Lee, star of HGTV's "Design on a
Dime," we're guessing his furniture cost way more than a pretty penny.
Pricey Purchase: $6.9 million on a mansion
RiRi may have dropped a small fortune on a Beverly Hills mansion in late 2009, but she actually got it for a steal! The 10,000-square-foot, eight-bedroom hillside house was originally listed at $9.95 million, but when it didn't
attract buyers, it was lowered 30 percent to $6.9 million, X17 reports. Her gated digs include 270-degree views of the city, a sauna and steam room, a library, a gourmet kitchen, a home theater and a pool and spa.
