Even rich celebrities live like normal people.
There is a popular belief that all celebrities drive luxurious cars, have huge mansions, and a wardrobe full of expensive clothes, shoes, and bags. This because media is inundated by stories of celebrities wasting more money in a day than many poor people spend in a year. Contrary to the belief, not all celebrities live like rich people. There are many rich celebrities who live more modestly than most of us.
Money, however, can’t completely change who you are. There are some habits that are hard to shake, even money cannot make you get rid of them. The way you spend or don’t spend your money says a lot about you.
