It's that time again! Time to check out all the reasons the stars have shown they're nothing like us this February. First up is Mariah Carey! Earlier in February 2017, the diva released a new music video for her song "I Don't," and fans noted that it featured a very expensive prop. The video shows the singer throwing her $250,000 custom-made Valentino dress into a fire pit. And yes, it's the quarter-of-a-million-dollar gown she was planning to wear at her now-canceled nuptials to Australian billionaire James Packer. Maybe she should have saved it in case things keep going well with dancer Bryan Tanaka? Keep reading to see even more insane celebrity news stories!

We know women in Hollywood often rely on extensions to get their long, voluminous locks — but the men too?! Matt Damon opened up about his need for extensions for his role in "The Great Wall," and let's just say he now knows what women go through for beauty. The actor confessed his man bun in the flick required 700 extensions and took 12 hours to create. "I have a whole new appreciation for my wife and daughter," he told Graham Norton.

Yikes! When you're a celebrity, you know you have to worry about tabloids printing false stories about you, but the Associated Press? Apparently stars should look out for the legit news agency too, as the AP released an alert on Feb. 1, 2017, claiming Ariana Grande was pregnant. The post was quickly deleted, since it's completely inaccurate, but it begs the question — did they mean to post it on April 1?

Most 3-year-olds have a cake at their birthday party and maybe some balloons. But when you're Simon Cowell's son Eric, no expense is spared! The "X Factor" judge reportedly spent $12,000 on his son's shindig, which was dinosaur-themed and held at London's Mandarin Oriental hotel.
When normal folk sell their old stuff, they usually turn to Craigslist. But not Oprah Winfrey! The mogul recently sold a painting for more than most people make in a lifetime! Oprah's "Portrait of Adele Bloch-Bauer" by Gustav Klimt sold to a Chinese buyer for… wait for it… $150 million! Though that's chump change when compared to Oprah's $2.9 billion net worth.
Beyonce and Jay Z spare no expense when it comes to their daughter's wardrobe! Blue Ivy Carter didn't just wear any dress to the NBA All-Star Game on Feb. 19, 2017… she wore an $1,800 Gucci dress! And it's not even the first time Blue has worn the designer this month: She donned a pink Gucci suit for the Grammys.
Celebrities have a tendency to think the world revolves around them. And why not? They have millions of followers, millions of dollars, and everything's handed to them on a silver platter. But that doesn't mean they can trademark their first names! When Kylie Jenner recently tried to trademark "Kylie," another famous Kylie shut it down. Australian pop legend Kylie Minogue hired attorneys who argued the trademark should be denied, citing the potential for brand "dilution" and customer confusion — and the elder Kylie won! Kylie Jenner's request was denied on Feb. 6, 2017.
Paying $40K for a baby shower? While most people would barely spend that on a car, if you're Tori Spelling and your mom Candy Spelling hosts your shower at the Hotel Bel-Air, that's no big deal. Candy recruited celebrity party planner Mindy Weiss to help her organize the fancy shindig, which only hosted 50 people. (Yep, that's about $800 a head.)
Most little girls grow up loving Barbie, and Gigi Hadid was no different. Now that she's a bona fide supermodel, she still feels the same way — especially because she has her very own version of the doll! Mattel rolled out the first pics of the Gigi Barbie on Feb. 7, 2017, and it looks exactly like her!
Diva behavior! While most models would be honored to land within the pages of the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue, veteran Kate Upton reportedly threw quite a fit while the mag considered including her again. Kate, who graced SI's coveted swimsuit cover in both 2012 and 2013, reportedly demanded the cover position again as well as the right to choose which photographers and hair and makeup people she'd work with. Whether or not the rumbles of her diva attitude are true, she did end up getting that coveted cover in 2017.
Musicians dream of accepting a Grammy Award their whole lives. When the guys of Twenty One Pilots were announced as the winners of the Best Pop Duo/Group Performance prize, they did something they'd been dreaming about their whole lives: accepting a Grammy without their pants. Tyler Joseph and Josh Dun took off their pants after hearing they'd won and graced the 2017 Grammys stage in their undies. That's rock 'n' roll, we guess?
Maybe you've reignited the flame with an ex — no judgment. But would it make headline news? If you're former "The Bachelor" and "The Bachelorette" contestants Amanda Stanton and Josh Murray, it certainly will. The pair split a few months ago after getting engaged on 2016's "Bachelor in Paradise," but that didn't stop them from locking lips on Feb. 19, 2017. Us Weekly reported on Josh and Amanda's public affection in Los Angeles that night, and a source shared that the couple was "working on things." No privacy, especially not for reality stars!
