The High Life: 10 Photos Of Uber-Cool Celebrities And Their Private Jets
The dream life is becoming increasingly synonymous with fame and fortune rather than fundamental human emotions like happiness and love, which is arguably a worrying trend in itself. That said, we'd be lying if we said we weren't a tad jealous and enamoured by the lives of our favourite celebrities, especially when most can easily afford the ludicrous costs that come from booking a journey on a private plane.
Not only that, but they also look uber-cool when pictured next to them just like these 10 private jet-loving celebrities proved.
1. The Weeknd
Everybody's favorite Starboy is the talk of the town at the moment, with his unexpected rise to superstardom allowing the once homeless teen a life few will ever experience. In Forbes latest celebrity rich list, for instance, The Weeknd, whose real name is Abel Tesfaye, reportedly banked a mammoth $55m in just one year thanks to the worldwide success of his more pop-friendly album, Beauty Behind The Madness.
With such burgeoning riches, Abel will be able to travel the world in a plethora of private jets for a long, long time.
The electronic dance music superstar famously retired from his job at the tender age of 26 following an incredible rise to fame that quickly saw the Swede become one of the most in-demand DJs on Earth. But despite living a life many in his profession aspire to, the young star admitted that a life of private jets and non-stop partying didn't sit well with a naturally introverted person like himself, so he made the bold decision to quit live touring altogether.
Speaking about his decision to the Hollywood Reporter, Avicii, whose real name is Tim Bergling, said, "The scene was not for me. It was not the shows and not the music. It was always the other stuff surrounding it that never came naturally to me. All the other parts of being an artist. I'm more of an introverted person in general. It was always very hard for me. I took on board too much negative energy, I think.”
Still, with an estimated net worth of $54m, we're sure Avicii still enjoys the finer things in life.
3. Nick Jonas
Following the worldwide success of the Jonas Brothers, Nick decided to pursue a solo career which seems to have so far proved a success. The best looking of the three brothers, it's probably not surprising that Nick Jonas also likes to travel the world in style, and that includes having a plethora of female models accompanying him.
Just don't show them your purity ring, Nick! You don't want them getting the wrong idea!
4. Martin Garrix
Martin Garrix is now EDM's IT Guy following Avicci's much-publicised retirement, but unlike his Swedish counterpart, it appears the superstar DJ is more than happy with his jet-set lifestyle.
Touring around the world, the teenager certainly lives a life unlike most his age, but judging by this photo, we think he could happily reside in the celebrity bubble for the rest of his days.
Everyone loves this awe-inspiringly confident singer, who also happens to be one cool chick. Incredibly brazen, the singer still isn't someone to boast about her wealthy lifestyle and famously took public transport to one of her gigs in London!
However, Rihanna knows that she is in a privileged position, so you can forgive her for occasionally appearing braggadocious, albeit irrevocably beautiful in the photo above.
6. Calvin Harris
The world's highest earning DJ has come a long way from his days stacking shelves in his hometown Scottish suburb of Dumfries and years later, Harris, who modestly attributed his stratospheric success to being in the right place and the right time, is now fabulously wealthy.
Earning an eye-watering $63m in 2016 alone, Calvin probably already has enough money to own this private jet outright.
7. Justin Bieber
If posing in front of a private plane wasn't ostentatious enough, the Biebs had to go full-on-gangster on us and showcase his fleet of Lamborghinis, too.
Still, the jet in the background (if you can detract your eyes from his god-awful pants) is mightily impressive, and we're sure such luxuries are more than worth it for all the annoying screaming fans he has to contend with on a daily basis.
The biggest RNB star in the world has more than earnt is bragging rights ever since a string of mixtapes he uploaded online gave the former actor unexpected success as a singer.
Drake, whose real name is Aubrey Graham, earned a reported $38.5m last year, so it wouldn't be far off to suggest that Graham probably owns a jet by now as well.
9. Bella Hadid
Bella Hadid is one of the world's most successful models so you almost fear for her looks if she was made to travel economy (how would those legs cope?).
In yet another adventure for the supermodel, Bella was pictured with her bestie Elsa posing for a photo next to their private plane before being whisked off to a glamorous Victoria's Secret shoot in the Bahamas.
10. Lady Gaga
The idiosyncratic megastar never disappoints photographers and fans with our outfits, and just by looking at this divaish photo of Lady Gaga coming off her private jet, you can totally see why.
A special mention must, however, go to her ridiculously cute pug. Forget the plane, that pug could turn millions of more heads.
Can we adopt it, Gaga? Please? Pretty please?
