18 Times Celebs Shocked Me With How Out Of Touch They Are

Imagine having these "problems"????

Have you ever noticed that some rich-ass celebs love to act like they're not extremely wealthy, privileged, and well connected? For some reason, they hate acknowledging it, and it's annoying as all hell.

Here are 18 times they were super out of touch with how rich they actually are:

1. When Oprah couldn't fathom that $100 was a lot of money for a Christmas budget:

2. When El*n M*sk decided to charge journalists — who are notoriously underpaid — $8 for Twitter verification:

The amount of pro psy ops on Twitter is ridiculous! At least with new Verified they will pay $8 for the privilege haha.


3. When James Charles made a video of his most expensive outfit — $111,000+ — during this economy:

4. When Lily Allen tweeted this about nepo babies, SMH:

The nepo babies y’all should be worrying about are the ones working for legal firms,the ones working for banks,and the ones working in politics, If we’re talking about real world consequences and robbing people of opportunity. BUT that’s none of my business.

8. When Grimes talked about ex Elon Musk and said, "Bro does not live like a billionaire. ... Bro lives at times below the poverty line — to the point where I was like, 'Can we not live in a very insecure $40,000 house?'"

9. When Finneas — the child of actors and musicians — said in a now-deleted tweet, "'Shooting your shot' is promoted widely and I think honestly, it's a little overrated. Work super hard alone or with your closest friends. Make shit so good it speaks for itself. Don't pester people to work with you, let them come to you."

10. When James Corden allegedly demanded free drinks at Balthazar in New York City and was "diabolical" to staff, according to owner Keith McNally.

12. When millionaire actor Gwyneth Paltrow participated in a $29 food stamps weekly budget challenge:

This is what $29 gets you at the grocery store—what families on SNAP (i.e. food stamps) have to live on for a week.

Kendall nodded along with Justin and said, "Yeah, I think about it all the time."
