Madonna
The material girl spent $40 million on an Upper East Side New York mansion. The quippy singer has named her newest abode "Far East."

Will & Jada Smith
This $20 million California estate took over 7 years to build. It has its own lake and two private par threes in the “backyard.” But, as they say, location is everything. And in California, land of mudslides and bush fires, that couldn’t be truer. In 2005, the Smith family was forced to evacuate when the house was threatened by fire. I bet their insurance company was holding their collective breath on that one.
