The material girl spent $40 million on an Upper East Side New York mansion. The quippy singer has named her newest abode "Far East." Her house even has both the Lexington and Third Avenue subway trains passing underneath it. For $40 million you would think you could escape the shaking of a New York subway. As long as the eau de piss doesn’t float up, she should be ok.

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.
Oprah Winfrey’s $52 million Promised Land
Oprah currently lives on a 42-acre Montecito, California estate she calls The Promised Land. With both ocean and mountain views right outside of beautiful Santa Barbara she might not be exaggerating with the name. It has 6 bedrooms, 14 bathrooms, 10 fireplaces and a home theater. She added a man-made lake stocked with rare fish. Oprah’s property has the largest amount of green space in Santa Barbara although we’re not sure how she’ll keep it that way during the next drought.
