A TikTok video which shows various celebrities’ homes before and after they found fame is going viral.
In the clip, TikTok user @catherinethecrazy shares snaps of houses belonging to Eminem, Ariana Grande, Rihanna, John Travolta and Beyonce pre- and post-stardom, and the difference is pretty staggering.
The houses after they found fame are obviously sprawling mansions nestled into the hills of Los Angeles, complete with multiple wings, numerous swimming pools, and a couple of private jets.
Many TikTok users were quick to point out however that a majority of the ‘before’ homes weren’t exactly tiny, especially in Beyonce and Ariana’s case.
‘Wow Ariana and Beyonce already had a nice home,’ wrote one user, which was echoed in another comment, saying: ‘beyonce and ariana had it good before too’. Many chose to specify Ariana’s pre-fame privilege: ‘Ariana grande her first house is like a dream [let] alone her second one’, and ”Ariana didn’t even need a new home hers was incredible’.
Many also commented how the biggest difference was that between Eminem’s ‘before’ and ‘after’ properties. One TikToker said: ‘Oh ok so Beyonce went from already rich to rich, rich. Eminem deserves it all he really started from the bottom, fair play to him’, while another added how the 48-year-old rapper deserved his success: ‘let’s be honest eminem deserves everything he’s gotten bc he’s worked hard for it’.
Something that also caught everyone’s eye was the fact that John Travolta just casually has two planes on his driveway. You know, just in case the car won’t start.
‘Uhm we gonna ignore the fact that John Travolta just had an airplane chilling in his front yard???’, said one user. ‘john travolta casually has a plane in front of his house no biggie’, said another.
John Travolta is officially the new king of ‘extra’.
