Lil Wayne Apparently Immune to Financial Crisis

lil wayne Lil Wayne Apparently Immune to Financial CrisisWith the economy in the can, we’d like to think that rock stars would show a little restraint—that they might think twice before buying their second Bentley or their third McMansion. A little naïve, yes … but still, we can’t help but be a touch disappointed with the behavior of Lil Wayne’s entourage at his ginormous 26th birthday bash this week.

According to Perez Hilton and Young Black & Fabulous, Wayne’s “adopted father,” Birdman, flew the rapper down to Miami on Monday for a poppin’ celebration at hot spot Mansion. The party’s centerpiece was a giant Cash Money Records ice sculpture replete with 30 bottles of Cristal (retail price: $1,000) and a handful of $100 bills frozen in the ice. But the evening’s real pièce de résistance was Birdman’s birthday present to his young prodigy: a Louis Vuitton bag stuffed with $1 million in cold hard cash.

Princess Olympia of Greece and Denmark 

The only daughter of Pavlos and Marie-Chantal, the Crown Prince and Princess of Greece, has quite the Instagram presence. Her posts include front row shots from NYFW, tacos with friends at La Esquina and soft serve at Cha Cha Matcha, all for her 98,000 followers. The Parsons School of Design student is also quite the jet-setter, spending time in New York, London, Los Angeles and Hong Kong (and that's just in the last month). She pulled the ultimate royal move and was rumored to have been dating her godfather's son, Prince Harry. She is his type: blonde and aristocratic, with a major penchant for hipster, Coachella-worthy ensembles, just like his ex Cressida Bonas. The 20-year-old princess counts Hollywood elite Sofia Richie and fellow royal (and cousin) Talita von Fürstenberg as pals. Unlike other New York City college students who celebrated their birthdays dancing on tables at Greek restaurants in the East Village, Princess Olympia spent hers in Mykonos, despite not speaking a word of Greek. Her mother worked for Andy Warhol before marrying into the royal family. Yes, her whole life is all very Gossip Girl.
