Musicians are well known for having a wild and over-the-top lifestyle, especially those lucky enough to make it to the top of the industry, with flashy cars, mansions, and diamonds being all the rage. A lot of musicians are quick to purchase their first Ferrari or bag a Range Rover as soon as they get their first paycheck, simply because it is the thing to do. However, some musicians are actually major car enthusiasts.
As soon as they have some wealth, they begin making purchases, and from there, the collection begins. Within this list, we will be taking a look at 10 musicians who have brilliant car collections and revealing a few vehicles that are in them.
10 Lady Gaga
The incredibly popular singer/actress is one of the most creative people in the music industry right now, often trying to break down boundaries within how people are portrayed in the media. However, one side of her that often isn't highlighted in the media is her love of cars, with Lady Gaga having quite an impressive collection of vehicles, from her Ford Bronco to owning not just one, but three different Rolls-Royces.
The favorite of hers in the collection though is the 1965 Lincoln Continental which she has covered in red leather inside, with wire-spoke wheels, making it a beautiful car to look at.
Speaking of legendary and powerful female musicians, arguably the biggest name in the industry right now for females, Beyonce is also known as a car enthusiast, having a wide collection herself. The Queen of pop mainly has very family-friendly cars, which make sense with Beyonce being a mother, owning minivans, SUVs, and vans, which enable her to be able to drive around with the family.
However, as expected for someone with as much class as Beyonce, she also owns some brilliant cars such as the Mercedes-Benz McLaren SLR, as well as sharing plenty of Jay-Z's incredible collection.
8 Kanye West
Kanye West is one of the biggest names in the music industry and is also one of the richest, which is why it isn't a major surprise to learn that he has a fantastic collection of cars at home. Even though he has had some difficulties with his cars, like someone joyriding his Porsche Panamera and crashing it into a house, his collection is one to be envious of, owning a variety of incredible supercars.
With notable cars such as the Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren and an Aston Martin DB9 being in his collection, West has a collection to truly be jealous of.
7 James Hetfield
James Hetfield has certainly lived a rock and roll lifestyle, being a major part of one of the biggest bands in rock history as the lead singer and co-founder of Metallica, Hetfield has achieved a lot in his life. While he might be on the road a lot, touring with the band, when he doesn't have to be on a huge bus he very much enjoys driving his own cars, with Hetfield having a wide collection of hot rods.
He has even named some of them, with his 1934 Packard being dubbed the Aquarius, while his 1936 Ford Coupe being named Iron Fist. Away from his cars, he also owns a strong collection of motorcycles.
6 50 Cent
From one iconic of music to another, 50 Cent is yet another musician with a staggering car collection, even though he may have lied about the Ferraris during his infamous MTV Cribs episode several years ago. Much like many big-name artists, 50 Cent boasts a wide collection of cars with the likes of a Pontiac G8 Special Edition, Ferrari F430, and a Lamborghini Murcielago being in his personal garage.
While he can be a controversial figure at times, there is no denying his talent or the impact he has had on the music industry, which has allowed him to reach this point in his life.
5 Snoop Dogg
Snoop Dogg is truly a one of a kind artist who has managed to stay relevant throughout his entire career, earning an incredible sum of money in the process, which has allowed him to build up a strong car collection.
However, even though Snoop Dogg owns plenty of impressive cars, his love goes even further as he actually goes out of his way to get his customized in crazy ways such as his 1967 Pontiac Parisienne, which he has custom gold and purple for the Lakers. Snoop prefers low riders and cars from the 70s, although he manages to give them all a little modern twist to make sure that they stand out and feel unique.
4 Wyclef Jean
The former Fugee frontman who is also known for his rapping and even his acting is another musician who has a hobby for collecting cars, and although he doesn't discuss it loads in the public eye, he is a big enthusiast. He certainly has a big collection though, with a wide variety of cars as he owns; McLaren F1, Rolls-Royce Phantom, Bentley Arnage, Cadillac Eldorado, as well as a Pagani Zonda C12.
He even owns a Hummer H2 which, for some reason, he keeps a fish tank inside of, just because he can do.
3 Justin Bieber
Does it really surprise you that Justin Bieber has a massive car collection? Bieber is an incredibly successful and rich pop star, who hasn't wasted time building his collection of cars.
Even though he has been caught driving too fast and racing on the streets, he does seem to have matured in recent years, even though his brightly colored supercars may not give that feel to others. Bieber owns a Lamborghini Aventador, a Fisker Karma, and even a Cadillac CTS-V, which he themed to Batman, making it feel like his very own Batmobile.
2 Eric Clapton
Eric Clapton is a legendary name in the music world and is one of the greatest guitarists of all time in many people's opinion, but away from music, he is also a massive car enthusiast, particularly Ferraris.
Clapton is well known for purchasing some old-school and rare Ferraris, including the SP12 EC, which is a very unique model that cost him a reported fee of £3 million, with the car being based on the 458 Italia. He owns various other Ferraris too, with Clapton being rather particular with his brand choice, owning some of the very best cars in the world.
One of the biggest names in modern music, Jay-Z, of course, has a wide and impressive car collection, owning some of the rarest vehicles ever made, spending his incredible net worth on amazing luxury cars for himself and his family.
Jaz-Z owns tons of vehicles, having one of the biggest collections in the music industry, from his Jeep Wrangler to an Alfa Romeo Spyder, he has shown a wide and varied taste in cars with his choices. Jay-Z also thinks about the environment too, owning a Tesla Model S, but he also owns one of the most expensive cars in the world with the Maybach Exelero, which set him back a reported $8 million.
