I don't get it—I keep reading reports that Lindsay Lohan and Britney Spears are broke or getting near it. If that is so, how do they keep spending money like there is no tomorrow? How do these celebrities keep spending when they are not working?

Well, it's a multitiered process. First, Britney has to ooze out of her compound and announce to her stable of paparazzi that's she hot, y'all. Then she has to make sure there's at least one shady guy in a baseball cap ready to hold her black card.
And then she has to bleat orders to the hinky guy to take her shopping before she disintegrates into a volcanic mass of trap grease and brightly colored synthetic fiber. Spending a reported $16,000 a month in clothes—it's a complicated affair.
