But then again, you really can’t blame these celebrities for their unconventional actions if they have the bucks to back it up. Besides, some of them do have a reasonable reason as to why they did it in the first place. So if you’re wondering which celebrity insured which body part, then check out our star-studded list!
MARIAH CAREY – LEGS & VOICE
Famed for her unique whistling talent while hitting those very high notes, Mariah Carey became one of the American music industry’s most unforgettable musicians. Her singing abilities were so out of this world that the Guinness Book of World Records even dubbed her as the Songbird Supreme. Mariah Carey had dozens of chart-topping hits, especially on the Billboards, throughout her career. This success made her one of the best-selling music artists of all time and cemented herself along the lines of Michael Jackson in history.
It’s no wonder that she placed an insurance policy on that angelic voice of hers and her legs— thanks to the Legs of a Goddess campaign. To date, her voice and legs cost a mind-blowing $35 million, and since she has not announced her retirement from the music industry yet, we believe that she will continue her path and make her voice and legs worth much more.
RIHANNA – LEGS
Robyn Rihanna Fenty, more popularly known as just Rihanna or Riri in the music industry, is Barbadian-born and bred. She became a hit in the American scene after artfully combing R.N.B. music with a Caribbean flair through her two albums, Music of the Sun and A Girl Like Me, in the early 2000s. Riri has 9 Grammy awards to boast about, along with dozens of other famous awards. Thanks to her successful music career and her Fenty Beauty cosmetics brand, Rihanna flew to the top as the wealthiest female musician.
Despite her $600 million net worth, Rihanna only got a $1 million insurance policy on her legs. However, even though it’s a much smaller price compared to her net worth, we still can’t deny that her legs are worth so much more than the ordinary person’s health coverage. Funny enough, the decision came after Gillette awarded her the Venus Breeze Celebrity award for their Legs of a Goddess campaign.
TINA TURNER – LEGS
If you haven’t heard the famous Proud Mary song, then you’re missing a lot. It was sung by none other than the Queen of Rock N Roll herself, Tina Turner, which garnered a Grammy award.

It was during his time with Ferrari, where the famous thumb insurance policy-signing happened. Surprisingly, it was part of his contract with the world-class car brand, which amounted to $13.3 million. Now that’s a big thumbs up from us.

MERV HUGHES – MOUSTACHE
Mervyn Gregory Hughes, or more commonly known as Merv and gained the nickname “Fruitfly” in the sports world, is an Aussie credited for his amazing cricket playing milestones.

It was during his historic win in the WACA Ground during 1988 where his international sporting career took flight. However, more than his cricket moves, Merv was also famous for his unique mustache, which became a trademark for the cricket star.
The athlete eventually had his facial hair insured for a “humble” cost of $775,000 during the height of his career. People often say that you can tell it’s Merv playing even from a distance thanks to his horseshoe-shaped mustache. It’s a good thing that he decided to shave it that way.
