Adam Lambert depends on his voice for his liveliness, so what would happen to him - and his bank account - if that voice suddenly goes way? The "American Idol" finalist isn't about to wait around and find out: He reportedly insured his voice for about $45 million, according to the U.K. Sunday Mirror.
"Insurance for stars is a big deal in the US and Adam's voice is his bacon. He had it insured last week," the tabloid reported.
Lambert hasn't commented on whether or not it's true. It wouldn't be that strange, though: Plenty of celebs have insured various appendages over the years.
Millions of women would kill to have a round behind like Jennifer Lopez's. The singer and actress is completely aware of her rear power - she reportedly insured her body for a hefty sum back in the late '90s. Lopez always tried to deny it, though.
"The craziest," she told BeatBoxBetty.com in 2000, "was the Billion Dollar Butt [policy[. It was on the front page of the paper, here in New York. I happened to be in New York that week. It was funny."
She denies it, though her rep never really did. "At this time we cannot confirm or deny this information," the flack said at the time.
Is it true? Who knows.
You'd think Mariah Carey would insure her voice, right? Wrong: The singer reportedly insured her long legs for $1 billion in 2006 after signing on as a spokeswoman for Gillette's "Legs of a Goddess" campaign.
"The sum reflects her popularity. She's about to start a U.S. tour and she'll have to be careful," The Daily Mirror said at the time.
We can understand insuring a voice or a body part. But, hair? That's apparently what singer and ladies man Tom Jones did back in 2006.
Jones tried to deny that the $7 million policy was real, but Lloyd's of London underwriter John Thomas confirmed it was true. The insurance company is known to write these policies and even comments about it on their website.
"Admittedly, this is one of the most obscure requests I've had - but I still came up with a wording that addressed the need," Thomas said in 2006.
Which body part would you insure if given the opportunity - and why?
