When you're as rich as Beyoncé, buying things probably gets a little samey. After all, you've already purchased everything you want, so nothing really strikes you as a must have because you already have it. Queen Bey decided to take things to the next level with her latest purchase, a 7,500sq. ft stone church in New Orleans.
According to TMZ, the church was listed at an impressive $850,000 and is over a 100 years old. It might have been her sister Solange who tipped Bey on to the real estate purchase, as she lives close by to the building. The church is no longer in use—the corrugation passed on, leaving it empty. It's not currently clear why the songstress has bought the church, whether she plans on reopening it as a place of worship or if she wants to turn it into a residence.
Maybe she's taking on the idea of a church in San Francisco that held a special service themed on the "Irreplaceable" singer herself, aiming to get women and young children into the place of worship. The service does sound pretty incredible as far as sermons go, with a reading of civil rights leader Ella Baker and of course, a plethora of Bey's greatest hits sung by the choir. "Listen," "Freedom," "Flaws and All," and "I Was Here," are just a few of the songs heard.
Considering Bey earned a reported $3 million for her Coachella performance alone this year, it's not surprising that she's thinking up ways to invest her cold hard cash. Now, the singer already owns some prime real estate, including a $135 million Bel Air Mansion which has four swimming pools, 11 bathrooms, and their very own helipad.
