Divas are a special breed blessed with angelic looks, an alluring voice and an ability to look stunning no matter what the occasion. They are able to get what they what no matter how ridiculous the request. Whenever they have to leave their mansions, money is no object when it comes to looking like a goddess. And this of course applies to their cars, too. When you have everything but want to travel in a vehicle that best represents your greatness, what cars do divas actually go for?

Mrs Material Girl is one of the biggest stars stretching over three decades, and she’s officially the most successful female solo artist of all time – last year she was the top earner in Hollywood. Renowned for her scandalous performances exploring religious symbolism and sexual themes, she rocketed to fame and achieved 21 Top 10 hits and sold over 70 million albums worldwide.

Forbes has her listed as the planet’s wealthiest female musician. Madonna is also very versatile, being in film and also penning adult and child books. With many houses and mansions and a love of the countryside, just what does the original material girl drive?

Madonna owns two Germans, one a BMW 7-Series powered by 4.4-L V8 engine that produces 333-bhp, and two, an Audi A8 that also possesses a big V8 engine. Perhaps these two big Germans are used as inconspicuous dailies?

The fact Madonna owns a Mini Cooper S just proves it’s a classless car. Apparently she loves this small car, as it’s convenient in the busy modern city.

Now this is the one pictured, an ultra luxurious $416,000 Maybach 57. Powered by a massive 6.0-L V12 engine, its 620-bhp and 664 lb-ft of torque rocket this enormous car to 62-mph in 5 seconds.

With her distinct voice and the sexiness that oozes from her every pore, Rihanna found fame at the tender age of 18. After winning a singing contest with her rendition of Mariah Carey’s “Hero”, the young Diva quickly entered the top 20 of the pop stars heading the charts. Since 2005 she has sold 25 million albums worldwide, and aside from music, her exotic looks have grabbed the attention of brands such as Gucci, Armani Jeans, and cosmetic and skin care products for Nivea.

When it comes to cars, Rihanna has all bases covered. She owns a Chevrolet Suburban LTZ, a giant SUV powered by a 352-bhp 6.0-L V8 engine. For a sportier ride, the singer also owns Porsche 911 (Type 997) turbo. This model boasts 480-bhp, powering it to 62-mph in just 3.9 seconds.

Lady GaGa

Lady Gaga is by far the most eccentric personality in Hollywood… and that’s saying something! After her debut album The Fame (2008), which received critical and commercial success, Lady Gaga topped the charts. Now on her third release, Born This Way, which sold 1,108,000 copies in its first week, GaGa has proven her music combined with her eccentric style is a winning formulae.

So what does a woman who wears a dress made from meat choose to drive?

Lady Gaga is often spotted driving her black Lincoln MKZ, a car renowned for its luxury. Sporting a powerful V6 engine and available in AWD, this big car handles well whilst offering a retro-interior and a truly luxurious ride.

Known for her unique styles, the singer also owns a Chevrolet Suburban. Despite its enormous presence, it can hit 60-mph in less than 9 seconds. Adding to the SUV, she also has a Mercedes GL-Class.

At the other end of the spectrum, the true eccentric has a Porsche Panamera S tucked away in her garage, along with a silver Audi R8.

I’ve saved this car last as I think it reflects GaGa’s personality best. This lovely red Rolls Royce Corniche III is the perfect ride to match that extravagant personality. The engine management system has been switched to a modern MK-Motronic system. This timeless Roller was showcased at the Frankfurt Motor Show in 1989 and since been a favourite among the elite.

Mariah Carey

Easily the biggest diva here, this goddess of style and sexiness has a voice unmatched by anyone. Her 5-octave range and her ability to hit notes so high only dogs can hear them, Mariah Carey has been at the top of her game since the 90s. Apart from topping the charts, this diva is a record producer, a music video director and an actress. Her record sales to date exceed 160 million albums worldwide, passing Elvis Presley.

It’s hard to believe she owns any cars that she drives herself, but she does, and she has a few.

The queen of divas obviously requires maximum comfort and luxury, and it doesn’t come any more opulent than two Rolls Royce Phantoms. Not happy with the one, Mariah Carey also owns a custom black Rolls Royce Phantom Drophead Coupe.

Just in case the Rollers are in the shop being serviced, Carey has a Maybach 62, a car renowned for its luxury and gorgeous detailed styling.

With blacked out taillights, this Mercedes SLK looks fearsome… until you open the doors and see the pink “M’s” embroidered on the headrests. The small car comes with an enormous 5.4L, V8 DOHC engine with 7-speed automatic transmission.

Mariah’s husband Nick Cannon bought her this Porsche Cayenne as a 40th birthday present. Petty in pink, it’s hard to believe the songstress is in her 40s.

Beyonce’s career has been a rollercoaster of music and awards, making her one of the most popular and significant musical inspirations for contemporary artists. Her awards include: Legend award in 2008, Artist of the Decade in 2009, Billboard Millennium Award in 2011, 2 Golden Globe nominations and total 16 Grammy awards. The 30-year-old beauty is also married to rapper and producer Jay Z, and the two of them together make a classy and stylish couple.

Beyonce owns a Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren, a car boasting a supercharged V8 engine capable of 626-bhp. Not only does she stop traffic with her looks, this beast stops due to its massive high performance ceramic brakes. Should she ever feel the need, 207-mph is achievable and 60-mph comes in 3.6 seconds.

Maybe I’m a sucker for classic cars, but I feel this next car takes precedence over the SLR due to its originality among the usual Hollywood fleet. Despite its age, this stunningly grand Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud II offers style with a solid performance. It also boasts a comfy interior along with a spectacular exterior, making it the ideal car to transport a diva. With a 6.2-L Rolls Royce V8, this old-timer reaches 60-mph in respectable 10.9 seconds.

Katy Perry

Katy Perry has been voted world’s sexiest woman, and along with her catchy hits like “I Kissed A Girl” and “California Gurls”, this pop singing sensation certainly lives up to her over-the-top reputation. Perry’s second multi-platinum hit “Hot N Cold” was followed by other hits like “Thinking of You” and “Waking Up in Vegas”.

So what cars do it for the world’s sexiest woman?

This is one car that surprised me, a pink Smart car sitting on 14” Black and Pink rims. But I guess it suits Katy Perry well. The two-seater Smart car is considered a cool and fun ride and is chosen by lots of celebrities. Although a slow car, this particular one accelerates faster and takes 5.5 seconds to reach 37-mph.

Katy must’ve have been wearing her sensible hat when she bought this next car. The Audi A5 sport back is a classy, reliable and luxurious car, and sitting on 18” rims, it adds a touch of flare to the sophisticated and elegant ride.

Celine Dion

This French-Canadian superstar certainly knows how to invest money. From her many mansions and golf course to her private jet and French estate, this singer has risen from humble beginnings to being one of the world’s top earning musicians. The diva is also known for performing sell-out shows at the Colosseum theatre at Caesar’s Palace for an impressive five years running. Oscar winner Dion has more than made her money in the music, but aside from singing, her other accomplishments include her franchise restaurant chain, Nickel Restaurants and her love for golf, of which she is famed as one of the top celebrity golfers.

Nothing but class will do for this diva, so Celine Dion has chosen this Bill Allen designed Royal Royce Corniche. This convertible beauty sports an ample powered engine, enough to glide you along on a cushion of luxury and comfort.
