Ludacris Buys Stunning Hollwyood Hills Mansion

Ludacris Hollywood Hills Casa
Every now and then I come across a house that gives me the chills and makes my heart skip a beat. And rapper Ludacris' (Christopher Brian Bridges) new Hollywood Hills home definitely falls into that category. I'm in love.

Though Matthew Perry's modern villa and Calvin Harris' contemporary house, both located in the Hollywood Hills, have long been my two of my favorites, I think they just got bumped down from the top spots. I'm obviously a fan of modern architecture.

Video Tour of Nick Jonas' Los Angeles Home

Nick Jonas Los Angeles Casa
On October 29, 2013, The Jonas Brothers announced that they had split, but that doesn't mean that they're disappearing from the limelight anytime soon.

In fact younger brother, Nick, has appeared on 'Hawaii Five-O', is dating former Miss Universe Olivia Culpo...and he's recently purchased a pretty decent home in Los Angeles.

The house, which is located on a cul-de-sac above the Sunset Strip, was originally listed with an asking price of $3,499,000. But Mr. Jonas purchased the place for $3.2 million. That's a nice bargain.

Chris Brown Lists His Hollywood Hills Casa

Chris Brown Hollywood Hills Villa
Chris Brown hasn't been the most popular neighbor, and I'm sure the residents in the neighborhood are happy to see that the rapper listed his Hollywood Hills home for sale.

First, the rapper moved out from his West Hollywood condo after neighbors complaining about his wild parties. And then in May this year, Mr. Brown was ordered to remove the murals he had painted outside his Hollywood Hills property after several complaints from his neighbors.

The only difference between the two of us
was that I didn't know what or where home was.”

Madonna Sold Beverly Hills Mansion

Madonna's Beverly Hills Estate
Back in May, 2012, Madonna listed her huge Beverly Hills Mansion for sale. And after over a year on the market, she finally found a buyer for the property.

According to public records, the 1.25-acre estate was sold for $19.5 million, 3 million less than the original asking price of $22.5M. But it still seems like Madonna made quite a profit on the home, as she purchased it back in 2003 for $12 million.

The 9-bedroom, 15-bath home was built in 1912, but has undergone extensive remodeling. Sadly there are no interior pictures available, but you can read more about Madonna's (now former) Beverly Hills property here icon(sponsored link).
