Jennifer Hudson — American Idol finalist, Academy Award winner, Grammy Award winner, Weight Watchers guru — and renter of some very, very beautiful property. A rental unit that was last occupied by the multi-talented star at the Apthorp at 2211 Broadway has hit the market asking $21,000-a-month, and judging from the photos it might actually be worth the price.

Tommy Hilfiger knows when to have a sale. The designer — who just published a book about his brand called “American Icon” — has chopped the price of his penthouse at the Plaza from $80 million to $58.9 million, more than a 25% drop.

Academy Award-winning director Danny Boyle has listed a light-filled apartment in Chelsea for $2.15 million, according to StreetEasy records. Well, to be completely precise, the apartment is actually in his daughter, Caitlin’s, name. Boyle senior bought it in 2010 for $1.705 million and transferred it to her in 2014.

Justin Bieber is crazy for European real estate right now. First he was renting a $133K-per-month London mansion, and now, he’s reportedly dropped a cool €24.5 million (roughly $27 million) on a luxury penthouse in Amsterdam.

Legendary editors Tina Brown and Sir Harold Evans are downsizing — their real estate holdings, that is. The publishing powerhouse couple just paid $2,351,250 for a co-op apartment at 2 Beekman Place, which is significantly smaller than their former triplex at 447 East 57th Street.

Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie may have only just announced their intention to separate from each other this September, but the former couple has been trying to part with their New Orleans home in the French Quarter since November last year. Finally, according to the AP, they are successful: the home sold last week for $4.9 million, significantly less than its original price of $5.65 million.
