Beyoncé feat. Jay Z, "Upgrade U"

Who cares if she's in a swamp? Beyoncé is still getting down in a diamond-encrusted corset. And her pet alligator also has a golden chain. Aaaand she upgrades herself to belting in Rolls Royces, rolling in a garden of gold jewelry, and chewing on diamonds. Extravagance, indeed.

Christina Aguilera, Pink, Lil' Kim & Mya, "Lady Marmalade"

This video automatically makes the list if just for Xtina's hair. But with each woman rocking an over-the-top look and attitude—never mind them paying dust to their ladies in waiting—this is indulgence anyone can recognize.

3 / 14

50 Cent, "P.I.M.P."

50 Cent made kids around the world aspire to be a motherf-ckin' P.I.M.P. if this was the lifestyle they were promised.

4 / 14

Rihanna, "Pour It Up"

What else would Rihanna wear to make it rain other than a diamond-encrusted bra, denim thong, and fur jacket?

5 / 14

Gwen Stefani, "Sweet Escape"

The storyline goes that Gwen and her Harajuku girls are itching to get out of their prison, but when your holding cell is literally solid gold (with golden free weights, gold-threaded bed sheets and gold handcuffs), we see no reason to leave.

6 / 14

Michael Jackson, "Remember the Time"

MJ went back in time for "Remember the Time," creating an ancient Egyptian world where he was the dancing prince shaking things up and causing trouble for Pharaoh Eddie Murphy. 

7 / 14

Iggy Azalea, "Change Your Life"

Just your regular Vegas showgirl with a pet baby white tiger.

8 / 14

Fergie, "Fergalicious"

A video all about a singer's name based around a Candy Land–esque world? 2006 was a weird time, but this visual is truly delicious.

9 / 14

Lil Dicky feat. Fetty Wap & Rich Homie Quan, "$ave Dat Money"

A different take on your extravagant rap video, Lil Dicky's visual sees the rapper-comedian trying to create "the most epic rap video for no money." He does a pretty good job by finding ways to film in a mansion, rent a Lamborghini and getting touchy with a sexy video vixen on a yacht.

10 / 14

Lady Gaga, "G.U.Y. (An Artpop Film)"

A nearly 12-minute mini-film that casts the stars of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills as Gaga's gang of secret agents? How could this not be one of the most decadent videos ever?

11 / 14

Mariah Carey & Snoop Dogg, "Say Somethin'"

In a video that probably isn't too different from her actual life, Mimi takes on Paris to shop at the most luxurious retailers, run away from the paparazzi and hang in a mansion with her puppy.

12 / 14

Rainbow Blaxx, "Cha Cha"

We'd love to live in a world where we can hang around in our underwear and be surrounded with indulgent desserts while our servants gave us pedicures.

13 / 14

Brooke Candy, "Opulence"

The song's title should say enough, but amid all the diamond-encrusted outfits, this might take the cake for most opulent pop video ever?

14 / 14

Madonna, "Material Girl"

How could we not end things with the Material Girl herself paying homage to Hollywood's most extravagant star ever?
