Where famous pop stars would live if they lived in metro Detroit

With a recent fake story that Rihanna was planning a move to Novi, we thought 'hmm, where would other pop stars live if they for some reason decided to move to Detroit?' We tackled the task of hypothesizing where the likes of Adele, Drake, and Miley would live, based solely on our pre-conceived and perhaps even bias and erroneous notions of areas in Metro Detroit, and boy was it fun. Let us know what you think or if you have any suggestions, and hey, you never know, maybe some of these stars will choose to be our neighbors.

Adele- Grosse Pointe
Adele already lives the secluded life in some giant mansion in the English countryside, so she would love a giant mansion that looks over the water in Grosse Pointe. Plus, the town is secluded enough from the rest of the city that Adele could have tons of downtime to make her next album. (Photo via YouTube)

Alessia Cara- Hamtramck
Hamtramck is super hip, y’all if you haven’t noticed. With tons of great dive bars and restaurant gems, it’s the perfect place for a new generation of youths to move to. Alessia Cara has that vibe going on so we can see her perfectly fitting in. (Photo via Wikipedia)

Ariana Grande- Rochester
Rochester is just filled with girls who like fruity drinks, right? Ariana Grande fits that model perfectly. See also: Selena Gomez, Demi Lovato, Meghan Trainor. (Photo via Instagram)

Bieber- West Side
Oh, Bieber. We don’t know what to do with you sometimes. After much discussion in the office, we decided that Bieber would tell everyone that he lived somewhere where he could have some street credit like the West Side, but he would actually live somewhere awful and Canadian like Sarnia. Goodbye, Beibs. (Photo via YouTube)

Carrie Underwood- Armada
Or anywhere in northern Macomb county like Richmond or Romeo. Carrie would have a big ole house out in the country where her dogs/cats/horses can run wild. (Photo via Wikipedia)

Ed Sheeran- Corktown
Corktown is full of Irish gingers who love to drink- just like Ed Sheeran! Okay, so he’s English, but close enough. This ginger would love all the bars and fantastic restaurants in Corktown. (Photo via Flickr, Eva Rinaldi Photography)

Elle King- Downriver
If you missed Elle King when she was in town this past January, then you missed out on her potty mouth/don’t give a fuck attitude that reminds us so much of Downriver. Grungy and dirty in the best way possible. Courtesy photo.

Lady Gaga- Ferndale
Yes, we all know that Ferndale is known as the gay neighborhood, but it also just seems a lot more progressive and welcoming than a lot of other neighborhoods and cities in metro Detroit. Gaga clearly loves the gay community (although most pop stars do), but Gaga is always willing to stand up for a fight, and she just seems so nice and warm. We think she would absolutely fit in living in cozy Ferndale. (Photo via Philip Nelson)

Haim- West Bloomfield
LA rock trio and sister act Haim are tall, have long middle-parted hair, and look like they walked out of an swanky Topshop at all times. Plus, their Jewish heritage helps, too. They would fit in nicely with West Bloomfield. (Photo via Wikimedia Commons)
