In the midst of the ongoing drought crisis out West, California officials are advising the state's residents to let their lawns die; viewing landscaping as an improper waste of the state's severely diminished resources.
Some of California's celebrities, however -- accustomed to star treatment and red carpets -- appear unwilling to let their green carpets go.
Kim Kardashian & Kanye West
Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are among the California celebrities enduring a bit of drought-shaming at the hands of the media.
Here, Kimye's lush green lawn can be seen, surrounded by the brown, dry land of their neighbors' properties in Calabasas, California.
So, in the aftermath of the state's first ever restrictions on urban water usage, it appears the cheese stands alone.
Jennifer Lopez surrounds herself with green: money, shocking Versace dresses, performances outfits like the one seen here ... and landscaping, seemingly unaffected by the California drought.
Despite the sweeping water regulations imposed by California state officials this spring, Jenny's "block" remains green.
And though the state has only issued eight $100 fines and two $200 fines to water wasters up until this point, Lopez may soon face a much heftier fine if she wants to keep her lawn this way.
Gov. Jerry Brown is calling for legislators to enforce fines of up to $10,000 for residents and businesses that waste the most water, as California cities struggle to meet mandatory conservation targets.
Jessica Simpson is yet another star getting flack lately for the California home she shares with her husband and kids.
Here, an aerial view of Jessica Simpson's California mansion shows the discrepancies between the lawns of normal California residents and the lawns of California stars.
Let's just hope the "Sweet Kisses" singer has been giving that lawn sweet kisses of artificial grass, rather than local water.
Khloe Kardashian is yet another star, who may be spending a little too much time "Keeping Up with the Kardashians, and not enough time keeping up with California's new water restrictions.
Khloe Kardashian's California home looks green as ever. Much like other celebrity homes, her lawn is a rare spot of healthy green in a sea of dead, brown California land.
In fact, on July 29, 2015, the Las Virgenes Municipal Water District snapped this photo of sprinklers at Khloe's Calabasas home, running off onto the stone pathway that leads up to her door. During such an extreme drought, that sort of spillover is extremely frowned upon; and district records show that Khloe has received both a formal warning and a fine for such violations.
Rapper Dr. Dre may be smiling at this 2013 BET Experience performance, but California water regulators weren't smiling when they caught him blatantly violating the state's water conservation rules.
California's water conservation regulations stipulate both when and where the state's residents can aim their sprinklers. As such, residents cannot water vegetation on personal property in the middle of the day, and they cannot allow excess water to run off onto sidewalks.
This picture, taken by the Las Virgenes Municipal Water District on July 2, 2015, shows the sprinklers outside a Calabasas home owned by Dr. Dre, doing both.
Kylie Jenner, the youngest, and some would say trendiest sister on "Keeping Up with the Kardashians," dyed her hair green in September 2015. And the shade of her locks matched the shade of the grass on her property a little more than it should have.
This photo, taken by the Las Virgenes Municipal Water District on July 2, 2015, shows sprinklers on Kylie Jenner's 4,851-square-foot, $2.7 million Calabasas mansion over-spraying onto both the driveway and the sidewalk. District records show that Jenner has been both warned and fined for violations like these.
In California, when a water usage violation is discovered, the guilty party is first issued a written warning. If they do not stop, a $100 fine is then collected. However, with district records showing that hundreds of Jenner's Calabasas neighbors have been warned and fined for such violations, it appears that the figure of money instituted as a penalty may not be enough to deter California's wealthiest residents from doing what they want to do.
Barbra Streisand, the singer famous for her epic pipes, may be funneling too much California water through the landscaping pipes on her property.
Here, Streisand's waterfront California home can be seen seemingly unaffected by the extreme drought crisis, now in its fourth year in California.
After this and other aerial photographs surfaced on the web, however, Streisand's rep told The New York Post that the singer has "cut down her water usage by over 50 percent ... and she is going to take further steps to conserve water."
So now, if you catch Streisand's plants and pool reminiscing about "The Way We Were," you know why.
If you live in California and you really crave an expansive green lawn, the best option at the moment may be to an install an artificial one.
It's a water-saving alternative that's grown exponentially in popularity among California residents, now facing a mandatory 25 percent reduction in water use ordered by Gov. Jerry Brown.
Here, an employee of the Onelawn landscaping company installs a section of artificial lawn at a home in Burlingame, California, April 3, 2015.
Alternatively, you can always replace your lawn with something other than grass, that doesn't require water.
Here, a man rakes wood chips that he put down to replace his lawn in Los Angeles, May 11, 2015.
Or, like many of the state's farmers, you can install a drip system to water your lawn.
Here, drip irrigation waters a field of grape vines in Firebaugh, California.
So, who knows...
Maybe these California celebrities laid down plots of artificial grass around their properties, when we weren't looking. Maybe they've just installed killer drip systems.
With California's catastrophic drought entering its fourth year, though, we just really hope they're not using the state's drastically diminished water resources to pimp their mansions.
