Hitting the town with your besties can DEF be a night to remember, but, let’s get real, kicking off your shoes and having a lazy night in trumps a next-day hangover. Recently, many celebs have spoken out about how they rather go home than go hard. From Anna Kendrick to Zac Efron, we rounded up eight famous homebodies.
While Rihanna may be known for being a party animal, she recently revealed that she’s soooo over going out (for now). RiRi said, “Recently I’ve become a square. I hate partying. I don’t know if it’s my heels — I don’t like standing up in my heels for hours. I don’t know if it’s that, but I’ve been so bored of it. … I am such a bootleg rock star. I do nothing, literally.” Ain’t nothing wrong with that.
+ Zac Efron
The muscles, the hair, the talent: AHHHH … could Zac Efron be more perfect? Well, my future hubby reportedly did a recent stint in rehab, but by the looks of things he is changing his ways. Zac may not being staying HOME per say, but the actor just returned back from Peru with his father and Tweeted, “Hey guys! Just returned from an incredible trip to Peru with my dad and wanted to thank you all for your support these past few weeks…means the world to me. Love you guys!” My advice: Call me up and I’ll host a movie night, Efron!
+ Demi Lovato
Demi Lovato has been quite vocal about leaving the bar scene in her past. When she isn’t judging on “X Factor,” or making fabulous music (LOVE HER NEW ALBUM), the singer has been spending time making a big diff. Many of us who turn 21 celebrate with finally legal drinks and hate life the next day, but Demi did it a much better way! She flew all the way to Africa for a volunteer trip to celebrate her big day. Now THAT is maj!
+ Jennifer Lawrence
Last year, Jennifer Lawrence skyrocketed to fame after the release of her highly anticipated movie “The Hunger Games.” After that, her life was forever changed. She soon became one of the most recognized faces coast to coast. So it wasn’t that surprising when J.Law opened up about being a homebody. I mean, I would imagine that if I were in her shoes life would be a bit overwhelming at times. She revealed: ”When I’m out, I think about my couch. Like, ‘It would be awesome to be on it right now. I bet there’s an episode of “Dance Moms” on. Am I missing a new episode of “Keeping Up with the Kardashians”?’ At the end of the day there’s probably nothing that makes me feel better than junk food and reality TV.”
+ Blake Lively
Blake Lively: the wife we all envy. Well, many of us, anyway. I mean, HELLO, the lovely actress is married to the one and only Ryan Reynolds. If I were , I DEF wouldn’t want to go out to the bars either. A nice movie with mister Ryan Reynolds would suffice. She told Allure, “I don’t drink. I’ve never tried a drug. It’s just something that I genuinely don’t have a desire for.”
+ Anna Kendrick
Anna Kendrick may glam it up on the red carpet, but when it comes to her home, she is all about the sweats! Anna explains, ”I’m just boring. I like sweatpants and staying home.” While Karl Lagerfield may disagree with Anna’s choice of pants, I’m feeling her on this! Being a homebody isn’t such a bad thing, y’all.
+ Britney Spears
Brit Brit is on F-I-R-E these days and I couldn’t be happier. Although she’s been a ”Work Bitch” in the recording studio lately, we all know that Queen Brit loves to kick it casual and spend her off days relaxing at home. She stated, “I’m really just a boring homebody who loves staying home with my kids and that’s where I’m the happiest.”
Eminem is slowly stepping back into the spotlight, as he has been working hard on his upcoming album, The Marshall Mathers LP 2, out in November. The rapper has laid low regarding his public life these past few years, and he kicked his drug habit. Eminem opened up about his addiction to prescription drugs, saying: “I just couldn’t believe that anybody could be naturally happy or naturally function or be just enjoying life in general without being on something. So I would say to anybody, ‘It does get better.’”
While partying can be fun, it’s important to keep a balance in your life. Substances like alcohol can become a very serious issue and, according to our friends at DoSomething.org, “Teens who start drinking before age 15 are five times more likely to develop alcohol dependence or abuse later in life than those who begin drinking at or after the legal age of 21.”
So it’s all good if you want to take a backseat when it comes to going out. Clearly, you’re not alone. Even Miley doesn’t party hard on Saturday nights. … Welp, at least not this Saturday night. And we’ll happily be on the sofa watching her then.
