Everyone has bad roommate stories. There are stories about people who could use a few lessons about personal hygiene, roomies who have no idea what the definition of “quiet” is, and those who are still basically babies but with voting and driving privileges. Then there are those stories that are so bad that you do not even want to discuss them. You just want to put them in the back of our mind and forget the incident ever happened.
If you had the opportunity to choose anyone for a roommate, you would probably choose a celebrity. In theory, it sounds like a dream come true to have a celebrity as a roommate. You could meet all of their famous friends, get the free swag that they did not want, hear insider gossip, and hopefully tag along to a red carpet premiere or two. It could be the makings of a sitcom, or a reality TV show, or at the very least, a great friendship.
However, there are some celebrities that you would never want to share a place with. Remember that celebrities are just like the rest of us. Celebs aren’t immune to bad etiquette, noise issues, and sharing problems just because they have starred in a few movies or they have written a chart-topping song. They could be like your last awful roommate–or worse. You would not want to get involved in a house share with any of these 10 celebrities.
10. Jessica Simpson
Everyone got a glimpse into what it would be like having Jessica Simpson as a roommate thanks to Newlyweds: Nick and Jessica, her reality TV show with then-husband Nick Lachey. You probably would not want Jessica doing the grocery shopping considering she did not get the difference between chicken and tuna. Plus, Jessica admits that she is not the cleanest person. She said that she doesn’t brush her teeth every day, but she uses a shirt or something else to wipe them down. If you were her roommate, you would not want to leave your robe, towel or dirty laundry in the bathroom. Ever.
9. Lindsay Lohan
Lindsay Lohan has had some trouble in last few years with the law. However, she seems to have had some issues with being a good roommate. Lindsay once shared an apartment with former That’s So Raven star Raven-Symone. Raven has said that Lindsay did pay her rent, but she was hardly ever there. Her clothes were there, but she wasn’t. It’s too bad that Lindsay’s clothes couldn’t help dust and vacuum the place. When Lindsay moved into other houses, she has had the cops called to her place in the middle of the night, so she wouldn’t be the best roomie if you want to have a good night’s sleep.
8. Matthew McConaughey
It may seem like it would be alright, alright, alright to have Matthew McConaughey as a roommate. You could work out and go on runs together, and help him prepare for his next movie role. However, it would be difficult if you aren’t a fan of bongo drums and staying up late in the night. Matthew plays the bongos and it has gotten him into trouble. He was arrested after a neighbor called the cops saying that he was being too loud in the middle of the night. The cops reportedly saw Matthew naked and playing the bongo drums from the window. When they entered the apartment, they found marijuana, a bong and a pipe. If it ever happened again, it would make a great roomie story, but it probably wouldn’t be worth all of the bongo drum playing.
Many people would probably not want to room with Kesha because they can just imagine all of the excess glitter they would have to be constantly cleaning up. You also would not want to be in any situation with Kesha where you would have to share a fridge. Kesha has been known to drink her own urine. She claimed that there were health benefits to chugging your own pee. Ick. You would not want to be in a situation where you cannot tell the difference between the “Tik Tok” singer’s urine and your orange juice. That is, if you would still be brave enough to actually use the fridge–and the toilet.
6. Miley Cyrus
If you take one quick look at Miley Cyrus’s Instagram account, it is enough evidence to show that it probably would not be the best idea to share a place with her. Yes, there would be some fun parties and interesting things always going on, but you would also have a lot of cleaning up to do. Miley has a habit of making wacky new craft projects. Just imagine all of the leftover glitter, jewels, beads and stickers. Plus, she has multiple dogs and a piglet that are apparently allowed free rein of her house. And sometimes she even draws on her pooches.
5. Justin Bieber
Justin Bieber has had a lot of trouble with his neighbors so just imagine what it would be like living with him. Remember how he allegedly egged his neighbor’s house and caused $20,000 worth of damage? If you had a disagreement with him over who used the last of the toilet paper, who knows what he would do to you. Plus, the cops are known to come to Justin’s house over noise complaints–and sometimes they come twice in one night. If you are the type of person who likes peace and quiet, Justin is not the best match for a roommate.
4. Gwyneth Paltrow
One of the biggest reasons you would not want to share a room with certain celebrities is because of their less-than-stellar house cleaning and hygiene. However, with Gwyneth Paltrow it is the opposite. Gwyneth has admitted to being a neat freak, just like her father apparently was. Gwyneth insists that all guests take their shoes off before they come in her house, and she is known for her pristine kitchen. Plus, there is the strong possibility that she would talk about the latest things from her health and lifestyle website, Goop. If you don’t like discussing kale, how to pee, juice cleanses and vagina steaming, things probably aren’t going to work out.
3. Megan Fox
Many people would consider it a dream come true to have a roommate who is half as gorgeous as Megan Fox. However, they should be aware that just because someone is stunning, it doesn’t mean that their hygiene habits are good. Megan has openly admitted that she is an awful person to live with. She says that she does not clean, and she throws her clothes anywhere when she takes them off. Another reason she would literally stink as a roommate? She has a bad habit of forgetting to flush the toilet–even after she has “pinched a loaf.” Ewww.
2. Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi
If you have seen just a few minutes of any episode of Jersey Shore, you will quickly realize that you would never want to sign a lease with anyone in the cast. Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi has even admitted that she was a slob. She has also revealed that she uses cat litter instead of regular face scrubs to get rid of dry skin and to keep her face feeling silky soft. Even if it is cat litter that has never been put in a litter box, do you really want someone getting that all over your bathroom sink? Cats make enough mess with it in the litter box, so you can only imagine where it would go if a person was using it in a tiny room.
1. Britney Spears
Britney Spears would be a great roommate if she told you stories about her ex-boyfriend Justin Timberlake and her Las Vegas residency. If you are looking for a neat and tidy roomie, you should probably look for someone other than Brit. In a lawsuit, Britney’s ex-bodyguard claimed she had terrible personal hygiene. He claimed she rarely bathed and brushed her teeth, and she would allegedly pick her nose. Britney has been photographed walking out of gas stations with no shoes on, so that alone would have many looking for other roomies. Just think about trying to get the floor clean after she tracked in all that gas station grime. Yuck.
