Most of us like to party, right? And we all have our own stories to tell about nights that went way too far: hours that we lost, hazy memories that are never quite right and very often terrible photos that our “friends” take of us when we aren’t exactly looking our best. But then again, we are normal people and our trashy pictures don’t really go viral (hopefully) and don’t stay in people’s recall for long, in any case. Regular people have the luxury of partying hard without having to worry too much about the consequences.
Now celebs partying hard is another story altogether. I am sure we can all agree that while celebrities too are flesh and blood mortals with their own likes, dislikes, and fallacies, but when they get out of hand and behave less than stellar, well, it goes down in viral history. And what goes up on the internet stays on the Internet. So we won’t mention the really crazy celebs that literally live in clubs. Here we are just talking about the celebs who aren’t really lushes per se, and successful in their own way, but they do like to party and party hard. And when they party, they invariably end up sprawled on the floor and splashed all over gossip columns. But some of them may well be on the road to needing intervention and cranking down the party levels a tad as well. But are they listening? Here are 15 photos that make us feel embarrassed for these crazy partying celebs.
15 Lindsay Lohan Can Barely Stand
I think no one is surprised anymore to see photos like this anymore, especially considering Lindsay Lohan's partying levels are on par with Charlie Sheen. And no, we didn’t mean that as a compliment. Her DUI arrests and diva behavior effectively ended her career but did that mean she saw the light? Hardly! Oprah Winfrey, god bless that woman, tried to lend Lohan a helping hand by kickstarting her docu-series on the Oprah Winfrey Network, which was meant to chronicle Lohan’s road towards sobriety. Except that Lindsay Lohan here got wasted at the premiere party itself! Awkward. The production remained troubled due to her drinking and other antics and so Oprah cut her losses and pulled the plug. Videos of Lohan scuffling with her Russian boyfriend didn’t set her back one bit either. And now, she’s part-owner of a Greek nightclub – a recipe for disaster.
14 Britney Spears Is Having A Moment
Need we talk about how badly and obviously out of it Britney Spears is in this photo, especially considering she's with Paris Hilton? Because while the world must have noticed, she is oblivious to everything. And frankly, this is but one photo of a partying Britney. And it’s not even the most infamous green dress one. Remember the green dress that simply wouldn’t stay on? While everyone around must have noticed the slip, Britney herself remained oblivious to the cold air and the hot stares – long enough for her to get photographed that way before she finally righted things. Unfortunately for Britney, she’s not had a lot of success partying with friends – or with friends, period! Her past exploits have also meant that she was surrounded by phonies who photographed her at her worst and shared it with the world to see and troll. She seems to have pulled her act together – but it's still a wait and watch.
13 Cara Delevingne Is Having Too Much Of A Good Time
We think Cara Delevingne is wasting her money renting out an apartment, or even owning one. She should just sublet considering she is never home and always at a party, invariably passed out on a couch somewhere that’s not her home. With so many celebrity friends on her speed dial, it’s no surprise that she is never home. Her party mates are equally rad. Think Kendall Jenner, Jourdan Dunn, Rihanna, Daisy Lowe, Suki Waterhouse, Kate Hudson and Taylor Swift, her bestie. In 2016, pictures of a scantily clad Delevingne sprawled across the floor with designer Jonathan Saunders on top of her went viral. While she is firmly out of the closet, this was not romantic – merely a public display of wild behavior. Did it hurt her “image?” Hardly, for she just appeared in Suic*de Squad opposite Jared Leto, Margot Robbie, and Will Smith, and also in Luc Besson’s movie Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets. In Hollywood, it’s always a thumb up for a bottoms up!
12 Johnny Depp Is Once Again Out Of It
Sounds a tad mean but if the cast and crew of the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise are to be believed, the rum-loving skirt-chasing captain Jack Sparrow is an alter-ego of Johnny Depp. When a visibly out of it Johnny Depp stumbled through his presenting duties at the 2014 Hollywood Film Awards, everyone laughed it off as high spirits. His past of smashing up hotel rooms notwithstanding, he seemed a rather stable dude to be around. But then he left his longtime partner Vanessa Paradis for Amber Heard – and soon his drunkenness stopped being funny. A messy divorce amidst accusations of alleged abuse was settled after a video of his drunken and violent behavior was conveniently released, as were Heard’s pictures of a beaten up face. The divorce ended in a settlement and Disney still stands by him but Depp really needs to pull his act together lest he too is “outed,” as is the current trend. The picture shows a very inebriated, support-needing Depp at a London film premiere.
11 Rihanna’s Bizarre Calypso Dance
Rihanna loves her homeland, Barbados. So when she decided to attend the yearly harvest festival in her country, Crop Over, she didn’t realize that she’d end up being viral news. For Rihanna let it loose, dressed in skimpy attire and dancing away her dignity on all fours. The photo is from the Foreday Morning Jam party, which is a celebration that begins at midnight and ends at 6 AM. The Bajan singer admits that she woke up still wearing the face paint and the veil from the morning before because she was too out of it to do anything but flop into bed. However, with a bod like that – even drunken and tipsy – she still looked like a million bucks. And she enjoyed the party, so who cares what the media says...
10 Selena Gomez Got Crazy With Orlando Bloom
Barely had Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom become an item that pictures of him and a wild Selena Gomez emerged, taken in an LA nightclub. The media had a field day with cheating stories but the fact is that Selena and Orlando have been friends way before he hooked up with Katy Perry. Plus Selena’s ex, a.k.a. the omnipresent Justin Bieber, also hooked up with Orlando’s ex Miranda Kerr, which made Orlando punch Bieber, but that’s a whole other story! Katy Perry brushed off any rumors and was seen all lovey-dovey with Orlando later, but we all know their relationship was perhaps never meant to be. That said, the picture makes Selena look heart-breakingly young and caught with a deer-in-the-headlights kind of expression. As far as Orlando is concerned, he looks a little less wild but a lot more threatening. We think the paparazzi here shot off some clicks and made a quick getaway, lest they too get knocked out.
9 Christina Aguilera Is No Longer Home
Once her X-tina phase poofed away, Christina Aguilera has been the very picture of rotund elegance since, except when she erred every now and then and got so wild that she had to be lugged out of the party and stuffed into the car. As out of it as she was, she still probably felt that she looked hot so she did throw a kiss or two to the paps or the to the rest of the party-goers – we aren’t sure. She was later trashed and trolled online, with naysayers haranguing her for having let her hair down with a kid at home. Then she was also arrested for public intoxication in 2011, and Pink couldn't help but crack a joke about the situation. She tweeted, "Out of myself, Britney, and Christina, didn't everyone think I was gonna be the troublemaker?" Christina even almost brought down a Christmas tree at a 2015 party but didn’t let the headlines get her down, despite very embarrassing pictures of her splashed all over.
8 Jennifer Lawrence Lets Loose
It wasn’t just the 2014 Oscars; Jennifer Lawrence tends to keel over on a regular basis when she’s trippy. The 2014 Oscar slip was because she met Brad Pitt and got super happy She was even more plastered in 2017 when a video of her working the pole at a club in Vienna while down to her bra went viral. But Jennifer Lawrence is no lush and she took the video and the subsequent trolling in her trademark straightforward style. She said on Facebook, “Look, nobody wants to be reminded that they tried to dance on a pole by the internet. It was one of my best friend's birthdays and I dropped my paranoia guard for one second to have fun. I'm not going to apologize; I had a BLAST that night. P.S. That's not a bra, it's an Alexander Wang top and I'm not gonna lie, I think my dancing's pretty good, even with no core strength." You go girl…
7 Shia LaBeouf’s Racist Diatribe
If you thought that getting racist drunk was only Mel Gibson’s style, think again. Meet jerk number two, Shia LaBeouf who took the cake this year when he was drunk and trying to beg for a cigarette from people. When no one gave him one, the ugly Shia emerged from the cocoon and went on a spittle-flecked verbal rampage. When told to leave the area, LaBeouf refused and became aggressive toward the officer. Well, yeah, what else would he do, right? When the officer attempted to place LaBeouf under arrest, he ran to a nearby hotel and was then arrested in the hotel lobby, where he continued his ugly verbal antics. Wow. LaBeouf was videotaped throwing invectives at his arresting officer and then even used racial slurs against an officer, saying he’d be going to hell because of the color of his skin. If that were not enough, he then accused the cops of being racist because “a black man arrested me for being white.” Of course, he has since then apologized, but how do you move past something like that? Here was his statement: "It is a new low. A low I hope is a bottom," he said. We hope so, too. His lawyer said he'll stay out of trouble because LaBeouf "simply won't drink," which won't be a problem because he's "not an alcoholic." Err, okay!
6 Mischa Barton’s Scary Eyes
So we've heard of people who can literally pop their eyeballs out of their eye sockets (not a sight for the faint-hearted!) – and it seems Mischa Barton is trying to do the same thing, except that she’s a far cry from stone cold sober. Oh man. Talk about being out of it! This is probably the time you could go up to Mischa and tell her that the moon was made of green cheese, and she'd want a bite, weight watching be darned. She also got defensive in her wild state, of course. When asked about her flipping out when partying, she flipped out even more and excused her behavior by saying that someone had spiked her drink. Sure, Mischa. If we had pictures of us looking like that, we’d be up to our elbows in excuses as well. Though for your sake, we hope you pull it together. Bug eyes on such a pretty face make for a rather cringe-worthy photo…
5 The Many Faces Of Matthew McConaughey
As of now, Matthew McConaughey is a model citizen and working hard to make sure his Hollywood success streak remains at an all-time high. But once upon a time, he was living it up in Nicaragua, getting wild and looking for missing flip-flops in a ditch. And so the mighty fall again, mostly in a stupor. We understand that partying may make you lose a scarf, or a friend, or a ride, or even your wits. But your shoe? You have to be pretty out of it to do that! He must’ve woken up with one of the worst hangovers in the history of hangovers so, for his sake, we so hope that party was worth it. No point in ticking off his lovely wife, Brazilian model Camila Alves. He was also man enough to own up and said, “Nicaragua is a beautiful place, epic waves, the best surfing I have ever been on. And yes, I’m STILL looking for my flip-flop. So if anyone finds it floating around down there (it has 6:22 stitched into the side), please send it my way. There is a reward!”
4 Selma Blair Took It Too Far
In 2016, Selma Blair had a little party all by herself on a plane, and right in the presence of her young son. Not too far from her Cruel Intentions days, right? It was reported that she had an emotional outburst while seated in first class and kept saying that an unnamed man beat her, burned her private parts, and didn’t let her eat or drink. Hysterical, she had to be taken off the flight on a stretcher before being bundled off to the hospital. Later she clarified, admitting that she had made a big mistake: "After a lovely trip with my son and his dad, I mixed alcohol with medication, and that caused me to black out and led me to say and do things that I deeply regret. My son was with his dad asleep with his headphones on, so there is that saving grace. I take this very seriously, and I apologize to all of the passengers and crew that I disturbed and am thankful to all of the people who helped me in the aftermath. I am a flawed human being who makes mistakes and am filled with shame over this incident. I am truly very sorry." This picture is of her completely out of it even before that, on that very vacation.
3 Madonna’s Onstage Trip
Madonna is certainly controversy’s favorite child. You wouldn't really expect her to get wild at a party like any other ordinary celeb, would you? You would? Nah, that’s too lame for her. She got crazy on stage at a 2016 concert in Melbourne, Australia. Her “performance” included her guzzling alcohol from a flask and then asking the audience if someone would be intimate with her. Umm, we don’t know if someone accompanied her back to the hotel, though. Then, she tried to ride a tricycle. Why? Well because she wanted to ride it we suppose. Don’t ask us; she’s Madonna. Unfortunately, she fell over. Now while she may seem like an ageless goddess of yore, she is ultimately very human and this outburst may have been her way of dealing with her only son moving in with his father and trashing her as a bad mother. Remember the show was called “Tears of a Clown” and what people thought as her being trippy was her being the best showman there is. And her Woman of The Year speech more than made up for such tripe.
2 Kiefer Sutherland Loves Partying Too Much
Which of Kiefer Sutherland’s party pictures should we have put up? The one in which he wrestles a Christmas tree? Or his multiple DUI arrests? His mugshots? Oh wait, how about the one in which he's completely tanked and shirtless for good measure. Sutherland has earned a reputation for being one of the biggest drinkers in Hollywood with four DUIs. Not cool at all. But Kiefer refuses to sober up: “One of the things I love to do is go out with my friends and tell stories and have a bunch of drinks. That's true. Having said that, I can also look back on my life and tell you very squarely that the only bad things that have ever happened to me in my life have been because I like to go to bars and have drinks with my friends. But at some point, I've made a decision, right or wrong, for myself that I would rather work really hard so I could still have some of those times then to just simply stop. That's a choice I've made and I live with that choice." It’s a miracle he hasn’t killed anybody. The guy won't let go of his partying, no matter how embarrassingly he behaves.
1 David Hasselhoff Is Completely Out Of It
In 2007, a video went viral that showed the great and mighty David Hasselhoff in a shirtless and completely compromised state, trying to eat a cheeseburger. Unfortunately, this was not at a restaurant. He was actually rolling about the floor of his hotel room and with his teenage daughter begging him to get help for his drinking. The Hoff manned up and admitted that he has been filmed by his daughter so that he could learn how and what he looked like in an inebriated state. He said, "I am a recovering alcoholic. Unfortunately, one evening I did have a brief relapse, but its part of recovery. Because of my honest and positive relationship with my daughters, who were concerned for my well being, there was a tape made that night to show me what I was like. I have seen the tape. I have learned from it and I am back on my game. I thank God for the love and concern of my daughters. The tape was never meant to become public but appears to have been obtained and released by my ex-wife. I hope that someone else will learn from the tape, as I have."
