Hey, MTV, just a thought…even though Teen Wolf and Awkward are solidly great watches (do yourself a favor and check them out…you’re welcome), maybe it’s time that you start banking on your early-aught heritage and bring back Cribs.
Sure, there are websites, magazines, and books dedicated to the subject of celebrity homes, filled with photos of the prim and set dog-earred for future dream-home inspiration (Jayne Mansfield's bathtub being of particular interest ). But you know what you won’t be finding in Martha Stewart Living? A beautiful lineup of overly-priced and tricked-out cars casually arranged outside the garage, "Genie in a Bottle" rec rooms, and random friends hanging out watching television while a professional camera crew rolls through. And what of the immaculate refrigerator interiors clearly sponsored by the Coca-Cola Corporation?
While MTV gets their act together (please, more like Mariah Carey’s apartment—that closet…), a good way to satiate your need for new Cribs is by picking up the latest copy of Elle Décor and playing some throwback Good Charlotte in the background. But for now, a collection of 100 of our favorite celeb homes—from the vaults of vintage Hollywood and MTV to the glossy architecture mags of today.
