“Cribs” is a classic staple of MTV programming. It just doesn’t get more intimate than taking a tour of your favorite celebrities’ homes, especially when they open their door to the master bedroom. (Someone still needs to come up with an intro more original than “This is where the magic happens.”)
It was shocking enough when the show first aired and gave us a glimpse of ocean-size grottos and parking lots overflowing with Porches. But then “Teen Cribs” came along and made us REALLY seethe with envy over the sick pads of regular ol’ high school students (well, the kind with really rich parents.)
In celebration of the four new episodes of “Teen Cribs” airing this Sunday at 11/10c, we combed through the celeb archive and picked the places we’d most like to crash at (and never leave). Check out our Top 6, then tell us whether you agree with our choices!
6. PRO SURFER JOHN JOHN FLORENCE
This kid’s digs were totally no frills (he shared a room with his three little bros!), but we’re suckers for a beautiful ocean view — especially if the water’s like 50 feet from your doorstep.
Coolest Amenity: Outdoor shower.
5. ZAC, ISAAC AND TAYLOR HANSON
Bigger isn’t always better, and the Hanson brothers proved it when they invited us all into their Manhattan loft (which is still enormous in terms of New York apartment living). Between the colorful rugs, modern candelabra and antique sofas, these guys sure showed off some stellar decorating style.
Coolest Amenity: 18th-century French dining table.
4. OMARION, J-BOOG AND MARQUES HOUSTON
Hands down, our favorite thing about this house was the black-and-white portrait of Prince. In fact, that might be the only reason the boys from B2K made the list.
Coolest Amenity: A tie for second place between the lambskin linens and Batman rug.
Bonus: Check out Omarion’s private crib in the video below.
3. LIL MAMA
Guess what? Lil Mama may not know how to dress herself in anything besides bird feathers and sequins stewardess hats, but her living quarters were actually quite sophisticated! We also like that she keeps Fruity Pebbles on hand.
Coolest Amenity: It’s four floors!
Bonus: Check out Lil Mama’s episode in the video below.
2. AARON CARTER
As Michael Kors would say, the taste level was lacking (a safari bed?) at the Carter Compound. But we were more interested in the toys parked outside. Before he was legally able to drive, the infamous pop singer owned four sweet cars and two yachts!
Coolest Amenity: Music studio. (Wonder what he’s doing with it now?)
1. BOW WOW
From the plush couches to the junk food in the fridge to grams chillin’ on the back porch, the young rapper’s Atlanta abode had a really comfy vibe. And we’d never EVER seen that many sneakers.
Coolest Amenity: The Game Room (Ms. Pacman!)
Bonus: Check out Bow Wow’s Miami crib in the video below.
