In the rock n' roll era of the 1960s and 1970s, it was a given that the biggest stars were drunk and/or high on stage, or at least snorting illicit substances at Studio 54. These days, most celebrities try to maintain a clean image for the sake of their publicist's blood pressure. Being a celebrity is similar to being a brand—few stars want their brand to scream "party animal."
That being said, they still get up to all sorts of mischief behind closed doors. Oh, to be a fly on the wall at the Vanity Fair Oscars after-party or Elton John's birthday... A few famous faces have shared some outrageous stories in interviews and drunken Instagram stories, and while they usually gloss over the potentially illegal details, it's clear they know how to have a good time!
Nicole Richie is one of those celebs who seemed to have put her partying days behind her, settling down with husband Joel Madden and their two kids. Long gone are the days she was glued to the hip with Paris Hilton, but she's not totally retired! Richie celebrated her 40th birthday on September 21 and had a horrifying video to share afterward. The video shows Richie leaning over to blow out the candles of her birthday cake, at which point the ends of her catch on fire. The video ends with her screaming as the flames spread further! She captioned it "Well… so far 40 is [fire emoji]."
