So it turns out that US Weekly totally lied to us. Celebs are not like us. Because when you’re hungover and debating whether you have time to make it to the toilet, celebrities are relaxing in a hospital bed while a Party Girl Drip does all the hard work. Forget the headaches and the stomachaches and the life-choices-ache. Because celebs apparently never have to worry about that now that they’ve learned they can drink as much as they want without any negative consequences.
Besides the obvious consequence of their press rep taking away their Twitter rights.
Rumors are starting that Rihanna’s hospital stay last week after the Met Ball was actually not for exhaustion, but rather for a hangover. After waking up and feeling like death, she just popped into the local hospital and ordered up a party girl drip.
According to The Daily Mail, “the popularity of the drip, which contains a concentrated dose of vitamins and nutrients – usually vitamins C and B complex, as well as magnesium and calcium – has risen drastically among those using them to help them cope with a heavy partying lifestyle.”
And before you start thinking like that sounds like a good option, it costs 225 pounds. Which roughly equals $500. So that’s like the most expensive hangover cure ever. Suddenly spending $20 on last minute tequila shots doesn’t looks quite as financially irresponsible.
Oh also, according to nutritionist Jasmine Challis, it’s not super healthy to cure hangovers with an IV drip. She says, “ drips can be very dangerous as they see the vitamins bypass the kidney and stomach and go straight into the bloodstream.” Turns out that if vitamins aren’t absorbed the way they’re meant to be absorbed, you can actually overdose.
I’m not a doctor nor am I a WebMD.com symptom model, but even I know that doesn’t sound promising for your body. But that still doesn’t mean I’m not jealous of all the celebs who can afford this hangover quick fix.
It would just mean I could actually play deadly drinking games during every show I cover for Crushable and still show up to work coherent the next day.
