Her husband has been known to rap and sing about indulging in drugs and alcohol, but Kim isn’t on Kanye’s wave. Khloe Kardashian told Elle, “Kimberly does not drink alcohol whatsoever…she’s just never been into it.”

Maybe she doesn’t want to lose control in front of all those cameras?

J-Lo’s reason for going alcohol-free is more cosmetic than anything. “I think it ruins your skin,” she told Instyle in 2003.

Considering she’s 50 years old and still looks incredible, I think she might be on to something.

5. Demi Lovato

Demi Lovato first went to rehab when she was 18 years old. She has always been open about her battles with addiction, and after an overdose scare in late 2018, she’s reported that she’s staying happy and clean.

Jada told Us Weekly that she hasn’t had alcohol since the early 90s. Guess the Fresh Prince himself is the only drug she needs!

8. Kendrick Lamar

Kendrick attributes his sobriety to his childhood growing up in Compton, CA. He saw too many people in his family destroyed by substance abuse, and didn’t want the same to happen to him.

You can hear Kendrick address this issue in his song, “Swimming Pools.”

Calvin Harris

Calvin Harris abused alcohol for years before going sober in 2014. He wrote on Twitter, “Wouldn’t dream of encouraging anyone to drink 2 bottle of JD a night,” referring to his old habit of drinking two bottles of Jack Daniel’s whiskey every evening.

The “This Is What You Came For” DJ also wrote, “Aye things are a bit less fun but haven’t had an arrhythmia since 2014.”

We’re happy for these celebs and their decision to put their physical and mental health first!
