In a new interview for FASHION magazine, Zendaya Coleman discussed the very chill way she celebrated a milestone birthday — her 21st. It involved hanging out at home with family and friends. For this self-proclaimed homebody, that was all she needed.

“For me, a Vegas version of my birthday would be like hell,” she told the magazine. “I’ve always been a very old woman inside a younger person’s body. Of course, I have my young-people tendencies; we all have those. But at the end of the day, I’ve always been called a grandma. I don’t like going out. I enjoy the company of my TV and myself. And you know what? It’s been very helpful, honestly.”

Like many of us, Coleman enjoys the peace and quiet of being home as opposed to the effort and energy it takes to be among a bunch of people out and about (I get tired just thinking about hanging out with people sometimes). Many stars have opened up about their love of staying home and not being bothered. Check out nine other Black women who are self-proclaimed homebodies.

Issa Rae

As she explained in her “Sad Hot Girls” video for Vogue, Issa Rae lives to be at home — or at least far away from the club.

“I don’t like going out. I just don’t,” she said. “I’m just more of a kick it at home, bring some friends over, have some wine. I can even do house parties because house parties are fun. There are people that you know. There’s a purpose.  You actually dance. But the club, there’s just something about it that’s just disgusting to me. I will always find an excuse to get out of it.”

Jhene Aiko

Earlier this month, the singer told HypeBae that if she could, she would do everything from home. Literally.

“I’m a homebody for sure, I love to stay at home,” she said. “I’ve always said that if I could, I would just have people come over to my house. If there’s a show or a shoot I’m just like, ‘can we do it at my house? You guys should just come over to mine….’”

Serena Williams

The tennis ace and her fiancé shared in her recent Vanity Fair cover story that they are quite the perfect match as they share similar homebody tendencies. For example, the two enjoy cooking together at home.

Why would one want to leave home when everything awesome is there? At least, that’s Kelis’ excuse.

“I’m such a homebody, but I can be because I’ve put everything that I care about in this house — from my kids to my kitchen to my dad’s record collection, I literally have everything here,” she told Nowness while giving a tour of her home.

Believe it or not, the colorful MC says she actually prefers staying inside, cooking curry chicken and catching up on all of her favorite movies and Investigation Discovery shows.

“I’m a homebody. For one month straight, I watched ‘The Devil Wears Prada’ until I fell a sleep every night,” she told Us Weekly in 2014. “I enjoy doing laundry. I can spend hours glued to Investigation Discovery. It’s my favorite network.”

Kerry Washington

Washington, like Serena Williams, is lucky to have found love with someone who enjoys being at home. A source close to the couple told PEOPLE, “They’re homebodies and really weird about who they let in their circle,” they said. “Every now and then they’ll go out to a movie at ArcLight, but they just hang out at their place.”

Her middle name might be Princess, but Ciara is low-maintenance. She told Us in 2013 that she is indeed a homebody. Now it all makes sense why she and Serena are so close!

In 2003, Lil Kim was asked by Rap Radar if she saw herself settling down and having kids one day. She said that as a homebody, the idea fit her image of a perfect life.

“Of course. I’m a very family-oriented person and I am a homebody, so I do like to be in my house and play mommy.”

Sade Adu

Honestly, who didn’t expect reclusive singer Sade Adu to be a homebody? In 2011 she told The National that she was reluctant to return to the spotlight for Soldier of Love, released in 2010, because she had grown accustomed to being at home, raising her daughter and “building or creating something” when she felt like it. It’s probably the reason we haven’t seen her out and about since.
