...like that time they all sang along to "A Thousand Miles" by Vanessa Carlton.

In a recent interview, Anthony explained he's just not a morning person.

"They know I don't like early mornings man, so that was Jimmy [Butler]'s playlist," he said. "I'm taking the playlist back from him. I'm taking the speakers back from him. No more music."

"I actually like that song, though," Anthony continued. "I like the movie White Chicks, but they got me early in the morning."
