See? GRAMMY-winning celebrities ARE just like us!
We’re not sure why H&M would turn down the credit card of the 9th highest paid celebrity in the world, but rumor has it that Adele was turned down by the fashion retailer during a shopping trip before her show in San Jose, California on July 31st.
Time magazine is reporting that Adele told her embrrassing story to the crowd in between songs that night. “I went to H&M and my card got declined. Oh my days, pretty embarrassing. Nobody knew it was me, but I was mortified.”
We’re not sure which is less believable — the fact that her card got declined, or that nobody recognized her. But according to the singer, both happened. In ‘N’ Out Burger, and Target, however, had no problem taking her money.
Adele told the crowd that the first thing she does when she arrives to California, is go to the burger joint and hit up Target. “They have everything!” she exclaimed about the discount store. “Literally I spent $100 on stuff I do not need, I never need anything I buy at Target but it’s amazing.” Check out the cute fan-captured video below.
