If you were worth $500 million would you still go shopping? Or would you have a personal servant running around like a manic cartoon to do that sort of thing for you? I think I know what my answer would be, and it would involve me barking orders at a frantic entourage while I float around the lazy river I had built into, and around, my mansion.
I guess what I’m trying to say is this: if I was a millionaire you’d never see me step another foot near a damn supermarket. Maybe it’s because I’m a man and all forms of shopping trigger an allergy, but if I had $500 million you certainly wouldn’t find me trudging along a target with a trolley full of crap while I try and figure out where they’ve moved the bread to.
But kudos to Beyoncé who has, bizarrely enough, been spotted shopping at Target with her daughter Blue Ivy just like any normal family. Well… any normal family that’s richer than most countries, but sure, whatever, let’s go along with it.
Further proof me & Beyoncé are similar: she went to target for a toothpaste and ended up with a cart full of who knows what pic.twitter.com/KvjChk5QFz— dizzle_saint_james (@Ummhowaboutno_) 26 March 2018
The shopper tried to cover some of her face with oversized sunglasses but it wasn’t nearly enough (is it ever? Just ask Superman, glasses are never enough) and twitter has been flooded with users posting their own sneaky snaps of the millionaire super star. Needless to say, almost all of the tweets are expressing pure shock.

Even better though is that Beyoncé has been spotted doing this kind of thing before. In December last year she was spotted at Target, so it appears that in between being richer than freakin’ God she occasionally likes to sample the normal life by walking into a supermarket to grab some toothpaste. Good for her, although it does make for a strange comparison to last week’s story when Beyonce and Jay Z sat back and let their daughter, Blue Ivy, bid freely at an auction. The young girl wound up bidding on art pieces worth thousands and thousands of dollars, an idea that would give most new parents a heart attack.
We suppose it’s good that Beyoncé is making an effort to introduce Blue Ivy to a range of experiences, some as extravagant as an art auction and others as mundane as shopping for toothpaste.

Seriously though, if it was me I’d have a lazy river going through my house and I’d just be floating in it all damn day, occasionally lifting an arm to snatch a pre-made drink from the fingers of a waiting attendant.
I’ve thought about this. I’ve seriously thought about it.
