It turns out that Justin Bieber, the superstar with a fanbase big enough to form its own country, occasionally gets the whisper from a cashier telling him that his credit card was declined.
Justin and his girlfriend Sofia Richie were heading home after a night at Barney’s in New York and made a quick pit stop to a Subway store to grab a bite. Sofia waited in the car while Justin goes in to order a sandwich, milk, and some cookies. Justin was in luck as one of his fans were waiting in line behind him and offered the Biebs to take care of the bill, saving Justin any further embarrassment and allowing him to be on his way, probably to make arrangements to pay his credit card off and to avoid any more embarrassing exchanges.
Last month Adele, another young multimillionaire singer, had a very similar experience when she had her credit card declined at H&M. I’m guessing celebrities are people too.
