Jay Z and Chris Martin on the tube [Twitter]
Let’s be honest, the reason why we love seeing pictures of celebrities on public transport is because it fuels our secret hope that one day we will bump into them. Hell, if Rihanna can take the tube to one of her gigs there’s every chance we might run into Brad Pitt on the circle line right? RIGHT?
The latest person to hop on the jubilee line? Why it's Mr. Jay Z himself! Last night Jay stunned passengers when he hopped aboard the tube with none other than Chris Martin and Timberland all so that he could get to his gig at the o2. Now, whilst it's not known whether Jay just forgot to bring his private helicopter with him this time or whether he just fancied getting down and dirty with some Londoners we would be pretty happy if we got to share a carriage with him.
Of course Jay isn't the first person to hop on public transport. Katie Holmes in particular seems to have become particularly fond of taking the train (or subway as they call it in New York) to work. In fact, ever since she and Tom split Katie has shunned the private jet in favour of public transport. She's even been known to take Suri with her, well, if there is one way to say you are like TOTALLY over your divorce it’s getting up close and personal with the general public.
Even the Kardashians have been known to train hop – we know, we didn’t believe it either! By far our fave though is Madonna who always likes to go incognito with she travels normal class. She was spotted by eagle eyed passengers in NYC wearing dark glasses and a hat, well, she wouldn’t want autograph signing to get in the way of her enjoying her ride would she?
