When Mariah Carey Rides the Subway, She Wears a Ball Gown

May 30, 2014

Some celebrities subtly ride subways, trying—but often failing—to blend in with the morning rush. But not Mariah! When the diva goes underground, she makes sure to wear a ball gown for the occasion.

Obviously the Glitter star documented the event on Instagram. Because you guys, she's JUST LIKE US!

Only... in #subwaycouture

Remember when Jay-Z had a lovely conversation with an old lady outside his demographic on New York's R train. ("Are you famous?" "Not very famous.")

Yeah, this wasn't like that.
