1. Usher Dusting The Dust In The Sahara Desert

Many of the destinations that celebrities visit while on vacation are usually peaceful, cozy, and attractive. But Usher decided to go all out... in the Sahara Desert. He camped out in a tent, wore a hat, and rode camels for several days in the desert. Although this isn't your standard celebrity vacation (he tweeted pictures of the sand in his shoes), it sounds like an incredible experience.

2. John Mayer Caught In Costco

Now, this is the last place you expect to see one of the greatest guitarists of our generation... Costco! This fan must have taken a double -take on her trip around the store before asking for a selfie. The question is, though, how on earth did he get a Costco card?!

3. Billie In Target?

Arguably the most famous popstar of the 2020s, spotted in Target! That's not something you see every day! What was she doing there? What was she buying? I guess celebs are just like us - either way, I think I'll be hanging around Target a bit more often.

4. Lizzo On A TV Show

Lizzo is one of the most popular performers in the world, but some keen-eyed fans of her music and have recognized the singer on a "Made in Chelsea" episode back in 2014. In the first episode of the MIC "NYC" series, the singer entertains the cast at a party by singing Blondie's "Rapture" for them. The 31-year-old, however, might not look familiar to you because she has blonde hair and is dressed in an 80s-inspired outfit — completely unlike the popstar we know and love today.

5. Ed At The Chip Shop

For those who don't know what 'the chip shop' is, it is practically Britain's favorite takeout! Here, Ed Sheeran was spotted ordering his fish and chips after a long day. We would expect Ed to go more high-brow, but sometimes you just can't beat the chip shop.

6. Spotted At The Grocery Shop

Am I dreaming? Is this Kris Jenner doing her own grocery shopping? I would usually assume that the Kardashian/Jenner clan would have someone do their grocery shopping for them, but stranger things have happened, I guess! She looks fabulous whilst doing too!

7. This Girl Met Jeff On The Train

Whilst travelling on a train in Prague, this lady noticed a very familiar face on the seat next to her... Jeff Goldblum. She explains that the night train opened the opportunity for the two to get to know each other, which led to them getting "softly wasted"! That's one to tell the grandchildren!

8. Five Hours Next To The One And Only Christian Bale

Some celebrities were photographed riding the subway the "regular way," and some have been seen flying in economy class. And you're lucky if you spot them, but when you are seated next to them, well, that's a different kind of luck. This lucky fellow met Christian Bale on a five-hour flight but only decided to ask for a pic; he was afraid he'd annoy the man.

9. Matt Damon In A Basketball Court In Cambridge

Cambridge is a particularly tempting place for celebrities, both for filming movies and for visiting tourist sites. One time, Matt Damon and George Clooney were filming scenes at the Imperial War Museum Duxford in Cambridge for "The Monuments Men," and according to the local gym manager, Damon was spotted in a basketball court that he booked for a workout.

10. Rihanna At TGI Fridays?!

Yes, you did read that right. Rihanna at TGI Fridays. This is definetly not where most of us would imagine Riri to go for dinner, I don't think this employee could imagine it either. She took a picture with him and signed a bunch of napkins for him, all round a great experience!

11. Lady Gaga In An Ikea Car Park

Lady Gaga gave a performance in an Ikea parking lot, demonstrating that there is nothing she cannot achieve. During the 2008 concert, which took place shortly after the album "The Fame" was released, Gaga donned her recognizable platinum hair, fringe, and angular appearance as she sang in the parking lot.

12. Tom Hanks At Random Weddings

Tom Hanks shows up at so many weddings at random that he really needs to consider taking bookings. The actor was spotted conversing with guests on a beach near the Santa Monica Pier in California, the site of Diciembre and Tashia Farries' wedding. Guests were astonished when they saw the actor relaxing on the beach.

13. Jude Law At A Boutique Hotel In Jamaica

You would expect a celebrity to book a nice five-star hotel for their stay anywhere, really; for famous people like Jude Law, though, it's not the case. He was spotted in Negril, Jamaica, at the Rockhouse Hotel, a boutique hotel that is actually perched on the cliffs of Pristine Coast. The stay has a 60-foot-long pool hanging on a cliff and 8 acres of tropical vegetation. Compared to a typical high-end resort, this sounds way more adventurous.

14. Driving The Legend Itself

Even the A-list actresses can't deny a trip to the movie theatre. This guy works at AMC when he spotted the star and asked for a photograph. Was she going to watch a movie that she starred in? Or does she just LOVE that popcorn? They both look extremely happy to be there, anyway!

15. Looking At Ancient Toilets For A Few Hours

Paul Rudd was spotted in perhaps one of the most unusual places: a historical tour. He visited the Vanderbilt mansion, and people noticed him there, but most of them didn't approach him out of respect. Allegedly, the celebrity spent a few hours looking at old toilets, like the rest of the group.

16. Disneyland Is For Celebrities As Well

Well, this is not such an unexpected place to see celebrities, but yes, even famous people will travel to Anaheim to visit The Happiest Place on Earth. Reese Witherspoon and other celebrities have been photographed at Disney eating Mickey pretzels and riding the Matterhorn. Additionally, Disneyland is the most vegan-friendly theme park, making it ideal for actors, singers, and TV stars and their dietary preferences.

17. Jessie J Singing... In The Sky

Imagine boarding an exhausting British Airways route from Sydney to London and hearing none other than singer Jessie J sing out her top hits. Despite the fact that the location seemed somewhat haphazard and arbitrary, there was a purpose to it. As the cabin was decorated in the style of a classic British street party, complete with bunting and vibrant balloons to welcome the arrival of summer in the UK, the popstar actually played for some special guests.

18. John Travolta Had A Taste Of Britain

John Travolta was seen shopping in Morrisons and then enjoying a drink in Wetherspoons, and we can certainly say that he had a true taste of what it means to be a British citizen. The "Grease" actor unexpectedly showed up over the weekend and startled both customers and employees at the Fakenham branch of the supermarket. You wouldn't anticipate a Hollywood icon appearing at your door, but that is exactly what happened to those people.

19. Middle School Concert

People sometimes get disappointed after meeting their favorite celebrity because they show disrespect and can be really mean to those around them. But Charlie Puth has a really kind soul: He saved a girl who purchased a ticket to one of his concerts (which ended up being a scam) by holding a free performance at her middle school. How sweet!

20. Catching The Bus

This reddit user spotted Patrick Stewart on... the bus! Yet another celebrity who enjoys public transport. This is unexpected from the Star Trek star, yet totally wonderful. Brb, catching the bus from now on, I don't know who I'll meet! The reddit user also said about the encounter that Steward was the nicest guy he had ever met!

21. John Legend And Chrissy Teigen At The Vet

Did you think only regular people go to the vet with their fur babies? John Legend and Chrissy Teigen visited a veterinary clinic in Manhattan's Lower East Side, and according to those who work there, the couple is extremely laid back and down to earth. Their puppies, Pippa and Puddy, are also the prettiest.

22. Weekly Challah Pick Up

The actor and author BJ Novak has always been open about his fondness of Canter's Delicatessen, saying that he frequents it once a week to pick up challah. On his now-deleted app, the Li.st App, he used to document the weekly (small) price adjustment that he claims he couldn't help but notice. Guess how many people saw BJ Novak getting his weekly challah!

23. Tom Cruise Eating Curry In Birmingham

When Tom Cruise visited an Indian restaurant in Birmingham, he suddenly gained the title of honorary Brummie. The star obviously enjoys a platter of chicken tikka masala because, according to eyewitnesses and the owners, he ordered multiple servings of the well-known dish.

24. Tim Allen At The Mona Lisa

Image Source: Reddit

Now, it's not uncommon for our favorite celebs to go and visit the world's most historical landmarks. However, there's something slightly strange about seeing Tim Allen taking a dad selfie in front of the Mona Lisa. I bet he took over as center of attention in the room on this day.

25. Tyra Banks At An Amusement Park

Theme parks are awesome for celebrities as well, not only for regular folks. Tyra Banks was spotted at such an amusement park, and when everyone saw her, they all started approaching her and enquiring as to whether she was Tyra Banks. Typical behavior of regular folks.

26. Giving A Free Performance Near A Lake In Armenia

You don't hear about a famous person visiting Armenia every day. Given that Kanye was married to Kim, who has Armenian heritage, it's not particularly unusual in his case. But it was a surprise that he went to Swan Lake, where he actually gave a free performance. It seems as though he had the idea for a free concert one night, and thanks to Twitter, word of it spread quickly. However, the concert didn't last as long as he wanted to because the police had to shut it down after people began jumping into the water after Kanye.

27. At A Regular Gym

Image Source: Reddit

No judgement here, but don't you think it's totally random that Arnold Schwarzenegger is visiting a public gym for his daily workout. I would just assume he would have access to somewhere more private. Either way, he made this ladies day when she snapped up a picture with the star.

28. Alec Baldwin Got Lost In Hampshire

Alec Baldwin was traveling through an unknown hamlet in Hampshire when he got lost, and he detailed how he did it in a video. The Hollywood celebrity informed his 2.4 million Instagram followers in February 2022 that he was traveling on foot since his chauffeur had been mugged of his car at the airport. Baldwin can be seen casually strolling through Alton while detailing the pickle he was in.

29. "But... He Looked Normal!"

Image Source: Reddit

It's so hilarious when your mom sends you a picture with someone she's met who's "a kind and high-spirited young man," only to realize that wait... this is Chris Pratt! No matter how much you explain to your mom how excited you are, she's insisting that it felt as though she was talking to a normal person. He's the last person I'd expect to bump into at a charity event

30. Training With The Rock

Image Source: Reddit

Imagine going to work one day and meeting your favorite celebrity there. Only we're not talking about a brief encounter at Target or a restaurant. We're aiming more for an hour-long training with none other than Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson. This man met the literal rock at his workplace and said that the actor is the "nicest guy" ever.
