Editor’s note: Forgive us for the above photo; that’s just how we imagine Beyoncé and Blue Ivy walking into their local Target. 

We can always use a little “Stars—They’re Just Like Us!” sparkle to brighten up an otherwise dull Tuesday, but this one might be the best one yet. An eagle-eyed employee with a knack for celebrity spotting (if her Twitter feed is any indication) caught the world’s most famous superstar being super relatable at our favorite superstore, Target.


Wearing ripped jeans and a pair of not-so-disguising shades, with Blue Ivy and a cart full of toys and goodies by her side (are those cupcakes on the bottom rack of that shopping cart)?, the mom of three was just like any other shopper who likes to get all of her deals in one place—minus the stiletto heels and security detail on hand, of course. (I’m sure he’s just there to make sure nobody else tries to bite Beyoncé.)

While the best we can discern from this celebrity sighting is that it’s likely going to be a very happy Easter at the Knowles-Carter residence, it’s still fun to find out that one of the world’s highest-paid megastars still occasionally does her own shopping—and likely scored some megadeals in the process.

See? She’s just like us! (Now, can we get some megadeals on those tour tickets, Bey?)
