Stars -- they're just like us! Well, sort of.

They may have private cars in Hollywood (OK, here, too), but these celebs know that sometimes you just can't beat the subway for getting around New York City.

Fergie turned a rainy New York afternoon into a subway singalong on May 16, 2018. En route an annual Paley Center music and television gala, the Black Eyed Peas singer decided to take the train from Columbus Circle to Wall Street to escape the thunderstorm. She documented the entire encounter, from standing on the platform to greeting fans on the 2 train, on her Instagram. "So we're taking the subway because a tropical storm hit New York, and we had to get from Columbus Circle to Cipriani's Wall Street ... Full white suit, check it out, August Getty," the singer said on her Instagram Story. She was photographed by commuters and reportedly sang along to her track "Glamorous" with fans.
