She may be a millionaire, but Adele's credit card was declined recently at H&M - an experience that left her absolutely "mortified." Despite the "Someone Like You" singer's estimated net worth of USD$125 million, her card was turned away at the till.
Instead of keeping the embarrassing anecdote to herself, Adele shared it with her fans while performing at a concert in San Jose, California.
"I went to H&M and my card got declined," the straight-talking star said. "Oh my days, pretty embarrassing."
"Nobody knew it was me, but I was mortified," she added.
To make matter worse, Adele's pet dachshund Louie got into a scrap with another dog.
"My dog tried to claw another dog," she said. "My trip to H&M was great... but no one knew it was me so I think I'm going to get away with it."
Despite having the millions to shop anywhere she wants, the Tottenham-born star is a fan of discount stores.
While on tour in the US, Adele has been spotted bargain-hunting at budget megastore Target. She has also been seen at Asda and another H&M store in Glasgow.
Adele, who was named the world's sixth richest star under 30, also has her stylist pick up cheap buys at car boot sales.
Adele also admitted: "I used to shop at Primark for my knickers all the time. I loved going there and getting some bargains. But the last time I tried to go in there I almost got murdered.
"I don't know if it was because I was famous or because they wanted what I was trying to buy."
