Rihanna rides the subway in London today

You’re probably wondering why pop singer Rihanna always rides the subway when she’s in London, England. The answer is simple: she’s a nobody in London.

 — also known as a commoner. We Londoners don’t place celebrities and other famous people on pedestals the way you Americans do. As a society, in London, we value the contributions of teachers and doctors.
A celebrity’s talents are appreciated in London but Londoners don’t hype or idolize stars like we do here in the states. Seeing a celebrity such as Rihanna riding the subway train in London is a common occurrence. We yawn at celebrity sightings in London.
