Usually, being a famous musician makes things easier: no waiting for tables at a restaurant, VIP service everywhere you go, and the paycheck isn’t bad either. When it comes to adopting a dog, though, apparently that rule doesn’t apply.

John Legend and his wife Chrissy Teigen found that out recently as they tried to adopt Penny, a three legged dog from a shelter in Los Angeles.

“We filled out an application and the woman from the rescue was like, ‘Well, I know you’re a musician and I know musicians are into drugs…’ She goes, ‘I need to see John’s motor home,’ explained Teigen.

So off to Savannah, GA, they went, the shelter’s boss and Teigen, to take a tour of Legend’s tour bus where Penny was bound to spend much of her time.

“She came on the tour bus – John was touring through Savannah – checked it out to make sure there were no loose wires or meth or whatever,” told Teigen. “Penny was a serious purchase.”

After the inspection, Teigen and Legend were allowed to adopt Penny who is now (safely) living the rock star life.

If you’re mourning Sudan the rhino, go vegan

The world needs more vegans because more than dollars or pledges or sad-emoji riddled posts, our individual efforts can stop the demand for horns, for zoos, for animal flesh, and for the exploitation of any living being.
