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.
