Target Run! Revealed—The Top Celebrities Who Shop at U.S Superstore Target

People love to do a little star-spotting!

A plethora of celebrities have been photographed, frequenting major Target stores up and down the country—far and wide. Some of these famous faces, such actress Jennifer Garner and Victoria Beckham, have longstanding relationships with the mega-brand, while others are just out doing a bit of shopping like the rest of us.

Running to Target can be a mundane chore, but it can be a fun experience, too, especially if you spot a few famous folk on your “run.”

The super-chain often attracts the rich and famous to its stores. Even big names that have 5-star cushy lives. So whether you are the former First Lady—Michelle Obama, Nikki Lund, or Brittney Spears, a trip to the national retailer can often cause a stir on social media.

Ellen DeGeneres

Ellen DeGeneres went to pick up a few things for the holidays and had some fun with Target shoppers.

In the past, Adele, Victoria Beckham, Ellen DeGeneres, Sean Borg, Joel Madden, and even Liam Hemsworth, have all been snapped, pushing the trademark “lollypop red” shopping cart through Targets doors.

These days, you never know whom you might bump into on a Target run, and the paparazzi are never too far behind.

Jennifer Garner

“On Target”: Jennifer Garner shopping at Target in Los Angeles.

Some of these celebrities shop at Target for household items, while others buy clothes. We’ve compiled a list of our favorite stars who seem to love shopping at the U.S superstore.

This list features “all-profile” celebrities who shop at Target—loosely ranked by fame and popularity. Several famous singers and musicians, familiar fashion designers, brand ambassadors, TV hosts, and reality TV stars, who all shop at Target.

Adele

Superstar singer Adele was spotted at Target the day before her Grammy Award winning appearance.

Proving she is just as much of an avid shopper as any of us, Adele was seen at Target the day before her Grammy Award-winning appearance. The British singer was dressed down in a super casual in an all-black outfit, with no makeup. At one point during the lightly-priced shopping spree, she flipped through some kiddie coloring books, presumably for her young son Angelo.

Britney Spears

Pop singer Britney shopped at Target 80 times last year.

“Oops, she did it again!” to the tune of 80 times, according to E! News. Singer Britney Spears who went to Target a staggering 80 Times Last Year. According to documents from the music superstar’s conservatorship case, which requires an annual accounting of all the money going in and out of her account, E! News reported the documents listed more than 80 different trips to Target, where she was able to experience all the store’s offerings. Including décor, food, clothes, toys, and more.

Nikki Lund

Fashion designer and singer Nikki Lund was seen shopping for Halloween in Woodland Hills, CA.

It’s almost Halloween! And fashion designer; singer Nikki Lund knew precisely where to shop for spooky decorations . Nikki is a regular Target shopper, seen here with a cart full of toys, presumably in preparation for the upcoming ghostly celebrations. The Californian babe left little to the imagination in a revealing sexy outfit on a recent Target run—in Woodland Hills, California. When you’re as famous as Nikki is—there is nothing Target shoppers like more than a good show. Happy Hallowe’en!

Liam Hemsworth and Miley Cyrus

Happier times: Before their split, Miley Cyrus, and ex-husband Liam Hemsworth on a Target run in LA.

In happier times, and way before their split, Miley Cyrus, and her ex-husband Liam Hemsworth went incognito on a Target run, in Los Angeles. Both were dressed casually when a fan spotted them in the checkout line. The former lovebirds picked up a few items from the store, rocking some comfy threads and hats. They purchased two fluffy white pillows, amongst other things, proving they’re just like us. Since then, Liam has shopped solo at various Target stores around the country.

Sean Borg

Entertainment personality, Sean Borg was seen shopping at Target in Palm Springs, CA.

Former TMZ-turned-Trivago guySean Borg was seen at his favorite Target store in Palm Springs, California. The entertainment personality appeared oblivious to the eagle-eyed paparazzi following him around as he casually shopped for healthy produce in the fruit and veg section.

Heidi Klum

‘America’s Got Talent’ judge Heidi Klum was seen shopping at Target in Hollywood, California

Supermodel Heidi Klum is often seen shopping makeup-free at Target stores around Los Angeles—from Westwood to Hollywood. The ‘America’s Got Talent’ judge is probably paid a fortune to promote big-named brands worldwide. So we wonder if the German-born beauty might be on “Tar-Jay’s” payroll?

Former First Lady Michelle Obama

Former First Lady Michelle Obama at a Target store on Route 1 in Alexandria, Virginia.

“One thing she loves to do is shop at Target,” President Barack Obama said of his wife in an interview back in 2011. So, even if you are Michelle Obama, everyone needs a little “Tar-Jay” in their lives. The former First Lady proves this to be accurate, after she stopped off for a bit of shopping on Route 1 in Alexandria, VA, to the delight hundreds of fans who couldn’t believe their eyes as her attempt to go incognito failed her—causing a subsequent lockdown at the store.

Joel Madden and Nicole Richie

Joel Madden and Nicole Richie spotted toy shopping at Target.

Joel Madden and Nicole Richie are often spotted shopping together at Target. On this particular trip, they took their children, Harlow and Sparrow toy shopping. The happy couple pushed their cart around just like all the other shoppers, going virually unnoticed, as they filled it with fun stuff for the kids. Harlow got a Disney Princess bike with training wheels. The lucky tots!

Justin Timberlake

Justin Timberlake on Target run in a stunt to promote his new album.

Justin Timberlake visited a Target store in Midway in St. Paul, Minnesota, to fill his shopping cart with some of his favorite items and to sign records for some of his biggest fans. The star took to Instagram to say: Just made a #targetrun and got my limited edition vinyl there. Also left a gift for 5 of y’all at the Super @Target in St. Paul, Minnesota (1300 University Ave W, St Paul). Find the manager and give her the code word ‘aardvark.’ #ManoftheWoods #PJMasks #ETtheMovie. A happy shopper, indeed!

Victoria Beckham

Not so posh! Victoria Beckham loves to shop at Target when she is stateside.

We are usually accustomed to the sight of Victoria Beckham, groomed, and sashaying in and out of exclusive designer boutiques. However, proving she is not as posh as her former Spice Girls persona would have us believe. We hear that Mrs. Beckham loves to shop at Target when she’s in Los Angeles. The pop-singer-turned-fashion designer even created her very own range for the giant store, that launched back on Apr 7, 2017.

How lucky is Target, to have so many famous faces endorsing its greatness? Next time I’m on a big “Tar-Jay” run, I shall be sure to keep my eyes wide open, and iPhone at the ready, just in case a star just happens to pass me by pushing their cart. And star-spotting certainly makes shopping a whole lot more fun, we think.

11 Celebrities​ and Their Dogs

We love our four-legged friends!

Now meet some of your favorite celebrities and their dogs.

A love of animals isn’t uncommon, especially in the celebrity world where it is acceptable to carry your dog around in your purse or dress them in high-end fashion. Like Paris Hilton does, for example, or “Real Housewife,” Lisa Vanderpump. Celebrities aren’t shy about showing their love for their beloved dogs publicly.

Dogs are a celebrity’s best friend, right? In the age of social media, we’ve gotten to know these pets just as well as we know their owners.

And when a celeb is also an animal lover, there’s something about that trait that makes them that much more amazing as people. These stars prove that they’ve gone over the line of puppy love and into obsession territory. Really, though, who can blame them?

At this point, it’s almost a requirement for a celebrity to make an Instagram account for their pet so their fans can share the love. (We’re not complaining — the more dogs that grace our timelines, the better.)

Here are 11 celebrities who are obsessed with their pets and want the world to know it!

1. Simon Cowell

Simon Cowell is devoted to all three of his dogs – and his canine family is about to get a bit bigger!

Simon is dad to three dogs including Squiddly and Diddly

The music-mogul has expanded his furry family yet again after he rescued a stray dog from Barbados by adopting her after meeting they met at a charity event on the Caribbean island. He began re-homing dogs when his mother passed away in 2015.

The cross terrier Daisy and her two puppies were discovered at his annual auction for dogs in Barbados, in association with K9 Friends. Simon has our hearts on a string!

2. Sean Borg

Doting dog lover, Sean Borg revealed in a recent interview with leading Aussie Magazine website “Best in Au,” how much he loves being a dog-dad.

The Trivago brand ambassador revealed said his dogs travel everywhere with him — even on business trips. So the British personality must insist the hotels have to be pet-friendly. He said: ‘I love my dogs. I take them everywhere, so it’s essential that wherever I stay, my dogs must be welcomed with open arms.’

3. Lady Victoria Hervey

Lady Victoria Hervey is never without her dog; it seems, which is why she always appears to be in holiday mode. She was seen not so long ago sporting chic a cutaway swimsuit and a pair of tiny white shorts for an afternoon in a New York park with her gorgeous pet pooch, D’artagnan.

The British aristocrat walked her tiny Norfolk Terrier on the leash, wearing a pair of distressed denim shorts, showcasing her toned legs while strolling in the park. “Lady V” is a well-known animal activist. Medals all-round!

4. Lisa Vanderpump

Everyone knows Lisa Vanderpump loves dogs, but she especially loves her Pomeranian Giggy, and it’s easy to see why. First of all, there isn’t an outfit on Earth that Giggy can’t rock. Secondly, he has many adoring celebrity fans. And finally, Lisa’s husband, Ken Todd, is obsessed with him.

Everyone knows Lisa Vanderpump loves dogs, she especially loves her Pomeranian Giggy

And those are just the things we already knew about Giggy. Sure, Giggy has been a part of our lives since Season 1 of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, but he’s still got some secrets up his designer sleeve. From a hidden superpower to a super sexy fetish, Giggy always knows how to surprise us after all these years. Press play on the above clip to get to know Giggy like never before.

5. Paris Hilton

Paris Hilton, the heiress to the Hilton Hotels fortune, has no shortage of pets. … Paris Hilton still mourns her ChihuahuaTinkerbell on the Hilton Pets Instagram page. But keeping true to her love for the breed, she purchased a micro Chihuahua for $8000 in October 2016 and named it Diamond Baby. Fitting!

As an animal lover, she always seems to have numerous pampered pooches in tow and appears to spare no expense to keep them living the lux life. These fabulous fur-balls naturally have their own group @HILTONPETS Instagram, with many of them even boasting personal social media pages that fans can follow.

6. Andy Cohen

It took Bravo star Andy Cohen decades to realize the impact a dog could have on his life. Now he wants to keep others from taking so long to find out. They say when you know, you know and, for Andy, when he first spotted Wacha, he just knew. Bless!

Andy rescued Wacha from Virginia when the pup was just one year old, and it’s been true love ever since. Growing up in St. Louis, the Watch What Happens Live host never had a dog. When he decided to get one final, he knew from the start that he wanted to adopt. And we love that!

7. Alec Baldwin

Alec Baldwin is famous for many things. His recent viral quote being, ‘Just let Me Walk My Dogs in Peace,’ and why shouldn’t he be able to? The notable actor is known for his many run-ins with the paparazzi. Baldwin is often on the streets of New York waking the family pooches.

Baldwin, worth an estimated net worth of $65 million, looks uncharacteristically indifferent while walking the pups. We hear he is nothing like his lousy press would have us believe. Anyway, he’s a doting-dog lover, and so he is forgiven as far we’re concerned!

8. Henry Cavill

Most of us swoon over Henry Cavill. But now that we know he’s got a pet-pooch with this much fluff…let’s be honest; we might be more excited to meet Kal than his owner.

The British actor loves his dog, more than anything. It makes sense that Superman would have a super dog, no? But OMG, have you ever seen a giant dog this cute?

Instagram is a blessing to us all, especially when Cavill shares photos of his big, fluffy buddy, Kal. We need to meet this guy, but mostly to meet his adorable dog!

9. Kim Kardashian West

Kim Kardashian West has welcomed two new furry babies into her famous family — and she needs help deciding their names!

The Keeping Up with the Kardashians star can be seen holding up the puppies, a white-colored pooch in her right hand and a black-colored pup in her left, she wrote: ‘Meet our new babies! We just need names! North came up with names that go with our other Pomeranian Sushi. She wants a white baby girl to be named Saké and the black baby boy either Soba (Noodle) or Soy Sauce. Please comment below any ideas you have!!!!’

Kim explained that they are looking to name the dog’s something related to their other Pomeranian — Sushi. Any ideas?

10. Amy Schumer 

Actress Amy Schumer adopted her dog in 2017 and named her after actress Tatiana Maslany. We don’t typically think of comedian as an “under the radar” type of celeb, but when it came to getting a dog, Amy went total stealth-mode on us.

Actress Amy Schumer adopted her dog Tatiana in 2017

The typically outspoken actress posted some photos on her Instagram of a small black dog, but no caption specified who the dog belonged to until we later heard she had rescued “Tati” the loveable canine. Good for her!

11. Bianca Rae

Biana Rae loves her gorgeous little rescue dog — a spaniel mix named Jack. The rising Spectrum News (So Cal) news starlet manages to juggle her full-time career as a TV reporter and humanitarian/philanthropist, serving as CEO to her worthy organization The Bianca Rae Foundation. Bianca said: “We focus on kids and animals. For me, it’s under the same umbrella.”

In 2017 the TV personality and news anchor even had Jack — her faithful spaniel-mix by her side when she received the most significant honor a person can receive in the city of Palm Springs — a star on the prestigious ‘Palm Springs Walk of Stars,’ awarded for her achievements in television and her many charitable contributions.

Television anchor Bianca take her Spaniel-mix Jack with her on all occasions

Bianca loves doing mommy and doggie stuff with Jack on the weekends, “The perfect Saturday would be running errands with Jack while country music blasts in my car, just the two of us out there trying to change the world,” she said.

And that’s a wrap, folks… We hope you enjoyed some of our favorite and well-known dog lovers out there. You can’t believe how cute these celebrities‘ little furry friends are!

These “lucky 11” stars love spending time with their doggies. And we hope you had as much fun reading about them.

We so want to go and adopt a dog of our own…right now!

Sean Borg was spotted at Agua Caliente Resort Casino Spa in Palm Springs last night, attending his pop hero’s Duran Duran’s show ‘Paper Gods.’

The former ‘TMZ on TV’ personality cut a cool figure dressed in 90s grunge-style-chic with a twist of modernism that consisted of the latest Gucci ‘Ace ‘GG’ Supreme’ footwear and black ‘GG’ belt, with a string of spiritual mala beads around his neck that added to his trendy ensemble.

The British showbiz guru, based in Los Angeles has been an avid fan of Duran Duran since the 1980s. Borg expressed his excitement by posting to his Instagram page, with delight. He said: “Had a blast catching up with friends from @duranduran last night! #duranduran #newromantics #the80s #hungrylikethewolf #wildboys

The Trivago guy had much to celebrate, and it seems, not only was he celebrating his Duran Duran friend’s— drummer Roger Taylor and keyboardist— Nick Rhodes’ arrival to the city of Palm Springs, the show happen to be on September, 5th— the same day as Sean’s 51st birthday.

So what’s his secret to looking so youthful? Sean said: “I drink lots of water, I rarely drink alcohol, and I get a good night’s sleep. But that sounds like an older person talking if you ask you me.”

He added: “Looking great as you get older is all about paying attention to the details—and being consistent. Things like applying moisturizer daily have a cumulative effect that becomes more and more apparent over time.”

“Men want to look good too. It’s more masculine than you think to use products these days,” he said.

Who Is Trivago’s New Face? The Campaign Buzz Has Begun


Trivago
 appears to be changing up its advertising campaigns with several “new faces” rumored to be joining the successful hotel-booking platform.

Coupled with the big news that the hotel-search site has picked advertising giant Peppercomm as U.S. AOR after the agency tweeted about the win earlier this month.

Now a considerable buzz is exploding on all social media platforms—with Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram equally bemused by the rumors flying.

Who doesn’t know the Trivago Guy or Girl by now? Over the years, they have become a national advertising institution. It appears that fans are on a quest get to the bottom of who will be the “new faces” of its upcoming 2019 and 2020 media-marketing strategy.

One person who stands out, in particular, is former TMZ news guy Sean Borg, seen in a series of Trivago “style” campaign images circulating the Internet, causing a frenzy among Trivago die-hards.

The promotional shots feature Borg posing with the familiar “multi-colored” Trivago logo emblazoned across his T-shirt. Leading fans to believe he might be one of Trivago’s new choices.

The campaigns have proved immensely popular among travelers worldwide, which saw Australian actress and model, Gabrielle Miller as the Trivago girl. Miller appeared in a series of successful ads, mainly in the UK. 

However, according to Diana Vidovic, a former regional manager for Trivago, Miller is on hiatus. Vidovic was quoted recently saying: “While Trivago Girl isn’t gone for good just yet, she’s taking a hiatus.” And the original player, Tim Williams, can still be seen in commercials across the US.

According to Phocuswright research, four out of five people participate in a tour, activity, ticketed event or attraction during their trip and two out of five people research these before they book their flights or accommodation.

Which is precisely why—according to insiders, Trivago’s upcoming advertising campaigns will be more about customer-related experiences.

So, is British-born Borg, one of the hot new faces?

Here’s what we know about Sean Borg. He is no stranger in the world of entertainment.

He is a well-known British host and columnist who has appeared on a number TV shows and showbiz websites over the years, including TMZ, Hollywood 411 (with ‘The Bachelor’ host, Chris Harrison) for TV Guide, and was once even a writer for The New York Post’s — PageSix column.

Borg is also a friend of Hollywood socialite, Paris Hilton. That’s a hotel connection.

But is this just a bunch of very smart hype from the world’s leading hotel price comparison site?

Growth rates of Trivago’s (NASDAQ:TRVG) financials make it one of the most interesting stocks to analyze at the moment, making its upside quite significant.

Trivago’s marketing and product optimization efforts in the past year are paying off as the metasearch site grew its referral revenue in June compared to one year earlier while its advertising spend was lower in the same time frame.

Shares of Trivago gained 22.1% in July, according to data from S&P Global Market Intelligence.

The hotel search company posted its results on July 24, with sales and earnings for the period topping expectations and helping the stock close the month with substantial double-digit gains.

We reached out to Trivago’s head office in Düsseldorf for comment on their new campaigns, but as of yet received no official word.
