Mariah Carey takes the subway in New York

Superstar MARIAH CAREY ditched her usual luxury transport as she headed home after a New York charity gala on Thursday (29May14) to hop on the city's subway system.

The Hero hitmaker posted pictures of herself leaving the Fresh Air Fund's Spring Gala and boarding the 1 train with manager/producer Jermaine Dupri on Instagram.com.

In one photo, in which she is snapped in a floor-length sequined, blue gown, laughing, she writes, "Laughs pon de (on the) subway".

She adds, "Glimpses of our joyride on the 1 train subwayincouture (sic)."

The subway was not the only form of public transportation Carey took on Thursday - she also hopped in a cab on the way to the event.

The 46 year old is not the only celebrity to take an unlikely ride on the subway - in 2012, Jay Z rode the train from Manhattan to Brooklyn for his concert at the Barclays Center.
