NOT even Grammy-nom­i­nated stars get to shop in peace, it seems. SZA, who has nine Grammy nods, was ac­cused of shoplift­ing at a beauty shop Sephora. The singer blasted the Los An­ge­les store for their ac­cu­sa­tion. She tweeted she’d been shop­ping for Fenty Beauty prod­ucts when she was ha­rassed by an em­ployee named Sandy for “steal­ing” be­fore se­cu­rity guards were called. “Sandy Sephora . . . called se­cu­rity to make sure I wasn’t steal­ing. We had a long talk. U have a blessed day Sandy,” SZA tweeted. The singer’s fans went on­line to blast the beauty store, which has said it’s in­ves­ti­gat­ing the in­ci­dent as it “takes com­plaints like this very se­ri­ously, pro­fil­ing on the ba­sis of race is not tol­er­ated at Sephora”.
