CARDED

2/23/2011 9:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

He's been world famous for more than 20 years -- but 51-year-old Flavor Flav was forced to SHOW ID before he could buy cigarettes at a Las Vegas convenience store Monday night ... TMZ has learned.

We're told Flav asked to buy a pack of grape-flavored Swisher Sweets ... when the clerk asked Flav for identification proving he was of age.

Flav respectfully obliged ... and tells TMZ, "I wasn’t bothered ... I was flattered that she asked me for my ID" ... adding, "The woman was there doing what she had to do, her job.”

I agree with poster #1: It's not because he physically looks young, it's becuase he dresses and acts so immature!

A friend of mine works at the El Capitan in Hollywood and they card everyone that pays by credit card. That includes the numerous celebrities that come by even if they know who it is. She found asking Drew Barrymore her ID very awkward.

hey everyone who didn't know this. The company pocodot is trying to trick youtube viewers into making pocodot accounts. That comment you see is fake and so are the thumbs up. Do not make a pocodot, it is lame. I just made one and they won't let me delete it. Please copy and paste this into every video with fake pocodot highest rated comments before anyone else gets sucked into this bs.

hey you can say what you want about flav, but the guy didn't pull the "don't you know who i am?" crap most celebs (and a lot of pseudo-celebs) would have trotted out. maybe one of the reasons this guy is still seen around (aside from his willingness to engage in reality tv) is that he's an honestly decent individual. where are the rest of those from his era these days?

Who cares about this idiot? Or this article. Have people in this country become so obsesed with these flakey celebs. that they would consider this as important news. Take a good long look around america we have alot more bigger issues and problems in this country that need more attention then waisting time reading or writing about crap like this or these flakes.
