Why Isn’t Beyonce Attending the 2018 Met Gala?
Beyonce is frequently the belle of the ball at the Met Gala, but it looks like Queen Bey may be skipping out on the high-profile fashion event this year.
Entertainment Tonight reports that Beyonce will not be attending the Met Gala in New York City on Monday (May 7), and will instead be going on vacation with her husband, rapper Jay-Z.
"Jay-Z surprised her with a trip because he felt she needed to relax before her [On the Run II] tour," the source told the publication, adding that the singer was planning on wearing a custom designed DUNDAS gown by Peter Dundas.
A spokesperson for Vogue declined to comment to ET on the guest list for the Met Gala. Beyonce has yet to confirm or deny her attendance this evening.
Beyonce's last appearance at the Met Gala was in 2016, where she wore a latex Givenchy gown. She did not attend the soiree in 2017.
The theme of 2018's Met Gala is "Heavenly Bodies: Fashion & The Catholic Imagination."
