Sure, the Met gala is cool, but errrybody knows it’s all about the AFTERPARTIES!
Post-red carpet at the Metropolitan Museum of Art on Monday, everybody headed to the Met Gala Afterparty at the Boom Boom Room in New York City’s downtown Meatpacking District. Us Weekly got a close up view of A party shenanigans:
Celebrating the 2015 Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute Gala, the swanky affair included appearances by Leonardo DiCaprio, Bradley Cooper, P Diddy, Selena Gomez, Jessica Alba, and Kendall and Kylie Jenner. While he didn’t attend the gala, John Mayer turned up at the afterparty, where he met his on-again, off-again girlfriend Katy Perry.
The two musicians have long remained coy about the status of their ever-changing relationship, but seem to be back on in a big way. Perry, 30, kicked off the night with designer Jeremy Scott, the man behind her playful Moschino Met Gala dress. She did an outfit swap for the party, changing into a blonde wig and ditching her voluminous gown for a jacket and skirt.
After getting in some quality time with her fashion designer pal, Perry spent much of her evening canoodling with Mayer, 37. The evidently on-again lovebirds stood very close to one another at the Boom Boom Room, leaning in for many passionate kisses and holding hands as they drank champagne and chatted with other famous attendees.
The affectionate twosome ducked into a back section with pals Allison Williams, Robert Pattinson and his fiancée FKA twigs, and a few others. A longtime Pattinson confidante, Perry bonded with the future Mrs. Pattinson, laughing and hugging the British singer, while Mayer talked shop with the Twilight actor before the men stepped outside together for a smoke.
Dang, this John Mayer/Katy Perry thing is still on? How long is this gonna be going on? I feel like when they’re in their sixties we’ll still be like, “will they won’t they?!” And they’ll be making out in corners at after hours bars…
