Beyonce flew solo at the Met Gala…but WHY?
Well, you wanted answers and we GOT EM. Page Six made a big deal about how Beyonce wasnÃ¢â¬â¢t wearing her wedding ring and how she was walking solo, without her sister (who walked the red carpet later) or Jay-Z. Sources claim Bey decided not to wear her ring because she didnÃ¢â¬â¢t think it Ã¢â¬Åmeshed wellÃ¢â¬Â with her Becky-skin Givenchy gown. But what of Jay-Z? The two made a point of going to the 2015 Met Gala together as a show of solidarity. But in a post-Lemonade world, what GIVES?
BeyoncÃÂ© completely nailed her 2016 Met Gala look. There was just one thing missing when she hit the red carpet on Monday, May 2, in New York Ã¢â¬â her husband, Jay Z. Although fashionÃ¢â¬â¢s biggest night comes on the heels of BeyÃ¢â¬â¢s much talked-about visual album, Lemonade, sources tell Us Weekly that the rapperÃ¢â¬â¢s absence is no biggie Ã¢â¬â heÃ¢â¬â¢s simply just been there, done that.
Ã¢â¬ÅHeÃ¢â¬â¢s done it before,Ã¢â¬Â the insider explains to Us. Ã¢â¬ÅThereÃ¢â¬â¢s just no big reason for him to go.Ã¢â¬Â
UM, OKAY. And he also didn’t feel the need to go to the after-party, either:
BeyoncÃÂ© attended the Met Gala and after parties sans husband Jay Z. The singer first posed at Gilded Lily for the Balmain bash, where she hung out with the fashion houseÃ¢â¬â¢s creative director, Olivier Rousteing, and her little sister Solange, who arrived with her husband, Alan Ferguson.
Ã¢â¬ÅI donÃ¢â¬â¢t know where Jay was and I definitely thought it was interesting he didnÃ¢â¬â¢t come,Ã¢â¬Â said one partygoer. Ã¢â¬ÅIt definitely fuels speculation about the relationship, but I think thatÃ¢â¬â¢s probably the point. People at the Met were talking about it.Ã¢â¬Â
But the chatter didnÃ¢â¬â¢t bother BeyoncÃÂ© one bit.
She celebrated with Champagne and Ã¢â¬Åwas in high spirits hanging out on the banquette with Olivier. She seemed to be in a very good mood,Ã¢â¬Â a different source said.
Bey later headed over to Up & Down, where DJ Jus Ske played BeyoncÃÂ©Ã¢â¬â¢s song Ã¢â¬ÅFormationÃ¢â¬Â as she arrived with Solange.
Oh man, all this stuff seems so…suspect. Like he’s still in marital purgatory, sorta. What do YOU make of Bey’s Jay-Z-lessness?
