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 wasn’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 didn’t think it “meshed well” 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?
Beyoncé 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 — her husband, Jay Z. Although fashion’s biggest night comes on the heels of Bey’s much talked-about visual album, Lemonade, sources tell Us Weekly that the rapper’s absence is no biggie — he’s simply just been there, done that.
“He’s done it before,” the insider explains to Us. “There’s just no big reason for him to go.”
UM, OKAY. And he also didn’t feel the need to go to the after-party, either:
Beyoncé 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 house’s creative director, Olivier Rousteing, and her little sister Solange, who arrived with her husband, Alan Ferguson.
“I don’t know where Jay was and I definitely thought it was interesting he didn’t come,” said one partygoer. “It definitely fuels speculation about the relationship, but I think that’s probably the point. People at the Met were talking about it.”
But the chatter didn’t bother Beyoncé one bit.
She celebrated with Champagne and “was in high spirits hanging out on the banquette with Olivier. She seemed to be in a very good mood,” a different source said.
Bey later headed over to Up & Down, where DJ Jus Ske played Beyoncé’s song “Formation” 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?
