Why did Ariana Grande, Rihanna and Selena Gomez skip this year’s Met Gala?
All three attended in 2018 and served us some breathtakingly beautiful looks. Who can forget Ariana in that Vera Wang gown inspired by Michelangelo’s The Last Judgement?!
However, the pop singers all decided to skip this year’s hottest, A-list event.
According to reports, Ariana was unable to attend because she’s playing a stadium in Los Angeles for the next two nights and the event is held in New York City.
Rihanna is also out of town and apparently sunning herself in Barbados. The Fenty Beauty owner is renowned for nailing the theme at the event each year so fan’s were seriously disappointed when she didn’t show up.
Selena Gomez decided to skip the event, which would have been her first red carpet of the year, to spend time with friends in Disneyland, California.
Harry Styles, Dua Lipa and Halsey were among stars who did attend and they all absolutely killed it with their looks.
