While the 2019 Met Gala saw Hollywood’s finest celebrities dressing to impress, the absence of one star has confused social media users.
People were left puzzled when Rihanna did not turn up at the camp-themed event, as they were anticipating what she would bring to the red carpet. One excited Twitter user even said she could not “wait to be disappointed by everyone except Rihanna.”
To their displeasure, Rihanna did not make it to the carpet, leading fans to comment that the Met Gala might as well be “canceled.” Although she didn’t issue an official statement as to why she skipped the event, Rihanna cheekily confirmed a fan’s speculation, who wrote that the star was at home “playing with that f*ckin makeup.”
She took a screenshot of the tweet with an image of her wildly popular Fenty Beauty, confirming that she was indeed busy handling her beauty products. The post on Instagram Stories came with the caption, “met ball 2019” along with the shrugging emoji.
