Beyoncé Skipping 2018 Met Gala Because of Jay-Z Trip

Beyoncé is no longer attending tonight’s Met Gala—but only because her husband Jay-Z presented her with a better option, according to Entertainment Tonight. She’s going on a vacation she found out about last-minute, a source told the outlet. “Jay-Z surprised her with a trip because he felt she needed to relax before her tour,” the source said, referring to the couple’s On the Run II tour, which starts June 6. The source didn’t say where Bey was going or when she left, though the location is likely far from New York City.

Beyoncé really had been planning to go to the Gala, though, and had picked a custom-designed gown by DUNDAS’ Peter Dundas to wear there. The singer’s last public appearance was with Destiny’s Child, at the opening of Dundas’ store in Los Angeles, so the dress designer hints were there.

Bey still could pull a last-minute surprise and show up at the Gala, which is hours away on the Upper East Side. Nothing’s impossible, but if the choice is relaxation in paradise with your man or working a very ritzy party ahead of an intense tour, can you blame Bey for choosing the vacation?

Bey’s sister Solange Knowles will be at the Gala tonight though—and she used some crowd wisdom to decide on her final dress pick. She originally had a poll with look options but ultimately closed it at 1 a.m. this morning.
