Jay Z skips Met Gala 2016: What we know about his distinct absence

Before the 2016 Met Gala even took place, everyone was talking about Beyoncé. She had released Lemonade, an album that is said to be semi-autobiographical, only about a week before, so everyone was wondering whether she would attend the exclusive annual event with Jay Z by her side. Only two years ago Solange Knowles attacked Bey’s husband in the elevator at the same event, sparking rumors of infidelity on the rapper’s part. Once Beyoncé’s explosive lyrics hit the airwaves, people were obsessed with finding out whom “Becky with the good hair” was.  Jay appeared at the opening night of her Formation World Tour concert in Miami, and E! News obtained exclusive pictures of them riding a golf cart backstage, showing that they were still a united front in the wake of the scandalous headlines. So Monday rolled around and everyone anxiously waited for Bey-and-maybe Jay to arrive. Celebrities and their designers walked the multicolored red carpet in their on-theme (or maybe not) ensembles. Eventually the “Sorry” songstress arrived in her latex Givenchy gown and everyone looked on with envy as per usual.

Becky Who? Rita Ora Is Not Becky With the Good Hair, as Her Met Gala Selfie With Beyoncé Proves

Ten days ago, Beyoncé's fans attacked fashion designer Rachel Roy for posting a picture that seemed to reference Beyoncé's kiss-off song. "Good hair don't care, but we will take good lighting, for selfies, or self truths, always,"

They ain’t sorry.
 
Rita Ora used the Met Gala 2016 as an opportunity to take a “family” picture with Beyoncé effectively ending speculation that she is “Becky with the good hair.” Ora, 25, snapped a selfie with Beyoncé, 34, inside the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City Monday and shared it via Snapchat, adding a heart emoji. The photo op came just days after Ora was accused of being someone Jay Z had cheated with, as Beyoncé herself had revealed in Lemonade‘s “Sorry.”Ora—who is Jay Z’s former protégé—denied being “Becky” via Twitter last week. “I never usually address tabloid gossip but let me be clear, these rumours are false,” the British singer wrote. “I have nothing but the utmost respect for Beyonce. Let’s continue enjoying Lemonade.”For reasons unknown, Jay Z did not attend the Met Gala with Beyoncé. Ora, meanwhile, was as a guest of fashion designer Vera Wang. “She is the best date!” the singer told E! NewsCatt Sadler. Ten days ago, Beyoncé’s fans attacked fashion designer Rachel Roy for posting a picture that seemed to reference Beyoncé’s kiss-off song. “Good hair don’t care, but we will take good lighting, for selfies, or self truths, always,” she wrote in the Instagram caption. “Live in the light #nodramaqueens.” Roy later deleted the post, but that didn’t stop the BeyHive from flooding her comments with bee and lemon emoji; some of them even wrote obscenities on her daughters’ social media pages. In response, Roy tweeted, “I respect love, marriages, families and strength. What shouldn’t be tolerated by anyone, no matter what, is bullying, of any kind.”

As speculation mounted that she was the “Becky” that inspired Beyoncé’s “Sorry”—if not one of many women who had been involved with Jay Z—Roy issued a statement. “I want to put the speculation and rumors to rest. My Instagram post was meant to be fun and lighthearted, it was misunderstood as something other than that. There is no validity to the idea that the song references me personally. There is no truth to the rumors. Consequently, online haters have targeted me and my daughters in a hurtful and scary manner, including physical threats. As a mother—and I know many mothers would agree—I feel that bullying in any form is harmful and unacceptable,” the fashion designer told E! News. “I would hope that the media sees the real issue here—the issue of cyber bullying—and how it should not be tolerated by anyone.”Roy did not attend Monday’s Met Gala.
