Playing Amy Schumer Says Met Gala 'Felt Like a Punishment,' and She Let Beyonce Know It

While the Metropolitan Museum of Art's Costume Institute Gala is an exciting night for many in attendance, it's not for everyone.

Amy Schumer, admittedly an introvert, told Howard Stern on his SiriusXM radio show on Tuesday that attending the swanky soiree "felt like a punishment" for her. "It's people doing an impression of having a conversation. ...I don't like the farce," Schumer said of attending such events. "We're dressed up like a bunch of f**king a**holes."

Schumer -- who wore an Alexander Wang gown to the Met Gala -- even let Queen Bey know that she wasn't thrilled about being there. "I got to meet Beyonce and she was like, 'Is this your first Met Gala?'" the 35-year-old comedian recalled. "And I was like, 'It's my last.'"

"I don't like it," she added. "I have no interest in fashion. ...I don't care."

While Schumer insisted that she's "not trying to make a lot of celebrity friends," she did admit that the friendships she does have with famous people (Jennifer Lawrence, Lena Dunham, Chris Rock, Louis C.K., and Jerry Seinfeld) are real. "Me and Taylor Swift, we just hit it off," she continued. "I dunno, I'm part of that world now."

One person Schumer loves spending time with is her boyfriend Ben Hanisch, who she now lives with. "I usually would go for narcissists who, you know, could never be happy," the Trainwreck star told ET. "[Ben's] just very supportive and loving and I think we're very proud of each other ...He is so far removed from this business that it's really nice."
