Beyonce Poses With Rita Ora After 'Becky' Rumors, Hangs Out With A-List Pals at the Met Gala
By Rachel McRady
It’s clear Beyonce was living her best life on Monday night at the 2016 Met Gala! The Lemonade songstress hit the red carpet in a peach latex Givenchy gown that left little to the imagination. And though she arrived without her husband, Jay Z, (or her wedding ring), Queen Bey seemed to have a blast with the other A-list guests.
She was spotted schmoozing with her Obsessed co-star Idris Elba, the ball’s co-chair Taylor Swift, and her recent “6 Inch” collaborator, The Weeknd, who also performed at the gala.
The GRAMMY winner also posed with Madonna and Riccardo Tisci for the designer’s Instagram page.
“I love my GIRLS@beyonce @madonna in@givenchyofficial @metmuseum#greatnight,” he captioned the shot.
Bey showed off her goofy side with pals Nicki Minaj and LaLa Antony in a cute selfie, which Minaj captioned, “Lala made me post myself lookin a hot mess but I missed bey #MetGala2016 #DontHurtYourselfUAintF*nWitNoAverageB**chBOY!!!!! *side eyes all 3 of themN**gaz.”
And after some of the Beyhive speculated that singer Rita Ora was the “Becky with the good hair” that Beyonce references in her song “Sorry,” the British star Snapchatted a selfie with Beyonce at the event, which she captioned “Family” with a heart emoji.
And it seems Beyonce’s favorite attendee was her sister, Solange Knowles. The pair were spotted laughing together on the carpet and later changed into their after party ensembles, posing for photographers.
Solange stirred up some of her signature Met Gala drama, later tweeting, “Shout out to when you think you all ‘artsy and s**t’, but your just rude and annoying lol.”
In 2014, elevator security footage was leaked of Solange attacking Beyonce’s husband, Jay Z, at The Standard Hotel following the Met Gala after party. Many have speculated that this fight was about the alleged infidelity Beyonce references in her new visual album, Lemonade.
