Some Museum Donors Are Really Pissed That Famous People Were Smoking In The Bathroom At The Met Gala
I always forget that the Met Gala is more than just a night in which famous types get attention for posing in fancy clothes. It’s also a fundraising gala for the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute. That means the guest list also includes normal, non-famous people. According to Page Six, some of those normal people didn’t love being greeted by Bella Hadid’s cigarette smoke when they entered the bathroom.
No, the stress of pretending she wanted to be there didn’t finally get to her.
Lena Dunham has regularly suffered from symptoms of endometriosis and last month, she admitted at an endometriosis event that she had recently undergone excision surgery and was feeling good. According to People magazine, Lena’s endometriosis symptoms messed with her during the Met Gala on Monday night, and she ended up trading in her ballgown for a hospital gown.
A source tells People that Lena experienced endometriosis complications not long after arriving to the Met Gala. The source claims she was rushed to the ER for some medical attention. She was released after a series of tests, and she’s currently resting at home. Neither Lena nor a rep has said anything about her condition.
Having to leave a party because your body decided to hate you is never fun. But as much as I’m sure Lena was happy to get away from the obnoxiousness of the Met Gala and go home, I do feel a little bad. The only reason to go to the Met Gala in the first place is to watch people in ridiculous costumes attempt to do stuff while getting progressively drunker. Shame on you, endometriosis. You robbed Lena of the opportunity to see a hammered Instagram model stand in front of a toilet and wonder how they’re going to piss in a beaded body stocking.
Answer: Diddy gives a fuck, like a lot of fucks.
red beige and blue carpet posing portion of last night’s Met Gala, Diddy worked the cameras with his on-and-off-and-on-and-off-and-on-again piece Cassie, and at one point he lounged on the steps like a man casually lounging on a display at Forever 21 while his girlfriend gets in a long line to try on a pair of jeans. That little smooth move brought out a dozen “Diddy Don’t Give A Fuck” headlines. Au contraire, bitch. Diddy does give a fuck and that shameless spotlight-shifting whore knew what he was doing.
Cassie stood there in a field of humongous ass sea urchins, working for those camera clicks, as Diddly easily got the cameras to move his way by casually strolling to the stairs for a little lounging time. Cassie’s dress is covered with giant plastic caterpillars (or are those giant Groucho Marx brows?) and Diddy gets all the attention by simply lounging like an evil vampire lounging on a velvet settee while eyeing his prey from across the room. Diddy wants us to think he’s saying, “Oh, this moment is all about her,” but we all know he’s saying, “Oh, this moment is all about moi.”
With that being said, I’d probably do the same thing, because standing is hard. And also, that dramatic lying down pose really does show off Diddy’s “Steven Seagal spending a casual afternoon at home” outfit.
And now we end our never-ending Mess Gala 2017 coverage with several dollops of hotness provided by the dudes of the night including ASkars, Riz Ahmed, Rami Malek and Luke Evans.

There’s apparently been 69 (wink wink) Met Galas, but to me, last night was the 1st annual Met Gala, because it was the first one where Celine Dion graciously made an appearance. Every Met Gala before last night’s is now null and void. I’m not sure why it took so long for Celine Dion to grace the Met Gala with her presence. She’s perfect for that mess. She loves fashion. She isn’t afraid to make herself look like the definition of avant-garde caca’d all over her. And she doesn’t take herself too seriously. Oh wait, I think I just answered my own question with that last one. One of Anna Wintour’s rules for every Met Gala guest is: Take yourself VERY seriously!
Celine finally made her long-awaited trip up the Met Gala stairs last night. Celine wore Atelier Versace (or as Nomi Malone pronounces it, “Ate-leer Ver-sayce“) for her Met Gala debut. I give Celine’s “deranged bird from the 90s” look several gold stars, but I give her a billion gold stars for the tour de force performance she gave in Vogue’s video booth thing. Many guests did a video for Vogue, but Celine’s is the only one worth putting your eyeballs on. It’s the greatest reboot of Alice in Wonderland I’ve ever seen. If this video was available on Netflix, they’d have to create a new category for it called: CELINE! Because it covers several genres like drama, mystery, slapstick comedy, horror, film noir and beyond.
I think Celine is using that shoe phone as an intercom to tell the other Gala goers that they can pick up their little gift bags and skedaddle since she’s got this!
As if Madonna needed to physically show us how thirsty she is. We know, girl!
Every year, Madonna descends upon the Met Gala with more excitement than a clown who just snorted a line of crushed espresso beans. Last night was no different. Madonna showed up in Duck Dy-Nasty camo couture, swigging something from a canteen. Who cares what the theme was; Madonna wanted to do drunk Bass Pro Shops beauty pageant queen, and so that’s what Madonna is gonna do.
Of course, Madonna did disappoint a teeny tiny bit. I’m of course talking about the fact that her ass – arguably the Met Gala’s most frequent guest – was nowhere to be seen last night. Given the theme of her ensemble, she could have taken it further by letting her ass cheeks flop around behind her like two plucked mallards. Madonna’s look was done by Jeremy Scott for Moschino, so I blame him for that.
Just like Gwyneth Paltrow before them, Amy Schumer and Lena Dunham haven’t been too subtle when it comes to letting people know what they think of the Met Gala. Last year, Amy Schumer crapped all over the Met Gala when she claimed to have told Beyonce that 2016 would be her first and last time going. She also said it felt like punishment, and described everyone as being dressed up like “a bunch of fucking assholes.” Lena Dunham also claimed to have had a crappy time last year because Odell Beckham Jr. failed to hit on her (she later apologized for that).
