Alex Rodriguez talked to Sports Illustrated about going to this year’s Met Gala, specifically all the famous people he got to sit with. A-Rod sat with – and I quote – “the black guy from The Wire” and “an Asian gentleman from Rich Asians.” Not knowing who Idris Elba and Henry Golding are is offensive enough, but if you ask Kylie Jenner, that’s not nearly the most offensive thing A-Rod said about his fellow table mates.
Along with Idris and Henry, A-Rod and Jennifer Lopez also sat with Donatella Versace, Kylie and Kendall Jenner. A-Rod described Kylie’s behavior as follows:
“Kylie was talking about Instagram and her lipstick, and how rich she is.”
To be honest, that’s actually a much deeper conversation than I pictured one would have with Kylie Jenner at an event. I guess I just always imagined her showing up, walking halfway up the red carpet before asking for directions, then cornering a mirror and spending the next 45 minutes complimenting herself. “Your lips are great. No, your lips are great. Okay but your lips are great. Aww thenk yewwww.”
But according to Kylie, she and A-Rod had a conversation about Westeros, not about her being an alleged billionaire.
Umm no i didn’t. We only spoke about Game of Thrones 🤷🏻♀️🤦🏻♀️ https://t.co/EnItnYlq0R

I wonder if at any point Kylie asked how much a real-life dragon costs before brushing it off like, “You know what? It doesn’t matter, I can afford it.” Because maybe that’s what A-Rod is referring to. Sadly, we probably won’t ever get that answer, because A-Rod has backpedaled on his statement. I’m not saying that an angry JLo whipped his phone at him and screamed to make it right before Kris Jenner erases their names from the 2019 Kardashian Christmas Party invite list. But I’m not not saying that either.

What a save. That’s the PR version of “Doctor, I slipped and fell on the cucumber.” Because not only is it 100% pure bullshit, but it makes even less sense now. Kylie says they only talked about Game of Thrones, but A-Rod says they talked about makeup. Was A-Rod even talking to Kylie or was he shading Kylie? Maybe A-Rod was drunk and started a conversation with two decorative purple throw pillows. A-Rod, feel free to use that one in the event you need a follow-up excuse.
