Selena Gomez skips Met Gala 2023, Here’s Why

Met Gala has always been the talk of the social media world when it happens every year. The outfits either please or dismay the netizens watching this biggest fashion night. And certainly, one name reached the top searches on social media, and it’s none other than Selena Gomez. No, don’t get fooled, nobody saw her outfit and in fact, nobody saw her at all. The reason why Selena Gomez is trending is: Why did she skip the Met Gala 2023?

Met Gala 2023 showcased first-time attendees and numerous huge names in different industries. Famous actors like Michelle Yeoh, Anne Hathaway, Ke Huy Quan, Pedro Pascal, and more join the list of actors and actresses present at the Met Gala 2023. Rihanna, Doja Cat, Bad Bunny, and Dua Lipa are among the other attendees from the music industry. Now, why did we miss Selena Gomez for the fourth consecutive year at Met Gala?

Why did Selena Gomez skip Met Gala 2023?

Unfortunately, fans have yet to hear a reason why Selena Gomez chose to skip Met Gala 2023. Gomez has been active earlier on May 1 as she posted a few stories on Instagram. She shared about Rare Beauty and Wondermind, but not an appearance at the Met Gala 2023.

But if we think about it, it’s probably because of her busy schedule. In an Instagram post last April 21, 2023, she just finished filming the third season of Only Murders in the Building. Selena has been known to be in New York City in the early months of 2023 for the series filming.

  • According to Elle, Selena Gomez was seen a week ago dining in Hollywood with her little sister.
  • Gomez probably left the city after filming and took a break. Well, we can’t blame her for choosing the time to rest for a while after a whole lot of filming!

Last Met Gala appearance of Selena Gomez

In 2014, Gomez walked her first Met Gala Red Carpet with the theme, “Charles James: Beyond Fashion.” As of this year, it’s been four years since 2018, and since we had a sight of Selena Gomez at the Met Gala event.

Her 2018 became one of the viral looks during the biggest fashion night. Selena and her team added a bit of a tanning lotion just before the event starts. She shared with Glamour UK about this beauty disaster. “…it looked beautiful – but as the night went on it kept getting darker and darker. When I sat down, I saw a photo of myself, and it looked completely orange. And here I am at this prestigious event – my first thought was – “I have to get out of here!”

She even shared a clip of her on the night of that Met Gala. Selena was seen running and leaving the gala, with the caption, “Me when I saw my pictures from MET 🤷🏽‍♀️.”

Latest update about Gomez

Enough of the Met Gala news, so meanwhile, Selena Gomez is currently linked to singer Zayn Malik. In a recent turn of events, the rumor started from a TikToker posting a screenshot from a conversation with her friend that saw both artists together hand-in-hand in a supposed restaurant. This stirred quite a rumor in the industry.

  • In the report, it said, “Selena and Zayn went out in SoHo in New York City last night at around 10:30 pm. They walked in holding hands and were kissing.
