Beyoncé Ditched The MET Gala In Favor Of A Baecation With Jay Z

Queen Bey NOT showing up gave the internet the best memes of the night.

Published May 8, 2018

“Why Beyoncé didn’t attend the 2018 Met Gala?” was the question on everyone’s mind last night. Well, the superstar wasn’t throwing shade at fashion’s biggest night at all by not showing up. Instead she’s relaxing with Jay Z on a beach somewhere before their upcoming joint tour. Entertainment Tonight reports, that rapper whisked his wife away for a baecation fit for the Queen she is before  their joint tour On The Run II.

“JAY-Z surprised her with a trip because he felt she needed to relax before her tour," E.T.'s source said. The internet missed the Queen Bey A LOT and didn’t keep quiet about it. In fact, the Beyhive has spoken and says Bey’s been giving the "Heavenly Bodies” theme life all damn year serving lewks a the 2017 Grammys continuing into her  #Beychella performances.

Case and point…

You can always count on the internet to make anything—even something that didn’t happen—into a meme-able moment.
