Lizzo was spotted happily attending Anna Wintour’s pre-Met Gala dinner this year after this singer took to Instagram Live recently to blast last year’s event for having “long queues” and “stingy waiters.”
The pre-bash was held in New York City on Sunday in Wintour’s private pad. Lizzo had a big smile on her face as she entered the venue, wearing a purple gown. She even posted pictures of her outfit as she drove to the event in her vehicle. Apart from Lizzo many other celebrities were also seen attending the event, including Kim Kardashian, Penelope Cruz and other A-listers.
Just hours before that, Lizzo went on Instagram Live and trashed 2022’s Met Gala last May. Last week the singer donned black Thom Browne corset gown. She played flute solo on the red carpet. “There’s a long line. I am taking the glamour away from it but it’s true. You’ve gotta wait. So you’re waiting and that’s the hardest part. I was sweating in a big-ass coat, my feet were hurting,” said the 35-year-old.
Lizzo went on stating, “They don’t have no chairs, no cocktails. I was like, ‘Can we get some chairs or some drinks or some hors d’oeuvres?’” She further pointed out that the waiters were “really stingy with the liquor” and had limited options of either “red or white wine”.
Lizzo also talked about her red performance and mentioned, “I had this plan to play the flute and do the whole intro (of a classical piece) but I got nervous and I only played it once because all the photographers were heckling me. They were like, ‘You’re putting us to sleep with the flute!’” remarked the singer.
Regardless, Lizzo confessed she enjoyed her time at the event. “This is like prom for celebrities. Now I feel like the Grammys and the Met Ball, they’re like my prom,” she recalled.
