Last year, in an interview with Howard Stern, Amy Schumer criticized the Met Gala. She basically just talked about everything she didn’t like about the event. She also said she’d never go again. Now, a year later, Schumer has returned to Met Gala.
Amy Schumer attended the Met Gala for the first time on May, 2nd 2016. She attended the event just before she was put on the cover of Vogue’s June issue. Most people enjoy the Met Gala, however, Schumer did not.
During an interview with Howard Stern, Schumer talked about everything she didn’t like about the Met Gala and said, “I left not the second I could. I left earlier than I should have been allowed.”
She continued to explain why she didn’t like the Met Gala and talked about what she said when she met Beyoncé saying, “I got to meet Beyoncé and she was like, ‘Is this your first Met Gala?’ and I was like, ‘It’s my last.'”
Schumer also said,
“I guess I should be grateful I was invited or something, but yeah, it felt like a punishment. It’s not me and I won’t like it. We’re dressed up like a bunch of fucking assholes. I have no interest in fashion. I like the idea of coming up with a way to dress that’s more comfortable, that looks cool, that sounds good to me. But other than that, I don’t care.”
Afterwards pretty much every online fashion news site published articles about the interview. Then, rumors began circulating that Anna Wintour, Editor in Chief of Vogue and Chairwoman of the Met Gala, was angry at Schumer for her comments. It was also speculated that Schumer would not attend the Met Gala this year not because she said she didn’t not want to but because Wintour probably wouldn’t let her.
This year, however, Schumer has returned to the Met Gala. Schumer posted a photo (below) on Instagram of herself holding up a mermaid costume saying “#balmain #metball”. She was basically, as many celebrities were, implying she was attending.
The post was then published in an article on Vogue in which the publication lists the best celebrity Met Gala Instagram posts.
Lena Dunham and Gwynth Paltrow, of the many celebrities who also hate the Met gala, have returned to the event as well after saying they’d never go again. Dunham, in an interview with Schumer on Lenny Letter, talked about why she didn’t like the event. About 4 years ago Paltrow, who was the first celebrity to say she didn’t like the event, said in an interview with USA Today that she’d never go again.
Amy Schumer has not commented on why she has returned to the Met Gala.
Dumham and Paltrow also have not said why they have returned to the event. It has been said, however, that Paltrow probably returned because of her new magazine launch in partnership with Wintour.
