In 2019, Lizzo attended the highly-anticipated Met Gala, an annual fundraising event for the benefit of the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute. However, the singer recently spoke out about her experience, revealing her disappointment with the lack of Food and tequila at the event. Lizzo’s comments have sparked a conversation about privilege and inclusivity in the fashion industry, raising questions about who is invited to the Met Gala and what level of access they are granted.

Lizzo Blasts The Met Gala For Lack Of Food & Tequila Last Year

Last year’s Met Gala was one of the most talked-about events in the fashion world. However, pop star Lizzo recently opened up about her experience as a guest at the prestigious event, revealing her disappointment over the lack of Food and tequila.

The Met Gala: A Brief Overview

The Met Gala, formally known as the Costume Institute Benefit, is an annual fundraising event held at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City. The event is known for its star-studded guest list, with celebrities from the worlds of fashion, music, and entertainment all descending upon the red carpet in extravagant and often avant-garde outfits.

Lizzo’s Disappointment

While many guests at the Met Gala are no doubt focused on making a splash on the red carpet, Lizzo had a more practical concern on her mind: Food and tequila. Speaking on the Breakfast Club radio show, the pop star expressed her disappointment at the lack of sustenance available at the event.

“I’m drunk now,” Lizzo said, “but last year I was so hungry, and I didn’t know I was going to be so hungry, so I ate before I got there. But, you know, as you’re drinking, you’re hungry again. And I’m vegan and all the Food sucked last year.”

Lizzo went on to say that she was also disappointed by the lack of tequila at the event. “There was no tequila,” she said. “I was like, ‘What are we, in a dry state?'”

The Reaction Online

Lizzo’s comments quickly went viral on social media, with many fans and followers expressing their support for the pop star’s frankness. Some even suggested that the event’s organizers should take note and make sure that there is plenty of Food and drink available at future galas.

Of course, not everyone was so sympathetic to Lizzo’s plight. Some commentators suggested that the pop star was being entitled and ungrateful, given that the Met Gala is one of the most exclusive events in the world.

The Importance Of Hospitality

Regardless of where you fall on Lizzo’s comments, her criticism does raise an interesting point about the importance of hospitality and making sure that guests at events feel comfortable and well-catered to.

Whether you are organizing a small networking event or a large-scale fundraiser like the Met Gala, providing Food and drink that meets the dietary and cultural needs of your guests is crucial. After all, nobody wants to spend their evening feeling hungry or thirsty – particularly if they have paid a premium price for the privilege of attending.

The Bottom Line

Lizzo’s comments about the lack of Food and tequila at last year’s Met Gala may have been controversial, but they do highlight the importance of good hospitality at events. Whether you are a celebrity attending a high-profile gala or a regular attendee at a work function, feeling well-catered to and comfortable is essential.

For event organizers, this means paying attention to the needs and preferences of your guests, and providing Food and drink that meets those needs. While it may seem like a small detail, it can have a big impact on the overall success of your event.
