Los Angeles, CA, United States (AHN Entertainment) – Beyonce made foes, not fans at the red carpet of this year’s Costume Institute Gala at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York. With hubby Jay-Z in tow, the diva and the rapper/mogul found themselves getting booed by photographers.
Beyonce and Jay-Z made their entrance on the red carpet at the event, which also included appearances from Madonna, Fergie, and Jennifer Lopez. But they failed to pose long enough for the photogs to get decent some decent shots.
So the photographers started booing. New York Fashion Magazine’s fashion blog The Cut reported it first, tweeting, “OMG Beyonce and Jay-Z are being BOOED at the #MetGala for not posing for pictures! Yes, boo!”
A video of the incident has already made its way online, showing photographers angrily booing, and another even asking, “What are you doing?”
Beyonce was wearing a Pucci gown with gold detailing, and, to add insult to ego injury, couldn’t seem to walk much in the form-fitting dress. “Beyonce’s Pucci dress was so tight she could barely walk up the stairs as she failed to stop for the photographers. #MetGala”,” The Cut tweeted.
Her sister, Solange Knowles, followed, and photographers decided to protest Beyonce’s snub by not snapping pictures of her less-famous sister. “Don’t shoot her. She can tell her sister,” photogs reportedly shouted.
Beyonce might need to step out in front of the cameras more often. Her new single, “Run the World (Girls),” is all the way down to #51 on iTunes.
