The Met Gala is all about the fashion, sure, but there’s always bound to be some drama at the event — and we’re not just talking about dramatic looks. Here are seven things the internet is buzzing about on this post-Met Tuesday.
Cardi B’s entourage allegedly attacks autograph seeker
As the “Be Careful” singer — who just so happens to be very pregnant — left an afterparty, a man identified as 33-year-old Giovanni Arnold approached her to ask for an autograph. In video obtained by TMZ, you can see Cardi B say no, but he persists, saying, “I’m an autograph hound.” Video footage then shows three security guards allegedly shoving Arnold to the ground. He was transported to the hospital for neck-and-back pain and the New York City Police Department is investigating the incident.
Kendall Jenner’s non-shove of a handler makes headlines
A post shared by Teen Vogue (@teenvogue) on May 8, 2018 at 7:45am PDT
This is hardly something the N.Y. Police Department needs to investigate, but Twitter lit up when E! cameras caught the 22-year-old model giving a Met Gala staffer a little tap to move out of her way as she posed for photos. Some called it a “shove.”
Hey @KendallJenner, this guy was just doing his job, and yet you thought it was ok to push him out of the way so you could take a photo? Get over yourself!

Kendall Jenner pushing the red carpet assistant away from her from his behind at the Met Gala is literally the most infuriating thing.

Pretty much everyone else thinks those people need to get their eyes checked.
People overreacting that #KendallJenner “shoved” her assistant out of the way. No. People no. He was backing up, she was behind him, she placed a hand GENTLY on his back as if to say “watch out I’m back here” and he moved forward. She did not shove him.

I’m no fan of the Kardashians, but this much ado about nothing. “A shove?” “A push?” Hardly….https://t.co/TW75g0OgRY

But Kendall Jenner did tell Kris Jenner to cool it
Now this is something we’re here for. The reality TV star brought all of us back to a time when we had to deal with an overbearing mother. When the momager tried to adjust the back of Jenner’s off-white Virgil Abloh jumpsuit, the model whispered, “Mom, stop!’” according to Us Weekly. Kris Jenner confessed earlier on E!’s live coverage that she likes to wait at the top of the stairs to see her kids arrive. Kendall Jenner may have preferred for mom to keep moving.
Katy Perry and her 6-foot wings almost didn’t make it
The American Idol judge had some car trouble on her way to the red carpet. Who knew a vintage 1930s-style whip would have issues? TMZ got video of the car failing to start about a block away. The driver started to panic, but eventually got it going after a few attempts.
Blake Lively puts photogs in their place
The Gossip Girl star stole the show in an Atelier Versace gown that took more than 600 hours to make, so it’s no wonder photographers wanted to get the money shot of her gown. However, they were a little too eager. Lively had to tell the hordes of (mostly men) to “calm down” as they screamed her name. We get it!
Emma Stone and Justin Theroux leave an afterparty together
Webloids are really shipping these two to be a thing. The actors — who are working together on the Netflix show Maniac — left the same venue separately, but together. After making different exits, Emma Stone and Justin Theroux hopped into a waiting car along with Shailene Woodley. We hate to be the bearer of bad news, but these two are really giving off friends-only vibes. Although they have been spotted hanging out a few times in the wake of Theroux’s split from Jennifer Aniston, they are said to have only a working relationship-turned-friendship.
Shailene Woodley and Ansel Elgort delight everyone with red carpet reunion
Speaking of a great working relationship-turned-friendship, The Fault in Our Stars and Divergent actors posed for photos together, collectively sending the internet into a happy place.
