Beyonce skipping the 2018 Met Gala has sparked the best memes

Two big names were noticeably absent from Monday’s Met Gala in New York – Lady Gaga and Beyonce.

According to reports, Queen Bey was originally supposed to attend but Jay Z ended up whisking her away on a last minute surprise trip instead.

“Jay Z surprised her with a trip because he felt she needed to relax before her tour," a source told Entertainment Tonight.

She was reportedly supposed to be wearing a custom designed gown by DUNDAS, with a designer working on the dress for weeks.

Beyonce’s absence at this year’s star-studded fashion soiree sparked a number of hilarious memes from fans who joked that she had come as the ‘holy ghost’ to the religious-themed bash.

Alongside a picture of a completely empty red carpet, someone wrote: "Beyoncé arriving as the Holy Ghost. Stunning!"

Another screamed alongside the bare carpet: "Beyonce is killing it on the red carpet tonight."

However, others were just left hugely disappointed they didn’t get to see their icon slay on the red carpet.

"I’m soooo mad at Beyonce for not attending the #MetGala," one fumed.

A second said: "Beyoncé get on my nerves lmfaoo how she gonba be out and about bouncing at Coachella for two weekends then be dead silent for the Met Gala? Lmfaooooooo b***h an album better be out THIS MONTH."

Bey and Jay kick off their stadium tour on June 6 in Cardiff before stopping in 15 cities across the UK and Europe. The 21-date North American leg begins on July 25 in Cleveland.

Beyonce also skipped the Met Gala last year, but made a grand entrance in 2016 with her nude latex Givenchy dress, that also sparked a flurry of funny memes.
