The Met Gala is an iconic event celebrating fashion, history and culture. Celebrities lucky enough to score an invitation get to experience the glitz and glam of the gala. Still, there is one thing they don’t get to indulge in while attending the prestigious event ⁠— a lot of food.

At this year’s gala, Teyana Taylor decided she wouldn’t sacrifice her stomach to attend the event.

According to Metro, the actor successfully sneaked a Chick-fil-A meal into the event.


Celebs have been candid about how difficult it is to drink and eat at the gala. Most notably, Lizzo shared that there were long drink lines, and even longer food waits.


Taylor made sure she came prepared for this year’s event. Rapper Pusha T was shocked to find Taylor at his table, reaching for a Chick-fil-A meal that she somehow tucked into her Thom Brown fit. Usher, also at the star-studded table, peered over to see what Taylor managed to sneak in. The “Diet Coke” rapper shared the moment on social media.

“@teyanataylor is embarrassing me. She brought @chicfilausa to the #MetGala. I want her away from me… #Harlem,” he captioned a video shared to his Instagram Stories.

Another video shows Taylor eating as Usher laughs in the background. Tagging Usher, Pusha T noted the “Yeah!” singer tried to stop her from eating her unauthorized snack.

Fans loved and supported Taylor’s finesse on social media.

“Everyone always says the food is bad at this event lol I don’t blame her 😂,” a Twitter user wrote.

“And i would’ve brought Polynesian sauce 😭😭,” another wrote.

One user commented, “Well done! You gone be stuck there ain’t no point in being hungry!”

Another speculated Met Gala head honcho Anna Wintour would disapprove of Taylor’s snack.

“And Anna like…” they wrote with a GIF.
