During an interview at Euphoria's FYC event on April 20, Zendaya confirmed she'll be skipping the Metropolitan Museum of Art's annual fundraising gala, stating, "I'm gonna disappoint my fans here, but I will be working. Your girl's gotta work and make some movies."
While everyone will be fighting to make the night's best-dressed lists and enjoying the hosting by Serena van der Woodsen and Alexander Hamilton, Zendaya shared that she'll be "playing tennis" in preparation for her role in the upcoming film Challengers.
She went on to wholesomely wish "everyone the best" and reveal that she'll make a grand return to the Met Gala "eventually" (hopefully sooner rather than later).
So yeah, Zendaya won't deliver a Met look this year. But, fret not, my friend. That just means more iconic red carpet style moments from the Euphoria actress, who consistently shuts down premiere events with her head-turning looks.
While I'm sad to see that the Met Gala will be Zendaya-less for the second year in a row, I can't knock a woman's hustle — especially one who can wear a suit better than a man. After all, the Met doesn't pay the bills, but her movie and show roles do (I get it, sis).
