The Absence of Taylor Swift, Blake Lively, Rihanna, and Other A-Listers from Met Gala 2024: Unraveling the Intrigue and Drama Behind Their Non-Attendance

Did you notice a few of your faves were missing from the Met Gala 2024 red carpet? Namely, superstars like Taylor Swift, RihannaBlake LivelyBillie Eilish, and well, many more.

This year’s gala was skipped by quite a few A-listers and Met favorites, and their reasons for not attending the ball are super diverse: there’s a golfing injury, the flu, working late ’cause they are singers, and, of course, travel and tour schedules.

With these celebs in such high demand, it makes sense that there are some years they have to miss one of the most exclusive parties in the world. I mean, hell, even 2024 co-chair Zendaya took five years off from the event. But we can’t help but express our sadness that they weren’t present to turn a show-stopping look.

While details still unfold about why so many stars chose not to sow their seeds in The Garden of Time, below, check out a list of the usual, ol’ reliable Met suspects who did not attend this year’s gala.
