27 Celebrities Who Were Totally Extra At The 2017 Met Gala

3 May 2017 by Johanna Teo

When invited to the Met Gala, you show up in your finest threads and take epic Instagram photos of course – and nobody broke protocol. From Jaden Smith bringing his chopped off locks with him onto the red carpet, to Paris Jackson actually attempting to eat hair, to the toilet gathering mid-Gala to the SelGo/The Weekend and A$AP Rocky/Kendall Jenner love-fest, it’s safe to say 2k17 Met Gala was lit. Pics or it didn’t happen, you say?

Kylie’s Toilet Times

Word is there’s a ‘No Selfie’ rule at the Met Gala, but leave it to Kylie to break the rules – in the bathroom no less. 

Flower Girl RiRi

Yes, that’s Rihanna – all resplendent in her floral glory. It’s been barely a day and there are already gorgeous fan art of Riri in her flower power getup. 

Blake Lively And Ryan Reynold’s Next Level Celebrity Moment

As if Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively weren’t already at the top of our #CoupleGoals list, this celeb couple went and made it on Humans of New York. Read the caption and weep! 

Selena Gomez & The Weeknd’s Extra Public Debut

A post shared by Teen Vogue (@teenvogue) on

Nothing says “official” better then going to the Met Gala, and posting a photo of it on Instagram. Bumping into exes obviously doesn’t faze ’em one bit. Is it us or does ‘Selena Gomez and The Weeknd’ sound like a band/collab waiting to happen? 

Lena Goes Meta

A post shared by Lena Dunham (@lenadunham) on

We’re sure Joe Jonas and Lena Dunham totally didn’t plan to coordinate their outfits, but this photobomb made sure the entire world knew of their chemistry. 

Screaming Madonna

Someone needs to tell Sarah Paulson that it’s rude to point and stare. Kidding, it’s Madonna. We’d do the same too. 

That Minaj x Olsen Twins Moment 

 

A post shared by Nicki Minaj (@nickiminaj) on

What’s good, Nicki? We’re guessing it’s hard to impress this diva, but when she is, it’s by the Olsen twins. 

Katy, The Lady In Red

 

A post shared by KATY PERRY (@katyperry) on

Met Gala co-chair, Katy Perry channelled her inner fashion goddess and summoned this mystifying creature to attend the ball. 

Blair Diddy 

 

A post shared by DIDDY (@diddy) on

Whether he’s literally floored by his stunning wife or he’s taking a rest on the Met steps, Diddy looks like he’s ready to join Blair Waldorf and her Gossip Girl minions. Now if only Blake Lively joined in… 

The Bella And Celine Dion Pose Off 

 

A post shared by Hadid News (@hadidnews) on

We don’t think anybody won, but props to Celine Dion for trying. 

Are They Pharrell? 

We’re sure Pharrell and Helen are the only couple who kept to the actual dress code. It looks a tad bizarre, but hey whatever goes in fashion right? 

Hair Today, Still Hair Tomorrow

A post shared by Teen Vogue (@teenvogue) on

Just when you thought Jaden’s locks were gone for good after his dad aka Will Smith chopped it off, he goes and brings it with him to the biggest celebrity event of the year. Not sure if his hair came as his date or as a fashion accessory,  but Jaden’s bringing a whole new meaning to “attachment issues”. 

Gigi Ain’t Born With It

 

A post shared by Gigi Hadid (@gigihadid) on

Unlike Jaden, Gigi was totally ready to go even sans her eyebrows. 

Cara’s Silver All Over 

Just look at Cara Delevingne sizzling in silver! Being able to rock a bedazzled silver botak look? That friends, is a mark of a true supermodel. 

What Are Friends For, Paris?

 

A post shared by @asaprockyvideo on

Paris Jackson getting snacky mid-way, and A$AP Rocky, the friend who’s helping her out. Hide your hair Jaden! 

The Legends Get Ready In Bed

 

Readddddy. #metball

A post shared by chrissy teigen (@chrissyteigen) on

Chrissy Teigen and John Legend are trying to bring #IWokeUpLikeThis to the next level. With this year’s avant-garde fashion reigning supreme, they might just have been able to pull it off. 

Keeping Up with Kendall 

Woah what’s going on there?  Kim’s kapturing Kylie’s Kodak moment of Kendall with her new man-kandy, A$AP Rocky. Looks like there’s another kouple on the horizon!

Updated Post Divider Ad_30th October 2017

We were treated to live performances by the heavyweight likes of Bastille, Halsey, Imagine Dragons and Queen at last year’s F1 Singapore Grand Prix, and this year’s edition is upping the ante with their newly released lineup of acts. So now you know what Ariana Grande, The Chainsmokers and OneRepublic have in common: F1 of course! 

ARIANA GRANDE

 Arguably the “vocalist of our generation”, Ari is finally making a pit stop in Singapore! Currently on her Dangerous Woman World Tour, Ariana will be performing a (likely evening) pre-race show on 16 September, following a slew of shows Down Under. We expect the late-afternoon sun to set gorgeously alongside her mesmerising vocals on hits such as ‘Into You’ and ‘Love Me Harder’, but here’s hoping she doesn’t water down her production value nor cut her setlist to fit the Padang Stage.

When: 16th September 2017, Saturday
Where: Zone 4 Padang Stage

THE CHAINSMOKERS

 

A post shared by The Chainsmokers (@thechainsmokers) on

We previously hinted that the reigning DJ duo would be headed to our shores soon in an exclusive interview with them, and now it’s confirmed that The Chainsmokers will be bringing their explosive live set on Day 2 of the weekend’s festivities, following the qualifying race. The boys have most recently embarked on their successful Memories Do Not Open Tour in the US, and if the videos they’ve posted from it are anything to go by, we’re seriously looking forward to screaming out every word of ‘Closer’ alongside pyrotechnics and confetti this September.

When: 16th September 2017, Saturday
Where: Zone 4 Padang Stage

ONEREPUBLIC

 

A post shared by onerepublic (@onerepublic) on

Ryan Tedder & Co.’s last appearance in Singapore was in 2013, which makes their return this year a long overdue and highly anticipated one. Coming off last year’s Oh My My album that spawned the singles ‘Kids’ and ‘Let’s Hurt Tonight’, the band will be performing at the Padang Stage on 15th September. 1R has also hinted at new music coming this week, so chances are we’d be watching them play brand new songs by then! Undoubtedly seasoned live performers with years of rocking out audiences under their belt, expect OneRepublic’s live set to be the #TGIF party that weekend.

When: 16th September 2017, Saturday
Where: Zone 4 Padang Stage

OTHER HIGHLIGHTS

Duran Duran
When: 16th and 17th September 2017, Saturday and Sunday
Where: Zone 1 Village Stage (16th) and Zone 4 Padang Stage (17th)

Seal
When: 17th September 2017, Sunday
Where: Zone 1 Village Stage

Lianne La Havas

Organisers have yet to announce Sunday’s festival-closing headliner but guesses are that it’s a huge rock band or pop act (The return of Bieber? The Weeknd?? U2? Linkin Park? Foo Fighters???) Only time will tell. In the meantime, you can find out more information and get tickets at http://www.singaporegp.sg/

Which act are you most excited to catch? Who do you hope will be headlining Sunday’s concert? Tell us in the comments below!

Talk about a K-drama come to life! After wrapping up Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok Joo (WLFKBJ), it looks our favourite swag couple – Lee Sung Kyung and Nam Joo Hyuk – has found love on set and is confirmed by YG Entertainment to be in their fifth month of dating. The ship has officially sailed, y’all!

We gotta say, as one of the many fans onboard the WLFKBJ ship, it was clear the YG labelmates were into each other from the start (according to Nam Joo Hyuk, that is). Don’t take our words for it – we’ve put on our detective gloves and dug out some heart-fluttery evidence that prove these two were obviously a thing. Can anybody say real-life OTP?

#1 Just look at the way they stare at each other

Either they’re really good at acting, or they really are in love. Those heart eyes can’t lie!

#2 They’ve made it IG-official (ish)

 

복주녕 Forever

A post shared by 남주혁 (@skawngur) on

It seems like their love for dogs is one of the things that drew them together. But let’s not forget the fine print – “복주녕 Forever,” he captioned, which translates to the pair’s on-screen couple name Bok Joon Hyung. Thanks for the hint, @skawngur!

#3 Remember this iconic scene?

It was actually an ad-lib! Instead of playing around with each other, Joo Hyuk requested for Sung Kyung to give him a peck – which she did without any hesitation! Can they be anymore obvious?

#4 ‘Cause one kiss ain’t enough

When you expect the typical K-drama fodder of totally fluffy, PG-13 smooches and you get overly passionate kisses feat a lil’ hair tug here and some neck action there (hide yo eyes, kids).

Oh, did we mention this was just a BTS shot?

#5 So much skinship!

Holding hands even when the cameras weren’t rolling. C’mon, need we say more?

#6 Find a man who’s clingy like Nam Joo Hyuk

Koala hugs all day, err day!

#7 We’re the perfect two

Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok Joo credit joowons 2

Couples that look alike, stay together.

#8 Always supporting each other

Proving herself to be the supportive girlfriend she is, the actress was spotted at her beau’s recent fanmeeting in Seoul – and the latter calling her out in front of the audience was the cutest thing ever. Try not to squeal while watching the clip above!

#9 Caught on a concert date?

The Coldplay concert was a star-studded affair with many top-notch celebrities in attendance, including our one and only Bok Joon Hyung couple! In a now-deleted Instagram post, Sung Kyung posted a picture of what seemed like a blurry figure of Joo Hyuk, who was discovered to be wearing the exact same orange shirt that day.

#10 Lucky I’m in love with my best friend

Aside from being concert buddies, it’s no secret that the WLFKBJ co-stars are already pretty chummy with each other even before filming the drama – in fact, they’re so close Joo Hyuk even joked that he sees her more like a hyung. Well… so much for bro-zoning her, dude.

Seriously, can they get anymore adorable? Just like Kim Bok Joo and Jung Joon Hyung, we hope Lee Sung Kyung and Nam Joo Hyuk will get their own happy ending too!

The Chainsmokers might come across as just two party-loving fratboys, but their ascension from the viral 2014 smash ‘#Selfie’ to Grammy winners in 2017 is proof that this DJ duo are also musical geniuses. We caught up with the dynamic producers amidst the whirlwind release of their debut album, to chat about bromance, famous friends, and a likely return to Singapore.

Hi Drew and Alex! Congratulations on the debut album Memories… Do Not Open. How does it feel to finally release this body of work?

TCS: Thank you so much, that’s very nice of you to say! It feels amazing, we worked soooooo hard on this album it nearly consumed us. It’s really exciting though, to be releasing something that’s just so meaningful and substantial to us. By substantial, we mean that there is a real message there and we hope when people are done listening, they have a better idea of who we are and learned something maybe about themselves also.

You guys once tweeted that you didn’t see yourselves putting out a full-length album and were going to focus on putting out singles. Why the change of heart?

TCS: (Laughs) Yeah we did say that, I guess we were wrong. There are three main reasons, one – our fans demanded it, two – the music we were making began to feel like it was telling a real story and they all felt like they belonged together, and three – if you only release singles, people can only get so deep into your vision and we really wanted to give our fans the chance to dive in properly.

What is one memory that you both would gladly open time and time again?

TCS: Good question… Probably the feeling when we were at Coachella and just finished our show, it felt like our team and us had really done something big, and pulled it off. 

It’s the year 2030 and ‘Closer’ starts randomly playing at a party. What is your first reaction? 

TCS: Turn that sh*t off ;)

You’ve collaborated with some huge names, from Halsey to Coldplay. Are you usually friends with these people first before deciding to work together, or does the friendship come naturally after the working partnership?

TCS: Umm (sic) it depends. In the case of Coldplay and Halsey we weren’t friends first, I think we were all just fans of each other, of course we are friends now, it’s funny when you are too good a friends sometimes [that] it is a distraction, like Ryan Tedder – every time we try and work, we just end up gossiping the entire time and never get work done.

Who’s next on your collaboration wish list?

TCS: Lorde, Kanye West, Dua Lipa, Khalid…

You guys are now Grammy winners with ‘Don’t Let Me Down’. How did your family and friends react to your win?

TCS: We were actually all together stuck in traffic and we all went crazy, it was a really fun moment!

How do you guys decide on when to have Drew sing on some songs and when to just have the featured artist?

TCS: It’s usually an easy decision largely based on the song itself and what the message is. If it’s something we feel like is best conveyed coming from us and deepens the context of the song, it’s a no brainer. It’s great when Drew sings because then we can perform it as well.

We’re sure touring consistently non-stop together can have its challenging moments. How do you keep the bromance alive?

TCS: Honestly we are super chill with each other, sometimes we have our differences but overall it’s all love. But Alex isn’t a morning person and Drew gets angry when he is hungry so we know to not [play around] with each other at those times.

 

A post shared by The Chainsmokers (@thechainsmokers) on

You guys decided that Tony Ann, a fan who impressed with a piano cover of ‘Paris’, will be joining you on tour. Why the decision to bring a fan along?

TCS: Why not? He is unbelievably talented and it’s a great story that says hey you never know what can happen, be passionate about what you love doing and let the chips fall where they may.

Do you both have any pre-show rituals to get ready?

TCS: No we are pretty mellow, we just like to get in the zone.

Judging from videos online, your live shows are truly explosive and something else. What are three definitive things that make a good live show for you guys?

TCS: Well its most important that we look like we are enjoying ourselves which we always are. Then you gotta make sure the show has its dynamics, you need lows to have highs, and you need an amazing crowd which we have been lucky to have!

You’ve played small clubs to now doing arenas all over the world. Which type of crowd do you prefer and why?

TCS: It’s always different, after a bunch of arenas it’s nice to play smaller shows, but if we had to choose, we would say big venues…. We feed off the energy and size…

What can fans expect from the tour?

TCS: It’s a hybrid show, we will be playing as a band and as a DJ Duo, so the songs that deserve more of a performance will get it, but we will still be able to go super hard and keep the energy very high. It was important to us that we not lose that level of production and sound as well… so we really went all out planning and working with an amazing team to bring a truly unique show.

We gotta ask then – how likely will we see you guys bring your tour to Singapore!

TCS: Sooner than you think. It might not be the full tour, but it will be something equally as special!

Updated Post Divider Ad_30th October 2017

On 5 April 2017, through an inconspicuous Instagram post, former Running Man cast member Gary announced that he had officially tied the knot. A declaration that took many by surprise, we round up six of the best fan reactions to his shock wedding announcement below. 

#1 It’s Surely Just A Delayed April Fool’s Joke… Right?

gary laughing

With the news coming just four days after April Fool’s, many fans were left wondering if Gary was just playing a prank on his fans. After all, there haven’t been any photos or reports of the rapper out and about with any other lady (besides Running Man co-star, Song Ji Hyo that is), much less one that he would go on to call his wife, which brings us to the next point…

#2 How Did He Manage To Keep The Whole Relationship A Secret?!

running man confused gif

He must be a ninja of the highest level for being able to keep this serious relationship under wraps! Bear in mind that this is a guy who has all eyes on him wherever he goes on a daily basis, but according to multiple reports, it seems like most of his close celebrity friends didn’t even know he was in a relationship, let alone that he was about to get married! Even his agency didn’t know about the relationship, adding that “[we were] notified right before [he uploaded the post].” Watch out world, Gary Kang is the ultimate king of keeping secrets. 

#3 Detective Mode On: Who Is This Mysterious Woman?

running man detective gif

From her name to her image to how she managed to capture Gary’s heart the moment they met, we’d be lying if we said we weren’t a little bit curious as to who the lucky lady was. Maybe it’s time to go “ninja-mode” and try to find out as much as we can about this mysterious lady.*

*Jokes aside, please refrain from actually stalking out the newlywed couple! While we hope Gary will reveal who she is in time to come, everyone should respect their privacy even if her identity is kept a secret forever!

#4 Props To Gary For Wanting To Keep This Personal Milestone Relatively Private

thumbs up gif

If there’s one major downside of being a celebrity, it’s that there’s a high chance you wouldn’t be able to keep your personal moments (especially romantic relationships) private. But we’ve got to give major props to Gary for wanting to keep this moment just for himself and his beau, allowing the both of them to enjoy the newly-married life without the intrusion from outside parties. 

#5 When It Finally Hit Us That Our Monday Couple Can No Longer Be

gary and ji hyo

As one of the longest running and beloved pairings on Running Man, Gary and Ji Hyo stole our hearts as the Monday Couple. With their undeniable chemistry and countless aww-inducing interactions with each other, many fans of the show wanted them to be a couple in real life. But nevertheless, it sure looks like this ship has sailed (much to the disappointment of MC-shippers everywhere). Is it just us, or is anyone else also waiting to hear what Ji Hyo has to say about the marriage announcement? 

PS: Isn’t it crazy how everyone had been shipping the Monday Couple when Gary was already very much taken? Yikes. 

#6 Ultimately Having To Accept The News, No Matter How Much We Don’t Want To

gary

No matter what emotions you felt when you read the announcement, at the end of the day, it doesn’t change the fact that the superstar’s married. He’s clearly in a committed relationship and is very much in love with his new wife, and as fans, we should want the best for him. Don’t worry Gary, we’ll support you even more from now on! 

In case you haven’t heard the news, check out the Instagram post below:

“I got married to the person I love today. There was no wedding, but the two of us became a married couple through our own expression. My wife is a non-celebrity woman, who shook my soul in a moment. Though there may be those of you who are shocked by the marriage news, I hope you bless our new future with a happy heart. I’ll live well and happily for the rest of my life. Posted by Gary.” (Translation courtesy of allkpop)

When it comes down to it, all that matters is that our oppa is happy, and we wish him all the success in the world with his lady love. Congratulations to the happy couple once again!
