Taylor Swift Opts Out of 2024 Met Gala to Prioritize European Tour Preparations

Taylor Swift’s absence from the 2024 Met Gala has been confirmed, as she shifts her focus to rehearsals and tour preparations for her upcoming European leg, starting May 9 in Paris.

The decision comes amidst the buzz surrounding her recent album release, “The Tortured Poets Department.” Despite initial speculations of her attendance, the 34-year-old songstress is prioritizing her Eras Tour, which will take her across Europe throughout spring and summer.

TMZ previously reported that Taylor Swift, along with her boyfriend, Kansas City Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce, would not grace the Met Gala this year. While Swift has attended the event six times, her partner has yet to make his debut.

Although Swift’s absence will leave a “blank space” at the Met Gala, the event is expected to draw fashion heavyweights. This year’s theme, “Sleeping Beauties: Reawakening Fashion,” promises to be an ode to nature and emotional poetics in fashion. With a dress code themed “The Garden of Time,” stars are expected to pay homage to florals, music, and time itself, as inspired by J.G. Ballard’s 1962 short story.

Leading the event as co-chairs are Zendaya, Jennifer Lopez, Chris Hemsworth, and Bad Bunny. While some attendees are still finalizing their looks, the anticipation for the gala remains high. Jennifer Lopez, a five-time attendee, disclosed to Vogue that she’s still deciding among a few sketches, emphasizing the significance of creating an unforgettable look for the prestigious night.
