Selfies & Social Media Are Banned at This Year's Met Gala

We won’t be seeing any fun, inside-the-party selfies from your favorite stars at this year’s Met Gala.

According to Page Six, The Metropolitan Museum of Art is cracking down on social media and phone usage at this year’s ball.

All of the guests have reportedly received notices saying, “The use of phones for photography and social media will not be permitted inside the gala.”

Some wondered if it was due to filming of Vogue‘s documentary “China: Through the Looking Glass,” but a source told the paper, “It has solely to do with guests’ security and enjoyment of the event.”

ARE YOU SAD to hear that you won’t be seeing any pics on Instagram?

    Simple reason: Exclusivity. They want this to be known as the creme de la creme of all parties. Wintour doesn’t want the peasants getting sneak peeks of decadence basically. But Wintour can never control the video footage release that happened with “the elevator incident” which will always be in infamy.

    Since The Met gala has been degraded by Anne Wintour since she succumbed to catering to the lower masses by continuously inviting Kim Kardashian and her half sister who now has two mothers. I couldn’t care less
    before it was exciting because it has people from upper class society. A group that we the masses knew nothing off because most of those people are heiresses, rich old money people respected and admired and wildly speculated on because they lead a cloistered life. Now they had amateur sex tape and reality starlet. Maybe I can forgive them for Beyonce and Rihanna. But Kim even if she attend it totally naked I COULDN’T CARE LESS!!!

    The MET Ball lost its savor when they allowed Kim Katrashian and other low rent celebrities to attend. Just because they have money it don’t always mean class.

    Thank Goodness these lame Selfies have replaced the continuous use of Me, I, Me, I, mine,My, me, I , me , me and I in a conversation. LAME !

    That’s what Anna wants it to be. You act like I think Kim didn’t ruin the reputation of anything associated with Wintour when I as well as anybody with a brain hates Kim. You’re funny cause I’m more than aware that the gala has been cheapened for the past couple of years. But Anna is eliminating selfies for exclusivity which is a fact.

    Well your funny too cause her eliminating selfies is her way of trying to pull up the reputation of the gala that she degraded and do you believed that she can prevent Kim by banning those selfies. The only way she can fix the met gala tarnished reputation is to BANNED KIM KARDASHIAN, KANYE WEST AND HER COATTAILING HALF ASS MODEL OF A SISTER IN THAT GALA ONCE AND FOR ALL.
