Idris Elba Says Met Gala Was Awkward Because of Taylor Swift & Kanye West's 'Beef'

Idris Elba co-hosted the 2016 Met Gala with Taylor Swift, and spoke about her ongoing feud with Kanye West and how it affected the night.

In a game of “Confirm or Deny” with the New York Times, he was asked if co-hosting the Met Gala was the most stressful night of his life.

“Deny. It was great. I felt really famous that day,” Idris told the publication.

“It was a bit awkward because Taylor Swift and I had to present an award. We were walking through the crowd and obviously, there was a little beef between Taylor and Kanye. I didn’t know any of this. But I was there! And I was, like, ‘Oh, this is awks,’” he added.

If you don’t know, Kanye and Taylor‘s feud has gone back years. It started when Kanye interrupted Taylor‘s acceptance speech at the 2009 VMAs, and continued with the drama surrounding his 2016 song “Famous.” You’ll remember, Kim Kardashian released full audio of their conversation.

Stephen King Explains Where 'Dark Tower' Movie Went Wrong

The Dark Tower, starring Idris Elba and Matthew McConaughey, hit theaters in August and though it was highly anticipated, it was not well received with the critics.

In addition, the film only made $50,372,805 domestically to date and had a reported budget of $60 million.

The book’s author, Stephen King, spoke about why he believes the film didn’t work well.

“The major challenge was to do a film based on a series of books that’s really long, about 3,000 pages. The other part of it was the decision to do a PG-13 feature adaptation of books that are extremely violent and deal with violent behavior in a fairly graphic way,” Stephen told Vulture. “That was something that had to be overcome, although I’ve gotta say, I thought [screenwriter] Akiva Goldsman did a terrific job in taking a central part of the book and turning it into what I thought was a pretty good movie. The TV series they’re developing now … we’ll see what happens with that. It would be like a complete reboot, so we’ll just have to see.
