Apparently, the over-the top costume gowns weren't the only drama at Monday night's Met Gala. Nicki Minaj posted (and later deleted) an Instagram photo of herself on the event's red carpet along with designer Jeremy Scott. An awkward-looking Demi Lovato has wandered into the picture, blinded by the laser beams of pure hatred shooting out of Minaj's expert side-eye.
The "Anaconda" singer tagged both Scott and Lovato in the Instagram. Lovato posted some emojis (laughing, peace sign, thumbs up).
Minaj deleted that photo, but she left up another, very similar one, with both Scott and Lovato, but minus the side-eye, and minus the tag for Lovato (basically acting as though Lovato weren't in the picture).
The omission of Lovato's name made some people wonder if there was some kind of secret beef (your new band name) between the two singers. But Lovato reposted the original photo to her own account and wrote in the caption:
This picture pretty much summed up my first and probably last met #cool #sofuckingawkward #notforme#sweatpants #forensicfiles #whatsgood p.s. some of y'all need to learn how to take a joke.. I'm obviously laughing at the fact that 1. I look incredibly awkward and 2. That the shade being thrown in this picture actually gives me life
Seems like pretty low key drama, if anything. Nicki looks like this at everyone who crosses her path. This is just her default expression—pure, perfect, wonderful disdain. But Demi, Nicki throwing more shade at you than an entire forest is going to be giving a lot of people life. There are hospitals using this photo right now instead of blood transfusions. Oh, and get ready to be memed like you've never been memed before.
