Beyoncé and Jay-Z booed in New York last night

Beyoncé and Jay-Z being booed is something quite unheard of, but last night at the Costume Institute’s “Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty” Gala at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, the couple was booed loud and clear by mostly angry paparazzi, who were furious because the couple did not pause longer for photographs. New York magazine’s fashion blog The Cut was the first to report Beyoncé Boogate, tweeting from the red carpet, “OMG Beyoncé and Jay-Z are being BOOED at the #MetGala for not posing for pictures! Yes, boo!”

 This comment was quickly reinforced by the site’s correspondent, who hastily explained, “Beyonce’s Pucci dress was so tight she could barely walk up the stairs as she failed to stop for the photographers.”

Camera-phone footages caught Beyoncé in one of her rare embarrassing moments, struggling clumsily to take even a few steps in her slinky black-and-gold gown. Her husband Jay-Z along with a handler had to assist her to walk up the stairs. Many bloggers says this is quite ironic, for she has just released a fitness song called “Move Your Body.” Here is the short video of the booing:


Beyoncé’s dress itself didn’t escape some heart wrenching booing. The Prophet blog uses words like garish fishtail frock to describe a “vinyl dress that looked like a Tina Knowles Dereon special straight off the rack at Sears.”
