This is the reason Zendaya skipped the Met Gala this year

·1-min read

If you've ever watched the Met Gala you'll know the event basically belongs to Zendaya, Rihanna and Blake Lively. And yet, this year only Blake showed up. While it's kind of understandable that Rihanna might skip the evening, since she's pretty heavily pregnant and doesn't always attend, Zendaya seemed like a red carpet sure thing. So, why was Zendaya missing from the 2022 Met Gala?

In actual fact the star didn't attend last year's event due to scheduling conflicts as she was filming Euphoria at the time, and while we were gutted not to see her own the red carpet, we're diehard Euphoria fans so we get it.

But, it's not like that excuse will fly this year since Euphoria the second season just finished back at the end of February. So where was she?! Well, it turns out it was yet another scheduling conflict.

Right now, Zendaya is away in Boston filming for her upcoming movie Challengers, a drama following three tennis players competing to be world-famous grand slam winners since they were kids.

The project is being directed by Call Me By Your Name filmmaker Luca Guadagnino and will also star The Crown's Josh O'Connor and West Side Story's Mike Faist. And well, since the Met Gala is held in New York and Challengers is being filmed in Boston, it's a slight logistical difficulty.

Honestly, if she doesn't come next year we're going to cry.
