Rihanna didn’t attend the Met Gala last night (May 6) and her Navy isn’t happy about it.

All Bad Gyal Ri Ri offered was tweet about Anna Wintour being the best dressed last night, and that, unfortunately, was just not enough for fans of the Bajan pop star.

“If Rihanna isn’t attending the Met Gala then cancel the Met Gala,” one Rihanna fan wrote on Twitter. “Really wish Rihanna would turn up to her own event,” another RiRi fan tweeted.

Check out more of the “Pour It Up” singer’s fans’ tweets below about Rihanna not attending one of the most fashionable events of the year.

The Met Gala’s theme this year was “Notes On ‘Camp.'” The Costume Institute’s spring exhibition “will explore the origins of camp’s exuberant aesthetic. Susan Sontag’s 1964 essay “Notes on ‘Camp'” provides the framework for the exhibition, which examines how the elements of irony, humor, parody, pastiche, artifice, theatricality, and exaggeration are expressed in fashion,” according to the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s website.

Below take a look at some of RiRi’s past Met Gala looks.
