Met Gala: Jared Leto
By Paul Anthony
I wan think about something here, how do you steal the spotlight at a art costume fund raiser? Well I think that is something we should ask Jared Leto that because for the second year in a row he is the talk of the town. Here we have it the 2019 Met gala, which is a art fundraiser that as we know it been around since the 40’s. Today it is where celebrities try to show off how artistic they can can dress and how they aren’t artistic. We have celebrities like Kim Kardashian and her sisters who want to use porn like dresses and call it art to the very Artistic Lady gaga. With that being said once again How did Jared Leto steal the show?
First like I mention Jared is on a roll, because this is the second year in a row, Last year when this event was going, he showed up looking like Jesus Christ in Gucci. It made sense because last year theme Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and catholic imagination. But this year theme was Camp: Notes on Fashion, which was a reference to Writer Susan Sontag’s famous 1964 essay which was called Notes on camp.
Leto showed up in a long sleeve silk gown which was diamond encrusted detail along the bodice. Now it was nice but it didn’t stand out, what did stand out was the decapitated Wax head that looked like him. Creepy and weird, I know right but that is called art.
As creepy as it is , I am glad he got to shine because after all this is a art fundraiser because when the Kardashians show up usually they take the spotlight because they have to be half nude and Now Kim can gloat about helping release 17 prisoners around the world in three months needless to say it was nice to see the spotlight taken away from anyone who likes to use sexual input to get what they want, Instead Creative and weird took the spotlight.
Each year this fund raiser does raise money, last year it was around 12 million but I can’t say for sure. What I can say is that they are predicting to raise 200 million when this event ends in September, which would be a new record. Either way we will keep an eye on this event to see anymore excitement comes from this. As long as true art keeps on shining we should all sit back and enjoy it!
