A$AP Rocky surprised a lot of people Monday night when he jumped a fence in front of New York City’s Carlyle Hotel before the Met Gala.
A video that went viral and was shared by the NFR Podcast shows people waiting outside the fancy hotel to catch a look at celebrities getting ready for the famous fashion gala inside.
The rapper, who was dating Rihanna and was expected to be there, blended in with the crowd by wearing a black hoodie and dark sunglasses.
The video then shows A$AP jumping over the barrier and taking off his hoodie to show who he is.
He then gave a cheeky wave to his stunned fans and walked into the Carlyle Hotel like it was nothing.
It’s not clear why the singer of “Praise the Lord” was there in the first place, but it may have been a PR stunt.
The Post has asked A$AP’s people what they think about it.
A$AP hit a female fan while he was jumping over the barrier, knocking her glasses off her face. The video went viral.
Some people on Twitter were not pleased by the musician’s unusual way of getting into the Carlyle.
A$AP’s arrival at the Carlyle confirmed that he and Rihanna will both be at the Met Gala.
With their first child on the way, the pair is sure to make an appearance on the red carpet.
This year’s theme is “Karl Lagerfeld: A Line of Beauty,” in memory of the late fashion designer who oversaw high-end labels like Chanel and Fendi.
