Taylor Swift is one of the biggest names in pop culture, so her spot at highly-coveted events is definitely deserved and always worth swooning over. Throughout the years, she's graced the steps at the Metropolitan Museum of Art on the Upper East Side of New York City. So, why isn't she at the 2023 Met Gala? If you were hoping to catch Tay's arrival to this year's ceremony in a ~gorgeous~ ensemble but haven't seen anything yet, you may be begging the question — where is Taylor Swift, and might she roll up in a cleaning cart? 🤭

In case you haven't scrolled past countless clips on your TikTok FYP, the 33-year-old Grammy winner is currently on the North American leg of The Eras Stadium Tour, where she's performing 52 shows over the course of five months. During her tour, news broke of her breakup with Joe Alwyn, she reportedly headed to Liverpool to shoot a music video, and she was also spotted leaving Electric Lady Studios in New York City (perhaps new music is on the way? 👀). Needless to say, she's busy.

Taylor famously hasn't attended the Met Gala since 2016, when she rocked a platinum blonde bob and silver snakeskin cut-out mini dress. The coveted fashion event is also where she reportedly first met her ex, Joe Alwyn, that same year.

While Taylor's next Eras show isn't until Friday, May 5 in Nashville, she likely has a lot going on at the moment between alleged studio visits and music video shoots. Thus, she isn't making the whole place ✨shimmer✨ at the Met Gala.
