In case you missed it, Hailey Bieber just walked the 2019 Met Gala red carpet (opens in new tab) in a bedazzled thong and backless Alexander Wang pink gown. However, there was one person missing alongside her: her husband, Justin Bieber.

It's unclear why Bieber skipped attending the Met Gala with his wife, but it could be because he's working on a potential collaboration with Ed Sheeran (more on that here (opens in new tab)). According to his Insta stories, he's also busy eating some French fries and chocolate cake.
