Selena Gomez may have spent part of last week in New York City, but she didn’t stick around for the Met Gala this evening. Gomez’s makeup artist Hung Vanngo confirmed over the weekend that Gomez will not be at the event tonight. Gomez was photographed at JFK airport, returning to Los Angeles on Thursday morning. She also appeared on a friend’s Instagram Story playing laser tag yesterday.
