Christian fury at Met Gala’s ‘blasphemous’ Catholic theme – Not “Art”

‘No other religion would be made fun of in this way’: Christian fury at Met Gala’s ‘blasphemous’ Catholic theme as Rihanna goes dressed as the Pope and Katy Perry wears angel’s wing

The annual fundraising fete in New York brings out Hollywood’s elite to celebrate the spring exhibit at the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute, with this year’s titled: ‘Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination.’

Pop star Rihanna created the biggest stir, attending in a short skirt, robe and mitre-like hat reminiscent of the Pope’s headgear.

Katy Perry – who met Pope Francis on April 28 – also drew a lot of attention by coming dressed as an angel, complete with huge feathered wings.

Social media users were up in arms over some of the more outrageous outfits – with some saying they had been left ‘upset and distraught’ over the choice of theme.
