Met Gala 2021: Frank Ocean arrives with green robotic baby, Internet is 'terrified'
Social media users could not help but talk about Frank Ocean’s accessory for the Met Gala
Frank Ocean rarely steps out in public and a red carpet appearance always seems a distant dream for his loyal fans. However, much to everyone’s surprise, the ‘Blonde’ hitmaker marked his attendance at the Met Gala 2021 edition held at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City.
The California native did not come alone to the charity event. No, he was not with a woman but a baby, and that too, a little creepy robotic green alien. Social media users could not help but talk about Ocean’s new accessory for the high-rise fashion event. A majority of them got terrified as they trolled the 33-year-old singer-songwriter and rapper.
Frank Ocean makes rare appearance
Frank Ocean opted for a minimal look for the latest Met Gala event. The crooner picked a Dreamcore cap that covered his neon-green hair. He donned a black Prada jacket with a white shirt and teamed it up with a neckpiece from his independent luxury brand Homer. Speaking about the theme of this year’s Met Gala i.e. ‘In America: A Lexicon of Fashion’, Ocean stated, “In America... I feel like we do kinda make, set some trends in general, especially in music.”
Ocean happily posed for photos while wearing the baby on his hip. The robotic puppet even waved to the crowd which terrified the social media users. The robotic green baby came with sparkling grills and donned a galactic-printed onesie. Frank Ocean weirdly treated the robot as if it were a real baby. While speaking to the host Keke Palmer, Ocean said, “He’s starstruck, I’m starstruck.”
Well, this is not the first time when the Internet called out an act weird as in 2017, Jaden Smith got his freshly cut dreadlocks to the Met Gala and he got the same treatment as Ocean’s.
‘Slightly terrified by Frank Ocean's green bebe’
Social media had a hard time digesting the fact that Frank Ocean pulled off a weird act. One user stated, ”Like always, this is Frank Oceans met gala, those other mfs just there.” Another shared, “They need to stop inviting Frank Ocean to the Met Gala.” Whereas, one symbolically referred the green baby robot to Ocean’s late brother saying, “What if frank ocean brought that fake baby to the met gala it was symbolizing his brother.”
The next one added, “Nobody think it’s weird that @LilNasX was pregnant and frank ocean showed up to the Met Gala w a baby.” One user tweeted, “I don’t follow the met gala but from my understanding it was like American themed and frank ocean brought a green baby and Niki Minaj talked about the vaccine giving you bigger balls?? And AOC wore a dress that nobody can make a coherent take about?? Idek. Celeb culture is weird.” Meanwhile, another chimed in and added, “Slightly terrified by Frank Ocean's green bebe, but dad vibe is *chef's kiss*” One claimed, “That baby is disturbing” as another concluded, “I thought he was holding a baby. I got such a fright when he turned around.”
