Since When Does The Met Gala Have More PDA Than A High School Prom?

Now, I'm all about the Met Gala because I love celebrities, fancy clothes, and witnessing the wicked brilliance of Anna Wintour. This year, however, there was a special extra element added to the glitz and glamour of the famous event . No, I'm not talking about the abundance of Instagram Husbands (which was a treat). Or even the illegal bathroom selfie. I'm talking about the coming out party for three major celebrity couples: Selena Gomez and The Weekend (Abel Tesafaye), Kendall Jenner and A$AP Rocky (Rakim Mayers), and Jennifer Lopez and A-Rod (Alex Rodriguez). Side note: Single guys, get yourself a good nickname.
I don't know if it's the flash of the photographer's lights, or the buzzy excitement surrounding the Metropolitan Museum of Art itself, or the pressure to seem like a fresh, new, blissful couple, but each of these duos really did the most in terms of PDA. On a night where we're usually most excited to see the roundups of the wildest behind-the-scene moments or the wildest outfits, this year we were given the gift of love.

Kendall Jenner & A$AP Rocky

So, these two lovebirds have been teasing a relationship for what feels like forever now, but their flirty behavior did not go undetected (for the millionth time). Even if these two are trying to keep their relationship under wraps, they couldn't hide their elated smiles and giggles while leaving the event together.

Selena Gomez & The Weeknd

These two were attached at the hip from the moment they stepped out of their car, to their dinner inside, and then as they left. To make things completely and utterly transparent about the state of their happiness, they were kissing and touching each other in every single photo. (They're totally in the honeymoon phase, but it's pretty damn adorable.) It was a grand reveal for the ages, and nearly made us forget that he did the same thing with Bella Hadid last year.

Alex Rodriguez & Jennifer Lopez

Finally! I am so here for this couple (especially since it proves my point that the Drake + J.Lo affair was all for a song and music video which is... yet to be released). Lopez looked ethereal in her baby blue gown, while A-Rod looked dapper AF in his sharp suit. He even was her fill-in paparazzi!

Prom King and Queen for sure.
