Jennifer Lopez and Katy Perry experienced a bit of an awkward moment while in the bathroom at the 2019 Met Gala on May 6. Per BuzzFeed, the two pop stars had a bit of a run-in, as Perry changed into a seriously outrageous costume during the prestigious annual fashion event, which took place at New York’s The Metropolitan Museum of Art.
In a new video shared online, Katy could be seen changing out of her over-the-top chandelier costume which she walked the red carpet in to make another statement in a huge sparkly burger outfit for the after party.
Katy could be seen opening up the outfit – which had a large slit at the back – to place it around her body while she even rocked a large stick on her head.
However, as she tried to struggle into the ensemble while rocking a green leaf-inspired mini-dress, JLo could be seen walking into view after seemingly not realizing that Katy was having a costume change during the event, which had a theme this year of ‘Camp: Notes On Fashion’.
In her 1920s inspired beaded ensemble, Jennifer – who attended with fiance Alex Rodriguez – then made her way up to Katy and the person filming her while seemingly not aware that the person walking into the burger was actually the pop star. The person behind the camera then said, “Hi, JLo!,” as the surprised singer and actress made her way past and looked a little confused.

Twitter had a whole lot to say about the moment between the twosome, who have both served as judges on the American Idol panel.
The social media video was flooded with comments from fans, with some even calling Jennifer’s awkward bathroom encounter with the “365” singer during the 2019 Met Gala “iconic.”
Is anyone else fascinated to see a-listers in toilets ????????. Jlo didn't even say hi to Katy Perry, I'm in shock

Though neither star has officially commented on their bathroom encounter on social media, it seems as if both pop superstars had a pretty great night out either way.
But this isn’t the first time Lopez and Perry’s appearances at the Met Gala has caused a bit of a stir.
Back in 2017, Jennifer and Madonna were both accused of not looking too impressed by seeing the “I Kissed A Girl” singer performing during the fashion event two years ago
The Daily Mail shared photos of the twosome with some bizarre reactions on their faces as Katy took to the stage to perform the track “Bon Appétit” after a video of their reaction from inside the event was posted to social media.
However, Lopez then rose from her seat and began to dance during the rap portion of the single, which was taken from Perry’s album Witness.
