Ooo, that look is fierce! Flawless. We cannot find a single angle where you do not look perfect. We just want to tenderly place you in our palm and devour you from tip to crust.

Wait, you know we're talking about that piece of pizza that dude in the background has and not about Beyoncé's Met Gala look, right? Look, the 33-year-old singer looked amazing but check out that piece of pizza!

It's glistening.

The guy holding the pizza while arguably the most important celeb couple (more important than Kim Kardashian and Kanye West? Discuss) of the night made their grand entrance was the real hero of the 2015 Met Gala. True, he probably started eating because Bey and Jay Z were extremely fashionably late and he figured his work was done and he could start chowing down.

Here's an insider secret: working a red carpet is a long and often torturous process. You are standing for hours and hours, smashed together with hundreds of people, and 60 percent of the time you are just waiting. Oh, and you don't get many bathroom breaks (if any) and you don't get anything to eat. So, yeah, we forgive this guy for scarfing some food the second he thinks the red carpet is over.

But we like to think this guy had that pizza all night, just waiting in his back pocket for Beyonce to show so he could mock her with it.

You think he's taking a photo of Bey's nearly-naked backside? Wrong. He's Instagramming the grease that's pooling in the pockets of that pepperoni on his pizza like any true American would.


"B, you smell pizza?"
"Yep, it's definitely coming from behind me. I got a nose like a bloodhound."

"Boom. There it is. Told you."

You might think that Bey is giving him the death glare for daring to focusing on anything else but her amazing body in that dress, but nay. We know Queen Bee is definitely just coveting that slice of 'za.

Texting his friends about the Beyonce sighting? Nope. You know what he's texting them about.

Met Gala Pizza. Which we hear is next year's theme.

We're pretty sure Katy Perry already has an outfit for that.
