Because none of us are rich and famous enough to be invited, piecing together the bits of what goes on at the annual Met Gala in New York City has become an event of its own.

Beyond the red carpet fashion, and the after party hijinks, we occasionally get a glimpse of what it is like to be inside the Met Gala. This year, we got a glimpse of what it is like to be inside the bathroom, thanks to pop star Troye Sivan.

A photo of the "Angel Baby" singer has been circulating around social media in which he shared that Rihanna allegedly asked Olympic diver Tom Daley to take a photo of Sivan while taking a leak in his sky high platforms and longline dress.


Sivan posted: "[email protected] told @TomDaley1994 to take this pic of me weeing ????"

Then Daley corroborated the story with: "TRUE STORY ... @rihanna told me to take this pic of @troyesivan"

So now we know that it's true, but why? If we had to guess, we'd have to agree with Buzzfeed's reporting on the photo. To put it simply, when Rihanna tells you to do something, you do it.

Sivan has been on a stylish promotional tour of his new song "Angel Baby," and it is nice to know that he is angelic and graceful even in the bathroom.
