I have no idea what the Met Gala is but I know that rich and famous people live for it. I’m guessing it’s a ceremony where people dress in Halloween costumes made from the skin of endangered species and take photos of themselves in between urinating on poor people.

If you need evidence of just how seriously famous people take this event, look no further than A-Rod and J-Lo.

In a YouTube video A-Rod dropped after the Gala, the 43-year-old revealed that he legitimately starved himself to fit into a customized suit J-Lo forced him to wear. A-Rod claims he is typically a size 48 suit, but the Versace suit being made for him is 44.

The 14-time All-Star was filmed wearing a sweat suit walking down a New York City street just hours before the Gala:

“You see this goofy suit that I’m wearing? It’s to sweat, baby, sweat. I have this crazy pink tuxedo that Jennifer and Versace are making me wear. I need to lose exactly 6.5 pounds. I’m taking two yoga classes, and I’m riding the stairs for an hour. I haven’t eaten in 24 hours. I did Sunday night baseball…I couldn’t even complete a sentence I was so hungry.”

“I used to exercise for big games against the Red Sox, now I exercise not to look fat at the Met Ball,” he added.

A-Rod claims that he cut out sugar and carbs as well as doing yoga in the morning and at night and going running in Central Park.

I’m going to have to hold my stomach in all night. I haven’t had steak in four days. That gets me really angry. I looked at myself last night at Sunday night baseball, I looked like I got hit, ran over by an 18-wheeler.”

“I can’t wait for an hour after the Met Gala,” he said. “We’re going to go down to the hood and have our best pizza. I cannot wait. I’m going to eat an entire pizza.”

The things we do for love.
