NEW YORK, NEW YORK - MAY 01: Jack Harlow attends The 2023 Met Gala Celebrating "Karl Lagerfeld: A Line Of Beauty" at The Metropolitan Museum of Art on May 01, 2023 in New York City.

Jack Harlow allegedly was not trying to talk to the press last night during the Met Gala. According to a New York Times reporter, Harlow allegedly mouthed “I’m on shrooms” to the press who tried to speak with him.

Fans don’t think the rapper actually was on “shrooms.” Harlow has been an advocate for sobriety for a couple of years now but his fans think that he used it as an excuse for not wanting to talk to the press.

In 2021, he announced that he “hasn’t had a sip of alcohol” that year. “Going the rest of the year without it. Maybe I’ll never take another sip, who knows?” he wrote.

He added: “My favorite vice was definitely drinking (I don’t like to smoke) but if I learned anything this year it’s that I don’t need it. I don’t usually say a lot in my captions because it feels like anything worth telling y’all I should just put in my songs…but today felt like a good time for a life update. I’m really grateful for how far we’ve come and I want you to know I appreciate all of you. But I’m hungrier right now than I’ve ever been. I’m prepared to become a well-oiled machine to take this shit to the next level. See you soon.”

Harlow’s Met Gala appearance follows the recent release of the rapper’s album Jackman. The 10 track-LP is the Kentucky native’s third studio album which dropped Friday (April 28).

The rapper named the album after his full first name, which is, in fact, Jackman. The project is only 24 minutes and is the definition of a solo effort since the “First Class” rapper did not have any featured artist on the album.

The album came as a complete surprise to fans as Harlow announced the project just two days before the release date. He dropped the announcement on social media with the album artwork featuring a shirtless Jack.

The rapper just dropped the visual for “They Don’t Love It” Monday (May 1). Check it out below:
