She said last year they didn't have enough food.
This year's Met Gala theme is "Camp," so it's only appropriate that the Ball's red carpet moments, and fashions, are as outrageous as possible. Katy Perry dressed up as a chandelier and Lady Gaga was, well, doing all the Lady Gaga things, but we can bet you that no one there had chicken in their purse. That is, except for comedian Tiffany Haddish who channeled her inner "A Pimp Named Slickback" for her sequined, silver and black Michael Kors bell-bottom pantsuit, accessorized with a matching, glittery fedora complete with a feather.
“Last year I came...it was not enough food,” Haddish told PEOPLE. “I was hungry, and when I’m hungry my attitude is not good. So I said, ‘I’m gonna be prepared this year,'” she continued. “So I brought chicken...No I didn’t go to KFC. We don’t worry about it. See, Tiffany knows how to cook. I don’t know if you know this but I have my own seasoning salt.”

The actress also admitted that when she learned that the Met Gala theme was "Camp," she thought it was referring to outdoor camping. “When I first heard the theme, I thought it meant you wear like a wife beater and some walking shorts,” Haddish said. “But now I know that it means you are glamorous and over the top and ready to have a good time. I kind of feel like Patti LeBelle, but on some pimp stuff.”
“I’m feeling cute,” she said of her designer garb. “I’m feeling like a throwback pimperella. Holler at your girl.”
