Fyodor Pavlov-Andreevich made quite the entrance at the Met Gala, but it didn't get the kind of coverage as the reality TV toilet selfie. In fact, the artist had no coverage until security laid a beautiful drape across him and had him arrested.
Police said Fyodor Pavlov-Andreevich, 41, was dropped off nude and wedged inside a clear fiberglass box outside the Metropolitan Museum of Art along Fifth Ave. near E. 83rd St. around 8:30 p.m. Monday.
His two handlers left the lewd display in a restricted area for the star-studded celebration, prompting the Met's security team to quickly cover it with a white sheet and drag it out.
Cops descended on the bizarre stunt and demanded the lanky 6-foot-2 performer step out of the box. Pavlov allegedly refused and firefighters were forced to cut open the see-through prop, said Sgt. Brendan Ryan.
Looks as if he filmed it himself from inside, so let's hope that comes out soon, too.

From the Associated Press: The value of the (10″ x 22″) work, which was on loan from […]
For wine lovers around the world, it’s all about discovery. Once they get a taste for the grape, oenophiles are rarely satisfied with even the most carefully curated, go-to vintages. There’s always a hunt for the next great pairing, the thrill of uncorking a bold new Tempranillo or sublime Moscato. That feeling is a jones […]
These toys and games can keep the kids busy while you’re all trapped inside. As rough as all this time cooped up inside the house is on us adults, it’s even worse for kids. All that borderline maniacal energy along with an unquenchable thirst for stimulation and attention make home sequestration like a life sentence […]
Python is everywhere. Just look under the hood of virtually every major tech player of the 21st century and you’re likely to find a whole lot of Python-based coding language staring back at you. Case in point: Netflix. You may not know it, but from its security protocols to its much-hyped recommendations, it turns out […]
