Watch Cardi B Freak Out Over Meeting Robert Pattinson: ‘I Felt Like a Teen’
It looks like Penn Badgley has some competition for Cardi B’s affection.
The rapper shared her enthusiasm at meeting certified vampire hottie Robert Pattinson at a British Vogue event on November 4. “Look who I met the other day! I felt like a teen!” Cardi wrote on Twitter the next day.
In the video, Cardi tells the camera, “Come on. Look at my friend, guys,” as Pattinson moves into the frame with a smile and pokes his tongue out for the camera. Cardi B also gave out a little scream, as someone who was 16-years-old when the first Twilight film debuted is contractually obligated to do.
Still, you might notice that Cardi B’s Twitter profile picture remains a shot of Penn Badgley’s infamous You character, Joe Goldberg, and has not been changed to one of a broody Edward Cullen.
That surprise friendship began on October 17, when a fan reposted a video of Badgley talking about Cardi B while promoting the Netflix drama back in 2019. In the video, the Gossip Girl star praises Cardi for her “authentic” presence on social media, while describing his attempts as “pathetic.”
Clearly a fan, Cardi B retweeted the video, writing in all caps, “OOOOMMFFFGGGGGG HE KNOWS ME !!!OMMMGGGG!!!!!!Yoooo like I’m famous famous.” Yes, you really are, Cardi B!
Badley is less famous than Cardi B—at least if we’re going by social media followers. On twitter, Cardi has over 19 million, while Badgley currently has 551 thousand (which is not too shabby, but still). The actor was clearly surprised by the attention:
They took their Twitter friendship to the next level by making each other their profile pics and fans are still living for it. In fact, one hilarious follower saw Cardi’s post about Pattinson and went full Joe Goldberg on the rapper.
“I notice you had recently updated your status. To my disappointment, I discovered that it was a photo with another man,” they wrote, mimicking the tone of the serial killer’s internal monologue. “Surely, you posted this to make me jealous. The excitement you display in the video makes me question our relationship, but it’s okay. I can fix YOU.”
Frankly, this is what Twitter is for.
