Cardi B has achieved the dream of every tweenage girl between the years of 2008 – 2012: meeting Robert Pattinson.
The WAP singer and the former Twilight star were introduced at a party in LA recently, with Cardi proving that even the most famous artists can get starstruck when meeting their idols.
In a video shared to her 19.5 million twitter followers today, the singer wrote: ‘Look who I met the other day! I felt like a teen!’
The video shows the award-winning artist, dressed in black and with her signature long nails, crying: ‘Look at my friend, guys!’
Former teen heartthrob Robert then pokes his head into view, smiling and sticking out his tongue, as Cardi reacts just about the way anyone would expect: by screaming.
The fantastic clip has been viewed over two million times, racking up 30,000 retweets and almost 300,000 likes in just a matter of hours.
Thousands of fans – of both Cardi and the Batman star – flocked to the comment section, with many pointing out just how relatable Cardi’s reaction was.
‘Ahhhh I would look like this too!’, one person wrote. ‘I understand you perfectly.’
‘Cardi B continuing to live all of our best fangirl lives’, another said. ‘Look how extra happy and cute Robert Pattinson is in this!!!’
‘Every single person I know would probably react in a similar way to seeing Robert Pattinson’, another admitted.
One response, which went viral in its own right, simply reads: ‘she can fix him’.
The rapper is a known fan of Twilight, and sent the internet into meltdown earlier this year when she tweeted that she wanted ‘to have vampire sex’ – which Netflix then used to promote the Twilight moves on their site as part of a viral marketing campaign.
With his Twilight days now far behind him, Robert is now preparing for his first outing as iconic DC character Bruce Wayne, with The Batman set to be released in March 2022.
Cardi however is taking her career in an entirely different direction, as she offered to officiate actor Kal Penn’s wedding to his long-term partner Josh.
The Harold and Kumar actor, who recently came out as gay and revealed he had been in a relationship with Josh for 11 years, tweeted that he had a dream Cardi B officiated the ceremony.
Within hours, Cardi responded and said she was ‘licensed to do that soooo…let me know’.
Meanwhile, Robert’s Twilight co-star and ex-girlfriend Kristen Stewart is also recently engaged to fiancée Dylan Meyer – and celebrity chef Guy Fieri has agreed to officiate their wedding.
It’s hard to keep up with 2021.
