Cardi B & You Star Penn Badgley’s Friendship Hits New Milestone
The two stars later changed their Twitter profile pictures to feature each other. Even Netflix’s official handle approved of the budding friendship, temporarily swapping their bio to read: “Petition to get Cardi B to guest star in Season 4 of You,” which prompted the hip-hop artist to pitch a plotline featuring herself.
The following November, Cardi shared on Twitter a mock letter from Badgley’s character. “Hello, You…My stalking and killing may make me a certified freak, seven days a week, but it also brought me to…you,” it began, referencing her song “WAP” with Megan Thee Stallion. “Cardi B, you have a way with social media. You’re meaningful. Substantive. I just like you. You’re authentic and nuanced…just as you are with your music. You keep me on my toes, the ones that are left, at least. You can’t be caged in, and it’s refreshing.”
In addition to the letter, Cardi B also received a piece of swag—a hat bearing the words, “Hello, You…”
“Can’t wait to see you slaying in this hat, but I certainly hope you don’t disappear,” the letter read. “Au Revoir, Joe Goldberg.”
Gamble told Tudum of having Cardi as a fan, “Whenever someone tells me that an artist I admire has watched the show, I just get very excited. We all were so happy to hear that she liked it and not at all surprised that she and Penn were getting along on Twitter.”
