Cardi B‘s not about to let a massive New York City blackout ruin her baby’s first birthday party.
She and husband and fellow rapper Offset‘s daughter Kulture turned one a few days ago and on Saturday, the family threw her a bash in Manhattan. The venue was shrouded in darkness for a few hours when a transformer explosion knocked out power to parts of the borough…but the show must go on and everyone, er, powered through and had a great time.
“Hi guys, so I just wanted to say, thank ya’ll so much for coming to Kulture’s birthday party,” a hoarse-sounding Cardi said in a video posted on Instagram on Sunday. “It was so lit that I lost my motherf–king nail. Let me tell ya’ll something, ya’ll made it lit was the fact that I had got there, the lights went off in the party, it was like a whole hour with no lights, no music. But it was…lit!”
“And then when we got the power…turned the music and some lights on, it got lit again,” she said. “But with no air conditioner. So we was literally melting, but people were still dancing, having fun. And then the lights came completely back on. But then they came right back off when we was about to cut the cake. And then they cut the lights back on and nobody wanted to leave. And it’s ’cause of ya’ll and it was such a fun party. Thank you so much.”
Cardi and Offset posted videos from the bash, including clips of them dancing with their daughter. The theme: Word Party, a popular animated kids show on Netflix.
The party featured a Build-a-Bear workshop, multi-colored balloons, large floral arrangements that spelled out Kulture and yes, a large dance floor.
The birthday girl wore a multi-colored dress and received a couple of colorful birthday cakes. Guests also enjoyed multi-colored macarons, cake pops, cupcakes and other sweet treats.
Like many kids at their first birthday party, Kulture got to have her smash cake and eat it too!
“The fact that I wanted my daughter party in 42nd street instead of Jersey and to my f–king luck New York had a power outage right on that Deum area!! BITCH THE DEVIL!” Cardi wrote on Instagram. “But WOW how a negative situation turn into a LITUATION !!! Omg I had soooooo much f–kin fun and my daughter as well.”
“Thank ya sooo much everybody that came,” she said. “I know my daughter won’t remember this day but when she older and have her kids this will be a good story to tell lols. I will be daydream this day for ma long ❤️❤️❤️❤️. Ok I’m exhausted nobody hit me till like 2pm.”
