Everyone loves a good unexpected friendship between two celebrities, right? Lizzo and Chris Evans? Obsessed. Jennifer Lawrence and Kris Jenner? Also obsessed. Well, a brand new unexpected pair of celebrity besties has now arrived and guess what? We are once again OB-sessed.
It all started when Cardi quote-tweeted a viral clip of Penn doing interviews after the release of You season 1, where he praised Cardi's authentic relationship with social media and spoke about how much he admired her.
Cardi wrote: "OOOOMMFFFGGGGGG HE KNOWS ME !!! OMMMGGGG!!!!!!. Yoooo like I’m famous famous."
Cardi's tweet went viral and managed to reach Penn himself, who then responded to Cardi with a simple, "I-"
OOOOMMFFFGGGGGG HE KNOWS ME !!!😱😱😱😱😱😱😱😱OMMMGGGG!!!!!!Yoooo like I’m famous famous https://t.co/Z7MFQc2t2i— iamcardib (@iamcardib) October 17, 2021
Shortly after that brief exchange, Penn then changed his Twitter profile picture to an image of Cardi.
She then responded with a video of a young child asking "is that me?!", before switching her profile picture to a shot of Joe Goldberg peeping out the window.
The official You Netflix account even got involved, changing their profile picture to an image of Cardi wearing a blue baseball cap just like Joe. Netflix's main account also played into the whole thing by starting a petition to get Cardi to appear in You season 4.
Clocking their new bio, Cardi pitched a storyline about how she could show up in the next season, and honestly... it kinda slaps.
If you've already watched the end of You season 3, you'll know that Joe Goldberg ends up leaving the U.S. and moving to Paris. Cardi's idea involves her being at Paris Fashion Week, shutting it down, minding her own business, before turning around and... there's Joe.
Fans can't get enough of the interaction and apparent newfound friendship. One user has even suggested the two star in a remake of The Nanny, with Cardi as Fran Fine and Penn as Mr. Sheffield.
Cardi in You season 4? The Nanny remake? MAKE IT HAPPEN!
