Rapper and Netflix star recently got in a Twitter lovefest that culminated in her pitching her own fourth-season storyline
“I can’t say because I don’t know,” Badgley said, with a laugh. “I actually don’t know, I’m not being coy.”
OK, rewinding a bit to explain how this whole Cardi B-Penn Badgley-“You” story began:
“Cardi B tweeted about you. She was excited because you mentioned her in a little chat you were having there,” Kimmel said to Badgley during their interview, showing a very excited tweet of Cardi’s, which was a reaction to a video of Penn complimenting her use of social media.
You can see that tweet, which was sent Oct. 17, two days after “You” Season 3 dropped, right here:
“And she used more O’s, M’s, F’s– you know, usually she goes with the M’s and the F’s the most, but the O’s and the G’s really shine through here,” Kimmel said. “‘He knows me!’ That’s Cardi B! That’s Cardi Badgley, perhaps, maybe.”
“That’s the first time I’ve gotten that,” Badgley said, laughing.
Kimmel then shared Badgley’s response tweet, which came after he changed his profile picture to one of Cardi B, because she made hers one of Joe from “You,” and it is, according to Badgley, “a thing we have now.”
“Why just ‘I-,’” Kimmel asked Badgley, referring to how his Oct. 19 tweet back at Cardi B (see below) is just “I-.”
“That’s an expression the kids have,” the “You” star said, informing Kimmel it’s what you say when you have no words for how amazing something is.
Netflix noticed the social media lovefest happening between Cardi B and its “You” leading man and got in on the action, changing the streaming service’s Twitter bio to say: “Petition to get Cardi B to guest star in Season 4 of You!”
Cardi B took that as her writing prompt to begin crafting her “You” Season 4 storyline, tweeting last Thursday: “So it’s episode 1 and I’m at Paris Fashion week shutting it down! I turn around and there stands YOU Ok finish it off @netflix”
Of course, Badgley wouldn’t tell Kimmel if this could actually happen — because he says he actually doesn’t know — but Kimmel offered up his own idea for a plot.
“You know what would be fun? Cardi B kills Emily in Paris,” Kimmel joked.
