The show must go on, or so they say—and Cardi B’s never been one to shy away from a big reveal (see: her pregnancy announcement last year). So, when the rear zipper of Cardi’s bedazzled, multicolored catsuit couldn’t take the well-rounded pressure of holding for the entirety of her set at Bonnaroo on Sunday, the entertainer and her team had to think fast. (Maybe it was the twerking? Or the awkward jump from the stage? Either way, it was a literal Invasion of Privacy.)


As Uproxx reports, the star kept the beat going by quickly changing into a bathrobe from the Palms Las Vegas (a long way from Tennessee, but I digress).

“We gonna keep it moving, baby. We gonna keep it sexy. I don’t know how in this fucking robe, but we gonna do it!” Cardi told the crowd.

And while she may not be everyone’s fave, you can’t knock the hustle. The platinum-selling artist and working mom, who recently had to cancel several shows following complications from plastic surgery, was determined not to let the crowd down, choosing to finish her set strong—even in white terrycloth.
