Of all the folks we were rooting for at Sunday night’s Grammys ceremony, no win made us happier than Cardi B’s history-making moment for Best Rap Album.
Now, at least one young fan is hoping Cardi spreads the love. Ten-year-old Girl Scout Kiki Paschall went viral last week with her cookie-themed cover of “Money,” but while Cardi blessed her with several retweets, prior to the Grammys, Paschall was still holding out hope the big winner would make a big purchase.
“It was so cool that she retweeted my video. I was so amazed by that because it was really, really, really, really, really, really cool,” the California native told Time. “Still waiting for her to buy cookies from me.”
Not that Paschall needs it, since her remix garnered over 28,000 retweets and helped her surpass her sales goal. But she’s not done yet. Seeking to help her troop of 64 raise $40,000 to visit the National Museum of African American History and Culture in Washington, D.C., Paschall is lobbying the “Bodak Yellow” rapper to contribute some dough... for some dough.
“I love making music videos and I thought this would be a cool, fun way to get the word out that I’m selling cookies and to sell cookies faster,” she said of her newfound internet fame.
We love it—and if Cardi’s counting calories, maybe she and Offset just want to gift the troop with a trip. It’s tax deductible—and hey, 40K is less than one-fifth of what Migos brought along on their shopping trip with James Corden.
Regardless, it looks like Paschall learned a fundamental lesson in finances from the rap superstar:
All a Girl Scout needs is the money.
