Over the weekend, Cardi B and Rich the Kid each performed at separate bar mitzvahs in New York City. Rich the Kid’s gig, a performance for Howard Lutnick’s son, Ryan Lutnick, was held at the Metropolitan Museum’s Temple of Dendur. Sources say that the rapper was paid somewhere in the neighborhood of $200,000 to $300,000. For some reason, the Duchess of York, Sarah Ferguson was in attendance, too.
Cardi performed at a boy named Jake’s Bar Mitzvah, which was feted at Tao. For some reason, Jake’s last name was not provided. Moving along: Referencing her fee, a source said that the “Bodak Yellow” lyricist “wouldn’t get out of bed for less than half a million.” All of this is making me miss My Super Sweet Sixteen. Also that one episode of Sex and the City where Samantha Jones was employed by wealthy, hellish Bat Mitzvah brats. Cardi referenced the bash in her Instagram stories, saying that it was her first time attending one, and that Jake’s party, which shut down Tao on a Saturday night was “epic.” Mazel tov to all the various, very rich parties involved!
