A star connecting with his/her fans is a great thing, but asking them to buy presents is slightly strange — especially expensive ones.
Such is the case for Lil’ Kim who is pregnant and expecting her first child with rapper Mr. Papers [pictured below]. The 39-year-old asked her personal assistant to share her baby registry with her admirers.
A message posted to the rapper’s Instagram reveals she’s registered at Tiffany & Co., Petit Tresor, Bel Bambini, Buy Buy Baby and Babies R Us.
“…Please make sure they check off your gift from the registry after the purchase,” her personal assistant tweeted. “Thank u guys so much #teamlilkim.”
The most inexpensive item on the Tiffany & Co. list? A $125 pink bunny bank.
The most expensive? Two Tiffany Sailor Baby Cups in sterling silvers for a whopping $575 a piece — and both have already been purchased, according to the registry.
(Note: A $9.99 Snow White bib and booties set is available on her Buy Buy Baby registry. She’s not all about the luxurious things in life after all!)
While most fans responded positively to the message, some called the musician out for being tacky.
“Do you really need your fans to buy your baby shower gifts? Tacky,” one Instagram user wrote, according to RadarOnline.
“She wanted to get her fans involve,” one source told the website.
Kim celebrated her baby shower on Saturday at NYC’s Broad Street Ballroom with a “royal” theme. She proudly put her bump on display in a form-fitting lace dress and was joined by her closest friends and family.
