Saweetie has shared a few dating tips with her fans. Last night, during an Instagram live session with her boyfriend, Migos’ Quavo, the Bay Area rapper told her female followers that it’s time to start demanding expensive bags from their partners.
In the short clip shared by The Shade Room’s Twitter account, Saweetie is straight to the point.
“If he’s not getting you a Birkin, if he’s not paying your bills, then that n***a is for the streets,” she said right before dramatically flipping her hair.
Of course, Saweetie’s message didn’t go unnoticed. Birkin bags became a trending topic on Twitter overnight, with both male and female fans hilariously reacting to her statement. Some are shocked by how expensive these luxury bags are, while others are suggesting more affordable options.
“Sure, I have Birkin money, but if I cop that that’s it, we gotta share the bag to live in,” one guy tweeted.
“Just seen the price of a Birkin… You don’t need me ladies go to the streets,” someone wrote on Twitter.
“Why are we discussing buying Birkin’s when none of us can afford it?” someone asked Twitter.
“Birkin this Birkin that. Bae you getting a Telfar,” another person hilariously tweeted.
The bags in question are made by Hermès and are some of the most sought-after accessories in the luxury market right now. According to Business Insider, a Birkin bag can cost anywhere between $40,000 and $500,000.
Named after actress and singer Jane Birkin, the bags are handcrafted from exotic leathers, with a very limited number of pieces made each year. Essentially, this means that purchasing one is no easy task, as Hermès also puts a limit on how many bags a customer can buy every year.
As difficult as purchasing them may be, that didn’t stop Quavo from gifting Saweetie with more than one Hermès bag this year. As Complex reported, the Migos member surprised his girlfriend with not one, but two Birkins for her 26th birthday in July.
The “Icy Girl” rapper seems to have been changing Quavo for the better. In a recent GQ interview, Quavo admitted that Saweetie taught him how to be a better boyfriend, as reported by The Inquisitr. In the same discussion, he revealed that he first found out about her through Instagram’s discover page. Then, after doing some digging, he decided to take the plunge and slide into her direct messages. The rest is history.
