Lil’ Kim Is Asking Fans To Spend How Much On Her Baby Registries?

PUBLISHED ON 05/15/2014

In the land of weird celebrity news that fully deserves a closer look, mama-to-be Lil' Kim really set the bar high for her fans. She knows they adore her, but do they adore her enough to buy her not one, but two $7,899 strollers in both pink and black?

Let me back up.

Kim, who announced her pregnancy in February, is registered at  Tiffany & Co., Petit Trésor, Buy Buy Baby, Bel Bambini and Babies 'R' Us. Apparently, she had a baby shower on May 10 to celebrate her soon-to-be baby girl and spread the word that she was accepting gifts from anyone.

The rapper's assistant Instagrammed and tweeted a photo that she re-tweeted, detailing how to purchase a gift (from all price points) with this caption:

"@lilkimthequeenbee is registered at Tiffany's, Petit Tresor, Bel Bambini, Buy Buy Baby and Babies R Us under Kimberly Jones aka Lil' Kim or Kim Jones Event date May 10 please make sure they check off your gift from the registry after purchase. Thank u guys so much #teamlilkim Mail all gifts to Attn: Kimberly Jones QUEEN BEE ENTERTAINMENT BOX #25 Ridgefield Park, NJ 07660."

First of all, it's not about how much she's asking for monetarily, but the fact that she put the word out at all.​ It's nice that her fans could purchase Baby Kim a Tiffany Sterling Silver Baby Cup ($500), but perhaps a better idea would have been to tell everyone to instead send gifts or donations to a charity.

What do you think of Lil' Kim tweeting her registry to fans?
