Cardi B, extremely relatable human, performed at Tennessee's Bonnaroo music festival yesterday, started twerking on stage, and accidentally ripped her sequin jumpsuit in the back. (I, too, have ripped my jumpsuit while twerking.)

Naturally, Cardi handled the wardrobe malfunction like a pro—changing out of her jumpsuit and instead finishing her set in a bra and a plush bathrobe (!!!). Fans praised the rapper for her grace and, well, just being Cardi and continuing to give an epic performance.

Now I'm just over here looking for a white bathrobe as plush as Cardi's.
