This week made a year since Kim flew out about 17 fans to LA to celebrate her 35th birthday! I’m gonna give you guys a run down on how it all went down!
So during the summer of last year, Kim kept hinting at a surprise that she had coming for her fans on Twitter. Everyone was trying to guess what it was, but Kim kept it a secret. That August, Kim came to NOLA for my 21st birthday and we had brunch together. I asked her what was the surprise and she told me that the surprise was that she’s flying out all the fans she follows on her social media to LA for her birthday. I was like what….? She was just like “Yep.” I WAS SHOOK!!
Kim started DM’ing her fans and asking for their emails and telling them about her birthday plans. A lot her fans started DM’ing me asking me was it real and I was like “Yasss!!!! It’s real! That’s the surprise!”
We had to keep everything secret until the day of the brunch, which was nothing new to me. I always had to keep stuff a secret. lol The day of the trip came and I was super excited to see Kim again of course and to finally meet my Twitter fam!
When I landed I met Jennifer and Noah. Me and Noah instantly clicked. That’s the homie now! A lot of us got in a van together to take us to the hotel. I can’t remember who else was in the van with me, but it was a few us!
After sitting through LA traffic, we finally arrived to the Four Seasons Hotel. It was beautiful! We checked in and I went to my room. Kim had these gift baskets waiting for us with a hand written note and dope gifts included. I was exhausted and I had hella midterms to study for. As soon as I started studying, I got a message from Hali to meet up in her room. I studied a little more then I went to meet everyone else. We all were so turnt to see each other. We walked to In and Out and hung out that night. It was SO much fun. We felt like family!
The next day was the brunch. I was late, of course, because I tried to iron my shirt, which was still wrinkled af by the way. I suck at adulting. When I got down, everyone was already down stairs in the little patio area waiting for Kim to arrive. Pascal talked to everyone giving us a little pep talk. He was like “Kim is really sweet. No need to be nervous. Myleeza can tell you all first hand how sweet and calm she is.” I was like “Yeah, ya’ll no need to worry.”
Anyway, they told us we could come in. So we were all standing there talking and in walked Kim. Everyone lost their shit! I was so happy to see all of their expressions. People started crying and screaming and I just stood their smiling. It was a beautiful scene. We took a group pic then took individual pics.
We were seated then started eating. I bought her a beignet kit straight from Cafe du Monde in NOLA. She loved it! I sat at the table with Kim. I was sitting right by Z from Team Kanye Daily. I tried not to talk so much, because I’m a talkative bitch and I can take over a conversation. lol Plus I’ve met Kim before and it was every else’s first time. I broke the ice talking about random stuff and after that the convo just started flowing. It was really fun to see the look in everyone’s eyes. Kim started telling us funny stories about North and how she hated pictures. Then a few days after, a video of her telling the paparazzi “No pictures!” came out. So funny!
Then out of no where Kanye walked in with North. People started screaming and once again I just smiled. TKD walked over to talk to him and I remember Hali telling me “C’mon Myleeza! He’s about to let us listen to the album!”
We walked out to his Range Rover while other people stayed in and talked to Kim and North. Kanye played us a few songs and we were going CRAZY! I remember jumping on Noah after every punchline. He played a lot of songs, but I clearly remember Wolves, 30 Hours, and Highlights. He played some songs with Young Thug and Migos too. Ye got some HEAT that hasn’t even been released!
We came back inside after listening to the album. When we came back inside, everyone wanted individual pics with Kim and Kanye. I had like everyone’s phone taking pictures for everyone. Kim gave me the side eye saying “thank you”, but it was no big deal. I just wanted everyone else to have that moment. I don’t think I got any good individual pics just because I was taking pics for everyone else.
Kim hugged everyone and thanked us for coming then she left. Seconds after she left, she DM’ed me asking how did I think it went and if everyone had fun. I said yes! We had the time of our lives!
After the brunch, a few of us went to see the Hollywood sign together. We played Kanye in the Uber the entire ride. It was LIT! After a long day, everyone went to dinner while I studied for my midterms.
All in all, that trip was AMAZING! Someone from the Whalerock Team asked me “How does this stack up to your birthday?” I mean my birthday was GOAT level, but Kim’s birthday trip is a close 2nd. What I enjoyed the most is seeing everyone else so happy and excited. The looks on their faces seeing Kim and Kanye for the first time was priceless. I smiled the entire time! Of course we had people throwing shade and spreading hate on Twitter, but we didn’t let that damper our good time. I can’t thank Kim enough for that entire experience! I hope more people get to have that same experience soon.
