6 year old throws epic Drake-themed birthday party, turning her bday into a lifestyle

Although birthday party themes for 6-year-old girls usually tend to go more toward pink and princesses, six-year-old Leah had something different in mind. To celebrate her sixth year on this Earth, she wanted — and got — a Drake-themed birthday party. Yes, that Drake.

The idea for the party came about when Leah asked her mother, Alexis Gomez, to buy her a t-shirt with the Drake lyrics “Turn my birthday into a lifestyle” printed on it. Leah is a lifelong Drake fan, so the party theme wasn’t too much of a stretch. As Gomez’s friend Abby Marquez told Mashable, she’d been into Drizzy since she was in “her momma’s womb.” Gomez backed this up in a statement to Buzzfeed, confirming that her daughter “loves everything about his music” and “recently said she wants to marry Drake when she’s older.”

So what does a Drake-themed children’s party look like? If Marquez’s photos from the event are any indication, it looks baller as hell. Party decorations included fake $100 bills, balloons with Drake’s smiling face printed on them, and invites/flyers with a picture of Drake in the classic smoking-a-cigar-to-prove-I’m-rich pose, except with a party noisemaker replacing the cigar. Marquez also told Buzzfeed the balloons were held in place with miniature Hennessy bottles. That is commitment, folks.

OK, mini liquor-themed decorations might be a little age-inappropriate for a 6 year old, and Drake’s general body of work isn’t really G-rated. I can’t imagine my parents letting me listen to lyrics such as “That pussy knows me better than I know myself.” But look how happy that little girl is! She’s clearly having the greatest time ever. How could anyone begrudge her that unless they’re dead inside?

The only real problem is the pressure of having to match this next year.

But here’s an idea: hire Drake to perform in person. If we get a Kickstarter going now, we might raise enough money to book him for Leah’s seventh birthday party. I think that’s a cause we can all get behind.
