Dato’ Vida just celebrated 8.7 million views of ‘I Am Me’ with a Swarovski-topped cake


Coconuts KL’s favorite cosmetics baroness Datuk Seri Vida, aka Dato’ Vida, has a new career high to celebrate. Her single I Am Me has now hit 8.7 million views on YouTube after being released a little over two months ago.

The one-time football team owner, self-professed Louis Vuitton collaborator, parfumier and legal self-representor doesn’t just sell you skin products with enough mercury to make you bald. She also sings, k?


The public is divided over the pink-themed video, and accompanying track. While the vid has amassed 67,000 likes on YouTube, it’s also managed to garner 36,000 dislikes.

Dislikes? That’s what we in the business of living life to the fullest call “hatin’.” Haters, stand to the left.

Dato’ Vida has no time for the naysayers, and celebrated her feat yesterday at the entrance of luxury mall Pavilion, in Kuala Lumpur.

She brought with her a fuchsia Lamborghini, pink pajamas with feathered sleeves (SLAY!) and bright pink slippers.

Eagle-eyed fashionistas, and Vida fanboys and girls alike, will recognize the baju as being one of her costumes from the I Am Me music video.

She then proceeded to unveil a RM26,000 (US$2,600) cake topped with Swarovski crystals.

What did the cake taste of? Success. Just don’t choke on any of them crystals, gurl.
