Cray-cray(1)

blending and clipping adjective
A humorous way of describing something that could normally be considered wild or crazy. This word is presumably an homage to the way in which preteen girls talk, using a lot of abbreviations and repetition. Can also be used ironically, to mean that only a young, sheltered, preteen girl would find it crazy.
 
Oh my gosh, I can’t believe you just asked him out, you’re cray-cray.
Etymology : Clipping of Crazy(wild and unpredictable) that has been blended with another Crazy
