Cardi B Was Attacked By A Cheetah While Filming Her ‘Bodak Yellow’ Video

Cardi B may talk up a big game, but the dependably fierce rapper met her match on the set of her “Bodak Yellow” music video last year.

In a new interview with Genius, director Picture Perfect discussed the difficult, Dubai-set video shoot, which involved filming with a few wild animals. There was a camel — which Cardi gamely mounted, bloody shoes and all — and a cheetah, who ended up being way less of a team player than they had hoped.

“I didn’t know how hard it was gonna be to get a cheetah out there,” Picture Perfect said. “We shot this scene we didn’t use, and he attacked Cardi in that scene.”

At the 1:51 mark in the video below, you can see the raw footage he’s referring to. Cardi stands a couple feet away from the wild cat, holding him by a leash. Then, in the middle of rapping her verse, the animal snaps at her and she immediately calls out, “No no no, come hold him!”

In the end, the crew secured another cheetah who was sedated after a heavy meal of “about six pounds of deer meat” (yum). He was so chill, in fact, that Cardi was able to pet him on the head (you can see that shot in the video’s final version). Picture Perfect also talked about wanting to put a cheetah next to Cardi in a car — but thankfully he had a change of heart about that.

“She’s a trooper, man,” he said. Seems like an understatement!

Bruno Mars Is Plotting A Celebratory Tour With ‘Lil Sis’ Cardi B

Fresh off his domination at the Grammys, Bruno Mars is plotting a victory lap around the country — and he’s bringing a very in-demand guest with him.

The 24K Magic singer — who won six Grammys last weekend, including Album of the Year — hinted on Thursday night (February 1) that he’ll embark on another U.S. tour this year. Mars last toured North America from July to November 2017, but he says he wants to take another spin to “celebrate 24K Magic together one last time.”

But that’s not all. To sweeten the deal, Mars is bringing a special guest on tour: the one and only Cardi B, who features on Mars’s “Finesse (Remix).” “Annndddd…what if I told u imma bring my lil sis @iamcardib on tour so we can really turn your city upside down! Make this finale a party!!” Mars wrote.

No dates or venues have been announced as of yet. Mars is currently wrapping up the Latin American leg of his 24K Magic world tour, and is then scheduled to hit Las Vegas for a four-night run of shows, followed by lengthy legs in Australia, Asia, and Europe. He has international shows booked through July, so it looks like he won’t be returning stateside for a while. But when he does, it’ll probably look a little something like this (meaning it’ll be SO worth the wait):

Morning Bop: You Wish You Could Get On Cardi B’s Level

The song is dedicated to survivors of abuse in the wake of victim blaming. “Being a survivor often means feeling afraid, it means sometimes feeling worthless, like you can’t go on,” Alice stated in a press release. “We need to fight back against those who have victimized us and against the feelings that tell us to give up inside. Sometimes we think we deserve the pain others have inflicted on us. This song is what I need to tell myself to get through each day, and what I hope other survivors can remember when they feel like they can’t make it through the darkness of their own recovery. Every day is a fight.”
