Cardi B Talks About Her Pregnancy & Making Money Moves On TRL

These days, it’s impossible to go anywhere without a mention of Cardi B—I barely remember what life was like before the entertainment world revolved around her! Last week, the rapper sealed her fate as a music legend with the release of her bombshell debut album titled Invasion Of Privacy. Following all of her groundbreaking success, it only seemed right that the Love & Hip-Hop alum take over the TRL studio for the day to celebrate her latest accomplishments.

Sway Calloway made his epic return to MTV to celebrate this monumental moment, also tapping Cardi’s sister Hennessy Carolina to co-host the show and count down her top 10 iconic moments. After they warmed up the show, Queen Cardi sat on her cushioned throne and talked everyone through her latest life updates, including her newly announced pregnancy, her engagement to Offset, what went down at the Invasion Of Privacy release party and the moment that she felt like she finally made it.

Cardi also reflected on the legacy of her viral video for “a hoe never gets cold” and then got super nostalgic with Hennessy in a round of I Did It that ended with her casually getting a brand-new Gucci bag. J Balvin and DJ Khaled also sent over some special shoutouts, which was too cute. Cardi is truly a character with a big personality, so it made sense that some fierce drag queens touched down in the studio and embodied a few of our favorite versions of her. On top of that, Cardi also got a custom cover blanket courtesy of collage.com, a one-of-a-kind painting and a gigantic cake. Just another day in the fabulous life of Cardi B!

Is Cardi B’s ‘Bickenhead’ Her Next ‘Bodak Yellow’? And More Moments From Invasion Of Privacy

Bodak Bar: “I took pictures with Beyoncé, I met Mama Knowles / I’m the rose that came from the concrete in the Rolls”

“Best Life,” featuring Chance The Rapper, is Invasion of Privacy‘s first great album cut. It isn’t as club-ready as “Bickenhead,” as worldly as “I Like It,” or vulnerable like “Thru Your Phone,” but it doesn’t need to be.

The genius of “Best Life” is the way it positions Cardi next to Chance. The Chicago artist doesn’t outrap Cardi like he tends to do and he might not have been able to considering how hard the former Love & Hip Hop actress spits throughout the album. Instead of lyrical competition, the low-key song allows for both rappers to get inspirational while collectively geeking out about how they met Beyoncé.

Cardi B’s ‘Bartier Cardi’ Video Is A Decadent Dream Of Furs And Half-Naked Men

Last night (April 2), Cardi B dropped the video for “Bartier Cardi” featuring 21 Savage. The surrealist and opulent vision is directed by Petra Collins who is known for what The New Yorker calls a ”dreamy, hyper-feminine aesthetic.” Throughout the video, the Bronx rapper is decked in luxurious furs as she raps in a mansion full of male eye candy and women counting money next to candy.

21 Savage is briefly kidnapped and forced to look at television screens that show nothing but static. Thankfully, the Atlanta rapper doesn’t seem to mind. 21 is either really into BDSM or potentially has a form of Stockholm syndrome.

Finally, a ”Bartier Cardi” visual wouldn’t be complete without a cameo from Offset. The video keeps it PG and avoids putting any anatomical regions on the Migos member. Guess Cardi and Offset will have to wait a little longer to “sell that porn.”

Last week, Cardi revealed that her debut album, Invasion of Privacy, is dropping on Friday (April 6). Recently she’s been teasing fans with updates like her rendition of Cheetah Girls anthem “Cinderella” and releasing her third single, “Be Careful.”

Cardi B Is An Honorary Disney Princess After Her Immaculate Cheetah Girls Cover

Please say Cardi B isn’t trolling. Yesterday (March 28), the “Bodak Yellow” star playfully teased a song from her debut album, Invasion of Privacy. Although, instead of the Bronx rapper breaking out into her signature staccato flow, she decided to bring back a 2003 classic, “Cinderella” by The Cheetah Girls. Above an Instagram caption that simply read “Invasion of privacy

Cardi B Says The #MeToo Movement Overlooks Women In Hip-Hop

For several months, the #MeToo movement has shed light on how prevalent sexual harassment and abuse are in women’s lives, both inside and outside Hollywood. But according to Cardi B, there’s a double standard at play: women in the hip-hop community aren’t being heard in the same way, and the movement has yet to effectively seep into the music industry.

In a new interview with Cosmopolitan, the rapper calls out #MeToo for not being fully inclusive, especially when it comes to video models, who are often seen and not heard.

“A lot of video vixens have spoke about this and nobody gives a fuck,” she explained. “When I was trying to be a vixen, people were like, ‘You want to be on the cover of this magazine?’ Then they pull their dicks out. I bet if one of these women stands up and talks about it, people are going to say, ‘So what? You’re a ho. It don’t matter.’

“These producers and directors, they’re not woke, they’re scared,” Cardi continued, questioning the motives behind the high-profile men publicly supporting #MeToo.

Along the same times, Cardi also discussed her past life as a stripper and how it’s often twisted in the media to paint a misleading picture of her life. The truth, she said, is that stripping is a legitimate job that warrants respect.

“People say, ‘Why do you always got to say that you used to be a stripper? We get it,’” Cardi said. “Because y’all don’t respect me because of it, and y’all going to respect these strippers from now on.”

As per usual, Cardi doesn’t seem to be at a loss for words, and with her debut album finally on the way, it looks like we’ll be hearing a lot more from her soon.

Cardi B Proudly Reveals Her Album Is Dropping Very Soon

Last night (March 11), Cardi B proved once again that her charisma could take over any award show she goes too. Cardi started the iHeartRadio Music Awards off with a performance of “Bodak Yellow” and “Bartier Cardi” before walking away with the Best New Artist award. During her speech, she gave fans an update on when they can expect her long-awaited debut.

“My album will be coming in April,” said Cardi. “Yes, sir, April. Stay tuned, motherfuckers.”

The “Motorsport” star also took time out of her acceptance speech to thank her publicist, label, and fiancé Offset. However, it wouldn’t be a Cardi speech without a little bit of bite for her detractors.

“I want to thank my fans, Bardi Gang, because even when I’m wrong, they be like, ‘She’s still right,’” said Cardi. “I want to thank my haters too, because they be downloading my stuff so they can hear it and talk crap about it, but it benefits me.”

In a Beats 1 Radio interview with Julie Adenuga, the “Finesse” rapper described why she will always rap about her haters.

“I’m always gonna talk about them because I hate them,” said Cardi. “I hate y’all. I wish y’all catch something. … I’m not too cool to tell your fucking ass something. Like, how your fucking square ass is gonna talk about me?”

Guess we’ll have to wait until April to see what the anti-Cardi brigade has to say about an entire album of slander.

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.”
