During an interview with GQ, Cardi B showed us that she cares about more than just red bottoms and money moves when she gave everyone a quick history lesson on Franklin Delano Roosevelt. Cardi explained that she loved him because he got America through the Great Depression, and because he started Social Security. Hearing the magic words “Social Security” must have woken Senator Bernie Sanders up out of a deep nap (where he was dreaming of bare-knuckle boxing Jeff Bezos’s bank account), and he took to Twitter yesterday to say that he approves Cardi B’s message.
Six months ago, rap trio Migos released the song MotorSport, featuring Nicki Minaj and Cardi B. At the time of the song’s release, there were internet rumors going around that Nicki and Cardi were swiping at each other in their respective MotorSport verses. This was all allegedly fueled by a theory that Nicki thought she was going into the song on her own, and felt ambushed after when she realized Cardi would be involved too. It was all very messy. No one really cleared up exactly what happened, which of course led to the internet assuming Nicki hated Cardi.
Both Nicki and Cardi recently spoke about their alleged beef. But while Cardi swears she has no issue with Nicki, Nicki says she definitely did have a problem with Cardi.
With an album to promote and a finally confirmed bun in the oven, Cardi B has some work to do to keep those sales up, okerrrrr? Because she must have run out of shit to say about Nicki Minaj, Remy Ma, and Lil’ Kim, Cardi decided to use a GQ interview to run the gamut on everything from the New Deal, illegal butt injections, and being in a gang. I hope we can expect the same from Ariana Grande the next time she has new material! Continue reading
It’s been rumored for a while that celebrity tax analyst Cardi B is pregnant, and she confirmed it last night with an eye-roll triggering photoshoot backed by flowers on top of a car. No, she did it during her appearance on Saturday Night Live. Cardi’s album, Invasion of Privacy, dropped this week and the marketing plan was in full effect. The album dropping, that title, her pregnancy and her two performances on SNL accompanying the belly reveal came together with military-like precision. It would be cynical to suggest that someone got themselves knocked up just to increase their album sales. That would be more than military precision. That would be future therapy bills for Lil’ Cardi or Lil’ Offset. (Offset from the rap truo Migos is her fiance and the father of her impending tax credit.)
Cardi B’s first studio album, Invasion of Privacy, dropped today. That’s an appropriate title, considering that she’s spent the past couple of months watching information about her alleged pregnancy get leaked to the media. In February it was reported that members of her team were telling people she was pregnant with a baby put in her by her fiancé Quavo. Last month TMZ said that she’s due this summer. And there have been all the times she’s been seen wearing a plethora of bows and ruffles around her midsection.
Instead of visiting Google, Possibly pregnant Cardi B went on Instagram to tell Uncle Sam that she wants to know what the government is doing with her fucking tax money. And she wants to know NOW. Cardi wants an itemized list. Cardi would like a representative from the IRS to visit her at her pied-à-terre in NYC to explain exactly what her “Bodak Yellow” money is going towards. She rightfully points out that:
A) When you sponsor a child from a third-world country, you are sent an update every month. Why isn’t she being sent an update such as that about her taxes?
B) The streets of NYC, where Cardi lives, are “always” dirty and there’s “rats” in the subway. Why, Cardi wants to know, isn’t her 40% going towards cleaning up the streets.
Someone quickly whisper, “Err, war and golf trips,” into her ear. But these are questions we’ve all asked ourselves about our finances. #CardiBIsUs! #WeAreCardiB!
