Cardi B Is Very Rich And Here To Tell You How The Very Rich Like Her Are Taxed 45% (Prepare To Weep For Her)
Cardi B is showing us that she’s really gearing up for that 2020 election season by posting another rant about the state of the world we live in. This time Cardi is breaking down taxes for the ultra wealthy and still somehow comes off as relatable. I think it’s the seven-inch long green press-on nails she’s wearing: I always trust a woman with nails too long to wipe her own ass.
Billboard is reporting that Cardi B tweeted out a video discussing life in her tax bracket and why we should stop telling rich celebrities how they should spend their money. I guess Cardi got flack for her honesty (or maybe she’s saving up her best political strategy for the Presidential Debate she’ll no doubt be taking part in) and she deleted the tweets, but luckily for us: the internet is forever.
Here’s a transcript:
“You know what I hate? I hate when celebrities do something very extravagant, buy something very luxurious, there’s people in the comments like: ‘You coulda donated that, oh we going backwards, you coulda done this and that with your money’ and it’s like… who are you to tell people what to do with their hard worked fucking money? First of all: do you know that artists, celebrities; the IRS out of every check that you make they automatically take 45% of your check? That means in order to spend $500,000 you gotta make at least a million. Then like an artist like me and a lot of rappers that I know, they literally take care of their whole family. And that’s not tax-reductable because the IRS don’t consider that ‘a business’. On top of that: being an artist, looking good for y’all, doing all this extra shit to please y’all, that shit costs money. Like me for example: my bills is like, I’ll say about $300,000/$250,000 every single month and I try to put it cheaper and it’s just not, so…”

What I’m getting from this is that Cardi B can actually cover $300,000 in monthly bills. But I am crying for her, because she has to please all of you by dressing herself in designer outfits (which she most likely gets for free and the outfits she doesn’t get for free she can tax deduct). And I bet that instead of blending up $100 bills for her green nail color like she wanted, Cardi had to blend up $20 bills instead to stay on budget. Woe is Cardi!
