Cardi B is sporting a new piercing and the guy who did it, had no idea who she was. Luis Vega, owner of City of Angels Tattoos, told TMZ that Cardi randomly walked into his shop asking for a lip piercing. Luis said he didn’t know it was the Grammy-winning rapper until they started chatting. His suspicions were confirmed when he peeked outside and saw Cardi’s entourage in a caravan of luxury cars.
Cardi B has deleted her Instagram after posting an expletive-filled video defending her Grammy win. She also posted screen shots of fellow rappers supporting her and daughter Kulture Kiari Cephus saying “Mama” for the first time.
People were unhappy when Cardi took home the award for Best Rap Album for “Invasion of Privacy”; many felt the late Mac Miller should have won.
She officially became the first female rapper to win that category.
Fans are convinced Ariana Grande’s Grammy gown was a tribute to rapper Mac Miller. While Ariana decided to boycott the award show after beefing with producers, she didn’t want the gown she had planned to wear going to waste. So, in the most Ariana way, she posted photos of herself in the Cinderella like gown during Sunday night’s show.
Here’s where the connection was made by fans: Mac wrote a song about the high-pony tailed singer when they were dating. That song, was titled “Cinderella.” It really is not that big of a stretch to connect the dots.
MEANWHILE—Mac, who passed away last year, was honored during the show’s “In Memoriam” segment. He was up for Best Rap Album, but lost to Cardi B.
Cardi B and Offset are back together.
She’s moved in to the Atlanta home they previously shared. They publicly split over accusations of infidelity.
Cardi B is starting 2019 off on a positive and hopeful note. A source close to the rapper shared with TMZ that Cardi and Offset are putting the drama of last year behind them and working toward the future. While the couple spent New Year’s apart, they were spotted together shortly before Christmas on a fun-filled, family vacation in Puerto Rico.
Despite all the haters saying it was impossible, Maroon 5 has locked down another artist for the Super Bowl Halftime Show. Travis Scott has signed on to join M5 in Atlanta on February 3rd and will be bringing his baby mama Kylie Jenner to support him.
Offset has gotten one of his birthday wishes granted. The rapper will be spending Christmas with Cardi B and their daughter Kulture Kiari Cephus. A source told E! News that Cardi wants him “to be a part of Kulture’s life and wants him to spend Christmas with their daughter. It’s Kulture’s first Christmas and it means a lot to Cardi to have the family together.”
Cardi B swears that Offset appearing onstage during her concert was not rehearsed. The rapper was in the middle of a set when her estranged hubby showed up on stage with a cart of roses that spelled out “Take Me Back Cardi.” The 26-year-old did not seem to appreciate the interruption and quickly had her ex removed from the stage.
Fans are now saying that the whole thing was planned because a video has surfaced showing Cardi’s P.R. manager, Patientice, leading the way for the 27-year-old and his roses.
A source close to the couple says the stunt was not known to Cardi and if her P.R. rep did in fact support it, that was only because she loves them both and hopes they are able to work things out.
Later that night Cardi’s estranged baby daddy was seen celebrating his 27th birthday at a club, where he said his birthday wish was for forgiveness and a reconciliation.
Offset is hoping to be home for the holidays. The rapper who is currently on the outs with his wife Cardi B, is hoping to spend Christmas with her and their daughter Kulture. Sources close to the couple told TMZ that the 26-year-old knows how important it is to be there for his daughter’s first Christmas.
Cardi has not made up her mind yet if she will allow her baby daddy to celebrate with them.
Cardi B is feeling “very torn” about her feelings toward estranged husband Offset. A source told E! that “it’s been really hard for both of them” and while he is trying really hard to win his family back, Cardi is just “not on board yet.”
MEANWHILE—the woman who is rumored to be the cause of the break-up aka the one Offset cheated with, has reportedly released a song about the whole situation.
Summer Bunni, who released a statement to TMZ apologizing to Cardi, has written and released a song called “Don’t Matter.”
If the lyrics tell the truth about what went on between her and the rapper, Cardi will likely be filing those divorce papers.
Sources told TMZ that the rapper was desperately trying to save his marriage before Cardi made the announcement that they were done.
The 26-year-old believes that what he wants may be impossible because of all the haters out there commenting and blogging about the failed relationship. He added that Cardi reads all that is written and takes it to heart.
Friends close the couple said that the rapper only has love for his daughter Kulture and Cardi and that he will take every chance to save his family.
Tyra Banks is a supermodel-turned-MC. While hosting the Altus Foundation Gala in Houston on Sunday, she unexpectedly took the stage for some freestyle rapping. The 34-year-old was pretty good at it too.
Cardi B has removed her 8-carat, $550k wedding ring.
As the 26-year-old headed into Madison Square Garden for iHeartRadio’s Jingle Ball concert, she proudly waved her hand for fans and paps to notice the bare finger.
The move was obviously a signal to her estranged hubby Offset, who the rapper has already stopped following on Instagram.
Following the Jingle Ball concert, Offset took to Twitter to share his feelings on the matter, writing, “F**K YALL I MISS CARDI.”
Summer Bunni made an emotional apology to Cardi through TMZ and offered hopes that the estranged couple would be able to reconcile.
Summer and the rapper allegedly hooked up not long before Cardi gave birth to the couple’s daughter Kulture. Summer was also the woman Cardi’s hubby allegedly asked to have a threesome with that would have included wannabe rapper Cuban Doll.
Cardi B and Offset are calling it quits. Cardi took to Instagram to announce the two are no longer together, saying she has “been trying to work things out with my baby father for a hot minute now” and adding “I guess we grew out of love.”
The parents of 4-month-old Kulture were secretly married in September 2017 and didn’t confirm the marriage until June 2018.
The reason Cardi B couldn’t make her Monday court hearing? Twerking. The 26-year-old was spotted rocking some tiger striped body paint and doing her thing on a yacht in Miami. The rapper was reportedly shooting a music video, but it seemed like more fun than work, especially once they started poppin’ bottles.
The judge in Cardi B’s strip club beatdown case has issued the rapper a stern warning: “show up to court or face getting arrested.”
While Cardi’s legal team appeared for the Monday morning hearing, the 26-year-old was no where in sight. The judge and prosecutors expressed their frustration as they had already given Cardi a 6-week extension on the case.
Cardi’s defense team also expressed their own frustration saying, they have not been able to get in touch with her directly and only found out on Thursday that the rapper had a prior commitment which would prevent her from attending the hearing.
Nicki Minaj recently featured the bartenders in her music video—a big ole middle finger to Cardi.
Cardi B was spotted at her old elementary school. The Bronx-born rapper stopped at P.S. 128 Audubon in NYC’s Washington Heights neighborhood during the school’s lunch time. The 26-year-old—who donned orange hair for the visit—took a moment to snap a pic with her former 1st grade teacher, Yvette Coporan.
Cardi B has fulfilled a childhood dream of buying her mom a new house. The 26-year-old said that she wanted to make sure she could afford what her mom deserved in a home before “laying down the cash.” She added that it makes her so happy to think that her daughter will get to enjoy the home as well, when she visits her grandma.
Cardi B has yet to share any photos of daughter Kulture on social media because she is afraid. The chart-topping rapper told ET that she is scared of sharing her with the world because, “there are so many mean people out there.” The 26-year-old and her husband Offset welcomed their little girl in July.
Lil Yachty says his hands are tied when it comes to any potential collaborating with Nicki Minaj. The reason…he is team Cardi B. Yachty says that he would love to work with Nicki, but he’d have to turn her down because he and Cardi are signed to the same management team, Quality Control Music.
MEANWHILE—Lil Yacty may not have to pick sides because a truce may have just happened between Cardi B and Nicki Minaj. After going for the throat during her “Queen Radio” talk show, Nicki posted on Twitter: “Ok you guys, lets focus on positive things only from here on out. We’re all so blessed. I know this stuff is entertaining & funny to a lot of people but I wont be discussing this nonsense anymore.” Cardi shared the tweet on her Instagram and captioned it “alright then! Let’s keep it positive and keep it pushing!” Has the proverbial hatchet been buried for good or will the two go at again in their lyrics? Only time…and record sales…will tell.
