23 Times Cardi B Gave Some Serious Life Advice

From exotic dancer to reality TV star to chart-topping rapper, Cardi B has enough life experience to dish some hard truths. Famous for telling it how it is, Queen Belcalis Marlenis Almánzar AKA Bacardi AKA Cardi AKA Bardi B is a quote minefield. But it’s not all feuds and celebrity gossip. Cardi B has some serious life advice if you look past the Twitter rants and media hype. Keep scrolling to read some serious gems from the mouth of this Bronx-raised star.

“I’m my own competition. I’m competing with myself.”


How profound is this? When we compete with others, we end up jealous and resentful. When we compete with ourselves, we make ourselves better every day. Work hard and earn hard and focus on doing you chica.

Some people will always be jealous. This quote is the ultimatr reminders us that our achievements are our own and we should be proud of them.

ASMR might seem like a trend but Cardi’s recent words about the phenomenon prove that it might actually be a lifestyle to live by. Cardi B became an asmrtist for a day and helped fans in the process. ASMR videos use soft sounds to create a tingling sensation which many people find relaxing. One Instagram fan told Cardi B that her ASMR video had helped with her insomnia.

“I’m the artist, but I don’t feel like I have a higher position than anybody that’s working for me.”

Cardi gives us all a lesson in humility and respecting those you work with.

“I am not your property. This is my life.”

Although Cardi was referring to her decision to stay with husband Offset after allegations of cheating, this quote applies in many situations. Never let anyone control who you are. Be like Cardi and stop caring what everyone thinks.

“Having a number one song makes me happy—but working for it makes me really happy.”

Fame and fortune are great, but knowing how you got there is even better. Cardi reminds us to enjoy the journey, not just the destination.

“If I change myself, then I’m going to lose myself, and I won’t be who makes me happy.”

When we change for other people, we aren’t being true to ourselves. Cardi hits the nail on the head again when she realizes we have to avoid changing for others in order to be happy.

“I don’t want any ‘friends’ who fall silent during my success.”

Cardi reminds us that fair-weather friends aren’t really friends at all. Jealousy is always ugly.

“…why can’t I have both? Why do I have to choose a baby or a career?”

In response to haters saying she was throwing her career away for a kid, Cardi claps back that any woman can have both.

“I want a lit baby shower. My baby shower’s not starting at no 5:00.”

Why do we have baby showers at kid-friendly times? They’re not for the kids. They’re for the grownups. And grownups want to have fun! Cardi B’s late-night baby shower is a reminder to have fun while you can.

“I don’t want to miss one second. I don’t want to miss no smiles, I don’t want to miss no new movement, I don’t want the baby to confuse me and the babysitter.”

Cardi talks about wanting to be the best mom she can be, and reminds all parents and parents-to-be how precious every moment is. Every second counts when you have kids.

“…when I see my daughter, it’s like a peace of mind. ‘Ahh, I do this because of you.’ It cracks a smile on the most stressful days.”

Cardi muses that children change everything and give new purpose to life.

“It’s like everybody always talking about there’s someone got a problem with me, or somebody always saying that I’m pregnant every two weeks, so it’s just like, if y’all wanna know, ask me. I’ll tell you.”

That’s right. If you want to know what’s going on in someone’s life, just ask them. Don’t wait for gossip and rumor. They always cause trouble.

“You better realize your worth and stop settling for bare minimum.”

We all need to realize we are special and worthy of love. Thanks Cardi.

“I’m not even the king of New York. I am the Emperor!”

Wearing a lampshade as a crown, Cardi B proves that she’s always ready for fun, and that royalty isn’t quite good enough for her. Don’t be the king, don’t be a queen. Be the emperor!

Great things often have humble beginnings. Cardi proves again and again that you can be successful no matter where you started.

“I got options, but I want who I want.”

We don’t get to choose who we love, and Cardi shut the mouths of haters by pointing out that we’ve all got to make our own choices when it comes to relationships.

“…other people, you don’t know what type of things are happening in their relationship.”

Cardi advises everyone to keep their noses out of other people’s relationships and stop judging. What’s right for one couple doesn’t work for every couple.

“…just do what your heart feel like doing.”

In this relationship advice to Khloé Kardashian, Cardi lets us all know it’s OK to follow your heart.

“I only know my struggle.”

Don’t judge others on what they’re going through. You only know your pain; that doesn’t mean others aren’t struggling too.

“Let’s keep it positive and keep it pushing!”

Cardi’s response to Nicki Minaj’s apparent desire to drop their feud is inspiring. How many of us are willing to let things go and keep moving forward with a positive attitude?

“People always want to tell you how to do it—no, do it your way”

The final word from Cardi B: sure, listen to advice, but ultimately no one can tell you how to live your life. Always do things the way that works for you. We look forward to more nuggets of wisdom from Cardi!

Video Dug Up From Cardi B’s Past Shows Her Saying She Used To Drug And Rob Men

Stay grateful you did not grow up in the era of Snapchat/ Instagram/ Facebook kids because you can delete but your recorded actions can still come back to bite. Cardi B knows the story. While the Afro-Latina queen of Trap isn’ making any apologies, the latest video to be dug up from her past is requiring her to give some answers.

Video of the singer, recalling a time in her life in which she felt forced to drug and rob men while seducing them has resurfaced.

Over the weekend, video of the “Money” rapper recalling how she used to drug and rob men resurfaced.

The video, which was recorded during an Instagram live broadcast, sees Cardi as she goes on a tearful verbal tirade about her past. This after, someone apparently questioned her success and accused her of not “putting in no fucking work.”

“I had to go ‘oh yeah, you wanna fuck me? Yeah yeah yeah let’s go to this hotel.’ And then I’d drug [expletivie] up and I’d rob them. That’s what I used to do.”

Users online were quick to comment.

“The fact that cardi b admitted to drugging and robbing men she would take back to a hotel for sex blows my mind,” wrote Twitter user @itsangelaa. “That’s not ‘keeping it real.’ that’s a crime.”

“I wonder what woulda happened if it were the other way round,” @BTSisthecauseo5 commented.

At the onset of the backlash, the rapper seemed to take the comments rather lightly.

The following day she also tweeted “IM THAT BITCH THEY LOVE TO HATE, IM THAT BITCH THEY HATE TO LOVE and I love it.”

On Tuesday, however, after users on Instagram and Twitter continued to simmer, she was forced to issue comment.


In a post to her Instagram, the rapper responded to the comments about the video by saying: “I’m a part of a hip hop culture where you can talk about where you come from talk about the wrong things you had to do to get where you are.”

Cardi B To Make Feature Film Debut In Stripper Scam Movie ‘Hustlers’ Alongside J. Lo


Cardi B To Make Feature Film Debut In Stripper Scam Movie ‘Hustlers’ Alongside J. Lo

Cardi B has dominated the music charts with bangers that allude to her past life as a New York City stripper, and now the hip-hip star is ready to take over the big screen as a scammin’ dancer in the film “Hustlers.”

Deadline reports that the movie, set in New York during the 2008 financial crisis, is a tale of strippers who join together to swindle their Wall Street clients. Written and directed by Lorene Scafaria (The Meddler), “Hustlers” is based on a 2015 article by Jessica Pressler for New York Magazine titled “The Hustlers at Scores.”

The film will also star Jennifer Lopez, who Cardi worked with in 2018 on the hit “Dinero,” as well as Constance Wu (“Crazy Rich Asians”), Lili Reinhart (Riverdale), Keke Palmer (Scream Queens), Julia Stiles (“Silver Linings Playbook”) and Oscar-winner Mercedes Ruehl (“The Fisher King”).

Lopez is also producing the movie alongside STXfilms, Elaine Goldsmith-Thomas and Benny Medina, who collaborated previously on the 2018 rom-com “Second Act.”

While “Hustlers” will mark Cardi’s first major acting role, she isn’t new to the screen. The Bronx rapper appeared as herself on Love and Hip Hop: New York for two seasons, before her explosive music career, and made a guest appearance on Gabrielle Union’s BET series Being Mary Jane in 2017.

Shooting for the film will begin on March 22, 2019, and we’re all excited to see our fave Dominican-Trinidadian on the big screen.
