Cardi B And Camila Cabello Are Headed To The Lone Star State To Headline The Biggest Rodeo In The World

Two of our favorite Latina entertainers are headed to the Lone Star state to headline the biggest rodeo in the world. Cardi B and Camila Cabello are both part of this year’s Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo lineup. Joining other performers like Panic! At The Disco, Brooks And Dunn, Santana and Zedd, the Latinas will participate in the more than the 80-year-old international event.

Founded in 1938, the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo have drawn some of the biggest legends in the music industry. However, the three-week long event features a lot more than an epic concert series. Rodeo Houston also involves a city-wide parade, 5k, and 10k marathons, the 1World’s Championship Bar-B-Que Contest, a carnival, livestock auctions, and live championship rodeo events.

This will be the first appearance for both Latinas.

Performing on March 1st, Carbi will be the headliner for Rodeo Houston’s Black Heritage Day. Cabello will follow up the Afro-Latina with her own performance on March 5th. It’s important to note that neither Latina is playing on the event’s official Go Tejano Day; the day in the concert lineup on which Latinx performers usually represent their music.

Though Cardi and Cabello are both playing this year’s concert series, the list of Latinas who have already headlined the Rodeo is extremely exclusive.

Here are the Latina performers who have brought their talent and star power to the Lone Star state:

1. Selena

Selena is even more of a trailblazer than we realized. The Queen of Tejano music was the first ever Latina to ever headline the Houston Rodeo’s concert series. In 1993, Selena played the Astrodome alongside Los Dinos but would have independent billing in ’94 and ’95 as her popularity exploded. In fact, it was her 1995 performance at the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo that gave us her iconic “Disco Medley” and one-of-a-kind purple jumpsuit. The February performance was also her last before her untimely death in March of that same year.

2. Jennifer Peña

Once considered the second coming of Selena, Peña followed in her idol’s footsteps in several ways. Most notably, the Latina played Rodeo Houston in 2004; about 10 years after Selena had last played the event. Peña’s appearance at the Rodeo was at the height of her popularity and 61,000 fans came to see the Tejana pop star sing. She also used the opportunity to record an album, “Houston Rodeo Live.” Though Peña no longer performs, she’ll always have the Houston Rodeo.

3. Adrienne Bailon of The Cheetah Girls

Disney Channel phenomenon The Cheetah Girls were unbelievably popular in the mid-2000’s. Besides having a clothing line, two movies, a book series, and a home decor line, the group was also invited to play at the World’s largest rodeo in 2007. Of the four members of the group, only Adrienne Bailon is a Latina, but she sure repped for la Raza. Their performance was the last stop on their second world tour and, impressively enough, the show sold 800,000 tickets in 3 minutes.

4. Los Horóscopos de Durango

Since 1975, Los Horóscopos de Durango have played together with a lineup of different musicians and vocalists. Most recently, Vicky and Marisol Terrazas have to lead the multi-award winning band. In 2008, the Latina-led group made its way to Houston to bring their brand of Duranguense to the world’s largest rodeo. Fans of Los Horoscopos can still enjoy this 2008 performance with the band’s live album of their appearance.

5. Selena Gomez

Our other favorite Selena, Gomez has also made three appearances at the Houston Rodeo. The Texas native played the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo in 2010, 2011, and 2014. Her first two appearances at the were due to her overwhelming Disney Channel popularity and legion of young fans. By her 2014 appearance, though, the pop star and her music had definitely matured. As Gomez continues to evolve and release bop after bop, there’s no doubt she’ll be invited back.

6. Demi Lovato

Another Texas native, Lovato has also tied both Selenas for a number of Houston Rodeo appearances. The Dallas native performed during 2010, 2013, and 2017. Just like Gomez, Lovato’s early Disney stardom got her invited to the event early in her career but it’s her continuously evolving sound that has earned her so many invites back. During her most recent visit, she was a last minute fill-in for an ailing Meghan Trainer but no doubt this isn’t the Latina’s last rodeo.

7. Ally Brooke and Lauren Jauregui of Fifth Harmony

Interesting enough, Cabello’s former group Fifth Harmony have already played Rodeo Houston. In 2017, a few months after Cabello left the group, the quartet made their debut performance at the Houston event. Latina members of Fifth Harmony, Ally Brooke and Lauren Jauregui, became the most recent additions to the “Latinas who played Rodeo Houston” list as they preformed for a stadium full of 64,000 screaming fans.

We’re definitely looking forward to Cardi and Cabello expanding this list by two.

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 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.
