Cardi B Joins The Ranks Of Michael Jackson And Britney Spears With Her New Pepsi Ad For The Super Bowl

A year ago, Cardi B said she would not perform during the upcoming Super Bowl until the NFL rehired former San Francisco 49ers and social rights activist Colin Kaepernick. Then it seemed she had a change of heart. Rumors surfaced that she would perhaps be featured on stage at this year’s Super Bowl alongside Maroon 5 during their collaborative hit song “Girls Like You.” A source told The New York Post that “Cardi B is standing tough and holding out. She doesn’t want to do it unless they roll out the red carpet for her.” They added that she wanted “$1 million, plus a solo spot in the epic halftime show to make it worth her while.”

Despite the NFL not forking over a million bucks toward a Cardi Super Bowl appearance, it looks like another big corporation will gladly give it to her.

Cardi B will be seen during the Super Bowl 53 game in a Pepsi commercial.

Pepsi released three teasers today featuring Cardi B, actor Steve Carell, and rapper Lil Jon. It’s not clear how much Pepsi is paying Cardi for this ad, but as we know, these commercials pay big bucks to get seen during the Super Bowl. It’ll be interesting to see how this commercial plays out, but we already love that the teaser ends with her signature “Okurrrrr.”

Some folks on social media expressed their frustration over the Bronx rapper making an appearance during the Super Bowl when she had previously said she wouldn’t citing the NFL’s treatment of Kaepernick.

“I just don’t get why Cardi B isn’t getting hate and only Travis, at least he’s donating his earnings to a cause while Cardi gladly accepted her check to be the face of Pepsi for the Super Bowl,” Daniel Mendez said on Twitter.

Another person on Twitter said: “This coming from a celebrity who turned down the Superbowl half time show to ‘support’ Colin K, yet was just fine running a Pepsi commercial in the prime slot during the game. She turned down the halftime show cuz Pepsi offered more $$. Fake fake fake.”

Adding another dollar sign to Cardi’s baller income this year is another high-paying gig. The 26-year-old will be performing her first residency in Las Vegas at the Palms Casino Resort club KAOS in April.

Here’s the Pepsi teaser ad below.

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.
