Cardi B Makes History At The Grammys, Becomes First Solo Woman to Win Rap Album Of The Year

Last night’s 61st annual Grammy Awards was a huge night for women in music. The award ceremony featured many historical moments for the ladies from Camila Cabello being the first Latina to open the Grammys to Brandi Carlile being the first LGBTQ person to win a Grammy for the best Americana album. The real queen of the show, however, had to be reigning Bronx beauty.

Cardi B made history when she took home Rap Album of the Year.


Her debut album, “Invasion Of Privacy,” won the Best Rap Album of the Year, which made her the first solo woman to ever win that distinguished award. The rapper was at a loss for words when host Alicia Keys called her name. She was visibly in shock and told the audience “The nerves are so bad. Maybe I need to start smoking weed.” She went on to thank a slew of people and ended her speech by also thanking her baby.

“I’m not just saying thank you because she’s my daughter,” she said. “It’s because, you know, when I found out I was pregnant, my album was not complete. I had, like, three songs I was for sure having. And then you know how it was: We was like, we have to get this album done so I could shoot these videos while I’m still not showing. And it was very long nights.”

In Cardi B form, the rapper continued to thank even more people backstage including everyone on her mom’s side and dad’s side of the family.

This time she didn’t have producers cueing her off the stage and could thank as many people as she wanted.

Cardi also performed her latest single “Money” from her Grammy-award winning album, but there was one drawback: she was lip-syncing.

Most people on social media cut her a break because she was performing on a massive stage with stairs, but others weren’t so kind.

@kimcollelo tweeted “Cardi B didn’t even sing—why’d she have to lip sync a rap?? That was a waste of my time and just an excuse to hump a piano.”

The real event of the night for Cardi came later that evening when she got home to her baby Kulture.

Her baby girl said mama for the very first time!

“After a week of only saying papa! She saying mama! Happy 7 months Kulture! We love you,” Cardi said on Instagram.

It was definitely Cardi B’s night, but before we go, here’s one more look at her stunning red-carpet entrance.

That tongue kiss says it all: they are back together.

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.
