20 Lines From Cardi B’s Song ‘Be Careful’ That Anyone Who Has Ever Been Cheated On Will Just GET

Finding out you’ve been cheated can feel like having your heart shredded, gut filled with mud, and dreams completely trashed and stepped on all at the same time. The worst part? Even after the two-timing is over, or your relationship has seen the end, the pain of the betrayal tends to stick around for quite some time.

Hip-hop and Trap reina, Cardi B, knows this well. After confirming the rumors of her fiance Offset’s infidelities the “Bodack Yellow” rapper recently revealed to Cosmopolitan that she had decided to stick things out with her man. It was a decision that had many conflicted. Some criticized the Dominicana from the Bronx for staying with a man who’d disrespected her, others praised her for acting on her own emotions. No matter what you think of her decision, Cardi’s latest single ‘Be Careful’ reminds fans that when it comes to her emotions she’s still a “regular, degular, schmegular” sensitive Latina like the rest of us and that her heartbreak over her partner’s cheating comes just as real.

Here are the stages of coming to terms with cheating as told by Cardi B:

1. “I wanna get married, like the Currys, Steph and Ayesha shit”

Cardi’s opening line which centers around the potential she saw in her relationship, before the cheating, is beyond relatable. This one, in particular, is for all the women have ever pictured a partner waiting for them at the other end of the aisle only to have that image shattered by the news of their betrayal. These days it seems that even despite Offset’s cheating the rapper remains committed to obtaining her happy ending with her guy. Her man, her choice— here’s hoping Cardi, like the rest of us, gets her happy ending and the respect she deserves.

2. “Gave you TLC, you wanna creep and shit”

After the pain of discovering that a partner has cheated on you, it’s pretty easy to remember the times in your relationship where your relationship had you smelling like roses. You know, the times when treated your partner better than they treated you.

3. “Poured out my whole heart to a piece of shit”

Anyone who’s ever found themselves going through the grieving process of their partner’s cheating has probably sobbed a similar line while in the shower. Welcome to the beginning of the angry phase.

4. “Man, I thought you would’ve learned your lesson ‘Bout likin’ pictures, not returnin’ texts”

Ah, the line that speaks to anyone who has ever had to fire warning shots at her man and draw the line for him on what she counts as disrespect. The infuriating part is when your requests for respect and advisory were not heeded.

5. “Said that you was workin’, but you out here chasin’ culo”

With the discovery that you’ve been cheated on comes a stage of deep reflection. Of course, it’s not always healthy keeping tabs. But around this time you start counting up all of the lies you heard, all the sus behaviors and adding them up to the steaming load of B.S. that your partner served you with. It’s all part of the healing process, we get it, just don’t spend too much time combing through his Gram for more evidence that you already have enough of. Your time is better spent.

6. “I could’ve did what you did to me to you a few times”

Cue the curtains for the phase in which you reflect on the moments where you were the stronger partner. Reevaluating and reflecting on the moments that suggest that you deserve better than a cheater is key.

7. “But that’s not my M.O., I’m not that type of bitch”

Every relationship has its ups and downs, sure, but through the rollercoaster, you were able to hold onto your morals and push through the temptations. This, can be one of the most infuriating and simultaneously rewarding parts of the grieving process. Infuriating because you’ll remember all of those options you passed up on. Rewarding because deep down you know you made a decision to be respectful to your relationship (unlike some damn fool you know.)

8. “And karma for you is gon’ be who you end up with”

Nothing loves cheating like karma does. Cardi B’s lyrics welcome us to the petty AF stage anyone who’s been cheated on definitely deserves to go through.

9. “I gave you everything, what’s mine is yours”

With these lyrics, Cardi sums up one of the more practical thoughts a person can have after discovering they’ve been cheated on. Of course, we always want the people we love to do what they want with their life, but this never discredits the resentment we can hold when we know that we’ve given relationship our all while our partners have failed to give it the same respect in return.

10. “I want you to live your life of course”

Of course, we want everyone to be happy. It’s hard when they cheat though.

11. “You even got me trippin’, you got me lookin’ in the mirror different”

CREDIT: @iamcardib / Instagram

It can be easy to slip into a phase of misplaced self-loathing once a cheater gets revealed. That’s because having a partner be unfaithful to you in such a destructive way can bring out a slew of insecurities you might not even know you had. Suddenly you can start to blame yourself and think about how you could have better. 

12. “Yeah, my heart is like a package with a fragile label on it”

Folks, meet Belcalis. She might have brand new teeth, red bottoms, and a new whip, but she’s just as vulnerable as the rest of us. Like us, Cardi B might be an Amazon goddess but at that end of the day, she’s also human. Heartbreak is heartbreak and even the best of it can fall victim to its agony.

13. “You might have a fortune, but you lose me, you still gon’ be misfortunate”

CREDIT: @iamcardib / Instagram

This here for anyone who has ever been cheated on ever and is the ultimate PSA for cheaters: be careful you might be riding high now but you’ll be a mess when you realize what you’ve lost.

14. “You still stutter after certain questions”

CREDIT: @iamcardib / Instagram

The crushing moment you hear the lie come out of his mouth is awful.

15. “You keep in contact with certain exes”

CREDIT: @iamcardib / Instagram

16. “But I hope you get what you dyin’ for”

CREDIT: @iamcardib / Instagram

17. “It’s gon’ hurt me to hate you, but lovin’ you’s worse”

CREDIT: @iamcardib / Instagram

Cardi B brings us to the decision making the phase of the cheating healing process with this line that anyone who’s ever had to deal with a breakup can likely understand. 

18. “You gon’ gain the whole world But is it worth the girl that you’re losin’?”

CREDIT: @iamcardib / Instagram

Making the decision to stick around and see if things get better or leaving and having to make the journey of healing that comes after a breakup is a hard choice to make.

19. Yeah, it’s not a threat, it’s a warnin’

CREDIT: @iamcardib / Instagram

Even if you know your thoughts are ridiculous, or would never let a friend get away with similar mindsets. Fortunately (hopefully), after some reasoning, you move onto new phases where you realize that your partner’s cheating isn’t your own fault. You’re smart, clever, beautiful and everything only a class act, noncheating, partner deserves.

20. Yeah, my heart is like a package with a fragile label on it

The important thing is to remember in the end, your heart will heal. And you’ll find better.

Cardi B Claps Back at Haters Who Say She Shouldn’t Have Won Billboard’s ‘Woman of the Year’ Title

Cardi B Claps Back at Haters Who Say She Shouldn’t Have Won Billboard’s ‘Woman of the Year’ Title

Cardi B knows her worth and doesn’t have time for the haters. On Wednesday, Billboard announced that they crowned Cardi B “Woman of the Year”–an honor they bestow annually on a female artist who dominates the pop culture scene. As reference, last year, the award was given to Billie Eilish.

But with the chart-topping, record-smashing success of “WAP,” Billboard had pretty much no other choice but to give the title to none other than our Dominican-Trinidadian Queen, Cardi B, this year.

But not everyone was so happy about. A few bitter critics took to the internet to complain about the usual stuff: Cardi’s contributions to music this year, and her being a polarizing figure in general.

“Cardi B sets women back hundreds years,” wrote one particularly bitter Twitter user. “She objectifies women’s bodies as ‘machines’ made solely for sex. The English-level used is shameful. I wouldn’t want my kids to listen to any of that crap.”

So on Wednesday, Cardi took her Instagram to serve her haters a hefty serving of humble pie.

“Morning y’all, it’s your girl Cardi B,” she greeted her audience, bare-faced, her hair wrapped in a scarf, dressed in a floral robe. “And yes, I am Woman of the Year.” And it just got more hilarious from there.

“And for you crybabies like, ‘But she only got one song!’ Yeah, I got that song, b—h. You know, the one that sold the most? The one that streamed the most? The one that had Republicans crying on Fox News about it. The one that have a song that’s about to be six times platinum in three months. The one that had your grandma popping her p—y on TikTok. Yeah b—h, that one.”

As Cardi continued to spit facts, she then took the opportunity to highlight her political activism this year–a brand of activism that kept her younger fans both entertained and, more importantly, engaged.

“For over a year, I’ve been influencing and using my platform for y’all to vote, not just for when Joe Biden was going against Trump,” she added. “I’ve been informing y’all about y’all’s senators, midterm elections, using my money to meet up with these candidates like Bernie. Flying out, tired after shows. Yeah, that’s me, b—h.”

Never one to take un-founded criticism lying down, she continued her tirade against ill-informed haters. “Even when y’all’s crying like, ‘But she don’t represent us!’ Yes I do, b—h. I represent America,” she paused for emphasis here.

“I wanted a change, and that’s exactly what the f–k I did,” she said. She then concluded the video: “And eat it up. I’m just that b—h. Eat it up with a spoon so y’all can get a mouthful.”

Cardi B never fails to keep us fully entertained. The annual Billboard’s Women in Music event will be held on December 10th. As a side note, Jennifer Lopez will also be receiving Billboard’s Icon Award.

Cardi B’s Reebok Collaboration Is Almost Here And She’s Giving Us All A Sneak Peak Before It Drops

Cardi B’s Reebok Collaboration Is Almost Here And She’s Giving Us All A Sneak Peak Before It Drops

Reebok

Cardi B fans know the rapper most for her hit tunes, obviously her extravagant claws and now we’re about to know her for her incredible sneaker line. So move over red bottoms, because Cardi has brought her own.

In a special teaser video of her upcoming collab (which will be available to the public on November 13), Cardi B reveals the entire collection in the most Cardi way possible.

Ahead of the official release, Cardi B teased her new Reebok collection.

It was just last month (in fact on her birthday!) that Cardi B announced that she would be releasing her first-ever sneaker collaboration with Reebok. Well, that day is almost here. Along with her big announcement, she also unveiled her stunning campaign images that showed her posing with the various sneakers.

In fact, some lucky fans have already been able to get their hands on the collection via their Reebok memberships, something Cardi referred to as a “birthday gift to my loyal fans.”

Now, with just two days to go before the big release, she is teasing all of us even more with a sneak peek teaser video. In the clip, Cardi can be heard shouting expletives as a truck in the shape of the letter ‘B’ – and featuring the collection’s logo – sat at the end of her driveway. 

‘What is this?!’ she exclaimed, as two women emerged from the vehicle without a word and made their way to the rear. The leather-clad ladies opened the giant, gold-toned ‘B’ like a door, which prompted a lengthy pink carpet to unwind. Resting at the carpet’s based was a B-shaped box made out of red-crocodile skin fabric, which the two women grabbed and carried towards Cardi. 

Once the extravagant box was successfully unzipped, it popped open to reveal a cartoon version of Cardi’s signature tongue-out expression, as well as coinciding sound effects. 

A pair of the brown and off white platform Club C Cardi sneakers were positioned just under the fake mouth’s uvula. If that’s not the most Cardi-esque reveal than I don’t know what would be.

Then came the actual unboxing video which has fans eager to get their hands on the sneakers!

Once the whole production behind the delivery was done, Cardi picked up the pair of sneakers and brought them closer to her iPhone’s camera lens so that she could capture all of the intricate details.

When the Reebok representatives lifted the tongue, they accidentally exposed a red-patent leather version of Cardi’s sneakers.

‘Ah!! Oh no! I can’t show the red ones,’ shouted the hitmaker before the video abruptly ended.

“Wow! Wow! I love my @Reebok collab packaging. I never seen it in person. These will be delivered tomorrow. I love it! I hope you guys love it,’ captioned Cardi, as she unboxed the sneakers on Instagram.

The star’s shoe collab with Reebok will be available for purchase on November 14 on reebok.com. The shoes, which were designed by Cardi herself, are “laced with a whole lotta attitude.” They’re also surprisingly low-key.

“Nobody does it bigger than Cardi B—so you know we had to go all the way colossal for her birthday. The new Club C Cardi is designed in collaboration with Cardi herself, the conductor of all things luxe. And the attitude’s in the details. It’s snatched to perfection with a stacked sole and juuust the right amount of that razor-sharp Cardi edge… Cardi B always brings the heat,” Rebook’s description of the shoe says. “She brings it from the beats to the streets in these signature Club C shoes for women. They take design cues from high fashion, streetwear and Cardi’s personality to create a stand-out style. High shine patent leather and an exaggerated height represent her place in the industry. A see-through midsole and outsole symbolizes Cardi’s realness and openness.”

The shoes comes in chalk, matte gold, and core black in colors. 

The Grammy Award-winning artist revealed that her new line of Reebok sneakers will be $100 a pop. Cardi signed a deal with the brand two years ago in November 2018. Fashion collabs are hardly new for her, of course. The mother of one had collaborated in the past with brands like Balenciaga, Steve Madden, Tom Ford, and Fashion Nova.

And it’s not the first the “Bodak Yellow” rapper has worked alongside Reebok.

Few of us were surprised last year when she collaborated with Reebok and revealed some Cardi B-inspired sneakers. 

In a press release from Reebok, per Teen Vogue, they explained that the design for the sneaker was “inspired by Cardi B’s appearance in their newest campaign video, as Cardi’s flamboyant choice of fashion fits the vibe of a shoe that defies expectations with crystal additions. Each pair is specially designed and individually numbered, making these sneakers an actual work of art.”

The Cardi-inspired sneakers came after the rapper had starred in a trippy Reebok commercial that got fans speculating on what the future relationship might bring us.
