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”

CREDIT: @iamcardib / Instagram

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”

CREDIT: @iamcardib / Instagram

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”

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

15. “You keep in contact with certain exes”

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

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.

This Is The Trippiest Commercial I’ve Seen But Somehow Cardi B And Reebok Make It Work And I Can’t Stop Watching

She has never shied away from getting the biggest, baddest, sharpest and most decorated nails around. But now Cardi B has been taken to the next level in the nail game with nails that come to life with just a thought and can act as new limbs.

In the latest campaign for her brand partnership with Reebok, released Tuesday, the rapper takes viewers to the beauty salon.

A sneaker deal is a rapper’s rite of passage. And Cardi B has famously partnered with Fashion Nova and Steve Madden in the past, but last November she announced she would partner with Reebok, the classic sneaker and athletic-clothing brand.

On Tuesday, the company released a new advertisement, and at its center is the “Press” rapper. It’s absurdist, attention-grabbing, and completely Cardi B.

The video is next level Cardi B realness.

While chatting with a friend under hair dryers everyone in the shop is alerted to Cardi’s one untied sneaker. Without missing a beat, she wills her already long, pink, jewel encrusted nails to do the task for her.

The video sees her nails grow a few feet and work independently to tie up her shoe before retreating back to a more normal length. 

With a freshly tied pair of Reebok’s Classic Club C, she turns to a customer and simply says ‘nailed it.’ Living!

These are the hot tenís she’s rocking in her new commerical that she also played a part in designing.

Reebok spoke on the collab with Cardi, and said, “The film is a salute to Cardi’s own life experience, which saw her challenge expectations to become a self-made maven and incorporates boundary-pushing nail art that has become an iconic feature of her style.”

As for the shoes, Reebok describes vintage Club C’s as , “Take it down to pure essence with clean lines and a classic lineage. A Union Jack symbol along the side profile calls up heritage style. No excess, no riffraff. Made for icons.

And the shoes are currently on sale for $75.

People are absolutely living for her ad with the sneaker brand.

Even though it looks like, at least on Twitter, people didn’t even realize the rapper had a collab with Reebok.

But her ad seems to be working because people are already posting screenshots of them buying Cardi’s new shoes.

While some are calling the ad absurd and totally attention grabbing. But ain’t that straight up Cardi B?

I wouldn’t want anything less from Cardi B.

How badly do you want to see Jennifer Lopez, Constance Wu, Lizzo, and Cardi B dancing, stripping, and racking up pyramids of cash from unsuspecting dudes? A lot? Perfect: keep scrolling.

The sickening trailer for the badass film ‘Hustlers’ is finally here.

The trailer dropped Tuesday night at midnight and fans of strippers, fierce women, and especially Cardi B, we’re all totally here for it.

The film follows the story of a group of women who have formed their own extended family. They’re all strippers in the NYC area but then they decide to go bigger and start drugging and robbing ultra-wealthy Wall Street types.

The movie is actually inspired by a true story from a now-viral magazine story.

The article, titled “The Hustlers at Scores” by Jessica Pressler, chronicles the real-life, modern Robin Hood story of a ring of strippers who ripped off wealthy clients.

The film is centered on two badass women, Destiny (Constance Wu) and Ramona (Jennifer Lopez).

Destiny is struggling to make ends meet and is helping to take care of her abuelita so she turns to stripping. This is how she meets Ramona who takes her under her wing and teaches Destiny everything she knows.

I mean Jennifer Lopez, on a pole, showing Constance Wu the moves. I. Am. Here. For. This!

Together with their extended family, these women decide to rob from the rich to help care for their loved ones.

Based off true events, J.Lo’s, Constance Wu’s, Cardi B’s, and Lizzo’s characters step up their hustle to include drugging men and robbing them of thousands of dollars.

In one scene, J Lo’s character explains it away as simply taking money from bad Wall Street guys who stole money from everyone during the financial crisis.

Things start to get real cray cray real quick.

The women end up drugging many of their clients to complete their heists…so you can see how things could quickly take a turn for the unexpected.

The plotline is amazing but many fans are here to support this gorgeous, talented, diverse cast of incredible women!

The casting director for this movie 100% deserves some serious stanning.

In addition to Jennifer Lopez and Constance Wu in badass lead roles but fans will also see Cardi B, Keke Palmer, Lizzo, and Usher on the big screen. Like what did we do deserve this masterpiece?!

Some in the Bardi-gang took to Twitter to say they’re kinda disappointed by the trailer.

They wanted more Cardi.

But whoever is running the Hustlers’ Twitter account was quick to calm their nerves.

According to the ‘Hustlers’ Twitter feed, “Cardi B is this movie.” Apparently, they didn’t wanna give it all away so soon. So Cardi B fans better get ready for her big screen acting debut.

Overall, ‘Hustlers’ looks like it just may be one of the fiercest movies of 2019.

See you at the movies!
