The Queen Of Rap Shows Love For The Queen Of Pop And We Are All Freaking Out

If you follow the online chatter, it’s no surprise that Cardi B is a megafan when it comes to Britney Spears. So it should be even less of a surprise that Cardi B has come to the defense of Britney during her most recent personal struggles. The Queen of Pop was recently in a care facility for her mental health and it set off a firestorm of comparisons to the 2007 Britney Spears we all remember. Here’s how Cardi B reacted when asked about the recent news about one of America’s greatest icons.

In a recent ET interview, Cardi B came out swinging for Britney and, well, check it out.

Cardi B touched on her admiration for the pop star and even said she loves the idea of a possible Cardi B x Britney Spears collaboration in the future. [gasps in gaytino]

However, things got serious when the topic of Spears’s recent personal struggles came up – including a restraining order against her ex-manager and a stay at a mental health facility.

“I love you and I totally understand,” Cardi B said in a heartfelt message to Spears. “Fame will really drive you insane. Not only will fame drive you insane, but it’s like, once you have money, and everybody just wants to take it from you, or sometimes you just have, like, your own personal problems.”

It is one of the most succinct ways to explain why celebrities some times snap. The pressures of being famous is a lot for some people to handle. Cardi B understands and even sees hoe it can cause someone to snap and lose all control of themselves.

How often do we get to see celebs having one another’s back? Especially with something so sensitive. People are so grateful that a fellow celeb, someone who has experienced the pressures of fame, is speaking up on these issues.

Cardi B then went on to lament the lack of privacy for celebrities and said she sympathizes with Spears. Cardi B also understands that the length of time Spears has been in the public eye is even more of an obstacle.

“When you’re a celebrity, everyone wants to sue you, everyone wants a piece of the money that you work for,” Cardi B continued. “It’s very frustrating.”

The singer also had a fangirl moment when she saw Spears working out to her hit song “I Like It.”

“It’s so dope because I’m a very big Britney Spears fan,” Cardi told ET, before launching into a little bit of Britney’s 2007 hit, “Piece of Me.”

Meanwhile, the Mississippi native checked out of the California facility after she completed her 30-day treatment on April 25.

Spears herself has also tried setting the record straight on some of the gossip that was going on around her. In a recent Instagram post, she says “I just wanted to say hi because things that are being sad have just gotten out of control!!! Wow!!! There’s rumors, death threats to my family and my team and just so many things crazy things being said. I am trying to take a moment for myself, but everything that’s happening is just making it harder for me. Don’t believe everything you read and hear.”

This all adds more drama to the #FreeBritney movement.

Even Spears asked the judge for certain adjustments to her conservatorship but didn’t get them. This must make the support from a fellow star that much more special.

We’re rooting for you Britney and truly hope that Cardi B x Britney collab happens soon.

Foul-Mouthed Karen Yells At People To Stop Playing Bad Bunny And Play ‘American’ Music Instead

Puerto Rico is part of the United States. Puerto Ricans are American citizens (without the right to vote). Music made in Puerto Rico would then be considered American music since it is part of the U.S. However, one Karen in Wisconsin just doesn’t understand that and had a complete meltdown.

A very angry white woman went on an expletive-filled rant against people barbecuing in the park because of their music.

My first Karen was today. Todo por que no le gusta la musica que escuchamos 😂 #KarenWantTalkToTheManager Stop Being Racist. To use this video in a commercial player or in broadcasts, please email licensing@storyful.com

A woman made a point recently to verbally attack a Puerto Rican family while barbecuing in a park. What did they do to offend the woman? They were playing Bad Bunny. The woman, who has not been identified, called on the group to play American music because they are in America.

“You are so fucking disrespectful,” the Wisconsin Karen told the group when they called her disrespectful. “Puerto Ricans. Fuck all this.”

During her rant, the group turns on Bad Bunny’s “Safaera” and continued to argue with her.

“Safaera” is one of Bad Bunny’s most popular songs. It would be pretty hard to convince people that this song is something that should be turned off. Like, Why can’t people just enjoy their time out and about without having to get into a racist, xenophobic argument?

Some Puerto Ricans on Twitter made sure to remind her how lucky she is to be in Wisconsin.

This isn’t the first time someone was verbally harassed in a park for showing their Puerto Rican heritage. One man was charged with a hate crime after trying to attack a woman in Chicago who was wearing a shirt with a Puerto Rican flag on it. It is a true testament to their resolve that the Puerto Rican family being yelled at were able to stay calm and level-headed. Granted, they did argue back but it seems they were provoked.

It seems the woman needs a basic civics lesson on how Puerto Ricans are Americans.

A poll conducted by Morning Consult found that half of Americans do not know that Puerto Ricans are U.S. citizens. The confusion has been exacerbated by President Trump during the early stages of Hurricane Maria recovery. The Trump administration has been criticized for its treatment of Puerto Rico.

People commented on the Facebook video about how else the situation could have been handled.

If she wants to hear American music, then let her hear American music. Crank that volume all the way up and let her hear the true range of American music. There’s nothing better than educating someone when they let their ignorance be known.

One person is just feeling bad for the man clearly trying to get the confrontational woman moving.

He really just wants to keep it moving. It is almost like he realized before she did that being on camera saying racist things is not a good look in the time of social media and doxxing.

Smartphones have changed the way we live by giving us a chance to capture moments like this and broadcast them to the world. Social media serves as a way to really make the most out of the public shaming.

A post shared by Cardi B (@iamcardib) on

The rapper posted this beautiful picture of herself earlier this week after revealing that she had a new tattoo finished on her back. “Okay guys! Soooo here it is! It took me several months but I’m finally finished. This is my back tattoo! It goes from the top of my back to the middle of my thigh,” Cardi wrote in a caption to her Instagram. In a separate clip to her Instagram, she credited tattoo artist Jamie Schene of Union3Tattoo for the work.

I mean… just look at her.

In a recent post to her Instagram page, the rapper got real about her pictures and admitted to being about that “suck it in life.”

Suck it in life .

A post shared by Cardi B (@iamcardib) on

“I suck the s–t out my stomach for this pic so appreciated,” she wrote in the caption to her Instagram post. In it, Cardi can be seen wearing a teeny bikini and lace-up stilettos. To follow up, the rapper shared another Instagram video, this time of herself walking towards the camera in her bikini, and faulting her body. When she turns she shows off her side profile and lets out her stomach. And tbh we love the natural curves!

Of course, it didn’t take long for fans to flock to the comments and gas up the rapper.

“Same here sis!!! ,” Antonique Smith the actress from “Notorious” wrote in the captions. “Thank you for the honesty!” “If this ain’t da realest shii,” sevyn added to the comments.

It’s no surprise the rapper is being open about her body. She has a long history of being honest about her own body positivity and experiences with liposuction and receiving plastic surgery after giving birth to daughter Kulture. In an interview with E! she explained that speaking openly about the procedures was important for her she does not “like lying about things.”
