Fans Grow Frustrated With Cardi B After She Once Again Defends Offset From Cheating Allegations

We all know by now that Cardi B isn’t shy when it comes to talking about her relationship with offset. This time, she was addressing yet another round of cheating allegations that have been leveled at her husband. On Tuesday, Cardi B took to Instagram live to set the record straight about the latest incident in the long line of drama the couple has been involved in.

It all started on Tuesday, when Tekashi 6ix9ine’s girlfriend Sarah “Jade” Wattley revealed on Instagram that she was receiving DMs from Offset, one of which read “miss you fr [sic]”. Wattley, for her part was not impressed, captioning the post: “Your wife Cardi B has an open criminal case. Why are you writing me[?]”. In case you need a refresher, Wattley is one of the women that has accused Cardi of assaulting her outside a strip club.

But according to both Offset and Cardi, the entire DM exchange was a result of his Instagram account being hacked.

After Wattley shared Offset’s DMs with her followers, later that night a series of sexually explicit and offensive Tweets were posted on Offset’s Twitter account. The tweets were so outrageous that it became obvious to many Twitter users that Offset was not the one writing them. The logical conclusion was to believe that, he had, indeed, been hacked. 

But, some critics have been quick to point out that the timing of the very out-of-character Tweets from Offset seemed to be a little too convenient.There has even been some speculation that Offset staged the offensive tweets in order to cover up his transgressions. As one observant Twitter user observed: “Offset sent the DM at 1:36AM and [Wattley] posted it at 2:30PM. Then he got “hacked” at 2:35PM…He should have gotten the tweets off right after he sent the DM”.

Cardi, for her part, didn’t seem to be taking the entire debacle too seriously. 

The 27-year-old “Clout” rapper got on IG live (along with Offset  and Kulture) to address her fans. Looking a little disheveled and more than a little sleepy, Cardi took turns addressing both the camera and her husband. In a statement that seemed to be pretty supportive of her husband and trusting of his actions, she said: 

“Hey guys, so as you can see, this guy’s Instagram has been hacked,” she said. “I know babe, you’ve done some dumb shit. Everybody knows he’s done some dumb shit. But come on now, [he’s] not dumb, he’s not crazy, we’ve been so good, we had a sweet weekend, our life has been good, he’s not going to play himself like that. That’s why I’m not going to entertain that, that’s why I’m not getting rowdy. Simple as that”.

This latest scandal is simply another addition to the dramatic chronicles of Offset and Cardi.

Not did Offset admit to being unfaithful to Cardi, but Cardi B felt that she needed to retaliate against the women with whom he cheated with. In August of 2018, Cardi was allegedly involved in a premeditated violent altercation outside Angels NYC Strip Club–an altercation that left Cardi facing two felony counts

Unsurprisingly, the reaction to Cardi B’s Instagram video defending Offset has been mixed. A lot of people are fed up with Cardi defending a man who has, historically, treated her with little respect.

And as with most scandals that involved Belcalis Almanzar, Twitter has not hesitated to air their thoughts on Cardi’s handling of another cheating scandal.

Because Cardi has been so previously open with her personal life, many people feel invested in her personal life to the degree where they want to comment on it publicly. And a lot of people don’t think Cardi is making the smartest decision by sticking by Offset. 

This person believes that Cardi may be defending Offset because she’s tired of the drama.

A lot of us have been in this type of situation before. 

This person was not about all the Tweets calling Cardi a “clown” for staying with Offset

It is frustrating that Cardi is the one that’s being made fun of when Offset is the one who has admitted to being unfaithful before. 

This person felt the need to defend their frustration with Cardi:

It can be frustrating to see a celebrity you admire so much act in a way that you don’t agree with.

And of course, there were the obligatory memes about the entire situation: 

Sometimes, all you can do is laugh.

Bad Bunny’s ‘Yo Perreo Sola’ Music Video Has Drag, Female Empowerment, And Artistic Styling That Is World-Class

Bad Bunny is known to push gender norms and supports the LGBTQ+ community. His music videos are artistic expressions of the world he wants to live in. His latest music video for the song “Yo Perreo Sola” is catching everyone’s attention for several reasons including the trapero singing and dancing in full drag.

Bad Bunny starts his “Yo Perreo Sola” music video in a hot red leather drag outfit.

Like, dayum. The Puerto Rican trap star did not hold back. His look was everything as he gave us some “Oops…I Did It Again” dominatrix vibes. The fans were not prepared for this but it seems that most of them are all for Bad Bunny pushing boundaries even further in Latin trap.

The imagery is literally being celebrated for its strong statement for the LGBTQ+ community.

Bad Bunny was very outspoken about Alexa Negrón Luciano, a trans woman who was murdered in Puerto Rico and misgendered in media reports. The singer was on “The Late Show starring Jimmy Fallon” and used the moment to protest the treatment of Luciano’s legacy. Bad Bunny wore a shirt that read in Spanish, “They killed Alexa, not a man in a skirt.”

Bad Bunny fans were ready to defend their fave and his new music video.

To many, Latin trap is still a place where homophobia and misogyny fester in lyrics by some of the top performers. Bad Bunny is one artist that has been fighting against that culture from within. He has bent gender norms in music videos and it has set his career apart from other Latin trap musicians.

And they are all celebrating the anguish of straight men who listen to Bad Bunny and have social hang-ups.

The same homophobia in Latin trap is reflected within the community. Bad Bunny’s unapologetic willingness to take gender and flip it on its head is just one thing fans love about the trapero.

Bad Bunny never disappoints, does he?

Someone Turned Cardi B’s Coronavirus Rant Into A Remix Now It’s On The Billboard Charts

Cardi B/ Instagram

Who knew Cardi B’s rants could be music to someone’s ears.

If you haven’t already heard, Cardi B went one very long Instagram rant about the Coronavirus pandemic and its global repercussions. Last Wednesday, the Dominican rapper posted a 46-second video on Instagram airing out her fears and grievances about the disease. Towards the end of the clip Cardi B delivered the lines “Coronavirus! S*** is real! S*** is getting real!”

Now it’s Billboard hit.

Over the weekend, the Brooklyn-based DJ iMarkkeyz chopped up the soundbite and released a track called “Coronavirus.” The bit has Cardi B’s rant on loop as a trap beat plays beneath it. It didn’t take long for “Coronavirus” to take off– the song we mean. The song broke into the pop charts internationally in Bulgaria and Brazil over the weekend and eventually began to climb the ranks of iTunes. By Thursday the song was top 10 in the United States iTunes chart.

You might think the song’s virality is just another schtick but uh uh.

Cardi B and iMarkkeyz have pledged to donate proceeds from streams and downloads to go towards those affected by Coronavirus.

According to Billboard “As preliminary reports indicated, the remixed tune ‘Coronavirus’ sold 3,000 copies in the week ending March 19, according to Nielsen Music/MRC Data. The sales total prompts a No. 9 debut on Billboard’s Rap Digital Song Sales and a No. 13 start on the R&B/Hip-Hop Digital Song Sales charts dated March 28. In addition, ‘Coronavirus’ picked up 626,000 U.S. on-demand streams in the same period”
