Cardi B Is Unapologetically Herself And Proves It By Shutting Down This Caller – In Spanish – During Her Vacilón De La Mañana Interview

Cardi B wants you to know that she’s not making music for your kids or your grandkids. In a recent interview on New York City’s FM 97.9 “El Vacilón De La Mañana,” a show known for making your dad laugh and your abuela blush – appropriate for Cardi B’s “get out of my face” attitude – an abuela called in to speak with Cardi. The abuela, trying to be as respectful as she saw fit, tells Cardi that her kids and grandkids love her music, but she has one problem with it herself: the swear words. Cardi B, wasn’t having it.

Cardi B had to pump the breaks on this grandma who was trying to tell the rapper about her music. And she did it in pure Dominicana fashion.

She stops the caller with a strong case for artistic independence saying, in Spanish, “No no no no no, let me tell you, I’m not raising your kids or grandkids. I’m not raising them. The only kids I’m going to have to explain myself to are my kids.” She goes on to further explain how not expressing herself the way she wants to would leave her depressed.

“I’m not going to water down my life, just to be a good example to people,” she said. “Then I won’t be who I am.” Word up, tell’ em, Cardi!

At one point DJ Aneudy nails it saying “ella es ella,” meaning, she’s exactly who she is. You’re damn right. ???

Most people with tattoos have one that they would not mind updating. It is probably your first tattoo or a tattoo that you got on a whim. If you’ve seen Cardi B, you have definitely noticed her peacock tattoo. Well, there’s been a major update on that tattoo.

Cardi B updated her peacock tattoo and is not shy about showing off the fresh ink.

So inlove with tatt ♥️

A post shared by Cardi B (@iamcardib) on

There are a lot of things to notice about the new tattoo. First of all, the tattoo is beautiful. The new colors and the detail are so impressive. It is so well done that the tattoo does not look like a touch-up. Instead, the cover-up tattoo looks like a brand new tattoo.

Here’s a side by side so you can see the full glow-up of this tattoo.

The tattoo artist behind this cover-up went all the way in. There is more to this tattoo than a few touches here and there to change part. The entire tattoo was transformed. Even a butterfly got added to the new and improved flower under the peacock.

Fans are floored by the change in the tattoo.

We have seen Cardi B showing off that tattoo for years yet we have never really taken a good look at it. It is not bad but it is not the most incredible. Honestly, that is an almost necessary thing for Cardi B to do. She is way too famous now to have a busted tattoo covering her entire leg. We expect more now that she is the music sensation she it.

Like, we are almost embarrassed for the tattoo artist who first gave Cardi B that peacock tattoo.

But, you know what. There is nothing to be embarrassed about. Some times people do the best that they can do and we can only assume that this is what happened there. Honestly, the new tattoo artist has a road map to follow so it could be argued that cardi B would not have this tattoo had it not been for the first tattoo artist.

Congratulations on the new ink, Cardi B!

This new tattoo is incredible. The artist who made this happen is clearly worth the money and clout. 10/10

Haters Tried To Shame Cardi B With Photoshopped Images Of Her At Target And Boy Did She Clap Back

Body shamers gonna hate.

It’s been a brutal start to summer for us all but Cardi B has proved that she continues to thrive. With regular pics of herself flaunting her looks on Instagram, the Dominican rapper has not shied away from sharing images of herself in an array of wigs, her natural locks, or in stringy bikinis.

And while the celebration of her looks should be admired by all, some have opted to attempt to stomp on it all.

Recently, an edited image of Cardi B at Target began circulating on social media.

Earlier this week, pictures of Cardi shopping in Target began to pop up online. The images showed the rapper shopping and wearing exercise gear and people were quick to attempt to “body shame” her for appearing to gain weight. Trolls quickly made their way over to Cardi B’s profile page and accused the artist of editing the bikini pictures that she recently posted on Instagram.

Fortunately, it didn’t take long for Cardi to catch wind of the commotion and defend herself on Instagram by posting more bikini videos.

In a series of images to her Instagram story, the “Bodak Yellow” rapper shared a video of herself in her underwear and admitted she’d “gained a little weight” while in quarantine. In one picture she replied to trolls by saying “My shorty told me that he like it like that.”

Hours later, Cardi followed up her posts with a bikini video where she hit back at trolls for editing the Target images.

Still upholding her good sense of humor, Cardi put the video on pause and let out a breath joking that she had been holding her stomach because she’d eaten breakfast, lunch, and had some ice cream. “I know y’all ain’t body-shaming me,” she said towards the end of the video. “Now, I know I gained a little weight…it doesn’t matter though, a bitch got lipo money. I got lipo money.”

Cardi has been transparent about the efforts she’s made to enhance her body via surgery in the past.

In May of last year, the rapper was at a performance at the Beale Street Music Festival, when she disclosed to fans that she had recently received liposuction surgery.

Later in an interview with Entertainment Tonight, the rapper said that she wanted to be honest and open about her decision to undergo the surgery because she wanted “to explain to people how hard it is to process. I feel like people look at girls on Instagram and go, ‘Oh, they got their lipo done and it was so easy,”‘ she said. “It is just such a long, hard process, almost like the same process as after you give birth to a baby and you see your body change.”

She also took to Instagram Live last year to talk more about her decision to undergo the procedure telling fans about the difficulties involved with juggling recovery and a busy work schedule “I can’t even feel my body, shit hurts.”

A transparent queen with a sense of humor. Gotta love it!
