You may have heard of Olivia Rodrigo, the 17-year-old Disney Channel actress who has recently take the music industry by storm with the success of her debut single, “Driver’s License”.

Well you wouldn’t be the only one who is thinking about her. Recently, Cardi B tweeted about the viral song, namely lamenting over the fact that she does not have her driver’s license.

On Tuesday, Cardi tweeted out her frustration about the fact that she has to rely on other people to fulfill her late-night McDonald’s cravings.

“Just like that girl [who] wrote a song about getting her driver’s license, Imma write a song about the struggle of not having a drivers license,” she wrote. “I really wanted my McDonald’s at 4am last night instead of today, but I couldn’t so I felt asleep hungry.” More relatable words have never been spoken, tbh.

Shocked that the Bronx-born rapper even knows who she is, Rodrigo tweeted a response back at Cardi.

“Girl i will pick u up and take u wherever u wanna go,” Rodrigo wrote back.

Cardi, for her part, seemed excited to find a driver to take her on late-night McDonald’s runs. She wrote back: “Yaaayyy!!! Let’s go to McDonald’s and get happy meals!”

Cue the influx of Twitter stans demanding a future Olivia Rodrigo x Cardi B collab.

Olivia Rodrigo is just as surprised about “Driver’s License” success as everyone else is.

Rodrigo recently told Billboard that this past week, when “Driver’s License” shot to No. 1 on the Hot 100 chart has been “the weirdest week of my whole life.”

Rodrigo was a relatively unknown Disney Channel star on Disney+’s “High School Musical: The Musical: The Series” before this song hit the airwaves. Now she’s a pop sensation.

“So many people that I look up to have reached out and expressed their love for the song, which is absolutely surreal,” she told Billboard. But I truly am just the same 17-year-old girl, doing statistics homework in my bedroom.”

While many people are wondering what Rodrigo’s background is, she is proudly half-Filipino.

While some people have mistakenly called Olivia Rodriguez Latina, she is actually of Filipino descent, just like previous “High School Musical” star, Vanessa Hudgens. Just like Latin American countries, the Philippines were colonized by Spain–that is why so many people of Filipino descent have Spanish-sounding last names.

Rodrigo has talked at length about her cultural and familial roots. “My great-grandfather immigrated here from the Philippines when he was just a teenager. He’s my grandma’s dad, and my grandpa is also Filipino as well,” Rodrigo revealed in an interview with the Center for Asian American Media back in 2018.

“My dad grew up in a house where they were always making Filipino food, his grandpa always spoke Tagalog. All of those traditions have trickled down to our generation.”

Cardi B Files Trademark For ‘Bardi Beauty’ After Hinting That She Wants to Launch Her Own Makeup Line

Cardi B doesn’t stop hustling. Recently, the Bronx-born rapper filed legal documents to trademark the phrase “Bardi Beauty”. That means that Cardi B is thinking of getting into the makeup and beauty game.

So, in essence, Cardi B is planning a full takeover of the beauty industry. And we can’t wait! Cardi B’s past red carpet and photoshoot looks have practically broken the internet with their creativity and innovation.

This trademark filing comes to no surprise to fans who have been closely following the rapper’s business life. Cardi B has been teasing the idea of releasing a beauty line for years. Just last month, Cardi claimed that she wanted to start a haircare line for Afro-Latinas.

Earlier this year, Cardi announced on Instagram: “This year I will be coming out with a hair[care] line that I been working on at home for my hair and my daughter’s.”

“Being Hispanic/Latina don’t make your hair long, don’t make your skin light, or don’t make your face features slim, [e]specially Latin countries from the Caribbean islands,” she further explained on Twitter. “DNA [has] something to do with your hair, not your nationality.

“Bardi Beauty” would be one of many business spin-offs that Cardi would commit her time to. It was only a matter of time before she went the beauty route with Bardi Beauty.

The Grammy-winning rapper already has had massive success collaborating with brands like Reebok, Steve Madden, and Fashion Nova.

Fellow music jefas Rihanna and Selena Gomez have created lucrative beauty brands like Fenty Beauty and Rare Beauty to great fanfare. In fact, creating a beauty brand to go along with her music brand seems like a natural thing for Cardi B to do.

Let’s hope that Bardi Beauty will take the Fenty Beauty route and create products for people of different races, ethnicities, and skin colors.

Cardi B Calls Out Politician For Rehashing ‘WAP’ Grammy Performance Instead Of Police Brutality

Cardi B Calls Out Politician For Rehashing ‘WAP’ Grammy Performance Instead Of Police Brutality

The nation is focused on racial injustice and police brutality while some politicians kept their heads in the sand. One of those politicians was Rep. Glenn Grothman.

Rep. Glenn Grothman (R-Wis.) is still out here talking about Cardi B.

Cardi B performed her hit song “WAP” featuring Megan thee Stallion at this year’s Grammys. The rapper decided to take the song out of the running for awards but still delivered a showstopping performance. The Grammys were held on March 14, 2021 and some conservative politicians are discussing the performance more than a month later.

“I’ve received some complaints in my office, and rightfully so, about Cardi B and the Grammys,” Rep. Grothman said on the House floor. “They wonder why we are paying the FCC if they feel this should be in living rooms across the nation. Wake up, FCC, and begin to do your job. The moral decline of America is partly due to your utter complacency.”

Cardi B was having none of it.

The verdict in the Derek Chauvin case was announced on April 20, the same day that Ma’Khia Bryant was shot and killed by police. Yet, Rep. Grothman takes time to discuss a month-old musical performance. Cardi B was not having it and she made it known.

In her tweet, Cardi B calls out the politician blatantly bringing up a nonissue to distract from what was happening in the U.S. Instead, Rep. Grothman uses his constituents to distract from police brutality terrorizing the Black community.

She then used the moment to remind people of how important it is to go out and vote.

Cardi B has been a political voice for a few years and it surprised people when she first started to use her voice. She has interviewed presidential candidates and taken a strong stand on several hot button issues.

She used the moment to remind people that if they want to change this they have to vote. These people are elected by people and hold their positions of power because of voters who turn out. In order to change representation you do not like, you have to vote and organize people to vote.

A Democratic Wisconsin group asked for Cardi B to highlight the work they are doing.

You can’t really blame them for shooting their shot, right?
