People Stared At J.Lo’s Butt, Cardi B Was A Walking Period, And More Things You’ll Only See At The Met Gala

If you missed the highly exclusive 2019 Met Gala last night, not to worry–we’ll always have the chisme. Last year, Cardi attended the infamous Gala for the first time dressed like royalty, and gave us all the Nicki Minaj drama we wanted.

This year, Katy Perry struggled to get a hamburger suit on, fans are arguing over whether Cardi most resembles a period or Nicki Minaj’s gown last year, and so much more bizarre drama went down. Vamos a ver.

Behold: Queen Cardi.

Rumor has it that it took 35 designers a collective 2,000 hour to sew this dress together. It also took four men to hold up her train, following her wherever she went last night.

Of course, the Bardi Gang took to Twitter to talk about Nicki Minaj’s outfit.

Was there ever a feud? Probably, a little bit, yes, but the fanships are at war over it. Who do you think looked more on the camp theme? Tbh, Nicki Minaj told one reporter that the “interpretation” of camp in her outfit is on her designer.

Meanwhile, Nicki Minaj fans are saying that Cardi B just remixed two previous Met Gala dresses.

It’s true that Cardi B’s dress was a showstopper, and some Twitter folks are wishing they could nap under what they think looks like the most comfortable duvet ever.

Other folks are applauding Cardi’s take on “Uterine Lining Eleganza.”

Twitter, you are a trip. Cardi B once said, “Never Again” for being mistaken as a vagina, so she went one step further. We can’t wait to see her Instagram story about how we shouldn’t make her red dress about periods.

The fanart is here because it has been 24 hours so there has been enough time.

“Cardi B #MetaGala appreciation post.”

Honestly, this is the most solid way to portray her period-inspired dress. This is either a way for Cardi B to take a big stand for women, or she was just really digging a red dress this day.

Honestly, once again, Cardi is lifting up women.

@LisaAnnWalter / Twitter

Whether she knows it or not, women are loving this look and honoring their periods all over Twitter. So far, Cardi hasn’t acknowledged this trend.

Also, did Offset and Cardi sext over the Internet?

@iamcardib / Twitter

Their music is one ode to sexting, but dang, these newlyweds are living their best life. We ship a man who publicly, in all caps, worships his “wifey.” Good for them keeping their relationship alive and fresh in the 21st century.

This anonymous man was caught red-handed staring at J.Lo’s booty.

@Instyle / Twitter

The Internet is currently deeply relating to his experience. They are also trying to figure out who the young man is that risked it all for a quick glimpse of the singer’s backside.

J.Lo savagely walked right past a struggling Katy Perry trying to don a hamburger costume?

@AlejoRoa21 / Twitter

She’s too in character with Camp to deal with these outlandish shenanigans. Also, she is already slaying her look so why would she take the time to help someone get into their hamburger suit?

Salma Hayek kissed Jared Leto’s creepy doppelgänger head, as one would.

@mladyrebecca / Twitter

It’s camp, so we don’t really know what’s going on here, but it seems as if Jared Leto brought a replica of his entire head with him. Who hasn’t wanted to do this to make sure everyone in the room knows who the best dressed it?

Salma and Penelope Cruz’s best friendship seems stronger than ever.

@leiaftsolo / Twitter

These two spent the night hanging out with each other and staring into each other’s beautiful brown eyes. We stan a sun goddess and a moon goddess coming together as one.

Camila Mendes and novio Charles Melton made their Met Gala couple debut.

@avery__thompson / Twitter

We’re all wishing anyone would look at us the way these two lovebirds look at each other. That’s a wrap, until next year!

El Mando And Yodito Are The Latino Versions Of The Baby Yoda Memes We Didn’t Know We Needed

@latinxgeeks / Twitter

Jennifer Lopez was stopped on the red carpet to get her response to Internet sensation Baby Yoda, and, after being initially caught off guard, she told Variety that she, in fact, likes Baby Yoda. If you’re Latino and, so far, you’ve just “liked” all the Baby Yoda hype and memes, let us be the first to introduce you to the Latinized series of Baby Yoda – “Yodito.” Lil’ Yodito can be found listening to Daddy Yankee or “Despacito,” no matter how many times The Mandalorian, known by the Latino Internet as ‘Papi Mando,’ turns off the radio to their spaceship. Yodito uses VapoRub, and sips tea when their abuelita asks them about ‘el novio.’ 

Yodito sees us, and we hope J.Lo sees Lil’ Yodito in all their glory.

The verdict is still out on whether J.Lo actually knows what Baby Yoda is.

The Variety reporter stopped Lopez on the red carpet of the 2019 IFP Gotham Awards at Cipriani Wall Street in New York to ask her if she’s “seen Baby Yoda.” Confusion washed over her face as she asked, “Baby Yoda? No.” The reporter tells the Nuyorican “Hustlers” producer and actress that she “has to see Baby Yoda.” She turns to someone else to ask, “What’s Baby Yoda?” As the woman begins to break down Baby Yoda to J.Lo, her glowing face breaks into a smile and she laughingly says, “Oh yes I have seen it. I like Baby Yoda. Baby Yoda’s amazing.”

For those of you who don’t live on the Internet, Baby Yoda is a character in Disney +’s The Mandalorian, a series set in the Star Wars universe. What the Internet calls “Baby Yoda” is scripted as “The Child,” who is the same species as Yoda, but appears as a small toddler, who has yet to speak a single word. The Child is actually a beautifully designed puppet, and the Mandalorian takes to him or her immediately. The Mandalorian, often called “Mando” by the other characters he meets, protects The Child in a quirky, loveable relationship. Since The Child’s appearance on Disney +, a Baby Fever has taken hold of the Internet.

On the Latino Internet, it’s more like Papi Mando taking care of Yodito with all the ways our parents took care of us.

On Latino Twitter, Mando takes care of Baby Yoda with the age-old panacea of VapoRub and that magical poem that almost always ended in a tickle fight: “Sana, sana, colita de rana…” The fact that the English-speaking world is calling The Mandalorian “Mando,” has people like Aaron Duran pointing out via Twitter that “Mando = Armando and he is clearly a space tío. Yodito shall be canon. This is the way.” Other people are asking, “Is it Yodito or Yodita? I don’t want to assume the babies’ gender.” To clarify, Yodito is already 50 years old, but simply has the appearance of a baby. 

All we know is that we agree with @LatinGeeks: “Baby Yodito is truly one of us.”

Tío Mando is letting Yodito learn his own lessons and letting him try Flamin’ Hot Cheetos. It’s what all our tíos told us when we wanted to try a sip of their Patron, also. “El Mando y Yodito is my favorite novela,” tweeted Latinx Geeks. 

Just yesterday, Julián Castro tweeted a photo of Yodito sipping Lipton tea alongside some political tea: “If the Democratic Party wants a field that’s representative of its members and its voters, it probably shouldn’t have two states as white as Iowa and New Hampshire vote first every year,” Castro retweeted Nate Silver. In fact, Yodito is trending even higher than most 2020 Democratic presidential candidates, according to Axios.

Yup, Yodito has their own extremely miniature esclava.

CREDIT: @LATINXGEEKS / TWITTER

Yeah, but when is Mando piercing Yodito’s ears? It’s long overdue,” Enrique Rea asked. Another Yodito fan posited that Yodito probably smells like that Royal Violets cheap perfume our mamis subjected us to as infants. As the Internet began asking what Baby Yoda’s first word will be, Latino Internet definitively answered. Yodito’s first world will be “Papi.” *cries*

Yodito is also probably “gay as hell.”

CREDIT: @LATINXGEEKS / TWITTER

*sips tea* I feel so seen. Thank you @LatinxGeeks for making Yodito uniquely belonging to Latinos. We think that J.Lo needs to meet Yodito to move past her mere like-dom for Baby Yoda. Yodito is the most loveable muñeco lindo on the Internet right now.

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

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

UMG Recordings, Inc.

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.
