Cardi B Pretty Much Saved The 2017 MTV VMAs After All Those Bad Katy Perry Jokes

Katy Perry hosted the 2017 MTV Video Music Awards last night in Las Vegas, and there were lots of ups and downs. Kendrick Lamar opened the show with a fiery medley of “DNA” and “Humble” and went home with the most awards of the night. He won a total of six moon statues, including Video of the Year for “Humble.”  A barefooted Paris Jackson spoke about Charlottesville, and sort of railed against President Trump, saying that people should “resist.” The mother of Heather Heyer, the young woman killed in Charlottesville, also made a powerful speech, and MTV invited transgender troops to attend the show.

But all that didn’t help the show’s host. Perry’s jokes were corny AF all night, and it appeared they didn’t land as well as she hoped.

From the opening monologue, Perry — or Perry’s writers — failed miserably at being funny. The Cut called Perry’s hosting duties “cringeworthy” and described her jokes as “dad-like.”

Thankfully, Cardi B was there to save the VMAs.

Cardi B was sorta kinda the true opener of the VMAs with her performance of “Bodak Yellow” during the pre-show.

Cardi B was also asked if she and rapper Offset were engaged. Her response was classic!

Even when singer Alessia Cara came out to sing “Scars to Your Beautiful,” people thought it was Cardi B!

Watch Cara’s entire performance here.

Then Cardi B came out to introduce Demi Lovato — but first, she gave a shout out to NFL player Colin Kaepernick.

“Colin Kaepernick, as long as you kneel with us, we gonna be standing for you baby.” Wow!

As she gave him props, she almost had a nip-slip!

Damn, that was a close call!

Thanks for representing, Cardi!

Cardi B Used A Racial Slur To Describe Her Daughter And Now She’s Getting Educated

Cardi B has her flaws and blind spots and as such as faced quite a bit of backlash throughout her career for the times that she has misspoken or used stereotypes offhandedly.

Last year, we reported that the Dominican/ Trinidadian rapper had previously claimed in resurfaced 2020 live-stream on Instagram that in the past she “had drugged and robbed men” who had solicited her for sex. In another resurfaced clip, Cardi B claimed that boyfriends who cheated on her would experience her seducing them with the promise of a threesome only to reveal the morning after that their partner was a transwoman much to her boyfriends’ distress. At the time, it didn’t take long for fans and advocates to lambast her for her ignorant use of a transwoman to get revenge, while also potentially putting them in harm’s way.

It turns out the “Bodack Yellow,” rapper is still in need of some lessons.

The rapper landed herself in hot water over the weekend after using an Asian slur while describing her daughter’s eye shape.

Okay one more pic of this look and THATS IT !

A post shared by Cardi B (@iamcardib) on

It all began when the mother to 2-year-old daughter Kulture shared a photo of what she might look like as an adult. In the comments, a fan was quick to point out that in the image looked like a combination of the rapper’s husband Offset and her sister Hennessy.

In response that has now been deleted Cardi B wrote “I think cause Hennessy got c*****y eyes like offset and so [does] KK. Its the only think [sic] I could think off [sic].”

Fans and critics were quick to call the Grammy award winner out for the use of the racial slur. To which she responded it came from a place of ignorance “I didn’t know that c—-y eyes was a slur like wtfff I DONT KNOW F–KIN EVERYTHING !!” she wrote in a tweet that has now been deleted. “We don’t even use that as a (sic) insult and I didn’t use it as a (sic) insult.”

In response to the backlash, she received in 2019, for her comments about once drugging and robbing men while she was a stripper, claimed to not be “perfect.”

“I never claim to be perfect or come from a perfect world wit [sic] a perfect past I always speak my truth I always own my s–t,” Cardi explained to fans at the time. “Im apart [sic] of a hip hop culture where you can talk about where you come from talk about the wrong things you had to do to get where you are. There are rappers that glorify murder violence drugs an [sic] robbing. Crimes they feel they had to do to survive. I never glorified the things I brought up in that (Instagram) live I never even put those things in my music because I’m not proud of it and feel a responsibility not to glorify it.”

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 ♥️

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
