Cardi B Reveals The Three Words You Will Never Hear Her Rap, But Are They Really That Bad?

It’s no secret that Cardi B is totally OK with explicit lyrics. One listen to her latest hit ‘WAP’ – with Megan Thee Stallion – and you’ll hear the word ‘pussy’ an impressive 18 times. Not to mention some other very descriptive terms, phrases, and euphemisms.

The song has garnered attention largely because of its lyrics and it’s caused an uproar among conservatives who have even lobbied for the song to be banned. However, that’s only added to its popularity. And Cardi B has no intention of backing down. Though, the rapper admits, there are some words she’ll never include in one of her songs.

Cardi B talks the three words she’ll never put in a song and the list might surprise you.

Cardi B has no issue with talking about her ‘wet ass pussy’ or wanting her lover to ‘make it cream, make me scream.’ But it looks like even Cardi has limits when it comes to certain words she won’t use in her songs.

In an interview on The Kyle and Jackie O radio show last week, the ‘Bodak Yellow’ rapper confessed that there are some words she really doesn’t like.

“I mean, ugh, ‘discharge’ is kind of gross,” she told the hosts. “A cringy word to me is ‘moist’. I just hate it. She added, “And I hate the word ‘horchata’. It’s a Mexican drink. It’s really good, but I just hate that word.”

Really Cardi, these are the words you hate? I mean ‘moist’ is a pretty commonly accepted gross word. In fact, 20% of the population has a serious aversion to the word ‘moist,’ too.

However, some fans point out that horchata has already made its appearance in a Cardi track.

Once the interview went live and people started hearing about her short list of hated words, fans started pointing out hat she’s already actually used one of the words before.

Turns out, she uses the word ‘horchata’ in her song with Bruno Mars, ‘Please Me’. One Twitter user tweeted, “Cardi B said in an interview that she hates the word horchata & would never use it in a song…isn’t it in that song with Bruno Mars?”

The discussion came about during a chat about the lyrics of ‘WAP’ – which definitely features some explicit language.

Meanwhile, talking about the explicit version of ‘WAP’, host Kyle said he preferred it to the clean radio edit, which changes the lyrics from “wet ass pussy” to “wet and gushy.” Agreeing, Cardi replied, “I would have had to replace it with ‘bounce that big old booty’, because that’s the only thing that rhymed. It was really hard to clean this song up, because I hate the word gushy.” 

Cardi also defended the song against critics, adding: “The people that the song bothers are usually conservatives or really religious people, but my thing is I grew up listening to this type of music. Other people might think it’s strange and vulgar, but to me it’s almost like really normal, you know what I’m saying?”

Meanwhile, there’s a growing list of Cardi B terms that should definitely be added to the dictionary.

Cardi B isn’t just a name; it’s a languageand everybody’s speaking it. So why shouldn’t she be added into the dictionary?

  • Regular degular shmegular: a humble way to describe oneself. Cardi is always quick to remind fans that, although she’s achieved immense success, she’s still a “regular degular shmegular girl from the Bronx.”
  • Okuuuuuuurt: a slightly played out version of ‘okayyyy’
  • Bloody Shoes: On her track “Blodak Yellow,” Cardi uses the phrase “bloody shoes” in reference to her Christian Louboutin heels, which are known for their red soles.
  • Caught a lick: Pure luck. “When you find, like, a hundred dollars on the floor. You caught a lick.”
  • Bollection: Cardi fashion.

What do you think? What other Cardi B words should be added into the dictionary?

Looks like Cardi B is following in Rihanna’s footsteps and getting into the beauty game! According to a recent Instagram post, the Bronx-born rapper is going to be releasing a line of hair-care products for Afro-Latinas this year.

“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,” Cardi announced on Instagram on Tuesday.

A post shared by Cardi B (@iamcardib)

She explained that the decision to make hair-care products for Afro-Latinas was inspired by her realization that it’s “time for people to educate themselves on nationality, race and ethnicity.”

“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 explained further. “DNA [has] something to do with your hair, not your nationality.”

As many Latinos know, many non-Latinos are uneducated about the diversity of Latinidad. People expect all Latinos to look like Eva Longoria or Salma Hayek. But as we know, Latino is an ethnicity, not a race. Latinos come in all different shades, with vastly different features.

The comments on Cardi’s post were elated at the news that she would be releasing hair-care products for Afro-Latinas.

“Thank you!!! I’m Panamanian and they act like we don’t exist!” wrote one fan.

“Hair doesn’t have ethnicity. It has texture. It’s not black hair or white hair. It’s curly hair or straight hair. Kinky hairy or curly. 4a or 4c. People just generalize it and don’t understand,” wrote another.

On Twitter, another fan wrote: “Ok fav let’s talk about the hair care line you talking about so I can buy it and I won’t have to keep making the mask, forget everything else.”

Cardi’s decision to make hair-care products for Afro-Latinas came from (what else?) a Twitter argument.

When a Twitter user decided to challenge Cardi’s Blackness (again). The argument started when a Twitter user was claiming that Cardi’s hair pattern disqualifies her from being considered “Black.” So Cardi took it upon herself to educate her followers about the existence of Afro-Latinos. She also gave her followers a history lesson on the Dominican Republic.

The conversation got so frustrating that Cardi tweeted: “I think I’m going to do a video of different Hispanic people or Latin people or w.e. the correct term is nowadays. Cause people be thinking that every Hispanic is Mexican or something and must have the same hair texture, color, and features.”

Cardi B has always been passionate about hair-care. Last year, she shared a DIY hair mask recipe that she uses on her and Kulture’s rizos.

The hair mask consisted of argan oil, castor oil, olive oil, and mayonnaise. Since then, the at-home hair mask has gained a small but vocal fan club online.

If her hair mask recipe is a preview for things to come, we can’t wait to buy Cardi B’s hair-care products for Afro-Latinas.

Cardi B and Candace Owens Reignite Their Feud on Twitter After Owens Calls Cardi a ‘Cancer’ on Black Culture

Cardi B and Candace Owens Reignite Their Feud on Twitter After Owens Calls Cardi a ‘Cancer’ on Black Culture

Cardi B and Candace Owens have a long and storied history together. The two outspoken women haven’t exactly been the best of friends over the years. The conservative media personality has often gone after Cardi’s hypersexual music and persona.

Cardi B and Candace Owens’ rivalry started last year when Candace Owens called Cardi an “illiterate rapper“. Since then, there has been no love lost between the two women.

On the heels of Cardi B’s raunchy Grammys performance, Candace Owens took to Fox News to complain about the effect that Cardi’s music is having on America’s culture.

“Virtually what we were looking at last night was a lesbian sex scene being simulated on television,” Owens told host Tucker Carlson. “And this is considered feminist.”

Owens went on to describe Cardi B’s performance as a “destruction of American values and American principles.”

And she didn’t end there. She continued: “You’re actually actively trying to make children aspire to things that are grotesque,” she said. “We are celebrating perversity in America.”

Owens hammered it home by saying that parents should be “terrified” that I his is the direction that our society is heading towards.”

Well, if Candace Owens thought that the criticism would hurt Cardi’s feelings, she was dead wrong. The next day, Cardi took to Twitter to celebrate the fact that she “made Fox news”.

As part of her thank you speech, Cardi B thanked Candace Owens (whom she calls “Candy”) for “put[ting] my performance on Fox News, giving it more views that boosted the views on YouTube and is counting towards my streams and sales.”

Owens quickly hit back, Tweeting: “I don’t work for Fox News, Belcalis, nor do I take issue with you having success. I take issue with you being used to encourage young women to strip themselves of dignity. Men typically treat women how they treat themselves. You know that.”

Presumably, Owens was referring to the fact that Offset has cheated on Cardi in the past.

And just like Cardi, she wouldn’t take Candace Owens’ clapback lying down. Instead, she brought Melania Trump into the ring.

“No! Candy, men treat women on how a woman allows a man to treat them,” she wrote. “I mean look at Melania, she was a porn star. However, she didn’t allow Trump to treat her as [such] or shame her for her past. And [he] made her into a First Lady & the mother of his child,” she wrote.

And to top it off, she accompanied this tweet with a nude photo of Melania Trump from her modeling days (one that we will not post here). She followed that post up with a Tweet saying that “W.A.P.” was “inspired by our former First Lady”.

In response, Owens accused Cardi of being “obsessed” with the Trump family while saying that Melania Trump has “evolved” while Cardi has not.

Then the escalated and became heated and incredibly personal. Owens called Cardi a “cancer” on Black culture, and added that there’s “no person in America who can look you in the face and honestly say they wish they’re daughters turned out like you.”

In response, Cardi posted a video of Candace Owens bragging about making a sandwich for her husband. “I’m making my husband a sandwich, of course. Because that’s what a woman should do. Be making her husband a sandwich when she’d nine months pregnant and barefoot.”

At this point, the gloves were obviously off. Cardi B asked Candace: “And black women should be more like you?”

It was around this time that onlookers saw that Cardi B and Candace were actually truly heated.

“If you think making your husband a sandwich is a sin, but popping your vagina into another woman’s vagina in front of the world is power— you are a lost soul,” wrote Candace Owens.

Cardi B hit back: “It’s not a sin, but claiming ‘That’s what a woman supposed to do’ set us women, Black or white, to hundreds of years back. You have your own show and voice because women fought for years for us to be free to do what we please. NOT to be in a kitchen being submissive to a man.”

As of now, the feud doesn’t seem like it will be ending anytime soon. Head over to the rapper’s Twitter page to see the full feud between Cardi B and Candace Owens.
