Cardi B. Slid Through The Dominican Day Parade Singing “Bodak Yellow” In Spanglish And It Was Lit

The annual New York City Dominican Day parade has grown exponentially since it started back in 1982 as a series of small celebrations throughout Washington Heights. It was a fairly small parade at its inception. But now as Dominicans are poised to become the largest Latino minority in New York City, hundreds of thousands make sure to come out to the parade. With their population on the rise, recent break out rap star Cardi B. knew she had to be at the parade to represent. Of Trinidadian and Dominican decent and a South Bronx Native, Cardi B. was there in full effect, wearing a Dominican flag themed outfit, bandana, flag, and a float. She was lit.

Cardi B. made sure to show up at this year’s Dominican Day Parade and sing her hit song “Bodak Yellow” along the entire route.

This Spanglish version seems to be official with Cardi B. tweeting that she’s dropping the parade version this week.

Which couldn’t come at a better time as the dancer turned rapper moved up the Apple Music charts to the number one spot across all genres.

As well as cracking into the top 10 on the Billboard Hot 100.

She really did seem to enjoy herself and her new found rap-fame.

Many of the parade goers seemed to know her lyrics by heart.

Which is no surprise. Her fans knew all the words when she performed at MoMA’s P.S. 1 performance space the previous day.

Thank you #Momaps1 and thank you everyone for making #BodakYellow #1 on APPLE MUSIC

Mariachi is officially getting the search engine clout it deserves!

Google Doodle’s latest feature celebrates the musical genre of mariachi. As an ode to the anniversary of the week that UNESCO inscribed mariachi on its Representative List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity. The genre of Regional Mexican music goes back to the 18th century.

Google’s latest Doodle features an animated video of mariachi serenading.

Singing “Cielito Lindo,” which is a song that encaptures Mexican pride, the doodle features a band of mariachi members.

Together they sing the following lyrics”De la Sierra Morena/cielito lindo, vienen bajando/Un par de ojitos negros/cielito lindo, de contrabando/ Ay, ay, ay, ay/Canta y no llores/Porque cantando se alegran/cielito lindo, los corazones.”

The lyrics translate to “From the Sierra Morena/Lovely sweet one, is prancing down/A pair of little black eyes/Lovely sweet one, is sneaking by/ Ay, ay, ay, ay/Sing, don’t cry/Because singing makes rejoice/Lovely sweet one, our hearts.”

For the doodle, the mariachi band wears traditional trajes de charro (charro suits) while strumming the traditional instruments of the genre.

Plucking away at the guitarrón, vihuela, and violin, other members use a trumpet and harp. According to Newsweek, “The tradition of mariachi originated in west-central Mexico around the turn of the 19th century, though its exact origins are murky. The musical genre began as entirely instrumental, made up of the sounds of stringed instruments, before vocals and the trumpet were eventually added.”

No doubt Google’s latest Doodle has won over the hearts of various searchers.

“What a beautiful tribute… thank you!” one user wrote.

“The Google doodle for today is a tribute to mariachis & it’s a little video that plays cielito lindo I am not okay, cielito lindo is my favorite mariachi song, it’s too cute,” another commented while another user wrote “I was so shocked when I clicked on this last night. What a wonderful surprise.”

Sweetly, the doodle really seemed to hit home for so many. “The Google Doodle today nearly made me cry,” one very happy user noted. “It was so unexpected and made me miss home for the first time since I moved.”

Kamala Harris Wore A Pussy-Bow Blouse For Her Victory Speech And Twitter Thinks It Was A Message To Melania

Kamala Harris Wore A Pussy-Bow Blouse For Her Victory Speech And Twitter Thinks It Was A Message To Melania

The pussy bow blouse is back at it again.

From the moment Vice President-elect Kamala Harris took to the stage in Wilmington, Delaware this past Saturday, the world was abuzz about her choice in wardrobe. Of course, while the Vice President-elect’s acceptance speech made its mark on history as one of hope and women’s empowerment, the conversation around her clothing choice was far from senseless. After all, Harri’s decision to wear a white pantsuit and pussy-bow blouse further buttressed her words of achievement, unity, and liberty.

As a show of women’s equality, Harris wore a white pantsuit and pussy-bow blouse for her speech at Joe Biden’s victory rally on Saturday night.

Speaking to a crowd of supporters, Harris credited women before her for her accomplishment. “I stand on their shoulders,” she said referring to thoose who fought for women’s rights and of the “new generation” that exercised their right to vote last week.

Harris’s white suit played an homage to women like Shirley Chisholm, who wore white when she became the first African American woman elected to Congress in 1968. Geraldine Ferraro, who served in the United States House of Representatives from 1979 to 1985 and wore all-white when she accepted the role of Walter Mondale’s running mate for his 1984 presidential campaign. Hillary Clinton also wore a white pantsuit to accept her Democratic presidential nomination in 2016.

Of course, Twitter users were quick to read into Harris’s choice in blouse as a dig at Melania Trump.

As you might recall from the last election soon-to-be- former First Lady Melania Trump wore a bright pink pussy-bow blouse to the second debate between then-presidential nominees Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton.

“I see your sartorial shade, Kamala, and I am HERE FOR IT,” one woman noted on Twitter.

As a reminder, back in 2016, Melania Trump wore a vivid pink pussy-bow blouse to the second debate between then-presidential nominees Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton amid outrage over leaked tapes from 2005. Just two days prior to the debate, video footage of Trump boasting about “grabbing women by the pussy.”

Viewers believed Melania’s decision to wear a ‘pussy-bow’ blouse was a wily slight jab at her husband.

“Anyone think Kamala’s pussy bow blouse may be trolling trump?” one Twitter user asked. “

“not sure yet re @KamalaHarris but I will say: the combination of the white suit with the pussy bow blouse was a very cool play …” Another commented.

“Kamala Harris’s white pantsuit and pussy bow doing a LOT of symbolic work out here! Dress matters; clothing says things verbally left unspoken,” another Twitter user posted.
