It’s that time of year again. The time of year when we’re inundated with seemingly endless celebrity cameos on Super Bowl commercials. And, hey–we can’t say we hate it!

And as we all know, superstar rapper Cardi B is all about getting the bag. And if depositing more money in her bank account is as simple as appearing in a commercial or two each year, you know your girl will do it.

This Super Bowl, Cardi B will be appearing in an Uber Eats commercial co-starring Wayne and Garth of “Wayne’s World” fame.

The commercial is a send-up of the famous SNL-sketch-turned-hit movie. Comedians Mike Myers and Dana Carvey reprise their famous grunge-rock fan characters, Wayne and Garth, who host a public access TV show in their basement.

The commercial starts with Wayne and Garth asking viewers to promote local restaurants that are struggling in the pandemic. Then, they say they’re not going to try to play on their viewers’ baser instincts by manipulating them with “shameless” tactics like cute babies or celebrity cameos. And of course, they’re saying all this while they hold up cute babies and bring out Cardi B for a celebrity cameo.

They then say they’d never “jump on the latest trend” to manipulate viewers into eating local–while they do TikTok’s jump and snap clothes-change trend.

“Local eats! Wayne’s World! Yummy time! Excellent!” Cardi finishes the theme song off with her signature “Okurrr” sound.

Sure, the commercial may be over-the-top, but one thing’s for sure: local restaurants are struggling in the pandemic. Before the pandemic hit, approximately 10 million people were employed by restaurants in 2020, according to the New York Times. In the spring, half of those jobs disappeared. By October, 1.5 million less people were still employed at restaurants. So, eating local definitely is a cause worth fighting for.

Both Cardi B and “Wayne’s World” fans took to Twitter to express their love for the cute commercial.

A lot of them couldn’t help but comment on how the devil works hard, but Cardi B works harder.

Some fans were pointing out what parts of the commercial were most entertaining.

Say what you want about Cardi, but you have to agree that the girl is a consummate entertainer.

And of course, fans who remembered when the original movie came out couldn’t help but feel a little old at the nostalgic throw-back.

If this commercial is a preview of the other Super Bowl commercials coming on Sunday, then we’re just as excited for the commercial breaks as the game.

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?
