Cardi B Takes To Instagram To Share A Heartfelt Message About Her Late Abuelita

Yesterday, Cardi B took to Instagram to share a short message with her fans about her late abuela who died on November 11, 2011. The “I Like It” singer shared a coincidence with her fans that she believed had a divine meaning to it.

Just last month a video surfaced of Cardi B dancing merengue at her other grandmother’s 80th birthday party in the Dominican Republic the night before headling the Austin City Limits Festival. Needless to say, the Caribbean artist seems close to her family and elders. 

Cardi B shares a message “from” late grandmother with her fans. 

“Good morning guys. My grandma passed away 11-11-11. I look down on my phone is 11:11. I know for a fact she watching me.Thank you, Lord, for them small little messages that let me know you real,” Cardi B wrote in the Instagram caption. 

Cardi B believes seeing the time 11:11 corresponds with the date of her late grandmother’s death on November 11, 2011. While little is known about the circumstances of her grandmother’s passing, fans on social media showed their support. 

“Those are power numbers aka master numbers ✨ she for sure is your guardian angel, and in that moment she was sending u a message. Listen, pay attention and stay woke. Keep on manifesting all your blessings,” actress and singer Jessenia Gallegos wrote to the “Bodak Yellow” rapper. 

Many believe that the numbers 1111 are “angel numbers” or scared in some way. Cardi’s sister Hennessy Carolina chimed in with “I miss her soo much.” 

“Angel numbers are SO real. It’s what led me to Tarot reading. After one of my best friends passed, she sent me 444 and hummingbirds all the time. Our angels and spirit guides are always with us,” Chris Crocker told Cardi on Instagram. 

“I’m so sorry for your loss may God bless you and your family. She’s definitely watching over you and is proud of the legend your becoming,” songwriter Swazy Styles wrote in the comments. 

1111 does have some ties to biblical meanings.

According to AngelNumber.org, for thousands of years, many people believed that one way God speaks to people is through numbers. 

In the Bible, Jacob travels with his 11 sons, in Luke 11:11 the Father is discovered to be more benevolent than the Old Testament describes.

“Number 1111 is considered to be a symbol of a wake-up call and spiritual awakening. If this number enters your life and if you see it everywhere, it is a sign that God is calling you. It is necessary to find your spiritual path and to follow it. You need to focus more on your spiritual growth and you need to realize that material things don’t have any importance in your life,” the website claims. 

Judging from the response that Cardi got from fans and friends, many people still believe there’s a little more to 1111 than meets the eye. True or not — it probably brings comfort to plenty of people to think seeing 1111 means their God might be calling them to a greater purpose. 

Cardi B has been open about her Catholic faith. 

“If you know me, you know that I have this deep connection to God,” Cardi B said on the Rickey Smiley Morning Show in 2017. “Is it crazy for me to say that I used to ask God to please help me? The strip club really helped me. I can say that it saved me…God put that in my way.” 

In “Does God Listen to Cardi B?” columnist Brandi Miller highlights how many women in the Bible are more like Cardi than many Christians would care to share, but just as women who take pride in their sexuality today, those examples in the Bibles aren’t so revered. 

“The Bible is full of people who have stories that look a lot like Cardi B’s. Ester is a concubine in a king’s court and after winning a sexualized royal beauty pageant is honored for saving the Jews from genocide,” Miller wrote. “Paul and his gang of “thugs” initially murdered Christians, and we now call Paul a father of the faith. David is an arrogant man with a multitude of sins, and we have no problem touting him as a ‘man after God’s own heart.'”

Regardless of whatever 1111 or Christianity means to you, for Cardi B her success and her family seem inseparable from her spirituality no matter how she chooses to observe it.

“If I was to see Jesus Christ… I would kiss his feet. I wish I could give God a hug, bro,” she said on Instagram in 2018.

You may have heard of Olivia Rodrigo, the 17-year-old Disney Channel actress who has recently take the music industry by storm with the success of her debut single, “Driver’s License”.

Well you wouldn’t be the only one who is thinking about her. Recently, Cardi B tweeted about the viral song, namely lamenting over the fact that she does not have her driver’s license.

On Tuesday, Cardi tweeted out her frustration about the fact that she has to rely on other people to fulfill her late-night McDonald’s cravings.

“Just like that girl [who] wrote a song about getting her driver’s license, Imma write a song about the struggle of not having a drivers license,” she wrote. “I really wanted my McDonald’s at 4am last night instead of today, but I couldn’t so I felt asleep hungry.” More relatable words have never been spoken, tbh.

Shocked that the Bronx-born rapper even knows who she is, Rodrigo tweeted a response back at Cardi.

“Girl i will pick u up and take u wherever u wanna go,” Rodrigo wrote back.

Cardi, for her part, seemed excited to find a driver to take her on late-night McDonald’s runs. She wrote back: “Yaaayyy!!! Let’s go to McDonald’s and get happy meals!”

Cue the influx of Twitter stans demanding a future Olivia Rodrigo x Cardi B collab.

Olivia Rodrigo is just as surprised about “Driver’s License” success as everyone else is.

Rodrigo recently told Billboard that this past week, when “Driver’s License” shot to No. 1 on the Hot 100 chart has been “the weirdest week of my whole life.”

Rodrigo was a relatively unknown Disney Channel star on Disney+’s “High School Musical: The Musical: The Series” before this song hit the airwaves. Now she’s a pop sensation.

“So many people that I look up to have reached out and expressed their love for the song, which is absolutely surreal,” she told Billboard. But I truly am just the same 17-year-old girl, doing statistics homework in my bedroom.”

While many people are wondering what Rodrigo’s background is, she is proudly half-Filipino.

While some people have mistakenly called Olivia Rodriguez Latina, she is actually of Filipino descent, just like previous “High School Musical” star, Vanessa Hudgens. Just like Latin American countries, the Philippines were colonized by Spain–that is why so many people of Filipino descent have Spanish-sounding last names.

Rodrigo has talked at length about her cultural and familial roots. “My great-grandfather immigrated here from the Philippines when he was just a teenager. He’s my grandma’s dad, and my grandpa is also Filipino as well,” Rodrigo revealed in an interview with the Center for Asian American Media back in 2018.

“My dad grew up in a house where they were always making Filipino food, his grandpa always spoke Tagalog. All of those traditions have trickled down to our generation.”

For one of her upcoming projects, fans of Cardi B can expect a throwback to her older days. That’s right, Cardi B is stepping into a familiar role before the screen. The former “Love & Hip Hop: New York” star has proven herself capable of making music bangers and in Hustlers she showed that she can hold her own when it comes to the big screen.

Now, the rapper is playing the lead in Paramount’s upcoming film Assisted Living.

Cardi was recently cast in the “raucous comedy” called Assisted Living.

According to Variety, the upcoming film “is being described as a ‘raucous comedy’ with ‘tremendous heart.’ Fans of Cardi can expect a film that looks quite a bit like Tootsie, Sister Act, and Mrs. Doubtfire.

The upcoming film follows Cardi B as Amber a small-time crook who gets herself into trouble when a heist goes wrong. “On the run from the cops and her former crew, she struggles to find anywhere to hide, reports Variety. “Running out of options, Amber disguises herself as an elderly woman and hides out in the one place no one will look — her estranged grandmother’s nursing home.”

Of course, this isn’t the first time Cardi B has been in a major film.

In 2019 she appeared the blockbuster film Hustlers starring Jennifer Lopez, Lizzo, and Keke Palmer.

And of course, for some time fans were hopeful that Cardi would take on the titular role of a reboot of the ’90s sitcom “The Nanny.”

According to CNN, the reality star-turned-rapper has been in talks to play Fran Drescher’s daughter in a potential reboot of the ‘90s sitcom.

Speaking about a potential reboot in 2018, Fran Drescher told Extra in an interview “[I’m] talking to her representation. It’s really getting me excited. It’s fresh and it could be super fun.” Here’s hoping we get more Cardi B on screen!
