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.

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 ♥️

A post shared by Cardi B (@iamcardib) on

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

Haters Tried To Shame Cardi B With Photoshopped Images Of Her At Target And Boy Did She Clap Back

Body shamers gonna hate.

It’s been a brutal start to summer for us all but Cardi B has proved that she continues to thrive. With regular pics of herself flaunting her looks on Instagram, the Dominican rapper has not shied away from sharing images of herself in an array of wigs, her natural locks, or in stringy bikinis.

And while the celebration of her looks should be admired by all, some have opted to attempt to stomp on it all.

Recently, an edited image of Cardi B at Target began circulating on social media.

Earlier this week, pictures of Cardi shopping in Target began to pop up online. The images showed the rapper shopping and wearing exercise gear and people were quick to attempt to “body shame” her for appearing to gain weight. Trolls quickly made their way over to Cardi B’s profile page and accused the artist of editing the bikini pictures that she recently posted on Instagram.

Fortunately, it didn’t take long for Cardi to catch wind of the commotion and defend herself on Instagram by posting more bikini videos.

In a series of images to her Instagram story, the “Bodak Yellow” rapper shared a video of herself in her underwear and admitted she’d “gained a little weight” while in quarantine. In one picture she replied to trolls by saying “My shorty told me that he like it like that.”

Hours later, Cardi followed up her posts with a bikini video where she hit back at trolls for editing the Target images.

Still upholding her good sense of humor, Cardi put the video on pause and let out a breath joking that she had been holding her stomach because she’d eaten breakfast, lunch, and had some ice cream. “I know y’all ain’t body-shaming me,” she said towards the end of the video. “Now, I know I gained a little weight…it doesn’t matter though, a bitch got lipo money. I got lipo money.”

Cardi has been transparent about the efforts she’s made to enhance her body via surgery in the past.

In May of last year, the rapper was at a performance at the Beale Street Music Festival, when she disclosed to fans that she had recently received liposuction surgery.

Later in an interview with Entertainment Tonight, the rapper said that she wanted to be honest and open about her decision to undergo the surgery because she wanted “to explain to people how hard it is to process. I feel like people look at girls on Instagram and go, ‘Oh, they got their lipo done and it was so easy,”‘ she said. “It is just such a long, hard process, almost like the same process as after you give birth to a baby and you see your body change.”

She also took to Instagram Live last year to talk more about her decision to undergo the procedure telling fans about the difficulties involved with juggling recovery and a busy work schedule “I can’t even feel my body, shit hurts.”

A transparent queen with a sense of humor. Gotta love it!
