Cardi B took a trip down memory lane in her recent appearance on “The Ellen Show” as she spoke to Ellen DeGeneres about her high school days. When asked about what type of student she was in school, Cardi B recalls being very disruptive. It wasn’t that she was a bad kid, she just couldn’t resist cracking jokes during class, she clarified. Although being the class clown might have sent the rapper to the principal’s office more than often, it was her bold personality that made her so likable and memorable.
“I made the teachers cry when I left [school]…But the smartest person, the teacher wasn’t crying for them,” Cardi B said.
It was this same vibrant personality that led her to her Instagram fame. Even before her VH1 appearance in “Love and Hip Hop,” she had already gained thousands of followers on Instagram because of the funny videos she would post onto her account.
“My personality took me places. Who would’ve known,” she said to DeGeneres. This same personality shined bright in her recent performance at Coachella, where Cardi B twerked on the stage from left to right – pregnant belly and all.
Even now that Cardi B has become a huge rapper with her debut album reaching certified gold, her personality remains exactly the same. And this is what fans love about her.

I think it’s a given that no talk show will ever be boring if Cardi B is the guest being featured.
As President Trump continues to lead a national racist attack on progressive Rep. Ilhan Omar, Cardi B showed her support for the Minnesota congresswoman with a simple Instagram post.
Within hours, #IStandWithIlhan was trending on Twitter, with public figures and fellow politicians weighing in.
Cardi B was one of the very first people to show her support for Omar.
In typical badass fashion, the “Press” singer quoted Beyonce when posting in support of Omar on Instagram, sharing a photo and writing, “You know you that b**** when you cause all this conversation.”
This is not the first time this week Cardi B, born Belcalis Almánzar, has weighed in on politics. The Bronx-born rapper tweeted Tuesday that she was “really sad” that Democratic voters “let down” Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) during the 2016 presidential primary.
She wrote that the senator has “been fighting for equal rights, HUMAN rights for such along time.”
“Seeing this country become a better place been really his passion for a long time not a new front for a campaign,” she added.
Cardi B’s appreciation post comes after a disgusting rally where Trump continued with his racist rhetoric.
Trump held a “Make America Great Again” rally in Greeneville, North Carolina. During the rally, Trump continued to rant against Omar, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ayanna Pressly and Rashia Tlaib, who have become known as “the squad.”
“Let ’em leave… they’re always telling us how to run it, how to do this, how to do that. You know what? If they don’t love it, tell ’em to leave it,” Trump said of the congresswomen.
Although Trump spent time going after each woman individually, only his attack on Omar elicited an offensive chant from the crowd.
“Omar smeared U.S. service members in ‘Black Hawk Down.’ She slandered the brave Americans trying to keep peace in Somalia,” Trump said of Omar.
Trump paused his speech to let the chant continue.
The president also claimed Omar blamed America for the economic crisis in Venezuela and she refused to condemn Al Qaeda. As the president ripped into Omar, people in the crowd began chanting “send her back” in the same way that they chanted “lock her up” during his campaign against Hillary Clinton.
After, Omar responded to the chants at the rally by tweeting, “I am where I belong, at the people’s house and you’re just gonna have to deal!” along with a photo of her on the House floor.
Cardi B fans have been stanning extra hard after her post.
To see this strong woman of color come to defend one of Trump’s most vocal opponents sent me any people into a frenzy. Her tweet was simple yet totally summed up what so many of us are thinking and feeling.
I mean she quoted the Queen Bey in her post. Like OMG.
That is some mad stanning right there. Quoting Beyonce lyrics to support a woman of color suffering racist attacks from the President of the United States and his supporters…it doesn’t get more powerful than that.
Cardi B’s favored presidential candidate always weighed in on Trump’s remarks about Omar.
Cardi B has been pretty vocal about her support of Bernie Sanders for president. She recently said about Bernie, “Seeing this country become a better place been really his passion for a long time not a new front for a campaign.”
She has never shied away from getting the biggest, baddest, sharpest and most decorated nails around. But now Cardi B has been taken to the next level in the nail game with nails that come to life with just a thought and can act as new limbs.
In the latest campaign for her brand partnership with Reebok, released Tuesday, the rapper takes viewers to the beauty salon.
Cardi B highlights her famous nails in latest ad with Reebok and it totally works.
A sneaker deal is a rapper’s rite of passage. And Cardi B has famously partnered with Fashion Nova and Steve Madden in the past, but last November she announced she would partner with Reebok, the classic sneaker and athletic-clothing brand.
On Tuesday, the company released a new advertisement, and at its center is the “Press” rapper. It’s absurdist, attention-grabbing, and completely Cardi B.
The video is next level Cardi B realness.
While chatting with a friend under hair dryers everyone in the shop is alerted to Cardi’s one untied sneaker. Without missing a beat, she wills her already long, pink, jewel encrusted nails to do the task for her.
The video sees her nails grow a few feet and work independently to tie up her shoe before retreating back to a more normal length.
With a freshly tied pair of Reebok’s Classic Club C, she turns to a customer and simply says ‘nailed it.’ Living!
These are the hot tenís she’s rocking in her new commerical that she also played a part in designing.
Reebok spoke on the collab with Cardi, and said, “The film is a salute to Cardi’s own life experience, which saw her challenge expectations to become a self-made maven and incorporates boundary-pushing nail art that has become an iconic feature of her style.”
As for the shoes, Reebok describes vintage Club C’s as , “Take it down to pure essence with clean lines and a classic lineage. A Union Jack symbol along the side profile calls up heritage style. No excess, no riffraff. Made for icons.
And the shoes are currently on sale for $75.
People are absolutely living for her ad with the sneaker brand.
Even though it looks like, at least on Twitter, people didn’t even realize the rapper had a collab with Reebok.
But her ad seems to be working because people are already posting screenshots of them buying Cardi’s new shoes.
While some are calling the ad absurd and totally attention grabbing. But ain’t that straight up Cardi B?
