The Tropicalia Music And Taco Festival Is Back In California And The Lineup Is Better Than Ever

tropicaliafest / Instagram

If you’re inclined to think that music festivals are too white — you’re not alone. In fact, it’s really hard to see performers of color headline big shows (because Beyoncé can’t do them all). Thankfully the Tropicália Music & Taco Festival in Long Beach, California is here to save us. The music festival will feature some of the hottest Latino musicians for two days of amazing music and food.

Morrissey and Cardi B will headline the Tropicália Music & Taco Festival at the Queen Mary Park and people are screaming.

They might be two completely different artists, but fans for the two headliners are energized and ready. After all, these two performers know how to get the crowd going.

But there are so many other Latinx musicians and groups rocking the Tropicália stage, like Chicano Batman.

The psychedelic band is returning after a successful set at the 2017 Tropicália festival. Plus, they are California boys so showing up for their community only makes sense.

Kali Uchis won’t be a stranger with her return to Tropicália.

The festival is happening November 3 and 4 at the Queen Mary Park. Let’s hope the California weather doesn’t stay too hot then.

Los Ángeles Azules is bring Long Beach their cumbias straight from Mexico.

They will definitely get the crowd dancing in the fall night along the water.

Our favorite sweet songstress Natalia Lafourcade will grace the festival’s stage.

Amigos de Monterrey, está tarde fui muy feliz. Llegue al escenario de este festival que tanto me gusta @palnorteoficial. Tengo tantas razones por las cuales agradecer este día. Simplemente no podía comenzar a cantar por la emoción que sentía adentro de mi pequeño cuerpo tan sólo de estar parada frente a todos ustedes. Primero, gracias por llegar a ese lugar donde todos juntitos cuerpo a cuerpo escuchan y se permiten vivir la intensidad y magia de la música. Gracias por abrazar a mi corazón de vuelta con cariño y complicidad. Gracias porque nos conocemos hace muchos años y cada vez este árbol crece más fuerte y con más conexiónes. Gracias a todo el equipo del festival por apoyar nuestros mundos y universos musicales. México tiene mucho talento y en estos contextos se deja notar. ¿Y qué tal el atardecer que nos acompañó? Fue perfecto y fue maravilloso. Gracias viento, gracias cielo, gracias sol, gracias vida, gracias Violeta Parra por venir a este escenario y acompañarme para cantar tu canción. Gracias a nuestras historias de vida que se entrelazan con cada letra y frase que vive entre melodías y acordes. Todos hemos vivido cosas similares. Gracias al movimiento y la energía entre ritmo, espacio y silencio. Gracias a mi banda que tanto amo y admiro. Gracias a @carolinakuniverse que me regalaron esta belleza de vestido azul con flores rojas a la mexicana, gracias @galaislove que hacen tan hermosos accesorios, mismos que también me acompañaron. Gracias a mis managers que antes de entrar al escenario me ven con ojos lagrimosos, encendidos, ilusionados y llenos de luz. Los amo familia. Gracias a todos. Gracias a la vida. Gracias a los sueños que nunca dejan de visitarnos y siempre hay un nuevo horizonte para explorar. 8 aviones en diez días. Estoy agotada pero sí que vale la pena. Los amo. ❤️🙏🏻❤️🌹 Ya estamos en la intensidad de cierre de ciclo y para mi ésto significa mucho. Cada segundo se disfruta al máximo. Nos seguiremos viendo. ❤️💙

Cardi B May Be In Denial About Not Going To Jail After She Faces Felony Charges From A NYC Grand Jury

Cardi B May Be In Denial About Not Going To Jail After She Faces Felony Charges From A NYC Grand Jury

Cardi B is apparently facing some pretty serious legal issues after news broke that the “Money” rapper is facing felony indictments from a grand jury.

The charges seem to stem from a bar brawl back in August.

She is allegedly facing 14 charges in connection with the incident.

Cardi B has been indicted by a grand jury on multiple charges — including two felonies — in connection with a brawl at a New York strip club.

TMZ was first to break the story.

The incident, which went down in August, was allegedly triggered after Cardi accused Jade of sleeping with Offset. Cardi was arrested in October for allegedly ordering the attack on two strip club bartenders — Jade and Baddie G. The two women claim they were injured during the brawl when Cardi’s people began throwing bottles and chairs.

Cardi B had already faced charges in relation to the attack.

She was initially charged with two misdemeanors for assault and reckless endangerment, but that’s all superseded by the grand jury indictment.  

Previously, Cardi rejected a plea deal in connection with the incident, which revolves around two women who claim to have sustained injuries during a fight they allege began because of a request from Cardi.

Reactions on Twitter were everywhere…

But most could agree that this whole event took a turn real fast.

It seems that Cardi B wasn’t getting much support from fans on Twitter.

Many comments range from “it’s about damn time” and “lock her up” to loads of memes and GIFs of people laughing at the rapper’s deteriorating legal situation.

While others were already looking to the future.

I mean it’s a bit premature to be sure that Cardi B may be facing jail time, let alone prison time.

Even non-fans were surprised by the level of hate she was getting.

The only way I could see people being happy is if she actually did it and is now going to face the consequences for her actions.

While many wondered why people were putting so much energy into the news.

To many, it was her reaction to the initial charges and the way she denied any involvement. Many thought she reacted as if she could get away with whatever she wanted – that she shouldn’t have to face the consequences.

To some, there are way more pressing matters to be shocked and disgusted at.

After Cosmetic Surgeries Led To Complications And Canceled Shows, Cardi B Says She’s No Longer Down To Go Under The Knife

Cardi B loves to keep it real. It’s why people either love her or hate her. She has zero filters. Even when it comes to talking about sensitive issues like plastic surgery.

She has been very vocal about her relationship with plastic surgery and her struggle with recovery.

And now, the “Bodak Yellow” singer says she’s never getting plastic surgery again.

She took to Twitter to share the big revelation.

The news comes two weeks after she was reportedly forced to cancel a scheduled performance at a Memorial Day festival due to serious fallout from her recent cosmetic surgeries.

The rapper’s post-baby plastic surgeries have been a topic of discussion for over a month now, ever since the new mum told Entertainment Tonight that she’d had her breast implants redone. Cardi went into even more detail about her liposuction surgery, telling the crowd at the Beale Street Music Festival in Tennessee that she wasn’t even supposed to be performing post-op.

“I should have canceled today,” she said while onstage at the festival. “I shouldn’t really be performing because moving too much is gonna f*** up my lipo. But bitch, I’m still gonna get my motherf****** money back. Let’s go!”

Weeks later she was forced to cancel her headline performance at the 92Q Spring Bling Festival in Baltimore, Maryland over Memorial Day Weekend among other shows.

Most recently, she showed her Instagram followers a photo of her extremely swollen feet.

Sharing that the swelling also affects her stomach and that medical professionals were advising her to take it slow. “Look how swollen my feet get every time I take a plane, imagine my body,” she wrote. “Reasons why doctors told me to chill on shows.”

Some Tweeted at the singer saying any extra cash she has from skipping on plastic surgery, could easily be redirected to fans.

I mean that’s one way to try and earn the money for some plastic surgery…

But most on Twitter were right up there in the rappers corner.

With nothing but support for the big decision she’s made.

Many were proud of the “Money” rapper for taking control of her health and body.

I mean for an avid plastic surgery fan like CArdi B…this is HUGE news!

So, bravo Miss Cardi B!

We are all stanning for you.
