Cardi B Sat Down With Vogue At Her Grandma’s House To Answer ’73 Questions’ And We’re Obsessed With Her Candid Answers

Vogue’s 73 questions, is a video series featuring celebrities in their natural habitat, answering —well duh— 73 questions. The videos are fairly choreographed and surely scripted, but they do offer insight into the homes and minds of celebs. This week, Vogue went to the Bronx to interrogate Cardi B. At her grandma’s house, the rapper opened up about politics, her new album, her marriage to Offset, and how Beyoncé taught her a life lesson —the tea is boiling. 

Our favorite Bronx-native Latina rapper got real with Vogue on a 73 question-long interview and we’re living for her candid answers.

The rapper, actor and fashion slayer, brought Vogue to the Bronx for a round of 73 questions, “Welcome to the hood,” she said holding Kulture who made a cameo during nap time. While holding her baby, Cardi answered questions on motherhood, fashion, fame, music and her favorite place to be, right there at her grandmother’s house in the Bronx. ‘What makes the Bronx so special?’ Vogue asked. “That if you can survive in the Bronx, you can survive anywhere.”

The rapper explained that she loves being a mom, but that she feels committed to her fans too.

Cardi explained why she apologized for wanting to be pregnant again, “It’s because of my fans,” she explained, “They want a new album and so many other things in the world that won’t be able to get done if I’m pregnant.”

After putting hers and offset’s baby to sleep, she answered questions about politics.

When asked what she would ask President Trump if she could make him one question she said: “If you don’t love every American citizen, why become president?” She then went on to talk about how growing up in the Bronx always made her want to speak up. “Seeing the injustice, seeing how kids my age, my color or darker, were getting treated in my neighborhood. That always made me want to like, be involved.” 

Cardi has made it very clear that she supports Bernie Sanders, and she told Vogue why.

After Cardi took the time to set up an interview with Bernie Sanders at a Detroit nail salon to talk police brutality, the economy and health care a few months ago, it became pretty obvious that the rapper from the Bronx was rooting for him. “He’s a natural humanitarian,” she said about the Democratic presidential candidate. The rapper explained that what she likes about him most is that he “cares about people.” 

The conversation then steered toward her fans, the industry and music. 

If she could give her young female fans a message, what would it be? To not worry about what’s happening to them right now “especially if you’re in high school, people bullying you, picking on you. Those people are not going to matter in a few years.” 

At one point during the interview, Cardi facetimed Offset —and it got steamy.

The Bronx-native Latina facetimed Offset at one point during the interview, explaining that he was far away, in LA, working. “I love that I feel secure with him,” she revealed. “He makes me feel protected… I love him bigger than my ass, and my ass is big.” When asked about relationship advice she said: “The best relationship advice I can share is that if you love somebody no matter what, try to work it out.” —and we’re sure she’s hinting at that cheating scandal that went down between the two rappers back in 2017.

Cardi talked abut how Beyonce taught her an important lesson.

‘I Like it Like That’ rapper opened up about what made her feel the most vulnerable and explained how Beyoncé indirectly taught her a lesson about not caring about what the world says. “I feel most vulnerable when people say so many mean things about me. But Queen Bey came to the rescue and helped her cope with those feelings, “I heard she only allows herself to feel bad for one day,” Cardi says. “So I only give myself one day to feel bad for myself. Then I go back to work and not giving a fuck.”

Cardi got real about about what she’s learned from becoming a mother.

“Things don’t go as you plan, never!,” to her own fashion icons, “Lady Gaga, Missy Elliott, Jennifer Lopez, Rihanna,” and her new “spicy” album. She also opened up about her meteoric rise to celebrity: what’s kept her going; “In order for me to spoil my child for the rest of my life, I have to have money and make money for the rest of my life,” how she would like to be remembered: “as the girl-next-door who made it,” and what’s been hardest to get used to: “criticism”.

She also revealed that her new album will be “spicy” and “controversial.”

The World Series is still happening despite Covid because baseball just can’t be held down. The Dodgers are playing their first World Series game today and fans are so excited to finally get some more baseball in their lives.

The World Series is here and Los Dodgers are playing their first game.

Baseball is America’s pastime and few teams have a fanbase as energized as The Dodgers. Ask any Dodgers fans about how difficult it is to get to the stadium and their commitment to the team is clear. It is not anywhere accessible by public transportation so you really have to want it.

People are super energized to celebrate and support their team.

The Dodgers made it to the championship game against the Houston Astros in 2017. The Dodgers lost to the Astros that year but three years later the Astros had the title stripped because of a cheating scandal. Now, The Dodgers have a chance to make win a title and Dodgers fans are excited to see it happen.

Even the furry fans are getting excited about the games.

It’s a fact that if a team has furry fans then they have the best fanbase. Who doesn’t want to end up at a stadium or party with these cute fluffers walking around in their Dodgers’ gear? These four-legged fans are better than child fans because they are going to get everyone’s spirits up.

The team has a lot of big names behind them cheering them on.

Los Angeles is home to some of the top celebrities and athletes. It must be nice to know that some of the most influential people are out there pushing for you to make it all the way. Bonus points if they are other athletes who know just how exciting and hard it is to compete at the elite level.

Let’s go, Dodgers!

The Dodgers play the Tampa Bay Rays tonight at 5:11 PST. Be sure to tune in and cheer for your favorite baseball team as they try for the championship again.

Netflix Finally Gave Us The Release Date For “Selena: The Series” And Fans Can’t Wait

Netflix Finally Gave Us The Release Date For “Selena: The Series” And Fans Can’t Wait

contodonetflix / Twitter

One of the most popular and cathartic things to do in the time of Covid is to binge watch shows on streaming platforms. Why drag something out when you can watch an entire season in a day? Well, Selena fans now have one more thing to binge after Netflix announced the release date for “Selena: The Series.”

The world will forever change after Dec. 4.

Netflix is finally releasing the highly anticipated show “Selena: The Series” and we are so stoked to finally see it. The show has been on the radar of Selena fans everywhere since it was announced in 2018. We have all patiently waited for two years to finally see this show.

This is not a drill. This is not a prank. This is a gift from the entertainment deities who want to make sure that we all have something to make these hard times better. All you need is access to a Netflix account, doesn’t matter whose, and the enduring love for Selena that most of us have.

People are marking their calendars for a big day in entertainment.

That’s right. Netflix is releasing “Selena: The Series” and Disney+ is releasing “Mulan” for Disney+ subscribers at no extra charge after trying to rent it for $30 through the app. Dec. 4 is gearing up to be one of the most exciting days for people who just don’t want to leave the house during the current Covid pandemic. What a time to be a live, huh?

Netflix knows exactly what they are doing by releasing this show.

This show is approved by the Quintanilla family so there is that. This show was announced at the same time that Telemundo announced that the Spanish-language network was releasing their own series “El Secreto De Selena.”

The Telemundo show was based on the book written by journalist María Celeste Arrarás. The family has vehemently denied the accusations made in the book multiple times and Telemundo’s decision to make the series, which aired in 2018, angered viewers.

We have been promised a story about Selena that we have not seen in the past.

The Netflix series will not be rehashing what we have already seen. We know the story of Selena’s musical rise and tragic death thanks to “Selena” with J.Lo.

“Selena: The Series” is going to be showing us the life of a young Selena before the fame and musical career. It is truly amazing that after all of these years, there are still new stories to be told about Selena and her important place in American Latino history.

“Before she became the Queen of Tejano Music, Selena Quintanilla was a young girl from Texas with big dreams and an even bigger voice,” reads the description of the show. “The two-part coming-of-age drama ‘Selena: The Series’ explores the once-in-a-generation performer’s journey as a young artist, from singing small gigs in Corpus Christi with her family to becoming one of the most successful Latin artists of all time — and the years of grit and sacrifice the Quintanilla family navigated together before Selena’s meteoric rise to fame.”

So, mark your calendars and gather your loved ones.

This day should be a holiday as we all know that Selena is one of the greatest unifiers in the Latino community. We still sing her songs to this day and her legacy is being passed down to younger Latinos. Selena gave us representations before we knew we wanted and needed it.

It’s like we can already hear those old-school Selena y Los Dinos songs playing in our heads. Dec. 4 can’t get here fast enough and that’s a fact.
