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.”

Joe Biden Calls Kamala Harris A ‘Fearless Fighter’ After Tapping Her To Be His Running Mate

Joe Biden Calls Kamala Harris A ‘Fearless Fighter’ After Tapping Her To Be His Running Mate

After weeks of speculation and anticipation, presidential candidate Joe Biden announced on Tuesday that he has officially picked his running mate.

In a history-making announcement, Biden revealed that he had tapped California Sen. Kamala Harris to be his VP Pick.

“I have the great honor to announce that I’ve picked @KamalaHarris — a fearless fighter for the little guy, and one of the country’s finest public servants — as my running mate,” Biden announced in a tweet.

Harris’s nomination makes her the first Black and first Indian-American woman on either major party’s presidential ticket.

Harris is a former prosecutor from California who challenged Biden in her own presidential bid last year. Her nomination makes her the fourth woman to appear on a major presidential ballot. Before her, Geraldine Ferraro ran as a Democratic vice presidential nominee in 1984. In 2008, Republican Sarah Palin ran as a vice presidential nominee, later in 2016, Hillary Clinton became the Democratic presidential nominee.

Biden’s choice was one that has long been in the works. In March of this year, he revealed that he would make a point to have a woman as his running mate and in July he announced that he had narrowed his picks down to four Black women.

Kamala Harris was elected to Congress in 2016.

This has been Harris’ first term as a senator. Before, she served as the California attorney general. During her time as AG, Harris formed a lasting friendship with Biden’s late son Beau who was attorney general at the time in Delaware. Writing about Beau’s death, in her memoir The Truths We Hold, Harris recalled that “there were periods when I was taking the heat when Beau and I talked every day, sometimes multiple times a day,” she wrote in her memoir. “We had each other’s backs.”

Biden’s son Beau died in 2015 from brain cancer. Harris attended his funeral.

During his announcement, Biden mentioned Harris’ friendship with his son.

“I watched as they took on the big banks, lifted up working people, and protected women and kids from abuse,” Biden tweeted. “I was proud then, and I’m proud now to have her as my partner in this campaign.”

So far, it seems there are quite a bit of Harris x Biden supporters.

Fans were quick to give their support and applaud her candidacy.

In a tweet acknowledging her nomination, Harris wrote “@JoeBiden can unify the American people because he’s spent his life fighting for us. And as president, he’ll build an America that lives up to our ideals. I’m honored to join him as our party’s nominee for Vice President, and do what it takes to make him our Commander-in-Chief.”

Here’s to 2020 y’all. Get ready to make history.

From That Picture With George W. Bush To Dakota Johnson’s Memeworthy Confrontation— A Timeline Of Ellen DeGeneres’ Downfall

Last Thursday, American comedian, television host, and Finding Dory actress Ellen DeGeneres penned a personal memo to the employees of her talk show in an effort to address recent allegations of workplace toxicity.

“My name is on the show and everything we do and I take responsibility for that,” she said while addressing recent complaints about her contributions to a toxic work environment on the show. “Alongside Warner Bros, we immediately began an internal investigation and we are taking steps, together, to correct the issues. As we’ve grown exponentially, I’ve not been able to stay on top of everything and relied on others to do their jobs as they knew I’d want them done. Clearly some didn’t. That will now change and I’m committed to ensuring this does not happen again.”

Writing about what she has learned in recent weeks, DeGeneres vowed to push herself “to learn and grow.”

“We all have to be more mindful about the way our words and actions affect others, and I’m glad the issues at our show were brought to my attention,” she went on to write. “I promise to do my part in continuing to push myself and everyone around me to learn and grow. It’s important to me and to Warner Bros. that everyone who has something to say can speak up and feels safe doing so.”

DeGeneres’s letter comes at a time when serious allegations have been made about her and the executive producers on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show.” Still, while current complaints have gone viral recently, they only seem to be part of an upset over the comedian’s behavior that has been years in the making

Check out the timeline of her downward spiral below:

December 2018 – The New York Times publishes the “Ellen DeGeneres Is Not as Nice as You Think” headline

In a New York Times profile, reporter Jason Zinoman examined the comedian’s happy television host persona against her 2018 Netflix stand-up special, titled “Relatable”. With a headline that read “Ellen DeGeneres Is Not as Nice as You Think,” Zinoman wrote, “In sharp contrast to her public image as everyone’s good friend, happy to listen, she presents herself — with tongue in cheek — as cartoonishly aloof and indifferent, stuck in a privileged bubble, cracking several jokes, for instance, about her fabulous wealth.”

January 2019 – Defense of Kevin Hart and dismissal of his disappointed fans as “haters”

Soon after comedian and actor, Kevin Hart was ousted from his position as an Academy Awards host due to a series of discovered homophobic tweets and jokes he’d made, DeGeneres, invited him to come on her show.

During her interview with him, DeGeneres urged Hart to ignore the backlash he’d received and dismissed his critics as “haters.” Soon after, she appealed to the academy to hire him for the Oscars once again much to her supporters’ chagrin.

October 2019 – DeGeneres takes a photo with George W. Bush

In the fall of 2019, DeGeneres was pictured with former president George W. Bush at a Dallas Cowboys-Green Bay Packers game. The photo sparked backlash and expressions of disappointment online. After all, during his presidency, Bush pushed for bans on same-sex marriage.
DeGeneres belittled negative comments about the photo writing, “People were upset. They thought, ‘Why is a gay Hollywood liberal sitting next to a conservative Republican president?’ “Here’s the thing: I’m friends with George Bush. In fact, I’m friends with a lot of people who don’t share the same beliefs that I have. We’re all different, and I think that we’ve forgotten that that’s okay that we’re all different.”

November 2019 – Dakota Johnson calls DeGeneres out for lying on her own show

Known as the incident that might have first brought down Ellen, Johnson’s 2019 appearance on the comedian’s daytime show undoubtedly opened the floodgates. During an interview with the Fifty Shades Of Grey actress, DeGeneres commented about not being invited to her 30th birthday party asking “How was the party? I wasn’t invited.” Johnson was quick to defend herself in an awkward but honest moment saying “Actually, no, that’s not the truth, Ellen. You were invited.”

Oof.

March 2020 – And of course, that viral Twitter post

Months after Johnson’s appearance, a Twitter thread posted by “Gilmore Guys” podcast co-host Kevin T. Porter went viral after he petitioned for negative stories about DeGeneres’s behavior in “exchange for food bank donations.”

The tweet reeled in over 16K comments and a whole lot of horrifying stories about the actress.
