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.”

‘Selena: The Series’ Finally Has Their Chris Perez And Los Dinos And Fans Are Getting So Excited

hunterreesepena / jpoes13 / Instagram

‘Selena: The Series’ is coming together and fans are getting more and more good casting news. The Netflix series that dives into Selena Quintanilla’s childhood and early career is slowly but surely rounding out its cast. The show, which will debut at some point in 2020 is getting a dramatic overture, in the sense that every single bit of news related to the show has been drawn out. But we’re not mad. We just wish the series was out already. Here’s the latest development in the show

The cast that will portray Selena’s band, Los Dinos, has been named. Jesse Posey will play Chris Perez.

Jesse Posey, not to be confused with his older brother, actor Tyler Posey, will be Selena’s love interest, Deadline reports. The Santa Clarita, California, native could previously be seen in “Stitchers,” the 2017 TV series. His brother, Tyler, is definitely the more famous of the two. You may have seen him in the series “Teen Wolf” and as J.Lo’s son in “Maid in Manhattan.” So we’re really excited to see what his younger brother will bring to the table as Chris Perez. Those are some big shoes to fill because the love between Chris and Selena was undeniable. Jesse is also a musician, which is perfect for this part. 

Julio Macias will play Pete Astudillo, the recognizable member of Los Dinos, who wrote some of Selena’s greatest hits.

Macias can be seen on the T.V. show “On My Block” as well as “S.W.A.T.”

Daniela Estrada will portray Selena’s sister, Suzette Quintanilla. From what we know of Selena’s family (from the Selena movie), Suzette wasn’t exactly thrilled to be the drummer of the band but definitely came through as her own becoming an established musician. Today, Suzette is Selena’s loudest advocate who continues to champion the legacy of her sister. 

Suzette is only one of those responsible for approving of the series. 

“Selena will always have a lasting place in music history, and we feel great responsibility to do justice to her memory. With this series, viewers will finally get the full history of Selena, our family, and the impact she has had on all of our lives,” Suzette Quintanilla said a year ago to the Hollywood reporter. “We are excited to partner with Campanario and Netflix to give fans a never-before-seen glimpse at our story and highlight why Selena will remain a legend for generations to come.”

Other cast members include Hunter Reese Peña, seen in “Morning Ritual” Carlos Alfredo, Jr., from “Mutt and Chopps,” Juan Martinez from “Triple Frontier” and Paul Rodriguez, Jr.

That last name should ring a bell. Paul Rodriguez, Jr. will play Roger Garcia another member of Los Dinos. He is also, in real life, the son of actor Paul Rodriguez and a pro-skater in his own right.

Peña, who will portray Ricky Vela, posted on his Instagram that he was beyond himself at the news that he would be in this new show. “Walked out of the shower this morning to a notification that I was on the news 😜 I’m going to be on @selenanetflix a new @Netflix series about my childhood hero Selena Quintanilla. I will be playing the role of Ricky Vela, her keyboard player, and songwriter for many of her hits. Dreams come true. P.S. This is kinda funny LOL they unknowingly cast my roommate @carlosalfredojr as a band member also 🤣🤣🤣 God has a sense of humor. Glad I didn’t give up.” So awesome! 

Just last month, the announcement of all announcements came through that Christian Serratos of “The Walking Dead” would be portraying Selena.

While the news was speculation for weeks, the announcement finally became official when Netflix finally released a Selena: The Series teaser, which showed Serratos as Selena. We were thrilled to finally see the role fulfilled, especially because we knew this pivotal role could make or break the series. After seeing the teaser, including Serratos in Selena’s signature look, we feel she will do an amazing job as the queen of Tejano music. 

Other cast members include Gabriel Chavarria, Ricardo Chavira, Noemi Gonzalez, Seidy Lopez, and Madison Taylor Baez.

Chavira, from the ABC show “Desperate Housewives” will play Abraham senior, Selena’s dad, and Chavira, will play Abraham Jr., Selena’s brother.

This Hot Cheetos Thanksgiving Turkey From Reynold Is Causing A Lot Of Tension On Social Media

reynoldskitchen.com

Hot Cheetos have been the go-to snack for teenagers and young adults since they were released in 1992. These spicy corn-based snacks are worth every hot and painful mouthful. Have you ever eaten so many of these deliciously hot snacks that you questioned if you really even need a healthy stomach? If you’re a diehard fan of Hot Cheetos, this take on the classic Thanksgiving main course will make your mouth water. Reynolds Kitchens wants you to cover your turkey in a thick coating of ground-up Flamin’ Hot Cheetos this year, and we’re not sure how we feel about it.

Reynolds Kitchen wants you to spice up your Thanksgiving turkey… literally.

“Kick up the flavor for your next Thanksgiving turkey with these popular chip flavored turkeys,” says Reynolds Kitchens at the top of their recipe, obscuring whether they mean that the chip-flavored turkeys are popular or whether they mean that the chips themselves are popular. How does somebody even come up with that? Who sits there eating their turkey dinner and thinks “You know what this really needs? A block of Cheddar and a family bag of hot Cheetos!”  But wait a sec, you have to admit it, it is an idea.

Would you try a Hot Cheetos turkey?

On Friday ABC-7 shared a recipe from Reynolds Kitchens, which is the recipe website of the Reynolds brand: “Hot Turkey in an Oven Bag” (which is a turkey covered in a thick coating of ground-up Flamin’ Hot Cheetos, or as they put it, “hot puffed cheese sticks,” and cooked in an oven bag. Of course, Twitter discussed it. “When I was growing up a turkey was baked in the Oven then u had regular cornbread dressing……now they covering the mf in hot Cheetos no fucking thank you!!!” tweeted one user.

People are begging people not to follow the recipe.

Nothing says ‘spice up the holidays’ quite like a cheese-stuffed, hot-cheetos-covered turkey. 

Few things defy Thanksgiving traditions like shoving a gigantic 2-pound block of cheese inside your turkey’s carcass and then coating all over it with crumbled Flamin’ Hot Cheetos. Because why would you make a basic turkey when you can have a Flaming Hot Cheetos coated turkey, stuffed with cheese and potatoes?

The recipe video instructs us to start with a 15-pound turkey that gets brined in salty water and brown sugar. 

After more than a few generous dashes of tabasco, it marinates. Of course, after you cover the turkey with melted butter, the crushed Cheetos — the star — coat the turkey. Oh but before the Cheetos, of course, you stuff the turkey with an industrial sized block of cheese.

Another Flamin’ Hot Cheeto turkey recipe went viral in 2017 courtesy of Reynolds Kitchen, which also offered Cool Ranch and Funyuns variety.

But this highly shareable, highly doable recipe video went viral just this past weekend, why? People do not find it appetizing. But honestly, who knows? It could taste amazing. After  all, it has the key ingredient: Hot Cheetos. What’s not to feel thankful about?

From covering elotes to becoming works of art, Hot Cheetos are a trendy, viral snack.

Flamin’ Hot Cheetos have become ubiquitous from memes to works of art. In fact, searches for the snack have become an increasingly popular search on Google over the last few years, so it was just a matter of time until this idea surfaced.

As with all things, fans and consumers of Hot Cheetos have given the snack new and unexpected life.

Sure, Many people eat them as they are quite delicious and really enjoyable on a basic level. However, so many others have taken the snack and it into a culinary treasure, and it’s getting a little out of hand if you ask us: Hot Cheetos Bagel anyone? Or how about a Hot Cheetos covered Corndog, or corn on the cob.

So what do you think, would you try it? Or would you sooner chew up broken glass? Because we’re torn.
