Young Cardi B Is Dropping Some Truth In Some Of The Funniest Memes On The Internet

Cardi B has been dropping albums and collabs left and right, working straight through her pregnancy. In the mere ten days since Baby Kulture Kiari Cephas was born, the Internet has taken to turning a 5-year-old “Young Cardi” photo into all the memes.

We are definitely hoping that Baby Kulture has all the same sass that her mama was born with.

Cardi B started it by offering up the pic and asking the Internet to make a meme.

IDK WHY THIS ONE IS SO FUNNY. 😂 🤣

I’m praying for Kulture to be as confident in her right to know everything as we imagine young Cardi to be.

Baby Cardi B was so ahead of her time, you guys. Screw Superman Pose*, I’m going for a Young Cardi Pose before any interaction with a human.

*Studies show that if you put your hands on your hips and boast your chest out and look up (Super Man), you’re more likely to perform higher on tests, before speeches, etc. It’s a confidence pose, and Cardi has it on lock.

Then there are the meme mashups…

A viral video of a little girl throwing her dad a comeback, “Want to see my stupid face?” has become an internet meme in it’s own right. But Young Cardi will always have the last laugh: “Psh, you already have.”

Of course Neymar made it.

Literally, people are using this image just as a response to people. No caption needed. This breaks all meme rules, but we’re not crying about it. 😉

The most relatable meme ever, however, is here.

You know how you used to invite your non-Latino friends over after school when you knew you might be in trouble because your mom wouldn’t beat you in front of them. Cousins are family, so they don’t count, which means that if the playing were to go on, “that ain’t even hurt.” 😅😂

“My mom says if you don’t bring me, you’re not going.”

This is how our mother’s trained us to be just like them. The most believeable meme of them all: yes, your mama said that, and yes, Cardi B., we know you did, too.

She has some s a v a g e burns.

We love/hate kids for their brutal honesty. Thanks, Young Cardi, thanks a lot.

I’m cringing.

Look into her eyes and tell me you can’t see her saying just that. 👀

And don’t even play like you didn’t say the same thing to 8 of your friends growing up.

Corn Chip Cardi is everything.

Do you ever wonder if our moms just used us to speak their confrontational thoughts so that they can keep being polite? Yeah, it doesn’t ring true to me either. Nobody gave a f*ck.

Some of the memes are trying to bring people closer to the Lord.

@melinacnza / TwitterYou guyyysss…. Saturday night sleepovers were only allowed with your Catholic friends, because the Lord knows everything, and sees everything.

Body Shamer Young Cardi

I can see why adult Cardi started to have a problem with these memes. Although it’s very likely that at some point in the 90’s, a young Cardi might have said that.

PoPo Young Cardi.

She’s very attached to her chancletas and wants me to make sure that you don’t take a single one.

“My mamá says why can’t she and my aunts see what you post publicly on Facebook?”

Ummm… it must be a Facebook error or something. 🤷🏾‍♀️ Of course, I want your family to know todo que me hace. 🙄

This Is What Cardi B Thinks Of Instagram Taking Away ‘Likes’ And Here’s Why She’s Right

Iamcardib / Instagram

Earlier this year, Instagram began trialling the removal of likes in Canada. In a bid to reduce stress and anxiety surrounding the user experience with the platform, Instagram has announced that the social media will be test hiding likes in the US, too —And Cardi B had some thoughts. 

Instagram announced that the platform will be hiding ‘likes’ in the US this week.

Instagram’s CEO Adam Mosseri, announced last Friday that the platform will be hiding the number of ‘likes’ on posts this week. The new feature is being met with strong backlash, especially many influencers and celebrities —among them, the opinionated rapper, Cardi B.

Cardi B took to Instagram to protest the feature, arguing that removing likes wouldn’t make Instagram any less toxic because “the comments affect more than the likes.”

The rapper posted a video on Instagram, explaining how she believes that the comments section is more toxic to users than seeing likes or not. She said: “If anything is affecting Instagram right now, I really feel it’s the way the comments have been done or have been changing these past few years.” 

Cardi voiced her concerns of the comments section, pointing out how many trolls will post triggering comments just to get reactions.“That’s when I feel like when people started sayin’ nasty things … somebody would just say something so vile because … they want comments back,” she explained.“Because I feel people been saying the most weirdest shit, been starting the craziest arguments, been starting to race bait, all because of comments, because they want to get to the top, they want to get the most reactions.”

The feature was already been tested in other countries, and now that it’s coming to the US, celebrities are sharing their take.

The feature has already been tried out in seven countries including Australia, Ireland, and Canada in recent months. When it was rolled out there, influencers complained that hiding likes would give them less leverage over brand deals and sponsored content now, celebrities are calling out the app for experimenting with removing likes, with some threatening to stop posting to Instagram.

Nicki Minaj says she won’t be posting on IG anymore.

Another rapper known for not holding back on sharing her opinions, threatened to stop posting on Instagram if the feature were to take effect. What indeed would we do with all the time we’d have without Instagram?

Nicki has a sort of conspiracy theory to explain what’s behind Instagram’s new move.

Minaj went on to tweet about her speculation that Instagram is hiding likes to manipulate what posts users get to see in their feed, regardless of how much engagement posts are getting. Nicki’s speculations might have some grounds. She referred to the well-documented phenomenon of YouTube view counts fluctuating after videos are posted, which can happen when YouTube determines views come from bots or other fraudulent sources.

Juicy J also had something to say about the new IG feature.

The rapper predicts backlash against the change, tweeting that he expected people to leave Instagram and go “back to real life.”

Others however, think that the decision to hide likes is a good thing.

Despite having more than 151 million Instagram followers and the platform being crucial to making some of her $350 million personal net worth, Kim Kardashian West seems to agree with Instagram’s decision to hide ‘likes’. “As far as mental health, I mean it’s something that taking the likes away and taking that aspect away from it would be really beneficial for people,” Kardashian West said during The New York Times’ DealBook conference last week.

Tracee Ellis Ross also voiced her support for the change.

Everyone’s favorite person on IG right now, Tracee Ellis Ross, is also in support of removing likes. She said that the like count had “adverse effects.” “It creates a culture that isn’t helpful for well-being and isn’t fruitful for creative energy,” during a panel discussion with Instagram’s CEO Adam Mosseri.

The popularity-contest-style pressure associated with Instagram likes will probably just shift to another one of the many metrics measured on the platform —or who knows, maybe the move will actually make everyone happy? Either way, the social media platform will be rolling out the new feature on a small group of users this week, whether we like it or not. And we’ll be keeping our eyes open to see what the change brings.

Cardi B Takes To Instagram To Share A Heartfelt Message About Her Late Abuelita

Cardi B Takes To Instagram To Share A Heartfelt Message About Her Late Abuelita

Yesterday, Cardi B took to Instagram to share a short message with her fans about her late abuela who died on November 11, 2011. The “I Like It” singer shared a coincidence with her fans that she believed had a divine meaning to it.

Just last month a video surfaced of Cardi B dancing merengue at her other grandmother’s 80th birthday party in the Dominican Republic the night before headling the Austin City Limits Festival. Needless to say, the Caribbean artist seems close to her family and elders. 

Cardi B shares a message “from” late grandmother with her fans. 

“Good morning guys. My grandma passed away 11-11-11. I look down on my phone is 11:11. I know for a fact she watching me.Thank you, Lord, for them small little messages that let me know you real,” Cardi B wrote in the Instagram caption. 

Cardi B believes seeing the time 11:11 corresponds with the date of her late grandmother’s death on November 11, 2011. While little is known about the circumstances of her grandmother’s passing, fans on social media showed their support. 

“Those are power numbers aka master numbers ✨ she for sure is your guardian angel, and in that moment she was sending u a message. Listen, pay attention and stay woke. Keep on manifesting all your blessings,” actress and singer Jessenia Gallegos wrote to the “Bodak Yellow” rapper. 

Many believe that the numbers 1111 are “angel numbers” or scared in some way. Cardi’s sister Hennessy Carolina chimed in with “I miss her soo much.” 

“Angel numbers are SO real. It’s what led me to Tarot reading. After one of my best friends passed, she sent me 444 and hummingbirds all the time. Our angels and spirit guides are always with us,” Chris Crocker told Cardi on Instagram. 

“I’m so sorry for your loss may God bless you and your family. She’s definitely watching over you and is proud of the legend your becoming,” songwriter Swazy Styles wrote in the comments. 

1111 does have some ties to biblical meanings.

According to AngelNumber.org, for thousands of years, many people believed that one way God speaks to people is through numbers. 

In the Bible, Jacob travels with his 11 sons, in Luke 11:11 the Father is discovered to be more benevolent than the Old Testament describes.

“Number 1111 is considered to be a symbol of a wake-up call and spiritual awakening. If this number enters your life and if you see it everywhere, it is a sign that God is calling you. It is necessary to find your spiritual path and to follow it. You need to focus more on your spiritual growth and you need to realize that material things don’t have any importance in your life,” the website claims. 

Judging from the response that Cardi got from fans and friends, many people still believe there’s a little more to 1111 than meets the eye. True or not — it probably brings comfort to plenty of people to think seeing 1111 means their God might be calling them to a greater purpose. 

Cardi B has been open about her Catholic faith. 

“If you know me, you know that I have this deep connection to God,” Cardi B said on the Rickey Smiley Morning Show in 2017. “Is it crazy for me to say that I used to ask God to please help me? The strip club really helped me. I can say that it saved me…God put that in my way.” 

In “Does God Listen to Cardi B?” columnist Brandi Miller highlights how many women in the Bible are more like Cardi than many Christians would care to share, but just as women who take pride in their sexuality today, those examples in the Bibles aren’t so revered. 

“The Bible is full of people who have stories that look a lot like Cardi B’s. Ester is a concubine in a king’s court and after winning a sexualized royal beauty pageant is honored for saving the Jews from genocide,” Miller wrote. “Paul and his gang of “thugs” initially murdered Christians, and we now call Paul a father of the faith. David is an arrogant man with a multitude of sins, and we have no problem touting him as a ‘man after God’s own heart.'”

Regardless of whatever 1111 or Christianity means to you, for Cardi B her success and her family seem inseparable from her spirituality no matter how she chooses to observe it.

“If I was to see Jesus Christ… I would kiss his feet. I wish I could give God a hug, bro,” she said on Instagram in 2018.
