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.

The Bardi gang got to work and it quickly became a “My mama said” meme.

But then she took the photo and request down.

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.

In case you had a hard time visualizing it the first time: History Buff Cardi.

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.

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. 🙄

Honestly, Cardi B. would excel in any career she chose to go down.

And a diss to Nicki Minaj.

Translation: “My mom says you can’t listen to Nicki Minaj because she curses so much.”

Everyone thinks that Cardi and Nicki have beef, but it’s all #fakenews. This is just the most ironic meme yet.

Samantha Barbash Said Jennifer Lopez Should Not Have Played Her In ‘Hustlers,’ It Would Have Been Better With Cardi B

Jennifer Lopez cannot believe the incredibly positive reviews she’s getting over her lead role in the film “Hustlers.” She was so moved that she cried on national TV. Last week while being interviewed by Hoda Kotb, Lopez expressed her emotional reaction over the surprising reviews for her role, which some critics say could get her an Acadamy Award nomination. Here’s just a snippet of what film critics are saying about the film that made a big debut this weekend. “Hustlers asks what a movie like Goodfellas looks like with women at the center of the story,” one film critic said. “If nothing else, we get to see Jennifer Lopez command the screen as easily as Ramona does the stage, offering up a seductive awards-worthy performance that makes us remember why she became a movie star in the first place,” another said

There is at least one person who isn’t raving about Lopez’s role, and that’s the one who inspired the film. 

Samantha Barbash, the woman who inspired “Hustlers,” said she would have liked to have seen Cardi B in the lead role instead of Jennifer Lopez.

The 45-year-old said in an interview with Hollywood Life that rapper Cardi B should have portrayed her instead of the veteran actress, even though this is Cardi’s first film. “I said it from day one, even to the producer. Cardi doesn’t have the acting skills that Jennifer does, but Cardi could relate more to who I was because even though she wasn’t in the same club, we were in the same industry,” she told the lifestyle website. “If Cardi took some acting lessons and shadowed me, I’m sure that she would have played a better role for my character.”

Barbash goes on to say that she is flattered that Lopez wanted to play her in a movie but stresses that the film got several things wrong about her. 

Credit: Instagram/@iam_missfoxita

For starters, Barbash wasn’t a stripper at all. The film, based on a 2015 New York magazine article, shows Lopez as a stripper who ends up drugging wealthy bankers and robs them of their money. However, Barbash said she was never a stripper. Barbash actually worked at a strip club in New York City as a hostess. Yes, the other stuff about the drugs and taking their money is correct, but seeing Lopez play her a stripper didn’t sit well with her. Barbash also said that Lopez never reached out to her in order to learn about her mannerisms, which is what actors do when they’re portraying real-life characters. Even when the real-life character is deceased, actors still study old footage to learn more about the role they are playing. You may recall the extensive research Lopez said she did to portray Selena Quintanilla. She even slept in her bed to get into deep character.  

Earlier this year, Barbash said she would release her own memoir about the ordeal (which she did) that got her 5 years probation and said she planned to sue the filmmakers.

“This is a living nightmare,” Barbash said in April in the New York Post after videos leaked of Lopez on a stripper pole. “So now I’m going to have to do a lawsuit. I’m getting a gag order.” Bruno Gioffre, also said back then, that Barbash was “considering all legal avenues with the possibility injunctive relief, including a lawsuit.” The movie was made despite her legal threats. Today, Barbash is an entrepreneur and owns her own spa business. 

We can see why she would have preferred to see Cardi B in the title role.

The Bronx rapper did admit to drugging men and robbing them, just like the characters did in the movie “Hustlers.” In 2017, Barbash was charged for conspiracy, assault, and grand larceny in exchange for five years probation

In March, Card admitted on social media that during her stint as a stripper in New York she too did what the “Hustlers” did in the movie. “I had to go strip, I had to go, ‘Oh yeah, you want to f*ck me? Yeah, yeah, yeah, let’s go to this hotel,’ and I drugged n*****s up and I robbed them. That’s what I used to do.” 

Soon after that post, Cardi said she it was wrong of her to do that and has since tried to make a better life for herself.

Cardi B Blows Up Instagram As She Shares Her Opinion On Best Lighting Options For Sex

Cardi B Blows Up Instagram As She Shares Her Opinion On Best Lighting Options For Sex

Iamcardib / Instagram

Would you even be surprised to hear that Cardi B is at it again – this time talking about the best lighting to have during sex? Probably not. In classic Cardi B style, she took to Instagram to set the record straight, and give everyone the low-down on how we should be having sex. Because we all know that in the modern age, the best way to get your message across on the important things is via the glorious Insta feed.

As any true sex aficionado, Cardi gave us all the reasons why we shouldn’tuse certain lighting.

Instagram / @iamcardib

She begins by explaining why a fully-lit room can ruin the mood. ”If I see a pimple on a n**** face, it distract me from cumming because now I wanna pop the pimple … I can’t focus at all,” she said. Clearly, Cardi B is one of those people who can watch one of those Youtube vids showing pimples getting popped in graphic detail, without getting squicked out over it. More power to her – except for when she’s in bed, obviously.

Next, Cardi brought out the next point in her argument: that there’s no way you wanna be banging when it’s pitch black.

Instagram / @iamcardib

”You know you start seeing monsters when it’s too dark and sh*t. Oh, b*tch, I’m scared I wanna get out of here,” she explained. Okay, so now somehow we’re not only getting hints and tips on getting the best out of our time in the bedroom, we’re also learning more about Cardi B. She’s afraid of the dark? Man, it’s time for her to invest in some cute lil fairy lights or something. We all know that even though that hipster aesthetic is hella adorable, it was really made for people who aren’t a fan of the dark.

And then, Cardi B schooled us on how we should be setting the mood when we’re in the bedroom.

Instagram / @iamcardib

“You know when you’re in the club, when that blue light is on and everyone looks beautiful … you look beautiful when the TV light is on,” she said. And you know what, she’s not wrong. There’s something to be said about the dim lighting that a television can provide. After all, “Netflix and chill” was invented for a reason, right? And now it’s evolved beyond just being a simple pickup line, into an actual phenomenon, thanks to Cardi B.

But, this brings up more questions: is it possible for whatever’s on TV to be too distracting?

Instagram / @iamcardib

For us hippies out here: would a lava lamp suffice? What about sound coming from the TV? Are we going to ignore the initial awkwardness of getting hot and heavy with someone, to then fiddling with the lights and turning on the television? If Cardi’s gonna argue this, then she’s gonna need to go all out and really explore the topic with us. We. Need. Answers. And if this turns into a series on Insta, we’re breaking out the popcorn.

Anyway, as you’ve probably already guessed, things are blowing up on Insta and on Twitter.

Instagram / @iamcardib

The comments were alive with people applauding Cardi for sharing a universal truth. It’s now a fact, babes.

Some of these comments though…

Others were surprised that what should be a sexy night in can turn into a full-on ghost story for our girl.

Maybe not too surprising, Cardi B had her supporters online.

Chances are Cardi isn’t the first one to have discovered the benefit of a blue light, with some fans applauding her statement and making them feel seen.

Things were a bit different on Twitter, though.

It probably doesn’t help that Cardi also took to Twitter to share her thoughts on spitting and sex – and suddenly everyone had to Tweet their thoughts on what was going on behind the scenes for Cardi B. This led some to inquire about the health of Cardi and Offset’s relationship. We can answer this now, for you: they’re doing fine, of course – Cardi’s got the whole TV lighting thing sorted, after all!

Others had a bit of a giggle – because Cardi B was doing what Cardi does best. No, not rapping – chatting about sex online!

A fan or two couldn’t help but think about what Cardi’s comments meant for Cardi and Offset’s sex life. 

At the end of the day Cardi B is out here doing God’s work, since she’s destigmatizing women having a sexual appetite, one Instagram rant at a time. Thanks, Cardi. And for those of you who are curious about the original post, we’ve got it right herefor you. Yeah, you’re welcome.
