Cardi B has always repped her Latinx heritage loudly and proudly, including supporting and collaborating with fellow Latinx artists like Bad Bunny and Bruno Mars. On Friday, she took the Latinx love even further by taking to social media to pay tribute to the Queen of Tejano music herself: Selena Quintanilla.

As we previously reported, Cardi B was chosen to perform at the famous Houston Livestock and Rodeo Show–otherwise known as the biggest rodeo in the world. In line with her heretofore history-making career, Cardi B broke further boundaries by smashing the rodeo’s previous attendance record and playing to a massive audience of 75,580 people.

Before hitting the stage, Cardi took to social media to share with fans how nervous she was to perform in front of such a large audience.

Wearing a very fitting sparkly pink cowgirl outfit, Cardi stood in front of a picture of Selena, also dressed in a western-style outfit, and addressed her 41 millions followers.

“I was so nervous to perform in front of 70,000-plus people, but when I saw this picture,” Cardi said, pointing to the photo of Selena wearing her signature bustier and an off-the-shoulder leather jacket, “…I knew I was gonna be alright.”

According to Cardi, the outfit Selena was wearing in the photo was the style inspiration for her recent “Please Me” music video.

In her “Please Me” music video, Cardi B wears a very similar purple bedazzled Western-style leather jacket and matching bustier along with corn-rowed hair stacked with gold beads, effectively repping both sides of her Afro-Latina heritage.

Cardi continued to stan for Selena by singing along with a recording of “Como La Flor” that was playing in the background, including turning and serenading the picture of Selena on the wall.

Naturally, the collision of so much Latina magic in one post had Latina Twitter on Fire.

It’s always heartwarming to see Latina artists support each other, so the fact that Cardi B took time to acknowledge Selena’s influence on her own career is not lost on the Latinx community.

This Latina was happy to see Selena’s legacy live on today.

It’s almost as if Selena’s presence was there with Cardi for her performance

Some fantasized over what could have been if Selena was still alive to team up with Cardi

We can just imagine the chart-topping ear-worms two talented Latinas like this could come up with.

And of course, some Latinas got emotional at the memory of Selena, who’s life and career was so tragically cut short

Latinas will always have a soft spot in their heart for Selena. It doesn’t take much to get teary-eyed when thinking about her.

After hearing Cardi’s short rendition of “Como La Flor”, some fans were asking for a cover

Who wouldn’t love our current Latina queen flexing her vocal muscles and giving us a rendition of one of Selena’s numerous legendary songs?

We hope Cardi continues to slay her goals and uplift the Latinx community as her career continues to soar.

Cardi B May Be In Denial About Not Going To Jail After She Faces Felony Charges From A NYC Grand Jury

Cardi B is apparently facing some pretty serious legal issues after news broke that the “Money” rapper is facing felony indictments from a grand jury.

The charges seem to stem from a bar brawl back in August.

She is allegedly facing 14 charges in connection with the incident.

Cardi B has been indicted by a grand jury on multiple charges — including two felonies — in connection with a brawl at a New York strip club.

TMZ was first to break the story.

The incident, which went down in August, was allegedly triggered after Cardi accused Jade of sleeping with Offset. Cardi was arrested in October for allegedly ordering the attack on two strip club bartenders — Jade and Baddie G. The two women claim they were injured during the brawl when Cardi’s people began throwing bottles and chairs.

Cardi B had already faced charges in relation to the attack.

She was initially charged with two misdemeanors for assault and reckless endangerment, but that’s all superseded by the grand jury indictment.  

Previously, Cardi rejected a plea deal in connection with the incident, which revolves around two women who claim to have sustained injuries during a fight they allege began because of a request from Cardi.

Reactions on Twitter were everywhere…

But most could agree that this whole event took a turn real fast.

It seems that Cardi B wasn’t getting much support from fans on Twitter.

Many comments range from “it’s about damn time” and “lock her up” to loads of memes and GIFs of people laughing at the rapper’s deteriorating legal situation.

While others were already looking to the future.

I mean it’s a bit premature to be sure that Cardi B may be facing jail time, let alone prison time.

Even non-fans were surprised by the level of hate she was getting.

The only way I could see people being happy is if she actually did it and is now going to face the consequences for her actions.

While many wondered why people were putting so much energy into the news.

To many, it was her reaction to the initial charges and the way she denied any involvement. Many thought she reacted as if she could get away with whatever she wanted – that she shouldn’t have to face the consequences.

To some, there are way more pressing matters to be shocked and disgusted at.

Cardi B loves to keep it real. It’s why people either love her or hate her. She has zero filters. Even when it comes to talking about sensitive issues like plastic surgery.

She has been very vocal about her relationship with plastic surgery and her struggle with recovery.

And now, the “Bodak Yellow” singer says she’s never getting plastic surgery again.

She took to Twitter to share the big revelation.

The news comes two weeks after she was reportedly forced to cancel a scheduled performance at a Memorial Day festival due to serious fallout from her recent cosmetic surgeries.

The rapper’s post-baby plastic surgeries have been a topic of discussion for over a month now, ever since the new mum told Entertainment Tonight that she’d had her breast implants redone. Cardi went into even more detail about her liposuction surgery, telling the crowd at the Beale Street Music Festival in Tennessee that she wasn’t even supposed to be performing post-op.

“I should have canceled today,” she said while onstage at the festival. “I shouldn’t really be performing because moving too much is gonna f*** up my lipo. But bitch, I’m still gonna get my motherf****** money back. Let’s go!”

Weeks later she was forced to cancel her headline performance at the 92Q Spring Bling Festival in Baltimore, Maryland over Memorial Day Weekend among other shows.

Most recently, she showed her Instagram followers a photo of her extremely swollen feet.

Sharing that the swelling also affects her stomach and that medical professionals were advising her to take it slow. “Look how swollen my feet get every time I take a plane, imagine my body,” she wrote. “Reasons why doctors told me to chill on shows.”

Some Tweeted at the singer saying any extra cash she has from skipping on plastic surgery, could easily be redirected to fans.

I mean that’s one way to try and earn the money for some plastic surgery…

But most on Twitter were right up there in the rappers corner.

With nothing but support for the big decision she’s made.

Many were proud of the “Money” rapper for taking control of her health and body.
