How Bazaar : The Cost of Being Cardi

“If you beef with me, we beef forever” will be Cardi’s career ending epitaph.

Cardi has always presented herself as raw and unapologetic. Her decisions in love and finance are questionable at best yet, she maintains a position among the A-List. That won’t last after tonight’s events.

Girl Fight

At the Harper’s Bazaar NYFW party, Cardi attacked Nicki Minaj, initiating an altercation by throwing her shoe. The rapstress, intending to assault Nicki, only found herself in a brawl with security and allegedly faced Rah Ali. Cardi was heard shouting “Like some sh*t about my daughter again!” repeatedly as she was escorted from the engagement, parting a sea of white faces who looked on in awe and disgust. Cardi exited barefoot and restrained by two guards. Her head foolishly held high, she smirked proudly as paparazzi and onlookers caught sight of the knot on her brow. The cost of being Cardi may be too high for her Kulture.

Whew, Chile! The Unprofessionalism!

We all know how PoC are forced to maneuver in this world. The nuances of oppression and influence one’s proximity to whiteness can command are lessons lost on no one. Individually, we all play the game of navigating office politics, occasionally suffering setbacks. What is painfully clear is that no matter how high she climbs up the social ladder, Cardi will never learn to separate business from personal vendettas. Because of that, her social credit score is about to plummet.

PERIOD.

Fashion Week is the statement event for designers, affording artists an opportunity to spotlight themselves, forge partnerships, and expand their reach. Cardi had such an opportunity to establish contracts with notable fashion houses and break barriers for Latina women. Instead, Cardi was about that action instead of about her money and she may have cost herself dearly. Here’s how:

  • The dress she wore, designed by Dolce & Gabbana, was destroyed since she can’t control herself.
  • If she was expected to walk during any of the events, the knot on her forehead has eliminated those opportunities.
  • If she had any contractual obligations that were contingent upon her appearance, she can no longer fulfill them.

For reference, everyone involved in New York Fashion Week is bound by contract (i.e., models, hair and make-up artists, designers) with no exclusion regarding status. If she can’t work, she won’t get paid, and she will pay a penalty for breaking her contracts. Cardi may be out of pocket quite a bit. Since she’s paying for Lambos in cash, instead of leasing (Lambos lose 46% of their value in 3 years), she may not have the coin to keep up.

Broke and Homeless Tour

Having pulled out of her tour with Bruno Mars, which is still listed on her site, Cardi has not established a solo tour and only has 4 performance dates remaining in 2018. Ticket prices for her older performances were just $90. Fans report that even at those rates, she was late and only performed 3 songs. With just a 2 star rating on TicketMaster, it is unlikely she would be able to sell out shows, so who is truly stopping her bag?

In addition to a history of poor performances, Cardi has been on a revenge tour, seeking out her adulterous husband’s consorts at their jobs and attacking her detractors online. In her statement, Cardi laments that she has worked too hard to allow anyone to f*ck with her success, but her actions show just that — she is.

Can Cardi Turn It Around?

A lot of people want to see Cardi win, but her biggest adversary is proving to be herself. She is notorious for searching for mentions of her name, instigating conflict where there is none. She has allowed the public to have full control of her emotions, lashing out in strip clubs, at NYFW, even telling fan pages devoted to her that they can’t speak to other celebs. Cardi’s only chance for longevity is to learn to put her feelings aside.

It Was Never About Meghan! Prince William Spread Rumors to Cover His Infidelity

Prince William Meghan Markle Catherine Middleton Prince Harry

After months of using Meghan Markle as the perfect scapegoat for tension between the royals, reports of Prince William’s infidelity have surfaced. According to multiple news outlets, the expected king has allegedly cheated with Catherine Middleton’s best friend, Rose Hanbury.

Surely his father’s son, Prince William has brought shame upon the royal family for repeating the lecherous mistake of an extramarital affair. But his indiscretions carry a twist. Instead of carrying the shame as Prince Charles did, William shifted blame onto Meghan, concocting the many negative stories that plagued media outlets himself. With this knowledge, it is now apparent why there is such distance between the sons of Princess Diana.

The marriage of Prince William and Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge has allegedly been on the rocks for quite some time. But things have recently come to a head in recent months as the couple dissolved their friendship with Rose Hanbury and her husband, David Rocksavage — aka the Marquess and Marchioness of Cholmondeley. pronounced “Chumley”.

When rumors of an affair between William and Rose began circulating, Catherine immediately confronted him as the tryst took place during her third pregnancy. To quell the oncoming storm , Prince William contacted his lawyer, urging him to suppress any information that could hit U.K outlets and threatening offensive publications with legal action. In addition, media outlets that cover the royals’ goings-on began to heavily deride Meghan Markle, fueling rumors she was difficult or causing Kate’s disappointment. While news of his affair has been spreading for several weeks, it’s validity remained questioned until April 24th. Catherine Middleton returned to London last night with only her 3 children and the royal family is refusing to comment on the matter.

Bun B

When Bernard “Bun B” Freeman said “I got 20/10 vision and my trigger finger steady,” DeMonte Jackson was not listening! The iconic Houston rapper shot the armed intruder who entered his home Tuesday night.

According to the police report, DeMonte Jackson’s attempted robbery began when he approached Bun B’s southwest Houston home and rang the doorbell. Anticipating a delivery from Amazon, Bun B’s wife, Queenie, opened the door without looking to see who was on the other side and found herself staring down the barrel of a gun. Wearing a ski mask and pointing the weapon at Queenie, Jackson forced entry into the home while shouting demands.

Hearing the disturbance, Bun B quickly armed himself and made his way downstairs. Upon seeing the intruder holding his wife hostage, Bun B tried negotiating with Jackson. Fearful for her safety, he told the intruder to take their vehicle from the garage. With Queenie out of harm’s way, Bun B led Jackson to the car, where he confronted him. Exchanging gunfire in the garage, Bun B shot the intruder in the shoulder. However, Jackson escaped. Running away from the property, he laid low before seeking care at a hospital where he would later be apprehended.

DeMonte Jackson was charged with one count of burglary and two counts of aggravated robbery. Neither Queenie or Bun B sustained physical injuries.
