Is Cardi B’s Skin Thick Enough To Be An A-Lister?

mm

Published

At this point, unless you’ve been living under a rock for the last few days, you know about the heated war of words and insults between Cardi B and Azealia Banks. 

The feud, which was originally ignited in 2017 when Banks referred to Bardi as, “the poor man’s Nicki Minaj” and an “illiterate, untalented rat” was reignited, set ablaze, and burnt to a crisp, over comments Banks made during an interview with ‘The Breakfast Club’.

In the interview, Banks discussed how the popularity and promotion of Cardi B were actually “setting black women back”, because of what she represents. “I didn’t know the bar had been dropped“. Implying that Cardi isn’t a good representation for women of color. She also states,  “I’m just talking about this caricature of a black woman that black women themselves would never be able to get away with. Like, if my spelling and grammar was that bad, I’d be canceled. If Nicki Minaj spelled like that, we would be ragging on her all day.”

After Bank’s interview, Cardi B responded with the following post and then deleted her Instagram page.

Cardi B has stated on more than one occasion that she doesn’t like being famous. Wendy “Wendell Bartholemew Orenthal” Williams called her out stating, “she needs to stop complaining, she hasn’t been famous long enough to complain!

I concur she is always addressing the haters, instead of relishing in all the love and support she gets. If she doesn’t want it, I know Joseline would gladly take it.

Undoubtedly, critics such as Funk Flex, Nicki Minaj, Azealia Banks, Joseline Hernandez, Kashdoll, and others are going to exist. They say “you ain’t popping if you don’t have haters”.

My lil 15 minutes lasting long as hell!”

If Cardi B intends to have longevity in the music industry (more than 15 min), especially on the level of Rihanna, Drake, Migos, Beyonce and other A-Listers, she has to develop a thicker skin. It is very easy to see that Cardi has a kind heart, made of gold and a gentle, delicate soul. Unfortunately, that makes her easy prey.

Take a page out of the great Book of Mariah Huq. Otherwise, go back to being C-List, Instagram and reality show famous. There’s nothing wrong with that, in fact, she may be happier.

Don’t Come Down Off Your Chariot Girl! 

Beyonce, Usher, Madonna, Gaga and so many others have at some point had their name, business and talent drug through the mud. However, they allow the people to talk, their PR team handles the scandals and BS and they pay it dust, while appearing unbothered.

Stop letting the people see you sweat!

If you can’t take the criticism that comes along with the position, your options are:

1. Be Miserable trying to address non-supporters.

2. Allow someone else to oversee your social media pages.

3. Ignore them!

4. Give it up!

We are all (well most of us) are rooting for you! Good Luck!

Amanda Seales is Not the One

mm

Published

on

Earlier this week, the ladies of “The Real” celebrated their 1,000th episode. Hosts Loni Love, Tamera Mowry, Adrienne Bailon, Jeannie Mai, and Amanda Seales happily celebrated the momentous occasion with laughs, tears and a bottle of champagne. 

The celebration continued as the ladies were interviewed by “Extra” correspondent Jenn Lahmers.

During the interview, things became a bit awkward when Lahmers referred to Seales as the “newbie” and began to insinuate that she and fellow co-host, Mai, had “butted heads on a couple of topics.”

Immediately, Seales cut her off saying, “Have we? Stop!” She followed that up by stating emphatically, “That’s’ not the territory we’re coming from. We’re not butting heads. And I think it’s very, very important, especially at a table of diverse women to very clearly delineate the difference between having a difference of opinion than butting heads. You’ll know when I’m butting heads because when I butt heads, there’s only going to be one head standing and as you can see, we’re still here,” as she embraced Mai.

Mai and Seales followed up the quick read with a toast as the other ladies chimed in, fully supporting everything Seales had expressed. 

Earlier today, Seales posted a snippet of the exchange via her personal Instagram page with the caption, “To Gather.

She tried it. Don’t come for me unless I send for you. I am not hostile. I’m passionate. Happy Black History Month ❤️✊🏽”

Seales made her debut as the newest co-host of “The Real” on January 6th.

Rolling Stone magazine hit us with a trifecta of talent for their second annual, Women Shaping the Future issue, out March 3. 

On the cover, sweet-faced Normani, brash in your face Megan Thee Stallion and innocent, doe-eyed SZA are each clad in leather ensembles that match the unique persona’s we’ve come to love. 

SZA burst onto the scene in 2014 with her ep debut, Z. Since then, the singer/songwriter has been featured on chart-topping songs with Kendrick Lamar, Travis Scott, and Rihanna. 

Megan Thee Stallion grabbed our attention with her summer anthem, Hot Girl Summer, and has been giving us “Hot Girl” vibes all year long with no signs of slowing down.

As for Normani, formerly a member of Fifth Harmony, she’s given us plenty to celebrate as she embarked on her solo career. Just last year, the sultry vocalist collaborated with DJ Calvin Harris and released her first single, Motivation, along with a viral music video.

As we approach Women’s History Month, we’re excited to learn more about how each of these ladies plans to shape the future. 

According to Rolling Stone, “In addition to revealing, in-depth profiles of these three artists, the issue also contains exclusive interviews with Regina King, Stacey Abrams, Natasha Lyonne, and other prominent women in entertainment, sports, politics, and culture.”
