An old interview of Cardi B admitting to using sex to drug and rob men has resurfaced, sparking the use of the hashtag #SurvivingCardiB.
Sunday evening, problematic videos of the “Money” rapper surfaced that put a spotlight on her past as an exotic dancer. In the most “on-brand” action for Cardi, this revelation came from her attempting to prove her worth to her detractors. Virtually screaming at her Instagram Live audience, Cardi B was attacking those who claimed she didn’t deserve what she had. Detailing some of the questionable things she did to scrape by, Cardi admitted, “I drugged n*ggas up and I robbed them.” The clip spread like wildfire, prompting the use of a hashtag, calls for the rapper to lose endorsement deals, and demands that the authorities to take action.
Cosby Cardi B has been drawing comparisons to other men in the entertainment industry that were disgraced for employing similar tactics. Although immediate comparisons likened her actions to comedian Bill Cosby, we can’t forget that Rick Ross used questionable lyrics in the song U.O.E.N.O:
Put Molly all in her champagne, she ain’t even know it
I took her home and I enjoyed that, she ain’t even know it
Those lyrics cost Rick Ross a partnership with Reebok, who he name dropped in the song.
“There are other ways to get revenge”
Adding to the backlash, another video came to light where Cardi B alleges that she would drug her significant other. Claiming she would do this as a way to get back at an unfaithful partner, Cardi said:
Imma take him out, we’re gonna get drunk. Imma get him all perc’d up and everything. We’re gonna have a good time. Get him super twisted, then bring a b*tch around. We’re gonna have a threesome. And when he wakes up he’s gonna be like ‘What the f*ck?!’ Yeah, because the b*tch was a tr*nny.
Following this, clips of Cardi B using aggressive sexual language in interviews began to spread, including a clip of her saying she would “rape” the face of a Breakfast Club host.
While Cardi B is currently social media silent, she managed to dig a deeper hole before muting herself. The rapper even went so far as to attack people in her comments that called for her “cancellation.” Never one to shy away from an opportunity to be anti-Black, Cardi took the chance to body shame a Black woman before running away from further criticism.
At this time, it isn’t clear if Cardi will face any ramifications from her admission. Keep in mind, she is set to star in a stripper-revenge flick titled ‘Hustlers’ alongside Jennifer Lopez. I wonder if she’ll be drawing from her life for inspiration in her role.
Rolling Ray Undergoes Surgery After Wig Catches On Fire
Social media star Rolling Ray underwent surgery Tuesday morning to treat serious burns on his body after his terrible wig accident last week.
In a series of IG stories, he let his audience follow along as he prepped for surgery.
Last week Rolling Ray announced he was hospitalized after his wig caught on fire! During a January 13 Instagram Live session hosted straight from his hospital bedside, he showed his severely burnt and damaged face telling viewers his “whole skin, legs, arms, feet, and everything” were burned.
In a more recent Live, Ray explained the incident that led to his whole wig catching on fire: an unfortunate smoking accident. “It just, like, lit on fire when I tried to light the cigarette,” he recounted. “So I get to trying to snatch the wig off. B***h, the fire goes to my f*****g shirt, to my feet, to my legs, to my back. It’s a fire everywhere, it’s a fire in the whole room.”
Of course the internet trolled him in a disgusting display of ableism and heartlessness. Comments like “Rolling Ray should have stopped, dropped, and rolled” and “karma’s a b***h” had social media conflicted in its feelings about his accident. His sensation comes from his harsh and, often, below-the-belt reads (just last month he told Yung Miami to “dig (sic) up” her dead baby father. However, the criticism didn’t stop him from responding on Twitter.
Rolling Ray might be problematic as all get-out, but we do not tolerate ableism here. We wish him well as he heals.
Fantasia Reveals Gender of Baby On the Way!
On Tuesday singer-songwriter and “American Idol” winner Fantasia Barrino took to social media to reveal that she is having a baby girl, her first child with husband Kendall Taylor.
In a series of Instagram stories, Fantasia showed pink fireworks being shot off during a gender reveal party, to her and her hubby’s excitement! She continued by sharing what her daughter-to-be’s name will be: Keziah London Taylor.
The news comes after the couple revealed they had struggled to conceive since their 2015 marriage. During a November episode of her IG Live show “Taylor Talks,” she described continuously praying for a child with her husband. Fantasia, a deeply devout Christian, was obviously elated when she shared the news.
“God I Want To Thank You!” she said in an Instagram caption. “You Gave Us A Seed even when the Doctor said that one of my Tubes [was] Closed you said Different. @salute1st I Love You King and I can’t wait to see who He or She acts Like.”
We can see Fantasia and family are all super excited to be welcoming a baby girl into their lives. All congratulations to her.
Kim Kardashian and Kanye West Are Getting Divorced, Report Says
In a story published Tuesday evening, Page Six is reporting that Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are getting divorced, with the two already in settlement talks. The news comes after the couple spent the holiday season separately – Kanye at his ranch outside Cody, Wyoming, Kim and the kids with her famous family in southern California.
A source close to Kardashian was quoted saying, “Kim got Kanye to go up there so they could live separate lives and quietly get things sorted out to separate and divorce. She’s done.” Kardashian, 40, and West, 43, are said to be splitting because of marital problems directly related to Kanye’s very public mental health struggles.
For several years the rapper’s various antics have caused fans to worry. After coming out as a Trump supporter, West then announced his own 2020 presidential bid under a new political party: the Birthday Party. At a campaign rally in South Carolina, he was seen rambling, debating individual audience members, and at times, crying. In various interviews, he has rambled on almost incoherently, and his tweetstorms are now infamous.
For her part, Kim has always supported her husband and has openly discussed the difficulties of their marriage. Back in June, she shared on social media, “Anyone who has [bipolar disorder] or has a loved one in their life who does, knows how incredibly complicated and painful it is to understand… People who are unaware or far removed from this experience can be judgmental and not understand that the individual (has) to engage in the process of getting help no matter how hard family and friends try.”
It appears she has finally reached her limit in the union with the unnamed source saying, “She is serious about taking the bar exam and becoming a lawyer, she is serious about her prison reform campaign. Meanwhile Kanye is talking about running for president and saying other crazy s**t, and she’s just had enough of it.”
Separately, a source close to Kanye alleges the rapper is sick of his wife and her family, which might have some truth to it since he has tweeted some pretty nasty things about them in the past. “I been trying to get divorced since Kim met with Meek at the Warldolf [sic] for ‘prison reform,’” he said in a now-deleted July tweet. Recently, he hasn’t been featured on his wife’s Instagram and has largely remained out of the public eye.
With the news yet to be confirmed, the “divorce is imminent” reports are just rumors for now. We’ll be following the news as more information comes out.
