On Monday (Jan. 28), Pepsi unveiled its highly anticipated Super Bowl LIII commercial, starring Cardi B, Steve Carrell and Lil Jon. The 60-second clip, titled “More Than OK,” centers around the exchange between a waiter and a customer at a diner. When ordering a Coke, the waiter asks, “Is Pepsi OK?” Carrell then appears in the booth behind her to show why Pepsi is “more than OK!”
To prove a point, he gets Lil Jon, who delivers his signature catchphrase, “O-KAYYY!”
Cardi B, shimmering in a blue and silver jacket, bursts through the doors while her hit “I Like It” plays. “Okurrr!” she says before grabbing a diamond-studded Pepsi can and walking through the diner!
In the mag, she revealed what transpired leading up to the moment she attempted to fight Nicki Minaj at the Harper’s Bazaar ‘Icons’ party earlier his year.
“For a while now she’s been taking a lot of shots at me,” she said of Minaj, jiggling her leg. “I spoke to her twice before, and we came to an understanding. But she kept it going.” Her breaking point came when she saw that Minaj had liked, and then unliked, a tweet disparaging Cardi’s mothering skills, something Minaj has denied. “I was going to make millions off my Bruno Mars tour, and I sacrificed that to stay with my daughter,” Cardi went on. “I love my daughter. I’m a good-ass fucking mom. So for somebody that don’t have a child to like that comment? So many people want to say that party wasn’t the time or the place, but I’m not going to catch another artist in the grocery store or down the block.”

“Sources close to Cardi tell TMZ … multiple magazines, websites and photo agencies have reached out with offers for Kulture’s first photo shoot. We’re told the offers have been in the $100k neighborhood or higher. Cardi and Offset have no desire to make a deal … yet. We’re told they won’t even consider it until their daughter’s at least 5 or 6 months old. Our sources say Cardi just wants to focus on being a mom and bonding with her baby. So, Kulture’s gonna be on the low, for now, but we also know she’s already living the high life.”

15-year-old Danielle Bregolie know as “Bhad Bhabie” was nominated by Billboard Music Awards as the Top Rap Female Artist Along with the hottest and popular rappers in the game Nicki Minaj and new artist Cardi B.
TMZ Paparazzi asked if Bhad Bhabie “was expecting “to be nominated and she replies “Not really”Bhad Bhabie says “she already won” by simply being nominated along with the hottest artist in the game, but also says “Cardi is going to win and she deserves it.”
Bhad Bhabie explains why Cardi B is better than Nicki Minaj and seems to not like Nicki Minaj as an artist.
Although a lot of different artist such as 50 Cent, are surprised with the nominee, it may be a difficult competition. Nicki Minaj has hit the Billboard Hot 100 many times. Bhad Bhabie has just started out and her “Hi B*tch” single was a success. Cardi B had a huge breakout year last year with her number 1 single “Bodak Yellow” and her new album “Invasion of Privacy” debuted on No. 1 on the Billboard 200 album charts this year.
If Cardi B doesn’t win the Top Rap Artist, she still can earn the award for Top Female Artist against pop artist. Cardi can also earn Top Streaming Songs Artist, Billboard Chart Achievement Award, and Top Streaming Songs (Video).
Safaree, Nicki Minaj‘s ex-boyfriend and business partner, has revealed that he believes she is deeply threatened by the rise of Cardi B.
The pair split up for good in 2014 and Safaree, who is said to have co-written some of Minaj’s biggest hits, has enjoyed success as a television personality, while Minaj has continued to release material without his creative input.
Cardi B‘s historic climb to the top of the charts with “Bodak Yellow” has garnered her praise from hip-hop’s elite, fans, and others alike. From Missy Elliottand Lil’ Kim to Nicki Minaj, a handful of Cardi’s predecessors have welcomed her success with open arms.
But, if you ask Nicki’s ex Safaree Samuels, the Head Barb’s outpouring of support for the burgeoning Bronx femcee isn’t exactly sincere.
Congratulations to a fellow NEW YAWKA on a RECORD BREAKING achievement. Bardi, this is the only thing that matters!!! Enjoy it💕💞🎀 @iamcardib
Anyway, he now says that he feels the brand he helped her to build has been cheapened by her actions making it easy for newcomer Cardi B to soar in her lane.
During a recent sit-down with Complex‘s Everyday Struggle, the songwriter spoke openly about his highly publicized split, bizarre altercation with Meek Mill, and even revealed that Nicki is sweating over Cardi’s seemingly overnight success. When asked if he feels his former fiance is intimidated by Cardi, he simply responds, “100 percent.”
Safaree’s implications grow even stronger when asked by Joe Budden to elaborate on his stance, to which he replies, “Because I know how she is.” While Nicki did send a message of congrats to Cardi via Twitter when the news of her historic No. 1 was announced, Safaree chalks up the notion to one thing: “One thing you can’t look like out here is a hater.”
And how is Safaree so certain of Nicki’s ill intent? If you ask him: “Once you know somebody, you don’t even have to second guess or wonder.”
Take a look at Safaree’s full remarks on Nicki Minaj and Cardi B, below.
With over 77 Million views on YouTube, Cardi B’s single, Bodak Yellow has made it to number 3 on the Billboard Charts! Cardi B stole the attention of fans and radio stations over the summer when she dropped this hit! The single however is by no means her introduction into the world! Cardi B been putting in work with her music for years and was quick to let social media know that to in a recent video on Instagram.
According to New York Times, a few years ago, she became an a force on Instagram for her frank sexual talk and her comically acerbic wit, and her casually wise and ground-level relatable videos became part of the app’s lingua franca. That earned her a spot on the reliably raucous reality series “Love & HipHop: New York,” though it was clear from the beginning that her personality was far too grand for that show’s microdramas. With encouragement from one of her managers, she took up rapping, and has released a pair of mixtapes that helped to mold her. “Bodak Yellow” is so savage and anyone who listens to it can feel that Cardi B vibe that makes you just want to show off to all your haters and let it be known that you running things! The beat is just hot!
The song has rose to No. 3 on the Billboard Hot 100 in only its seventh week of release!
No female rapper has moved as quickly from street hit to chart topper as quick as Cardi B has. Trevor Anderson, a chart manager at Billboard focused on R&B and hip-hop, said, “We haven’t seen a song from someone brand new go up the charts this quick since Meghan Trainor,” noting that was typically the preserve of more established stars like Justin Bieber or Rihanna. That it happened “without a meme, without a dance, it makes it that much weirder,” he added.
This month, she released a Spanish remix of “Bodak Yellow” featuring the Dominican-American rapper Messiah, one of the key figures in the Latin trap movement. A Spanish-language version of American hip-hop has been gaining popularity over the last couple of years, but it might be “Bodak Yellow” that gives it its breakout moment. Cardi B shared a clip of her singing the song in spanish recently during a radio interview.
We are so proud of Cardi B on her success and its well deserved for all the hard work that she has put in to make it to where she is now! You go girl!
