As Cardi B’s stardom is growing, she’s learning to handle the media and the public in her own way. So, after a video supposedly showing Offset cheating on her surfaced, Cardi told everyone to back up by posting a video of her and her fiancé being awfully close.
In a clip that was originally posted on Instagram live, Cardi can be seen laying across a bed while Offset is “banging” her from behind. The internet went crazy, assuming the two were publicly smashing each other, dubbing the clip a s*x tape. However, Cardi told everyone to just relax.
“I was fully clothes on live ,I was not f**kin on live !Yaaa can’t be that slow,” she posted shortly after.
Was this her way of responding to Offset’s cheating rumors? Is she proving that she’s ignoring the hype and believing her man? No one knows for sure. What we do know is that Cardi is totally unbothered.
She showed similar unbotheredness when the Barbz came for her earlier this December.
After she released two new music videos, internet trolls (aka Nicki Minaj fans) couldn’t resist poking at Cardi and Nicki’s instance that there is no beef between them. And, for someone who swears there’s no bad blood there, Nicki Minaj did a terrible job of not fueling rumors that her and Cardi B have beef.
Cardi Vs. Nicki
After watching her new videos — G-Eazy’s “No Limit” and Ozuna’s “La Modelo” — Nicki’s fans swore up and down that Cardi is stealing Nicki’s style… down to the facial expressions.
Around the 1:50 mark of the “No Limit” music video — which was released earlier this week (Dec. 20) — Cardi can be seen making the “opps!” face, an expression Minaj makes a lot.
Throughout “La Modelo,” Cardi is wearing a bodysuit, which seems to be Nicki’s go to for most of her music videos. The star wore bodysuits in her “‘Anaconda” music video, her “No Frauds” music video, in Yo Gotti’s “Rake It Up” music video, and in Lil Uzi’s “The Way Life Goes” music video.
With this in mind, Team Minaj hit social media, shaming Cardi for not being herself.
“Cardi b being a wanna be nicki in no limit video and releasing her Spanish song as well,” Twitter user @spooky_stan tweeted alongside a sleeping emoji. “I said what I said …she copying nicki hairstyle ,nicki singing …everything ..if only she can copy her writing ability …oops.”
User @lifestyle__1 agreed, writing, “Right!!!! Since when Cardi B sing & rap at the same time only @NICKIMINAJ does that.”
Nicki fueled them on, knowing the internet’s tendency to dramatize everything. “I’m glad y’all peeped,” she tweeted.
Ignoring It All
In response, Cardi’s fans ran to Twitter to tell Team Minaj and Minaj herself to relax.
“I like Nicki Minaj but she should NEVER come for Cardi B about mimicking Anything when she is a plastic carbon copy of the ORIGINAL Queen Bee Lil Kim. #NoShadeButShade,” wrote Twitter user @HottieBodyTati_.
“Cardi b been in the game like 6 months and she’s better than Nicki Minaj and anything Nicki Minaj ever did,” tweeted @dinad4178.
Cardi was literally uninterested, as she didn’t respond to Nicki’s fans or Nicki herself. She has more important things to worry about… Like watching “Bartier Cardi” reach the top of the Billboard Hot 100 chart. As many s*x tape leaks and unflattering videos that’s been circulating the internet, Cardi is still making hits.
