Baby caps off a whirlwind year that included several #1 top hits, a successful highly anticipated album release, a first time ever co-host gig with Jimmy Fallon, a Coachella headliner performance,  a tour and her first Saturday Night Live (SNL) performance where she announced the much rumored before pregnancy news by having the camera reveal her large bump in a white form fitting dress.

She recently lamented about naysayers who think a baby is a career-killer.

“You know what—I’m a grown woman. I’m 25 years old…I’m a schmillionaire and I’m prepared for this,” the “Bodak Yellow” rapper  (whose real name is Belcalis Almanzar)  Power 101’ Breakfast Club radio show.“It just really bothers me and it disgusts me because I see a lot of women online [commenting], ‘I feel sorry for you. Your career is over.’ Why can’t I have both?” she added. “Why do I gotta choose a career or a baby? Why can’t I have both. I want both.”

Yes you can!

Inside Cardi B’s and Offset’s ‘Bronx Fairytale’ Baby Shower

Fresh off confirmation that they secretly wed, rappers Cardi B and her new husband Offset, celebrated the upcoming birth of their first child together at a lavish “Bronx Fairytale” themed wedding in Atlanta, Georgia this week.

The event, named for the New York city burrough where Cardi is from, featured a 16-foot topiary floral wall, room entrance ways that resembled a 6-car subway train, and several rooms draped in 26,000 pink and white flowers, created by C. Waymen Florals & Events.  One area of one room featured a mock “Bardi Baby Bodega” stocked with personalized diapers, bottles, and more.

Guests chilled out in an elegant lounge area and noshed on custom-made piraguas, sliced fruit, and soul food, while sipping on pink coquito cocktails and Hennessy shots, as Vogue style writer put it, a nod to Cardi B’s sister, Hennessy Carolina.

I loved best the “Bardi Baby Book Library,” stocked with Latina and African-American children’s books like “Buenas Noches”, “Luna”, and “Viva, Frida”.

The center piece of the event was a five-tier cake, with each layer a different flavor fave of Cardi’s: Dominican pineapple, strawberry, red velvet, chocolate ganache, and honey bun.

Entertainment included Orchestra Noir, a hip hop orchestra group, and the Ballethnic dance company.

Guests took home as party favors custom purple baby blanket, a nod to the epic self portrait shawl Cardi once wore to the airport.

A glowing Cardi went with light pink bodycon dress with bold  brushed silver statement necklace and earrings while Offset opted for a denim jeans and a jacket with a black turtleneck, a large cross necklace and a studded silver belt.

Guests included fellow rappers and our Bellyitch bumpwatch alums Rasheeda and singer Monica, and at one point in one video shared on Instagram,  Hennessy can be seen dancing with the expectant mom and rubbing her protruding belly.

It was very much the electrifying shower the “Invasion of Privacy” recording artist told Rolling Stone in her cover story that she wanted the event to be.

“I want a lit baby shower. My baby shower’s not starting at no 5:00. My sh*t is going to start at 9 p.m. because that’s how I celebrate, that’s how Caribbean people celebrate,” Cardi said. “I don’t like baby showers that be at 5 p.m. in the backyard, eating, cooking hors d’oeuvres. Nah. Sh*t, I might even drink some red wine. Red wine’s healthy, right?”

First-time mom-to-be rapper Cardi B  channels the late Cuban legend Celia Cruz in the video for  her hit song “I Like It” featuring Bad Bunny and J Balvin off her first major industry album “Invasion of Privacy”.

The song samples a 1967 song of the same name  by Pete Rodriguez which has also been released by The Blackout Allstars group featuring Tito Puente, Sheila E and Ray Barretto so it makes sense.

The video, directed by Eif Rivera, follows the crew on their festive adventures, jamming in the calle, smoking hookahs, clubbing and living their best lives! It’s a great set up to be a summer banger!

Fashion wise, the “Bodak Yellow” hit maker wears a large flowing red empire waist gown that reveals her bump. There is heavy turban use which is also trending and lots of color! Love it!

The hard working pregnant lady just released another video a couple weeks ago for her song “Be Careful” which is a vendetta-esque Western theme. There’s a wedding and a funeral in it and the song is about infidelity and a woman fed up with her man’s wandering and unfaithful ways.

GET HER LOOK:

“I Like It” is currently number nine on the iTunes charts, but is  already on  the top ten of the Billboard Hot 100 charts. The music video is the number one trending video on YouTube and already has over 10 million views.

Peep the videos below (NOTE: some strong language):

 

Cardi B Tells Howard Stern She is Expecting a Baby Girl (LISTEN)

Mom-to-be Rapper Cardi B told Howard Stern during an appearance on his radio show this week that she is expecting a baby girl with fiance, rapper Offset  of the group Migos.

She also told the shock jock on his Sirus/XM show that she is not interested in being a pregnant bride. When Stern asked her if she had plans to get hitched soon, the “I Like It” singer said, “people that don’t have this job wouldn’t understand…truth of the mater is that’s it’s hard to plan a wedding right now.”

The always candid personality said, “First I am not having a wedding pregnant. I want to wear my dream dress and I want to get drunk on my wedding and I want to go on a honeymoon and I want to be drunk for a whole week.”

But it’s all in the timing. “I know for a fact though next spring we are planning our wedding. but it has to be planned at to a point where there’s no worries.”

During a previous visit to the Sirius/XM studios for another show, the “Invasion of Privacy” album recording artist said she thought she would be able to hide her pregnancy and was suprised how difficult it was. She revealed the news during her first appearance on Saturday Night Live (SNL).

Speaking of Cardi B., her maternity style has been similar to Khloe Kardashian’s marked by oversized t-shirts and boots. It’s kinda attainable and could be pulled off by most people.  You just have to get over any insecurity you have with wearing thigh high boots.

This weekend, the rapper sported an oversized black

Cardi B, outfitted in a salmon-colored ruching bump hugging dress, took the stage with Puerto Rican reggaeton and trap singer Ozuna  to perform their 2017 collaboration, “La Modelo.”

 

She later took to her Instagram page to thank the Latin Billboard Awards for giving her an opportunity to perform. The Bronx native did so in Spanish before being briefly interrupted by her fiance rapper Offset of Migos.

Though Jennifer Lopez wasn’t nominated for any awards, she did use the occasion to debut her  new song “El Anillo” during a very elaborate staging. The mom to twins showed off her voluptuous figure in a nude bejeweled body suit.

 

During the show, the guys took many of the awards especially Luis Fonsi, Daddy Yankee, and Justin Beiber whose hit song “Despacito” was a staple on the airwaves all last year.

Cardi B: Last Show Until Baby Arrives Will Be This Weekend’s DC Broccoli Festival

First Janet Jackson in 2016 then Beyonce in 2017 and now Cardi B has canceled a much anticipated tour and performance due to her pregnancy.

The hip hop star shared the news yesterday following a performance at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst.

“You know, shorty keep growing and I be looking like I be moving and everything, but in reality, a b*tch can barely breathe,” Cardi announced in an Instagram video giving fans the news. “I can barely breathe right now. I’ve ate like six chicken wings, and I can barely breathe now.”

Cardi, real name: Belcalis Almanzar, alerted fans of her final performance too.

“Hey guys after Broccoli fest I won’t be doing no more performances .Thank you for understanding ?love yaaa” she captioned the video.

The change of plans comes a few days after Bardi told Jimmy Fallon on his late night talk show during her historic co-hosting gig that she planned to work until the baby arrived.

“I don’t know if it’s the strength of the fetus, but I have never felt so hungry to succeed,” Cardi shared during her co-hosting spot on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon the other week. “I rehearsed for this show,” the rapper continued. “I actually was up today at four in the morning. I was doing a radio run. Tomorrow [is another] radio run; another show, another party. I’m doing it all until I give birth.”

Just yesterday, she shut the show down at the Tinder Presents: Cardi B performance in the Mullins Center at the UMass, a prize to the college for winning the dating app’s “Swipe Off” contest after making the most “swipe rights” compared to other competing schools.

Cardi wore a asymmetrical red and white pinstripe  shirt over shorts to the performance.

The Bronx-native rapper first gained social media attention openly discussing her career as a stripper  which made her Instagram famous. She eventually landed a casting role on the VH1 TV series Love & Hip Hop: New York between 2015 and 2017, but she really started to get some fame after getting an Atlantic Records deal.

Her first single, “Bodak Yellow,” hit the No. 1 spot on the Billboard Hot 100 chart – making her only the second female rapper to steal the top spot with a solo track.

Cardi’s debut studio album, “Invasion of Privacy”, was released last week and entered as the number one record on the Billboard 200. It features  “Bodak Yellow” as well as other notable singles “I Like It,” and “I Do,” featuring SZA.

Earlier this month, Cardi B announced during a performance on Saturday Night Live that she was pregnant and will be having a baby with her fiancé and hip hop group Migos member Offset.

After the news, she said she still planned to tour with Bruno Mars through October, and even twerked during her Coachella performance last week.

During a recent appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres show, she said of the Coachella perfrmance that she wanted to show audiences what she did to get pregnant in the first place.

She had already canceled the Wireless Festival in July and Variety said that it’s “safe to assume” her July dates, and even potentially some shows in May, will be cancelled when her due date rolls around.

Pregnancy Didn’t Stop Cardi B Coachella Performance (PHOTOS and VIDEOS)

First-time mom-to-be rapper Cardi B made her Coachella debut over the weekend and played a few tracks of her recently released hit album  Invasion of Privacy which debuted number one on the Billboard 200.

During the Love and Hip Hop alum’s set that featured a orange back drop with her and her acrobatic dancers dressed in all white, the “Bodak Yellow” singer brought out a host of other popular rappers and hip hop artists and singers to guest perform their respective tracks on her album: Chance the Rapper, 21 Savage, YG, Kehlani and G-Eazy (playing “No Limit”)

The Bronx native earlier revealed that while she received $70,000 for each of her two performances this weekend, she shelled out an additional $300,000 or more to pay for the set, dancers, crew and other production costs that the Coachella team did not pay for, added to the lost income potential due to a non-compete/performance clause the festival attached to her contract stopping her from performing within a radius of the festival for a period of time. Wow!

Not only did she make history recently for beating Taylor Swift’s streaming record, being the first woman to be on 5 songs on Billboard’s Top 10 R&B/Hip Hop charts and the first female solo artist to land on number one of the Billboard 100 since Lauryn Hill, but she also made history as the first host and musical performer to announce her pregnancy on SNL (Saturday Night Live) last week! This mama’s star is meteoric!
