Cardi B has exploded onto the music scene in recent years and she isn’t taking any prisoners. From spats with Nicki Minaj to calling out the U.S. President himself, Cardi B is proving to be the realest of them all, and these ten examples will showcase exactly how she’s doing it.
1. Smashing Bodak Yellow After A Whole Hour’s Performance
Not many singers can absolutely nail a song to the point where it sounds straight off the album after already performing for an hour. But that’s exactly what Cardi B did in one of her recent concerts, smashing the song with the same amount of passion and verve as the rest without even breaking a sweat, sending fans crazy and reminding everyone that she is still one of the realest out there.
2. Taking On Maternity Like A Boss
Cardi B fell pregnant three years ago and everyone told her she should stop and focus on her role as a mother, saying she was gambling away her career. Instead, Cardi B continued, proceeding to win multiple more awards whilst being a kick-ass mum at the same time. Now that’s real.
3. Going Instagram Live and Talking About What Really Matters
Whilst other artists would only go live on social media to promote themselves and their products, Cardi B has recently taken to Instagram to voice important messages and raise awareness of important issues such as race discrimination, proving she’s in touch and cares about the real issues affecting the world.
4. Instagramming In Support Of ‘Send Her Back’ Chant Victim
In the wake of Donald Trump’s ‘send her back’ statement to Muslim women, Cardi B proved she was one of the realest by backing and empowering the women who suffered most from it. She uploaded a picture of one of the chief victims, showing full support for her and getting over a million likes as people responded in outrage to the statement, Cardi B included.
5. Posting Memes For Days
Cardi B doesn’t care if she comes across as unprofessional or childish when she uploads memes on her Instagram, proving shes more down to earth and in touch with real millennial culture than most other celebrities.
Whether it’s something sassy or something just down-right relatable, Cardi B is always sharing memes with her thousands of followers and proving that she’s not one to act above the things that everyone else enjoys.
6. Her Grammy 2019 Entrance
Cardi B literally burst onto the scene at the 2019 Grammy’s, proving she’s one of the realest when she turned up in an awe-inspiring dress that looked as if she had literally burst out of it. Add to that stunning gloves, pearls, and makeup, she lit the Grammy’s up and put everyone else to shame with her bold creativity and fashion statement.
7. Throwing Her Shoes At Nicki Minaj
There’s no better demonstration that you’re one of the realists when you attempt to throw-down with one of the music industries biggest names. That’s exactly what Cardi B did in 2018 at an after-party following New York fashion week 2018, hurling her shoes at Nicki Minaj over social media comments, proving she’s not afraid to stand up for herself and challenge the queen of sass herself.
8. Her Care-Free Fashion Statement
In 2018, Cardi B commented on how she doesn’t like to flaunt expensive designer clothes and brands all the time. Instead, she is more than comfortable strutting about in cheaper outfits and brands because if they suit her then they suit her. This highlights her ego-free attitude that all celebrities should take up. She keeps it real with the fans by sporting clothes that anyone could wear and afford!
9. Standing Up For Caribbean Culture
Meanwhile, Cardi B hasn’t let her fame get in the way of her staying in touch with her roots either. Instead, its been quite the opposite, as she’s used her celebrity-status to stand up for her Caribbean heritage and Caribbean culture in general. She states in 2018 that no one has the right to take your racial culture away from you or tarnish it since all of us were immigrants at originally. Talk about keeping it real.
10. Showing Pride In How She Identifies
Cardi B took to Instagram to show off her snazzy and revealing dress before a night out despite it being so cold. She said it didn’t matter because she identifies as a bad-ass ‘thottie’ and hoes like her never get cold. This proves just how real a role model she really is to girls all around the world in case they choose to identify in the same way.
