Thankfully, more and more vaccines are rolling out each and every day, but there are still tons of people who are waiting for their potentially life-saving shots. So when Cardi B expressed that she was suffering from health issues and has lost weight, fans were initially worried.
Cardi B lost weight
Thankfully, Cardi B’s health issues weren’t COVID related.
The “Up” artist went on IG with a face mask, sunglasses, and a wrapped towel over her head, telling her fans that the reason she wasn’t on Instagram Live for a while was that she was dealing with stomach issues that were so severe she had to visit the hospital.
She said, “Yesterday, I was on Twitter, right, and one of my fans asked me, ‘Oh, why you haven’t gone on live?’ And I told her like, ‘Yo, I went to the hospital b—h. I was sick.'”
She continued, “I was weighing at least 130 [pounds] and now I’m back to weighing 124. Like literally I weigh 124 because I was throwing up my f–king life away, man.” She went on to say that she ate peanut butter with yogurt and four bags of cotton candy to try and regain the weight.
So what was the cause of Cardi B’s illness?
Whatever it is, it’s not the coronavirus, according to Cardi B’s publicist. Cardi went on to say, “And then today my publicist hit me up like, ‘Oh, I just wanted to tell you like ain’t nothing coronavirus-related or something.’ Thank God.”
So it’s not COVID, but Cardi didn’t elaborate on what her health issues actually are. I’m assuming that in addition to handling her media queries, Cardi B’s PR person is also handling all of her medical reporting, too.
Cardi B made headlines in 2019 when discussing her health as well, but for different reasons entirely. The Bronx native swore off of plastic surgery for good after she had to cancel a string of shows due to health issues that arose after constantly going under the knife.
Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion performed “WAP” at the 2021 Grammys on a set that looked like a giant bed.
Cardi B kicked off the performance with a trippy, projected art show that contained some flashes of Andy Warhol-meets-H.R. Giger imagery for her song “Up.” Then, the performance transitioned into the arrangement for “WAP” and Meghan Thee Stallion walked onto the stage to perform a duet of the popular 2020 single.
The set for the routine was intricate and they performed a variety of suggestive moves on top of a cartoonishly oversized bed. After the performance, Trevor Noah came out on stage and quipped that he dreamt of being in bed with Cardi B and then his grandmother came running into the bedroom and scolded them for wearing shoes on a mattress.
Cardi has recently also lamented about her inability to shoot a “proper” music video these days and she doesn’t feel right doing a video with “one of them hood videographers.” She also responded to fans who asked her to put out new music stating that she doesn’t “want to put out a song right now.”
She did go on to say that the only song she’d be interested in putting out right now is “like a really calm song.”
CARDI B CLAPS BACK AT CANDACE OWENS AFTER SAYING IT’S ‘INCREDIBLE HOW UNEDUCATED SHE IS’
Conservative commentator Candace Owens wanted all the smoke after her appearance on the Full Send podcast this week, during her analysis of LeBron James’ “liberal agenda.”
While bashing the intelligence of the superstar athlete, Cardi B caught some strays, reigniting beef that had since died down. “It’s incredible how uneducated she is. She just got embarrassed on Twitter,” Owens said of the “I Like It” rapper.
“She was just saying stuff about politics, and I was just responding. I wasn’t even being rude, I was just telling — like, she literally doesn’t even know what country she’s in, how the country works. You know, she’s hardly, you know, when she types, there’s 87 typos in basic words.
And yet, same thing, she’s mouthing off and saying things and she literally doesn’t understand like — I don’t even think she understands like, Congress has a Senate and a House of Representatives. She has no idea what she’s talking about.”
The Bronx native fired back with the quickness, commenting on the Instagram post of the podcast clip on popular blog Neighborhood Talk’s comments section.
“What’s embarrassing is that she tried to get her lawyers to make me do a public apology after she been attacking me for months and try to make me pay her 75K in a month or she threatened to sue wit NO CASE,” Cardi commented. “Like how smart you are and don’t even know the law?”
Their feud dates back to September 2020, fresh off the release of the No. 1 hit single “WAP” collab with Megan Thee Stallion. Owens took to Twitter to post a clip of Cardi’s interview with conservative Ben Shapiro on his show, as well as an interview with then President-elect Joe Biden to criticize and fuel further outrage for the raunchy nature of the song.
Cardi, however, was unfazed, commenting, “There’s certain people I want to curse out, but I don’t want to give them clout,” she said. “For example, when me and Candace Owens got into an argument, I gave that bitch 2 million followers.”
As of writing, Celebrity Net Worth shares that Cardi B has earned a net worth of $40 million. This number is a combination of her work as a rapper, actress, producer, reality television star ,and entrepreneur.
