I love it. It wasn’t instant. I had to sit with it for a second, think about it, and then decide. But I love it. I’ll get to the obvious Offset connections in a second, but first … You know that thing where certain names are so singular they become almost unusable, because who wants the comparison? Elvis. Full Story

This is Cardi B’s first Met Gala. Aren’t you sad now that we haven’t had years of Cardi x the Met? Cardi came out swinging. LOOK AT HER. There’s no coasting on a basic body-con dress because a) she’s pregnant or b) it’s her first Met Gala like so many others would have. Full Story

I don’t think Nicki Minaj or Cardi B wanted to be sharing headlines this week. In a week that should be monumental for them both, individually, Nicki Minaj and Cardi B are entangled in a predictable but still frustrating storyline. It’s the easy narrative: the lone chart-topping women in a genre dominated by men released new music in the same 7-day span (like men do all the time) so they must hate each other and want to see each other fail. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

  There are two artists dominating music at the moment: Cardi B and Drake. Drake’s God’s Plan is, so far, the biggest song of 2018. It’s been #1 for 11 weeks straight now. Every week there’s a new think-piece or three about why God’s Plan has been so successful.  Read Full Intro

Bodak Yellow dropped 10 months ago. It’s hard to imagine the charts without Cardi B. Her culture dominance and her presence in the pop world are now so pervasive, it’s astonishing that it has only been 10 MONTHS since Bodak Yellow became the instant classic that catapulted her from rap-reality star to hip-hop powerhouse. Full Story

Cardi B capped off a weekend of incredible reviews and an already-certified gold album (my review is coming up next) with the official announcement of her pregnancy. On SNL. In a tight white Christian Siriano dress, during a performance of the best song on an album full of great songs. No big deal. Cardi B had a better weekend than all of us. Full Story

Cardi B does not fit the mold of the “perfect victim.” The “perfect victim” is not an ex-stripper. She’s not a woman of colour. She doesn’t dress the way Cardi B dresses or talks the way Cardi B talks. We’ve seen it time and time again in sexual assault cases and Lainey has written about it on multiple occasions– victims must be perfectly chaste and obedient or rich or famous or white before anyone starts to pay attention. Full Story

The thing that almost angers me the most about Bruno Mars beating out Jay-Z and Kendrick Lamar (and even Childish Gambino) for Album of The Year is that it puts me in the position of having to say anything about Bruno Mars other than that he’s a goddamn delight and I enjoy him very much. Bruno Mars is a goddamn delight and I enjoy him very much. Full Story

Cardi B’s “genuine-tivity”

One of my favourite celebrity profiles of the year was Allison P. Davis’s piece for New York Magazine on Cardi B. It delightfully captures Cardi’s rags-to-riches come-up while also giving a delicious glimpse into the whimsical mind of rap’s brightest breakout star. Full Story
