Cardi B gives advice on what not to do in a strip club
Cardi B has had quite a career, going from a stripper to an Instagram personality to a chart-topping rapper. She just released her debut album, Invasion Of Privacy, and the title is appropriate. During her musical performance on Saturday Night Live, she revealed her baby bump by wearing a skin-tight white dress. Haters called her pregnancy "career suicide," but Cardi's taken it in stride, asking, "Why do I gotta choose a career or a baby? I want both."
To promote the album, the Bronx rapper has appeared on several talk shows, charming audiences with her hilarious comments and quirky catchphrases. Her appearance on Ellen was no different. During the interview, Ellen showed footage of a very pregnant Cardi B twerking on stage at the Coachella Music Festival. "They say the more you move, the easier [the baby] will come out," she explained. Then she added, "I was just trying to show the world how I got pregnant in the first place."
The father of the baby, of course, is Migos from the hip-hop group Migos. They've also had a lot of success over the past year, topping the charts with hits like "Bad and Boujee," "Motorsport" and "Stir Fry."
Ellen told Cardi that she recently hung out with Offset and helped get him a discount a car. Cardi said that she'd get a sweet deal on "baby car" - a Lamborghini truck - because although she doesn't drive, she's a "professional passenger."
Later in the interview, Cardi revealed that she worked as a stripper for three and a half years.
When Ellen asked if she liked it, Cardi replied, "Hell yeah!" While some people look down on stripping, the profession gave Cardi the nest egg she needed to jump-start her music career:
" lot of people want me to be like, 'Oh, I hated it, I don't recommend to nobody.' I don't recommend it to everybody, because it's not for everybody. But it made me money, it paid my bills, it got me my own apartment, it got me my boob job..."
Then Ellen and Cardi played a game of Five Second Rule. The rules are easy: You have to name three things that fit in a certain category in five seconds. One category was "Three Things You Should Not Do At A Strip Club," and Cardi had the perfect answer:
"Not give money. Slap the booty real hard. And eat chicken wings. People eat chicken wings in the strip club. It's kind of gross."
She's right. Who on earth is going to strip clubs for the cuisine? The game had another hilarious moment. When presented with the category "Three Things That Make You Laugh," Cardi B blurted, "Money, chocolate and penis." Oh Cardi. Never change!
