Cardi B has showed off her natural hair in an Instagram video.

The Bodak Yellow hitmaker wears wigs in a variety of different colours, lengths, and styles when she’s out in a public, so her fans have rarely seen her natural hair.

However, on Friday, Cardi showcased her long, voluminous curls in a video on social media. In the clip, she can be seen stroking her locks, displaying her long, multicoloured nails in the process, and admiring how long her tresses have grown while wearing a white robe before a shower.

“Look at my hair, this is deada*s my f**king real hair… yes, let me wash it. Wow, I’m so proud of myself,” she told her followers, as running water could be heard in the background.

To explain why she was so proud of her curls, the 27-year-old shared a throwback photo taken four years ago when her natural hair barely touched her shoulders.

After washing her locks, Cardi posted another video showing her in the middle of a styling session. One half of her hair looked like it had been blow-dried while the other had been straightened into a sleek style, with the strands reaching down past her breasts.

In May 2018, the rapper admitted she had been neglecting her hair while promoting Vida Hair Growth products.

“I haven’t really been taking care of my natural hair,” she shared. “I just be leaving it in braids for such a long time and changing wigs, but since I’m gonna be home more often, I’m going to be taking care of my natural hair by myself. I promise you, this s**t makes your hair grow to be so healthy and beautiful (sic).”

Cardi B has joined the cast of Fast & Furious 9.

Vin Diesel, who produces and stars as Dominic Toretto in the franchise, revealed on Tuesday that the Bodak Yellow star would be appearing in the long-running action franchise by posting a video on Instagram which showed him and Cardi on the U.K. set of the film.

“Day 86 here on the set of Fast 9. I know I’m exhausted, we all gave every single thing we could for this movie, put it all on the table, put it all out there,” he told viewers, before Cardi added, “I’m tired – but I can’t wait. I ain’t gonna front, this is gonna be the best one.”

“We’re so blessed. The last day of filming in the U.K. All love always,” Vin continued. They both started laughing when the 27-year-old joked that she needed to take a nap and the video concluded with them repeating the film’s release date “May 2020”.

Fast & Furious star Jordana Brewster appeared to approve of the casting, as she wrote in the caption, “Yaaaaaasssssssssssssssss (sic),” with the raising hands emoji, and Meadow Walker, the daughter of late Fast actor Paul Walker, also gave her seal of approval.

It’s not known what role Cardi will be playing in the movie, which marks her second time acting in a film following Hustlers earlier this year.

In October, the rap star had teased that she had another acting job in the pipeline on The Ellen DeGeneres Show by saying, “Yup. I am going to film for a movie this month.”

Cardi B’s casting comes just a day after Vin revealed Latin popstar Ozuna had bagged a role in the film. They will join Fast & Furious regulars Brewster, Michelle Rodriguez, Ludacris, Tyrese Gibson, and Nathalie Emmanuel as well as returning stars Helen Mirren and Charlize Theron and fellow franchise newcomers John Cena and Michael Rooker.

Offset surprised his wife Cardi B by gifting her two massive diamond rings on her 27th birthday.

The Bodak Yellow rapper, who turned 27 on Friday, posted a video on her Instagram page over the weekend showing her being presented with the expensive presents by the Migos star during a birthday dinner.

In the footage, Cardi can be seen receiving a covered silver plate and opening it to reveal two massive diamond rings in jewellery boxes on a bed of rose petals. Cardi couldn’t hide her shock and joked she might cry before thanking Offset and giving him a kiss.

She later posted a close-up video of her new jewellery – two stackable rings that are comprised of small heart-shaped diamonds in a band, while the top ring also features a massive heart-shaped rock.

Cardi can be heard saying, “Wow, this is really huge… hearts going all the way around. I love you husband.”

“Thank you sooo much babe @offsetyrn I can’t believe it,” the star wrote in the caption to the video, alongside a shocked emoji. Offset also shared footage of her trying the rings on and added, “TITANIC DIAMOND… HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO MY QUEEN U DESERVE EVERYTHING THAT COME YOUR WAY I LOVE YOU AND OUR FAMILY TOGETHER.”

Cardi was showered with gifts on her birthday. She also received a large diamond pendant necklace which featured a picture of her 15-month-old daughter Kulture inside as well as a blue Hermes Birkin bag, to top off her rainbow Birkin collection, and Louis Vuitton slippers.

The rappers, who had a brief split when Offset was accused of infidelity, celebrated two years of marriage at the end of September.

Cardi B has already landed another acting gig following the success of her film debut in Hustlers.

The Bodak Yellow rapper appears alongside Jennifer Lopez, Constance Wu and Lizzo in the movie, about a group of strippers who set up an initiative to scam wealthy men when the sex industry bottoms out following the financial crisis of the late 2000s.

The film was the star’s first feature film acting gig, and in an interview on The Ellen DeGeneres Show on Thursday, she insisted it’s definitely not her last.

“I enjoyed it, and I just couldn’t believe I was on set for like 16 hours and then like… is this what actors gotta go through?” she said of making the movie. “Artists, we have long days but it’s just full of excitement, like we move around we’re doing something. Like, you gotta wait in the trailer until it’s your turn, you gotta do the same scene like 20 times.”

When host Ellen asked her, “You’re not going to do that again aren’t you?” Cardi responded: “Oh yes I am. Yup. I am going to film for a movie this month.”

Probing the star as to why she wanted to repeat the experience after describing that she didn’t enjoy the process of acting, the I Like It rapper joked: “I enjoy the cheques.”

The musician also claimed she accepted her judging role on Netflix’s hip-hop competition series Rhythm + Flow for the money, but revealed she naturally became invested in the show’s contestants.

“We did it for the cheque, but once we were there… you know something, I grew a connection to the contestants,” she told host Ellen. “I was really emotional the last day. I was so sad.”

Cardi B has urged women not to criticise those who have had plastic surgery, admitting she “remembers the struggle” of having tiny breasts and a flat bottom.

The 26-year-old rapper has been very open about the procedures she’s undergone, including having her breasts redone and having liposuction following the birth of her daughter Kulture in July 2018.

And in a video shared on Instagram on Sunday night, Cardi told her fans that she will never criticise anyone for going under the knife because she understands the reasoning behind it.

Calling out “natural b**ches” who leave comments such as “Ugh, your body’s fake. Ugh, plastic this, plastic that”, Cardi continued: “Let me tell you something. I don’t like talking s**t about b**ches’ bodies because I remember the struggle, baby. I remember when I had no motherf**king t**ties and I remember when I had a fun-sized a*s.”

She captioned the video: “Am I bugging ? Women talk about uplifting each other, but are we really uplifting each other ?”

In the comments section of the clip, the Bodak Yellow star went on to slam those women who leave remarks such as, “Don’t go to the ocean or you’re gonna kill all the whales with your motherf**king plastic a*s body.”

“If you confident in yourself, you don’t got to be under the next b**ch’s comments talking about her body,” she wrote. “My sister, she natural, she got small t**ties, she got a little cute ass. She ain’t hatin’ on the next b**ch because she know that if she want it, she could get it.”

Cardi B has opened up about embracing her “weirdness” in a new video campaign for sportswear giant Reebok.

The Bodak Yellow hitmaker was named as a brand ambassador for the footwear and apparel company in November.  

Now, Cardi has teamed up with Reebok executives to front the Meet You There collection, a streetwear-inspired take on athleisure. 

In the campaign images, the 26-year-old wears a green, blue, and white colour-blocked sports bra, black bike shorts, and a black sports jacket from the line. The accompanying video shows Cardi posing in the outfit on a city rooftop and talking about what makes her unique.  

“I just thought I was weird because everyone keep telling me I’m weird (sic),” she admitted in the video. “But when I started doing videos on Instagram and so many people claimed they relate to me, I was like, ‘I guess there was a lot of weird people out there!'” 

She also shared that her style was influenced by The Bronx borough in New York, where she grew up, and admitted she was insecure about her accent before she realised she had to be true to herself.  

“A lot of people always talk about how I talk – I have a really deep accent,” the star continued. “I started feeling really insecure about it, but it’s like, ‘Nah, forget it.’ I gotta be real with myself all the time. That’s something I gotta do to stay me.” 

The Meet You There collection, which offers sizes 2XS to 3XL and caters to men and women, also features tank tops, gym leggings, hoodies, trainers, and shorts.

Cardi B has showed off her comedic side in her debut ad for Reebok.

The I Like It rapper was named as a brand ambassador for the sportswear giant last November, and on Tuesday, she dropped her first commercial – called Nails – in which she promotes the updated Club C Classic shoes.

During the short film, Cardi is seen sitting in a salon getting her hair done, as she discusses blocking a man on her phone who had failed to text her two days after they met.

She then notices her pristine white Reebok Classic Club Cs are untied, and rather than mess up her hair and lean over to tie up her shoelaces, she lets her freshly manicured nails do the work.

With her hands resting on her legs, Cardi’s nails grow to the floor, tie her shoes for her and then retract.

At the end of the video, the 26-year-old turns to a fellow customer and simply states: “Nailed it… So anyway, I think I’m going to block him.”

Cardi uploaded the video to her Instagram page too, with Snoop Dogg among the thousands of fans who commented on her post, simply writing: “U 2 Much,” alongside three of fire emojis.

Inga Stenta, senior director of global marketing at Reebok, said she wanted to “take a different path” while working with Cardi on the Club C Classic advert.

“Working with Cardi on Nails, we aimed to create a moment that is authentic to Cardi while breaking convention and doing something more engaging than a typical celebrity cameo. We took a different path, putting her in an everyday-type situation that shifts in an unexpected manner, spotlighting the iconic Reebok Club C in a completely unique way,” she commented.

Anna Wintour praises Cardi B’s 2019 Met Gala gown

Anna Wintour was “completely in awe” over the crimson gown Cardi B wore to the 2019 Met Gala.

The Bodak Yellow rapper attended the camp-themed event held at the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute in New York City back in early May and wowed the crowd with her dramatic red high-neck dress which was covered in 30,000 feathers and featured a custom-made bodice containing 44 carats worth of rubies.

Accordingly, U.S. Vogue editor-in-chief Wintour has now shared the latest Met Gala was the moment she was convinced Cardi has what it takes to be a fashion icon.

“I was completely in awe of the stunning dress that Cardi B wore to the Met this year. She looked unbelievable,” she said in an interview for her Go Ask Anna video series. “It was designed by Thom Browne, she could barely move but it made no difference. I mean, people parted like the queen was coming through because she looked so fantastic. And I had not seen her look as chic or as original beforehand, so I have completely rethought my opinion of Cardi B’s style.”

Elsewhere in the clip, Wintour noted that sleeveless dresses are her summer must-have and jokingly commented that she wishes more fashion shows “started on time”.

And of all of the hundreds of fashion shows she has attended over the course of her career, the editor pinpointed John Galliano’s fall 1994 presentation held in Paris as her most memorable.

“My very favourite fashion show of all time was a show that John Galliano gave in a broken down, dilapidated, extraordinary mansion in Paris and the collection was all black,” the 69-year-old recalled. “John created every single look himself. And he’d been out of the public eye for a while. So, it was very emotional for him and for everybody in the audience that he was having his comeback.”

Cardi B has splashed out $80,000 (£63,000) on diamond jewellery for her baby daughter Kulture.

The Bodak Yellow rapper took to Instagram on Monday to share a screenshot of a text message showing the details of her purchase as well as a photo of nine jewel-encrusted tennis bracelets and a pair of large diamond stud earrings.

“Everything will be ready at 3, bracelets are comin out cuteeee and changed the setting to the studs with the bigger pair, send ur guy at 3 also pls call Linda and tell her to wire the 80k, I just spoke to her she needs ur approval,” the text sent to Cardi stated, with the star adding in the caption, “Just spent a bag on my daughter, you know a bad b**ch gonna spoil. If I’m iced out my daughter gotta be too. YEUP IM BRAGGING CAUSE I BUST MY A*S TO DO SOO (sic).”

Cardi tagged New York-based jewellery company Pristine Jewelers in the post, and also uploaded a snap of Kulture, who she welcomed with her Migos rapper husband Offset last July, wearing one of the diamond bracelets.

However, she has since deleted both images from her Instagram page.

Cardi is no stranger to expensive bling, as the eight-carat teardrop-shaped diamond engagement ring Offset proposed to her with is worth an estimated $500,000 (£395,000).

Speaking about the ring on the red carpet at the 2018 Grammy Awards, the 26-year-old commented to E! News reporters, “It makes me feel good. Even when we’re in an argument… I’m like, ‘Does he really love me?’ He got me a half-million dollar ring, yeah he does.”

Cardi’s shopping spree comes shortly after she announced that she would be dropping new single Press, which she first teased in December, on Friday.

Cardi B has explained she admitted to having liposuction because she wanted to educate her fans on the reality of undergoing the cosmetic procedure.

The Bodak Yellow hitmaker, 26, revealed she had undergone the surgery, which is used to remove unwanted body fat, during a performance at the Beale Street Music Festival in Memphis on Sunday night (05May19). During the set, she told fans that she shouldn’t be moving around too much so soon after having the work done.

Speaking to Entertainment Tonight’s Katie Krause at the launch of the rapper’s latest Fashion Nova clothing line at the Hollywood Palladium in Los Angeles on Wednesday, the star confessed she wanted to share her ordeal so young women considering the procedure know what it entails.

“I want to explain to people how hard it is to process. I feel like people look at girls on Instagram and go, ‘Oh, they got their lipo done and it was so easy”,’ the I Like It rapper confessed. “It is just such a long, hard process.”

The star went on to highlight the overwhelming changes that her body is going through post-surgery, and compared them to the changes she saw after giving birth to daughter Kulture, who she shares with 27-year-old husband Offset, last July (18).

“(It’s) almost like the same process as after you give birth to a baby and you see your body change and snapping it back,” she suggested.

Last week, the Please Me star also told reporters from the outlet that she had “just got her boobs redone” to give herself a confidence boost following her daughter’s birth.
