Cardi B has offered fans a behind-the-scenes look at her latest piercing session.

On Wednesday, the 27-year-old posted a series of videos on Instagram, with the footage showing her holding her Migos star husband Offset’s hand as a body piercing professional gave her three dermal piercings on her chest and a labret piercing below her lip.

“I don’t even know why I’m agreeing to this,” Cardi complained in one clip, before Offset encouraged her by commenting: “Take that s**t like a G!”

“Oh my God, that one hurt!” she yelled, after jokingly asking the 28-year-old why he wasn’t getting any piercings.

“This b**ch hurt. I forgot how it felt,” Cardi captioned the videos, and later showed off the new bling on her chest.

“The finale,” she wrote alongside the clip, in which she revealed the piercings now featured diamond-encrusted piercings, including one that was shaped like a dollar sign.

Earlier in the day, Cardi also took to the platform to shut down rumours that she had been editing videos and pictures of her body by uploading footage depicting her wearing a blue Louis Vuitton bikini.

“Now I know a b**ch gained some weight, because I had to make the thighs match the motherf**kin a**,” she joked. “I know I gained a little bit of weight and I’m actually holding it in… but it doesn’t matter though… I got lipo money.”

The I Like It rapper also touched on the subject on her Instagram Stories, and told her followers: “Like y’all think I’m editing it, just ask me for a (video)… I got a little fat. I gained a little weight, you know what I’m saying? It’s all good. Can ask me for a video, I’ll show ya.”

Cardi B has given her sprawling peacock tattoo a makeover after 10 years.

The Bodak Yellow rapper revealed to her Instagram followers on Monday that she had endured “hours of pain” at the hands of California-based tattoo artist Jamie Schene for the past seven days to give her massive piece of body art an overhaul.

She shared a before and after comparison on Instagram, with the image showing how her old tattoo, which begins at her lower back, covers her right butt cheek, and extends down the back and side of her right thigh, had become dull and faded.

Yet, the update looks vibrant and colourful – besides brightening up the original design, Schene also added more details on the peacock, new floral motifs, and a pink butterfly.

“So after ten years I gave my peacock tattoo a makeover. This whole week I been takin hours of pain getting tatted (sic),” she wrote in the caption. “Thank you @jamie_schene.”

Schene also shared the same snap on his Instagram page and praised Cardi for taking the pain.

“I gave Cardi’s peacock a makeover! Thanks for the trust @iamcardib You’re (sic) strength and determination is inspiring. (Getting tattooed for 7 days in a row is no joke),” he posted.

The 27-year-old showed off the new tattoo in all its glory by uploading an image of her posing in a white bikini and heels. She also surprised fans by rocking a short hot pink hairstyle.

The body art marks the latest collaboration between Cardi and the tattoo artist. Back in May, she unveiled an elaborate tattoo comprised of colourful flowers and birds which begins at the top of her back and ends at the back of her left thigh. In the caption, she revealed the process took “several months”.

Cardi B is unimpressed by how much the skin around her new tattoo has been peeling.

Last month, the Bodak Yellow rapper took to social media to share a series of images of her colourful floral inking, which extends down her back and onto her thigh.

But on Tuesday night, Cardi uploaded a series of snaps to her Instagram Stories showing how dramatically her skin was peeling, particularly on a patch of the tattoo on her leg rendered to look like green and blue peacock feathers.

“The peeling process, yucky,” she sighed. “It looks so nasty. Colourful – but nasty. The peeling is disgusting.”

While it can appear alarming, it’s a normal part of the healing process for skin to peel after a tattoo session.

When unveiling her new body art in May, Cardi credited tattoo artist Jamie Schene and revealed that the vivid design had taken several months to complete.

“Okay guys! Soooo here it is! It took me several months but I’m finally finished. This is my back tattoo! It goes from the top of my back to the middle of my thigh. Thank you @jamie_schene,” the 27-year-old posted alongside a close-up video of the tattoo.

Meanwhile, Cardi has been keeping fans updated on her life at home during the coronavirus crisis, and on Monday, demonstrated how she makes a DIY hair mask for herself and her 23-month-old daughter Kulture using mayonnaise, banana, castor oil, avocado, argan oil, egg, and honey.

“This is really how my hair is – this is my hair texture,” she told viewers while showing off her long natural locks. “My daughter’s hair is curly, but my s**t don’t get curly at all, it’s just straight like this, but I still need moisture. It’s a good hair mask to help your hair grow. All the good things that you put in your body, you gotta put in your hair.”

Cardi B showed her Instagram followers how she makes her own hair mask on Monday night.

In a series of videos posted on her Instagram Stories, the Bodak Yellow rapper revealed she was making a hair mask to help moisturise her and her 22-month-old daughter Kulture’s hair.

“This is avocado (in the bowl), and I just finished putting the argan oil (in),” she demonstrated to her fans. “I’m gonna put (in) mayonnaise, castor oil, olive oil – I know it’s a lot of oil but my baby girl’s hair gotta be really hydrated like mine – and I’m about to put egg and honey (in).”

Cardi then added in avocado oil, a “big chunky scoop” of mayonnaise, a small amount of honey, an egg, another avocado, and a lot of black castor oil, before putting it in a blender to make the mixture smooth, with her explaining: “(It’s) really hard to take avocado chunks off your head.”

Before starting the blender, the star added in a banana and another egg and told her followers: “All of this s**t is good for the hair.”

Cardi proceeded to show off the results on Kulture’s hair and praised the mask for bringing out her curl pattern, before explaining how they have different textures.

“This is really how my hair is – this is my hair texture,” she told viewers while showing off her long natural hair. “My daughter’s hair is curly, but my s**t don’t get curly at all, it’s just straight like this, but I still need moisture. It’s a good hair mask to help your hair grow. All the good things that you put in your body, you gotta put in your hair.”

The 27-year-old returned hours later to show off her glossy locks, with her gushing, “So I finished and this is the end result. This is how I look… nice and shiny.”

She also shared a snap on her Instagram page with the caption: “The end results of all that s**t I put on my hair earlier…Treat your hair ladies.”

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.
