Cardi B has been ALL OVER the internet lately, from expletive-filled rants to winning Grammys to adorable Kulture videos.

We just can't get enough, never let it end Cardi. You're a treasure to us all. Except when she gets really X-rated with her hubby Offset (cheater, cheater, compulsive eater). We ain't here for that.

After making history for being the first woman ever win Best Rap Album at the Grammys last Sunday, Cardi has announced a brand new single is being released today with Bruno Mars.

While we're delighted that the rap goddess is collaborating again with her Finesse singing partner Bruno, we did NOT need the Valentine's video with Offset.

Basically, the 26-year-old posted a Valentine's Day video featuring her husband, while playing a clip of her new song (which sounds like a banger).

It essentially involves her Migos lover grinding against her head (yes, seriously) while she mouths the words of her own rap in the song. Help.

She captioned the video; "PLEASE ME OUT NOW! CARDI B AND BRUNO MARS…HAPPY VALENTINES DAY, WE GETTING REAL F*CKING FREE TONIGHT."

We're not exactly sure what that means, so we asked Google Translate.

They didn't know either, but suggested Cardi is just expressing excitement for sexual contact with her husband on Valentine's Day and the release of her new single with Bruno. Seems legit.

If anyone need an injection of cuteness, make sure to watch their daughter Kulture say 'mama' over and over, while Offset tries to make her say 'papa'. It's just so pure.

Posting to Twitter, she teased Offset about their baby's favourite word; "This what happens when you throw in my face that she said papa first; now she can’t stop saying mama."

We have to hand it to Cardi, she always provides the entertainment factor.

Rapper Cardi B has opened up about her experiences of suffering from post-partum depression following the birth of her daughter, Kulture Kiari.

The I Like It singer revealed her emotional rollercoaster following childbirth, explaining how she assumed she'd "avoid" developing the common condition.

The 26-year-old spoke to  Harper Bazaar for the March cover issue, and elaborated on the difficulties of facing life with the feeling of heaviness.

Cardi explained that she felt fine six months ago, when Kulture was first born, until post-partum depression hit her unexpectedly;

“I thought I was going to avoid it,” she revealed to the magazine. “When I gave birth, the doctor told me about postpartum, and I was like: ‘Well, I’m doing good right now, I don’t think that’s going to happen."

She continued; “But out of nowhere, the world was heavy on my shoulders.”

She also got candid about the feeling of losing control over your body following pregnancy, admitting that her body "doesn't feel the same".

She said: “For some reason, I still don’t feel like my body’s the same. I feel like I don’t have my balance right yet. When it comes to heels, I’m not as good at walking anymore."

“I feel like I’m holding a weight on me. I don’t know why because I’m skinnier than I’ve ever been. But there’s an energy I haven’t gotten back yet that I had before I was pregnant. It’s just the weirdest thing.”

Cardi B welcomed Kulture in July with her rapper husband Offset, but the pair announced their divorce shortly afterwards.

The couple secretly wed in September 2017, insisted that the split was good for both of them, and that they simply "fell out of love".

Taking to Instagram, the Grammy-nominated artist said:

“We’re really good friends and you know we’re really good business partners and you know, he’s always somebody that I run to, to talk to and we got a lot of love for each other, but things just haven’t been working out between us for a long time.

Well, it looks like Offset 'That Dick' and Cardi B are officially back together. That dick is the devil, but it won her heart back in the end. How romantic…

The hip-hop couple have officially called off their divorce for now and have reunited as a couple, TMZ is reporting.

Sources close to the pair told the outlet that Cardi B returned to their Atlanta home with their baby Kulture; "This is the first time she's been back to stay there with Offset and Kulture since December."

Only a few days ago, the Money hitmaker posted an Instagram image captioned; "I wanna go home" written over a photo of Offset kissing Kulture.

The talented duo split up following cheating allegations, with Offset rumoured to have slept with numerous groupies. Cardi announced their breakup after one year of marriage last month;

Sources told the outlet that Offset has changed his phone number in an effort to show that "he's serious about being honest and faithful," per TMZ.

"Our sources say the new digits are strictly for Cardi and business calls," TMZ claimed, given Offset's history of philandering with other women behind Cardi's back. Offset is also sticking to a 'no groupies' rule to try and make their marriage work.

Cardi spoke about how accusations of Offset cheating had changed their relationship during an October interview with W.

“Every single day there’s rumours about me and my dude. And it almost drives me crazy, because I start to believe them. I don’t have no proof. I don’t have receipts. But I just got to know my man. We practically on the phone 24 hours a day."

"If I can’t find him, I’m going to find his friend. Somebody going to answer the phone. But I cannot be feeling insecure, to a point that I would drive my dude away, because these people want that to happen," she continued.

“So everybody been bugging me and everything, and you know I’ve been trying to work things out with my baby father for a hot minute now," Cardi claimed, emotionally.

"And we’re really good friends and you know, we’re really good business partners—you know he’s always somebody that I went to to talk to, and we got a lot of love for each other but things just haven’t been working out between us for a long time," she said.

“And it’s nobody fault," she continued. "It’s just like, I guess we just grew out of love, but we’re not together anymore. I don’t know it might take time to get a divorce, and I’m going to always have a lot of love for him because he is my daughter’s father and yeah."

We hope he can stick to his 'New Rule', maybe Cardi should listen to more Dua Lipa?

Diplo really doesn't waste any time, does he?

Cardi B is only freshly single after a major split drama with her baby daddy Offset, after their year-long marriage.

The 26-year-old rapper clearly has a long line of suitors vying for her hand, and after posting up a stunning Instagram image of herself, Diplo just had to join in.

The image of herself showed off a gorgeous pink outfit on December 16, and she captioned the shot;  “I’m Dasani with the drip, bab ymommy with the clip."

The mother of adorable five-month-old Kulture has been keeping herself busy since Offset crashed her set at Rolling Loud on December 15, but Diplo hopped on the Cardi train.

The 40-year-old musician commented; "I'm single btw" under the Instagram post, and fans damn well lost their mind.

Cardi B has yet to respond to the cheeky DJ and music producer's comment, we're fairly sure she most likely needs time to herself after the whole Offset drama.

The Migos rapper has been doing everything in his power to win her back, but Cardi is staying strong like the queen we know she is.

In an Instagram live video on Monday night, she did admit that she was “missing the D” though, so who knows if she can resist Offset's charms for long.

We're Team Diplo, his caption and comment game is SO STRONG.

Good morning only to Cardi B.

First of all, let it be said that nobody knows the ins and outs of anyone else's personal relationship, so this opinion feature is purely based off the recent chain of public events involving Cardi and her (*cough* loser) hubby.

The infamous American rapper has hit the headlines time and time again since her meteoric rise in 2016, for a variety of reasons.

Most recently, it’s as a result of her estranged husband and fellow rapper Offset, of hip-hop group Migos.

After a string of alleged affairs and cheating scandals, Cardi announced their separation earlier this month, stating that they “grew out of love.”

That was all fine and dandy, until Saturday night, when Offset decided to gate-crash her headline show.

Oh, by the way, this was the FIRST EVER FEMALE headliner show of Rolling Loud in Los Angeles, but he decided to take this moment away from her in order to beg for her forgiveness.

He ruined the moment that was years in the making, so instead of the attention being on the rap star, it was transferred to her estranged husband.

After saying that he loved her and would do whatever it takes to get her back,  his embarrassment of Cardi did not result in reunited love. Shocker.

Naturally, he abandoned the stage to scattered boos. Of course, the internet had it’s weave snatched, and targeted her ex-husband with (semi-deserved) enraged tweets which only worsened the issue at hand.

He doesn’t need more attention than he’s getting, attention is power, and only Cardi deserves empowerment at this time.

Now where in the world could Offset have gotten the not-so-bright idea to interrupt her mid-show to roll out flowers that spelled out the words ‘Take Me Back Cardi’?

Maybe, from every rom-com ever?

Where normally the male protagonist does something unforgivable, or at least extremely disrespectful to the female character, and then carries out a grand show of his affection and apologises in public before she gives in and kisses him, cue the credits rolling?

Yes, I’m looking at you, Love Actually.

Most people claim that, by declaring his love for her so publicly and essentially opening himself up to media frenzy, he is profiting and capitalising off their relationship issues.

Problems which he and only he caused by cheating on a rap goddess who has worked incredibly hard to get to where she is now.

It has also been pointed out that he is emotionally manipulating her by using an audience to sway her into accepting his apology.

Needless to say, Cardi was NOT impressed with his actions. Rolling Loud are also deservedly getting dragged for allowing the whole charade to take place.

Tariq Cherif, co-founder of the festival, has even released a statement to Us Weekly saying:

"Headliners and their teams have full control of the stage and who is allowed on it during their set at Rolling Loud. The festival does not interfere with or influence a headliner’s set list. We have never and will never do anything to change a headliner’s set."

The big reunion which Offset had hoped for did not happen, but maybe the entire thing was just for publicity sake. If it was, it worked.

He’s now firmly the focus of the entertainment media for the next week at least, and then he’ll most likely be yesterday’s news.

Anyone online who demands that Cardi return to a relationship where she was not being treated as she deserved to be need to called out for this gross error in judgement.

Offset wanted his ego stroked, and stormed into her place of work, calling to mind that absurd episode of Friends where Ross crashed into Rachel’s office with a picnic because he felt threatened by a male co-worker.

Toxic relationships become the centre of the stage, rather than the talent of the women involved. It’s as if they aren’t allowed to have love and a career.

His obvious display of toxic masculinity squashes any sense of true love, he simply shifted the power towards his side of the net by making himself the victim.

He most likely knew that his show of humiliation wouldn’t be met with joy by Cardi, but by putting himself in that position, he now has millions of fans feeling pity for him because of her rejection.

It’s a classic tactic done time and time again by people who want to have their cake and eat it too, they never hear the word ‘no’.

The entire debacle is problematic for a rake of reasons.

First of all, Cardi has been open in the past about her experiences with domestic abuse, and dating an incarcerated man. Both to escape abusive behaviours such as violence as well as poverty, Cardi B then turned to stripping.

She was in the Bloods gang from the age of sixteen, and in an abusive relationship at just 19. Exotic dancing was her key to success; her videos describing her experiences in the trade racked up millions of views online.

After already suffering at the hands of men she was in relationships with, before building up a HUGELY successful career, watching her allowing herself to be associated with a man who (allegedly…but pretty obviously) cheated on her is painful for her fans.

She is a much-loved personality whose music is an emblem of her own fiery energy.

Her music has broken hundreds of records, from SEVEN Grammy nominations, MTV VMA awards, to Billboard Hot 100 accolades such as the longest running female at the top of the charts for Bodak Yellow.

Her official debut album, Invasion of Privacy, has already broken streaming figure records and is Certified Gold in the US. She’s also a self-proclaimed feminist who believes in boosting other women, not to mention equality for men and women.

She is so unapologetic in the rap scene, dominating American charts especially because of how women relate and respond to her.

Her take-no-prisoners Bronx attitude and accent have attracted fascination and fans worldwide.

She is a figure who is far more complex than people give her credit for, and deciding whether or not to find the energy to forgive the father of your child for breaking your heart must be incredibly hard.

The day after all of this drama, the 26-year-old asked her fans to abandon their tirade against her ex, saying;

"I know I see a lot of people bashing me because I'm defending my baby's father, they think I'm gonna get back together with him. I'm not saying that I'm gonna get back together with him, I just don't like that bashing online thing.”

She’s being the bigger person after having her gig interrupted, suffering infidelity and humiliation as a result of his actions, and yet he thinks he deserves to have her back?

If he actually cared about her at all, he would give her the peace needed to heal from the damage which he has caused, and leave her the hell alone.

Cut off the negativity and toxicity from your life, and you will see how much you are worth. Only you can decide your worth, not some guy who thinks it’s okay to cheat on someone as amazing as you.

Cardi doesn’t waste her time, she doesn’t waste her money, and she certainly shouldn’t waste her life on someone like Offset.

Rant over, mic dropped, bodak yellowed.

Our hearts go out to Cardi B, she is stuck between a rock and a hard place.

Recently, Offset has been very public about wanting the rapper back, and it must be tough.

They are still officially broken up but a source close to Cardi B said she's 'very torn' about their future.

Understandably, the-26-year-old "still loves" the Migos' member and you have to remember that they share five-month-old Kulture.

The split has "been really hard" for the pair, said the source.

Offset is "trying to win Cardi back" but our girl is sticking to her decision and is "not on board yet."

Right now, Cardi's focus is "solely on Kulture" and she's expressed that she "wants her space," according to the source.

Additionally, the exes haven't been spending time together, but Cardi does want "her family to be whole again."

Although the source added that she is having a hard time trusting her husband.

That doesn't really come as a surprise though as Offset allegedly had an affair with a 20-year-old model.

We can't imagine how challenging this time must be for Cardi – stay strong, gal.

Since Cardi B gave birth to her first child, Kulture Kiari Cephus, back in July, the rapper has somehow managed to keep the newborn totally out of the spotlight.

Zero pictures, zero videos, zero papparazzi shots. We commend the rap star for managing this feat; it's no easy accomplishment to hide a four-month-old from the limelight when you're a high-profile celebrity.

We cannot handle this level of sweetness.

Cardi captioned the image; "My heart", and her 36 million followers lost their damn minds. #Kulture is already trending on Twitter, because the four-month-old was destined for social media adoration.

Offset and Cardi B, despite announcing their separation through their Instagram accounts, have insisted that they would always have love for each other for the sake of Kulture;

"He’s always somebody that I run to to talk to and we got a lot of love for each other but things just haven’t been working out between us for a long time and it’s nobody’s fault."

How could anyone deny this fact when they look at her cute little face?

The rap goddess opened the MTV VMA show this year by holding a Moon Man swaddled in a pink blanket, tricking everyone into thinking that baby Kulture was finally going to be revealed, but it was a mere joke.

Offset replied to the separation announcement with the comment; "Y'all won".

We, for one, are just so glad to finally have received this gift of Kulture photos. What we do to deserve this?

Since social media superstar and rapper Cardi B gave birth to daughter Kulture Kiari Cephus four months ago, the world has been ACHING to finally see her.

We've always been weak for baby pics, and we have no doubt that Cardi B's little one is adorable.

Entertainment Tonight caught up with Cardi B during her L.A. fashion launch for Fashion Nova, and the hip-hop star she explained how she will eventually get around to posting some photos of her new baby, but at the moment she still has her reservations:

"One day, soon," she said. "I’m scared of sharing her to the world. There are too many mean people out there."

Looks like protective momma bear mode has been officially activated…Now that's relatable content.

"Sometimes I do want to show people how beautiful and how precious she is. She’s so precious. There’s a lot of people that have crazy minds, you know. I want to protect her! She’s my little buggy."

She also spoke about how her newborn has already developed a sassy personality of her own to match her famous mother:

“She’s just getting smarter by the day,” Cardi B told PEOPLE. “She’s recognising everybody. She knows what she likes. She has attitude…I think she’s more me. I think she loves me a little bit more, but I think she’s just loyal to whoever gives her the milk,” she joked.

The rap goddess, who has become one of the most successful female artists of all time since she exploded onto the scene two years ago, is clearly a proud momma already.

“She’s just got personality. That girl’s got personality”.

Cardi B's need protect Kulture from online haters is so strong that she recently turned down a HUGE sum of money for pictures of Kulture. 

She told Beats 1 on Apple Music that she was even offered a seven figure sum for pictures in October, but said  "I’m just not ready yet."

Cardi has had her fair share of online feuds with internet trolls and cruel comments, so it's totally understandable that she wants to keep her young one as far away from that as possible.

Cardi B is currently loved up with baby daddy Offset, who has his own music industry career as one-third of hip-hop group Migos. 

The I Like It rapper also told Entertainment Tonight that she and her partner would like to have two more kids, saying: “It could always be a hit or miss, but I don’t want nothing right now,” she said.

We hope the family get max enjoyment with their newborn, before the media attention gets too overwhelming.

The long standing feud between Nicki Minaj and Cardi B came to a head last night, when the pair were caught up in an altercation at a New York Fashion Week party. 

A number of videos have surfaced online of Crdi lunging at Nicki, and allegedly throwing a shoe at her. 

According to Cardi, the incident was instigated by Nicki after Nicki made a comment about Cardi's two month old daughter Kulture. 

'I've let a lot of shit slide! I let you sneak diss me, I let you lie on me, I let you attempt to stop my bags, f*ck up the way I eat!,' Cardi wote in an Instagram post following the incident. 

'You've threatened other artists in the industry, told them if they work with me you'll stop f*ckin with them!! I let you talk big shit about me!!'

She continued: 'I addressed you once in person, I addressed you a second time in person, and every time you copped a plea!! But when you mention my child, you choose to like comments about me as a mother, make comments about my abilities to take care of my daughter is when all bets are f–kin off!! I've worked too hard and come too far to let anybody f–k with my success!!!!'

Cardi left the fight with a pronounced bump on her forehead. 

However, Variety confirms that the blow was dealt by the accidental elbow of one of Minaj’s security team.

Over on Twitter, the conversation has already turned to whether or not people are on team Cardi or team Nicki, with some declaring it the 'Battle of Female Rapsupremancy.'

We're thinking that there already isnt enough female representation in the rap game, so there's definitely room for both of them to succeed, without playing off one another.

Cardi spoke out earlier in her pregnancy about the expectation that once women embark on motherhood, they can't have as flourishing a career. 

'I hate the certain things people say . . . like 'I feel bad for her. Why is she doing that in the height of her career?' she said in an interview with New York's Hot 97 radio station.

'Why can't I have both? Why do I have to choose a baby or a career? Why do I have to be in my mid-30s to have a baby? What am I doing wrong?'
