Bruno Mars Has Already Found Cardi B’s Replacement for the 24K Magic Tour

Bruno Mars was blindsided by news of Cardi B pulling out of their joint tour to take care of his newborn baby, so much so that it’s being reported that his team is “scrambling” to find a replacement ASAP.

From TMZ:

Sources connected to Bruno’s tour—slated to kick off in September—tell us he’s without an opener and, so far, there has been no replacement made for Cardi. We’re told Bruno’s people were burning up the phones Friday … starting conversations with reps from a number of musicians but nothing is close to being locked down.

Our sources say Cardi’s decision to back out of the tour has created some issues … dancers were hired, costumes made and stage backdrops built.

Back in February, Mars announced that Cardi would be joining him on the final leg of his 24K Magic Tour. However, last Thursday (Jul. 26), Cardi announced via Twitter that she “understated this whole mommy thing” and she’s “not ready physically” and “not ready to leave [her] baby behind since doctors explained it’s not healthy for her to be on the road.”

Bruno was supportive of Cardi’s decision to stay home and enjoy being a new mommy and replied with a heartfelt message, saying that the “most important thing is you and your family’s health” and “you are absolutely doing the right thing.”

He went to say that he loved her and would “play Bodak Yellow every night in your honor” before ending his message with “Please give your baby girl a hug from me and a hug on behalf of everyone on the 24K Magic Tour. Love, Bruno.”

And after days of working overtime to find a replacement for Cardi, it sounds like he’s already found someone to fill her spot.

Responding to a fan who asked who would be taking over, Bruno joked, “I got a cousin learning all of Cardi’s songs right now. It’s gonna be great! He’s super excited.” When asked if he would reveal who’s really replacing Cardi, Mars said “Nah.”

With the tour kicking off in September, Bruno should be making an announcement about who will be taking Cardi’s spot pretty soon. Of course, Cardi B is irreplaceable, but I’m sure he’s found someone good enough to fill her shoes.

Funniest “My Mama Said” Jokes & Tweets

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you will know that at least three major news events occurred over the past week.

The 12 boys from the Thailand soccer team, along with their coach, were successfully rescued from a cave they’d been trapped in for two weeks. France won the 2018 FIFA World Cup. And Cardi B memes are running rampant all over the internet.

Someone recently shared a picture of Cardi B (real name: Belcalis Marlenis Almanzar) as a child, and as Twitter is wont to do, they turned it into a hilarious meme, pointing out Baby Belcalis’ “tattle tale” stance and combining it with the phrase “my mama said…”

Perhaps the funniest part of the meme is that we all know a little smart azz child who doesn’t mind putting your business out there. Hell, some of us were that annoying, smart-mouthed kid. But the captions are what really set this meme off. Combine that with the thought of Cardi B’s voice as a tiny tot and you have the perfect recipe for pure hilarity.

Cardi B & Offset Welcome Baby Girl Kulture Kiari Cephus

Baby Bardi is here! Cardi B is officially a new mom after giving birth to a baby girl.

Cardi and her husband Offset welcomed their daughter Tuesday night (Jun. 10) at a hospital in Atlanta, and Cardi officially announced the birth of Kulture Kiari Cephus via Instagram Wednesday. Kiari, the baby’s middle name, is Offset’s real first name.

In her announcement photo, Cardi can be seen posing nude surrounded by a bed of flowers. Cardi tags her husband in the caption on the photo, which also reads the name of their baby girl her birthday: 07/10/18.

This has been a long journey for Cardi, who was rumored to be pregnant back in February after Super Bowl weekend. When fans questioned her via Twitter, she denied the pregnancy rumors, saying that she was just gaining weight and told them to “let me fat in peace.”

A month later, pregnancy rumors swirled even more when she attended and performed at the iHeart Radio Music Awards wearing outfits that were clearly covering her belly, and also reports at the time suggested she would be a VERY pregnant woman by the time her Coachella performance came around.

By April, Cardi decided she was going to reveal the news herself, and confirmed her pregnancy by debuting her baby bump during her SNL performance the week before Coachella. She confirmed she was having a girl in May, and continued to work throughout her pregnancy, releasing videos and performing shows here and there, and even making a surprise appearance at the birthday bash in Atlanta in June.

Cardi B Parties With Bad Bunny & J Balvin in “I Like It” Video

Cardi B is on a roll!

Just one week after dropping her “Be Careful” video, Cardi B is back with the release of the music video for her latest single “I Like It,” featuring Bad Bunny and J. Balvin.

The colorful Eif Rivera-directed video finds the pregnant rapper—dressed in garments inspired by the late legendary Latin singer Celia Cruz—meeting up with her collaborators for a dance party that starts in the club and ends up in the streets of Miami.

The Billboard Hot 100 charting song samples Pete Rodriguez’s “I Like It Like That” and is a strong contender for song of the summer.

While Cardi continues her non-stop promotional campaign for her debut album Invasion of Privacy, the 25-year-old mommy-to-be is also patiently awaiting the birth of her first child with her fiancé Offset. “I love my little one, I wanna kiss her,” she shared on Twitter.

Baby Cardi will make her big arrival sometime near the end of the summer right before Cardi is due to kick off her joint tour with Bruno Mars.

Check out her “I Like It” video above.

Maroon 5 & Cardi B’s Cameo-Packed “Girls Like You” Video Celebrates Women

Maroon 5 teams up with a pregnant Cardi B and about two dozen famous women in the video for “Girls Like You.”

With Maroon 5 frontman Adam Levine in the center, the nearly five minute star-studded video pays homage to women as the camera pans around the room showing off appearances from famous women like singer Camila Cabello, Olympian Aly Raisman, comedienne Sarah Silverman, Gal Gadot, YouTube personality Lilly Singh, Tiffany Haddish, “Stranger Things” actress Millie Bobby Brown, Ellen DeGeneres, Jennifer Lopez, Mary J. Blige, race car driver Danica Patrick, Rita Ora and more.

The final scene of the video features a cameo from Levine’s wife Behati Prinsloo and their adorable 1-year-old daughter Dusty Rose.

Dressed in an oversized yellow blazer (to hide that pregnant belly), Cardi B delivers her verse: “Not too long ago I was dancing for dollars / Know it’s really real if I let you meet my mama / You don’t want a girl like me, I’m too crazy / But every other girl you meet is fugazi…”

Cardi gushed about the collaboration on Instagram, writing, “I F**KING LOVE THIS SONG AND THE VIDEO IS SOO INSPIRING!!!”

Cardi B Is a Scorned Bride in Kill Bill-Inspired “Be Careful” Video

Don’t mess with Cardi B! The rapper shows us exactly what she means when she tells her man to “Be Careful” in her latest music video, which shows the pregnant rapper as a scorned bride who becomes a not-so-grieving widow as fast as she became a wife.

In the opening scenes of the Kill Bill-inspired visuals, directed by Jora Frantzis, Cardi is a not-so-blushing bride in an all-white gown as she raps about infidelity while standing at the altar with the man she’s supposed to spend the rest of her life with.

But what’s supposed to be a happy time for Cardi quickly turns into sorrow as the video goes dark (literally and figuratively) and Cardi, now dressed in all black, rolls up to the same church she got married in. However, this time, she’s attending her husband’s funeral.

As she looks into his open casket, she raps about how he “makes [her] sick” before she closes the coffin and rides off into the sunset.

Watch Cardi B’s “Be Careful” video here:

After taking a leave of absence from social media earlier this month in response to her feud with Azelia Banks, Cardi reactivated her Instagram to promote her new video.

She talked about the video shoot in a post on IG, calling it “one of the hardest videos” she’s ever done.

“It was one of the hardest videos I ever did because it was in the desert, like in the middle of nowhere, and bitch I was so hot,” she said. “My pregnant motherf**kin’ ass. I never sweat, and I was sweatin’ that day, like my underarm was sweating, under my titties. I never get under titty sweat, but that day, for sure.”

“Be Careful,” which has been certified gold, is the third single from Cardi’s gold-certified debut album Invasion of Privacy, following the hit singles “Bodak Yellow” and “Bartier Cardi.”

The femcee, who is expecting her first child, a baby girl, with her fiancé Offset this summer, is due to hit the road with Bruno Mars for his “24K Magic World Tour” this September.
