Cardi B on if she’s pregnant: No bitch I’m just getting fat


I think if there is one thing we can know for certain, it’s that Cardi B will speak her mind. Cardi’s Instagram, like most celebrities, is a mixture of promotional stuff and personal just-for-fun posts, like close ups of her eight-carat teardrop engagement ring from fiancé Offset. Last Friday, Cardi posted this video to her Instagram:

While most cheered her on her moves and general bad@ssery, one fan thought she’d be clever and asked in the comments if Cardi was hiding a “Kylie Jenner secret”. The answer was “no,” only Cardi added her perfect Cardi B flourish to her response.

No, Cardi B is not pregnant this time either.

The 25-year-old “Bodak Yellow” and “Bartier Cardi” rapper posted on Instagram on Friday a video of her dancing. One user left a comment that said, “Is there maybe a Kylie Jenner secret that we need to know about lol Just asking.” The Keeping Up With the Kardashians star is reportedly pregnant with her first child, although she has not confirmed this.

“No bitch I’m just getting fat. Let me fat in peace, [sic]” Cardi B replied.

The rapper had said at the 2018 Grammy Awards in a now-viral interview with E! News’ Giuliana Rancic that somebody is always saying that she’s pregnant every two weeks.

“So it’s just like, if ya’ll wanna know, ask me, I’ll tell ya,” she said.

Honestly, if somebody is not birthing a child in front of me, I do not ask if they are pregnant. They could be eight-months pregnant, two feet wide, buying breast pumps and I’ll still wait until they bring it up before I say anything. I had to watch Cardi’s video above twice because the first time I forgot what I was supposed to notice and just watched her dance. But the second time I kept my eyes on her mid-section and I just don’t see it, sorry. We’ve discussed a few reasons why it’s not a good idea to ask about a woman’s fertility status, the very least of which is it is none of anyone’s business unless she wants to tell you. However, as Cardi said, if you ask, she’ll tell you. And personally, I think, “let me fat in peace” might become my response to everything from here on out.

So no, Cardi is not pregnant but she was nominated for two Grammys, had a number one single that toppled Taylor Swift from the top spot, is going on tour with Bruno Mars and is engaged so next time anyone wants to ask her something, maybe ask about those things instead. And, as CB will cover, she also appeared in the Alexa Lost Her Voice ad for the Superbowl. Definitely ask her about that because it’s a riot.

    I’m so in love with this woman.

    • Lilly says:

      Me too. There really seems to be a bot lead attempt at a backlash. I noticed after the Grammys that many sites had identical types of comments. Idk why. Strong women? But, they can go away, thanks.

    • mela says:

      who is this woman and i love “let me fat in peace!” YAS!!

      sometimes i gain what and i’m like SO WHAT?!

  2. brooksie says:

    She also got ripped apart on social media for her “hairy stomach” at the Grammys. The trolls need to stop.

      I want that tattoo

    • INeedANap says:

      A woman at my work is 8 months pregnant with twins. It’s pretty obvious and you can even see little hands and feet sometimes.

      A dumba$$ guy no one likes saw her in the hallway and loudly said, “OMG SARAH YOU’RE ENORMOUS HAHAHA.”

      She just looked him dead in the eye and shot back “NAH JOHN THAT’S JUST CHIPOTLE.”

      She’s my hero.

    Ok so the next time a concerned relative asks me about my weight, I have the perfect response. Let me fat in peace. Lol!

  5. HH says:

    I’m so happy for her come up. She’s the rare individual that has used social media and a reality show in the right way. She upped her fanbase, gained popularity, then left to pursue her actual career goals. True hustle.

    I will say that while I enjoy that she’s real, she does need to learn to be “above it” in certain senses. There are times (not this one) when she’ll let fan comments really get to her. She has to let that wash over her and not stop her shine. Because she’s really out here doing that.

    Tbh this whole Cardi B ascent has me feeling that people are mainly laughing at her and not with her

    • Kiki says:

      I agree. I’m also feel like ppl are jumping on the band wagon h3re because she was in the grammies, before that the only time she was mentioned was in connection to Taylor Swift. Even when she broke the records,even when. She had a song with bruno, even when all that stuff went down with Amara La Negra, she was never mentioned.
      I hate seeing her covered in mostly white sites because I feel that same way you do. I’m not a fan but…I don’t like it.

      • Lynnie says:

        Theres a definite bandwagoning phenomenon going on with her I noticed it as early as “Bodak Yellow” Even though I’m not a fan (colorist/transphobic statements as well as lack of musical ability) it makes me sad, because as fast as people will get on it the faster they’ll get off when she’s not the carefree escape they’re using her for and/or she does something stupid. (I can totally see her doing something in relation to Offset cheating on her again in the future that would make people take off the rose colored glasses.)

    • Who ARE These People? says:

      Hi Lynnie! Hope you’re doing well.

      Good point, and I don’t follow this, but I guess it’s relative to whether she presents herself as or is perceived as cartoonish? I hope not.

      “Let me fat in peace” is perfect. Seriously perfect.

      • Lynnie says:

        Hola WATP!! 😊💖 I am doing well thanks for asking hope you are too! School is just sooooo busy, but a lot of stuff happened yesterday so I figured I would check in.

        I think in the beginning a good chunk of it was how she is, and right now she might be playing up the “so relatable” card in this stage of her fame, but I think the problems will come out when she does something that goes past the edgy border for many of her casual fans and/or tries to refine herself and mature. In the case of the former I think many of her new sponsors/deals/fans will drop her, because as of right now her USP is not groundbreaking enough to have the general public consider her an essential in the entertainment scene. With the latter I can see a Lady Gaga-esque decline in popularity if she tries to ditch what she’s typecasting herself as.

        Ultimately it’s like what you said. If she presents herself as cartoonish then it’s fine, but with her need to keep up with the Joneses and thin skin (not in this instance tho her response was warranted) I don’t know how long she’ll be into playing the musical jester.

    • Dee says:

      Meh, let them laugh. She’s laughing in to her millions so she’s got that one up on them. What’s that saying? Laughing all the way to the bank/crying in my mansion etc. I don’t think Cardi cares.

    • Linda says:

      She’s an asshole. Laugh away.

  7. minx says:

    I think she looks great.

  8. Gingia says:

    Omg love her!! “Let me fat in peace” hahaha

  9. Lama Bean says:

    I loved her reading of Fire and Fury. “Why am I reading this? Is this really how somebody lives?”
    I still laugh at it.
