The rapper Cardi B alienated fans by publicly contemplating the idea of spending $88,000 on a purse.
The rapper wrote on Twitter “Should I spend 88K for this damn purse? Omggg it’s tempting.”
The backlash from fans was swift, as they criticized the rapper for flaunting her money at a time when many people are facing severe financial hardship due to the global pandemic.
Cardi B defended herself by saying that she has donated more than $1 million during the pandemic, which includes sending money directly to fans, and she also donated meals to first responders. But to quell the furor, she asked followers to post receipts showing their donations to charitable causes, so that she could match them.
She later posted a picture of the purse and argued that it was an investment because it would go up in value.
“W.A.P.” too raunchy for Snoop Dogg
The rapper Snoop Dogg seems to think that Cardi B’s recent hit “W.A.P.” is too raunchy. And this is coming from a guy that once made a music video that included hardcore pornography.
W.A.P. is an acronym that stands for “wet a*s p*ssy” in reference to a woman being turned on, and the song includes lyrics like “Bring a bucket and a mop.”
The Left had a field day mocking conservative commentator Ben Shapiro for saying that if she needs a bucket and a mop, that sounds like a gynecological problem. But now Snoop Dogg has weighed in as well, saying that the song doesn’t leave enough to the imagination.
Complex reported that Snoop Dogg said that he might have been involved in making a remix of the song when he was younger, “But as an older man… I just don’t want it that fashionable to where young girls express themselves like that without even knowing that that is a jewel that they hold onto until the right person comes around.”
The music video currently has more than 307 million views on YouTube.
