Cardi B beats the boys to win rap album honours at Grammys

12 February 2019

Despite the lack of big names in hip-hop performing at the 61st annual Grammy Awards, it didn't stop Cardi B from channeling her own high school performing days on stage for her own show-stopping performance. "Is her actions justified or nah?" Like we said, the moment was NBD for the recent Grammy victor, as she continued the performance like the professional she is. I'm not saying thanks because she's my daughter.

It was a bold gamble given her lack of experience, but her love of spectacle and fast-talking style helped ensure it paid off. What do you think about the mistake Cardi made?

Before deleting, Cardi shared a post explaining how hard she had worked on Invasion of Privacy, which won Best Rap Album.

Others were unimpressed with her ostentatious rap and dance routine - which featured her twerking on a piano - with one writing there was "nothing exciting" about watching a performer lip-sync, while another added: "Cardi B didn't even sing - why'd she have to lip sync a rap??"

As far as not taking home any statues previous year, Cardi used it as motivation.

An outspoken star with a penchant for drama, Cardi's on again, off again romance with husband Offset provides regular tabloid fodder. And that's exactly what she did in her spicy as hell performance of "Money".

While the rapper, who died previous year from an accidental drug overdose, didn't win, Cardi gave him a shoutout during a video on Instagram, saying: "I read an article that said Mac Miller's family wanted me to win if he didn't win, so I'm sharing this with you motherfucker".

The rapper is also unabashed when it comes to politics, recently unleashing a vulgar rant slamming Donald Trump for the United States government shutdown. She then went on to detail the difficulties of dealing with mounting expectations and recording and completing Invasion of Privacy in the midst of an unplanned pregnancy. Her necklace fell off mid-song but she kept on going.
