She went viral when she first discussed the coronavirus outbreak on Instagram earlier this month.
During the live stream, “I Like It” rapper was chewing down her cereal when she said: “Like I shouldn’t be eating cereal – like I should be in a restaurant eating sushi. Like, why are we going through this? I don’t understand it.”
Cardi’s comments were made just one day after she went off on the U.S government on how they were handling the coronavirus outbreak while placing a particular focus on President Donald Trump’s supposed lack of knowledge.
“’Hey, listen if you do not have any symptoms of the coronavirus’ which is coughing, fever and whatsoever etc, etc ‘do not get tested because we don’t have enough tests to test everybody,’” the mother-of-one gushed.
“But if a celebrity is saying: ‘Hey, listen I don’t have no symptoms, I’m feeling good, I feel healthy, I don’t feel like nothing, but I went and got tested and I’m positive for the coronavirus,’ that cause confusion.”
Cardi added: “That make people be like, wait a minute now, I don’t have no symptoms, but I know I went out this and that day. S—, I might just have it. S—, I’m scared because I’m around my kid, I’m around my grandparent. What should I do?”
Fans praised the “Hectic” chart-topper for acknowledging the struggle that people are going through during these hard times, particularly those who get “regular paychecks.”
Cardi continued her rant by demanding answers from the government regarding the well-being of American citizens who’ve been left without a consistent income during the pandemic.
“I need to know what’s going on. If you work at the f—ing Pentagon, let a b—- know,” she said on social media last week, clearly agitated by the global crisis.
”Cause I need to f—in’ know, n—-. I need to f—in’ know, n—-. I don’t know if you can tell but I’m losin’ my f—in’ mind,” she concluded.
Before the coronavirus outbreak, Cardi B had been busy working on new music following the release of her debut album “Invasion of Privacy” in 2018.
But given current circumstances, the New York native has told fans on Twitter that she’s halted production on her next record until further notice. Right now, Cardi’s main focus is staying healthy and remaining in self-isolation.
“Invasion of Privacy” has sold over 2.8 million copies worldwide and won Cardi “Best Hip-Hop Album” at the 2019 Grammys. The record spawned several hit singles, including “Bodak Yellow,” “Be Careful,” “Bartier Cardi,” and “I Like It.”
To date, Cardi has sold well over 40 million records, including sales from streaming platforms such as Spotify, Apple Music, and Tidal.
