Cardi B – who stuffed herself with ribs over Memorial Day weekend – thinks she’s gotten chubbier. The 27-year-old rapper is currently filling media outlets for her weekend Instagram stories going viral. Cardi, who recently drove fans into meltdown with a single release coming “very soon”, took to her stories on Sunday night from her quarantine kitchen. The eye-popping display from the “Money Bag” rapper’s surgically-enhanced assets was nothing new, but Cardi’s admission of having “definitely” packed on the pounds now sees fans in debate.
Scroll for the video now seeing fans write: “Either way ur banging PERFECT b*tch.” Shot in selfie mode and seeing the mom to 22-month-old daughter Kulture delivering her signature, keep-it-real vibe, the video showed Cardi flaunting her killer curves in a skin-tight, green bikini top with a hoop clasp finish. Yellow crochet sleeve gloves, bright blue hair and nails, and full makeup completed the look as Cardi spoke into the camera: “I’ve definitely gained weight on my face, and on my whole body, but on my face,” she said.

Clearly not the first mention of the “quarantine 15” that’s seen body-positive users struggle as “fat phobia” returns amid the global pandemic. Cardi recently made headlines for confirming that a new music drop would come “very soon,” but only when she’s dropped some weight – “My single is coming when I lose weight. Never!” Nah, it’s coming real soon, I swear. And ya’ll gon’ love it,” she said.
Cardi is already in the charts amid COVID-19 via her feature alongside singer Camila Cabello in British singer Ed Sheeran’s “South of the Border” track.
Cardi has been keeping her 65.8 million Instagram followers occupied amid COVID, sharing both family updates with husband Offset and the couple’s daughter Kulture – “anything else would’ve been basic,” Cardi said as she explained her daughter’s name. The Migos rapper’s wife has fronted media outlets for accusing celebrities of getting paid to test positive for coronavirus in early parts of the pandemic, having since donated proceeds of her remixed “Coronavirus, sh*t is getting real” rant to the relief effort.
May 23 saw Cardi make headlines for unveiling a giant back tattoo that she revealed she’d been working on for “several months.” The bold colorful design snaking its way down the “Press” rapper’s back was debuted in a revealing bikini photo with her shouting out tattoo artist Jamie Schene – Jamie also revealed that the inking took him over 60 hours. The update also shouting out the Fashion Nova clothing empire Cardi has a partnership with currently sits at 7 million likes.
