Diddy, Oprah & 36 Other Celebrities With Cardi B Fever


Cardi B’s career trajectory continues to soar now that her debut album has reached the ears of fans. Her album, Invasion of Privacy which is expected to hit Number 2. on the Billboard charts this week, has gained her plenty of new fans and respect among the top heavy hitters in hip-hop. All weekend, rappers from today and yesteryear have commended the Grammy-nominated artist on her thrill seeking project like T.I., Missy Elliott and Logic.

The love also reached outside of rap lines with acts like Green Day and President Oprah Winfrey boarding the Cardi B train. Speaking to VIBE VIVA in 2016, Cardi gave away what truly has people hooked on her life. “It was my personality that got me where I’m at,” she said of her days of Instagram fame. “So, I can’t tell anybody to do this or that and be on Instagram. But I will tell you that you can use your personality and be bubbly and be yourself in any field that you’re in. That alone will take you far, for real.”

A few years and several chart-topping hits later, Cardi is on top. Take a look at some of the celebrities who can’t seem to get enough of the no longer regular shmegular girl from the Bronx.
