Cardi B is on one after learning she’s been nominated for two BET Awards—Best New Artist and Best Female Hip-Hop Artist. You want to talk about a bonafide glow-up? Look no further than the woman born Belcalis Almanzar, who started out as a stripper, carved a lane in hip-hop, and emerged both a mainstay of social media and reality television star.
The VIBE Viva digital cover star took to Twitter upon hearing the news, and celebrated in true Cardi B fashion. “Oh my god, haha, I can’ believe it!” she could barely articulate, wearing a towel and shower cap. “Ahhhhhhhh! [Laughs] Suck my d**k!”

Concerning her journey and controversial rise to fame, Cardi had this to say to us on the binaries of feminism: “Who’s to say that I can’t inspire a woman who works at a Fortune 500 company as much as she inspires me? I think that’s important to know.”
Congrats to Cardi! The BET Awards are set to take place June 25, 2017 at Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles.
