WATCH: Cardi B Gets Laughs In 'Tonight Show' Chat
Cardi B is nothing if not entertaining...brrrr!
The “Bodak Yellow” star brought her unique attitude and speech style to The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon – and the studio audience couldn’t get enough.
Fallon asked the rapper, whose real name is Belcalis Almanzar, to explain the origin of her stage name.
“You know what, my sister name is Hennessy, right, so everybody used to call me Bacardi,” Cardi B said. “And then it was my Instagram name, like Bacardi, Bacardi B, but for some reason, my Instagram keep getting deleted, and I think it was Bacardi that had somethin’ to do with it. So I just shortened it to Cardi B.”
Cardi also elaborated on a tweet early this month in which she vowed: “I'm not giving NO ADULTS NO Christmas gift.”
She told Fallon she’s buying gifts for a lot of kids. “And I got new god kids out of nowhere,” Cardi said. “You know, once you start making money everybody want you to be their kids’ godmother.”
The rap superstar also showed off her engagement ring, spoke about her Grammy nominations, and teased her new single (out Friday).
On her success overall, Cardi admitted: “I’m so proud of myself.
“I really work my a** off for it. It finally pays off. I have been proven.”
