After a weekend full of birthday surprises, Cardi B surprised her fans by leaking a nude photo on social media.
On Tuesday, the “WAP” rapper accidentally shared a nude selfie with her 77 million followers on Instagram. The provocative pic, in which she appears topless, was quickly deleted from her IG Stories but that didn’t stop her from trending on Twitter.
Shortly after, Cardi took to Twitter to address the leak. In a voice note, she lamented over her “stupid” mistake.
“Lord, why the f**k you have to make me so fu**ing stupid and retarded? Why, why, why?” she said. “You know what, I’m not gonna beat myself up about it. I’m just gonna eat my breakfast and then I’m gonna go to the party.”
But she refuses to let it bring her down. “I am not going to think about it. No, I won’t. It is what it is. Shit happened. F**k it, it’s not even the first time. I used to be a stripper so whatever. Ay, dios mio.”
Over the weekend, Cardi celebrated her 28th birthday with a wild weekend in Las Vegas where she reunited with her estranged husband Offset, who surprised her with a Rolls-Royce Cullinan. The couple was seen partying together, sparking rumors of a reconciliation after they shared a kiss.
It appears that Kulture’s parents may be on the rebound after Cardi filed for divorce from her husband on Sept. 14. “They aren’t back together but [it’s] just a matter of time,” a source tells E! Online. “She loves the attention from him and he’s trying really hard to win her back.”
Meanwhile, “WAP” continues to dominate the charts. After four weeks at No. 1, the Megan Thee Stallion-assisted hit currently sits at No. 3 on the Billboard Hot 100.
But despite its success, “WAP” was not submitted for consideration at the 2021 Grammys, according to Pitchfork. Instead, the song will reportedly be submitted next year as part of Cardi’s upcoming album.
