THE OKURRRRR KWEEEN POPPED OFF DOWNUNDER To begin 2019. Although she only didn’t tour my city, the festivals she did play in looked amazing!!!
I’ve been team cardi from time and its been incredible to see how big she’s gotten in the last few years. The best thing about her is that she hasn’t changed who she is. I think thats so powerful in an age where people are out cat fishing themselves through social media. She’s every bad bitches spirit animal and I cannot wait to see her live one day!
On her first trip to Australia she did Origin Feilds Festival in Perth and Field Day in Sydney.
The paps seemed to treat and communicate to the 26 year old rapper like she was a second class citizen.
“You’re in Sydney now, mate, you’re in Australia,” one of the photographers reportedly shouted at Cardi as she and her entourage, which included her publicist, walked through the terminal. “It’s our rules, not yours, buddy. Our rules, not yours. Be clear on that. What’s going on with the blanket, Cardi? You got an identity crisis or something? Give the fans a picture, Cardi.”
Cardi went on IG and let Aus paps know how she was feeling.
“So as soon as I got here, you know, paparazzi’s all in my face, and I get that, I understand that,” Cardi said on the weekend. “But what didn’t sit well with me was this man telling me, ‘You’re in Australia now… you’re playing by our rules.'”
She drew comparisons between the photographer’s demand to slavery and oppression.
“It don’t sit well with me when a white man tells me that s—,” she continued. “Like, excuse me? Sir… you think this is the 1800s? Are you crazy? Like, do you think that people are still getting oppressed or something?”
“It’s like, what is your rules? What are you talking about? Like, my n—a, do I look like a little f—ing slave to you? Do I look like a f—ing slave to you or something? That’s how y’all see people? That’s how y’all see coloured people or something, that you guys say foul s— like that… that s— got me so f—ing mad. That s— don’t sit well with me, like, it just made me think like, yo, I just want to go home.”
“Can you guys please leave me alone?” Cardi said back.
For a country that is on stolen land I’m not surprised they would talk to another poc disrespectfully.
Back to the looks though, her righthand in fashion – Kollin Carter came with her on this tour and made sure all her fits were fire.
Her tour ensembles included some Custom Beaded Bodysuit and wrap Skirt from Shane Justin
