Former Press Secretary Anthony Scaramucci Seems to Think Cardi B Is a Man
Anthony Scaramucci has admitted to being a fan of Nicki Minaj and French Montana, but the former White House press secretary clearly has no idea who Cardi B is.
As he's been doing since getting fired after a 10-day stint at the White House, Scaramucci was on Twitter Wednesday morning (Oct. 11), answering questions his followers asked him. After confirming his love of Nicki, Scaramucci was asked if he liked Cardi B. In a now-deleted tweet, he replied, "My sons do. Not as familiar with his music.
While Scaramucci may not be familiar with Cardi B, he definitely should pay attention. On Monday (Oct. 9), the New York rapper's "Bodak Yellow" topped the Billboard Hot 100 chart for the third week in a row, becoming the longest-running No. 1 song from a solo female rapper in Hot 100 history.
Cardi surpassed Lauryn Hill's "Doo Wop (That Thing)," which previously held the title in 1998. The rapper also tied Taylor Swift's "Look What You Made Me Do" as the longest-running female at No. 1 on the Hot 100 for 2017. Cardi could surpass Taylor if "Bodak Yellow" remains at No. 1 for another week.
The rapper's hard work has also paid off in the awards department. At the 2017 BET Hip Hop Awards, Cardi beat out Aminé, Kodak Black, Playboi Carti and Tee Grizzley for Best New Hip-Hop Artist and also took home the awards for Hustler of the Year, Single of the Year, Made-You-Look (Best Hip Hop Style) and Best Mixtape.
