Cardi B Feels Like She Already Won a Grammy
Much internet ink has been spilled documenting the meteoric rise of Cardi B, and that constant chronicling will only continue if Bardi—who's been nominated for a couple trophies at the 2018 Grammys—takes home a few awards this February. Here's the thing though: in her mind, she's already won—whether she actually gets the Grammy W or not.
The Bronx rapper said as much during an appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon Wednesday night (Dec. 20). Being her typically charming self, Bardi discussed everything from her wedding ring to the origin of her rap name to her 2018 Grammy nods. She says she's already won big.
"You wanna know something? I already feel like a winner, you know what I'm saying? I never thought me..." Bardi tells Fallon of being nominated for Grammys, miming a dismissive critic to make her point. For his part, the Tonight Show host agrees. Cardi B's been nominated for Best Rap Song and Best Rap Performance at the awards show, with her platinum-selling hit, "Bodak Yellow," securing her both nods.
Elsewhere in her interview, Bardi reveals that around the time Offset proposed to her, she thought he was going to get her an expensive gift because he'd missed her birthday. That's when she got the surprise of her life.
"I know he was gon' give me a very expensive gift because he wasn't there for my birthday, but I thought he was gon' give me like a watch or something. But he just went out of his way, " Cardi explains, referring to the moment Offset proposed to her this past October.
Watch Bardi explain her feelings about being nominated for two trophies at the 2018 Grammys at the 2:30 mark. The bit about Offset's proposal comes in at 3:04.
