Cardi B urges males to be beneficiant on Valentine’s Day | Leisure

Cardi B urged men to be extra generous on Valentine’s Day (02:14:21).

The 28-year-old rapper, who has Kulture, two, with Migos star Offset, has reiterated her belief that men should spend more than women on annual Romantic Day.

On a number of Twitter posts, Cardi said, “Yes! Men deserve a gift for Valentine’s Day too, but the gift has to be cheaper than the girl’s gift. So if he buys you flowers, you buy him weed.” (sic) “

The rap star was later accused of hypocrisy, and fans pointed out that she has been very generous to Offset over the years.

But Cardi quickly hit back on the microblogging platform.

She wrote, “Okay, because of my Vday tweet, men came up on my Twitter and roasted me.” But you bought your husband a Lambo, but remember … I have a 550K ring on my left hand, a 400K ring on my right, thousands of dollars in Birkins, so much jewelry, a Lambo truck and RollsRoyce Truck .. so we even have presents

“So if you don’t like the flower and grass comparisons, let me give you one that makes men happy. If you buy her thousand dollar Louboutin heels, she should buy you a PS5 that costs around $ 550. It’s fair … now if you think your gift should cost more than your girl’s gift, you’re just ******** “

Meanwhile, Cardi recently insisted that for the past two years she has worked harder than ever.

The ‘WAP’ hitmaker believes she could have easily left the music business in 2018 and 2019, but decided to fight for her career instead.

Cardi, who worked as a stripper before becoming a rap star, said, “I could have given up in 2018 and 2019 when the Cardicancel party was also. That made me tougher. As a dancer, I worked harder when there was less money in my bank account . Now in life when everything is against me and I am most doubted then I go HARDER (sic) “
