This is not how Cardi B anticipated learning of her five Grammy nominations.
The “I Like It” rapper was on her way to the courtroom on Friday for a misdemeanour arraignment. That is when a member of the press informed Cardi of her Grammy nominations, enough to count one on each finger of one hand.
“I am?” she asked. “How many nominations?” After learning of her several Grammy nods, Cardi stuck out her tongue and let out one of her trademark noises.
“This is not how expected to find out I’m nominated for a Grammy,” she tweeted a video of the reveal on Friday. “I need a do-over.”
Cardi’s Grammy nominations are for: Album of the Year (Invasion of Privacy), Record of the Year (“I Like It”), Best Pop Duo/Group Performance (“Girls Like You” with Maroon 5), Best Rap Performance (“Careful”), and Best Rap Album (Invasion of Privacy).
