On Tuesday, Cardi B made the coronavirus even more viral during a spirited rant that she posted on Instagram.
“Let me tell ya’ll motherf***ers something, I don’t know what this coronavirus is about,” said the 27-year-old Grammy-winning artist, who had her blonde locks parted and wore a bronze, chain-linked gown.
In the video that Cardi B posted on Instagram about coronavirus, she made it clear that she’s very worried.
“Let me tell ya’ll something,” she said. “I ain’t gonna front, I’m a little scared. Sh*t got me panicking.”
Cardi also discussed the international nature of the virus, saying, “I don’t understand how that sh*t was from Wuhan, China, now all of a sudden this sh*t is on motherf****ing tour!”
She also discussed how the virus was affecting fashionistas like herself. “Guess what? A lot of sh*t comes from motherf***ing China, b*tch. “If you’re wondering why your motherf***ing weave or your Fashionnova motherf***ing packages haven’t arrived, guess what b*tch. Coronavirus! Coronavirus!”

Cardi B noted how she was taking the virus very seriously, saying, “I’m telling you, sh*t is getting real! Sh*t is getting real, b*tch, I’m scared.” She captioned her Instagram post with, “Ya keep playing I’m dead*ss F***IN SCARED,” saying that she was stocking up on food in case the worst happened.
So, why is Cardi B so concerned about coronavirus? According to WHO, the World Health Organization, the virus has caused the deaths of 3,500 people. That number continues to grow.
The impact the virus has had on the entertainment industry is massive. Organizers have pushed April’s Coachella festival to October. They will also push the country festival Stagecoach to later in the year. Here’s hoping their payroll companies are well-equipped to deal with the change.
Goldenvoice, who promotes both festivals, issued a statement:
“At the direction of the County of Riverside and local health authorities, we must sadly confirm the rescheduling of Coachella and Stagecoach due to COVID-19 concerns. While this decision comes at a time of universal uncertainty, we take the safety and health of our guests, staff, and community very seriously. We urge everyone to follow the guidelines and protocols put forth by public health officials.”
