Cardi B has come under fire recently after video footage of her bragging about drugging and then stealing money from multiple men on an Instagram Live session has gone viral.
In the video, an emotional Cardi rampages her way through a story of hardship and triumph, dropping the bombshell as evidence that she'd earned her money on her own without help from others. "I had to go, 'Oh yeah, you wanna fuck me? Yeah, yeah, yeah, let's go to this hotel,'" she stated, before saying, "And I drugged niggers up and I robbed them. That's what I used to do."
The backlash was so huge that Cardi was forced to respond to the drama on Twitter herself, saying:
Although it's still early days for this news story, it's still interesting to see the differences in how people perceive Cardi's actions versus those of male celebrities who have done similiar things. Bill Cosby's career was effectively destroyed after his multiple instances of using Quaaludes to have sex with women were revealed, yet Cardi so far seems to have come through her controversy unscathed. We'll be fascinated to see if she'll be able to hold onto that Pepsi endorsement deal if this story takes off.

Predicting who will take the iconic stage at the Super Bowl Half Time Show has become par for the course in recent years, and predictions get more and more exciting each time the NFL ups the ante with another superstar musician. This year brought us Justin Timberlake's lukewarmly received set during the Half Time Show, and the year before brought Lady Gaga's record breaking display; and if new reports are to be trusted, it seems as though the NFL has already chosen who will take the stage this year.
According to reports from The New York Times, Maroon 5 has been confirmed to play the Super Bowl on February 3rd, 2018 in Atlanta, Georgia. The news comes three years after frontman Adam Levine told Howard Stern that the band was on a "short list" to play the show, saying, "We very actively want to play the Super Bowl."
If they do end up taking the stage, it's likely Maroon 5 will perform hits from all six of their platinum-selling albums, as well as any new material they'll undoubtedly release to capitalise on the publicity. There's plenty to choose from, ranging from early hits 'She Will Be Loved' and 'This Love' to diva collaborations like 'If I Never See Your Face Again' with Rihanna and 'Moves Like Jagger' with Christina Aguilera to later R&B tinged songs like 'Payphone' and 'Don't Wanna Know'. It's already been hinted that Cardi B, who collaborated with the band on their recent hit 'Girls Like You', will take the stage along with Travis Scott.
What are your thoughts on Maroon 5 as Super Bowl performers? Are they iconic enough to take the stage, or should Britney have been called back? Let us know your thoughts in the comments down below!
