Cardi was a guest on Jimmy's show last night, where she showed up looking holiday ready in a gorgeous green top and coat.
During the interview, Jimmy asked her about the origins of her stage name, to which he failed to keep a straight face as she spoke with her trademark "zing" sounds. “You know what, my sister name is Hennessy, so everybody used to call me Bacardi,” she explained. “Then it was my Instagram name, Bacardi, Bacardi B, but for some reason, my Instagram kept getting deleted, and you know what I think it was Bacardi [the alcohol company] that had something to do with it. So I just changed it to Cardi B.”
He kept it together for a little while longer, but then lost it when he asked her about her holiday plans, and why she vowed in a tweet recently to not give adults Christmas gifts. “Because you wanna know something, everybody that I know got kids and that’s just a lot of kids,” she said. “And I got God kids out of nowhere — once you start making money everybody want you to be their kids’ godmother.”
After he burst into laughter, Jimmy asked about her engagement to fellow rapper Offset and the $500,000 ring he got her. “But you did get a beautiful gift. You got a wedding ring from your fiancé — Offset,” he said.
“Brrrrr!!” she said as she showed off her gorgeous 8-carat diamond ring. “Brrrr is right! It looks gorgeous,” he said. “Did you have any idea he was going to do it?”
She said that she didn't know in advance, saying "He was always like, ‘I’m going to marry you, I’m going to marry you.’ I know he was going to give me a very expensive gift because he wasn’t there for my birthday, but I thought he was going to give me like a watch or something he just went out his way.”
