Okuuuuurrrr Cardi B just owned the opening of the MTV Video Music Awards!

It was the first public appearance for the new mum since giving birth to her little bundle of joy back in July and we have to say she looked damn fine.

The rapper appeared on stage donning a red gown that made her look exactly like the Spanish dancing emoji along with a new, sleek pixie haircut. But as she turned around to face the crowd it was the “accessory” in her arms that had people in the audience reeling!

Cardi held what appeared to be little baby Kulture wrapped up in a fluffy pink blanket and she clutched the bub so close to her chest that it looked like she was breastfeeding. A working mum’s gotta do what she’s gotta do!

“What’s popping everybody welcome to New York,” she exclaimed. “I am the empress!”

The star continued to ramble on in her typical Cardi way before saying, “I’ve got a surprise for ya, know what I’m saying.”


Everyone thought that the ‘I Like It’ rapper was about to debut baby Kulture to the world right there, live on stage, but sadly it was all a little bit of a hoax!

As Cardi unwrapped the blanket she didn’t reveal a little bub but the highly coveted moon man award! Don’t mess with us like that Cardi!

Fans are yet to catch a glimpse of the newborn since Cardi gave birth to her and hubby Offset’s first child together. But hopefully she’ll take a page out of the Kardashian’s book and start posting pics of the bub sometime soon!
