The 2018 MTV VMA's were kicked off by none other than Cardi B, who, despite not performing managed to still entertain the audiences by pulling the ultimate prank...
It was confirmed Cardi B would be opening the 2018 MTV VMA's which were hosted in her home town of New York, and although people were confused as news emerged the rapper wouldn't be performing, she kicked off the award ceremony in true Cardi style, by trolling us all with a fake baby.
The 'Like It' singer welcomed the audience holding a blanket, shouting:
"What's poppin' everybody, welcome to New York, I am the Empress hehehehewww"
"I got a little surprise for you' as she unravels the bundle to reveal a moon man award.
Also, you've got to check out her rapper hubby, Offset, definitely not finding laughing at any of her jokes. Awks.
Maybe he actually thought Kulture lay beneath the blanket and was about to be revealed on national television. Maybe he just doesn't find her funny.
I think Cardi B and Offset not together anymore . She didn’t wear her ring , they didn’t sit together and didn’t walk the carpet together. He didn’t even clap for her after she got her award 🤔 #VMA pic.twitter.com/VuSDbll7uX— ❤Follow your dreams❤ (@GoldenMind93) August 21, 2018
Cardi scooped up the award for 'Best New Artist', which many on Twitter are slating as she's been one of the biggest mainstream artists of the year (she was also strangely nominated for 'Artist Of The Year') but we didn't see her complaining, she was having an absolute ball!
