Movie Star Bardi
From small-screen to silver screen, Cardi B is moving up once again. According to a new report, you’ll be able to catch Cardi “moonwalkin’ through your” local movie theater pretty soon!
Apparently the rapper-turned-reality-star-turned-Billboard-record-slayer has a scored a movie deal and will begin filming later this year. While the details of the project remain unknown, it looks like Cardi is about to follow in the footsteps of other artist-turned-movie-stars, like Beyoncé, J-Lo, and Whitney Houston.
After breaking several Billboard records, Cardi is reaching for some glory at the box office. According to TMZ, the “Bartier Cardi” rapper reportedly signed her first movie deal.
While there’s no information on the name or concept of the production, sources say that filming will begin fairly soon. The New York native is scheduled to hit the set in March of this year.
The insider also offered insight into how much the star would be making for her role on the big screen. Since filming is slated to begin so soon, Cardi had to cancel other gigs where she would have made anywhere between $100k and $200k. So, her paycheck for the production has to at least match that.
The “Lick” rapper has yet to confirm (or deny) the news herself. However, she has previously hinted to big “plans” for 2018.
Following the “bad controversy” brought on by her fiancé Offset’s indiscretions, Cardi hit social media to… chat. The star talked about the unflattering headlines surrounding her relationship while venting that the “crazy s**t” was nothing more than a distraction.
“I really hate when s**t like this happens because it takes away from my work. It takes away from my plans,” Cardi said in an Instagram Live video.
“The focus is not on my s**t,” she added. “The gossip always over-beats.”
