Cardi B. Discusses Twerking Pregnant At Coachella With Ellen: ‘I Was Just Trying To Show The World How I Got Pregnant In The First Place’ [VIDEO]
It's Cardi B.'s world, and we're just living in it. Her debut album Invasion of Privacy is currently the No. 1 album in the country. She made history as the first ever co-host of The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, and her pregnancy has been a trending topic since her big reveal on Saturday Night Live a few weeks ago.
Fresh off the heels of her Coachella performance, Cardi stopped by Ellen, to discuss everything from baby names, pregnancy cravings, and her past occupation as a stripper.
When the two talked about her now-infamous twerking at weekend one of Coachella -- specifically during her YG-assisted song "She Bad," Ellen jokingly said, "It looks like you're about to give birth right there." Cardi humorously revealed it was her way of preparing for labor and delivery in a few months: "Well, you know they say the more you move the easier it will come out... I was just trying to show the world how I got pregnant in the first place." She then pointed to a still shot on the big screen and said, "Like that!"
Later on in the interview, she revealed that Offset has picked out the name of their child; but she wouldn't announce it, stating that she would rather he do it. While neither she or Offset have revealed the gender of the baby, during an interview with HOT 97's Ebro In The Morning she accidentally referred to the baby as "she," leaving fans to believe that the couple is welcoming a girl this summer.
Since the release of her debut album, Cardi has shattered Taylor Swift's first-week streaming record on Apple Music, and she's made history as the fifth female rapper to have a No. 1 album on Billboard. Cardi will perform again this weekend at Coachella, and she's expected to perform at Broccoli Fest on April 28.
