How long are they going to keep lying to themselves? Their family is beautiful but we know that Offset loves to chase tail.

Cardi B used to drug and rob men... She is a self admitted Blood Gang Member... She also called black women roaches! Essence put her on the cover of their magazine. WE ARE OFFICIALLY DONE!

@11:15. No Essence magazine was done when they put Sean combs and Kim Porter on the cover back in the early 2000s. By then, everyone knew he was no good. Hubby may like to chase tail but at least there have been no rumors about him kicking it with minors or ripping off his artists.

Is it me or does Wave look almost identical to Nicki's son? The resemblance is crazy.

@11:28 Cardi is that you? You gave it away when you referred to Offset as hubby.

Essence magazine, which is a magazine for black women, really put a black man with his non black wife on the cover. SMH

Essence must be embracing what they consider the new normal for the Black family structure, which is a man who makes a bunch of OOW kids and a woman who willingly accepts it. They haven't even been married five years and in that time he's been caught DMing exes, is constantly blasted by his trove of baby mamas and has a rep for being an all around shitty husband. Meanwhile, Cardi can't stop fighting other women, starts online beef once a day and continues to put out the most degrading music possible.

The fact that they're being paraded as some sort of positive role model for relationships is yet another attempt by the industry to dumb us down and show us how low we should set the bar for ourselves. Essence gets a complete F.U. from me just off of that alone.

Cardi's kids are adorable and it's nice to see them on the cover with their family. Great job Essence. And Cardi is of African descent so kill it. She's a descendant of Caribbean slaves instead of American slaves.

@ms mac I was just thinking the same thing; Essence magazine is featuring the 'new normal' for black families. I have the previous Essence issue with Niecy Nash and her "wife", topless lol. I almost fell OUT when I saw that cover! Lmao! I'm surprised that there was no public backlash from black ppl! Cause lawd knows black ppl are one of the most homophobic groups out there smdh.

With that said, I actually like the cover; but I do understand the implications of having someone like Cardi and Offset on a black family oriented magazine cover. I think Offset is trying to bring Cardi into the black American fold; cause the internet hasn't forgotten about her colorist comments towards dark skinned black women (likened them to roaches smdh), and her general attitude towards black women. So, I think this cover - as well as all of her recent features with black women - is a branding tactic. I'm not sure I buy it, but only time will tell if Cardi and Offset turn their attitudes and behaviors around.

@1:48 PM... What about Cardi B drugging and robbing men? Should we kill that too?

Nice cover and beautiful family ALL their kids look just like daddy. I respect cardi 4 including all the kids it's sad 2 me when women mistreat a mans kids....from some of these comments it's apparent some of ya'll are projecting. If you even know who your daddy is don't be mad that he abandoned you or that you were mistreated by the other lady. And you know what?? It's okay to get mad..just move on and maybe get some therapy and just break the generational curses.
Negative Nancy's for real...I'm not responding to miserable folks either.argue with your mammies...( she probably didn't raise u either? And pappies...

Mr. and Mrs. Hoodrat.

The kids are beautiful though.

COOLKID said...

@4:14 you're not arguing because you can't articulate yourself!

@4:14 Whatever you say Cardi. You the one sounding mad about accepting some other man's kids so who's projecting? If you like being a step momma and your kids being half siblings to a bunch of your man's other kids that's your life so love it and shuttup.

Joseph accepted Mary and her son Jesus. Blended families are as old as the Bible.

@8:44 nope that bad boy is almost $10 at the supermarket.

@12:40 not Cardi (nor a stan) but I remember the initial outrage and what was going on with the other couple I that was on the cover. I'm not saying Cardi & Offset are better or worse...my point is there are so many other couples that are an example of Black love IF that's part of Essence magazine's brand these days.

Many,many rich ,famous people, cheapen the expensive clothes that they wear,,, You can dress her in a $1,500,, blouse and the blouse looks like it cost $49.99, from the Department store at the Mall...Same with Men, some men just cheapen clothing, because underneath it all ,they are also TRASH! LOL

No matter how much money some people have. No matter how expensive their clothes. They can't cover their natural look of TRASH! It can be seen in/on you skin condition, your teeth, your smile, the wrinkles surrounding your eyes and mouth, your scent. I don't mean old age. I mean the little wrinkles around your mouth, can show stress and a trashy life...Some/most famous people are trash. Its their vibe , their aura, that feeling of cold, doom and gloom when they enter a room...The way they pronounce words, the way they write a note or a check. Your level of comprehension. I'm not going to say education takes the trash out of you , its how you can tell if a person utilized that education. Can you comprehend ,whilst reading? Most trash can't, but some who can ,are also trash....If you don't understand these two posts, you are most likely trash...You can literally smell/sense, a trashy persons trash. We all have heard of Trailer Parc types. You can see ,smell and hear, their trashy vibe.. Lots, lots ,of famous or newly rich people are this way...One thing though, you rarely find trash in, Old Money...
