Cardi B's been takin' the world by storm...but a lot have been wondering who she is, where she came from, and is that her real name?
We have the answer to that one...thanks to the Wendy Williams Show:
The singer revealed that it stems from alcohol. “My sister’s name is Hennessy, so everybody used to be like ‘Bacardi’ to me,” she said. “Then I shortened it to Cardi B. The ‘B’ stands for whatever, depending on the day…beautiful or bully,” she said, referring to the iconic rum and spirits brand. “No one calls me Belcalis except for my family, my mother and my daddy,” she added.
I probably won't call her Belcalis either...mainly cause I don't know how to pronounce it!
