Remember the Grammy fiasco of 2009? Where Kanye West took the mike from Taylor Swift and nonchalantly announced that Beyonce deserved that award. Well, Cardi B is stuck in a similar situation. This time instead of a famous star, Travis Scott’s fans have been trolling Cardi B. She won the Best Rap Album at the 2019 Grammy Awards for her debut album, Invasion of Privacy. Many fans think that Travis Scott’s ‘Astroworld’ should have won the award.
Why the fans are complaining so late?
If you remember, Grammys happened in February, so why the fans are going crazy now? Recently, Netflix released a documentary on Scott called, ‘Look Mom I Can Fly.’ There is a scene where the rapper is sitting disappointed at the Grammy backstage when the award winner was announced. ‘Sicko Mode’ rapper seems miffed at his snub at the award show.
Fans took the scene as a reference that Scott deserved the award more than Cardi B. They have been posting slurs on Twitter and Instagram. One fan wrote that Travis got robbed of the Grammy Astroworld and it was easily AOTY. Another user turned savage and wrote that the fact that Cardi won over Astroworld is literally a crime.
Cardi hits back at trollers
Cardi B doesn’t take anybody’s shit. Right after the Twitter outrage against her, she tried to justify her win. She wrote a heartfelt description of her journey and why she deserved the award. She wrote that she struggled personally to record the songs. She was pregnant at that time and had no manager to look after her career. Her husband Offset has to go to many artists to get a feature. Many artists rejected her and some even charged money in six figures. Cardi B also wrote that she is thankful to the artists who collaborated with her. On a more positive note, she said that her songs went platinum, and they are still on the charts.
She directly replied to some of the Travis fans. For one she wrote, “Ya some grown-ass men talking about dragging Cardi cause I won an award for a bomb ass album.” Her album went on to win a double-platinum certificate. Later, she also clarified that she has nothing against Travis and reminded people that she also promoted ‘Astroworld.’
