In true Cardi B fashion, the ‘Bodak Yellow’ rapper leaves Jimmy Fallon speechless on The Tonight show. After congratulating on her success, Fallon asked her how she got her name.
“My name come from…You know what? My sister name is Hennessy. You know what I’m saying? My sister name is Hennessy, right? So, everybody used to call be Bacardi. So, I always call myself Bacardi, right?” the rapper, whose birth name is Belcalis Almanzar, said. “Then it was my Instagram name—like Bacardi, Bacardi B—but for some reason, my Instagram kept getting deleted; I think it was Bacardi that had something to do with it so I just shortened it to Cardi B.”
When asked why she isn’t buying Christmas gifts for adults this year Cardi said, “Once you start making money, everybody wants you to be their kids’ godmother!” Later, she showed him her engagement ring, warning him, “Don’t get too close because I didn’t put no lotion on my hand!”
