Cardi B learns of her Grammy noms… while leaving court

“I’m tellin’ you my life is a movie,” she wrote on Instagram.

There are boring, regular ways to find out if you’ve been nominated for a Grammy Award. And then there’s the Cardi B way.

The Bronx rapper found out about her five Grammy nominations only as she was being escorted out of court on Friday. She had appeared on charges of assault and reckless endangerment related to a fight that happened at a strip club in August. As she bumbled through a throng of paparazzi, one photographer blurted out: “How does it feel to be nominated for that Grammy?”

To which Bardi replied, “I am? How many nominations?” You can watch the clip below.


Cardi might just be playing it cool. With five nods, she is among the most-nominated artists at the 2019 Grammy Awards. Hers are for Record of the Year (“I Like It”), Album of the Year (Invasion of Privacy), Best Pop Duo/Group Performance (“Girls Like You”), Best Rap Performance (“Be Careful”) and Best Rap Album (Invasion of Privacy).
