Cardi B apologised for her 'Real Housewives of the Civil Rights Movement' skit's The Dredge

Your RDA of celeb dirt.

EVERY WEEKDAY MORNING, rounds up the best of the day’s celebrity dirt from the top to the very bottom.

2018 MTV Video Music Awards - Arrivals - New York

If there’s one celebrity we could envision taking part in any ‘Real Housewives of ____’ series, it’s Cardi B. 

However, the 25-year-old rapper made a pretty poor decision when she got involved in a parody of the series called Real Housewives of the Civil Rights Movement.

Yesterday, TMZ released a clip of the skit which features Cardi B as MLK’s wife, Coretta Scott King. To make things more awkward, the clip was released on the 55th anniversary of Martin Luther King’s ‘I Have a Dream’ speech. 

Cardi B’s character says a few lines, including “All these hussies wanna sleep with my husband, well it’s alright ’cause I know he marches home to me.” 

Martin Luther and Coretta Scott King’s eldest son, Martin Luther King III, eventually saw the sketch and called it “beyond offensive”. Dr. King’s daughter Bernice also saw it, and called it “repulsive.” 

However, everything worked out alright in the end, because Cardi made a personal apology to the family, which Bernice later tweeted about.

Sia said that meeting Donald Trump on the set of SNL gave her ‘crazy diarrhoea’. 

Although the meeting was back in 2015, before Trump was president, Sia remembers it very well. The singer claimed that Trump wanted to take a photograph with her, to which she replied:

Actually, do you mind if we don’t? I have a lot of queer and Mexican fans and I don’t want them to think that I support your views. 

Trump said that this was “No problem.” She thanked him for understanding, although she wasn’t quite sure that he actually understood.

It was if he viewed me as protecting my brand. And then I went into my dressing room and had crazy diarrhoea. 

As you do. (NME)

2018 MTV Video Music Awards - Show - New York

Ariana Grande restarted her performance of a song for a fan who wasn’t ready to record it yet. 

At this point, it’s hard to say that there’s any pop-star out there who cares as deeply for their fans as Ariana Grande does. Who else could pull off what she did in Manchester last year? 

The singer’s generous actions aren’t just limited to times of tragedy, either. During an intimate show called the ‘Sweetener Sessions’, for 1600 of her biggest fans, Ariana Grande was 15 seconds into her song ‘Raindrops’, when a fan accidentally blurted out “Wait, start again! I wasn’t recording!” 

Ariana Grande being Ariana Grande, paused her singing and said “Did you just say start again? Someone said “Start again, I wasn’t recording!” Are you ready now? I’m sorry. That was funny. OK, are you ready?”
