Cardi B became a fan favorite on the back of her raw, raunchy public persona and willingness to be completely real and honest, the traits she brought to the Grammys stage tonight - both in her villainous performance and her emotional acceptance speech for Best Rap Album for her debut, Invasion Of Privacy. "Maybe I need to start smoking weed".

She went onto thank daughter Kulture and touched on her fears surrounding giving birth shortly after dropping the album. "I just want to say thank you to everybody that was involved". It's because, you know, when I found out I was pregnant, my album was not complete, like three songs that I was for sure having. "We're gonna have this baby, you're gonna do this album'". On top of that, Cardi is featured on Maroon 5's "Girls Like You", which was up for Best Pop Duo/Group Performance but lost to Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga's "Shallow", written and recorded for A Star Is Born. As the award was announced, Cardi's face said it all.
