CAROLE BASKIN SPEAKS ON 'WAP' VIDEO
In other news, although most people have a lot to say about Cardi and Meg's “WAP” video, surprisingly, Tiger King star Carole Baskin is speaking out about it as well. Baskin told TMZ that she has an issue with the video over their use of big cats. She said that the worst part of Cardi B’s new music video is the way it glamorizes rich folk keeping tigers as pets, and she thinks it makes “every ignorant follower want to imitate by doing the same.”
Carole said that although she is glad that the cats weren't likely in the room with Cardi and Megan, posing with wild animals in front of green screens and using them in productions is unnatural and confusing.
CARDI B SPEAKS ON WORKING WITH MEGAN THEE STALLION
Meanwhile, in a radio interview, Cardi opened up about working with Megan Thee Stallion. Before recording the track, the two hung out one-on-one in Los Angeles. She said, “It was just such a good vibe. When I heard the song, I thought she only put one verse…I didn't even know she put a verse almost at the end of it. … It was just too fire.”
In another radio interview, Cardi spoke on shooting the video for “WAP,” with Megan, saying, “It was just so great, so easy. We came up with a big list of a lot of girls we wanted on the music video. But you know what I'm saying—the budget. … This video cost a lot of money, especially because of the coronavirus shit. It cost us an extra like almost $100,000 to get everybody motherf*cking tested. So it was a very expensive video.”
She also briefly addressed Megan's shooting incident involving rapper Tory Lanez, saying, “I texted Meg something but I didn't want to call her because I didn't know where she's at mentally. Sometimes when I go through some hard sh*t or something crazy in the media it's like when people ask if you're okay or when they call you and you get more and more emotional, you want to cry. I was like, you know what. Let me give her a minute. It's a lot. Dealing with that media stuff, it's a lot.”
