Cardi B and Offset touch tongues on the Grammys red carpet

She is one of the biggest stars in music.

So it’s only natural that Cardi B has one of the biggest entourages at The Grammys.

The 26-year-old rapper was accompanied by on/off husband Offset and four other handlers on the red carpet of the 2019 Grammy Awards on Sunday, held at the Los Angeles Staples Center.

The rapper – whose real name is Belcalis Marlenis Almánzar- looked absolutely stunning in the eccentric oyster and pearls vintage outfit by French designer Thierry Mugler from 1995. 

The mother-of-one stunned in a bustier bodysuit, ruffled fanned-out black skirt with pink satin lining.

Cardi completed the look with layered pearl necklaces and matching beehive headpiece. 

Pink and black smokey eye makeup dovetailed perfectly with the outfit’s color palette.

Joining the Bodak Yellow hitmaker on the red carpet was her estranged husband, Offset.

The Migos star and Cardi put on an unfiltered display of affection, with both parents of six-month-old baby girl Kulture poking out their tongues and touching the tips together.

In a recent Harper’s Bazaar interview, the Bronx-born beauty spoke of her resistance to healing her broken marriage following cheating allegations against Offset. 

‘I decided on my own,’ she said of leaving her husband. ‘Nobody makes my decisions about my life but me. I didn’t want to go to marriage counseling. He suggested it, but it’s like, ‘I don’t want to go.’ There’s no counselor or nothing that could make me change my mind.’

However, the red carpet display and the fact the pair were seen together during the Big Game Weekend Party in Atlanta, Georgia last weekend suggests a reconciliation may be on the cards.

Lady Gaga, Miley Cyrus, Travis Scott, Diana Ross, and Cardi B are among a crowded field of performers scheduled for Sunday night’s Alicia Keys-hosted Grammy Awards. 

Gaga will perform with Mark Ronson, with whom she collaborated on the song Shallow, while her A Star Is Born co-star Bradley Cooper represents the BAFTA Awards which also take place that same night. 

Gaga tied for the third-highest number of nominations this year with five, for record of the year, song of the year, best pop duo or performance, and best song written for visual media for Shallow; and best pop performance for Joanne (Where Do You Think You’re Goin’?).

She’s previously won six Grammy awards, including two in 2010, three in 2011, and one in 2015 for her collaboration album with Tony Bennett.

Other performers include  Beyonce’s proteges Chloe x Halle, fresh from their performance of America The Beautiful at the Super Bowl, Dua Lipa, St. Vincent, Andra Day, Camila Cabello, Dan + Shay, Post Malone with the Red Hot Chilli Peppers, Shawn Mendes, J Balvin, Arturo Sandoval, Young Thug, Janelle Monáe, Kacey Musgraves, H.E.R., Brandi Carlile, Maren Morris, Little Big Town, Ricky Martin, Fantasia and gospel great Yolanda Adams.

Dua Lipa will be making her Grammy stage debut on the show, where she’ll be joined by St. Vincent for a special performance, while Adams will sing alongside Fantasia and Day in a tribute to late Queen of Soul Aretha Franklin. 

However one star who will not be on stage – either performing or accepting an award, is Ariana Grande.

This is despite Ariana featuring prominently on billboards promoting the event throughout Los Angeles, and being nominated for both Best Pop Vocal Performance (for God Is a Woman) and Best Pop Vocal Album (for 2018’s Sweetener).

The move comes due to a disagreement with Grammy producers over which songs she would perform, according to sources close to the situation.

An insider tells Variety that Grande felt ‘insulted’ after producers initially refused to allow her to perform 7 Rings,’ the latest single from her forthcoming album Thank U, Next. 

A compromise was reached whereby 7 Rings would be part of a medley, but Grande pulled out after producers insisted that the second song be of their choosing. 

The source added that such stipulations were not imposed on other performers at the show. 

The 61st annual Grammy Awards are produced by AEG Ehrlich Ventures for the Recording Academy. Ken Ehrlich is executive producer, Ben Winston is executive producer, Louis J. Horvitz is director, Chantel Sausedo is the producer, and David Wild and Ehrlich are the writers.
