Cardi B Tweeted About Wanting to Buy a $88K Purse and People Shamed Her

Cardi B is the kind of star who loves to tweet out her thoughts, stream of conscious. It’s part of what makes following her so much fun, and part of why she’s constantly involved in ongoing, public conversations about her own life. Well, one such conversation was triggered today by her casually tweeting about a designer bag she’d like to buy, even though it costs close to $90,000.

Now, in a time when a lot of people are struggling financially, it’s easy to see how this tweet could rub people the wrong way. But it’s also clear that Cardi isn’t really the correct target for ire when it comes to how wealthy people behave. She’s given back over $2 million of her own money to those who are in need, as she points out during her clapback to the backlash over the initial tweet.

“Donate 88k to a charity for people that need help right now….u know the people that buy your music to perhaps get thru these shitty time’s…idk jus sayin….,” one Twitter user responded. She pointed out in response to his comment that she’s done quite a bit already.

Under Armour Teams Up With Steph Curry With Launch of Curry Brand

Stephen Curry is entering a new phase in his endorsement career.

The Golden State Warriors superstar is getting his own imprint with longtime sponsor Under Armour, called Curry Brand, it was announced on Monday.

The new line was set to launch this week, which Under Armour sees as an ideal time weeks ahead of the Christmas holiday and the scheduled tip-off of the 2020-21 campaign, set for Dec. 22.

“We wanted to make sure we did this as close as possible to the NBA season finally launching … and the fact that we’re launching in between Black Friday and the holidays we think is very opportune,” Under Armour CEO Patrik Frisk told CNBC.

The line will launch with basketball and golf apparel, as well as the customary basketball sneakers, the report said, and will eventually add women’s gear and running shoes.

Curry, 32, signed with Under Armour back in 2013, and remains its most notable endorser. Sixers center Joel Embiid signed on earlier in 2020.

The move comes as Under Armour aims to reverse recent losses in popularity among younger consumers in particular, the report said. The brand’s products have seen steep discounts at department stores and are often associated with performance rather than style, according to the article.

Curry was expected to return to the Warriors lineup after missing most of last season with a wrist injury. The Davidson product, drafted seventh overall by the Dubs back in 2009, has won three NBA titles and two MVPs, and is presently third for most 3-pointers made in league history.


Travis Scott Reportedly Made About $20M Working With McDonald’s

It’s no secret that Travis Scott’s brand partnership with McDonald’s was a highly lucrative success. Not only did individual stores across the country actually run out of ingredients for Quarter Pounders, prompting the company to change the ordering process, but the sales also helped lift the fast-food giant out of a pandemic induced slump.

Travis’s somewhat bizarre merch collections also sold-out in short order, driven by the popularity of one of the biggest entertainers in music today. Now, thanks to Forbes, we have a better idea of how much the deal made for Travis, along with similar ones with other brands.

As part of Forbes extended 30 Under 30 coverage, a feature focusing on Travis and his successful ventures turned up some eye-popping numbers for each of his deals with McDonald’s, Nike, and Sony PlayStation. According to Forbes, McDonald’s paid Travis at least $5 million for the initial endorsement deal, while the Houston rapper reportedly grossed $15 million from the merch sales. Travis’s partnership with Nike is estimated to bring him around $10 million a year, while the article notes that the increased cultural cachet is incalculable and invaluable in netting new partnerships.

Cardi reflected on her holiday weekend, writing on Twitter, “12kids and 25 adults over the holidays.It was lit !!” Following that tweet, there were responses critical of Cardi’s decision to have a large celebration, like one that read, “i hope it was worth it for you and those 25 adults and 12 kids. i truly hope it was because i can promise you it’s not worth it to everyone else who is affected by your poor choices aka the healthcare workers who you will run to when you’re sick.”

Cardi insisted, however, that she was abundantly cautious in preparing for the event, saying that she “spent soo much money” on coronavirus tests for everybody in attendance. She tweeted, “Sorry my bad wasn’t trying to make nobody feel bad.I just had my family in my home for the first time and it felt so good & uplifted me .I spent soo much money getting every1 tested but it felt worth it.I wasnt trying to offend no1.” She later added that regular testing has become a part of her routine, writing, “ME specially and everyone that works around me get tested literally 4 times a week.Im In the middle of work and Everytime we clock in we MUST GET TESTED !” She also wrote, “People be trying tooo hard to be offended.I wonder how they survive the real world [laughing emoji].”
