Cardi B Jokes About Why She Didn’t Perform “WAP” At Biden’s Inauguration! The Historic Inauguration of US President Joe Biden and Vice President Khamala Harris went down in a colorful event two days ago (Wednesday January 20). Even though former President Trump gave the event a wide birth, choosing to stay away in totality, three former Presidents, Bill Clinton, George W. Bush and Barack Obama graced the occasion.
The event saw live performances from popular musicians Lady Gaga, Jennifer Lopez, Katy Perry, John Legend among others. Lady Gaga sang the National Anthem while Jennifer Lopez performed a medley of America the Beautiful and This Land Is Your Land. Cardi B’s presence at the event would definitely have been historic, the ultimate culture reset maybe.
Just a day after the Inauguration, Cardi took to social media joking on how her appointment with her dentist collided with the Inauguration. The dentist appointment she said curtailed her plans to attend the ceremony and perform her and Megan Thee Stallion’s X-rated collab, “WAP”.
“Ugh I was supposed to perform wap at the inauguration today but I had a dentist appointment ….maybe next time” she wrote on twitter.
Cardi B, always known to be full of humor, was totally joking in her tweet too. Her fans got the humor and immediately swung into action replying with the right memes including the instant classic image of Senator Bernie Sanders in his Vermont winter tuxedo.
Despite her absence from the event, the artist has been at the forefront, speaking her mind out on matters politics, voting, and racial justice. Last summer, Cardi B got the chance to interview Joe Biden – the then candidate about his plans for the country bringing his attention to pressing issues such as health care and education.
“It’s important to have free [health care], because look what is happening right now,” she told Biden in their virtual sit-down for ELLE. “Of course, I think we need free college. And I want Black people to stop getting killed and no justice for it. I’m tired of it.”
Biden answered in part of his response, “Sometimes the truth is hard. But right now, we’re in a position where we have an opportunity to make so much progress. The American public has had the blinders taken off.”
