Cardi B Is a Work of Art in the Video for 'Money'

Offset who? Cardi B is out here making money.

On this Friday before Christmas, Cardi dropped the video for her latest single “Money,” a luxurious montage of Cardi enjoying all the finer things in life. She doesn’t just make money; she is money.

She’s a priceless work of art contained in a glass case.

She’s not only the stripper, but also the one throwing the dollar bills, in what I must note is THE largest hat I’ve ever seen in my life.

And in a nod to paintings of Madonna nursing Jesus, she does it all while breastfeeding. Casual!

So are we just going to all pretend that the only way women make money is by being half naked or strippers or something? Like, I’m not trying to be sex negative or anti-sex worker, but why not show herself as a boss in a boardroom making paper that way? Why does it always have to be titties and ass? This may be a female rapper, but it’s still for the male gaze. Can the writers at Jezebel not consider this,or how images and videos like this affect women like myself in male-dominated field where the top accolades continue to go to cis-gendered straight men? There is nothing wrong with a women enjoying and celebrating her body, but made for women this video is not. I’m so tired of this shit. Let’s make more powerful and thought provoking art - or is that shit only for the mens a la Childish Gambino?

Also....Bad Bunny fucking sucks. Stop trying to make him happen, Jezebel staff writers.
