In August 2020, Cardi B broke the internet with her song "WAP" featuring Megan Thee Stallion. Since then, it's been at the center of culture commentary and the world of music.

The video, which is explicit, has upset hundreds of conservative Americans on the internet, including Candace Owens, who had a heated exchange with Cardi on Twitter this week stemming from the performance among accusations of cheating spouses and doctored tweets. Owens even threatened to sue Cardi for defamation.


Following the televised debut of "WAP" at the 63rd Annual Grammys on Sunday night, many of the same people that expressed outrage about the song lyrics and video also complained about the sexuality within Cardi and Megan's performance.

Both musicians have been accused of "ruining American society" and "glorifying prostitution" due to the raunchy choreography.

I personally think it's for shock value and entertainment purposes, not an agenda to "ruin American society." Many things could be the cause for "ruined American society," such as racism and the political and social climate we're still trying to pick the pieces up from under a former administration.

But I digress.

Megan Thee Stallion and Cardi B's Grammys performance wasn't trashy. It was an empowering ode to female sexuality conversations.indy100.com

With an extensive amount of posts and videos being made about whop even after the initial release, Cardi B has been taking the time to enjoy herself as she enters the heated debates with people who want her to be de-platformed for the performance.

One video, in particular, that was highlighted was of a woman crying during a reaction to the performance. Both Cardi and Megan didn't shy away from calling out a YouTuber for seemingly overreacting to the content.

"Really? Over WAP?" asked Cardi in her Instagram caption. The video shows a woman seemingly anguished over the Grammys performance, speaking to the point that the content is inappropriate for children to watch.

"She keep wiping her eyes and it ain't even though damn tears," Megan said in the comments.

Can tech help female entrepreneurs break the bias?

Women founders continue to come up against common challenges and biases - solving this problem is bigger than supporting women, it’s about supporting the national economy.

Women founders continue to come up against common challenges and biases

Starting a business may have historically been perceived as a man’s game, but this couldn’t be further from reality. Research shows women are actually more likely than men to actively choose to start their own business – often motivated by the desire to be their own boss or to have a better work-life balance and spend more time with their family.

How am I doing as a parent?

Evaluating yourself is hard. It's even harder when attempting to assess your parenting because there's no set guide and nothing to count, measure, or quantify.

How am I doing as a parent?

Some time ago, I met my lovely friend for a drink, straight off the train from London. She told me about a very intense performance review she had at work recently, which, although scary, was incredibly useful; it gave her a general sense of how she was doing and areas to work on.

And it struck me we don't get this feedback as parents. Am I doing a good job? I have no idea.
