Cardi B didn’t let a little thing like a wardrobe malfunction in front of thousands of fans stop her show. The rapper was performing her set at Bonnaroo over the weekend and was forced to leave the stage when her jumpsuit ripped but returned minutes later and finished the set while wearing a bathrobe. We bow down.
Cardi was wearing a multi-colored rainbow jumpsuit during her performance at the Tennessee music fest on Sunday night when a clothing mishap caused her to leave the stage 10 minutes into her set. Splitting the jumpsuit up the back, Cardi experienced every performer’s nightmare (and really anyone who wears clothes in public), but quickly brushed it off and returned in a white robe, giving fans the easiest and most comfortable Halloween costume idea for 2019.
“We gonna keep it moving, baby,” Cardi told the audience. “We gonna keep it sexy. I don’t know how in this (expletive) robe, but we gonna do it!” Cardi ended up working the new look into her performance, playful showing off her flesh-coloured bra, which we’re going to assume also acted as a bit of ventilation because dancing in terrycloth is probably very uncomfortable. That’s why she’s a pro.
Fans celebrated the rapper’s perseverance and thanked Cardi for continuing the set that many had camped out to watch.
i have to say…. seeing cardi b rip her body suit from twerking, and come back on stage with a bath robe and finish the set stronger than she began it completely changed my life for the better. that’s the inspiration i need

Sunday’s Bonnaroo performance was Cardi’s latest after the rapper was forced to cancel a handful of shows following complications from plastic surgery. The musician underwent liposuction earlier this year after giving birth to her first child, daughter Kulture, in 2018. Cardi was forced to cancel a number of performances, with Cardi’s rep telling E! News, “Cardi was overzealous in getting back to work, she didn’t take the time necessary to fully recover from her surgery and had the swollen feet to prove it. Her strenuous schedule has taken a toll on her body and she has been given strict doctors orders to pull out of the rest of her performances in May.”
In addition to her busy concert schedule, Cardi has also been shooting the upcoming film Hustlers along with Jennifer Lopez, Constance Wu, Julia Stiles and Lili Reinhart.
Raising a baby, releasing new music, performing for thousands of people, filming a movie, and recovering from surgery? On second thought, ripping a catsuit and performing in a bathrobe probably feels like a vacation for Cardi B.
