Cardi B, 27, an outspoken Trump critic, who endorsed Senator Bernie Sanders for the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination last year, announced that she was considering becoming a politician.
The “Bodak Yellow” rapper, who was born Belcalis Almánzar, tweeted earlier this month: “I do feel like if I go back to school and focus up I can be part of Congress.I deadass have sooo much ideas that make sense.I just need a couple of years of school and I can shake the table.”
In her Grammys tune on Sunday, Keys sang to loud applause from the audience: “It’s just too many lies/Too much hate, too much spin/It’s when good people do nothing, that the bad guys win.”
