Grammy winner Cardi B clapped back at a Twitter troll accusing her of ‘performing in
someone’s backyard’ during Miami Art Basel last Friday by showing off her sizable
paycheck from WP Touring Inc.
‘I got [paid] 1 million dollars to perform at this elite bankers event private event for
400 people and only for 35 minutes,’ the Bronx-born 30-year-old – who boasts 243.4M
social media followers – wrote in a since-deleted tweeted Saturday.
‘Think about that when you type about this Grammy winner.’
Indeed, Cardi (born Belcalis Almánzar) was paid upfront on November 3 for the
exclusive gig for Chase Sapphire Reserve credit cardmembers at the SLS South Beach
in Miami Beach.
The half-Dominican, half-Trinidadian star certainly turned heads wearing a custom
naked catsuit designed by Jean Paul Gaultier as she rapped her songs Hot S*** and
Cardi surprised the ‘Chase Sapphire Lounge’ audience by bringing Grammy nominee
GloRilla onstage to perform their new song, Tomorrow 2.

‘Last night performing for the best bank in America! Performing is my passion…
#lovewhatyoudo,’ the Reebok collaborator tweeted on Saturday.
Cardi previously bragged about being paid over $1M per show for her debut US tour
in the summer of 2019: ‘Mind you it was only 7 shows… Let’s not talk about numbers.’
However, the Shake It hitmaker has been delaying the release of her follow-up to her
2018 debut studio album, Invasion of Privacy.
‘I have no choice, I have to put it out,’ Cardi said on The Breakfast Club last Thursday.
