Why did Cardi B take her wig off in Norway?

Rap superstar Cardi B ripped off her wig mid-show during her slot at the Starvern Festival in Norway. She was left performing in just her wig-cap.

Cardi B always keeps it real for her fans and has been known to take off her wig mid performance and throw it into the crowd. This happened in 2019 at the Wireless festival – and fans loved it.

At the Norway festival she was wearing a full, black, mesh bodysuit with large sequins sewn all over the fabric.

Fans get real about Cardi’s ‘no wig’ moment

Cardi B always keeps her fans on their toes, whether through her incredible live performances, new song releases, or new meme-able quotes.

Some fans took to social media after the concert to praise her amazing live performance and the dramatic wig-reveal.

But some weren’t quite sure why she decided to throw her wig into the crowd.

Cardi B becomes one of the most successful rappers of all time

In September 2019, Cardi B became the highest-certified female rapper of all time. She was also the first female rapper to get to the top of the Billboard 100 since Lauryn Hill in 1998.

Her hit song WAP, featuring Megan Thee Stallion, has more than one billion streams on Spotify, while hit song from her Invasion Of Privacy album, I Like It, also has more than one billion streams.

She has also just topped the Billboard Hot 100 again with her latest single, Up. It is her fifth number one on the Hot 100 and Cardi B is the first female rapper to score more than one solo number one in the Billboard charts.

Other female rappers such as Doja Cat, Nicki Minaj, Iggy Azalea and Lil Kim have all got to the coveted number one spot but never on a song as a solo artist.

Wait, how many wigs does Cardi B wear?

If you check out Cardi B’s Instagram you can always find her in a new and impressive wig. From waist-length rainbow wigs to bright green locks, the WAP rapper isn’t afraid of showing her personality.

However, the rapper previously shared with her followers that for a magazine photoshoot she once wore six wigs!

The wigs were sewn on to her head by her stylist Mia Jackson, aka Tokyo Stylez.

We can’t wait to see what wigs Cardi tries next!
