Cardi B's huge engagement ring from Migos rapper Offset was just a preview of what's to come; the "Bodak Yellow" rapper wants an out-of-this-world wedding, and it sounds perfect for her larger than life personality.
In an interview for New York magazine's cover story on her meteoric come-up, Cardi says of her impending nuptials, “The world is not ready for it.”
And it seems Cardi has already decided on details like color scheme and her bridesmaids' apparel. “Everybody got to be wearing red," she said. “My bridesmaids are gonna be wearing suits, what's good.” Sounds like she'll be wearing her trademark red-soled Louboutins down the aisle, too.
The profile also revealed more about her whirlwind romance with Offset, and the engagement she's barely had time to enjoy. "She'd been so busy performing that she hadn't even found the time to celebrate her engagement, she told me two weeks after it happened. Offset got down on one knee, onstage during a concert in Philadelphia, and gave her an eight-carat teardrop-diamond ring reported by TMZ to have a sticker value of $550,000," according to the article's author, Allison P. Davis. "The way I wanted to celebrate was just get real drunk and make love, and we haven't even had sex after I got my ring!" says Cardi.
On October 28, Cardi posted about her engagement and her love for Offset on Instagram, writing, "Jesus Christ I'm so emotional, @offsetyrn I loveee you so much .Thank you for seeing the potential in me since you met me .For giving me advice molding me and loving me .Your such a amazing man to me your family ,friends ,kids and you are extremely talented.I can't wait to spend FOREVAAAA with you .Lets make a lot shmoney and love together ❤️ ❤️"
But by far the most romantic, and funny, new detail about her relationship is the story of how they first got together. Davis explained, "The two of them had met after Offset direct-messaged a friend of hers. He wrote, succinctly, 'I want Cardi,' Cardi recalled. 'I told her to tell him I don't date rappers,' she says. They later connected at a party, where it turned out that she did."
