Cardi B didn’t stand down from being in the hot seat, literally.

The Grammy Award-winning rapper is the latest celebrity to appear on Hot Ones. The popular YouTube show has developed a large audience for often rendering guests completely speechless after eating hot wings that get increasingly spicy as the interview progresses.

Sean Evans, the show’s host, asked Cardi B questions about her personal life, her new music and whom she turns to for inspiration.

She discussed Bongos, her new song with Megan Thee Stallion. The rapper said that when she first heard the beat for the song, she knew it was something people would be able to dance to.

Bongos, like, it just has a theme that you could just hear tropical music, beach, pool party,” Cardi B said. “So how do we make the beach luxurious? And that’s exactly what we do, honey.”

Evans also referenced Cardi B’s 2019 “73 Questions” interview with Vogue, in which she noted that she’s not asked about current events enough, by asking her about UFOs and aliens.

Cardi B did not hold back.

“I really don’t believe that aliens are real,” she said. “So if aliens are real and they’re smarter than us, I feel like why they just haven’t invaded us.”

Cardi B struggled with the level of spiciness as the interview progressed, reaching for her glass of milk and bowl of ice cream frequently.

“I feel like my tongue is drunk,” she said. “I’m trying to say something and it’s like I can’t even focus.”

Among the highlights of the conversation between Evans and Cardi B was the revelation of her obsession with President Franklin D. Roosevelt and first lady Eleanor Roosevelt.

“If anybody loves me and knows me, I love FDR,” Cardi B said.

“I saw the room where Churchill and FDR was talking about the nuke,” she later added. “That’s crazy to me! Like, I’m really here!” – Los Angeles Times/Tribune News Service
