Last night, Cardi B crushed it at the Houston Rodeo, breaking attendance records to perform to a packed crowd. But the only political commentator I actually listen to got a little starstruck herself over a picture of legend Selena Quintanilla.

In a video posted to Twitter, Cardi says she was nervous, but took comfort and inspiration from a picture of Selena backstage:

ā€œI was so nervous to perform in front of 70,000-plus people, but when i saw this picture, like, out of all the outfits that she wore, for me to see this picture with this outfit ā€” this was the inspiration for ā€˜Please Meā€™ ā€” I knew I was going to be alright.ā€

I still want the outfit Selena is wearing in that picture and am now desperate for that pink fringe cowgirl jacket.


Cardi singing ā€œComo La Florā€Ā to that picture is part of whatā€™s great about her: she somehow makes fangirling over a photo in glittery tasseled panties seem like the height of cool.

Hope your week was shiny as the rhinestones on a rodeo bra. Ā
