Experts say the coronavirus can live under long false nails for days and they warn women to cut their nails to avoid getting sick or spreading the virus to vulnerable people.

Rapper Cardi B (pictured) is among the celebrities who wear impossibly long false nails that are unhealthy and filthy according to experts.

Dr. Elisabeth Dancey, a British beauty and aesthetics expert, told the DailyMail.com that germs easily hide under fingernails that come in contact with the face.

She says if you can't feel your fingers, then your nails are too long.

"Long nails, nail varnish and nail extensions have always been a no-no for anybody who needs spotlessly clean hands; nurses, doctors, therapists, cooks, mothers and carers."

She said germs such as fungi, bacteria and viruses can easily hide underneath the nail space and easily be transmitted to whatever you touch.

"Doctors know this and rigorously scrub under their nails before donning gloves and performing surgery with a sterile brush and sanitizing solution. We should now follow their example."

She noted it is impossible to properly wash your hands if your nails are long.

Cardi B is calling out celebrities for "causing confusion" by going public with their positive coronavirus diagnoses with no symptoms.

The 27-year-old rapper took to Instagram Live on Tuesday to question why celebrities and athletes are being tested for the virus if they have no symptoms.

"I wanna let these celebrities know, the confusion that the general public has, if a celebrity is saying I don't have no symptoms... but I went and got tested and I got positive, that causes confusion. That makes people be like 'wait a minute, I went out... I might just have it. I'm scared!"

Cardi claimed celebrities are paying $34,000 for private testing, which is not available to the general public.

"The coronavirus is very much real. First things first," she continued.

"A lot of celebrities, you have the luxury to pay $34,000, or whatever the f**k it costs to get tested and treated. A lot of these people don't f**king have that money. Some people don't even have enough to f**king afford healthcare. And I feel like all this s**t, for coronavirus treatments, for testing, I feel like the government should take that s**t, charge that s**t to the game, and not charge people for it."

And while the United States is currently offering tests to older people in their 40s to 60s who have flu-like symptoms, they have to wait four days for the results.

"If you are positive for coronavirus they will tell you to quarantine in your home and come back if your fever goes 100 and some s**t degrees. I don't feel like that's right," the "Bodak Yellow" rapper added.

Cardi has been sharing her thoughts on the flu-like pandemic on her social media pages. She recorded a gimmick song about the virus that went viral.

Cardi B wants answers about the U.S. government's overreaction to the coronavirus pandemic as at least 5 states are on lockdown.

The "Bodak Yellow" rapper hasn't been shy about voicing her views and, on Saturday night, the 27-year-old took to Instagram to question why NBA superstars who tested positive say they feel fine and have no symptoms.

The mother-of-one was confused about who should get tested if every celebrity and athlete who has tested positive had no symptoms.

"Let's say that I have the coronavirus right now, ok? How am I supposed to know I got it!? Because sometimes I be like, 'If you have a cough you have it," she continued. "But then I be seeing these basketball players who say, like, 'Yeah, I have the coronavirus, but I don't got no symptoms'.

"So, how the f**k am I supposed to know when I am supposed to, like, get tested for it?", she concluded. "That's my problem right there. Y'all ain't really saying what it is! Tell me what it is and what it ain't!"

In a similar broadcast earlier in the week, the "Kream" star confessed she was "losing my f**king mind" as she begged for answers from the government about the pandemic.

The rapper is among those who question the government's overreaction to the virus that kills only 1% of those infected. Many Americans are on the unemployment line due to state lockdown orders as half the country is on quarantine.

Cardi B and her closest competitor, Doja Cat, fell out and are no longer on speaking terms, according to multiple reports.

Apparently, Doja has surpassed Cardi in terms of popularity. Industry insiders say Doja -- who is all natural -- is easier to market than Cardi. The reason? Well, look at Cardi - now look at Doja.

Cardi has had difficulty matching the success of her summer banger "Bodak Yellow." Rap fans are fickle. They want new music in a timely manner. They will abandon a lazy artist and hop on the next big thing if they don't get what they want.

That "next big thing" is Doja Cat.

Nicki Minaj remains the most popular female rapper on the platform with 49 million monthly listeners.

Cardi couldn't take the heat so she unfollowed Doja on social media.

A source told MTO News, "Cardi is a jealous person. Doja has nothing but love in her heart for Cardi. [Cardi] should work through her jealousy and come join this movement."

Cardi B's alleged attack on two sisters who were bartenders at Angels Strip Club in Queens, New York in 2018 was orchestrated by her bestie Star Brim, feds say.

On Tuesday, federal prosecutors charged Brim with racketeering and illegal gang activities for allegedly heading a notorious NY street gang.

Feds reportedly gave Brim, who is 9 months pregnant, one month to turn herself in after giving birth. The baby is due this month (Feb).

The first-time mom proudly posed with her baby daddy, an alleged Crips gang member, at her baby shower last month.

Brim captioned an Instagram image: "THE PARENTS... HAVEN'T PARTIED FOR 8 MONTHS HAD TO TURN UP".
 

Also attending the baby shower was her bestie Cardi B, actress LaLa Anthony, and rapper Pop Smoke, who was killed in a home invasion early Wednesday in California.

According to the New York Post's gossip column Page Six, the rapper's best friend ordered the 5-9 Brims gang members to target two sisters and deliver a savage beatdown without killing them.

After a gang member sent her video of the first assault on the sisters, Brim, whose real name is Yonette Respass, didn't think the first assault was "vicious" enough, court documents claim. So she ordered gang members to attack the women again.

Prosecutors unsealed federal indictments against the "Bodak Yellow" rapper's alleged "muscle" Jeffrey Bush, 35, and her close pal Brim, 28, on racketeering conspiracy charges for their alleged involvement with the 5-9 Brims, a chapter of the notorious Bloods gang.

Brim, who is allegedly the gangs' 'godmother' or highest-ranking female member, apparently ordered a beatdown on the sisters for showing disrespect to Cardi, prosecutors allege.

One of the sisters was accused of sleeping with Cardi's promiscuous husband, rapper Offset of Migos. Brim (left) and Cardi are pictured at a Queens, NY courthouse, where Cardi faces trial on assault charges.

"I want hands put on them. I don't even want no talking," Brim ordered the gang, according to court papers.

Bush and three other female gang members then arrived at the Angels strip club on August 15, where they grabbed one of the bartenders by the hair, dragged her across the bar and punched her in the head.

Bush recorded the entire incident on his cell phone and sent the footage to Brim, who was doing time in prison for assault.

"Dissatisfied with the first attack, defendant Respass continued communicating with other enterprise members about the assault, and discussed whether the assault was vicious enough or if 5-9 Brims needed to attack the victim again," a detention memo alleges.
 

Bush and Cardi B, real name Belcalis Almanzar, still have assault charges pending against them in Queens Supreme Court for the second incident. Cardi, who was present but did not participate in the assaults, has pleaded not guilty on the assault charges.

Cardi B's bestie Star Brim is heading back to prison. She was indicted by the federal government on RICO charges for being "Godmother" of the 59 Brims street gang.

Lead prosecutor Geoffrey S. Berman, who also collared rapper Tekashi69 and the Nine Trey Gangsta Bloods, set his sights on Brim before she was released from prison last year.

Brim, who was born Yonette Respass, was named in the federal indictment announced by the U.S. Attorney's Office for the Eastern District of New York on Tuesday.

Prosecutors charged Brim and 10 other alleged 59 Brims Gang members on RICO counts and conspiracy to commit assault in-aid-of racketeering, in addition to other violence and illegal activity between January 2012 and December 2019.

The feds say Brim orchestrated the attack against two female bartenders at a NY strip club because they "disrespected" Cardi B.

Brim, who was behind bars at the time, allegedly ordered her subordinates to attack the women without murdering them. According to the indictment, Brim ordered her underlings to touch the 2 women with extreme violence.

"I want hands put on them," Brim reportedly told gang members. "I don't even want no talking."

In August, members of the 59 Brims gang, who are affiliated with the Bloods, arrived at the Angels strip club to confront the two sisters who worked as bartenders there. One of the sisters was accused of sleeping with Cardi's husband, rapper Offset of Migos.

Though Cardi did not physically participate in the attack, police say she watched it go down, as her crew threw chairs and bottles at the sisters, who sustained serious facial and head injuries.

Surveillance footage from inside the bar shows co-defendant Jeffrey Bush filming the attack on his cell phone.

A woman standing next to Bush ordered a drink from the intended target, who was asked to lean closer. The woman then grabbed the victim by her hair and dragged her over the bar while beating her in the head with a bottle.

Bush filmed the entire assault and sent the footage to Brim in prison. After reviewing the video, Brim decided the violence was not vicious enough, according to the indictment.

The defendants were then ordered to carry out a second assault on the sisters about two weeks later at Angels strip club. Cardi was in the house for the second assault as well.

The sisters were fired by the strip club's management after the two incidents. The women later sued the club's owner.

Cardi was arrested and charged with misdemeanor assault and reckless endangerment in the strip club attack in the summer of 2019.

Cardi, whose real name is Belcalis Almanzar, is seen above arriving at the courthouse with Brim by her side.

Brim's gang is also accused of murdering members of a rival gang, Real Ryte, conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute controlled substances, and unlawful use of firearms for drug trafficking purposes.

Cardi and Brim were friends before she skyrocketed to hip-hop fame with her summer anthem "Bodak Yellow."

Brim, who is currently pregnant, is negotiating the terms of her surrender. If convicted, she faces up to 50 years in federal prison.

Cardi B says she is happy that her daughter Kulture met "rich friends" at Kylie Jenner's daughter's birthday party.

Kulture, 18 months, was one of the moneyed guests at the lavish bash held in honor of Stormi's second birthday.

While the "Money" rapper and her husband, Offset, attended the Super Bowl in Miami on Sunday, Cardi's sister, Hennessy Carolina and Kulture attended Stormi's birthday.

Cardi took to social media to share her daughter's experience spending time with the rich and famous.

Rapper Offset was caught on video throwing punches after his wife Cardi B was accidentally sprayed with champagne during a night out at a strip club in Miami.

The incident happened on Thursday night at the Booby Trap strip club to kick off the big Super Bowl weekend.

According to TMZ, the Migos rapper, 28, and Cardi, 27, were standing on stage around 3 a.m. when someone in the crowd started spraying champagne in the air.

When some of the champagne splashed on Cardi, Offset jumped off stage and into the crowd where he started throwing punches.

Witnesses say he didn't care who he hit - men, women, transsexuals - it didn't matter to him. Meanwhile, Cardi, who recently had some work done on her face, was unbothered by the melee. She stood onstage and watched as club security broke up the fight.

In an unrelated incident, Offset was detained by police at The Grove shopping center in Los Angeles when someone reported a man with a gun in the parking deck.

Offset, whose real name is Kiari Cephus, was one of two men detained by police because they fit the general description of a Black man with a gun. TMZ reports the rapper was not a arrested.

Cardi B sparked herpes rumors when she showed up in Paris, France, to support her husband Offset at his big runway debut. Tongues are wagging because Cardi flew into Charles-de-Gaulle airport wearing a face mask.

Later she wore the same mask when the couple showed up at UGG's 12X12 Sneaker Launch. At a different event she wore a blinged out $11,000 Couture ski mask with a sheer Mah-Jing Wong catsuit worn over a black bra and thong, according to Page Six.

Black Twitter speculated that Cardi is hiding a herpes breakout under her mask. But others say she has botched lip injections. One Twitter user speculated that the 27-year-old rapper may be hiding a fat lip after fighting with Offset.

Question: What do you think Cardi is hiding under her masks?

Bernie Sanders is endorsing rapper Cardi B for Congress. The Vermont Senator praised Cardi and said "it would be great" for her to run for Congress.

"Cardi B is deeply concerned about what's happening in the country," Sanders said, according to TMZ.

"She knows what it's like to live in poverty and struggle, and it would be great for her to bring that experience to politics."

Cardi shocked her social media followers when she announced her plans to go back to school and run for Congress.

"I think I want to be a politician," she tweeted on Jan. 12. "I really love government even tho I don't agree with Government."

The "Bodak Yellow" rapper followed up with another tweet:

"I do feel like if I go back to school and focus up I can be part of Congress, I deadass have sooo much ideas that make sense. I just need a couple of years of school and I can shake the table."

Twitter's response to Cardi's post was a mix of ridicule and disbelief. Some Twitter users believe no amount of schooling can help Cardi achieve her political goals.

One teacher corrected the poor grammar and spelling errors in Cardi's tweet.

Cardi B, 27, is inspired by Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the 30-year-old former bartender who was elected to Congress in 2018 because most voters in her district stayed home.

Cardi, who was born Belcalis Marlenis Almánzar, doesn't expect to have that kind of luck, but she thinks she has a chance - and so does her close friend, Sanders, 78.

One roadblock in Cardi's path to Capitol Hill is an assault charge in NYC. Cardi faces prison time for assaulting 2 female bartenders at a strip club in August 2018.

If she is convicted and sentenced to prison - and IF Sanders is elected president - Cardi will need a full presidential pardon in order to run for Congress.

U.S. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has inspired at least one high school dropout to pursue a career in politics.

Ocasio-Cortez, aka AOC, is a former bartender who was elected to Congress because voters stayed home in New York's 14th congressional district in 2018.

AOC's surprising rise in politics garnered the attention of rapper Cardi B, a former stripper who is inspired to go back to school to run for Congress.

Cardi has a lot to be thankful for. On Tuesday, the 27-year-old mother of one gave her followers the grand tour of the new $5.8 million mansion.

My real estate friend was unable to find any public records for the sale of this home. But she did find a $35,000-a-month rental listing for the same address. The rental was taken off the market in October.

The house sat for two years before Cardi and Offset came along. The owners chopped $4 million off the original sales price before listing it for rent.

$35,000 a month is nothing to sneeze at. Cardi is doing the right thing if she is renting. Why buy a house that she will have a very difficult time unloading in a few years?

The 22-square-foot mansion in affluent Sandy Springs, near Chastain Park boasts 5 bedrooms, 11 bathrooms, a 4-car garage, a man cave/game room and a gun range.

The 27-year-old rapper was once at the top of her game. It’s hard to think of another rapper - male or female - who dominated the music industry faster than Cardi B. And she did it on the strength of just one song ("Bodak Yellow")

She was destined for rap legend status - until Lizzo and Megan Thee Stallion came along and stole her thunder.

2019 was an amazing year for Cardi. She won 40 major music awards including a Grammy Award, four American Music Awards, four BET Awards, eleven BET Hip Hop Awards, and an MTV Award.

She also appeared in her first big screen film Hustlers with Jennifer Lopez and Lizzo.

Offset is just a kid at heart. His birthday cake was video game-inspired.

In a video clip shared to her Instagram stories on Saturday, Dec. 14, the "Bodak Yellow" rapper teased her man before joking: "You got every car. You got every jewelry. You got everything. You got every shoe. You know what I'm saying. What else can I give somebody that got everything?" she asked before giving her husband a hint: "The fridge!"

In a refrigerator behind Offset, the rapper piled stacks of money, which the "I Like It" star said was $500,000. Cardi knows how to keep her cheating husband happy.

"Happy birthday, and don't expect no Christmas gift from me. Ain't no Christmas gift. Only for the kids." Cardi quipped, before telling her husband she loves him.

Later in the evening, Cardi uploaded more clips of the celebrations, including strippers giving her man lap dances, and a clip of him feasting on fried chicken sandwiches from Popeyes.

Cardi is beside herself after her rapper husband Offset's socials were apparently hacked early Tuesday. Someone close to the rapper sent out a series of tweets on his timeline that suggested he was batting for the other team.

The hacker then changed his password and locked him out of his accounts.

No photo

The tweets were quickly deleted but not before Offset's followers took screenshots of the posts.

Cardi B addressed the tweets as soon as she woke up this morning. She assured her fans that her man's socials were hacked.

Her assistant was unable to get access to Offset's Instagram account. As Cardi spoke on camera, a nervous-looking Offset shadowed her every move.

The fact that both of his accounts were hacked at the same is very suspect. It can only mean one thing: that someone very very close to him knew his password (he probably uses the same password for all of his accounts) and hacked into his accounts.

It isn't hard to figure out who did it (no, it wasn't Cardi or her assistant). It was someone very close to him. Cardi knows who it is. That's why she keeps him so close.

Cardi B dug in her heels after the backlash when she claimed credit for paving the way for female SoundCloud rappers.

"I didn't say I pave the way for female rappers but I deff gave the hood and women hope," she tweeted on Wednesday, Oct. 23 [sic].

The 27-year-old rapper said she opened the door for male rappers to collaborate with unknown female rappers on their songs. Cardi said before she became a household name, rappers were hesitant to record a verse on her tracks because she wasn't mainstream.

"Nikkas wasn't collabing with female rappers and putting them in a shelf and not focusing on them. Not giving them proper attention. It seem like it was impossible for it to be more than one female rapper. These male rappers where not even takin Money from female rappers for a feature cause it seem far fetch for another woman to make it. I see so many artists collabing wit females now even.. Some that are not mainstream because I know they don't want to miss out on the opportunity in case they make it cause trust and believe [a lot] of Nikkas I asked for features from when they see me they tell me "I shoulda believe" [Damn] I should have did the feature [sic]."

Cardi's fans agreed, saying she made it possible for SoundCloud female rappers to get instant clout by hopping on the records of up-and-coming rappers.

One Instagram user wrote:

"She's completely right there's a lot of female rappers coming up right now that we never heard of and we're still learning about them Cardi gave them big hope, there should be no reason for only a few mainstream female rappers to make it while there's thousands of mainstream male rappers."

Rapper Offset is headed back to family court after child support negotiations broke down between the Migos star and one of his four baby mamas, according to PEOPLE.

In 2015, the 27-year-old Sagittarius fathered a girl, Kalea Marie Cephus, with up-and-coming rapper Shya L'amour, born Nicole Marie Algarin.

Christian Vierig/Getty Images

Things went smoothly until Offset welcomed another daughter, Kulture, with Dominican rapper Cardi B, born Belcalis Almanzar, in The Bronx.

As baby mamas often do, Shya compared her daughter's modest lifestyle to the opulent lifestyle of 15-month-old Kulture, who lives in the lap of luxury with her famous parents in Atlanta.

After an unsuccessful attempt to wrangle more money out of Offset, Shya took him to court, claiming Offset has only "provided limited financial support," and she wants additional cash from the rapper via court order.

Shya, 30, also included DNA results to prove Kalea was fathered by the rapper, TMZ reported.

Offset has never denied Kalea is his child. The 4-year-old sat at her daddy's feet on the cover of his latest album, titled Father of 4. He threw a lavish birthday party for the youngster last year, and she is featured in occasional photos on his Instagram.

In addition to making it rain, Shya also wants a judge to order Offset to visit his daughter more often, particularly on the weekends, holidays and in the summer, according to TMZ.

Cardi B and Chance the Rapper are convinced that President Donald Trump is heading for an easy re-election next year.

Cardi and Chance said during Tip "T.I." Harris's ExpediTIously podcast on Tuesday that President Trump has a big voter base that will give the U.S. leader an easy re-election.

The three rappers were promoting their Netflix competition reality TV series Rhythm + Flow.

"You all can quote me on this a couple of years down the line," Chance the Rapper said. "I think Trump is going to win again at the next election because he's got the biggest base."

"He does. I believe it," said Cardi B, citing the passion of Trump supporters.

"I really hate to say it, but sometimes I do believe that Trump will be winning," Cardi added. The 27-year-old rapper noted that none of the Democratic candidates have achieved the level of support that Trump has among his loyal base.

"Just because due to the fact that every single time I don't see nobody saying they love a Democratic candidate," she said. "There's no candidate that people are saying like we love, we want them to win.

"A lot of people vote with feelings in America and a lot of their feelings is racism and religion," she added.

Cardi is a vocal supporter of independent Bernie Sanders who recently suffered a heart attack that may limit his appearances on the campaign trail.

President Trump won a small victory on Tuesday when House Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced she will not hold a floor vote to authorize an official impeachment inquiry.

"There is no requirement that we have a vote and so at this time we will not be having a vote," Pelosi said in a press briefing following a meeting with House Democrats on Tuesday.

Trump came under fire by the Democrats for asking a foreign power to investigate corruption by presidential candidate Joe Biden and his son, Hunter Biden, who is accused of using his father's position as vice president to accept millions of dollars from foreign powers. A practice known as "influence peddling."

Political analysts predicted the Democrats would not follow through with the impeachment inquiry into Trump, since it would cause a distraction for Joe Biden and the other Democratic candidates on the campaign trail.

The activists carried a sign that read: "LIL KIM ANIMAL ABUSER" and a poster that shows a slaughtered animal. "Animals get electrocuted!… Lil Kim stop wearing fur!" the female protester yelled at the rapper. As they moved closer to Kim, she repeated, "Back up, back up, back up, back up!" Lil Kim was held back by one of her bodyguards before fur and nails flew.

Rapper Jim Jones was exposed by incarcerated gang banger Tekashi69 as a card-carrying member of the Nine Trey Bloods street gang.

Tekashi69, also known as 6ix9ine, real name Daniel Hernandez, sang like a canary in heat on the witness stand during his first day of questioning on Thursday.

The 23-year-old rapper testified as a government witness against several members of the Bloods in his ongoing racketeering case.

On Thursday, Teskashi confirmed that Jones was in the gang's back pocket. Later, under cross-examination, Tekashi also confirmed Bronx rapper Cardi B is a member of the notorious Bloods street gang.

It is a well-known fact that Cardi reps the Bloods. She often brags about her gang affiliation in rap lyrics.

"You joined the Bloods to advance your music year?" attorney Alex Huot asked Tekashi.

"Yes," Tekashi replied.

"You knew Cardi B was a Blood?" Huot asked.

"Correct," Tekashi said.

"You knew Cardi B made music videos with Bloods in the background?" the attorney asked.

"Correct. I didn't pay attention," Tekashi said.

Jones, who is a high-ranking member of the Nine Trey Bloods, was caught on a wiretapped phone call telling a godfather of the Nine Trey Bloods he'd "best get to violating" Tekashi 6ix9ine for splitting from the gang.

In a taped phone call dated Nov. 17, Jones and Jamel "Mel Murda" Jones (no relation) discussed Tekashi's comments denouncing the Bloods during a radio interview on Power 105. The men agreed that Tekashi had humiliated high-ranking Bloods member Kifano "Shotti" Jordan, who was the Brooklyn rapper's manager.

Mel Murda is heard telling Jones that Tekashi should be "super violated. Super duper."

Jim Jones responded, "Tell that n — - a he's not a gang member no more. He kicked out the whip. He was never a gang member ... He was always a money ploy for the gang members."

He added, "They gonna have to violate shorty 'cause shorty on some bull***t. He better get to get to violating."

"Violated" is street slang for murdering or torturing a gang rival.

Tekashi and Jordan were both arrested along with other gang members in a federal racketeering sting operation last year.

Tekashi is being held without bond in a federal detention facility awaiting trial.

STXfilms' Hustlers is tracking for a big box office opening this weekend, after getting off to a great start with $2.5 million in ticket sales on Thursday.

According to Deadline.com, Hustlers is expected to rake in at least $20 million this weekend, with tracking indicating the film may debut with a $25 million-$30 million opening.

The stripper flick stars Constance Wu, Jennifer Lopez, Julia Stiles, Keke Palmer and former stripper Cardi B as a group of criminal minded former strip club employees who rob their wealthy Wall Street clients.

Hustlers is inspired by a viral New York Magazine article about a crew of former strippers who were arrested for credit card theft fraud.

Anything over $23.1 million is a win for Lopez, 50, besting her 2005 high Monster in Law, and anything over $23.8 million is a record opening for STXFilms, according to Deadline.

Hustlers is the first major motion picture for rapper Cardi B, 26, and singer Lizzo, 31.
