So, Uh, Cardi B Was Attacked By That Cheetah In The "Bodak Yellow" Music Video
You can’t really run away in red bottoms.
In case you haven't seen it (if not, why not??) the music video for Cardi B's "Bodak Yellow" is straight 🔥🔥🔥🔥.
I mean, it inspired a meme!
But, it turns out that Cardi had a little scare behind the scenes. In a recent interview with Genius, director Picture Perfect revealed that the cheetah flippin' attacked her!
He explained, "I didn't know how hard it was going to be to get a cheetah out there [in Dubai]. We actually got this cheetah from a sultan out there. He's actually calm right here. We shot this other scene that we didn't use and he attacked Cardi in that scene."
He continued, "This cheetah scene was really supposed to be Cardi in an exotic car. That’s the vibe in Dubai. They ride around with these cats in the passenger seat. We could never get that shot off."
"We didn’t find the guy crazy enough to let us put a cheetah in his passenger seat and I don’t think Cardi would’ve trusted that.”
Somehow, they were able to find a second cheetah to replace the first, and after it'd eaten "about six pounds of deer meat, he was just calm."
"I said, 'This is what people want to see — you petting this cat. And, we went for it...I was nervous!"
Instead of calling it quits, the "Finesse" singer powered through and even became comfortable enough to pet the animal.
Honestly, this is just more proof that Cardi's a boss.
