Cardi B accidentally revealed on her Instagram page how much she makes per concert. She later deleted the post. Just Jared caught it in time though! See below:
The 26-year-old rapper took to Instagram on Thursday night (July 11) and shared a spreadsheet showing the guaranteed money she’ll take home at every gig in June, July, and the beginning of August.
Cardi shared the breakdown to explain to fans why she hasn’t done a tour yet. Basically, she’s making more money in the festival and one-off concert gig circuit than she would with a full-fledged tour.
“I find it so funny that people that ARE NOT FANS have the biggest concerns on why haven’t I done a tour. Welp because here you go, let me break it down for you,”Cardi wrote in the since-deleted post. “Let’s say if I go on tour and I do 600K a night right… sounds good but let’s get in the touring business shall we? Stage production gotta be massive since the fans pay massive so just on stage and production I will have to put about 450K maybe more a night since you know Bardigang deserve everything. Don’t forget, outfit, makeup, hair, I’ll be left with like 150k a night.”
“Now why would I do that now when I can go on tour on my second album while I get festival and independentCardiconcerts. Money??? Mhhhhhmmmmmm… You see ya might think I’m dumb cause my attitude or the way I think but one thing bout Bardi I loveeeee money and I know how to make it …I hope I answer ya question …Thank you. Just stop it already,” she concluded.
