Headlines 21/08/2018

In her first public appearance since giving birth, Cardi B opened the MTV VMA's today by teasing fans into thinking she was about to reveal her baby daughter to the world for the first time.

The opening monologue featured Cardi rocking short hair and a red dress, while holding what looked to be her newborn baby wrapped in her arms.

“I got a little surprise for you,” Cardi said as she was about to reveal the first photo of baby Kulture.

It turns out it wasn’t baby Kulture in her arms, but rather a MTV "Moonman" trophy instead.
