Cardi B Will Launch a Vegas Residency this Spring

Enigma is shaking.

Las Vegas has long been thought of as the place an artist goes when they've reached a certain point in their career. Celine Dion, Lady Gaga, Jennifer Lopez, Britney Spears, and Mariah Carey all have extensive bodies of work and multiple international smash singles that have decades of cultural investment, ripe for a "best of" stage show that eventually manifested in Vegas.

But few artists have achieved the sort of fast-tracked meteoric rise of Cardi B, who has dominated not only the charts but public interest, becoming one of the most famous women in the world. So it's not all that surprising that this week the rapper was confirmed to launch her own Vegas residency this spring at the Palms Casino Resort's new nightclub KAOS, "a dayclub and nightclub amphitheater-style complex that is set to open in April," according to AP. The rapper will join G-Eazy, Skrillex, Above and Beyond, and Kaskade at KAOS, playing five or six shows over the course of 2019, according to Variety. Tickets will range from $500 at the door to $25,000 bottle service packages. Money moves, indeed.

Cardi B's history as a sex worker and all-around sex-positive performer make this a notable residency for Las Vegas, Nevada, only place in the country where some forms of prostitution are legal. In fact, the residency won't be Cardi B's first time in Vegas: the rapper is set as the first female musical guest at Friday's AVN Awards, known as the "Oscars of porn." In a statement, the rapper said she is "excited that the AVN Awards chose me to be their first female performer ever!"

Just this week, Cardi B responded to a viral tweet that claimed the blatant sexuality in her videos was out of place in the era of #MeToo. The rapper said the sexuality in her videos "says to women that I can wear and not wear what ever I want. do [whatever] I want and that NO still means NO. So Stephanie chime in ... If I twerk and be half naked does that mean I deserve to get raped and molested ? I want to know what a conservative woman like you thinks."
