Fans Say Cardi B Looks ‘Just a Little Rusty’ After She Goes Back to the Pole for the ‘Silhouette’ Challenge

Cardi B is pulling out old tricks for the new “Silhouette” challenge TikTok trend. She wrote, “So I did the silhouette challenge 😩😩….It’s so hard to do tiktoks,” on the Feb. 3 video.

As Paul Anka’s 1959 song “Put Your Head On My Shoulder” plays, Cardi comes on camera with a beautifully done face in full makeup and wearing a white floral robe and her hair held up in pins. In the background, viewers can see a stripper pole in the room, which Cardi tiptoes over to. When the beat switches to Doja Cat’s song “Streets,” the red-lit background illuminated and Cardi grabs onto the pole baring lots of skin, since she is wearing nothing but a bra and underwear. As she twirls around the pole, her long, curly tresses follow.

The clip cuts to Cardi holding herself midway up the pole before sliding back down.

Cardi’s fans flocked to the comments to cheer her on for her efforts.

One said, “CARDI FOR THE WIN 😍😍😍,” and another wrote, “ATE THAT TF UPPPPPP🔥.”

Of course, the challenge also comes with some criticism. Some felt that the Bronx rapper was “just a little rusty.” But one fan came to her defense, writing, “Anybody who has anything negative to say please post a video of you on a pole i bet you fall flat on your behind can’t knock something you yourself can’t do this I’d 🔥🔥🔥.”

Someone else revealed they like that she “brought the old cardi out real quick.”

It is pretty well known among Cardi’s fans that she was a stripper before becoming a Grammy-winning artist. The “Get Up 10” rapper revealed that she became an exotic dancer at the age of 19 after getting kicked out of her mother’s home. At the time she was in an abusive relationship and was looking for a way to make money to escape that situation and to make ends meet.
