Cardi B’s Quotes & Lyrics About Breakups Are Heartbreaking



When it comes to honesty, few celebrities have Cardi B beat. The rapper is an open book about her relationship’s highs and lows, as she believes there’s no point in pretending a partnership is perfect. Of course, the fact that she reportedly filed for divorce from Offset, her husband of three years, on Sept. 15 makes Cardi B’s quotes and lyrics about breakups all the more devastating. (Elite Daily previously reached out to reps for both Cardi and Offset about the reported divorce filing but did not hear back.)

Over the course of their three-year marriage, Cardi’s relationship was consistently plagued by infidelity accusations made against Offset, some of which the “WAP” rapper confirmed herself. The two even briefly split in December 2018 due to Offset’s cheating, but the couple reconciled not long after. Because of this, Cardi has often felt compelled to defend her decision to stay with Offset, though she isn’t shy about expressing the heartbreak that is also involved.

From dealing with cheating rumors to ending things with Offset to attempting to work things out, Cardi has always been candid about her relationship struggles, but these quotes about heartache definitely hit harder following her reported divorce filing.

When She Expressed Fears About Being Cheated On… Again

When She Didn’t Let Offset’s Infidelity Hurt Her Self-Esteem

Following those sex tape rumors, Cardi felt pressure from fans to end the relationship, even though she didn’t want to. “It’s like everybody is coming down my neck like, ‘Why are you not leaving him? You have low self-esteem’,” she told Cosmopolitan during a February 2018 interview. “I don’t have low self-esteem … I know I look good. I know I’m rich, I know I’m talented. I know I could get any man I want — any basketball player, football player. But I want to work out my sh*t with my man, and I don’t got to explain why.”

When She Claimed She Had A Hard Time Trusting Offset

Even before marrying Offset, Cardi struggled to trust her partner. As she told GQ in April 2018, “People used to put things in my head: ‘He gonna leave you. He be f*cking with mad b*tches.’ People used to put things in his head: ‘Cardi, she’s a dog. Don’t trust her.’ We never really trusted each other because I always feel like he could get any girl he wants — what makes me think he’s gonna want me?”

When She Spoke About Unrequited Feelings

In “Ring” from Invasion of Privacy, Cardi shows uncharacteristic vulnerability when she sings, “You know it don’t go to my head, I’m only arrogant in bed / I just love to know you wanna spend time with me instead / Now you all caught up, yeah / You all caught up and you done left me alone, yeah / You was all fed up / Ready for the next step, wanna be on your own.”

When She Felt The Strain Of Cheating Rumors

Despite the cheating rumors, Cardi initially stood by Offset, though she admitted to feeling stressed by the accusations. “Every single day there’s rumors about me and my dude,” she told W in October 2018. “And it almost drives me crazy, because I start to believe them. I don’t have no proof. I don’t have receipts. But I just got to know my man.”

When She Admitted She “Grew Out Of Love” With Offset

In December 2018, Cardi and Offset broke up after TMZ leaked text messages reportedly exchanged between Offset and another women. “I’ve been trying to work things out with my baby’s father for a hot minute now,” Cardi told her followers in a video posted on Instagram. “…we’ve got a lot of love for each other but things just haven’t been working out between us for a long time. And it’s nobody’s fault. I guess we just grew out of love, but we’re not together anymore.”

When She Described The Devastation Of Catching A Partner Cheating

In her song “Thru Your Phone” from Invasion of Privacy, Cardi describes what it’s like to catch a partner in the act with the lyrics, “I went through your phone last night / Saw some things I didn’t like / I went through your phone last night / It’s killing me, killing me, killing me.”

When She Said She Needed “A Reset”

Following her December 2018 split with Offset, Cardi told Extra she was ready for a fresh start. “I’m very excited for 2019 — I just feel like it’s going to be a reset,” she said. “2018 was the good, bad and the ugly year. Like, a lot of good, but a lot of bad, a lot of ugly, all mixed together.”

When She Was Shamed For Staying With Her Husband

For Cardi, deciding whether or not to stay with Offset after he cheated felt like a lose-lose situation. As she explained to Vogue in December 2019, “When me and my husband got into our issues — you know, he cheated and everything — and I decided to stay with him and work together with him, a lot of people were so mad at me; a lot of women felt disappointed in me. But it’s real-life sh*t. If you love somebody and you stop being with them, and you’re depressed and social media is telling you not to talk to that person because he cheated, you’re not really happy on the inside until you have the conversation. Then, if you get back with them, it’s like, how could you? You let all of us down.”

When She Said “Monogamy Is The Only Way”

Cardi sees infidelity as betrayal, and she expressed as much during her December 2019 interview with Vogue. “He has my back for everything, I have his back for everything, so when you cheat, you’re betraying the person that has your back the most,” she said. “Why would you do that? We have come to a clear understanding. For me, monogamy is the only way.”

When She Asked Her Partner To “Be Careful” With Her

In her song “Be Careful” from her Invasion of Privacy Album, Cardi appeared to send a message to Offset when she sang, “Be careful with me / Do you know what you doin’?/ Whose feelings that you hurtin’ and bruisin’?/ You gon’ gain the whole world/ But is it worth the girl that you’re losin’?”

When She Felt As Though People Wanted To See Her Hurt

Amid the persistent cheating rumors about Offset, Cardi couldn’t help but feel as though fans almost wanted to see her relationship end. “I don’t really like talking about love much, but I feel like I have to do it, just because I want people to know a little bit,” she explained to Elle in September 2020. “There’s always rumors about me and my husband, and I feel like people would rather start rumors because they want me to be heartbroken. They want me to be hurt.”

Cardi has yet to confirm the divorce rumors herself, but if she does, I’m sure she’ll do so with her trademark candor. I’m rooting for you, Cardi!

Everything Coming In The Japan World Update




With the new Japan world update, players have access to a redesigned portion of MSF’s world map to fly over and six new airports to land at in Japan.

Microsoft Flight Simulator has become one of the hottest games of the summer after releasing just a few weeks ago.  The updated graphics and new areas of the world to explore have pulled in players from all over the globe. With the new Japan World update, players have access to a redesigned portion of the world map to fly over and six new airports to land at. There’s new landing challenges in and around six Japanese cities that have been updated using high-resolution 3D photogrammetry. The free update will go live on September 29.

Microsoft Flight Simulator isn’t a simple game. It simulates flight using real-world data along with precise globe-mapping, alongside realistic, stunning graphics. It’s beautiful to look down from the window of a plane and see recognizable landmarks or realistic representation of land forms in whatever area the player chooses to fly over. There’s also lots of real-world weather data that’s used to make Microsoft Flight Simulator as realistic as possible.

The Japan update, or Microsoft Flight Simulator’s World Update 1, as the devs call it, focuses on six cities in The Land of the Rising Sun: Yokohama, Tokyo, Takamatsu, Tokushima, Sendai, and Utsunomiya. There’s also six airports that received major attention during the update: Hachijo-jima island Airport, Kerama Airport, Kushiro Airport, Nagasaki Airport, Shimojishima Airport, and Suwanosejima Airport.

What MSF’s Update Changed

Microsoft Flight Simulator DA40NG

The designs for the new airports come along with landing challenges in and around the Airports. There’s no assisted landing features in Microsoft Flight Simulator 2020, and so it will take a few practice lands before players should head over to Japan to try and land in Hachijo-jima Airport, which is located on a volcanic island.

There’s updates to specific buildings in Japan. Cultural landmarks like Himeji Castle and the Kobe Port Tower strongly define the country’s architectural personality, while natural features of the land like Mt. Fuji and Matsushima Bay stick out of the landscape in the most pleasant way. The game offers an experience much better than browsing Google for images, because the landmarks and architecture are able to be viewed from any angle. The experience is visually rich at varying altitudes, which creates an authentic flight experience. Just switch on Auto-Pilot and enjoy the view.

The release of updates for Microsoft Flight Simulator 2020 will alternate between World Updates and Simulation Updates. Developers Asobo Studios will continue to make these updates free, but will also mix DLC content into the game as time goes along. Since this update focuses on the world of Microsoft Flight Simulator 2020, the next update players should expect to see is expected to focus on the simulation aspect of the game, and could include new planes. As for the Japan World Update, there’s six new cities and six new airports to keep players busy.

Jeff Daniels’ ‘Instant Credibility’ Makes James Comey a Hero in ‘The Comey Rule’




“I was about to throw up on my shoes,” Comey said of the experience of watching Jeff Daniels and Brendan Gleeson reenacting his one-on-one dinner scene with POTUS.

Fired by President Donald Trump in May 2017, former FBI Director James Comey’s first reaction to writer-director Billy Ray and producer Shane Salerno adapting his 2018 memoir was “Hell no,” he said in a recent live Washington Post Zoom interview. “I didn’t want to be part of such a thing. They talked me into it.”

Ray wrote “The Comey Rule” as a story about how heartbreaking it can be to be a public servant. It was because of that take that Comey finally agreed, after months of resisting, to give him the rights to adapt his “A Higher Loyalty: Truth, Lies and Leadership.” The resulting two-part limited series launched Sunday on Showtime.

On a certain level, Comey’s hesitation was understandable. “Start with the fact that the guy to play him was in ‘Dumb and Dumber,’” said Emmy-winner Jeff Daniels (“The Newsroom”), who, in fact, brings his trademark decency and gravitas to the role. (He’s also 6’3″ to Comey’s 6’8″.)

But Ray wanted Daniels because “he brings instant credibility,” Ray said in a phone interview. “You know the guy’s telling you the truth. With someone as polarizing as Comey, that’s an important hire. Jeff is someone America already trusted.”

Equally important, Comey is quiet and contained; he’s got a poker face. “I needed to have an actor so confident that he wouldn’t be thrown by the fact Trump is the bells and whistles fireworks part in this show,” Ray said, “an actor who can trust his own stillness and quietude and know a lot of power in that.”

“The movie shows you what he’s thinking,” said Daniels, who listened to Comey read his own audiobook. “You put the thought in your head and show what he was thinking. I had so much, I could hear his voice in my head. We tried to show you him thinking about what to do, moment to moment. His decisions were so often between a rock and a hard place.”

According to Comey, his literary agents had to force him to include the most incendiary material in the book: his one-on-one meetings with Trump, who is played with powerful menace by Brendan Gleeson. “I didn’t want to write a book,” said Comey, who scribbled notes after each Trump meeting. “I wanted to leave the Trump stuff out…I wanted to share a message about institutional values, about these people and the values they represent in American life. I’m sensitive to criticism. I don’t like the narrative that I’m a showboat…the idea of a screen production of my book made me cringe.”

It turned out that Ray “had a lot to say about the Trump presidency,” he told me. “It was making me slightly crazy, the way he was talking about the Deep State, which is just a bunch of public servants who cared about their country and the apolitical intentions of its most important institutions. I was looking for a way to express this idea.”

Salerno told Comey that this was the way he could get his message to more young people than would ever read his bestseller. When Comey talked it over with his wife Patricia (played in the series by Jennifer Ehle), they decided to cooperate, after all, without conditions.

Comey chose the Oscar-nominated Ray (for the adapted screenplay for “Captain Phillips”) for the adaptation “because I knew he would tell the truth. I’m a human being. I have strengths and weaknesses. I didn’t care how I was portrayed. I wanted the institution shown in an honest way. There’s a whole lot flying around about the FBI; I knew Billy had a passion for truth. That’s what sold me.”

And Ray returns the compliment. During all the research and phone, email and in-person interviews that he did with dozens of players including Comey, he told me, he “has never said a word in public that has been proven false, ever, not even questionable. You can’t say that about Trump or [Michael] Flynn. He tells the truth. You may disagree with this interpretation of things, but that guy doesn’t lie, manipulate or spin.”

To diffuse some of the criticism about Comey, Ray has U.S. Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein (Scoot McNairy) lay out the showboating claim right at the top of the show. “I know people are conflicted about James Comey,” he told me. “Who better to preach that than Rod Rosenstein, because he’s the Salieri to Comey’s Mozart. He’s the guy who would like to be a leader but doesn’t have it. He’s the one who asks James Comey, ‘Please come talk to my team about leadership.’”

One criticism of “The Comey Rule” is that it glorifies Comey as a Washington do-gooder. “I never thought of it that way,” said Ray, who transitioned from movies to television with this series. “I never thought about how to make Comey into a hero. I thought, ‘Let’s put the world in Jim Comey’s shoes for five minutes, create a story, and go inside the rooms and the decisions he made that so profoundly affected the electorate.’

“We tell the truth and present the facts,” he said. “This is what Jim Comey was facing. Here were the facts, pressures, constraints, and political realities. ‘What would you have done?’ It’s not my way of saying he did the right thing or the wrong thing. It’s the thought process that went into those decisions, and the staff around him [most of whom have since left the FBI], challenging and/or amplifying those decisions. It was a noble process, the intentions of the process were pure.”

In fact, “The Comey Rule” refers to the ex-FBI chief’s Achilles heel. After all, he’s the executive who insisted on investigating Hillary Clinton’s emails on the eve of the presidential election that swung into Trump’s favor. As Ray was talking to people at the DOJ, one of them told him that they came up with that term, he said, “for when you have such a fierce belief in your own perspective that it supersedes the norms of the DOJ.”

After his research, Ray took a 144-page treatment to the networks, selling the project to CBS because it could go to either streamer CBS All-Access or premium cabler Showtime. The drama easily broke into two parts. Night One ends with the election of Trump, and Night Two starts with his taking office. “At the end of Night One we made the case there’s a shark in the water,” said Ray, “and as we go to break, our hero is in the water, ‘Now what’s going to happen?’ I thought a lot about ‘Jaws’ as we were making this: the decision to hold off on seeing the shark for as long as humanly possible, so that when you do, it really pops. You don’t see the shark until your hero does.”

Having directed two features (“Shattered Glass” and “Secret in Their Eyes”), Ray was eager to take the reins on the $40-million four-hour limited series after another director dropped out. In some ways it felt the same, he said. “I shot ‘Shattered Glass’ on a 28-day schedule and this was two movies on a 51-day schedule. We were moving faster,” he said.

How to handle the first dramatic interpretation of Trump caused some anxiety — it would be so easy to overplay him. “We’re not doing a cartoon version of Trump,” Ray said. “I feel if we portray him accurately, he is by definition cartoonish, so we made the decision to play him straight to the extent we could. His hair couldn’t be a joke even though the hair is as ridiculous as Trump, and his suits fit better. We did not do a ridiculous voice or mannerisms.”

And Trump makes a strong villain. Gleeson, who initially resisted accepting the role, does not dismiss him as stupid. “You’d never call a mob boss an idiot,” Ray said. “Brendan is a brilliant actor with incredible physicality. Most important, he’s fearless. He was worried [how it would be received.] That’s why he’s sitting in Dublin right now not doing press. He knows how much blowback there’s going to be. He’s hiding under a rock 8,000 miles from here.”

Comey got the shakes when he sat in a director’s chair on the set during the filming of his one-on-one dinner scene with Trump. “I was about to throw up on my shoes,” he said, “sitting in the dark as they recreated what I lived in a way I found very disturbing. I found it really difficult to relive…it hit me like a wave.”

He recalled how his mind raced as he asked himself, “‘How do I protect the FBI? What do I say?’ I was trying to maintain distance. ‘How do I do that now?’ Watching that scene, Jeff doesn’t say anything, but you can see the turmoil by looking at his eyes and the way he’s holding his jaw.”

“You’ve ruined my day,” he told Daniels. “You brought back the struggle, the awkwardness.”

“That’s my job in a nutshell,” Daniels said, “without saying a lot, to show you all that. If the guy I’m playing saw it, touchdown! I’m there.”

Jeff Daniels and Brendan Gleeson play James Comey and Donald Trump in “The Comey Rule.”

It was the plan to air late “The Comey Rule” in May or June, but some higher-ups at Showtime parent Viacom decided to air the series after the election. Ray objected, saying that the cast delivered spectacular performances, notably Daniels. After his letter of apology to his cast was leaked to The New York Times, Showtime redated the series. “We wanted the world to see the biggest number you can get,” Ray said, “to air it before the election was white hot, a lot of eyeballs. After it’s an historical artifact you don’t get as many.”

Comey remains surprised that 53 Republicans, members of U.S. Senate, “took the oath to support the Constitution and twisted it,” he said, referring to the vote on the second count of impeachment towards Trump, that of Obstruction of Congress. “They told themselves a story, that ‘the American people need me, and if I stand up, I might lose a primary, or deprive the American people of my services.’ We have to remember what goes on so that it isn’t repeated.”

In case anyone was wondering, Comey is endorsing Joe Biden. “A new Attorney General will work to restore commitment to values,” he said.

“The rule of law is on the ballot as well,” Daniels said. “If we don’t have that we are no longer the America we keep telling everybody that we are.”

“The Comey Rule” airs its second episode Monday, September 28 at 9 p.m. ET on Showtime. The limited series will then be available to stream in full on Showtime.

Was Larissa Dos Santos Lima Fired From ’90 Day Fiancé’?




After three seasons and multiple arrests, 90 Day Fiancé star Larissa Dos Santos Lima claims she was let go from the TLC franchise. The 34-year-old announced the news on social media over the weekend, maintaining that her recent lingerie show on website CamSoda led to the firing.
