- The rapper is set to star in a new comedy from Paramount Pictures called Assisted Living where she will play the character of Amber
- Cardi's role will be that of a small-time thief who needs to hide from the police and does so in her grandmother's nursing home
Cardi B is officially a leading lady after Paramount Pictures announced that she would be starring in the lead role of their new film Assisted Living.
The rapper started out on the VH1 reality show Love and Hip-Hop and is now a Grammy award-winning artist who is recognised all over the world.
Cardi has now set her sights on the film industry and will be playing the lead character of the comedy that is set to be hilarious and "full of heart".
Variety.com described the plot of the film after speaking to Paramount Pictures and wrote:
"It follows Amber (Cardi B's character), a small-time crook who finds herself in over her head when a heist goes wrong. On the run from the cops and her former crew, she struggles to find anywhere to hide. Running out of options, Amber disguises herself as an elderly woman and hides out in the one place no one will look — her estranged grandmother’s nursing home."
Cardi had previously acted in Hustlers alongside Jennifer Lopez but the new movie will be the first time she takes on the role of a leading lady.
In other international celebrity-related news, Briefly.co.za recently reported on Michael Jordan uploading a romantic video for his girlfriend Lori Harvey's birthday.
The internet has not fully recovered from the news of Michael B. Jordan and Lori Harvey officially confirming their relationship on Instagram but there is already a development in the story. Jordan took to social media to wish his stunning girlfriend a happy birthday and uploaded a video which showed them being a typical couple in a snowy location.
The video shows both Jordan and Harvey wrapped up in winter coats and boots to keep warm but the sparks flying between them seem hot enough to have done that.
The lovebirds playfully throw snow at each other and giggle all the way through. Michael seems besotted with his bae and cannot tear his eyes away from her. The footage then shows Harvey mockingly tackle Jordan to the ground and they both collapse into the snow.
Michael posted the video to social media with a short caption accompanied by a tortoise emoji.
Lori, TV host Steve Harvey's daughter, commented on the birthday post and wrote:
Fans are very invested in the relationship and are eagerly awaiting the next update from the celebrity lovebirds.
Briefly.co.za also reported on the couple making their relationship Instagram official and the internet collectively went crazy about the People's Sexiest Man Alive being off the market.
