Check out the most entertaining moments from her visit on Fallon. Watch Cardi's full entertaining video with Jimmy Fallon above.
1. When she discussed how she arrived at the name Cardi B. Of course, longtime fans have heard this story before—her sister's name is "Hennessey" and her name was "Bacardi B" at first, which she used on Instagram. "But for some reason my Instagram kept getting deleted... I think it was Bacardi that had something to do with it," she reasoned, to the delight of the crowd.
2. When she said she's only buying Christmas presents for adults this year. "I got new godkids outta nowhere. Once you start making money, everybody wants you to be their kid's godmother or somethin'."
3. When she told the cameraman not to zoom in on the huge engagement ring she got from Offset because her hand might be ashy. "Don't get too close. I didn't put no lotion on my hand," she warned. "It's winter time."
4. When she said that whether she wins a Grammy or not, she already feels like a winner. "What's good?"
