She's brash, she's loud, and America is all in for her special brand of sass, from online feuds to strip club brawls.

Plus, she took home her very first Grammy for Best Rap Album for Invasion Of Privacy.

And she accepted the trophy with signature, unfiltered charm.

"I'm sorry, I just, oh the nerves are so bad", she said. "Maybe I need to start smoking weed", she quipped, to laughs and applause from the glitzy gala set.

Trump won’t meet Xi before trade deal deadline
Lighthizer and Chinese Vice Premier Liu He met last week in Washington for trade talks. The S&P 500 Index market worth dropped by 0.93 percent, the biggest drop in 2 weeks.

Grande's late ex-boyfriend, Mac Miller, was posthumously nominated in the same category for his final album "Swimming." While Migos rapper and husband Offset-born Kiari Kendrell Cephus-appeared to be cheering his wife on from the audience, it seems he was also making money moves of his own. The malfunction, which can be seen at the 3:10 mark in the video below, shows Cardi's necklace unclasping before it flies off her body. "I remember a year ago, a lot of people were like, 'You're going to win, ' but then I didn't", she told the Associated Press. "Rest in peace!" She went on to shout out her choreographer and glam team, and yell "Bronx in the building!" at the top of her lungs.

It was a bold gamble given her lack of experience, but her love of spectacle and fast-talking style helped ensure it paid off. Prior to Cardi B's win, the only other woman to win got her award in 1997, when the hip-hop group Fugees, which included Lauryn Hill, won Best Rap Album for The Score. The little one had already mastered calling Offset "papa" so hearing her name was a huge moment for her 7-month-old baby.

Packed with behind-the-scenes footage of Offset laying down tracks in the studio, performing on stage for sold-out shows and Facetiming his son, the first half of the teaser gives an intimate look at the rapper's journey to the album.
