If Cardi B ever fancies a career change, we have a feeling that she would excel as a comedienne…

The rapper played quite the practical joke on the audience – including her very own husband Offset, no less – after she opened last night’s MTV VMAs.

The Bodak Yellow rapper pranked the world when she showed up on stage with a bundle of pink blankets, which we all thought was new baby Kulture Kiari.

However, her baby daughter was nowhere in sight, as Cardi B was actually hiding a Moon Person trophy under all those blankets instead. She sure had us fooled!

Cardi B even managed to fool husband Offset, who didn’t appear to see the funny side…

 “Set said ‘I was sooo mad, when I saw you on stage with that blanket. I thought you was going to show Kulture,’” Cardi B said on Twitter when the show ended.

As well as pulling off the wonderful prank, Cardi B had another reason to smile last night as she walked away with a whopping three awards – including the coveted Best New Artist gong.

“I’m so happy to receive this award,” she said as she accepted her Best New Artist award.

“A couple of months ago a lot of people were saying, ‘You’re gambling your career! You’re about to have a baby, what are you doing?’

“And you know, I carried the baby, I had the baby, and now I’m still winning awards!”

We couldn’t have put it better ourselves.

Musician, mother, and practical joker extraordinaire… what a woman!
