David Lee Roth Reacts To Cardi B’s Much-Debated Grammy Performance
Former Van Halen frontman David Lee Roth shared a post on his official Twitter page revealing a brand new drawing from his ‘Soggy Bottom’ comic series and this time it’s about the sensational performance of Cardi B of her hit song ‘WAP’ at this year’s Grammy Awards show.
As many of you know, ‘WAP’ is a song recorded by famous rapper Cardi B, featuring vocals from another rapper Megan Thee Stallion which was released on August 7, 2020, as the lead single from Cardi’s upcoming second studio album. The song received extreme success as it debuted at number one on the Billboard Hot 100, and broke the record for the largest opening streaming week for a song in United States history.
The accompanying music video which features cameos from several well-known female celebrities, including fashion mogul Kylie Jenner, singers Normani and Rosalía, and numerous rappers, has been described as a confident display of women who demonstrate their sexual courage, therefore, using their own sexuality the way they want.
The ‘WAP’ music video also broke the record for the biggest 24-hour debut for an all-female collaboration on YouTube and it has nearly 400 million views currently. Thanks to the massive success of the song, a performance from the musicians for the 2021 Grammy Awards show was quite inevitable.
The live performance of ‘WAP’ at this year’s Grammys was epic as Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion had the biggest bed on stage on which the duo danced quite like in the music video and they even had a gigantic high heel as a dance pole in which there was also two dancers.
While the whole world still has been talking about that performance, David Lee Roth also shared a post on his official Twitter page revealing that he turned the Grammy performance of ‘WAP’ into the subject of his artwork. Roth stated in his ‘Soggy Bottom’ artwork that he humorously thinks the capitals stand for ‘Wings and Pizza.’
Here is what Roth said:
“Nothin’ but W.A.P. for David Lee Roth
He thinks it means ‘Wings and Pizza.'”
