Lol, What? Cardi B Thanks Tom Petty For Sending Her Flowers At 2019 Grammys, Doesn’t Seem To Realize He Died In 2017
It was a huge night at the 2019 Grammys for Cardi B. She won her first Grammy when her Invasion of Privacy was named Best Rap Album. After accepting the award, she went on Instagram to announce she was sharing the award with Mac Miller, who was also nominated.
She also went on her Instagram Story and posted a short clip showing a huge floral arrangement she received. There was a card inside the arrangement, which read, “You’ve got a heart so big it could crush this town,” using lyrics from one of Tom Petty’s songs.
Apparently, Cardi took the quote to mean Tom Petty was the one who sent her the flowers, which would be impossible because he’s been dead since 2017.
Thank you, Tom Petty, for the flowers. I left the room, but, um … and the flowers were very big. I want to say thank you so much, and this is such a beautiful note. Motherf—kers love me, bro.
She deleted the clip a short time later after people started pointing out her error. Many of her fans thought it was hilarious.
So the quote is from Tom Petty but Cardi B thought the gift was from Tom Petty. Tom Petty is dead 😩— WE THE CHOSEN (@Mayor___) February 11, 2019

I guess it’s hard to keep track of everyone who has been dying these past few years, especially when you’ve been busy performing in front of millions of people, recording tracks, catching your boyfriend cheating on you multiple times, giving birth, buying your mom a house, etc.
She gets a pass this time.
