Cardi B has a very simple question for you, one she poses over and over and over again in the Instagram video below:
YO, she asks, WHAT THE F-CK ARE YOU DOING WITH MY MONEY?!?
The musician is apparently upset because it's tax season and she's coming off the most successful year of her career and, therefore, is facing quite a large tax bill.
Around 40 percent, Cardi says in this footage.
Which means she's in the upper echelon of money-makers in the entire country, but which also means Uncle Sam is owed a pretty penny or several dozen.
"I want to know what you do with my f-cking tax money because, you know what I’m saying like, when you donate to a kid from a foreign country, they give you updates of what they’re doing in another nation," the singer says.
She then runs down a bunch of ways in which she knows this money is NOT being spent.
For example, the streets of her native New York are "always dirty," Cardi B says, and "there's still rats on the damn trains."
She also called out the government for the amount of funding they allocate towards prisons, alleging the money gives inmates "like two underwears [and] one jumpsuit for, like, five months."
So, Cardi asks once more:
Where the eff is her money going?!?!?!?
"What is y'all doing with my f-cking money?" she asks. "I want to know. I want receipts. I want everything."
The artist, who may be pregnant with her first child, also touched on the whole tax issue late last year.
At that time, she posted another video in which she asked fans to hold off on sending her any checks, arguing that "mother fc-king IRS" was "coming for me for tax season."
This time around, she concludes by screaming:
I want to know what ya’ll ni–as doing with my f–king money… Uncle Sam, I want to know what the f-ck you’re doing with my mother f-cking money.
Well, Sam, go ahead: Answer the woman!

On Thursday, following reports that they were drifting apart, Donald Trump Jr. and Vanessa Trump filed for divorce. But theirs isn’t the only Trump marriage that may teeter on the precipice.
Donald Trump allegedly had an affair with porn star Stormy Daniels while married to Melania. In addition to the personal embarrassment, the steps he allegedly took to cover it up may have violated campaign finance law.
Now, Stormy is trying to tell her story — and she’s trying to raise money from the American public to do it.
Stormy Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, may be a successful porn director who’s made paid appearances and done endorsement deals.
She’s suing Trump because she wants to be able to tell her story to the American public without incurring a $ 1 million penalty.
Lawsuits are expensive, even when you’re successful — and even when you were paid $ 130,000 in hush money to sign an NDA.
Stormy offered to refund the money, but Trump and his attorneys did not accept it by the deadline, which means that Stormy will have to sue.
There are multiple reasons for which the NDA might be void, including the attorney speaking of it and Trump having never signed it.
But to prove that case in court, Stormy is going to need money to pay attorney fees.
Her mission statement, posted where she’s raising funds, is simple:
“I am attempting to speak honestly and openly to the American people about my relationship with now President Donald Trump and the intimidation and tactics used against me.”
So far, Stormy Daniels’ crowdjustice page has raised over $ 150,000 in just a few days. She has 27 days remaining.
People are often leery of crowdfunding drives, but Stormy wants to clear the air.
“There is a lot of misinformation out there regarding the funds being raised on this site.”
She’s not asking people to give her money for personal use.
“First, I want to be clear as to what this money is NOT being raised for. This money is not going to me personally. Ever.”
It’s going directly into a legal fund.
“It is only being used to cover the legal expenses and potential damages I describe on the home page. If the money is not needed, it will be used pursuant to the crowdjustice guidelines on unused funds as with all other cases on their site.”
So no, this is not some moneygrab, folks.
“In other words, I am not going to pocket any money. The money is being controlled at all times by my attorneys in a trust account.”
Stormy has another thing that she wants to clear up.
Understandably, some folks may be hesitant about leaving the name of a world-famous porn star on their bills.
She says that this will not happen.
“Second, if you donate, your donation merely appears as a donation to ‘Crowd Justice’ on your bank or credit card statement.”
The stigma associated with sex workers can even extend to the people who pay them. That’s sad, but won’t impact people donating to help her pay attorney fees.
“There is no reference to Stormy Daniels or Stephanie Clifford.”
And, of course, she offers her thanks.
“Thank you for continuing to support me.”
Unfortunately, Stormy has more than just an expensive legal battle on her hands.
CNN reports that her attorney, Michael Avenatti, says that Stormy Daniels was physically threatened to keep quiet about her Trump affair.
Avenatti cannot disclose details at present, so he cannot say whether the person who threatened her was someone closely affiliated with Trump.
He does, however, hope that Stormy will be able to tell the whole story to everyone in the near future.
“She’s going to be able to provide very specific details about what happened here.”
Stormy Daniels’ 60 Minutes interview is scheduled to air later in March. Perhaps she will be able to say something more, though the full details of her Trump affair would still be suppressed by the NDA.
Ultimately, Stormy Daniels hopes to be able to directly discuss the Trump affair on talk shows.
Not only will it be good to clear the air (and boost her brand), but guests get paid for their appearances.
In the mean time, however, she can’t disregard the binding NDA simply because it’s probably void. She has to prove that in court.
Raising money from the American people is smart. Trump seems to be the least popular President in history, and a lot of people are happy to see him publicly embarrassed.
Will this story be his downfall? Probably not, since none of his much more serious words and actions seem to have left him vulnerable so far.
But plenty of Americans are willing to be satisfied with his public humiliation — and they’re willing to pay to see it.
The Duggar family is rich. Jim Bob made his fortune through real estate investments, and after all of their reality television ups and downs, he's worth over $ 3 million.
But 19 Kids and Counting isn't on television anymore, and Counting On doesn't rake in the same kind of money. But this family of over 30 members has found another revenue stream.
Fans believe that the Duggars are engaging in Instagram ads, like so many other reality stars.
Curiously, they don't seem to tag what appear to be product endorsements — usually of food — as #ads, but these posts are not subtle. At all.
Perhaps the Duggars are violating FTC regulations because they believe that they're above secular laws.
It's possible that they're just getting free products, but the volume of the posts seems to indicate to some fans that the Duggars must be getting paid for these promotions.
Take a look:
1. First of all, the Duggars LOVE Chick-fil-A
2. There’s a difference betwen Instagramming your meal …
3. Even Josh Duggar’s gotten in on the action
4. But the Duggars love more than just one restaurant that fits their brand
5. Derick helps out with these alleged promotions, too
6. Not the worst thing that we’ve seen in an IHOP parking lot…
