Cardi B thanked Tom Petty for a bouquet of flowers after the Grammys on Sunday night, apparently forgetting that the singer passed away in 2017.
Cardi B made history this weekend as the first female rapper to win Best Rap Album at the Grammy Awards. She was overjoyed at the accomplishment, and spent much of the night posting her typical videos on Instagram. This included a now-deleted clip on her Instagram Story where she showed off a note that came with some flowers she had received.
“You’ve got a heart so big it could crush this town,” read the message, quoting Petty’s song “Walls (Circus).” Cardi B thought that Petty himself had sent the flowers, either forgetting or not knowing at all that he had passed away two years before.
“Thank you, Tom Petty, for the flowers,” she said in the video. “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—ers love me, bro.”
