Cardi B Posts BTS Video of Normani on 'WAP' Dancing with 'Motivation'

SNEAK PEEK

Cardi B's giving a lot of love to one of the famous female faces that appeared in her new music video -- giving fans a sneak peak at Normani's viral dance moves.

CB posted a video Saturday that showed behind-the-scenes footage of how the video for her new single 'WAP' was shot -- especially the dance solos featured by several different women ... including Fifth Harmony's Normani, who had the internet ablaze with her sexy number.

Turns out, the whole thing was shot on a green screen with the main song playing in the background. It's funny though ... Cardi was singing the lyrics to Normani's own song, "Motivation," over the 'WAP' beat -- giving her a little extra juice/hype for the performance.

Normani also posted incredible photo stills from the shoot -- and naturally, her fans (and her contemporaries) loved it. Her cameo was definitely one of the more notable standouts, according to Twitter anyway. Other appearances weren't as well-received, unfortunately.

As we reported ... the whole idea behind 'WAP' was women empowerment -- that's why Cardi and Meg had cameos from a bunch of different famous ladies across the entertainment industry, in an attempt to show solidarity.

Regardless of how some folks felt about each and every face that showed up, the video has proven to be a smash hit. It's got 42 million-plus views already, and it's steady climbing.

Battle in Belgium Rowdy Beach-Goers Fight Off Cops ... Umbrellas Become Weapons!!!

BEACH BRAWL

Americans are far from the only ones going stir-crazy -- because chaos can be found anywhere these days ... notably, Belgium, where cops are fighting their own citizens.

Check out this insane brouhaha that broke out Saturday at a Blankenberge beach -- where cops were sent in to break up a crowd of young'ns who were sitting on the breakwater ... this after a lifeguard had told them to scram since it was prohibited.

Welp, when the cops showed ... all hell broke loose. The video picks up right in the middle of the action -- officers were creeping upon beach-goers with batons drawn and face masks on, but the crowd was quick to strike back early and often ... against the cops and even against themselves.

You see some people trying to stop the violence, to no avail. People are hurling beach chairs and umbrella poles and umbrellas. Speaking of the latter, watch how one guy straight up swings a giant beach umbrella at a cop, who doesn't flinch.

Rules and order ... a thing of the past in 2020, it seems.

Kanye West Open Your Wallets Democrats and Republicans ... 'Cause Here's What You Get with Me

Kanye West wants you to donate to his campaign so he can become the 46th POTUS, and he's making the pitch by laying out his positions on various issues, and one thing's clear ... he's playing to both Democrats and Republicans.

Ye, who calls his platform, "Creating a Culture of Life," is seeking contributions ranging from $20 to a grand. As for his positions, the first is revealing ... "Restore faith and revive our Constitutional commitment to freedom of religion and the free exercise of one's faith, demonstrated by restoring prayer in the classroom including spiritual foundations."

That seems to be a cornerstone of his campaign ... freedom of religion, which for him includes a hard-line, antiabortion stance. This position clearly targets Republican voters.

But, then he pivots to the Dems, promising to reduce household debt and student loan debt. He also wants to restructure the educational system, by opening it up to "at-risk and vulnerable populations."

He takes a stand on policing, promoting policies that "treat all Americans the same, regardless of race, color, or ethnicity." And, he promises to protect the environment by promoting clean air and water as well as renewables.

And, then he pivots back to Republican voters, promising to "place Americans' best interest first and foremost." He also vows to "Maintain a strong national defense."

Kanye says he's not a spoiler ... he's in it to win it. This turn shows he's trying to win votes by traversing party lines.

Again ... in a close election, he could make a difference. The question ... who would he help and who would he hurt?

Nick Cannon Kanye's Got My Vote!!!

Exclusive
KANYE FOR PRESIDENT
@LionsShareNews

Nick Cannon says America needs another Black man in the White House ... that's why he's team Kanye 2020.

Nick was at LAX Friday when the photog asked him what he thought of Ye's run. Answer: "I love it!"

Now, the photog took it a step further and asked if he'll still be with Kanye when he casts his ballot, and Nick gave the semi-emphatic "Yes." We say semi because there's clearly a slight smirk.

On another subject ... Nick was asked about his recent troubles over some anti-Semitic comments. Nick has been earnest in attempting to educate himself ... even meeting with rabbis.

Viacom gave Nick his walking papers for "Wild 'N Out" ... so the photog asked if he felt "cancel culture" was out of control. Nick's answer was genius ... it shouldn't be cancel culture, it should be counsel culture.

Kanye and North West Let's Do a Dance-Off!!! ... Kim Shoots Video and Laughs Hard

THANK GOD IT'S FRI-YE

Kanye West and Kim Kardashian have had a rough few months, but there's still room for joy ... and that's exactly what they got when North busted a move, to the delight of her parents.

The family is in the Caribbean as Kim and Kanye try and work on their marriage, but on Friday night Ye was singing "Push The Feeling On" and then jumped out of his golf cart and started dancing. North then followed suit, jumping off the golf cart and joining in.

Kim's shooting the vid and she's laughing hard as Kanye and North do their dance-off. North jumps back in the golf cart as Ye runs alongside it.

Kanye posted the video Friday night, declaring, "IT’S FRI-YE-YE!!!"

We broke the story, Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are staying in a fortress-like estate with their kids to work on their marriage. Kanye has been active in his political campaign this week, posting campaign messages as his team tries to gather signatures to qualify for the ballot in a number of states.

Katy Perry I'm Pregnant, but I Can Still Bust 'Friday' Dance Moves!!!

BUSTIN' A MOVE

Katy Perry is a week or 2 from giving birth, which makes this video all the more impressive as she accepts Orlando Bloom's challenge to show everyone her moves.

It was Friday, after all, so Orlando challenged Katy to dance to the beat of "Push The Feeling On" by Nightcrawlers.

Katy, who's in the car with her fiance, jumps out, raises her shirt and reveals an impressive baby bump ... then shows off some moves that others who are 8 1/2 months pregnant might not do so effortlessly.

Good to see Orlando laughing. As we reported, his beloved dog died a few weeks back, and it really tore him up.

Libertarian Candidate Jo Jorgensen Bitten by Bat ... Cancels Campaign Appearance

The Libertarian Party's candidate for President has been sidelined .... 'cause she was bit by a bat.

Jo Jorgensen had a rally scheduled in Louisiana but she had to cancel, because somewhere on the campaign trail a bat took a bite out of her. She announced, "I will not be able to attend the campaign rally tomorrow morning ... I will be getting a rabies vaccine as a precaution after having been bitten by a bat near the start of this campaign tour!"

It's no laughing matter ... these shots are supposedly super painful, but life-saving because bats can be carriers of rabies. People who contract rabies and don't get the vaccine have virtually no chance of survival.

Jorgensen, btw, is a psychologist and university lecturer. Her campaign positions oppose the right to sue firearms manufacturers in cases where gun violence was committed by someone who never should have possessed a firearm.

Dana White Still In Talks with Mayweather ... Fight 'Very Possible'

Exclusive
STAYIN' IN TOUCH
TMZSports.com

Dana White says he's still talking with Floyd Mayweather about working together on another combat sports event -- telling TMZ Sports, "We're interested on both sides."

Of course, Floyd made a handshake deal with Dana back in 2019 to set up a fight involving the UFC.

But, all of Floyd's fight plans came to a screeching halt in 2020 following a series of personal tragedies and the COVID-19 pandemic.

We're told Floyd was left reeling after both his ex, Josie Harris, and his uncle, Roger Mayweather, died in the span of a week ... and fighting was the last thing on his mind.

Now, however, Dana says he's talking with Floyd ... and a possible collaboration is far from dead.

"Floyd and I still have dialogue and go back and forth. We're still interested on both sides."

White added an event is still "very possible."

So, who's the opponent? A boxing rematch with Conor McGregor perhaps?

"No no no. I know he would rematch Conor McGregor but I don't know if you heard about this but Conor McGregor's retired," White says.

McGregor announced his retirement from MMA back in June claiming he's lost his passion for the sport -- but no one really believes him ... except maybe Dana?!

"When I'm doing things right now and running business, I don't even think about Conor. Conor is retired. As of right here now today, Conor is retired until Conor tells me differently, I'm not trying to make any fights for Conor."

When challenged about Conor's true career plans, White explained it this way ...

"He is retired right now. He's not fighting. So, per my contract with fighters, I owe them three fights a year. If I do not deliver three fights a year, I have to pay them their money. Conor McGregor is retired."

Get it?
