Ellen DeGeneres is no stranger to sexy Halloween costumes. In the past, she's dressed up as the Kardashians and Nicki Minaj, but this year, she tapped into her inner Cardi B for this year's costume: "Cardi E."
Coming out to greet her audience, Ellen was dressed in a risqué black leather and fringe outfit inspired by Cardi B's character Diamond in this year's Hustlers movie. She explained, "My costume, this year, is a tribute to Cardi B's character in the movie Hustlers. I can't be Cardi B — I'm Cardi E. E is for Ellen, it's also my bra size. This outfit has a whole lot going on from every angle."
She continued, "It was actually a lot to get me dressed like this. There's wardrobe, there's hair and makeup, and a special thanks to the people at Goodyear for inflating me."
Later on, while revealing she had been practicing her "okurrrs" backstage, the actual Cardi B appeared to "okurrr" along with her.
Since Cardi E is inspired by Diamond, DeGeneres decided to show off her twerking skills for the rapper, who gave some pointers herself. Showing Ellen her movies, she explained, "That'll get you a couple of bucks right there. I'll give you twenty dollars, I would buy a lap dance from you."
On Instagram, Cardi B showed a sneak peek of her interview with
