Holmes blush. You have been teasing us about it. Come on, bring it. Reporter: I had to leave some of that stuff on the cutting room floor. Right now, cardi B, Atlanta, the game itself, football players are supposed to be the big stars. She was no doubt giving everybody a run for their money. She was a huge draw here in Atlanta. She admitted to me, all that success and being in demand has taken a toll on her personal life. ?????? Reporter: Cardi B may have turned down the halftime show. But she was still center stage during super bowl week with nothing short of six appearances in Atlanta. Even new England patriots owner Robert Kraft was caught up in cardi B's orbit. She got a chance to shine during the big game as the new face of Pepsi. Cardi B seems to have been everywhere, lately, but home I feel like -- I don't know, I did the parties when I was young. You are young, you're still young. I'm 26 now. I worked almost 24 hours. I'm a mom. At 26. Hey, listen, life changed like that. When you have a baby. Yeah.

Why was this so important and such an uproar. It means so much to you? He's standing up for minorities. They need to understand why he stood up for us. It's crazy. Now, she didn't have any criticism for the artists who did perform in the show. For me it wasn't something that I wanted to do. On that Pepsi ad you saw, she actually held back a little bit. She was a little nervous working with a big brand like Pepsi. She said next time we'll get more about cardi B. What made you blush.
