    What does "cupcake" means in this line?

    Hello.

    I saw the lines in a movie.


    A: I'm not going with him. No offense.

    B: None taken, cupcake. I know you're sweet on the champ.


    Question.


    1: what does "cupcake" means?
    I am not totally sure if it's just one way of calling smo. But, I was just wondering
    when or in which situation a native speaker say a word "cupcake" ? Is it an offensive word?

    2. "On the champ" Is it a kind of idiom? Could you tell me what that means?


    Thank you so much for talking the time and helping me out!

    'Cupcake' is used here as a term of endearment like 'love', 'honey', 'sweetie-pie'',

    She is sweet on the champ(ion) - she is in love with the champion. That, one assumes, is why she is not going with the other man.

    Hi, fivejedjon.

    Thank you for the comment ^_^

    I am curious "Champion" could indicate that her boyfriend? , If there is also A's boyfriend.. I mean there are three people in this situation. A, B, and A's boyfriend. "Champion" could indicate that her boyfriend?

    Without more context, we have no idea who 'the champ' is.

    I have one more question. What does " Pop Girl" mean in this video? There is a line " Pop Girl's a better watcher than I am."

    Could "pop girl" refer to "Chiness girl"? because the other watcher she's mentioning is a Chiness girl in this video.
