Letting 'Em Know
Despite being hit with a few scandals, Cardi B is still on top of the game. Though hip-hop’s latest favorite is constantly sharing herself and her experiences with her fans on social media, outlets love meeting up with her to ask more in-depth questions.
The Jasmine Brand shared some snippets of Cardi’s latest interview and the “Bodak Yellow” rapper spilled all on celeb life so far and her naysayers.
“The Celebrity Thing to Do”
Getting right into the meat and potatoes of the interview, Cardi B spoke directly to her “haters,” letting them know that she dislikes them just as much as they dislike her. “I always talk about the haters; I am always going to talk about the them because I hate them. I hate you all,” the starlet said when asked about people who give her destructive criticism. “I wish you all catch something.”
The rapper, who is known for consistently engaging with her social media followers, then spoke on why she feels the need to respond to her fans, followers, and naysayers. Before saying that ignoring comments “is the celebrity thing to do,” Cardi said she’s “not too f**king cool” to respond to people who “talk s**t about me like you know me.”
“This is not easy; my career was not given to me,” she added.
“It is people out there who really think they know you and they really do not know you. I be hearing crazy rumors about me and like every two weeks I am pregnant,” the New York native continued. Cardi — who broke a record after seeing three hits on the Billboard 100 Top 10 at once — then revealed that people speaking badly about her looks hurts her feelings the most.
“I feel like every woman hates when people say something mean about their looks,” she stated. “Women do not ever want to feel ugly.”
Before saying that Atlantic Records signed her because her mixtapes performed well, the artist added, “Sometimes people want to make me feel like I am wack or I do not know how to do this or I do not know how to do that. If I did not I wouldn’t have a number one record.”
The Silver Lining
The “La Modelo” artist didn’t just focus on the dark side of fame. She recapped some of the perks, too, citing her newly-bought Bentley Truck. Young Belcalis Almanzar didn’t have much before her stardom, so when it came time to buy her first car, it had to be lit. Fittingly, Cardi bought herself a tangerine orange Bentley. According to the artist, just owning a car is huge achievement for her.
“[For] somebody who took the train their whole life to have a car, is a big thing to have a luxury car is like ‘ohh snap!’ I be looking at my car sometimes and be like, ‘I cannot believe this is my car and I cannot believe I bought it!’” she shared.
