Rapper Cardi B is the cover star for the April issue of Cosmopolitan and she opened up on her life, career, and relationship. On remaining the same Cardi she was before fame, the Bodak Yellow crooner said;
“Everybody got different beliefs and different religions and were raised differently, yet you also supposed to be careful you don’t offend somebody. Everybody gets bothered about everything,” she told Cosmo. “Everybody got a f–king opinion about you. If I change myself, then I’m going to lose myself, and I won’t be who makes me happy.”
On defending fiancee Offset following a lyric from YFN Lucci and Offset’s collab “Boss Life” been seen as homophobic, she said;
“I’m not going to let somebody call him ‘homophobic’ when I know that he’s not,” Cardi said during a Periscope live stream. “And I’m saying this because I seen him around these … around gays, and he treats them with the same respect he treats everybody. He never acts uncomfortable and he just don’t care.”
On handling the cheating scandal her relationship has been plagued with;
“It’s like everybody is coming down my neck like, ‘Why are you not leaving him? You have low self-esteem.’ I don’t have low self-esteem … I know I look good. I know I’m rich, I know I’m talented. I know I could get any man I want—any basketball player, football player.
But I want to work out my shit with my man, and I don’t got to explain why,” she said, adding that it’s ultimately up to her to decide how she wants to move forward in the relationship although she knows he’s in the wrong.
“It’s not right, what he f–king did — but people don’t know what I did, ’cause I ain’t no angel.”
