Despite the love Cardi B has been receiving about her recent engagement to the Migos’ Offset, many on social media feel their relationship is fake.
These people feel this relationship is nothing more than a stunt to promote Cardi B, who is signed to Atlantic Records. Many expressed these opinions on social media. They’ve even directly called out Cardi by her Twitter handle about it.
Well, it looks like Cardi has had enough. In one reply to someone on Twitter, she directly called these claims false in her own way.
Despite this, Cardi posted the following to her Instagram account, expecting more hate on Social Media.In a recent interview with Rolling Stone, Cardi B also made it clear that her romance with Offset is the real deal.
Rolling Stone writes:
Yesterday, Cardi turned 25. She took a rare day off, hanging with her entire family – sister, parents, cousins – at her mother’s house. But she missed her boyfriend (now fiancé), Offset of Migos, who was touring in Australia. “I was sad, because it’s like, ‘Oh, my gosh, I’m not getting no d*ck on my birthday,'” says Cardi, whose bedazzled acrylic nails are decorated with tiny reproductions of Offset paparazzi shots. “But I wasn’t going to get d*ck on my birthday anyway, because I got my period.”
She finds a cleanser she can deal with and hops into the shower, before slipping into a bright-red spacesuit-inspired Milano di Rouge jumpsuit, complete with a yellow patch that reads “Safe s*x saves lives,” part of the designer’s anti-HIV initiative. She glances at it and arches her eyebrows. “Girl,” she says, “I don’t even use a condom.”
Cardi also told the publication that she’s nervous her debut album could end up flopping:
The pressure is building. Her once-carefree social-media presence has drifted toward moody reflections about the downsides of fame. She’s stressed about creating a debut album – the very word “album” makes her wince – that can live up to “Bodak Yellow” and the best of her mixtape tracks, not to mention the challenge of creating singles that can keep her on the charts and avoid one-hit-wonderdom. There is a chorus of doubters in her head, she acknowledges, and it sounds something like this: “Can she make another hit, can she make another hit?”
She fears failure, and paints a vivid picture of what it might look like: “If you go broke and lose your career, it’s bad – and everybody is talkin’ sh*t about it! At least if you lose your 9-to-5 you don’t got millions of people judging you and talking sh*t while you lost your job.”
And when it comes to those who say she isn’t black, this is what she told the publication:
“It gets to the point that you ask yourself, ‘Damn, what the f*ck am I?'”
The interview is pretty interesting because she also admitted that she kind of wishes she could rap about deeper subjects like Kendrick Lamar and J. Cole. However, she doesn’t think she could succeed doing so.
