Rapper Cardi B has opened up about her married life with Migos member Offset as well as what set off her confrontation with fellow femcee Nicki Minaj at NYFW.
The 25-year-old “Be Careful” rapper revealed what led to the melee between her and Minaj in a new interview with W magazine.
“For a while now she’s been taking a lot of shots at me,” she tells the publication. “I spoke to her twice before, and we came to an understanding. But she kept it going.”
According to Cardi, the last straw was when Minaj apparently liked — then unliked — a tweet that criticized Cardi’s mothering skills.
“I was going to make millions off my Bruno Mars tour, and I sacrificed that to stay with my daughter,” Cardi says. “I love my daughter. I’m a good-ass f**king mom. So for somebody that don’t have a child to like that comment? So many people want to say that party wasn’t the time or the place, but I’m not going to catch another artist in the grocery store or down the block.”
During the W magazine interview, Cardi also discussed married life with Offset.
“When I got married with my dude, we still had a lot of doubts, because our relationship is not like everybody’s,” she explains. “He was always traveling, and I was always traveling. We’re artists. So I used to see him, like, twice a week, and, you know, he’s known for having different women, and I’m known for, like, not taking sh** from guys. But we really loved each other, and we was scared to lose each other.”
The “I Like It” hitmaker revealed that the two decided to get married one day when they were in the middle of an argument and she said they should go for it.
“And he’s like, ‘You’re playing around.’ And I said, ‘I’m for real,'” she shares.
The lovebirds went on to get a marriage license and exchange vows in Offset’s bedroom while wearing sweatpants.
“Every single day there’s rumors about me and my dude. And it almost drives me crazy, because I start to believe them,” she continues. “I don’t have no proof. I don’t have receipts. But I just got to know my man. We practically on the phone 24 hours a day. If I can’t find him, I’m going to find his friend. Somebody going to answer the phone. But I cannot be feeling insecure to a point that I would drive my dude away, because these people want that to happen.”
Cardi also opened up about her pregnancy at the height of her career.
“When I got pregnant, I was f**king freaking out,” she says. “Everybody around me was like, ‘No, this never happened before. Every artist that had a baby, they already put in years in the game. This is your first year. You’re going to mess it up. How are you going to make it?’ While I was pregnant, I kept telling myself, ‘I can’t wait till I’m back out there. I’m going to look hot, and I’m going to be that b**ch.’”
Cardi and Offset welcomed their daughter, Kulture Kiara Cephus, on July 11.
