Cardi B Covers Vogue / Talks Music, Motherhood, Universal Healthcare & Slams Prostitution Claims

Published: Monday 9th Dec 2019 by David

Cardi B and Vogue USA?

Hit the link below to learn all about the groundbreaking achievement…

The Hip-Hop starlet owns the cover of the fashion publication’s January edition with help from her baby Kulture and uses her time with the magazine to share her thoughts on her life as it is today, her legacy, motherhood and the new sounds she has been building for the next decade.

On her winning streak?

I thought ‘Press’ was fun and it was gangsta, and then because it didn’t perform as good as my other songs, people was like, Oh, she’s a flop; oh, she’s dying out. This whole year has just been a lot for me. I feel like people are just so tired of me winning. I will look for my name on Twitter, and it’s like hate tweets, hate tweets, hate tweets.

She admits that she is keen for her second studio album to soar commercially because of this…and is working on an sharing a softer side of herself with the public.

The first time it was just me being myself. I didn’t even care if people was gonna like it or not. When I found out I did so good, I’m like, is this a big number? Everybody was like, yes, this is a huge number. So it’s scary because it’s like, now you got to top your first album, and then it’s like, damn. I wonder if people are gonna relate to the new things, to the new life, to the new shit that I gotta talk about now. Music is changing. I feel like people just wanna hear twerk-twerk music, but it’s like, is that just a phase? I probably need a sexy song. I need a lot of turn-up songs. I need a slow song, a personal song. And those are harder for me—I always need help when it comes to talking about my feelings. It’s hard for me to be soft, period. So it’s a lot of thoughts, a lot of pressure. It’s really like a job.

Why she resents claims that she was once a lady of the night.

I just hate when people be like, oh, you used to be a stripper, so you’re a prostitute, you used to sleep with guys. I never used to sleep with guys. The thing about it is, when you’re known as a stripper that sleeps with guys for money, everybody hates you because you’re messing up the game. You’re making guys expect more than what you should be giving, and the next bitch pays for it. I don’t have to give guys no ass. You want something from me? I want something from you. I want your money, you want my time. So I’m just gonna give you time. Once you start expecting more, my phone number’s disconnected. Bye.

 

On universal healthcare….

Why is this such a successful country and we don’t have Medicare for everyone? It’s like, how are people gonna work if they’re sick? People gonna  be paying forever. And we don’t have freaking free schools? That discourages people to want to go to school if you gotta pay for it. Especially the way that social media makes it seems like everybody is the boss of something. Not everybody can be a boss. People gotta have certain jobs to keep things going. Let’s say I go to school for my job, and my school bill is more than I’m gonna be paid for. Then I’m not gonna want to do that job. So it’s like, who’s gonna do that job? It discourages people from wanting to learn.

 

She had this to say about her efforts to balance motherhood with a thriving career in music…

 

I could shake my ass, I could be the most ratchet-est person ever, I could get into a fight tomorrow, but I’m still a great mom. All the time I’m thinking about my kid. I’m shaking my ass, but at the same time I’m doing business, I’m on the phone with my business manager saying, make sure that a percentage of my check goes to my kid’s trust. I give my daughter so much love, and I’m setting her up for a future. I want to tell her that a lot of the shit that I have done in life—no matter what I did, knowing that I wanted to have kids made me go harder to secure a good future for my kids.

The interview dropped shortly after she launched a tour of West Africa where she met with fans based in Ghana and Nigeria.

    • Dc December 9, 2019

      U mad vogue just don’t throw just anybody on the cover they don’t need press keep hating 👋🏽

  2. Dc December 9, 2019

    First female rapper to ever cover American Vogue you have nothing more to prove queen 👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾

    • Clarksooon December 9, 2019

      False. Bey covered vogue and Bey was rapping way before Cardi. If u think that talk rap thing Bey does is singing check ur ears. Bey been rapping professionally since 2001’s In The Club Remix. I think Camila should be on the cover. Camila should also collaborate with Cardi.

      • Dc December 9, 2019

        Stfu Beyonce is a singer

      • only facts December 9, 2019

        The “Love In This Club” remix came out in 2008, not 2001 you MORON. Sheesh

      • Walter White December 9, 2019

        In Da Club is not Love In This Club. In Da Club remix AKA S*** Lil Thug came out 2001

      • Chica December 9, 2019

        False. Mariah Carey covered vogue before anyone know who Beyoncé was. Mariah Carey rapped on prisoner back in 1990.

      • K.O. December 9, 2019

        Cardi is a rapper-rapper, not a singer who tried to rap once in her life, nice try guys.

      • WTF December 9, 2019

        Bey has recorded more Rap songs than Cardi! Bey is just as much as a ‘rapper-rapper’ as Cardi.

        REMEMBER: Many of Bey’s song’s are really just her rapping and she sings her own hooks. That is the same as a rapper who raps all their verses and sings their own hooks or has someone else sing their hooks.

        Bey’s Top Rap Songs:

        In Da Club
        “If Looks Could Kill” (2001)
        Bow Down
        Top Off
        Hold Up
        “7/11” (2014)
        “Video Phone” (2008)
        “Haunted” (2013)
        “Feeling Myself” (2014)
        “Diva” (2008)
        Formation
        Ring The Alarm
        Everything Is Love
        “Summer”
        “Apes**t”
        “Boss”
        “Nice”
        “713”
        “Friends”
        “Heard About Us”
        “Black Effect”
        “Lovehappy”

      • K.O. December 10, 2019

        @WTF : Beyoncé is NOT a RAPPER. Cardi sang some lines on her songs and some featuring, do we consider her as a singer? NO because she’s a RAPPER that can sing just like Beyoncé is a SINGER that can rap. The word was : Cardi is the first RAPPER to cover american Vogue, it could have been Nicki or Kim or any other female RAPPER, is that too hard to understand or just bad faith?

  3. Clarksooon December 9, 2019

    They should have put Camila on the cover. Nobody cares about Cardi’s struggle to find another Bodak Yellow hit or her botched stomach. Cute kid though.

    • only facts December 9, 2019

      Cardi’s struggle to find another Bodak Yellow? You idiot. Bodak wasn’t even the biggest hit from her album – I Like It was. And Cardi is a GRAMMY award winning artist. Your fave is a LATIN Grammy Award winner. Two different things completely, b*tch. Mad your fave isn’t #1 on iTunes and has no songs in the top 40? LOL. The struggle is embarrassing. I’m getting 2014/2015 Iggy Azalea teas …and we see where Iggy Iggz is now. 🙂

      • Clarksooon December 9, 2019

        You are mad because I speak the truth. Both, Press and Money were designed to be Bodak Yellows Part 2 and 3 yet failed to take off like Bodak Yellow. I Like It was a GREAT song with a GREAT sample but….it was Bodak Yellow that put Cardi on the map everywhere. If I Like It was released first it would not have done as well and you know it because people would still be learning who Cardi is.

      • Clarks0oñ December 9, 2019

        U are arguing with urself to make urself win the argument. Lol

  4. only facts December 9, 2019

  7. Clarks0oñ December 9, 2019

    Pls ignore the Clarkson troll with that ugly profile logo

    • Clarksooon December 9, 2019

      U the troll. The MIRROR hurts don’t it? Maybe u should spend a little time in front of the mirror instead of trying to be me.

  8. Clarks0oñ December 9, 2019

    American vogue better and more prestigious than any other vogue in the world.
