Breakout rap act of 2017, Cardi B, covered the latest edition of Rolling Stone magazine.
Cardi B, who just turned 25, spoke to the magazine a day after her birthday, and revealed her displeasure at celebrating it without fiance, Offset.
“I was sad, because it’s like, ‘Oh, my gosh, I’m not getting no dick on my birthday,'” she says to the magazine. “But I wasn’t going to get dick on my birthday anyway, because I got my period.”
The rapper, who first tasted fame as a viral Instagram account, revealed that her new found success is beginning to change her no-holds-barred attitude.
“I used to tell myself that I will always be myself,” she says. But she worries that she’s going back on that vow. “Little by little, I’m feeling like I’m getting trapped and muted.”
Her social media exploits gained her a spot on reality TV show Love And Hip-Hop, and she turned to rap to monetize the fame. “I said, ‘TV don’t make you rich,'” recalls her manager, Shaft, who once produced Lil’ Kim. “‘You gotta sell something! Waist trainers, hair, something.'”
