Music star, Cardi B is on the cover of Cosmopolitan Magazine‘s April 2018 issue which is set to be out from March 6.
The 25-year-old entertainer spoke to the magazine about why she still stayed with her fiancé, Offset despite the cheating allegations and also on why she refuses to change for anyone and more.
Read excerpts below:
On refusing to change—for anyone: 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. 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.
Cardi and Offset’s relationship was threatened by rumors of infidelity, even after the pair got engaged last September.
While fans have questioned the rapper for sticking by her fiancee amid all the cheating scandals, Cardi told Cosmo that she would rather work things out with Offset than to leave.
“Offset, after allegations of cheating: 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 sh*t with my man, and I don’t got to explain why. I’m not your property. This is my life…. I’m going to take my time, and I’m going to decide on my decision… It’s not right, what he f**king did—but people don’t know what I did, ’cause I ain’t no angel.”
On her past pole dancing days and respecting strippers: People say, ‘Why do you always got to say that you used to be a stripper? We get it.’ Because y’all don’t respect me because of it, and y’all going to respect these strippers from now on… Just because somebody was a stripper don’t mean they don’t have no brain.
