Everyone loves a rags-to-riches fairy tale, but what happens when “happily ever after” turns into a moving target? In the March 2019 issue of Harper’s BAZAAR US, Cardi B opens up about fame, family and Offset.
On where her life is today: “I feel like my life is a fairy tale and I’m a princess— rags to riches, people trying to sabotage. Before, I cared about everything—relationship, gossip. Now I don’t feel like I have the time to please people. I don’t care about anything anymore—just my career and my kid. Well, I care about my career because of my money.”
On her post-partum depression: “I thought I was going to avoid it. When I gave birth, the doctor told me about post-partum, and I was like, ‘Well, I’m doing good right now, I don’t think that’s going to happen.’ But out of nowhere, the world was heavy on my shoulders.”
On why she waited to post photos of her daughter, Kulture: “As soon as she was born, one month in he [Offset] was like, ‘She’s so beautiful. Watch how people gonna go crazy.’ ’Cause a lot of people were saying mean stuff, like that we don’t post her because she’s ugly. He was like, ‘I’m about to post my baby right now.’ But then we were very concerned because we were getting a lot of threats, so he said, ‘The world don’t even deserve to see her.’”
On her original decision to leave Offset: “I decided on my own. Nobody makes my decisions about my life but me. I didn’t want to go to marriage counseling. He suggested it, but it’s like, ‘I don’t want to go.’ There’s no counselor or nothing that could make me change my mind.”
On how she feels about sex and relationships: “If you think Imma automatically hop onto you after a marriage, that just means you think I’m a sleaze. And I’m not. I have a kid— I have to show an example…Just because I’m out there and very sexual doesn’t mean that I have to be whorish. I like to have sex. That doesn’t mean I have to have it with everybody. Not that I judge women who want to have sex with the world.” Images courtesy of Harper’s BAZAAR. (source)
