Cardi B Defends Standing By Her Man: 'This Is My Life'


Cardi B wants you to know that her decision to stay with her cheating fiancé is none of your business.

The rap star got engaged last October to Migos rapper Offset, who was later allegedly caught on video with another woman. Cardi chose to stand by her man.

“It’s like everybody is coming down my neck,” she said, in a new interview with Cosmopolitan. “Like, ‘Why are you not leaving him? You have low self-esteem.’ I don’t have low self-esteem. Bitch, 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 s**t with my man, and I don’t got to explain why. I’m not your property. This is my life.”

Cardi B also wonders how many of the women criticizing her decision not to offload Offset have perfect relationships.

“Since when are all these women dating pastors and deacons?,” she said. “I’m going to take my time, and I’m going to decide on my decision ... None of y’all bitches going to hug me to sleep and clean the tears off my face, so let me deal how I want to deal with it.

“It’s not right, what he f***ing did—but people don’t know what I did, ’cause I ain’t no angel.”

Cardi covers the new issue of Cosmopolitan, in which she also shares her thoughts on the #metoo movement. The rapper said she fears some women – like those gyrating in music videos – might not be taken seriously.

“A lot of video vixens have spoke about this and nobody gives a f**k,” said Cardi, who had her own experiences with sexual harassment.

“When I was trying to be a vixen, people were like, ‘You want to be on the cover of this magazine?’ Then they pull their d**ks out. I bet if one of these women stands up and talks about it, people are going to say, ‘So what? You’re a ho. It don’t matter.’”
