‘WAP’ hitmaker Cardi B has opened up about being a ‘sexual person’ and revealed why she’s going to continue rapping about racy topics.
Cardi B‘s hit song “WAP” featuring fellow female rapper Megan Thee Stallion was arguably the song of the summer. Despite its widespread success, some Republican commentators took issue with the track’s raunchy lyrics — but Cardi is paying no mind to her critics. “I want to show people that you can do positive things, but you can also be yourself,” she told Billboard on December 2, after the outlet named her Woman of the Year. “I’m a very sexual person. I love sex, and I like to rap about it. I like to do it … I love my body, and I want to be able to express that. I’m just a naughty girl, and I’m not hurting nobody because I love my p***y and want to rap about it.”
The mom-of-one also opened up about getting political this year, having sat down for an interview with President Elect Joe Biden and openly speaking out against Donald Trump. “I like justice. I like to work and be creative … I know I’m a role model because I know there’s a lot of women like me. At the end of the day, I know I’m a b***h that made it through because I work my ass off,” she explained. Following Joe Biden’s election win in early November, spontaneous street parties kicked off around the country. Notably, crowds gathered in front of the White House and sang along to “WAP”.
“I just feel like it was such a big victory for me and for Megan. [The song] to me, was just a regular raunchy female rap song, but it caused so much controversy,” Cardi said. “So many Republicans — not just any Republicans that got an Instagram following, but a lot of Republicans that got blue checks [on Twitter] and millions of followers, [like Ben] Shapiro, Candace Owens, Tomi Lahren — were talking so much crap about “WAP.” So it was just a victory for me seeing people celebrating Biden’s win with my and Megan’s song.”
