Cardi B is one of today’s biggest artists in the music scene. She’s definitely hot commodity right now – and so is her personal life.
Her relationships, breakups, feuds, opinions, and family are hot topics, without a doubt.
And the 26-year-old rapper, who stuns in the cover of March’s Harper’s Bazaar, opened up in her interview with the title about one of the hottest topics of all: Her separation with her husband, Offset.
Cardi announced back in December that she and Offset, with whom she shares a baby girl with, had ended their relationship. The revelation came at the heels of a lot of cheating speculations.
But, she tells Harper’s Bazaar, it was not the rumored infidelities that made her leave him, per se. Rather, it was this:
“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.”
These days, the two are rumored to be on the road to reconciliation, with Cardi even stating a while back that they are “working things out.” She and Offset have also been spotted together and they continue to co-parent their daughter Kulture, who is now six months old.
But no official confirmation has been made about them getting back together. Yet.
Whether she’s single or back in a relationship, the one thing Cardi wants to make clear is her stand on her sex life and any new relationships that may come:
“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.”
She also candidly spoke about not expecting to experience post-partum depression:
“I thought I was going to avoid [postpartum depression]. When I gave birth, the doctor told me about postpartum, 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.”
And she said about her life at the moment:
“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.”
