Cardi B talked about the positive changes that have been happening in Hollywood following the Harvey Weinstein scandal and the birth of the #MeToo and Time’s Up movements. While the rapper had only good things to say about it, she stated that she’d really like to see the wave of equality spread through the hip-hop industry as well.
The former stripper also said women who earn their living by using their sexuality should receive as much respect as anybody else.
‘People say, ‘Why do you always got to say you used to be a stripper? We get it.’ Because you all don’t respect me ’cause of it, and you all going to respect these strippers from now on.’
As for the #MeToo movement extending its positive effects to the music industry, the Bodak Yellow star said: ‘A lot of video vixens have spoken about this, and nobody gives a f**k. When I was trying to become a vixen, people were like, ‘You want to be on the cover of this magazine?’ Then they pulled their d**ks out. I bet if one of these women would stand up and talk about it, people are going to say, ‘So what? You are a hoe. It don’t matter.’’
Cardi went on to claim that she is not sure the men who support the movement are genuine about it.
‘These producers and directors, they are not woke, they’re scared.’
Not too long ago, Cardi B also talked about her brand new life and newly acquired fame, admitting that although she has always dreamed about reaching success as a rapper, she was ‘a little bit happier’ before.
‘Well, one positive thing [about fame] is that my family, whatever they want, they get. Everything I want to buy, I can buy. I don’t have to worry so much about my future. I had less people who had opinions about my life. I felt my life was mine. Now I feel like I don’t even own my own life. I feel like the world owns me.’
