Cardi B. Goes Off on Feminists, Calls Herself a Hustler
Cardi B. considers herself to be a hustler rather than a feminist.
The hip-hop star has rubbished the modern-day understanding of feminism, saying the word has been misused over recent years, and would instead prefer to be identified as a hustler.
The 25-year-old — whose real name is Belcalis Almanzar — told New York Magazine, "You know what? I'm not even gonna consider myself nothing.
"Here's the thing that bitches got me f—ed up when it comes to that word.
"People think that being a feminist is a bitch that, like, went to school.
"They wear skirts all the way to their motherf—ing ankles like a goddamn First Lady.
"That's not being a feminist. Being a feminist is being equal to do what a man do.
"N—s hustle, and I hustle n—s."
This comes shortly after Cardi vowed to set a "better example" to her fans.
The rapper recently took to social media to announce she plans to change her ways and do all she can to be a role model to the people "looking up to [her]."
The "Bodak Yellow" hitmaker posted a video on her Instagram account, in which she said, "I realised, after Halloween, a lot of little girls, they be looking up to me.
"They love me and I'm thinking to myself, like, 'Yo, I really need to be a better example.'"
The 25-year-old said she's always tried to lead by example, but she insisted she will do her best to be "more PG-13, less rated R."
The Bronx native just made history by becoming the first woman to chart her first three singles in the top 10 on Billboard’s Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs list simultaneously.
