Cardi B is Billboard’s Woman of the Year!
However, not everybody is happy with her achievement as many haters questioned why she was given the said award.
The rapper is known for being frank and she took to her Instagram to prove everybody wrong. She shared a video showing her in her bathrobe and headband as she explained why she deserves the award.
The “WAP” rapper said, “For you cry babies like, ‘What? She only got one song.’ Yeah, I got THAT song, bitch. You know the one that sold the most, the one that streamed the most… The one that had your grandma popping her p—y on TikTok.” The song featured Megan Thee Stallion and there was even a cameo from Kylie Jenner.
She also mentioned about her activism in politics. She explained, “Using my money, my own money, to meet up with these candidates like Bernie [Sanders]. Flying out, tired after shows. Yeah that’s me, bitch and I represent America. Okay. And I wanted a change and that’s exactly what the f—k I did… I’m just that bitch. Eat it up with a spoon.”
Cardi also thanked her fans. She wrote in the caption, “Thank you BARDIGANG with out y’all encouraging while the world was against me and criticizing every move I wouldn’t have gotten here everyday and use my voice for a change.”
Selena Gomez, Billie Eilish, and Ariana Grande were also given the prestigious award in the past.
The 28-year-old rapper are used to giving fierce clapbacks. One time, she reacted to a racist’s tweet that said Black artists, “depreciate the value of a Hermés Birkin bag.”
She responded by reminding fans, “Actually, we add value because in hip hop, when we mention brands in hip-hop, they s–t go up.” According to her, some set double standard because, “Y’all don’t do this to these white celebrities.”
Meanwhile, Cardi B also received backlash after she posted as a Hindu goddess in the cover of a magazine. She apologized and explained that it was not her intention to disrespect anybody’s religion.
Cardi recently got back together with her husband Offset after filing for divorce. She’ll be presented the award during the Billboard’s 2020 Women in Music Event on December 10. Other honorees include Jennifer Lopez and Dolly Parton.
