She did a shoot with I-D Magazine and with it, a mini interview about the importance of feminism. You can find the full article below but lets highlight some of our favourite things she discussed. 

“Being a feminist is real simple; it’s that a woman can do things the same as a man. I can finesse. I can hustle. We have the same freedom. I was in top of the charts. I’m a woman and I did that.”

“Of course the success of people like me scares people, that’s why they belittle us,” she continues. “If you’re a little scrawny man raised in a trailer in Alabama somewhere, of course you’re scared right now. That’s why they own guns! They’re scared of the intelligence of the minority. They scared of that shit. We have broken these rules a lot of times. In America, I always look at the charts."

Hip-hop is always there. We are controlling the music industry. We control the fashion world,” she says, “I don’t give a fuck if the fashion comes from a runway or if a Caucasian woman is walking it, once a coloured person wears something, that’s when everybody wants to wear it. We always influence.

BODAK YELLOW

Cardi is the first woman since Lauryn Hill to get a solo number one unaccompanied by anyone (read: a male co-star) and with a three-week reign she sat at the top spot longer than Ms. Hill. And knocked off Taylor Swift while she was at it.


“When I got to number one,” she says. “I didn’t even know that no woman has done that since 1998. I didn’t know how important it was for the community or the minorities.”

The first time I stripped I was really embarrassed, I felt like I could hear my parents in the back of my mind.
But I felt so disgusted. They can’t touch you in your private parts and they’re not supposed to touch you at all, but sometimes a man would caress me on my arm and I would hear them breathe so heavy in my ear.
It just disgusted me.
