Turn on the radio right now, and chances are you'll hear a Cardi B song. The Bronx-born rapper is everywhere right now: on the charts, Instagram, , even The Tonight Show. (She co-hosted Monday night's show with Jimmy Fallon and was perfection, obviously.)
Her debut album, Invasion of Privacy, released April 6, — making her the first female artist in history to ever achieve that feat. She's also hitting the Coachella stage on both April 15 and April 22 and has plans to tour solo in the weeks following. If that's not enough, she's opening for Bruno Mars this fall during several stops on his tour. To say she's "killing it" is an understatement.
But not everyone's letting Cardi B enjoy her success. Shortly after the rapper confirmed on SNL that she's pregnant, people started saying this is a mistake for her career — as if women can't have successful professional lives and be mothers. Here are just a few examples of social media users criticising Cardi B:[ id="982996696228655104"]
Cardi B won't let you disrespect her because she used to be a stripper
Cardi B isn't taking their words to heart, though. She stopped by Hot 97's Ebro in the Morning this week and reiterated what we already know: She's perfectly capable of being a mom and ruling the rap charts.
The answer to that question, of course, is "nothing." But Cardi B has something to say to anyone who still wants to be negative about her pregnancy: "I'm 25 years old, and I'mma say this in the most humblest way: I'm a millionaire. I'm established. The industry is never promised, but I know that if I make the right money move, I'm gonna always have money."
Damn straight. Watch Cardi B say all this for yourself in the video, below. Start around the 27-minute mark.
And while you're at it, check out Cardi B's phenomenal SNL performance from this weekend where she first revealed her pregnancy. She's clearly thinking about all her coins at the end when the audience applauded.
