Cardi B isn’t interested in being a role model for your daughters. The 25-year-old Bronx rapper posted an Instagram photo of herself posing with adolescent girls. The image is from her cover story for I-D magazine.
In the caption she wrote, “I’m not trying to be this “ROLE MODEL” to these young girls because I’m very rated R and I’m not a perfect person. I wouldn’t want to change for nobody neither…”
The rapper, who is still struggling to drop her second solo hit single, found fame when she was discovered on Instagram and signed to star on Love & Hip-hop: NY.
Cardi, who was born Belcalis Almanzar, was threatened by Crips gang members on Instagram.com after she posted a photo of herself wearing a blue fur coat. In the photo caption, the self-professed Bloods gang member wrote: “I hate flue, but this coat was too poppin’.”
“Flue” — a merging of the words “f-ck” and “blue” — is considered an insult to Crips gang members who drop the letter ‘B’ from their language.
Crips members flooded Cardi’s IG timeline with threats, warning her not to attend the upcoming NBA All-Star game.
I’m not trying to be this “ROLE MODEL” to these young girls because I’m very rated R and I’m not a perfect person.I wouldn’t want to change for nobody neither .I do however want to remind girls from any age that i was a young girl like them from the STREETS +MUD=BRONX where you dream big but it seems like dreams don’t come true .I want to let them know that dreams do come true with hard work and prayer! @i_d MAGAZINE
