Cardi B Sat Down With Vogue At Her Grandma’s House To Answer ’73 Questions’ And We’re Obsessed With Her Candid Answers
Vogue’s 73 questions, is a video series featuring celebrities in their natural habitat, answering —well duh— 73 questions. The videos are fairly choreographed and surely scripted, but they do offer insight into the homes and minds of celebs. This week, Vogue went to the Bronx to interrogate Cardi B. At her grandma’s house, the rapper opened up about politics, her new album, her marriage to Offset, and how Beyoncé taught her a life lesson —the tea is boiling.
Our favorite Bronx-native Latina rapper got real with Vogue on a 73 question-long interview and we’re living for her candid answers.
The rapper, actor and fashion slayer, brought Vogue to the Bronx for a round of 73 questions, “Welcome to the hood,” she said holding Kulture who made a cameo during nap time. While holding her baby, Cardi answered questions on motherhood, fashion, fame, music and her favorite place to be, right there at her grandmother’s house in the Bronx. ‘What makes the Bronx so special?’ Vogue asked. “That if you can survive in the Bronx, you can survive anywhere.”
The rapper explained that she loves being a mom, but that she feels committed to her fans too.
Cardi explained why she apologized for wanting to be pregnant again, “It’s because of my fans,” she explained, “They want a new album and so many other things in the world that won’t be able to get done if I’m pregnant.”
After putting hers and offset’s baby to sleep, she answered questions about politics.
When asked what she would ask President Trump if she could make him one question she said: “If you don’t love every American citizen, why become president?” She then went on to talk about how growing up in the Bronx always made her want to speak up. “Seeing the injustice, seeing how kids my age, my color or darker, were getting treated in my neighborhood. That always made me want to like, be involved.”
Cardi has made it very clear that she supports Bernie Sanders, and she told Vogue why.
After Cardi took the time to set up an interview with Bernie Sanders at a Detroit nail salon to talk police brutality, the economy and health care a few months ago, it became pretty obvious that the rapper from the Bronx was rooting for him. “He’s a natural humanitarian,” she said about the Democratic presidential candidate. The rapper explained that what she likes about him most is that he “cares about people.”
The conversation then steered toward her fans, the industry and music.
If she could give her young female fans a message, what would it be? To not worry about what’s happening to them right now “especially if you’re in high school, people bullying you, picking on you. Those people are not going to matter in a few years.”
At one point during the interview, Cardi facetimed Offset —and it got steamy.
The Bronx-native Latina facetimed Offset at one point during the interview, explaining that he was far away, in LA, working. “I love that I feel secure with him,” she revealed. “He makes me feel protected… I love him bigger than my ass, and my ass is big.” When asked about relationship advice she said: “The best relationship advice I can share is that if you love somebody no matter what, try to work it out.” —and we’re sure she’s hinting at that cheating scandal that went down between the two rappers back in 2017.
Cardi talked abut how Beyonce taught her an important lesson.
‘I Like it Like That’ rapper opened up about what made her feel the most vulnerable and explained how Beyoncé indirectly taught her a lesson about not caring about what the world says. “I feel most vulnerable when people say so many mean things about me. But Queen Bey came to the rescue and helped her cope with those feelings, “I heard she only allows herself to feel bad for one day,” Cardi says. “So I only give myself one day to feel bad for myself. Then I go back to work and not giving a fuck.”
Cardi got real about about what she’s learned from becoming a mother.
“Things don’t go as you plan, never!,” to her own fashion icons, “Lady Gaga, Missy Elliott, Jennifer Lopez, Rihanna,” and her new “spicy” album. She also opened up about her meteoric rise to celebrity: what’s kept her going; “In order for me to spoil my child for the rest of my life, I have to have money and make money for the rest of my life,” how she would like to be remembered: “as the girl-next-door who made it,” and what’s been hardest to get used to: “criticism”.
She also revealed that her new album will be “spicy” and “controversial.”
