After her recent visit to Nigeria and Ghana, American rapper Cardi B and her daughter are on the cover of Vogue US magazine’s January 2020 issue.
Cardi B is one of Vogue’s four January cover stars. She shared the cover with 1-year-old Kulture Kiari Cephas.
She granted an interview where she spoke about motherhood, a new album, the scrutiny of ever-escalating fame, and how she handles the pressure.
The rapper said she handles pressure without apologies.
She told Vogue: “It’s hard for me to be soft, period.”
Cardi B born Belcalis Almánzar, has famously described herself as a “regula degula schmegula girl from the Bronx”. Her father is
Dominican, and her mother is from Trinidad.
She was a class clown who always dreamed of being a famous rapper. “I don’t know what it is—I will never know what it is—but ever since I was young, people liked to hear me talk,” she says.
“I was always that person, like, I didn’t really have a lot of friends, but people was excited to see me in class because they knew I was funny. They was dying to hear a story from me.”
Cardi, who was a stripper went from that to social-media phenom to reality-television star to world-beating rapper in less than five years,
went on to share her thoughts on her next album, politics, motherhood, marriage, and more in Vogue’s January 2020 cover.
