Cardi B is gearing up for yet another milestone year, as the Bronx rapper has notched five nominations at this year's Grammy Awards, which is slated to take place on February 10. However, before celebrating at the recording industry's most prestigious award ceremony, Harper's BAZAAR caught up with Cardi at her favorite nail salon in the Bronx for a cover story interview, where she opens up about her relationship with Offset, rise to fame, family, how she feels after her pregnancy and much more.

Read on for a few takeaways from the interview below, and for its entirety, head on over to Harper's BAZAAR.

On her rise to fame and being somewhat over the fairy-tale life...

"I feel like my life is a fairy tale and I’m a princess—rags to riches, people trying to sabotage. Before, I cared about everything—relationship, gossip. Now I don’t feel like I have the time to please people. I don’t care about anything anymore—just my career and my kid."

On if she'll ever get back with Offset after splitting up in December...

"I don’t think so," and "Who knows? You never know, you can never tell."

On if any of her family and friends influenced her decision to leave Offset...

"No, I decided on my own. Nobody makes my decisions about my life but me."

On attending marriage counseling, which Cardi B revealed that Offset begged her to see a therapist...

"I didn’t want to go to marriage counseling. He suggested it, but it’s like, ‘I don’t want to go.’ There’s no counselor or nothing that could make me change my mind."

On dating new guys...

"I have a kid, and I’m also famous. So I can’t just sleep with anybody. People talk. You know, if I date somebody in the industry, that’s another person in the industry. If I date somebody who is not in the industry, he might not understand my lifestyle."

On receiving a ton of messages from guys after her breakup...

"It’s like, ‘Bro, why would you want to holler at me right away? You’re weird.’ If you think I'ma automatically hop onto you after a marriage, that just means you think I’m a sleaze. And I’m not. I have a kid—I have to show an example."

On being the type to avoid postpartum depression altogether after giving birth to Kulture, but that wasn't the case...

"I thought I was going to avoid it. When I gave birth, the doctor told me about postpartum, and I was like, ‘Well, I’m doing good right now, I don’t think that’s going to happen.’ But out of nowhere, the world was heavy on my shoulders."

On how she feels now after her pregnancy...

"For some reason, I still don’t feel like my body’s the same. I feel like I don’t have my balance right yet... But there’s an energy I haven’t gotten back yet that I had before I was pregnant. It’s just the weirdest thing."

Once more, head on over to Harper's BAZAAR for the entire coverage.
