On Instagram Live, Cardi addressed concerns that she is only splitting from the Migos rapper for publicity. “I just really hate how people say we trying to do this for publicity. Think we want to put our life out there for what — what we gain from publicity? Nothing,” she began.
“I’ve been seeing a lot of people say that my relationship was fake,” she continued. “Bitch, there’s certain things called love. People do fall in love. Like my relationship was never fake. I met this nigga, he was on my ass, I gave him a chance and we fell in love with each other. But we never did anything for publicity, bitch. You think I got fucking pregnant, could have ruined my career for fucking publicity?”
In addition, during her performance at Chicago’s B96 Jingle Bash concert on Saturday night, Cardi B switched out the lyrics to her verse on Migos’ “MotorSport.” Replacing her oiginal lyrics, she rapped, “I get up set off / I turn Offset on / I told him the other day / Yeah, we gon’ get a divorce.”
Shortly after the performance, Offset tweeted that he missed Cardi.
As for her status with fellow New York rapper Nicki Minaj, Cardi B deemed the drama “unnecessary” when asked about her infamous fashion week altercation with Minaj on CBS Sunday Morning. She also says she thinks having beef is “bad for business.”
“A lot of people like to say all publicity is good publicity. To me it’s not. That takes away [from] people paying attention to your craft,” she says. Check out clips from the interview below.
