After covering Rolling Stone in October, Cardi B has added to her magical 2017 run by gracing the cover of New York Magazine in what she called a “dream come true" on social media. The Bronx native’s feature touches on a multitude of subjects, including feminism, wedding plans, staying in the music industry and possibly getting more cosmetic surgery.
Allison P. Davis penned the story, which focuses a good portion on feminism -- something the “Bodak Yellow” rapper seems interested in redefining. Per the piece, Cardi isn't in any rush to identify herself as a "feminist." “You know what? I’m not even gonna consider myself nothing,” she said. “Here’s the thing that b**ches got me f**ked up when it comes to that word. People think that being a feminist is a b**ch that, like, went to school. They wear skirts all the way to their motherf**king ankles like a goddamn First Lady. That’s not being a feminist. Being a feminist is being equal to do what a man do. N---as hustle, and I hustle n---as.”
This has truly been a historic year in the glow up of Cardi B, with "Bodak Yellow" enjoying it's 18th week on the Billboard Hot 100. This week, the 25-year-old notched her first three hits on Billboard’s Top Hip-Hop/R&B chart simultaneously with “Bodak Yellow” and serving up fire assists on “MotorSport” and G Eazy’s “No Limit.”
The "feminist" conversation around Cardi was sparked last year when she covered Vibe Magazine with the bold title beside her. Cardi responded to haters in November of last year with a video posted to her Instagram, saying, “The problem is that being a feminist is something so great, but y’all don’t want me to be great.”
