Cardi B walks to the beat of her own drum and doesn't plan on changing her tune anytime soon. Cosmopolitan nabbed the rapper for its April 2018 issue -- her third magazine cover of the year -- as Cardi B dishes on accepting her authentic self, and the Offset cheating rumors.
When Cardi B first rose to fame, it wasn't because of her ubiquitous hit "Bodak Yellow" or even her spot on Love & Hip-Hop New York -- it was because of her cheeky, unapologetic Instagram video clips, which earned her thousands of followers (and haters). While the rapper remains just as unfiltered and playful as her pre-"Bodak" days, she says she has to be a bit more "careful" now given how easily people are offended these days.
"Everybody got different beliefs and different religions and were raised differently, yet you also supposed to be careful you don’t offend somebody. Everybody gets bothered about everything," she told Cosmo. "Everybody got a f--king opinion about you. If I change myself, then I’m going to lose myself, and I won’t be who makes me happy.”
