Cardi B is gearing up for another milestone moment this weekend, where she’s notched five nominations at this year’s Grammy Awards. But before making her way to the West Coast, Harper’s BAZAAR caught up with Bardi at her favorite Bronx nail salon for a cover story interview, which released online Thursday (Feb. 7).
The in-depth profile sees the 26-year-old open up about her relationship with Offset, how she doesn’t feel back to her pre-pregnancy self just yet, and much more.
The “Bodak Yellow” rapper danced around a definitive answer when it came to ever getting back with Offset permanently. “I don’t think so. Who knows? You never know, you can never tell,” she said.
Cardi then admitted that Set wanted the pair to attend marriage counseling sessions together, something she clearly wasn’t behind doing. “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,” Cardi said.
Bardi figured she’d be the type to avoid postpartum depression altogether. “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,’” Cardi detailed. “But out of nowhere, the world was heavy on my shoulders.”
Cardi B also said something still feels off about her body. “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. When it comes to heels, I’m not as good at walking anymore. I feel like I’m holding a weight on me,” she explained. “But there’s an energy I haven’t gotten back yet that I had before I was pregnant. It’s just the weirdest thing.”
