Cardi B Talks Offset, Beyonce, Blood Ties & Butt Injections In GQ
Cardi Bâ€™s takeover continues. The Bronx bombshell is profiled inÂ GQâ€™sÂ May 2018 issue, where she opens up about BeyoncÃ©, Blood ties, and butt injections. AfterÂ confirmingÂ her pregnancy this weekend, Bardi shares some insight into her relationship with her fiancÃ©, Offset.
The power couple is planning a fall wedding in Atlanta, though the year of the ceremony isnâ€™t known. They are also planning to live in the A-T-L, even though Cardi B hasnâ€™t adjusted to the area just yet. â€œI always feel like his people and him gotta feel comfortable,â€ she said. â€œ[Offset]â€™s never comfortable in New York. He loves down south. He told me to move in with him, in Atlanta. I stayed in his house a couple of times, but itâ€™s so hard to live there. He decided, though, that weâ€™re going to build a house in Atlanta, and thatâ€™s the house that weâ€™re gonna raise our kids in. But my job is in New York, always, so I can barely spend time in Atlanta.â€
Time has become a luxury for Cardi B and Offset. Both skyrocketing with respective rap careers, itâ€™s hard to find time to see one another. She claims they try to see each other a couple of times a week. But so far, she says, theyâ€™ve never spent a full uninterrupted week together. â€œI think weâ€™ve spent like about six days together in L.A.,â€ she added.
Cardi Bâ€™s â€œMoney Movesâ€ continue. After appearing inÂ GQ, hostingÂ â€œSaturday Night Live,â€Â and dropping her debut albumÂ Invasion of Privacy, the â€œBodak Yellowâ€ chart topper is co-hosting â€œThe Tonight Showâ€ this evening. Read additional quotes from her GQ story about BeyoncÃ©, Offset, and butt injections below.
ON OFFSET:Â â€œAround Super Bowl time I told my publicist to tell him, because I was very shy, â€˜Listen, if we gonna go on a public date together, you cannot make me look like a dumb-ass after this.â€™ I never wanted to date a rapper because I would hate to look crazy in public. Like you on a date with me but you fucking other bitches. And he was like, â€˜No, I really like her. Iâ€™m really feeling her.â€™ We was talking, we was making out. We didnâ€™t fuck. After the Super Bowl, it got really serious because I feel, like, all eyes on us.â€
ON OFFSET TRUST ISSUES:Â â€œFor a long time, we was in love with each other but we didnâ€™t really trust in each other. It was like a competition of whoâ€™s gonna hit each other up first.Â I donâ€™t want to hit him up first; he will hit me up first. People used to put things in my head: â€˜He gonna leave you. He be fucking with mad bitches.â€™ People used to put things in his head: â€˜Cardi, sheâ€™s a dog. Donâ€™t trust her.â€™ We never really trusted each other because I always feel like he could get any girl he wantsâ€”what makes me think heâ€™s gonna want me? I think he felt the same way. Ni*gas want to be with me, and bitches wanna be with him.â€
ON BUTT INJECTIONS:Â â€œThey donâ€™t numb your ass with anything. It was the craziest pain ever. I felt like I was gonna pass out. I felt a little dizzy. And it leaks for, like, five days.â€
ON BEYONCÃ‰:Â â€œIâ€™m too shy. When I met BeyoncÃ©, people be like, â€˜How that felt? I bet you was mad happy.â€™ Itâ€™s like, â€˜Actually, I wanted to shit on myself.â€™ It was a very scary thing. All she was doing was like, â€˜Hi. I love your music.â€™ And I was like â€˜UHHHN!â€™â€
ON BLOOD TIES:Â â€œHereâ€™s the thing. I never really wanted to talk about that, because I always wanted a music deal. I always want to keep my endorsements. When I was 16 years old, I used to hang out with a lot of Bloods. I used to pop off with my homies. And theyâ€™d say, â€˜Yo, you really get it poppinâ€™. You should come home. You should turn Blood.â€™ And I did. Yes, I did. And something thatâ€“itâ€™s not like, oh, you leave. You donâ€™t leave. Stripping changed my life. When I was a stripper, I didnâ€™t give a fuck about gangs, because I was so focused on making money.â€
ON GANGS:Â â€œOne thing I could say, you could ask any gang member: Being in a gang donâ€™t make you not one dollar. And I know for a fact every gang member, he asking himself, â€˜Why did I turn this?â€™ Sometimes itâ€™s almost like a fraternity, a sorority. Sometimes itâ€™s like that. And sometimes I see people thatâ€™s in the same gang kill each other. So sometimes there is no loyalty. Sometimes you gotta do certain things to get higher, to get higher and higher. Youâ€™re doing all of that and you not making money off of it. Thatâ€™s why I donâ€™t talk about it much. Because I wouldnâ€™t want a young person, a young girl, to think itâ€™s okay to join it. You could talk to somebody that is considered Big Homie and they will tell you: â€˜Donâ€™t join a gang.â€™ The person that Iâ€™m under, she would tell you, â€˜Donâ€™t join a gang.â€™ Itâ€™s not about violence. Itâ€™s just likeâ€“it doesnâ€™t make your money. It doesnâ€™t make your money. I rep it, because I been repping it for such a long time.â€
ON LIFE:Â â€œI feel like Iâ€™m not in control of my life.â€
ON PRESIDENT FRANKLIN D. ROOSEVELT:Â â€œFirst of all, he helped us get over the Depression, all while he was in a wheelchair. Like, this man was suffering from polio at the time of his presidency, and yet all he was worried about was trying to make America greatâ€“make America great again for real. Heâ€™s the real â€˜Make America Great Again,â€™ because if it wasnâ€™t for him, old people wouldnâ€™t even get Social Securityâ€¦Yes, from the New Deal. It was a system to get us back from the world Depressionâ€“then, on top of that, while he was president there was a fucking war going on. World War II was going on. So all this shit going on in the United States, while recouping the country from an economic tragedy, making sure that America won the warâ€“and his wife? I would say she was almost like Michelle Obama. She was such a good humanitarian, and we both got the same birthday, October 11th.â€
ON PRESIDENT TRUMP:Â â€œWhen it came to the school shooting, thatâ€™s when I was like, â€˜Okay, this ni*ga really think that everything is a joke.â€™ Have you ever shot a gun before? Itâ€™s very scary and loud. Itâ€™s traumatizing to shoot somebody. On top of that, what makes you think that a kid wouldnâ€™t come behind a teacher, shoot her from the back, then go in her desk and take the gun? And now you got two guns. Itâ€™s like, â€˜Donâ€™t you calculate?â€™â€
