Cardi B has vowed to set a “better example” to her fans.
The 25-year-old rapper – whose real name is Belcalis Almanzar – has taken to social media to announce she plans to change her ways and do all she can to be a role model to the people “looking up to [her]”.
The ‘Bodak Yellow’ hitmaker posted a video on her Instagram account, in which she said: “I realized, after Halloween, a lot of little girls, they be looking up to me. They love me and I’m thinking to myself, like, ‘Yo, I really need to be a better example.'”
The musician has admitted she has always tried to lead by example, but she has insisted she will do her best to be “more PG-13, less rated R”. And the star has hinted it is her “hood rat friends” who influence her and are the cause of her more “R rated” music.
She said: “But I be hanging out with my hood rat friends and then they f**k me up all over again.”
This news comes shortly after Cardi B – who recently got engaged to Migos’ Offset – was slammed by Azealia Banks for being fake.
Speaking previously the outspoken rap star said: “Don’t get me wrong I’m very entertained by Cardi B, and I really like ‘Bodak Yellow’. That’s a really good song, but you are not that girl. It’s a real fire that burns in a soul, you don’t have that fire, I’m very happy for your success and I love your come-up and I love like seeing you smile and having a good time.
“But this like, woman’s expression, this black woman’s expression … just the fire of the black woman’s expression … you don’t have it, Cardi. And you won’t get it, because it’s not you.”
