Cardi B shares the cost of fame

Cardi B was “a little bit happier” before she was famous.

The ‘Bodak Yellow’ hitmaker is grateful she doesn’t “have to worry” about her future anymore but admits she was happier two or three years ago when she had less money.

She told CR Fashion Book: “My family, whatever they want, they get. Everything that I want to buy, I can get. I don’t have to worry so much about my future … Even though I’m happy, I feel like I was a little bit happier two or three years ago when I had less money. I had less people who had opinions about my life. I felt like my life was mine. Now I feel like I don’t even own my life. I feel like the world owns me.”

Meanwhile, the 25-year-old rapper previously revealed she is working hard to make things better for her future children.

She said: “This is my work ethic: I do not want to raise my future kids where I was raised, and I know the only way to do it is working, working, working, working, working. I don’t want to live in a small Bronx apartment. I don’t want to have three kids that got to share one room. I don’t want my kids to go to school and get gang-affiliated. I don’t want to do welfare. I don’t.”

And Cardi can’t believe so many people look up to her.

She added: “When women come up to me like, ‘I am a freaking senator,’ or, ‘I’m a ¬≠doctor’. It’s like, ‘Damn, y’all like me? I look up to y’all!’ It’s not that people want to be like me, but some want to say the things I say and can’t because they’re afraid. I say it for them.”
