Cardi B on Thursday was named the Woman of the Year by Billboard and she had a few things to say to those who aren’t impressed with the honour.
The Grammy award-winning rapper who is set to receive the award at Billboard’s 15th annual Women in Music event taking place virtually December 10, took to Instagram to defend herself, despite having one of the biggest songs of the year, “WAP,” featuring Megan Thee Stallion.
“Morning y’all, it’s your girl Cardi B, and yes, I am Woman of the Year,” the star stated in a video. “And for you crybabies like, ‘But she only got one song!’ Yeah, I got that song, b—h. You know, the one that sold the most? The one that streamed the most? The one that had Republicans crying on Fox News about it. The one that have a song that’s about to be six times platinum in three months. The one that had your grandma popping her p—y on TikTok. Yeah b—h, that one.”
Cardi went on to explain that in addition to her 2020 hit, her political activism has also made her worthy of the Woman of the Year Award. She launched into an epic rant on how she’s used her platform to educate her fans and inspire change.
“And on top of that, boy, for over a year, you know what I’m saying, I’ve been influencing, using my platform for y’all to vote,” Cardi said while wearing a robe, head wrap and minimal makeup. “Not just when Joe Biden was going against Trump. I’ve been informing y’all about y’all’s senators. I’ve been informing y’all about districts. Midterm elections. Using my own money to meet up with these candidates like Bernie [Sanders]. Flying out, tired after shows. Yeah, that’s me, b—h.
“Even when y’all’s crying like, ‘But she don’t represent us!’ Yes I do, b—h,” she concluded. “I represent America. I wanted a change, and that’s exactly what the f–k I did. And eat it up. I’m just that b—h. Eat it up with a spoon so y’all can get a mouthful.”
She also thanked her loyal fans in her caption. “Thank you BARDIGANG with out y’all encouraging while the world 🌍 was against me and criticizing every move I wouldn’t have gotten here everyday and use my voice for a change,” she wrote.
“WAP” shattered multiple streaming records, became a viral dance on TikTok and earned Cardi her fourth No. 1 hit on the Billboard Hot 100. It earned 93 million streams in just seven days, setting a new record.
Other musicians being honoured at this year which will be hosted by Teyana Taylor include Jennifer Lopez, recipient of the Icon Award; Dua Lipa, recipient of the Powerhouse Award; Dolly Parton, recipient of the Hitmaker Award; Chloe x Halle, recipients of the Rising Star Award Presented by Honda; and Jessie Reyez, recipient of the American Express Impact Award among others.
