American rap sensation and actress Belcalis Marlenis Almánzar, popularly known as Cardi B, has been granted her first feature on the cover of Elle Magazine USA which she has since declared as a ‘favourite’, thanks to her piercings.
Introducing the cover on Instagram, the magazine wrote, “Time to party with Cardi. Introducing our September 2020 cover star, Belcalis Marlenis Almánzar aka the inimitable @iamcardib. Chances are you’ve heard (blasted, replayed, and then played again) #WAP, her hit new single with the @theestallion about, ahem. Or maybe you’ve caught her championing Medicare-for-all with @berniesanders in a nail salon. Now, in conversation with @marjon_carlos, the self-described “regular, degular, schmegular girl from the Bronx” opens up about her new music, marriage to #Offset, and why she wishes more male rappers were demanding justice for #BreonnaTaylor.
In recent weeks, the distinctive rapper has put out forceful statements about the wrongful death of Breonna Taylor, the 26 year-old Black EMT who was fatally shot by police in her home in Louisville, KY.
Speaking to Marjon Carlos, the harrowing account reminded Cardi of when her own cousin was murdered. She says, “I remember everybody waking up at 3 a.m. and driving all the way to New Jersey, to the hospital. And through all that driving, you’re crying and scared.”
She’s enraged that the officers who murdered Taylor—Jon Mattingly, Brett Hankison, and Myles Cosgrove—have not been arrested. “That is so insane to me,” she added. “What they did to her is really fucked up. What’s the excuse? Why is the cop not in jail? Wasn’t what he did a crime? It’s a crime! And no apology. Nothing. Unbelievable.”
Talking about love and relationship with her husband, Offset, Cardi B says, “I don’t really like talking about love much. There’s always rumors about me and my husband, and I feel like people would rather start rumors because they want me to be heartbroken.”
“If you all are so curious to know about my relationship and blah, blah, blah, I’m going to put it in the f*ckin’ music, and you can buy it, too. I’m not going to give it to you all for free.”
