Cardi B is showing us a different side thanks to a new magazine cover.
The former “Love & Hip Hop: New York” star is the first female rapper to grace the cover of U.S. Vogue magazine. And she’s not alone for the January 2020 issue.
The “Press” performer’s daughter Kulture joined her on the Annie Leibovitz-shot cover.
“Happy to share this moment with you my sweetheart.This is bigger for you then for me.You are so special to me.Thank you,” the rapper wrote on Instagram.
And it’s Kulture’s dad, Offset, who is the subject of some key points of the interview.
The Lawrenceville native cheated on Cardi in December 2018. They broke up, and then Cardi took him back.
“When me and my husband got into our issues—you know, he cheated and everything—and I decided to stay with him and work together with him, a lot of people were so mad at me; a lot of women felt disappointed in me,” Cardi said.
“But it’s real-life (expletive). If you love somebody and you stop being with them, and you’re depressed and social media is telling you not to talk to that person because he cheated, you’re not really happy on the inside until you have the conversation. Then, if you get back with them, it’s like, how could you? You let all of us down. People that be in marriages for years, when they say till death do us part, they not talking about little arguments like if you leave the fridge open. That’s including everything.”
Cardi acknowledged that exposing her life on social media “makes everything hard.” But she and Offset have managed to improve their communication and she knows where they stand.
“I believe in forgiveness. I prayed on it,” she said. “Me and my husband, we prayed on it. We had priests come to us. And we just came to an understanding like, bro, it’s really us against the world. He has my back for everything, I have his back for everything, so when you cheat, you’re betraying the person that has your back the most. Why would you do that? We have come to a clear understanding. For me, monogamy is the only way.”
Cardi won’t get violent, however, over Kulture’s bonding with her siblings. The 17-month-old is the Migos rapper’s fourth child. Kulture recently spent time with the Offset’s older children during Thanksgiving in Atlanta.
“It’s gonna be fun,” Cardi told People magazine in anticipation of the festivities. “A lot of open space down there in Atlanta so I can’t wait.”
