The Bronx rapper also discussed how the movement has not yet benefitted video vixens
Cardi B appeared on the cover of Cosmopolitan yesterday, giving a typically no holds barred interview where she discussed the #MeToo movement. The Bronx rapper said that the movement is not currently helping all women, as video vixens – women who appear in rap videos and put their sexuality front-and-centre – have spoken up before and not not been listened to.
“A lot of video vixens have spoke about this and nobody gives a fuck,” she said. “When I was trying to be a vixen, people were like, ‘You want to be on the cover of this magazine?’ Then they pull their dicks out. I bet if one of these women stands up and talks about it, people are going to say, ‘So what? You’re a ho. It don’t matter.’”
Cardi is also sceptical of some of the male allies in the #MeToo movement and their motivations for supporting it. “These producers and directors, they’re not woke,” she said, “they’re scared.” Read the full interview on Cosmopolitan.
