Cardi B says men are jumping on #MeToo because they’re ‘scared’

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.

Earlier this month, Cardi said that her much-anticipated debut album would be out in April. Revisit our 2016 interview with the rapper here.
