“Certain Things Have to Be Private”
After weeks and weeks of the back and forth between Cardi B and the pregnancy rumors surrounding her, the starlet is finally setting the general public straight. During an interview with Beats 1, the Invasion of Privacy rapper talked about music, life so far, her suspected beef with Nicki Minaj, her debut album — which dropped today (April 6) — and her alleged baby on the way.
“Certain things to me…”
Before saying that those who listen to her album will “know a little bit more,” Cardi said that she “can’t address all the rumors and everything.” “I have been so open to people about myself,” she continued. “People can not expect me to be open about everything. Like, certain things to me… it has to be private.”
“You can not invade my privacy,” she added. “I’m not a damn animal at the zoo where you just could see everything.”
The star is most definitely practicing what she preaches, protecting her privacy to the best of her ability. TMZ caught Cardi on Thursday evening (April 5) outside the London Hotel in NYC. The outlet said that it was impossible to catch a photo of her belly, as hotel staff and her team swarmed and surrounded her before she got out her car.
However, despite the star’s wishes, the media will do what it does.
According to MTO News, Cardi planned to reveal her pregnancy in Miami. However, before she could do so, someone snapped pictures of her burgeoning belly, spilling the news onto the internet.
In the photos — “taken from BEHIND SOME BUSHES” — viewers can see the rapstress dressed in an elaborate costume, featuring a yellow full-length skirt and bedazzled top. While a stylist maneuvers the material of the skirt, he cups the fabric just right, giving off a nearly perfect view of Cardi’s baby bump.
Rumor has it…
“No b***h I’m just getting fat,” she said when news of her pregnancy first hit the web earlier this year. “Let me [be] fat in peace.” No one bought her story though. In fact, a few weeks later, a TMZ source insisted that the “Bodak Yellow” rapper is not “fat” but with child.
The insider spilled the New York native’s plans to work right up until the birth of her and Offset’s first child together, slated to be born within the first week of July. She’ll supposedly be seven months pregnant while performing at California’s Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival in April.
On that same note, the star will be two months post-birth when she goes on tour with Bruno Mars. According to the informer, Cardi still plans to join to the “That’s What I Like” singer on his 24K Magic World Tour in September.
The string of performances will pop off in Denver, lasting for several weeks afterwards. So far, tour stops include Colorado, Minnesota, Michigan, Pennsylvania, New York, Tennessee and more. The duo is also projected to stop in Canada for two nights.
If Cardi is pregnant, it will be the 25-year-old’s first child. The little one will come after the rapper and fiancé Offset have been engaged nearly seven months.
Until she announces it herself, all is open to speculation. So, keep your eyes peeled for more comments from the star.
