American rapper, singer/songwriter and mum Belcalis Marlenis Almánzar, known professionally as Cardi B, is one of the four stars to cover Vogue magazine’s January 2020 issues and she’s addressing why she got back with husband, Offset after his infamous cheating scandal as well as sharing her thoughts on why feminism isn’t a one-size-fits-all charade.
On feminism, the mum-of-one said:
“Women always want to talk about feminism and supporting everybody, except if it doesn’t fit your category of what to support.
Certain women that claim they are feminists only think that a certain type of woman should represent that. Like oh, you have to have a college degree, and you have to fu**ing be, practically, like, a senator, or Mother Teresa, or a Christian holy woman. No, you do not.
“Feminism means being equal to a man, and I am.”
On why she got back with husband, Offset after she separated from him for cheating on her last year, she said:
“Everybody has issues. I believe in forgiveness. I prayed on it. 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. I’ll beat your a– if you cheat on me.
Addressing fans who weren’t in support of her and Offset getting back together, she said:
“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.
But it’s real-life sh**. 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.”
