Cardi B went on the Howard Stern show this Wednesday to talk about attending the Met Ball, her engagement to Offset, and getting ready for her baby who we know now will be a regular, degular, shmegular girl.
Cardi B officially confirmed the baby’s gender, which was first reported by Us Weekly last month. As for what the little Baby B’s name will be, it’s all picked out, but Cardi tells Stern that it’s up to Offset to tell people what it is since he picked it out. And when asked about why she hasn’t tied the knot officially with Offset yet, Cardi has the perfect excuse: “I’m not having a wedding pregnant, I want to wear my dream dress and I want to get drunk on my wedding and I want to go on a honeymoon and be drunk for a week, every day!”
Cardi B also talks in the interview about her past as a stripper, telling Stern that she used to lie to her parents about her job by saying she was babysitting for some “really rich white folks’ kids.” And while I’m admittedly wary of how often reporters focus on Cardi B’s body, she talks about feeling pressured to conform to a certain body type with candor:
The pressure, for example, I always wanted big boobs but I never felt like it was necessary. But now that I’m working in this Caucasian club, where all these Russian girls have these big, fake, plastic boobs, I was like I think that’s what guys want. Boom, I got boobs. Then I went to the urban club and everyone had big booties and I felt like I was so perfect, I felt like my body was perfect, but it wasn’t good enough. It wasn’t making me enough money. I wanted to do lip, do the fat transfer from your stomach to your butt, but they said I couldn’t do it because I didn’t have enough fat on my stomach. I see other girls who are getting butt injections and I said, let’s do it. It was this lady doing butt injections in her apartment, basement. It’s sad for me to say I have so much low self-esteem...the guy that I was dating, he used to cheat on me with these girls who had these type of bodies.
Ultimately, even bosses like Cardi B get low self-esteem!
