Cardi B just lit the internet on fire with a video of her newest tattoo. A tattoo, mind you, that stretches from the 27-year-old’s upper torso down to her left thigh. Although she can be seen showing off some skin, it is unclear whether she is fuly undressed in the video.
She had this to say as she captioned the post:
“Okay guys!Soooo here it is!It took me several months but I’m finally finished.This is my back tattoo!It goes from the top of my back to the middle of my thigh.Thank you”
This update comes not long after Cardi has been a subject of controversy on social media over her responses to negativity from community members. Her Vogue interview gave some interesting insight into how her latest song “Press” reflects her attitude towards it all.
She also took the time to detail exactly how vulnerable her music is for it. It has become a reflection of her personality, thoughtsw, and sexuality.
Fittingly, her tattoos are very much like her music and show off different sides of her character.
Here is a direct quote from the rapping star:
“I thought ‘Press’ was fun and it was gangsta, and then because it didn’t perform as good as my other songs, people was like, Oh, she’s a flop; oh, she’s dying out,” she explains. “This whole year has just been a lot for me. I feel like people are just so tired of me winning. I will look for my name on Twitter, and it’s like hate tweets, hate tweets, hate tweets.”
Another thing fans may not know is how much Cardi deals with “worry” in her life. Staying home is often stressful for her:
“When I’m there by myself, a lot of thoughts go to my head, and when the thoughts go to my head, it just overwhelms me, and it puts me down, and it puts me on social media, and that drives me insane. So I just like to be where there’s a lot of people so I won’t be watching my phone.“
Cardi continued the interview with Vogue to reveal that the pressure to make something especially good weights heavy on her:
“The first time it was just me being myself,” she says. “I didn’t even care if people was gonna like it or not. When I found out I did so good, I’m like, is this a big number? Everybody was like, yes, this is a huge number. So it’s scary because it’s like, now you got to top your first album, and then it’s like, damn. I wonder if people are gonna relate to the new things, to the new life, to the new shit that I gotta talk about now. Music is changing. I feel like people just wanna hear twerk-twerk music, but it’s like, is that just a phase? I probably need a sexy song. I need a lot of turn-up songs. I need a slow song, a personal song. And those are harder for me—I always need help when it comes to talking about my feelings. It’s hard for me to be soft, period. So it’s a lot of thoughts, a lot of pressure. It’s really like a job.“
