In an interview with Australia’s The Kyle & Jackie O Show, Cardi B defended the lyrics of her hit “WAP.” She said, “The people that the song bothers are usually conservatives or really religious people. But my thing is…I grew up listening to this type of music. To other people it might be vulgar, but to me, it’s almost really normal.”
She continued, saying that the song isn’t meant for children. She explained, “Of course I don’t want my child to listen to the song. But it’s like, it’s for adults! It’s what people want to hear. If people didn’t want to hear it, if they were so afraid to hear it, it wouldn’t be doing so good.
