Cardi B has snagged the title of Billboard's Woman of The Year. In a cover story, the rapper talked about fans singing “WAP” outside of the White House after Joe Biden's projected win was announced.
She said, “I just feel like it was such a big victory for me and for Megan. I’m so used to listening to raunchy female rap music since I was a little girl — Trina, Khia, Lil’ Kim, Jacki-O, Foxy Brown. “WAP,” to me, was just a regular raunchy female rap song, but it caused so much controversy. So many Republicans — not just any Republicans that got an Instagram following, but a lot of Republicans that got blue checks on Twitter and millions of followers, like Ben Shapiro, Candace Owens, Tomi Lahren — were talking so much crap about “WAP.” So it was just a victory for me seeing people celebrating Biden’s win with my and Megan’s song. Power of the p***, ya heard?!”
Cardi later discussed whether she is a role model or not, saying, “I know I’m a role model because I know there’s a lot of women like me. At the end of the day, I know I’m a b**** that made it through because I work my a** off, not because luck fell on my thighs.”
