Cardi B is that b**ch! The Bronx native was named Woman of the Year by Billboard on Wednesday, and she will be celebrated at the 15th Annual Women in Music Event on Dec.10. As always, critics had a lot to say about this but Cardi was quick to clap back at them.
“Morning y’all, it’s your girl Cardi B, and yes, I am Woman of the Year,” the rapper said in a video posted on Instagram. “And for you cry babies like, ‘But she only got one song!’ Yeah, I got that song, b**ch. You know, the one that sold the most? The one that streamed the most? The one that had Republicans crying on Fox News about it. The one that have a song that’s about to be six times platinum in three months.”
Cardi also mentioned that she used her platform to educate her fans about politics and the election. “And on top of that, boy, for over a year…I’ve been influencing, using my platform for y’all to vote,” she said. “Not just when Joe Biden was going against Trump. I’ve been informing y’all about y’all’s senators. I’ve been informing y’all about districts.”
Billboard will also be honoring Jennier Lopez with the Icon Award and Dolly Parton is set to receive the Powerhouse Award.
The event will stream live on Dec. 10 at billboardwomeninmusic.com at 8 p.m. EDT.
