Cardi B Has Something To Say About Her Hit Song

Time and time again, Cardi B has shown us her authenticity through her lyrics and social media presence. The Bronx-born rapper has never been afraid to publicly discuss the taboo aspects of our lives, including sexuality and politics, making her stand out apart from her rap competitors. With an outspoken attitude like Cardi B, it's expected that the rapper would also make a number of headlines for what she says on and off stage. 

In March 2021, Cardi received backlash amid her racy performance with Megan Thee Stallion at the 63rd Annual Grammy Awards. Their performance featured the two Grammy-winning artists' hit songs: Cardi's "Up" and Megan's "Savage (Remix)." Additionally, the duo performed their raunchy collaboration, "WAP," which sent conservative media into an uproar in late 2020. 

Much similarly, Megan and Cardi's Grammy performance evoked the same reaction from conservatives — especially Candace Owens. During an appearance on Tucker Carlson's Fox News show, the political commentator criticized the two rappers for their performance, deeming it an "attack on American values, American traditions," per CNN. Following a heated exchange between Cardi and Owens, the former made a bold statement in defense of "WAP." Here's what Cardi B has to say.

Don't count on Cardi B to be a babysitter...she's not interested

Candace Owens and Cardi B have never seen eye to eye, and their continued feud proves such is true. In March 2021, the "Bodak Yellow" rapper entered a nasty Twitter beef with the conservative pundit, who referred to the rapper as a "cancer cell to the culture" during the exchange. Things went left quickly, as Cardi shared a tweet allegedly from Owens that reads (via Page Six), "Yes, my husband did cheat on me with my brother. Yes, he said no when I asked to join them." Owens later claimed that the image was "photoshopped" she would take legal action against Cardi for "slandering" her brother. "Just spoke with my family. I am 100% suing Cardi for that nonsense," Owens tweeted.

As if referencing former first lady Melania Trump's infamous 1997 nude shoot wasn't enough, Cardi took a moment to make a statement about her hit "WAP" lyrics in response to a comment about whether she's empowering her daughter Kulture. "I don't make music for kids I make music for adults," Cardi wrote to the Instagrammer, via Yahoo!. "Parents are responsible on what their children listen too or see...I'm a very sexual person but not around my child just like every other parent should be." 

Clearly, "WAP" won't ever stand for "wings and pizza," so don't look forward to Cardi B attempting to reach the children's demographic with her music any time soon.
