publish date: 2018-02-09
Bronx star Cardi B tackled a plethora of hard-hitting topics during a newly released interview with i-D magazine, candidly sharing her thoughts on both feminism and racism.
Cardi offered her personal definition of what it means to be a feminist, explaining that pure book-smarts aren't required to fit the label.
'Being a feminist is such a great thing and some people feel like someone like me can’t be as great as that,' she explained. 'But then some people are smart but they don’t have no common sense. They.think feminism is great and only a woman that can speak properly, that has a degree, who is a boss, a businessperson … they think only Michelle Obama can be a feminist. But being a feminist is real simple; it’s that a woman can do things the same as a man. I’m equal to a n****. Anything a man can do, I can do. I can finesse, I can hustle. We have the same freedom. I was top of the charts. I’m a woman and I did that. I do feel equal to a man.”
