In attendance at Christian Siriano’s New York Fashion Week runway presentation, Bronx rapper Cardi B (wearing Christian Seriano) was asked about what rappers she’d like to work with and also which ones are her idols. Very much on the rise, Cardi wasn’t about to be dragged down by anyone’s beef and on the topic of idols, smartly responded, “I love Lil Kim, I love Trina, I like Remy Ma, I love Nicki, I love all of them. Sheesh. I love all of them!”
On meeting Beyoncé last week at the Made in America festival in Philadelphia, Cardi said, “I’m surprised Beyoncé liked me. I met Beyoncé!”
Cardi also reaffirmed she’s dropping a new album in October and said she’s a little nervous about how the project will be received, but mostly feels confident about it.
In the meantime, Cardi’s hit single “Bodak Yellow” has taken over the No. 2 spot on Billboard’s Hot 100 chart, outflanked only by Taylor Swift’s new single “Look What You Made Me Do.”
