The Bronx native garnered 1.8 million Instagram followers by delivering a comedic spin on her life as a New York City stripper. Her uncensored stories, outlandish antics, and crass clapbacks, along with her NYC-Dominican accent, caught the attention of ratchet reality producer Mona Scott-Young, who tapped the 23-year-old as the next big star of VH1’s hit reality series Love & Hip-Hop: New York.
In part one of our interview, Cardi stopped by GlobalGrind’s offices to discuss her rise to fame, growing up poor, attending college, and the decision she made to become a stripper. Cardi also shared scary stories about the dangers of dancing, and how she harbored a lot of guilt for disappointing her family.
In part two of our interview, Cardi gets a little more explicit, even explaining her decision to become celibate. Well, sort of. While the love of her life is currently spending time in prison, Cardi has made the decision not to have sex with other men, but women are up for grabs.
You can catch her each and every Monday on L&HH: NY on VH1 at 8 p.m. EST. Check out part two of our two-part interview with Cardi B up top. For the first part, click here.
