Cardi B + Mariah Carey Talk Celebrity Life
In February 2021, Cardi B opened up to R&B icon Mariah Carey about everything from childhood insecurities, body enhancement surgeries, her background as a stripper to the pressure to drop her upcoming album. The multi-talented performer also talked about her hesitation to get close to other celebrities. Perhaps a conversation with City Girls’ JT is on the way soon!
“I don’t want to get close to a celebrity and feel like we have a connection, and then out of nowhere they do some funny sh*t and disappoint me. I’ve always had the same friends. I’m very loyal. If I’m your friend, I’m going to always ride hard for you. But if you don’t ride hard for me or you do some funny shit, I’m going to feel a certain type of way. My husband always tries to tell me, ‘You can’t think like that because you’ve got to network and this is not real life. You got to understand that.’”
Cardi B Makes History With “Up”

“Up” arrives with, no surprise, a high streaming sum. The track, released Feb. 5, registered 31.2 million U.S. streams in the week ending Feb. 11, according to MRC Data. The total allows for a No. 1 start on the R&B/Hip-Hop Streaming Songs chart, it also opens atop the all-genre Streaming Songs ranking to mark her fourth champ. (Billboard)
