The 26-year-old performer, whose “Invasion of Privacy” won for best rap album, hotly rejected the criticism of unnamed detractors in a video she posted before deleting her Instagram. (An entertainment news account saved the clip.)
“I’m sick of this shit,” she said angrily. “I worked hard for my motherfucking album.”
She railed against the fickle nature of award recognition, noting that she lost at year’s Grammys and it was treated by many as an injustice.
“I remember last year when I didn’t win for ‘Bodak Yellow,’ everybody was like, ‘Cardi got snubbed, Cardi got snubbed.’ Now this year’s a fucking problem?”
Cardi B recounted her new album’s chart success and how she overcame the challenges of being pregnant to make it.
“I fucking worked my ass off, locked myself in the studio for three months ... then went to sleep in my own bed, sometimes for four days straight, pregnant,” she said.
