Cardi B seems to have her hands full already with two kids under 3 and an eagerly anticipated album to finish. She got a bit of help this week when she asked daughter Kulture Kiari, 3, if she was interested in having another little one in the house. According to People, during an Instagram Story on Monday (Feb. 28), the rapper asked Kulture, “you want me to have another baby?”
Kulture didn’t hesitate a second before reportedly responding “No!” When Cardi asked her first-born why she didn’t want to add to her mom and dad Offset‘s brood — which also includes their 5-month-old son — Kulture had a ready answer: “Because I like my baby brother. He’s perfect.” The couple’s second-born, whose name has not yet been revealed, was born on Sept. 4, 2021.
Like a lot of artists, Cardi also had some thoughts on Russian President Vladimir Putin’s invasion of Ukraine, though she made sure to measure her words very carefully when weighing in. Just days before the assault of Russia’s neighbor, Cardi got political for a minute about Putin deploying a massive phalanx of troops to the region.
“Wish these world leaders stop tripping about power and really think about whose really getting affected (citizens) besides the whole world is in a crisis,” she tweeted in the early morning hours of Feb. 22, after a fan wondered about her thoughts on Putin’s actions. “War,sanctions,invasions should be the last thing these leaders worry about.”
When a fan questioned whether Cardi was really behind the tweet, she clarified in a video, explaining that she had a lot of thoughts but was being cautious for a good reason. “This phone is not hacked, it’s really me!” she said in the nearly minute-long clip. “I actually want to say a lot of things, but I’m just gonna mind my business because sometimes, I feel like I have such a big platform that if I don’t say the right things, I might get killed.”
The rapper is hard at work on her follow-up to 2018’s smash debut, Invasion of Privacy, whose release date and title have not yet been announced.
