Cardi B has a message for those who don’t believe she earned the right to be named Billboard’s Woman of the Year.
The “Bodak Yellow” star took to Instagram on Wednesday (Nov. 18) to let her haters know she rightfully earned that title. “Morning y’all, it’s your girl Cardi B and yes, I am Woman of the Year,” she said in the video. “And for you cry babies like, ‘But she only got one song!’ Yeah, I got that song, bitch. You know, the one that sold the most? The one that streamed the most? The one that had Republicans crying on Fox News about it. The one that have a song that’s about to be six times platinum in three months. The one that had your grandma popping her pussy on TikTok. Yeah bitch, that one.”
The former “Love and Hip Hop New York” star also reminded the critics that she used her platform to help educate those on voting and the presidential election.
“And on top of that, boy, for over a year…I’ve been influencing, using my platform for y’all to vote,” she continued. “Not just when Joe Biden was going against Trump. I’ve been informing y’all about y’all’s senators. I’ve been informing y’all about districts. Midterm elections. Using my own money to meet up with these candidates like Bernie. Flying out, tired after shows. Yeah, that’s me, bitch.”
“Even when y’all was crying like, ‘But she don’t represent us!’” she concluded. “Yes I do, bitch. I represent America. I wanted a change and that’s exactly what the fuck I did. And eat it up. I’m just that bitch. Eat it up with a spoon so y’all can get a mouthful.”
REVOLT previously reported that Billboard named Cardi the Woman of the Year because of her brand new Reebok deal, her involvement in political activism and for her highly successful Megan Thee Stallion-assisted single “WAP,” which topped the Billboard Hot 100 chart for several weeks.
Billboard’s Women in Music event is set to air virtually on Dec. 10 at 8 p.m. ET. The show will be hosted by Teyana Taylor and other artists such as Jennifer Lopez, Chloe x Halle and Dolly Parton will also be honored.
