During Instagram Live after the Met Gala Party, Cardi B said the price of being a celebrity has created constant ridicule and has put a target on her back.
She feels like a prisoner of fame and that she hasn't been able to be her true self since 2014.
Cardi’s video comes after she got backlash for how she was at the Met Gala after-party. In one clip, she encouraged partygoers to drink up but then did a snorting gesture that didn’t sit well with people.
Cardi Cardi insists it was just “a joke." She feels like she can't even make jokes anymore without people taking it seriously.
There's also a clip of Billie Eilish at the bash, who many thought was calling Cardi "weird" as she entertained guests. Cardi squashed that rumor too, posting DMs between her and Billie where Billie says she was only calling the partygoers taking photos of Cardi's butt “weird."
Cardi says she too once had a dream to be rich and famous, but said the fame just isn’t worth it.
