    Cardi B Said She Feels "Trapped" And "Sad" Trying To Be A Role Model

    "For these past two years, I've been watching what I say and I haven’t been myself."

    You know Cardi B. She's a 26-year-old Grammy award-winner who also happens to be the first female rapper to score two No. 1 hits on the Billboard Hot 100. Basically, she's impressive as hell.

    Well yesterday, after sharing an NSFW tweet of a graphic illustartion, Cardi wrote, "I'm just nasty like that."

    I’m just nasty like that 🤷🏽‍♀️

    Shortly after, one of her followers responded, saying that she didn't think Cardi was sending messages fit for a role model to young girls.

    Cardi, who's a mother to baby Kulture, responded:

    For these past two years I been watching what I say and I haven’t been myself.I been feeling trap and sad cause it’s not ME but everybody tell me to be it for me to be this “rolemodel”and guess what ? People still spit my past right in my face so for now imma be my old self again https://t.co/yyznDymIYp

    She said, "For these past two years I been watching what I say and I haven’t been myself."

    "I been feeling trap and sad cause it’s not ME but everybody tell me to be it...for me to be this 'rolemodel.'"

    "And guess what? People still spit my past right in my face."

    "So for now, imma be my old self again."

    Many people rallied behind Cardi and encouraged her to be her authentic self.

    @iamcardib @busblog Do you. You’re great, intelligent, and interesting and that’s plenty for anyone to look up to.

    @iamcardib Never change who you are. People will hate and/or love you either way. We are at our best when we are US and not pretending to be someone else.

    @iamcardib YES BE YOU SIS❤️❤️

    Others even argued that someone who is authentic and comfortable being who they truly are is the exact kind of role model people should look up to.

    @KenidraRWoods_ @iamcardib The message that you should receive from Cardi, is to be who YOU are. Not attempt to mirror who you hope (or think) someone else is. Never put anyone on a pedestal and keep moving towards your dreams. Cardi proves that, if nothing else. Now go be great!

    @iamcardib Do good, people say trash, do bad, people still say trash, the best way to survive the world is just do what's comfortable with you, whoever wants you as a role model should want you for your authenticity, not what everyone else thinks you should be! DO you!

    @iamcardib Your parents are supposed to be your role models. Cardi is an entertainer! If you don't feel comfortable with her "message " follow your own mind. That's what being an individual is about #GBU #maturerapmusic #Htown #3rdward

    TLDR;

    @iamcardib A true role model is authentically genuine to their own soul, real inspiration

    You keep doing you, Cardi!
