On her love for political science:

“I love political science,” says Cardi. “I love government. I’m obsessed with presidents. I’m obsessed to know how the system works.

On meeting Beyonce:

“I’m too nervous, I’m too shy,” she shares. “When I met Beyoncé, people be like, ‘How that felt? I bet you was mad happy,’” Cardi says. “It’s like, ‘Actually, I wanted to shit on myself.”

On not being in control of her life:

“I feel like I’m not in control of my life,” she admits. “I would have to call so many people. I would have to call the label, my management, my publicist. It’s like a partnership. I’m the artist, but I don’t feel like I have a higher position than anybody that’s working for me. If I don’t want to work tomorrow, I cannot just stop working, because then, how’s other people gonna feed their family? It is a lot of pressure.”
