Cardi B Praises Beyoncé for Not Addressing News About Herself: ‘Every Artist Should Do What Works for Them’

“Some people claim they have problems with me because I address everything or because I’m too problematic,” explains the rapper

Cardi B may clap back at her fair share of online trolls — and in-person drink throwers — but she admires the way Beyoncé ignores news about herself and largely stays out of controversies.

In a new interview on The Spout podcast, the Grammy-winning rapper voiced praise for Queen Bey’s penchant for staying out of public drama, noting that it’s inspired her to stay quiet sometimes too.

“Surprisingly, I have held myself back a lot — from a lot of things. You see how Beyoncé addresses her things? She does not address them at all,” said Cardi, 30.

“I feel like every artist should do what works for them and what’s good for they mental health because I feel like, if addressing things, to Beyoncé, affects her mental health, then don’t do it,” continued the “Bongos” rapper,

For Cardi, however, she ultimately prefers to respond to haters and doesn’t feel like “bottling things inside” benefits her.

“I’d rather just let it out,” she told the host Tamra Dhia. “So, I feel like everybody should, like, address their issues however they feel like they’re going to be comfortable in doing. That’s how I feel. Everybody is different.”

At the end of the day, Cardi feels as though people will “always find something” to dislike about others.

“Some people claim they have problems with me because I address everything or because I’m too problematic,” she explained. “Somebody might call me a name, and I’m gonna call you a harsher name, so people are gonna say that I’m problematic, or I’m mean or always finding negative things and addressing it.”

In Cardi’s life, she’s seen people who exude either positivity or negativity both receive similar levels of hate, citing Chloe Bailey as an example of someone who’s “always positive” but still faces backlash.

“People still give her a hard time. People are gonna just always find something to say,” she said. “Address it how you want to address it. If you want to cuss somebody out today because it’s gonna make you feel better, then do it. If you don’t wanna address these people, and it’s like, ‘You a peasant to me,’ then do that. Whatever makes you feel good.”
