Cardi B Named Star of The Year By ‘People En Español’ Magazine [Photos]

Posted October 30, 2018

Fresh off of yesterday’s explosive social media back and forth with Nicki Minaj, Billboard topper Cardi B has now been named the star of the year by ‘People En Español‘ magazine.

The star took to Instagram on Wednesday to share her stunning cover and some snaps from the shoot. Get into the pics and some of the interview highlights below.

On Motherhood:

Her biggest treasure by far is her first-born daughter with husband Offset. The Migos rapper — whose real name is Kiari Kendrell Cephus — actually came up with the baby’s name, culture with a “K,” a name Cardi loved from moment she heard it. The baby, who was born in July, is all smiles and very alert — and keeping her mom on her toes. “When I get home, she’s most likely gonna be up,” says Cardi B at the end of this shoot, already late at night. “And she’s gonna go to sleep whenever she feels like it; so, if she feels like going to sleep at 6 o’clock in the morning, I’m gonna have to go to sleep at 6 o’clock in the morning. I can’t sleep until she’s completely asleep.”

On getting help with her daughter from family:

Reluctant to hire professional nannies, Cardi B has gotten support primarily from key women in her clan: her mother, sister and grandmother. “[When she’s] with my grandmother or with my mother, I balance it out because everybody gets tired,” says Cardi, who feels at ease leaving the baby in her family’s home in New York City’s Washington Heights neighborhood. “I don’t like going to sleep and leaving them with the responsibility of my baby because I know they just as tired as me. Same way I wanna sleep, they wanna sleep.”

On her recent Nicki Minaj altercation and other drama:

But not everything has been peace and love for Cardi B — the moniker that took over her real name, Belcalis Marlenis Almanzar. Two incidents grabbed headlines in September: The first was her confrontation with fellow rapper Nicki Minaj during a New York Fashion Week event (from which Cardi emerged with a welt on her head after reportedly throwing a shoe at Minaj. According to her, Minaj criticized her role as a mother, something Minaj denied). The second was a fight in a strip club in which two women allege the rapper ordered an attack on them because one of them supposedly had had an affair with Offset. (The day after this photo shoot, Cardi B turned herself in to New York authorities in connection to the latter case. As we were going to print, she had a pending court date to answer those charges.) To those who criticize her, she has this short answer: “I don’t really care much.”
