Cardi B has given her beloved Bardi gang a closer look at her day-to-day life, not only as a chart-topping hitmaker but also as a mother.
On Tuesday (April 11), the Invasion of Privacy rapper gave fans an intimate glimpse into her life via a new TikTok clip. The video shows Cardi moving about her “regular day” — including taking care of her children, shopping, exercising, etc.
When at home, the Grammy-Award winner said she’s “Belcalis and not Cardi B,” according to the post’s caption. In the video, Cardi narrates her morning routine which begins before her two children awake.
She and her husband, Migos rapper Offset, share two children, Kulture and Wave. “Hi guys, it’s your girl, Cardi B,” she said in the TikTok video. “My fans have been wanting me to do more TikToks, so here I am.”
“I’m going to give you what a regular day is in my life as a regular person,” she continued. “As Becalis.”
The video of Cardi’s incredibly busy day as a mom ends with her enjoying a glass of wine, before heading to the studio to presumably work on her highly-anticipated sophomore album.
Hey yall …..A glimse of a regular day as BELCALIS and not CARDI B!!
Throughout her career, Cardi B has never shied away from sharing parts of her life or expressing her opinions. She recently expressed concern about child predators in a series of social media posts.
First taking to Twitter, the “Bodak Yellow” rapper expressed concern about the recent spike in child sexual abuse.
“This world is full of predators,” she wrote. “They prey on the innocent. The ones who are most unknowing, our children. Predators could be our neighbors, our school teachers, even people wit money, power & our churches. Constantly talk with your kids about boundaries and what they shouldn’t allow people to do to them.”
Cardi also shared that her mother wouldn’t allow her to have sleepovers when she was younger — and though she thought her mother’s concern was a sign of being overprotective, she understands why she did what she did today, as a mother herself.
In a separate Instagram Live video, she further elaborated on her comments, saying they were justified, particularly in light of a disturbing video featuring His Holiness The Dalai Lama, instructing a young boy to kiss him in the mouth and inviting him to “suck his tongue,” before sticking it out and leaning in close to him.
And though the Tibetian Buddhist leader subsequently issued an apology for his behavior, Cardi B wasn’t having it.
“This morning, I see this video of this guy — I don’t know what he is, if he’s like a monk or whatever,” she began. “I see that he kissed a boy on the mouth. And it’s just like, damn. This just goes back to the conversation I had yesterday. Some people take advantage of religion, and start doing perverted things to our children.”
