In the cover story, written by Marjon Carlos, Cardi B chats about politics and activism, from her outrage at the way Breonna Taylor was killed to her pleas to fans to become more civically engaged at all levels of government.
‘’You can vote for DAs. You can vote for mayors. You can vote for your district. Not everything is the president. You know what I’m saying?’’, she said.
Cardi also opened up about the frequent attempts to cancel her (‘’it’s like I have a target on my back, but it’s not because of my music’’), her sometimes-controversial relationship with husband Offset (‘’I feel like people would rather start rumors because they want me to be heartbroken’’) and her upcoming album (‘’my music is always going to make a woman feel like a bad bitch’’).
