Cardi B says she wants to move into politics: "I really love government"


American rapper and songwriter Cardi B has claimed her next ambition is to move into the world of politics.

The musician, whose meteoric rise to fame has been relentless, has emerged as one of the best selling and most influential female rappers of all time despite only releasing her debut album in 2018.

The record, which went to number one in the charts and was certified triple platinum, earned Cardi B a Grammy Award for Best Rap Album—an accolade which means she is B the only woman to win the award as a solo artist.

Now though, as she prepares to release her second studio album later this year, the rapper has suggested she may be contemplating a life in politics after becoming inspired by documentaries. “I think I want to be a politician,” Cardi announced on social media. “I really love government even tho I don’t agree with [our] Government.”  

 She added: “Like I was watching War documentaries. No matter how many weapons a country have you need people! How are you trying to go against a country and possibly start a war when this country lacks patriotism? I barely see people claiming they LOVE being American.”

“I will have to explain a lot so I will have to do a video or a live talking about it… So imma come back to my last two tweets another day. Imma talk about it another day,” she wrote.
