Cardi B Reveals the Stars She Wants to Be Like After Previously Looking Up to 'Nobody'

Cardi B has previously said that she doesn’t look up to anyone in the entertainment industry, but now she’s changing her tune.

The 28-year-old “WAP” rapper gave an interview to Stationhead this week and talked about the stars she looks up to now.

“When I came to the game and people used to be like, ‘Who do you look up to?’ I always used to say, ‘I don’t look up to nobody,’ because I didn’t really understand the game and I only feel like I got influenced by the people that was around me,” Cardi said.

“But now that I’m at the level that I’m at, one of my biggest influences is Rihanna and Jay-Z,” she added. “And I’m not just saying it to kiss ass or anything. I just feel like they’re so influential because Rihanna comes from a country, a Caribbean country, that my parents came from and she’s a whole billionaire.”

Cardi hopes to reach the same level of success as Rihanna and Jay.

“But for her to make her business so big and be a billionaire, that’s what I strive to be. That’s what I want. I want to be a billion-dollar woman. I want to build a huge brand,” she said. “And Jay-Z, he’s from the hood just like me. He’s from the hood and this man’s a whole billionaire. And that’s just all about strategy and that’s just all about shaking hands, that’s just all about putting plans together.”

Cardi took to social media this week to respond to criticism of her “WAP” performance at the Grammys.
