"Love & Hip Hop: New York" fans were upset that Instagram sensation Cardi B didn't appear on the Season 6 premiere, but the former stripper recently dished on what fans can expect from her on the VH1 show. As previously reported, Cardi B is one of the newbies this season. She joins other new cast members DJ Self, Mariah Lynn, Young B, Remy Ma and Papoose, and rap duo BBOD.
The 23-year-old told Power 105.1's The Breakfast Club that fans will get to see a lot more of her personal and dating life. It's believed that Cardi B has been hooking up with her co-star DJ Self, even though she's technically not off the market. Her boyfriend is currently serving two years in jail.
“Every Monday night at 8 p.m. you’ll see everything that you need to see and everything will unfold,” said DJ Self, who did the interview with Cardi B.
The outspoken ex-stripper also opened up about how nervous she is for people to watch her on TV every week.
“Like the blogs and everything, they just get me a little nervous. They just overwhelm me,” she admitted. “This whole popular thing, just being in the [limelight] it’s so overwhelming for me. I’m smiling but my chest be beating so fast. It’s just too much for me.”
She added, “It’s no wonder that some of these celebrity folks be killing themselves and doing drugs. Y’all people have some nerve… These people disrespectful out here.”
Cardi B also talked about the backlash she gets during an interview with Complex, saying that the negative comments almost made her shut down her Instagram account. “I couldn’t take the pressure. Then I started seeing that a lot of girls kept writing to me like, ‘Yo, I feel so confident about my body because you just show me I shouldn’t care,’” she said. “There’s a couple of people talking s--- about me, but there’s many more girls saying that I inspire them.”
Even though Cardi B is known for her over-the-top personality, she told VH1 that the message she hopes people take away from seeing her on the show is that "you got to change your ways.”
Season 6 of "Love & Hip Hop: New York" kicked off Dec. 14. Be sure to check out new episodes every Monday at 8 p.m. EST on VH1.
