Rapper Cardi B has been involved in an ongoing $5 million lawsuit pertaining to the album cover of her 2016 mixtape "Gangsta [expletive] Music Vol. 1." The legal action was taken because plaintiff Kevin Brophy Jr. believes the back tattoo of the man on the album art resembles his own a bit too closely, which has misappropriated his image. Due to being in and out of court regarding this matter, Cardi made quite a few interesting statements in her newly-public deposition from April.

According to Vulture, the "I Like It" rapper attempted to illustrate why she chose the particular image for her album. In doing so, she used quite the unusual reference to further her point of why the photo served a specific purpose in her mind.

"I'm not a pretty girl, or I am a pretty girl, but I'm not like this, this pink girly girl. I'm, like, the Buttercup, you know? There's three powerful girls. There's Blossom, and there's Bubbles and there's Buttercup, the green one. That's me. That's who I am," she said in the newly-released documents.

The "Bodak Yellow" rapper also made it clear that she feels the lawsuit should come to a close in the near future. "I could really be with my kid right now," she said, adding, "This is four hours long taking away from my time, my job, my motherhood," she stated. However, the lawsuit appears to be continuing until a final agreement can be reached.

As for what the musician is doing outside of the legal system, her upcoming movie "Hustlers" is set to open on Sept. 13, but fans can get a sneak peek of the character she'll be playing ahead of time.
