I’m a 36-Year-Old Mom Who LOVES Cardi B And I’m Not Ashamed [OPINION]
She may not be YOUR cup of tea, but I find her to be entertaining and I'm not afraid to say it, okurrrrrrrrrrrrrr?
I don't know why I feel like I can't say it out loud - is it because I'm a middle-aged working mom from Michigan? Is that the wrong demographic to love Cardi B? I don't think there's a wrong demographic to love ANYTHING, so I'm gonna shout it loud and proud:
I. AM. HERE. FOR. CARDI.
I didn't know who she was two years ago, and then I stumbled upon this gem from Jimmy Fallon.
Girl had me laughing out LOUD! Wait, she used to be a...STRIPPER?! *fake gasp*
I don't shame anybody for working. I don't care what you do - if you have a job and you're hustlin', get it get it. None of my business how you support yourself. And frankly, I don't have the body to strip so SOMEBODY has to do it, amirite?
Now, let's talk about her signature "noises."
If you can't laugh at THAT, I worry about your sense of humor. She clearly does not care what ANYBODY thinks of her, and I'll be honest - I'd love have that kind of confidence.
I feel like I can relate to her on a "mom" level. She got pregnant just as her career was taking off, and I, too, found out I was pregnant in my early 20s. I was 24 when I had my son. I had just graduated from college and was trying to start my radio career, and I had more than one person tell me that I couldn't do it because I had a baby.
Here I am, 13 years later, and I've been working full-time in radio ever since. I've supported my son with my career and I'm proud of that. So when I heard her Grammys acceptance speech about her daughter, I was a little vaklempt.
Anyways, THIS GIRL. She's living for the moment and I am HERE for her moment. I'm gonna Cardi BE a fan girl at her show at Bonnaroo this summer and I'm not ashamed of it AT ALL, okurrrrrrrrrrr? Just call me Aidy B.
