Cardi B Defended Her Right To Not Let Her 2-Year-Old Daughter Listen To “WAP”

January 5, 2021 / Posted by:

So there’s this Instagram Live video going around that shows Cardi B lip-synching to “WAP” at home with a glass of white wine. The life! She’s soon joined by her 2-year-old daughter Kulture, who races into the shot behind mommy’s back. When Cardi notices Kulture, she goes, “Ah no no no no no!” and immediately turns the song off. Huh. My parents had the exact same reaction when Kate Winslet showed her boobs in Titanic. But I guess this parenting choice upset some people on Twitter. Their logic was… Cardi is a hypocrite? Cuz she’s encouraging “everybody else’s daughter” to listen to the song, but not her own?

Here’s the video and tweet that started the controversy:

So what was she supposed to do? Let Kulture dance to WAP on Instagram Live and explain exactly what a Wet Ass Pussy is? Yes, I’m sure the moms of the Internet would have let that slide. But obviously, Cardi’s never heard the phrase “pick your battles”, because she clapped back at this criticism, explaining that she’s a very sexual person, but not around her child:

She also compared her job to moms who are strippers:

The comments were flooded with fans who agreed that it’s up to the parents to shield their kids from explicit songs like WAP. They also pointed out that male artists aren’t held to the same standard as female rappers like Cardi. But other Twitterers argued that, with iPads and YouTube and other kids at school, it’s hard for parents to stop their children from being exposed to Wet Ass Pussies.

After she got her point across, Cardi followed up by re-posting a tweet that gave her a laugh:

And it’s true. If Big Little Lies taught me anything, it’s that the wee ones pick up on everything.
