When it comes to hip-hop superstar Cardi B’s relationship with her #Bardigang fan army, very few topics are off-limits. Seemingly overnight, the “Bodak Yellow” record-breaker cultivated a loyal stan army of devotees drawn to her unflinching ability to show the world the low points of both her life and celebrity culture as a whole.
Pouring her transparent ascent to the top of Hollywood’s fame rankings into her art, Bardi even raps about her open-book lifestyle on “Best Life,” a track from her recently released studio album “Invasion of Privacy.”
“I said I never had a problem showin’ y’all the real me/Hair when it’s f—ed up, crib when it’s filthy/Way-before-the-deal me, strip-to-pay-the-bills me/Fore I fixed my teeth, man, those comments used to kill me/But never did I change, never been ashamed/Never did I switch, story stayed the same,” raps Bardi, referencing her refusal to let her sudden fame and fortune change her down-to-earth personality.
Taking her close relationship with her fans one step further, Cardi B recently hopped onto Twitter to show her millions of followers that she’s down to answer any and all NSFW postpartum questions.
Cardi B isn’t afraid to keep it real
After captioning a photo of her husband Offset, “Hey cowboy, I want to take a ride on your horse,” a fan slipped into the comments section to make a wisecrack about the rapper’s post-birth hiatus from gettin’ freaky in the sheets.
“3 weeks and 4 days Yes bitch I’m counting, wassup! 😂😩,” replied the “Be Careful” hitmaker.

Unsurprisingly, the comments section soon lit up with Bardi’s stan army praising her NSFW reveal about her postpartum limitations. Even though she has the full force of a top industry label behind her, Bardi proves time and again that you don’t have to rely on a marketing machine of PR statements and outings to connect with your fans.
Thankfully, fame has truly only changed Cardi B for the better by giving her an elevated platform to show the world that you don’t need to hide who you are to make it to the top.
