RAPPER CARDI B has spoken out against the #MeToo and Time's Up movements, saying she doesn't think women in hip-hop will reap the benefits of it. She even remarks on her own experiences while coming up as a rising vixen, claiming that people have exposed themselves to her in the past.
"When I was trying to be a vixen, people were like, 'You want to be on the cover of this magazine?'", she said. "I was always woke about gender issues and always stood up for women's right, but when #Metoo started I had to completely reevaluate the way I interacted with women". You're a ho. It don't matter.'

The rising star recently sat down with Cosmopolitan to discuss, among other topics, never toning down her large personality, her fiancé Offset's alleged cheating scandals and why she is skeptical of the "commercial appeal" of the #MeToo movement.
