“Love and Hip Hop New York” star Cardi B had no idea she would blow up the way she has.
In fact, many thought she’d be a dancer forever.
In a recent interview with the New York Post, Cardi opened up about her fears.
And she was terrified that she would have to dance to support herself financially for the rest of her life.
Even her critics didn’t think she’d be able to retire.
Here’s an excerpt from the interview:
Her road to rapper and reality star wasn’t an easy one, however. Born to a Trinidadian mother who is a cashier and a Dominican father who drives a cab, Cardi B says she started working as a stripper at age 18. She finally quit at age 23, but even that was a scary move.
“People would make me cry when they told me all I was ever going to be was a stripper. I stopped dancing last year on my birthday, Oct. 11,” she says.
“My manager told me I had to quit dancing but I did not want to quit,” she adds. “What if my career don’t pop? I will just end up back in the strip club and people would laugh at me.
