Last year, rapper Cardi B became a mom for the first time, and according to Music News, her daughter Kulture is her best friend. The publication reported that the “Be Careful” hitmaker spoke to E! about how much she loves and adores her newborn.
“She is so fun, she is cool, like, I love her… She’s, like, my little best friend. She just makes the gloomiest days like sunshine. I love it. It’s is [sic] a slice of heaven,” she expressed.
Cardi admits that she finds being a mother and a performer in the entertainment industry is hard to balance. She explained that she wants the idea of getting a nanny every time to be canceled because she doesn’t want anyone else around her daughter.
“You cannot just travel with your baby all the time like they get sick,” she said about traveling the world with Kulture.
This past weekend, Cardi B performed at the Coachella Festival and her daughter wasn’t with her this time. She and Selena Gomez both hit the stage with DJ Snake to perform their smash hit, “Taki Taki.” This was a year after Cardi’s set at the 2018 event, which was one of the highlights. She was heavily pregnant with Kulture when she appeared last year. The Inquisitr reported on her performance with Gomez over the weekend.
