Cardi B tells her critics to back down: “I feel like I have nothing to prove anymore”

From October 10, 2018

Image Group LAAfter winning three American Music Awards Tuesday night and dazzling the crowd with her performance of “I Like It,” Cardi B is on top of the world -- and telling her critics to shut up.

“It feels amazing, and it feels like such a wild thing. I feel like every obstacle I surpassed it,” she tells ABC News of her AMA wins. “Then people said I was going to be a one-hit wonder. Then I did a good album. Then I got pregnant and I don’t know what’s going to happen with my career, and then I still jumped up, pregnant and all, and it’s like, levels, levels, levels, and I keep beating.”

Cardi took home American Music Awards trophies for Favorite Rap/Hip-Hop Artist, Favorite Rap/Hip-Hop Song  -- “Bodak Yellow,” and Favorite Soul/R&B Song -- “Finesse” with Bruno Mars.

The wife of Migos member Offset is currently dominating the hip-hop world as the first female rapper ever to score three number-one singles on the Billboard Hot 100, including the current number-one hit, “Girls Like You,” with Maroon 5.

“There’s nothing to beat,” Cardi adds. “I’m already doing it. I’m doing it great. I feel like I don’t have nothing to prove anymore. I proved everything.” 

Now Cardi can celebrate her birthday in style: she turns 26 Thursday.
