Cardi B Reveals The Real Reason She Kept Her Pregnancy A Secret

"I'm SO disappointed that Cardi B is pregnant. Her career is at such a defining point, she’s got the industry eating out the palm of her hand," wrote one user.

"Honestly who let Cardi B get pregnant at the peak of her career" said another.

Speaking to Hot 97, the rapper - who is expecting her first child with Migos member, and fiancé, Offset - addressed her critics.

"I just wake up and do my job. Sometimes, women don’t even have a choice. I could really sit back down," Cardi admitted.

"Why can’t women do both? It’s so annoying to me. And you know the thing that I hated it the most? It was mostly women talking about “I feel sorry for her” or “Her career is over” - What do you mean my career is over?"

She added: "Now I’m more hungry. You think I’m gonna give up when I’ve got to feed me and my child? Negative."

Meanwhile, Cardi is set to take the stage at Coachella Music Festival this weekend. The 'Bodak Yellow' rapper recently revealed she plans on taking her baby with her whilst she supports Bruno Mars on tour later in the year.

Across the pond, Cardi pulled out of London's Wireless Festival at the beginning of July, which coincides with her rumoured due date. The rapper was set to headline alongside DJ Khaled, J Cole, Stormzy, Migos and more.
