Cardi B is defending her decision to feature Kylie Jenner in her “WAP” music video.
After the visual for the hot song dropped, many fans voiced their opinions on having Kylie in the video at all and also spoke out about the comparisons she noticed between Kylie and Normani, who is also in the video.
“Normani did ALL this and Kylie walked down the hall and opened a door. If that’s not a perfect visual indication of Black women having to do the most…” one Twitter user posted and Cardi responded to it.
“Normani is one of the best female artist that dances like she dances her f***in ass off!” Cardi wrote. “Why would she open a door? Please tell me how that would make sense? The best part of the song is the beat and hook, it what makes you want to shake your ass.”
She went on, “Not everything is about race. Theres issues out here in the world that is about race and I preach all the time about. This is not about f***in race.”
Cardi continued, “Why did I put Kylie on my music video? She treated my sister and daughter so lovely at her kid’s bday party. Travis and Set are real close and Kris Jenner have given me advice on certain things I ask for and her husband real cool with mine.”
