Cardi B has been on a tumultuous ride of ups and downs in recent weeks and it seems she may be turning over a new leaf.

Days after posting that she was tired of dealing with the drama that comes with being famous, she shared a video that told another story.

The chart-topping rapper who has had multiple run-ins with the law as of late vowed to set a better example for her younger fans and suggested she will try to be a better role model.

“I realized, after Halloween, a lot of little girls, they be looking up to me,” she said in an Instagram video. “They love me, and I’m thinking to myself, like, ‘Yo, I really need to be a better example.’”

“I’m gonna change for you, little girls, because I deadass love ya.”

She also revealed how she came to be known as Cardi B during a recent interview on The Wendy Williams Show.

“My sister’s name is Hennessy, so everybody used to be like ‘Bacardi’ to me,” she said. “Then I shortened it to Cardi B. The ‘B’ stands for whatever, depending on the day…beautiful or bully… “No one calls me Belcalis except for my family, my mother and my daddy.”
