In a viral video from New Year’s Eve, the rapper is seen singing along to her jam, “WAP,” featuring Megan Thee Stallion in an Instagram Live before quickly turning it off as her daughter, Kulture, walks into the room. The clip from Instagram Live immediately took off, while some fans began to question the rapper’s parenting after she defended her own risque lyrics all year.

Cardi B is now responding directly to some of the backlash. In a series of tweets, the rapper defended her decision to pause the song, explaining, “Ya needs to stop with this already ! I’m not jojosiwa ! I don’t make music for kids I make music for adults.Parents are responsible on what their children listen too or see. I’m a very sexual person but not around my child just like every other parent should be.”

She continued to defend herself in another tweet: “There’s moms who are strippers.Pop pussy ,twerk all night for entertainment does that mean they do it around their kids ? No! Stop makin this a debate.Its pretty much common sense.”

If her tweets confirm anything, it’s that Cardi B is going to continue to do things her way in this new year.

When accepting her Billboard Woman of the Year Award in 2020, Cardi spoke on some of the backlash “WAP” received from conservatives.

I’m just grateful and thankful that the song that I actually did put out this year, which was ‘WAP,’ featuring Megan Thee Stallion, not only was it an amazing song that broke so many records, but it was a conversation that I never thought was going to be so big,” she said. “It pissed off a whole bunch of Republicans for no reason.”
