Moreover, Cardi reiterated that she is almost ready with her sophomore LP. But she wants to add some songs and does not feel very confident about putting it out. In these complicated times since she can not do proper press and is unable to tour.
Here, Cardi talks about being nervous around celebrities from the industry:
Carey: you have settles into the whole celebrity thing. In terms of connecting with other artists. Here people you have met and had a great relationship with? Like, they are cool, and you became friends. And then are there situations where you are like; “Well, I guess I could have been friends with this person if they had not acted such and such way?” I have noticed that in my life.
Cardi B: a lot of celebrities invite me to places, but I am really shy. We are doing this over the phone, but if it was in person. I would not be able to look you in the eyes. That’s how nervous I get around celebrities, and sometimes my head starts talking like, “Oh my gosh, I look stupid, I am dumb.”
