Cardi B says strippers and video vixens are being left behind in the #MeToo movement because no one believes them.
Cardi B is always outspoken about the struggles of strippers and vixens in the industry because that’s where she is coming from before becoming a household name as a rapper. The “Bodak Yellow” rapper says she has her own #MeToo experience but never really talk about them because no one will really believe vixens because of the hoe label placed on them.
The Bronx rapper gets candid in an interview with Cosmopolitan magazine where she touched on the movement that started last year that’s rocking Hollywood. “A lot of video vixens have spoke about this, and nobody gives a f**k,” she said. “When I was trying to be a vixen, people were like, ‘You want to be on the cover of this magazine?’ Then they pull their d**ks out. I bet if one of these women stands up and talks about it, people are going to say, ‘So what? You’re a ho. It don’t matter.’”
Of course, hip-hop wouldn’t be hip-hop without video vixens. These are the banging ladies you see shaking their booties in the clubs and in some of the most iconic music videos in rap history. There are some females who built their names from the ground up as a video vixen and some are actresses today and some have even become artists and reality show stars.
Even though vixens are important to the culture, they are not often given the same respects as models and actresses even though in a lot of cases they are faced with the same levels or even more sexual harassment in the industry. Cardi B is now saying she is on a mission to get some more respect for vixens because that’s where she is coming from.
