Cardi B says she ‘felt so out of place trying to be sexy’ while pregnant in Normani clip
Cardi B didn’t really feel her “Wild Side” before filming for Normani’s music video.
In an interview with Cosmopolitan, rapper “Up”, 28, shared that she “felt so out of place” when recording the music video for “Wild Side” while she was pregnant – but Normani, 25, helped her to feel comfortable.
“I didn’t feel like I belonged trying to be sexy and rapping ds and cs,” she said. “My body wasn’t sexy and it was the first time in public that I was naked with a big ass. But Normani is a natural dancer, so she said to me: ‘Yeah, Cardi is going like that, prisoner. of war !'”
Cardi explained that she “didn’t really want to do a lot of nudity” but decided to do so because no outfit matched her pregnant body well.

“I’ve done so much nudity in my videos before,” Cardi said. “It was the only thing that made sense back then because no clothes fit me well. I was about five and a half months pregnant, six months pregnant, so I couldn’t wear bustier or corset. “
“My stomach was obstructing all the outfits I wore, so I felt like the best way to hide it and hide it was with the hair and being naked,” she added. “We were just so beautiful and Normani was so sweet …
Cardi also had nothing but great things to say about the former Fifth Harmony member, describing Normani as “really sweet.”

“One of the reasons I did a song with her was because my stylist was working with her and he always said how such a nice person she was. A song with you ‘and I have says yes, ”Cardi said. “I was really freaking out because the song was supposed to be released in June, and I had just told the world I was pregnant, but the song was moved a bit in July.”
“Normani is a really great person and I can’t wait for the world to see her more. She’s one of those nice girls… I don’t think she has a bad girl in her body,” added Cardi. “She’s delicate and one of those people you want success for, you know?”

“I really want to release my album. After I release my album, I automatically want to go on tour. I also want to be in the best shape possible and I want to be mentally stable when I drop my album,” she said. “I’m having a baby and all … it’s not that I don’t want to rush, I just want to be right.”
“I don’t want to miss my baby’s first months and be really stressed out,” she added. “I don’t want to stress myself during my first months of having a baby because the postpartum [depression] hit me really hard last time, but I think it’s going to be okay. “
