Some Cardi B fans aren’t as excited as the rapper is that she’s trying to expand her business portfolio.
Cardi has already expressed the fact that she can’t tweet anything without being bombarded with messages about dropping new music–and that bothers her. The other day, when she simply tried to compliment Lizzo on a recent photo shoot, her replies were filled with questions about when both artists were going to collab, which seemingly drove Cardi up a wall.
On Friday, the rapper took to Twitter to announced a new business venture: a doll. She stopped by The TODAY Show to talk about the release.
“.@iamcardib joins us this morning with an exclusive announcement: she is launching a doll!” the TODAY Show tweet reads. “Cardi B talks to us about the inspiration behind the project and why it was important for her to help design a doll that looks like her and is diverse.”
While this is an exciting move for the Bronx native, fans weren’t so impressed. Unsurprisingly, some impatient followers expressed their disappointment over the 28-year-old releasing a custom doll rather than a new album. She ended up getting so many messages expressing that same sentiment, she deactivated her Twitter account.
Then, Cardi took to Instagram live to explain her frustration.
“I have so much pressure. I’m working on a lot of **t to please people,” she said on an Instagram Live. “I wanna please my fans, because y’all been asking for something from me for a very long time that I can’t say, and I’m doing it for ya…’eh, you’re dropping a f***ing doll, we want an album!’ How am I supposed to be rich? How am I supposed to build my net worth?”
Luckily for Belcalis, her doll sold out in minutes–so it looks like not everyone was disappointed in the announcement.
