Cardi B. was sure that six weeks would be enough time for her to recover from giving her birth to her baby girl Kulture Kiari Cephus but now she has realized that she was wrong. Cardi took to Twitter to tell her fans that she would not be joining Bruno Mars on his Magic World Tour, saying it’s too early to return to work.
“As of today I’ve decided I won’t be joining Bruno on tour this Fall. I thought that after giving birth to my daughter that 6 weeks would be enough time for me to recover mentally and physicaly. I also thoguht that I’d be able to bring her with me on tour, but I think I understimated this whole mommy thing. Not only am I just not ready physically, I am not ready to leave my baby behind since the doctors explained it’s not healthy for her to be on the road. I hope you guys understand that this decision has been the hardest to make but I have to do what’s best for myself and my baby! Thank you Bruno for being so supportive and understanding.”
It seemed fans were not upset at all by her decision to care for her newborn instead of going on tour. One follower commented the rapper’s decision to stay home with her baby, “100% correct in your choice to not go on tour.”
Cardi B. had kept her pregnancy a secret before going public during an appearance as a musical guest on “Saturday Night Live” back in April. This is the rapper’s first baby with husband and fellow rapper Offset, whose legal name is Kiari Kendrell Cephus.
The Bronx-born rapper beat out Taylor Swift on the top Billboard Hot 100 and became the second female rapper to ever score a chart-topping solo song after Lauryn Hill in 1998. Before hitting it big with her breakout song “Cheap Ass Weave,” in 2015 and in 2016 she released her first full-length project, a mixtape titled “Gangsta Bitch Music, Vol 1.”
