Cardi B has reacted to an upcoming episode of E!’s True Hollywood Story and claims she ‘did not approve’ of the episode.
It was recently announced that the WAP rapper will be the subject of the season two premiere of the rebooted series, which charts the rise to fame of Hollywood’s biggest stars.
However, it seems Cardi was unaware of the episode and has some feelings about her life being told allegedly without her permission.
She tweeted: ‘I love E! And I always been grateful for all the love but I did not approve of the E Hollywood story,” she wrote. “My life is my story. How can someone tell my story without asking me [sic]?’
Cardi, 28, is willing to give the documentary a chance and added: ‘But hey maybe the story will be good IDK [I don’t know]… I mean I haven’t seen it. However I would love to tell my story myself when I’m ready.
‘I been thru & been influenced by a lot of bad s**t since a teenager That when I’m ready I will like to talk about [sic].’
The episode will explore how Cardi, real name Belcalis Almanzar, propelled to stardom with humble beginnings on Love & Hip Hop: New York to chart success with Bodak Yellow and a historic Grammy win.
It will feature interviews with Love & Hip Hop creator Mona Scott-Young, music video director Picture Perfect and New York rapper Maino.
Fame has been cruel and kind to Cardi, who recently revealed that she’s faced ‘prejudice’ in the music industry and has been paid less than white celebrities for brand deals.
Speaking to Mariah Carey for Interview magazine, the rapper explained: ‘I don’t know if I would use the word “racism” because everything is so technical right now. I have felt prejudice.
‘I have been involved in endorsement deals, and then I found out that certain white people got more money for their deals from the same company.’
She continued: ‘I do my research. I know how much money I made [from] that company. My fans buy my s**t. So it’s like, “When you’re not paying me what you’re paying these other people, why is that?” It’s kind of insulting.’
Cardi also revealed she was bullied during her childhood and only found confidence in herself after getting plastic surgery.
