Cardi B On Why She Refuses To Hire A Babysitter: I Can’t Trust People
She told Zane Lowe on Apple Music’s New Music Daily:
“You’ve got to balance it out.”
Still, she said caring for a toddler while having a full-blown music career is difficult.
“It’s just been so hard, because when I’ll be in the studio, I’ll just be like, ‘I just want to go home with my kid. I just want to go home with my kid.’”
Cardi B continued,
“These past months … like, the music video for the song (‘Up’), I was doing rehearsals. I was doing Zoom, every meeting, because these music videos, I take that sh– to heart. Like, it has to be perfect. It’s got to be amazing. I sent my daughter to New York for two weeks, and I was just to the point that I was just crying. I’m like, ‘I’ve got to get my kid.’ It’s really complicated.”
She added that because of the COVID-19 pandemic, she doesn’t want to rely on her mother to take a flight and help out.
“You know what I’m saying? I don’t have a babysitter, and I don’t want to be flying out my mom, because of COVID.”
She said she had a completely different perspective when she was pregnant with Kulture, who is her first child.
“When I was pregnant, I was just like, ‘You know, I’m just going to get a babysitter, and she’s going to go on the road everywhere with me.’ And then once we had a baby, it’s like your mindset changed. It’s like, ‘I don’t want to have a babysitter. I’m scared. I don’t want nobody taking my kid nowhere. I don’t want nobody touching my kid.’ Like, I can’t trust people.”
She also said she and her husband, along with her mother are “so old-school that they just don’t believe in babysitters.”
