After winning three American Music Awards Tuesday night and dazzling the crowd with her performance of “I Like It,” Cardi B is on top of the world — and telling her critics to shut up.
“It feels amazing, and it feels like such a wild thing. I feel like every obstacle I surpassed it,” she tells ABC News of her AMA wins. “Then people said I was going to be a one-hit wonder. Then I did a good album. Then I got pregnant and I don’t know what’s going to happen with my career, and then I still jumped up, pregnant and all, and it’s like, levels, levels, levels, and I keep beating.”
Cardi took home American Music Awards trophies for Favorite Rap/Hip-Hop Artist, Favorite Rap/Hip-Hop Song — “Bodak Yellow,” and Favorite Soul/R&B Song — “Finesse” with Bruno Mars.
The wife of Migos member Offset is currently dominating the hip-hop world as the first female rapper ever to score three number-one singles on the Billboard Hot 100, including the current number-one hit, “Girls Like You,” with Maroon 5.
“There’s nothing to beat,” Cardi adds. “I’m already doing it. I’m doing it great. I feel like I don’t have nothing to prove anymore. I proved everything.”
Now Cardi can celebrate her birthday in style: she turns 26 Thursday.
