Vocal rap sensation, Cardi B has taken to Instagram to slam those who criticise celebrities when they spend lavishly on material things.
The mother of one who has always been one to express her views and opinions without mincing posted a video explaining why celebrities sometimes have to do this citing fan pressure as one of the reasons.
The mother of one stated that celebrities spend money however they want because they have to maintain a certain lifestyle which they worked hard for.
She added that nobody also has the right to question another person how they spend money especially by asking them (celebrities) to donate the money to a charity or a worthy cause.
In the video, she said:
“You know what I hate? I hate when celebrities do something very extravagant, buy something very luxurious – there’s people in the comments like, ‘You could’ve donated that! Oh, we goin’ backwards! You could’ve done this and that with your money!’ And it’s like, ‘Who are you to tell people what to do with they hard workin’-a** money?’ First of all, do you know that artists, celebrities – the IRS, out of every check that you make, they automatically take 45% of your check. That means in order to spend 500,000, you gotta make at least a million.”
The “Money” rapper continued:
“Then, like, a artist like me, and a lot of rappers that I know – they literally take care of they whole family. And that’s not tax reducible because the IRS don’t consider that a business. On top of that – being an artist, looking good for y’all, doin’ all this extra sh*t to please y’all – that sh*t costs money! Like, me, for example – my bills, it’s like I’ll say about $300,000, [or] $250,000 every single month. And I try to put it cheaper, and it’s just not.”
It would be recalled that Cardi B who separated from her husband, Offset has revealed that they are working on their marriage.
