Cardi B: Don’t tell me How To Spend My Money
The mother of one Cardi B stated that celebrities spend money however they want because they do so to maintain a certain lifestyle which they worked hard for.
The singer has slammed all those who love to criticize celebrities when they spend on material things in an extravagant way.
Speaking in a video posted on her social media page, Cardi stated that no one has the right to question how she spends her money, especially those who love to ask why a celebrity couldn’t donate such money, perhaps to charity.
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.”
“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 sht to please y’all – that sht 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.”
