New York rapper Cardi B knows she has a loyal following. The hip-hop diva has released a clip explaining why it’s time to tone things down for her younger fan base.

Cardi went to Instagram this week and credited seeing little girls dressing up as her for Halloween as inspiration to become a better role model.

“Hey y’all, what’s popping? I look ugly, give me one second – I realized after Halloween that a lot of little girls, they be looking up to me and they love me or whatever. I’m thinking to myself, ‘Yo, I really need to be a better example.’ But I be trying to be a better example though. I be trying to be more PG-13, less rated R but I be hanging out with my hoodrat friends and then they f*ck me up all over again. Like, they just mess me up all over again. I be trying and then these b*tches be like – but I’m gonna change for y’all little girls because I love y’all.”

😍😍😍😍😘😘😘for my wittle ones

This week, Cardi addressed working together with fellow rapper Nicki Minaj on their new “Motorsport” collaboration.

“I mean yes,” Cardi said when asked if “Motorsport” was meant to stop the beef rumors between herself and Nicki Minaj. Like I mean, yes, practically, and it’s just like it’s so annoying like it’s just like I feel like people wouldn’t even be satisfied even if me and her was making out on a freaking photo. Or if I was with any other female artist. I feel like people just want that drama because it’s just entertaining.” (Complex)
