Cardi B was a stripper before she saw chart success with her music.
The WAP singer has gone on to win a Grammy award and receive nominations for seven others.
Did Cardi B used to work as a stripper?
Cardi B has been very open about her past job as a stripper before her rise to fame.
On her official website she says stripping allowed her to escape poverty and domestic violence, explaining that she was in an abuse relationship at the time.
She added: “It really saved me from a lot of things. When I started stripping I went back to school.”
Cardi B spoke CBS Sunday Morning about her time stripping, telling them that: “A lot of women here, they taught me to be more powerful.
“I did gain, like, a passion and love [for] performing. It made me feel pretty… I’m glad for this chapter in my life.
“A lot of people always want to make fun of me – ‘Oh, you used to be a stripper!’ – I don’t ever regret it, because I learned a lot.
“I feel like it matured me. My biggest ambition was money. That’s what these women put in my head: nothing is important but the money.”
Which strip clubs did she work at?
The strip club Cardi B has openly named is the New York Dolls, based as the name suggests in New York.
She told Fader that she was fired from a deli after giving someone a hefty discount.
Her manager then told her she was “pretty” and had “a nice body”, suggesting that she work across the street at the New York Dolls strip club.
Cardi B began working there aged 19.
She claimed that during her first shift there she made $300 in eight hours.
