The 26-year-old rapper worked in a strip club prior to becoming one of the world's most recognisable music stars, and Cardi has confessed to enjoying the job, insisting she doesn't have any regrets about it.
During a visit to the Satin Dolls strip club in Manhattan, she shared: "A lot of the women here they taught me to be more powerful. I did gain, like, a passion and love to performing. It made me feel pretty."
Asked whether the experience made her feel powerful, Cardi told CBS: "Yes. I'm glad for this chapter in my life.
"A lot of people always want to make fun of me, like, 'Oh, you used to be a stripper.' I don't ever regret it. I don't ever regret it."
The 'Bodak Yellow' hitmaker claimed the experience of working as a stripper meant she became more mature.
