Cardi B laments inflation: ‘Everything is high’
“Up” rapper Cardi B is lamenting how the cost of nearly “everything” is going up amid rising inflation.
“I was looking last year or two years ago and the market is just extremely high, and that’s just, let’s say, when it comes to homes,” the singer said in a Thursday interview with “Extra’s” Billy Bush.
“Everything is high,” the 29-year-old performer, who was born Belcalis Almánzar, told Bush.
“The food is high, the products are high,” Cardi B said.
“We can’t even get products from, you know, certain countries,” she added.
The outspoken entertainer’s comments aired the same day that the Bureau of Labor Statistics reported that prices have risen 7.5 percent over the past year, and 0.6 percent from December to January.
While Cardi B — a critic of former President Trump’s who boasts more than 120 million Instagram followers — was a vocal supporter of Sen. Bernie Sanders (D-Vt.) during the 2020 White House race and starred in a campaign video alongside him, she said while promoting her Whipshots vodka-infused whipped cream that she hadn’t been in touch with the Senate Budget Committee chair as much since his presidential bid.
Asked if she was still “feeling the Bern” and had been keeping up with Sanders, she replied, “I have a little bit, but I haven’t really been keeping up with a lot of political stuff because it’s just getting very overwhelming.”
