Cardi B wants the world to know she’s in a happy state of mind. And there’s nothing her haters can say to stop that.

The Bronx rapper made this very clear in a recent social media video, in which she addressed the criticism over her no-makeup look. Cardi said she filmed the message just 20 minutes after waking up, before she had the chance to do any kind of grooming.

“This is me with no makeup, no filter. You can see all the little blemishes on my face, shit you can see my lips are all chapped, I’ve been biting (them) all night,” she began. “I just woke up 20 minutes ago, I didn’t even brush my hair. I feel good … Every single a time a bitch is feeling good … When y’all see them doing good, you try to put their confidence down. That don’t work on my anymore.”

The video was posted just weeks after Cardi took to Twitter seeking skincare advice. The 28-year-old admitted she was experiencing breakouts and “extremely dry” skin, and asked for product and dermatologists recommendations.
