Cardi B isn’t convinced aliens are real.
On the latest episode of Complex and First We Feast’s Hot Ones, host Sean Evans asked the “Bongos” rapper about her take on the existence of aliens in the wake of the U.S. government’s congressional hearing on UFOs. The question was inspired by another interview Cardi had done where she said she wanted to be asked more current events-related questions.
“I really don’t believe that aliens are real, because it’s like, okay, so if aliens are real, and they’re smarter than us, right? … Why they just haven’t invaded us?” she asked. “Aliens, if they smart, they know how humans are. Humans are despicable. They want to take over everything; they just want to have power over everything.”
She continued, “People be like ‘Why would aliens would want to invade Earth? Earth is ghetto. They probably so advanced, they probably think Earth is, like, a small fry. It’s not about that. It’s the art of war. If they so smart, like people think that they are, they would’ve been invading us just so they could just have us and not… I just know that they ain’t real! I don’t care!”
Cardi’s stance is in line with comments she’s made in the past, including a tweet from 2019 that reads, "Ya know damn straight aliens don't fuck with our stupid asses." Earlier this summer, she took to Instagram Live with husband Offset to debate the matter.
“I think that aliens exist. I think they’ve been hiding shit from a n***a this whole time,” said Offset. “I’ve been seeing UFOs. It’s live footage of them motherfuckers too now.”
“I feel like that shit is fake, the government’s trying to distract us,” countered Cardi later on in the livestream.
Cardi does, however, seem to believe in ghosts. Earlier this week, she recalled an incident from her Los Angeles mansion that led her to believe it’s being haunted by a ghost that wants to “fuck her.”
