Cardi B hits out at ‘insulting’ pay disparity in music industry

Written by on 24 februari 2021

Cardi B has slammed the “insulting” pay disparity in the music industry, admitting she has “felt prejudice” when she’s been paid less than her white peers. The WAP star opened up to Mariah Carey in a chat for Interview magazine, during which she reflected on the different salaries for white musicians and those of colour.

“I don’t know if I would use the word ‘racism’ because everything is so technical right now. I have felt prejudice,” she explained. “I have been involved in endorsement deals, and then I found out that certain white people got more money for their deals from the same company. I do my research. I know how much money I made (for) that company. My fans buy my s**t. So it’s like, ‘When you’re not paying me what you’re paying these other people, why is that?’ It’s kind of insulting.”
