She added, "However, I been taking a lot of s**t today, I'm seeing a lot of bull**** today and I saw a lot of s**t last night. And I'm sick of this. I worked hard for my motherf***ing album."

The ‘Bodak Yellow’ rapper defended her win and said that it takes a lot of effort to win a Grammy and that she put her soul into making music. She said, “I remember last year when I didn't win for 'Bodak Yellow', everybody was like, 'Cardi got snubbed, Cardi got snubbed'. Now this year's a f***ing problem? My album went two-time platinum. And every chart that there was, my album was always top 10. Number one album as well. "I f***ing worked my a** off, locked myself in the studio for three months... then went to sleep in my own bed, sometimes for four days straight, pregnant. Some songs couldn't even get on the f***ing album because my nose was so f***ing stuffy from my pregnancy….”
