The post, which has now been taken down from Instagram, described the concept of Cardi B posing as Goddess Durga as: “…she pays homage to Durga, the Hindu goddess, whose symbols of protection and inner strength resonate as much in modern times as they have through the centuries. Like Durga, Cardi B is a dominant female voice at a critical time.”

In the videos Cardi B shared in separate Instagram stories, the singer added: “When I did the shoot, the creator told me you are going to represent strength, femininity, liberation and that’s something I love and I’m all about it. And I thought it was dope. If people think I’m offending their culture or their religion, I want to say it was not my intent. I do not like offending anyone’s religion. I wouldn’t like it if someone did it to my religion.”


Cardi B is best known for her popular tracks such as Bartier Cardi, Bronx Season, Get Up 10, I Do, I Like It, among others.
