Throughout the conversation, Cardi sounded both exhausted by her fame and thankful that she's gotten this far. Here are some of the most intriguing revelations from the discussion.

Organizing a wedding is difficult under ordinary circumstances, but it becomes a herculean effort when the two people getting married are the biggest rap couple in the world with a child on the way. Cardi explained why her marriage to Offset is taking a brief backseat, saying, "I'm not having a wedding [while] pregnant, no. I want to wear my dream dress and I want to get drunk on my wedding and I want to go on a honeymoon and I want to be drunk for a whole week."

"People used to be like, 'maybe you should do therapy,'" Cardi stated. "And I used to be like, uh-uh, colored folks, we don’t need none of that. We just go to church, and we pray about it. And then it’s just like... I think it’s a little bit more than that. I don’t want people to think I’m not enjoying this moment, [but] it’s just a lot to handle."
