Cardi B’s rise to fame was meteoric. Fans fell in love with her outlandish antics on VH1’s “Love & Hip Hop: New York,” and after releasing her 2017 single, “Bodak Yellow,” life has never been the same.

However, during an Instagram Live session on Tuesday, she called the fame a “curse” and wished to return to a life of anonymity.

“I really hate it. Let me tell ya something, if you ever wish to be rich and famous, don’t wish to be famous, wish to be rich. Y’all seen me these couple of days right? You see that I been partying, going to the club with my n—ga and everything,” she shared with her fans. “Y’all see that I been in a good mood. Once I step out, once I start doing anything that will go on social media, it’s always bad. I’m so sick of it. I hate it.”

On Monday night, Cardi B looked stunning Metropolitan Museum of Art’s annual Costume Institute Gala. The rapper wore a dazzling gold Atelier Versace gown boasting gold chains throughout her dress.

Since becoming one of the world’s most successful rappers, she has gotten married, given birth to two children and enjoyed several Billboard number ones.

“Why me?” Cardi continued. “I feel like God cursed me with, deada—. Dead-f—king a—. God really cursed me with fame because fame is just like… oh God. Ugh. I hate it here. If I could click my f—king feet three times and go back to f—king 2013 when I was just a regular b—th, dancing and making money every single night. That’s where I wanna be. That’s when I was me, not even 2016. That’s when I was me. This whole go-by-the-books stuff, gotta watch what you say. Gotta watch what you do. This is not me bro. This is ridiculous. I don’t even understand how I always get in trouble. I feel like I’m always in trouble. I feel like I’m a celebrity that always be in the principle’s office, bro.”
