Playboy commented on her post and said “welcome to the family.”

In a press release shared with People, the “WAP” hitmaker talked about how “Centerfold” would be a “safe” platform where up-and-coming creatives can embrace their “sexuality.”

“They deserve to feel safe in their creativity and sexuality,” the superstar performer shared. “And they deserve to own their future. This is what Centerfold is all about. For all those creators out there doing bold, revolutionary, truly culture-shifting things, come join me.”

Later, Cardi B told fans not to expect to see her in the pages of the gentlemen magazine anytime soon or at all, after she revealed plans for “some sexy shit on the cover of Playboy,” the outlet noted.

The superstar previously made headlines when she said she likes “justice” but also likes “popping” her “pussy” after being named Billboard’s 2020 Woman of the Year.
