In a candid chat with Mariah Carey inside the magazine, the 28-year-old ‘’WAP’’ rapper discussed the beauty and body insecurities she faced growing up in the Bronx.
‘’I’m Trini and I’m Dominican, and there’s a lot of Dominicans that look a certain type of way. They have soft, pretty, curly hair. Growing up, guys would ask me weird questions like, ‘If you’re Dominican, why is your hair so nappy?’ I used to dye my hair, and people used to be like, ‘Oh, your hair’s so crunchy.’ And it would make me feel so weird,” she explained. ‘’I was also really skinny when I was younger, and in the Bronx, it’s about being thick and having an ass, so young boys would be like, ‘Look at your flat a**. You ain’t got no titties.’ And it would make me feel so ugly and undeveloped’’.
