Cardi B is reportedly thinking of turning to acting once she’s had her baby. According to a report by Metro, the 'Bodak Yellow' rapper has signed a deal with Creative Artists Agency to help her land "career-defining and challenging roles" so that she can step back from her music career in order to spend more time with her child.

A source told Metro: "A big part of the reason she’s pursuing this now is because she believes it’ll be easier for her to be a full-time mom if she focuses on acting."

"Making music requires her to be on the road and she doesn’t want to be away from her daughter for too long. The plan is for her to divide her time between LA and New York and work from there."

The rapper, who released her highly acclaimed debut album 'Invasion of Privacy' earlier this April, confirmed her pregnancy during a performance on ‘Saturday Night Live’ in the same month. The father is her fiancé, Offset, who is one-third of the Grammy-nominated hip-hop/trap trio Migos. The couple recently made it to the cover of Rolling Stone magazine, striking a risque pose that raised quite a few eyebrows.

In related news, Cardi recently discussed President Donald Trump, questioning why he hasn’t yet been impeached, during an exclusive interview with Rolling Stone. "He has made divisions in this country – he almost made a crazy civil war between the blacks and the whites,” she said during the interview. “He has proven himself to be a madman so many times and proven himself to be disrespectful to women, and that still hasn’t gotten him impeached.”

The stripper turned rap sensation is one of the many artists who has taken a strong stance against Donald Trump, specifically because of his immigration policies which till recently required the separation of children from their parents on the US-Mexico border. Earlier this week, Nine Inch Nails frontman Trent Reznor called out artists like Taylor Swift for not speaking out against Trump.

“You don’t hear a lot from the Taylor Swifts of the world, and top-tier, needle-moving cultural youth because they are concerned about their brand, their demographic and their success and career and whatnot,” he said in an interview.
