Cardi B will use its OnlyFans page to share exclusive material with fans.
Cardi B has opened an account on OnlyFans, a social network that allows creators — large sex workers — to share exclusive content with fans and clients in return for a one-off or monthly payment. Although OnlyFans is usually used by models and influencers to post “too racy for Instagram” material, as the recent Times profile put it, the spokesperson for Only Fans says that Cardi would use the platform to “release information behind the scenes, address ongoing rumors, share insights into her personal life, and connect more closely with her fans,” among other things. Here, you can subscribe to Cardi B’s OnlyFans for USD $4.99.
OnlyFans have seen an increase in popularity since the start of the Covid-19 pandemic, a trend that has been controversial among sex workers using the website. In the Rolling Stone article earlier this year, a number of sex workers reported that OnlyFans had removed them from the site for no reason; in the same study, the powerful woman called Ms. Hell expressed dismay that the market was flooded, stating, “The biggest content creators there are no longer sex workers but celebrities / YouTubers […] That’s really troubling. More people in the vanilla lifestyle think it’s easy to make money there, and it might have an effect [on our ability to make a living]”.
Cardi released “WAP” last week, her first song as a leading artist in nine months. A collaboration with Megan Thee Stallion, the single quickly gained popularity and publicity for its graphic lyrics and immediately iconic video, a breakthrough the surreal mansion that featured cameos from Normani, Rosalía, Mulatto, Kylie Jenner and more.
