MTV is casting for a ‘True Life’ series about people who want to be Cardi B

Cardi B is certainly an icon and something of a treasure in our country at the moment.

Almost everyone loves her. And if they don’t, they probably will fall in love with her somewhere down the line.

She went from stripper to reality star to number one on the Billboard Hot 100. Cardi’s rise has reminded us that it’s possible to be whoever you want, as long as you put your heart to it. She is a role model for being your true self and sticking to it no matter what.

In fact, Cardi is so looked up to that MTV has decided to step up the icon’s television presence.

The new series Dying to be Cardi B! is looking for a cast of people ages 18-25 who want to, more than anything, be Cardi B.

The only requirement, it seems, is that you need to eat, live, and breathe Cardi.

“If Cardi B is your hero, your role model, your icon, your inspiration and the one person that is giving you hope in life…then I WANT YOU! You must have a great story to tell.”

The product description on Backstage is pretty hilarious as well as creepy:

“If you are dying to live your best Bardi life, then we want you. We want your story. We want real people. We want to know how Cardi B has changed your life. We want die-hard Cardi B fans.”

I love Cardi B just as much as the next person, and I think it’s great that she’s reached such high levels of success that MTV is basing an entire series around her, but isn’t the point of Cardi’s success to remind you that you should always maintain your individuality?

But I’m not gonna sit here and front like I ain’t gonna peep this shit when it comes out. Reality TV is a shameless, and amazing, form of entertainment.

TBH I’m pretty excited for this, and for Cardi.
