(CNN)Cardi B is over her haters and wants to embrace those who truly support her.

"I have a lot of people that claim they don't like me," Cardi B told CNN on Wednesday.

Instead, she'll be offering content like a behind-the-scenes look at the making of the video for her single "WAP," her new, but already hit collaboration with fellow rapper Megan Thee Stallion.

Cardi B said she didn't expect women rapping about sex in the same way they talk about it amongst themselves to be so controversial.

"I think the song is nasty, but I was thinking [about all the controversy], wow, like, I don't know," she said.

The 27-year-old said she came up listening to women rappers like Lil Kim, Trina and Jacki-O, who were known for their bawdy and sexual lyrics.

Hours before Cardi B spoke with CNN, CeeLo Green issued an apology to her and other female rappers he had talked about during a recent interview with Far Out Magazine.

"Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion, they are all more or less doing similar salacious gesturing to kinda get into position.

In reference to Green's apology, Cardi B told CNN, "It's ok, it's all good.

I just want to keep positive energies and stuff like that. "

She said she wants to prove she's not a flash in the pan.

"I have to prove that, like this wasn't a gimmick, this wasn't like a one time thing," Cardi B said.
