Rappers are definitely the real rock stars of our era.

They work hard, play hard, party hard, trash the occasional hotel room and get into fights. They live and love and make music worth shaking one’s ass to. (Don’t deny the power of “Bickenhead.”)

Cardi B and the one-third of Migos known as Offset have their full rock-star allure going on in their leaked July Rolling Stone cover. In it, Cardi is doing her best Demi Moore (or Britney Spears or Mariah Carey or Serena Williams—that naked-while-pregnant side pose is a popular one among the celebrity crowd), while Offset kisses her very-much-ready-to-give-birth-at-any-moment belly.

She’s such a muva. 

This proud soon-to-be mom boasted in her tweet about the cover, “My daughter made it to the Rollin [sic] Stone cover.”

That’ll be one for the baby’s first scrapbook.

As for the cover, it’s cute in a glam-rock sort of way—from Offset’s Jimi Hendrix-meets-Lenny Kravitz velvet suit, to Cardi’s elaborate peacock tattoo. Don’t quite get why she’s rocking a Barbra Streisand wig while wearing a Supreme Court-justice robe, but I’ll take it because I kind of love it.

Just like Cardi.
