Cardi B Defends Her Decision To Politely (lol) Approach Nicki Minaj At The NYFW Party

Cardi B explains why she tried to attack Nicki Minaj.

UPDATE // OCTOBER 9: 

Cardi is W Magazine’s new cover girl.

Naturally, the rapper used the opportunity to elaborate on her ongoing feud with Nicki Minaj. So ongoing that there’s a plethora of updates below this one detailing their every recent move. It’s exhausting to keep writing about this to be honest, but y’all are here aren’t you?

“For a while now she’s been taking a lot of shots at me,” she said of Nicki.

“I spoke to her twice before, and we came to an understanding. But she kept it going.”

According to W, Cardi snapped when she discovered Nicki liked, then unliked, a Tweet blasting Cardi’s mothering skills. Minaj has adamantly denied ever doing such a thing.

“I was going to make millions off my Bruno Mars tour, and I sacrificed that to stay with my daughter,” Cardi continued.

“I love my daughter. I’m a good-ass f—ing mom. So for somebody that don’t have a child to like that comment? So many people want to say that party wasn’t the time or the place, but I’m not going to catch another artist in the grocery store or down the block.”

Nicki’s response in another magazine coming in 3…2…

UPDATE // SEPTEMBER 10: 

Money Moves: Nicki Minaj Is Now Selling Merch That Shades Cardi B

The feud between Nicki and Cardi B is still very much on. 

Nicki just announced her latest merch – a pink backup with the words “Nicki stopped my bag” emblazoned on the front.

Last month, Cardi lashed out at Nicki on Instagram and accused her of halting Cardi’s money moves.

“I let you sneak diss me, I let you lie on me,” she said. “I let you attempt to stop my bags, f-k up the way I eat.”

Today, the rapper dropped a whole bunch of new merch capitalizing on the beef. It’s super embarassing and tacky, but I’m living.

UPDATE // SEPTEMBER 12: 

Cardi B refutes claims made by Nicki Minaj that payola (pay for play) is how she rose to superstardom.

Cardi B is biting back.

She posted a couple of FIERY MESSAGES IN ALL CAPS clapping back at Nicki (read more below), who put the “Bodak Yellow” rapper on blast on Queen radio following their very public fight at NYFW.

“NUMBERS DONT F—IN LIE,” Cardi wrote on Instagram with a Top 10 list Of 2018’s best selling hip-hop albums.

She also posted a video from one of her earlier gigs to prove the point.

“7/29/2016! NO LABEL ,NO RADIO PLAY,FRESH OUT OF LOVE AND HIP HOP,ONLY 200K IN MY BANK ACCOUNT ,MY FIRST TOUR !!!,” Cardi wrote.

“Nobody can make you feel like you cheated yourself or you don’t deserve to be where you at when you KNOW YOU WORKED YOURSELF TO THE TOP !!! THANK YOU BARDIGANG !YOU BEEN HERE SINCE THE GET GO!”

¯\_(ツ)_/¯

UPDATE // SEPTEMBER 10: 

Gloves Off: Nicki Minaj Says Cardi B Made A Career Off Of Payola And Sympathy

Following their very publicized fight at the Harper’s Bazaar event at NYFW, Nicki Minaj went on Queen Radio to clarify a few things – and of course blasted her rival. 

Following the, erm, incident… Cardi wrote a note to fans on social media claiming Nicki took shots at Cardi’s baby, Kulture (see below). Nicki refutes that.

“The other night I had to go through something so mortifying,” Nicki said – referring to the altercation. “I could not believe how humiliated [sic] it all felt.”

“I would never talk about anyone’s child or anyone’s parenting,” she continued. “And it’s so crazy to me that people always need to make Onika the bad guy…I am not a clown. That’s clown shit.”

“You knew that when that footage came out you would look dumb,” Nicki added, claiming Cardi’s publicist filmed the whole ordeal. “I didn’t even feel the need to defend myself that night. …She has built her career off of sympathy and payola.”

It gets messier. Nicki brought a woman on the air who claims Cardi called her dead child a monkey on Instagram, and says Cardi used the term “roaches” to describe darker skinned black women. No one wins here.

Le sigh. Also, I’m just going to leave this here…:

 

 

EARLIER // SEPTEMBER 7:

The two ladies got into a physical fight at Harper’s Bazaar event during New York Fashion Week, according to video posted onto Twitter. 

According to TMZ, Cardi “aggressively approached the table” Nicki was at. They report Cardi said “Let me tell you something”  as she lunged toward Nicki, but security stopped her.

They said Nicki “didn’t even flinch.”

The video below appears to be Cardi getting into a fight, but sources tell The Shade Room Nicki’s friend stepped in.

UPDATE: Cardi wrote a seething message aimed at Nicki.
