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.”

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.”
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…:
