Since this week’s Met Gala in New York City, there’s been a barrage of photos that have hit the Internet. But there’s one photo that has everyone talking, a picture of Nicki Minaj and Cardi B having a conversation.
Normally, such a photo wouldn’t cause a big fuss, but since there have been rumors of a beef, many fans wondered about the topic of discussion.
On Wednesday (May 9), Cardi stopped by Howard Stern’s SiriusXM radio show and talked about the photo and just like some predicted, the rappers cleared up a problem they had. But Cardi said she never had a real beef, just a small issue with Nicki.
“I never was feuding with anybody. There was a misunderstanding,” she explained. “I think she felt a certain type of way about something. I definitely felt a certain type of way about something. Didn’t want to ever talk about it in public because I felt like we are going to see each other again and we will talk about it. It’s always like little issues.”
“But the thing is, it’s always little issues, but fans are always going to make it into a big thing,” added Cardi. “I spoke to her in the Met Gala about it and it’s just like, ‘See, it’s just something that needed to be talked about.’”
In April, Nicki spoke with Zane Lowe on his Beats 1 Radio show and said she was hurt that Cardi didn’t come to her defense when people accused her of changing her verse on their song “Motorsport.”
Some believed that after the Young Money rapper heard Cardi’s lines on the cut, she went back and switched some wording to have the better verse. There were also rumors floating around that Nicki refused to shoot the video for the song.
Cardi, however, said it was more to it than that but refused to give details.
“The issue was something that the press didn’t know, because I don’t like talking,” she said. “I’m not going to talk about it, but I really felt a certain type of way. My feelings were really hurt, and I was on some, ‘This is why I keep to myself. That’s why I can’t f–k with nobody.’”
Cardi then said that people — the media included — love when two women of color go at each other, and she’s sick and tired of it.
“I just felt like the media, they just so thirsty to also put colored women against each other,” she stated. “Not even [just] hip-hop. I see people put R&B women against each other, and I don’t understand why they do that, and why they want to do that.”
Nicki has yet to comment on the Met Gala photo or Cardi’s new interview.
