Cardi B and Nicki Minaj meeting face-to-face at the Met Gala Monday sent the internet into a total frenzy: What did the supposed enemies talk about?!
Lucky for us, Howard Stern asked the question we all want the answer to when Cardi stopped by his SiriusXM radio show Wednesday morning.
“Are you feuding with anybody? ‘Cause that always seems to happen somehow in pop music,” Stern said. “People were saying, ‘Cardi B’s feuding with Nicki Minaj.’ Is any of that true?”
“I never was feuding with anybody; there was a misunderstanding,” Cardi replied. “I think she felt a certain type of way about something. I definitely felt a certain type of way about something. I didn’t wanna ever talk about it in public because I felt like we gonna see each other again and we will talk about it, and it’s always like little issues. The thing is, it’s always little issues, but you know, fans are always gonna make it a big thing.”
“I spoke to her about it,” Cardi added. “I spoke to her at the Met Gala about it, and it’s just like, see? It’s just something that had to be talked about because it was an issue.”
Stern asked Cardi point-blank what the issue was, but Cardi was not willing to divulge the dirt.
“I’m not gonna talk about it, but I really feel a certain type of way,” she said. “My feelings was really hurt, and I was just on some, ‘You know what? This is why I just keep to myself. This is why I cannot f-ck with nobody.'”
When Stern asked Cardi if she thought her “issue” with Nicki had been “blown up by the press,” Cardi said yes.
“The media, they just so thirsty to put women in hip-hop — not just women in hip-hop, color women — against each other,” she said. “I don’t understand why they do that and why they want to do that. Like, I’ve seen so many Hispanic artists — females — work with each other, and it benefits them so well.”
But Cardi said the press and the music industry are not the only parties to blame. “It’s the fans and it’s the people,” she said. “Because the people get entertained by other people’s problems and conflict.”
