Cardi B Opens About Her Met Gala Conversation With Nicki Minaj

Billboard.com released the following article about Nicki and Cardi B at the Met Gala:

On Monday night, the hip-hop universe exploded when a photo of Nicki Minaj and Cardi B engaging peacefully in a conversation at the Met Gala surfaced. In one photo, the two can be seen speaking to each other in conversation, while the the second flick captures them both in a goofy selfie.

In a new interview with Howard Stern’s Sirius XM radio show Wednesday morning (May 9), Cardi explained what took place Monday night when she and Nicki linked up.

“I never was feuding with anybody; there was a misunderstanding,” Cardi said when asked if she and Minaj were beefing. “I think she felt a certain type of way about something. I definitely felt a certain type of way about something,” she lamented. “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.” Then, she pointed out how important it was for them both to meet in person and iron out the wrinkles in their relationship.

“I spoke to her about it,” she 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.” When Stern grilled her about what the problem was, Cardi refused to spill any details regarding their rift. “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 fuck with nobody.'”

Finally, Cardi took aim at the media, who relished in her back-and-forth ordeal with Minaj. “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.”

J. Reid: One of my partners—Brinx Billions—was working with Nicki. He did a record with her and it was so crazy that she was like, “Who did the beat?” He told her that I did it and she was like, “We might need to fly him out here.” My first trip to meet her was Miami. I went out there so excited. She was just like, “I love your music. You’re talented, I’m just trying to put some stuff together.” So I was like, “I’m ready.” From that, it’s just been ballgame. Coming back and forth, going in and out of town, working at home and showing out.

When did that meeting happen in Miami?
It was probably late December. Everything came to fruition around that time. She was looking to start her project—she probably had already started it. But the certain sound she wanted, I was able to cater.
