Last night, we were all going about our lives, most likely already halfway to blacking out, when a certain icon named Cardi B decided to have absolutely no chill at New York Fashion Week. In a level of A-list celebrity drama that we haven’t truly seen since the infamous Solange/Jay-Z elevator fight, Cardi B literally tried to fight Nicki Minaj. Like, actually physically fight her. It’s been 12 hours since I heard the news, and I am still fully shook.
On Friday night, the top two women in the rap game (sorry Iggy Azalea lmao) were both at the Harper’s Bazaar ICONS party, which is a big New York Fashion Week event. Apparently, things got physical on a second floor balcony while Christina Aguilera was performing. I’m sorry, but where is the respect for Xtina? I love “Genie In A Bottle” way too much to accept this kind of disrespect. But alas, we’re not here to talk about Christina. Things sound pretty crazy, and a source who was at the event said “it was entourage against entourage. I feel like I’ve been waiting for this moment my entire life.
Forget Floyd Mayweather, this is the fight of the century. While Nicki got to stay at the party, Cardi B was escorted out by security, giving us some glorious paparazzi images. She has a lump on her forehead, her makeup is a mess, her dress is ripped, and SHE’S NOT WEARING SHOES. God bless Cardi B; she really is that b*tch. And, as you could probably guess, the memes have been excellent.
We don’t have all the details about when went down between the two leading up to the fight, but Cardi B is looking out for us. Just minutes after the incident at the Bazaar party went down, Cardi B took to Instagram, where she basically posted a manifesto about what a piece of sh*t Nicki Minaj is. Here it is in its full glory,
Wow. I knew the two of them had beef in the past, but this seems extreme. Does Nicki Minaj really think it’s okay to talk publicly about Cardi B’s baby? Nicki has always had trouble getting along with other female rappers (and people in general) in the past, but I was really hoping that she and Cardi would be able to come to some kind of mutual understanding. There’s obviously room for both of them in the rap game, so why not just coexist peacefully?
So far, Nicki has remained remarkably silent on the fight with Cardi. Actually, in a move that I sort of love, she’s posted like seven photos of herself from the event on Instagram, basically just being like “look how f*cking good I look.” Nicki also doesn’t even have a Twitter account right now, so there’s little hope that she’ll pop off with some of her signature shady tweets.
So where do we go from here? Will Nicki and Cardi ever get along? Will Cardi burn down Nicki’s house and end up in jail? Only time will tell, and right now the future is very uncertain. We’ll circle back in a few days, when there’s (hopefully) more information, and when I’m not running late for a bottomless brunch.
