On Friday night, Cardi B let her hands and fists do most of her talkng, as the artist allegedly approached Nicki Minaj at a party in New York City and hurled a shoe in her rival’s direction.
Now, a couple days after the dust has settled on this very public confrontation, Minaj has gone ahead and done some actual talking of her own.
With her mouth, we mean.
“The other night I was part of something so mortifying and so humiliating to go through in front of a bunch upper echelon… people who have their life together,” Minaj said during Monday’s installment of her Queen radio show on Apple Music’s Beats 1.
The fracas took place at a gathering sponsored by Harper’s Bazaar.
Insiders said shortly afterword that Cardi approached Minaj to talk about the latter spreading a bunch of “lies” about the former — and that the aforementioned high heel was thrown as Cardi was being pulled away by security.
“I was in a Gaultier gown – off the motherf-cing runway – and I could not believe how humiliated it all felt,” Nicki continued in response today.
What about the remarks Minaj supposedly uttered about Cardi’s baby’s daughter, Kulture, to which Cardi alluded in a recent Instagram statement?
“I would never discuss anyone’s child and it’s so sad for someone to pin that one me because I’m the bad guy and they know people would believe them,” Minaj continued on her broadcast today.
“Let me go on the record and say I would never talk about anyone’s child or parenting. It’s so crazy to me that people always need to make Onika the bad guy. If you’re right in whatever you’re doing, you don’t never have to make someone the bad guy.”
To reiterate, using her full name, Nicki emphasized:
“I just want people to know that Onika Tanya Maraj has never, will never… speak ill on anyone’s child. I am not a clown. That’s clown sh-t.
Almost immediately after her argument with Nicki went viral, Cardi wrote the following online:
“You’ve threatened other artists in the industry, told them if they work with me you’ll stop f-ckin with them!! I’ve worked hard and come too far to let anybody f-ck with my success!!!! Bitches talk about all that sh-t in they raps but in real life are pussy.”
Minaj, meanwhile, simply mocked Cardi B for feeling a need to justify herself in this sort of manner, saying on her show this afternoon:
“You knew that when that footage came out, you was about to look f-cking dumb … they hurried up and put out a statement. I’m such an ill ass bitch, I didn’t even feel the need to defend myself that night.”
Upon leaving the party Saturday morning, Minaj smiled for the crowd and blew kisses.
She didn’t seem at all bothered by what had transpired.
“The lord gave you a blessing of a beautiful bundle of joy and the only thing on your mind once you gave birth was to attack people and stop their bags?” Minaj went on in this case, addressing Cardi again and adding:
“Get this woman some f-cking help. This woman is at the best stage of her career, and she’s out here throwing bottles and throwing shoes? Get this woman an intervention!”
But Minaj concluded in a far more serious and menacing tone.
This is how she wrapped up the segment:
You put your hands on certain people you gon die. PERIOD. And y’all sitting here making this sh-t a joke?
I’m not the bitches in the strip club and I’m not a bitch on a reality show. My money is very f-cking long.
