I’ll be honest, I was super late to the Nicki Minaj and Cardi B drama. I briefly saw a slew of Insta stories with live footage of Cardi exiting stage left with a giant goose-egg above her eyebrow and scrolled through some viral play-by-plays. It’s all fun and games until someone gets hurt, I told myself. Things got scrappy, Nicki posted a knockout post-fight selfie, and I thought it would end there.
Surprise! Shit’s still poppin’. While Nicki’s taken to her radio channel to voice her feelings about the altercation, meme-queen Cardi has been v busy laughing at her own jokes. Not one to turn down a passive-agressive pot-stirring opportunity, miz B is proving that while she may have lost the battle, she is still the reigning champ of extreme pettiness.
‘The Bodak Yellow’ singer has since one-upped her Insta shade by showing up at Milan Fashion Week decked in head-to-toe animal prints – a not so subtle nod to Nicki’s post-brawl Alexander Vauthier look. Without any confirmation from camp Cardi, we may never know if this was indeed meant to keep the media momentum going. But from my expertise in all things Bravo-style drama related, I would 100% say it was.
