AceShowbiz - There's apparently no bad blood between Nicki Minaj and Cardi B though they have been trading harsh words about each other recently. The two rappers looked friendly when they ran into one another at the 2018 Met Gala which took place on Monday, May 7.
The "Anaconda" hitmaker and the "Bodak Yellow (Money Moves)" raptress were pictured hanging out together inside the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City where the event was held. It wasn't a kind of intense or awkward situation as they were seen smiling while having a little conversation.
Moschino designer Jeremy Scott, who designed Cardi's jewel-covered, bead-encrusted dress and headpiece, was seen standing near the pair while the pair caught up at the star-studded gala. He wore a matching white outfit to Cardi's which was designed to fit in with the event's theme "Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination".
Nicki, meanwhile, donned a red Oscar de la Renta gown and Tiffany & Co. jewelry. She went for a "temptress" look despite the theme, explaining to E! News on the red carpet, "You know what, because I'm the bad guy, and I wanted to make sure that the bad guy was here." She then announced her new album's release date, "Album dropping June 15. It's called 'Queen'."
Nicki and Cardi's feud started after they were featured on Migos' track "Motorsport", Cardi said in an interview that Nicki's verse on the song was not the actual part that the Harajuku Barbie recorded. "When I [first] heard the track, her verse wasn't finished," Cardi said. "It was not the verse that's on it right now."
A few months later, Nicki's alleged original verse was leaked, revealing that she called out Cardi in the lyric. "If Cardi the QB, I'm Nick Lombardi," she spat the lyric, referring to the legendary Green Bay Packers coach.
Nicki then responded to Cardi's interview. "The only thing that Cardi really, really, really hurt my feelings was the first interview she did after 'Motorsport'," Nicki said. "I remember when I first came in the game, if a female of that stature had done a feature with me on it, I would only be singing their praises and saying, 'Thank you.' The first interview she did after 'Motorsport' came out, it really hurt me. She looked so aggravated and angry. And the only thing she kept saying was, 'Oh, I didn't hear that, I didn't hear her verse.' I was like...'What?' "
Nicki also took to Twitter to address the change to the "Motorsport" lyric. "How can you say someone changed their verse & forgot to say Quavo TOLD me to remove my singing part (which I loved) & Atlantic told me to remove your name from my verse per your request?" she wrote, claiming that the change was not her idea. "So how were those changes gonna happen if I didn't 'change' my verse?"
Earlier this month, Cardi seemed to reignite the feud when she responded to an Instagram user who commented on one of her Instagram posts, "You wanna comment to everything but what you need to. Answer why you got such a pressure with nicki when she was so nice to you h*e." Cardi's response was, "Nice how? Tell me?"
