Cardi B Covers W / Explains Nicki Minaj Beef

Published: Tuesday 9th Oct 2018 by Sam

Cop a gander of Cardi B on the cover of W Magazine!

In a mere year, the femcee has gone from ‘Love & Hip-Hop’ staple to Rap royal – earning a mind-blowing three #1 singles in the process.

Fittingly, then, she styles and profiles in a shoot the oozes the glamor old Hollywood.

The attached interview features proves equally compelling.

Ever candid, the Bronx native didn’t shy away when quizzed about her less than regal run-in with Nicki Minaj at Harper’s Bazaar’s Icons bash last month. A party at she infamously threw a red shoe at her foe.

Weeks removed from the fracas, what’s her outlook on the matter? Find out below…

On Nicki Drama:

“For a while now she’s been taking a lot of shots at me. I spoke to her twice before, and we came to an understanding. But she kept it going.”

Her breaking point came when she saw that Minaj had liked, and then unliked, a tweet disparaging Cardi’s mothering skills, something Minaj has denied.

“I was going to make millions off my Bruno Mars tour, and I sacrificed that to stay with my daughter. I love my daughter. I’m a good-ass fucking mom. So for somebody that don’t have a child to like that comment? So many people want to say that party wasn’t the time or the place, but I’m not going to catch another artist in the grocery store or down the block.”

And that’s that!

The 25-year-old also opened up about her initial fears after finding out she was pregnant with daughter Kulture:

“When I got pregnant, I was fucking freaking out. Everybody around me was like, ‘No, this never happened before. Every artist that had a baby, they already put in years in the game. This is your first year. You’re going to mess it up. How are you going to make it?’ 

While I was pregnant, I kept telling myself, I can’t wait till I’m back out there. I’m going to look hot, and I’m going to be that bitch.”

Incredible shoot!

  3. Jasmine Da Bi Asian NOT Trashmine or TROLLmine??‍♀️??‍♀️B October 9, 2018

    I love that she can rock short cuts and covered up, mature looks. She doesn’t ALWAYS have to look like a thot/s***/leggings/skin baring even though at 25 she’s age appropriate to do so. That matched with her real personality makes me like her even though I don’t really know her music, she was really good at global citizens festival. You go girl #BitchComeHere

    • KillMonger Was Right (Tyler) October 9, 2018

      That’s one of the thing’s I like about her crazy ass lol. Despite the fact that she’s an ex stripper, her outfits aren’t too over sexualized?

  4. KillMonger Was Right (Tyler) October 9, 2018

    Well Nicki’s album is currently out of the Hot 100 right now while Cardi’s is in the top 50.

    • ??? October 9, 2018

      • KillMonger Was Right (Tyler) October 9, 2018

      • Me again October 9, 2018

      • DanYiel Iman October 9, 2018

        @me again: if you kindly pull up this weeks billboard hot 100 chart and check the number 1 spot for the 3rd week in a row you’ll see….. ??????‍♀️??‍♀️??‍♀️??‍♀️ Don’t be so upset miss thing

  5. SMH October 9, 2018

    Still a dumb ghetto hoodrat, and this interview proves it. Nice clothes & tons of makeup won’t change that.

    • Jasmine Da Bi Asian NOT Trashmine or TROLLmine??‍♀️??‍♀️B October 9, 2018

      Most of the rappers who come in the game are young, ghetto and from the hood. I mean they just don’t dominate the game as quickly as she did. That’s how you can tell you’re not a fan of rap or the culture. Jay z stabbed someone, diddy/biggie used to fight all the time, Kim and Foxy drew guns, 50 Cent is well 50 Cent, Eminem fought, drake fights(though I. Don’t count him much), remy shot someone and the list goes on and on and on. Ur acting like cardi is standing out here by herself being the pioneer of being hood and a rapper. No mami you’re just a pop fan commenting on a subject you just don’t know about, this is hip hop hop- not the monsters ball. Stick to what you know best, 2009 Armadillo heels and lace facial cover ups ?

      • Wonder Woman October 9, 2018

        Damn you read her for filth!!!

      • Jasmine Da Bi Asian NOT Trashmine or TROLLmine??‍♀️??‍♀️B October 9, 2018

        @wonder woman This bïtch is tryna read cardi being a hoodrat as she’s bumping “a star is born” soundtrack, as she sits drinking her Starbucks, scrolling through Perez before she takes her hot yoga sesh with Felicity and Becky.

  6. TRUTH SERUM October 9, 2018

    Ok photo shoot . But that interview…. whew chile, her dumb a$$ just doesn’t get it.

  7. Kosher October 9, 2018

    The photos look nice! The cover photo though is a bit too much makeup in my opinion.

    I think her answer to the Nicki situation was honest and clear. I still don’t think it was necessary at an industry event, but it’s true in regard to where else besides industry stuff would she really see Nicki.

    They need to squash the beef and make an EP feat. all female hip-hop artist. Both older and newer/ and from both sides of the pond. Probably will never happen but we can hope lol

  8. Carlos October 9, 2018

    Cardi will do great and she shouldn’t worry about nicki because karma will catch up to nicki. Cardi if she keeps focusing on her music and fashion she will continue to thrive,she has so much potential to grow as an artist that the world likes. It’s only the Garbz who mad.

    • I HATE WHYYTE N BLACCK BITCHEZZZZ both not ish October 9, 2018

      W.hore. Nicki look waaaaaaaayy better than her

  9. IG @mixedboy October 9, 2018

    She looks absolutely stunning! ?

  10. King of King’s October 9, 2018

    ?was her name said in any of these so called “shots” at her or did her fans & ppl around her plant seeds in her head believing her to think so ? & so where the screenshot of this alleged tweet/comment she liked? Clearly somebody, probably her sister or one of her fans showed it to her. & how she know it wasn’t photoshopped, the same way she says Barbs was photoshopping her liking the Meek tweet the other week? She didn’t bother to ask she just came there looking to cause a scene & fight. Funny how there was no mention of that b******* lie of “bag stopping” in her interview lol.

    • Jasmine Da Bi Asian NOT Trashmine or TROLLmine??‍♀️??‍♀️B October 9, 2018

      She said what she said and at the end of the day nicki did what she does best: talk shït even though she doesn’t have any type of hands to back it up #JustCallSecurity #BitchComeHere

      • King of King’s October 9, 2018

        & what she said was MF BULLSHITT & she looks like a damn drag queen in this photo shoot smh. If that’s the case then wasn’t Cardi talking s*** about Nicki on all her singles & album? See how easy is is for fans to instigate s*** & make it seem like it’s directed @ somebody when it actually we really don’t kno smh. She did what she was suppose to do stand there & look pretty while somebody literally showed their ass & looked a damn fool with a big ass knot. Her own hoodrat actions make her look like a bad mom with her insecure ass

    • Jasmine Da Bi Asian NOT Trashmine or TROLLmine??‍♀️??‍♀️B October 9, 2018

      Sorry I don’t have time to read that essay about ol girl with no hands, I’ll just assume it’s a rant filled different ways of saying “I looked at billboard hot 100 and 200 today and I’m panini pressed and mad! Where is my 40 year old fav?!?!??????”

      • King of King’s October 9, 2018

        U have time to comment hateful negative s*** on every post on here so clearly u had time to read the shitt, &. nah I looked @ who’s the best selling female of all time tho ?

  11. The Empress October 9, 2018

    I looooooooooove Cardi, but her facial expressions and makeup…that is all.

  12. Tanya October 9, 2018

    She looks uncomfortable and awkward in every photo. As for the Nicki beef and what she’s saying is true, why didn’t she run up at the VMAs then?

    • Tanya October 9, 2018


    • Xanadu October 9, 2018

      @TANYA: She didn’t run up at the VMA’s cuz your COWARDLY QUEEN ran out after accepting her award..she was so shook that she even pre-taped her performance at another venue the night b4 and invited her barbs for crowd yelling effect…At this point, she is the Queen of NOTHING!!… And do pay attention to how she hasn’t used her favorite line about having to sell records in order to be the Queen of that case the bish is DETHRONED!!!!.. CUZ CARDI IS WASHIN HER ON THE CHARTS WITH EVERY DAMN SINGLE SHE HAS RELEASED OFF THIS QUEEN ALBUM!!!

  13. Selah October 9, 2018

    Say what you want about Cardi, but she always looks GREAT! She rocks couture very well. Nicki always looks cheap, like she purchased her outfits from Rainbow or Citi Trends. Cardi may have been a stripper, but Nicki always looks like one. Oops.

    • S.U.P.E.R.S.T.A.R.!. October 9, 2018

      @Selah – The lies you tell.

      • Jasmine Da Bi Asian NOT Trashmine or TROLLmine??‍♀️??‍♀️B October 9, 2018

        @superstar naw they’re actually dead on. 98% of the time nicki is dressed like a thot. Cardi dresses thotty too but she’s 12 years younger and also wears suits, baggy stuff and things women 20 years older than her would wear, and nicki cannot pull off

    • King of King’s October 9, 2018

      ?lmao but yet Cardi stay in some damn fashion nova which is the new rainbow/citi trends basically all they got is thot clothes.

      • Jasmine Da Bi Asian NOT Trashmine or TROLLmine??‍♀️??‍♀️B October 9, 2018

        Didn’t someone their couture garments at K-Mart before it flopped and was canceled? Oh ok.

  14. Check October 9, 2018

    They did a good job photoshopping out the hurpesss in her over inflated lips.

    • Crowned Royalty October 9, 2018

      Please learn how to spell H***** before you try to come for someone.

  15. Love is Love October 9, 2018

    So you acted a fool because someone liked and unliked something? Girl, you was better of not saying why you did some ratchet sh*t like that

  16. BeyQueen October 9, 2018

    They ain’t fooling no one, where her herpess simplex scares go?

  17. FAF October 9, 2018

    • Jasmine Da Bi Asian NOT Trashmine or TROLLmine??‍♀️??‍♀️B October 9, 2018

      I guess u saw who’s number one on the charts this week and are upset ???‍♀️??‍♀️

  18. Beam Me Up Scotty October 9, 2018

    Now let me get this straight, she attacked someone because they liked and disliked a comment about her parenting? That’s no reason to attack someone! And why do some of you insist that she has potential and that she’s talented. W T F? Girl can’t speak or write English to save her life. She has no flow whatsoever. Are we really comparing her to the greats? Have stooped that low? The world is ending I tell you.
