There are still so many questions surrounding the physical altercation between rappers Cardi B and Nicki Minaj at the Harper’s Bazaar ICONS party during New York Fashion Week on September 7.
Rumors have been swirling, with Cardi B accusing Minaj of multiple things, including that Minaj insulted her parenting skills and threatened other artists with a blacklisting should they elect to work with Cardi. For her part, Minaj has denied these allegations in their entirety.
In a new interview with W Magazine, Cardi B reveals the specific reason that she confronted Minaj so publicly and, at one point, threw a shoe at her. Apparently Minaj liked — and then un-liked — a tweet dissing Cardi B as a parent.
“I was going to make millions off my Bruno Mars tour, and I sacrificed that to stay with my daughter,” Cardi B said. “I love my daughter. I’m a good-ass f*****g 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.”
