The internet is witnessing the drama between Madonna and Cardi B ensue. Everything started when Madonna celebrated her book’s 30th anniversary on Instagram. There are emojis and disappointment involved with fans trying to decrypt the possible meanings of Madonna’s story.
The queen of pop was celebrating the 30th year since she published her book “S.E.X.” and recalled how controversial it was in the ’90s.
She wrote, “30 years ago, I published a book called “S.E.X.” in addition to photos of me naked, there were photos of men kissing men, woman kissing woman, and me kissing everyone. I also wrote about my sexual fantasies and shared my point of view about sexuality in an ironic way.”
“I spent the next few years being interviewed by narrow-minded people who tried to shame me for empowering myself as a woman.”
“Now Cardi B can sing about her WAP, Kim Kardashian can grace the cover of any magazine with her naked **s, and Miley Cyrus can come in like a wrecking ball.”
She finished it with, “You’re welcome bitches…🤡”
Cardi B did not take that last remark too kindly, especially as a fan of hers who’ve paid a lot of homage to the “Frozen” hitmaker. She’s gone to Twitter to express her disappointment at the singer’s story.
In a now-deleted tweet, she wrote, “I literally paid this woman homage so many times cause I grew up listening to her… She can make her point without putting clown emojis and getting slick out the mouth…”
She continued, “These icons really become disappointments once u make it in the industry that’s why I keep to myself.”
The “WAP” hitmaker included a screenshot of her Instagram post shared by Billboard back in 2018, where she gushed over meeting her idol, Madonna, for the first time. She wrote, “I grew up with my mom listening to Madonna for hours. I performed ‘Material Girl’ freshman year in High school, listen to her on all my photo shoots to have super confidence, and always mentioned her in my interviews.”
“The best part about it is she was everything I thought she would be a Liberal Kick **s feminist b**ch. I’m soo happy,” she added.
They did perform together for Quavo’s song “Champagne Rosé,” and Cardi B paid homage to her by wearing the iconic Jean Paul Gaultier cone bra-inspired outfit that Madonna wore.
Some observers suggested that Madonna did not mean to demean her, but Cardi B insisted that it was the tone she used.
She doubled down and replied on Twitter, “Exactly, say what you want to say but don’t insult me the f***… Nobody gonna lil’ girl me (specially a white woman).”
She added, “I know exactly what she said and I understand but it’s about THE TONE… Calling me b***hes and putting clown emojis? The f***!”
In a different deleted tweet she added, “EXACTLY AND IM NOT DELETING S*** …IF IT WAS THEY FAVORITE ARTIST THEY WOULD BE CRYING…but since she mentioned the most hated women on the internet is “ yes take it” SUCK MY D*** I SAID WHAT I SAID!!”
