Cardi B has deactivated her Instagram account after engaging in a back and forth feud with fellow rapper Azealia Banks.Celebrity Feuds: The Biggest Ever!
Banks, 26, appeared on Power 105. 1’s The Breakfast Club on Friday, May 11, and she explained why she believed that Cardi was an “illiterate untalented rapper” and accused her of behaving like a “caricature of a black woman” during a time that was empowering for African-American women in society, following the release of Beyoncé’s groundbreaking 2016 album Lemonade.
“Two years ago, the conversation surrounding black women’s culture was really reaching an all-time high,” Banks said. “There was just this really, really, really intelligent conversation going on nationally and then everything just kind of changed and then it was like Cardi B.”Celebs Fight Back on Twitter!
She continued: “I’m just talking about this caricature of a black woman that black women themselves would never be able to get away with. Like, if my spelling and grammar was that bad, I’d be canceled. If Nicki Minaj spelled like that, we would be ragging on her all day.”
The “Bodak Yellow” MC, 25, responded to a clip of the interview with a comment via Instagram: “Beyoncé? Wasn’t Beyoncé the same woman she was talking s–t about and dragging all over the media? I’m from the hood, I speak how I speak, I am how I am,” she wrote. “I did not choose to be famous, people choose me! This is coming from a woman that bleached her skin but want to advocate. GOODBYE. I’m not apologizing or killing myself because of who I am.”
The “212” rapper responded to Cardi via Twitter: “So because I point out that you get away with being the typical caricature of a black woman that society says is wrong … and you respond by calling me unattractive and bringing up skin bleaching to basically make fun of me for not being light skinned?”The Biggest Breakout Stars of 2017
The “Be Careful” rapper then addressed Banks in a statement on her now-deleted Instagram account on Friday. “A woman who constantly finds joy in belittling black women can’t try and stand for them because it’s convenient!” she wrote. “The difference between me and you, I’ve never pretended to be or represent someone I’m not! I’ve made it where I am for being myself and staying true to that.”
“Just because I mix a few words up forgot to use commas or misspell a few words doesn’t make me illiterate and doesn’t make me stupid. And because I laugh a little harder or talk a little louder doesn’t make me a caricature!” the “I Like It” rapper continued. “You think your advocating for women and your doing the opposite! I pray you find peace in your own heart and reason in your own mind. Pray for your own success before you pray for the downfall of others.”
Banks has previously made headlines for openly criticizing other stars like Beyoncé, Skai Jackson, Iggy Azalea, Remy Ma and Rihanna.

Looks like the feud between Azealia Banks and Cardi B is still going strong…
As we’ve been reporting, Banks went on The Breakfast Club on Friday morning and made some controversial comments criticizing the Bodak Yellow star — calling her, among other things, “illiterate” and “a caricature of a black woman.”

Cardi responded at the time, but things have only heated up between the two of them since then — and it’s gotten so sticky that after REALLY calling out Azealia, Cardi B deleted her entire Instagram account while also locking her Twitter!
Fortunately, thanks to screenshots, we know exactly what the rapper said in response to Azealia before completely checking out of IG, and you can see it too (below):

Girl power! Nicki Minaj and Cardi B were spotted hanging out together at the 2018 Met Gala on Monday, May 7, after ongoing rumors that they are feuding.Met Gala 2018 Red Carpet Fashion: What the Stars Wore
The two rappers were chatting with one another inside the event at The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City, and the “Bartier Cardi” rapper, 25, was seen smiling while talking to Minaj.
Pregnant Cardi wore a cream Moschino beaded dress and a headpiece designed by Jeremy Scott, who stood near the pair during their conversation. The “Anaconda” rapper wore a red Oscar de la Renta gown and Tiffany & Co. jewelry and explained why she chose to go as a “temptress,” even though the theme for the night was Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination.
“You know what, because I’m the bad guy, and I wanted to make sure that the bad guy was here,” the rapper told E! on the red carpet. “Album dropping June 15. It’s called Queen.”Met Gala 2018 Headwear: The Best Heavenly Crowns, Veils and Headpieces to Grace the Red Carpet
The “Barbie Tingz” rapper, 35, previously opened up about the rumors that there was animosity between her and Cardi during an interview with Apple Music’s Beats 1 host Zane Lowe in April, and said the “Bodak Yellow” MC “really hurt my feelings.”
“I do want to say shout-out to Cardi and all the new female rappers who’ve been doing their thing,” Minaj said. “With Cardi B, she’s done exactly what she should have done. She’s just gone full-steam ahead. And, you know, congratulations to her.”
The “Starships” rapper then revealed that her mixed feelings toward the “Be Careful” rapper came about after they collaborated on the Migos song “MotorSport” last year. When the song was released, Cardi suggested that the Pink Print rapper redid her verse on the song to one-up her.Celebrity Feuds: The Biggest Ever!
“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,’” Minaj said. “The first interview [Cardi] did after ‘MotorSport’ came out, it just really hurt me ‘cause she looked so aggravated and angry. … I kind of felt ambushed.”
“That really, really hurt me because I really fully supported [Cardi],” she said. “And up until this recent interview she did [with Ebro Darden for Beats 1], I had never seen her show me genuine love in an interview. And I can only imagine how many girls wished they could’ve been on a song with Nicki Minaj. I’m not saying it in a cocky way … I’m saying it, like, the first thing out of your mouth when somebody asks you about a Nicki Minaj feature is, ‘She changed her verse.’ Excuse me?”
But Minaj made it clear that she didn’t have any bad blood toward Cardi and a source told Us Weekly that week that, “Nicki really respects Cardi and will always root for the success of other female artists and MC.”

The 22-year-old fashion designer told People:
“Why is anyone saying anything so mean to someone? A baby is a blessing. Why would you talk about it like it’s a bad thing? My sister is such a good person, I wouldn’t want nobody to talk bad about her. It really hurts. But I’m not gonna let them stress me out anymore. I’m tired of it!”
And now that the Bodak Yellow rapper’s secret is finally out, Auntie Henny couldn’t be happier:

She may not be asking for it, but Khloe Kardashian is receiving advice from all corners of the country right about now.
In the wake of this Tristan Thompson cheating scandal, most Internet users are urging Khloe to break things off with her long-time, no-good, disingenuous and horny boyfriend.
Except for that one talk show host who is basically blaming Kardashian for having her heart broken.
Then there’s Cardi B.
Unlike a significant majority of everyday people out there, the artist can actually relate to what Khloe is going through these days.
At least somewhat.
Unless you’ve been residing under a rock for the past half a week, you’re aware that multiple surveillance videos have surface that seemingly depict Thompson hooking up with various women who are NOT his baby mama.
In one piece of footage, he’s making out with a woman last October.
In another, he’s leading a different woman through the Four Seasons Hotel in New York very early on a Sunday morning.
Neither Thompson nor Kardashian has spoken out on this scandal, but we’ve been given no reason to not believe Thompson is a serial cheater.
So… now that Khloe has actually given birth to the estranged couple’s child, what should she do about Thompson?
“Just do what your heart feels like doing,” Cardi B said in a radio interview on Friday with Big Boy’s Neighborhood.
That feels like obvious advice, but it comes from a place of experience.
Cardi B is pregnant with her first child, a development she confirmed last week, and she’s set to have it with rapper Offset.
The artists are engaged… despite the fact that Offset cheated on at least one occasion on Cardi.
As a result, the singer can at least approach this Khloe and Tristan stuff from a place of real empathy.
“Do what your heart feels like is right,” she added.
“At the end of the day, everybody wants to act like they’re dating deacons and pastors and their relationship is perfect and you don’t know what type of things are going on in their relationship, you don’t know how old certain receipts are.”
This is sort of true.
Except that one of the aforementioned videos was recorded around 5 a.m. on April 1.
It does very clearly feature Tristan walking into a hotel with a woman who witnesses saw him dancing and flirting with earlier the same night.
Still, Cardi insists, every story is different.
Every relationship is different.
You can’t ever really know what’s going on inside someone else’s world.
“We had to fight for our love, because it wasn’t as easy,” she said in this interview of her and Offset, basically acknowledging the latter’s infidelity and adding:
“We just worked it out. Our family was involved. Our moms were involved.”
Sources have previously said that Kris Jenner is also involved at the moment, but she’s been telling Thompson to just sit back and let Khloe fly back to Los Angeles with their daughter if that’s what she wants to do.
Just two days removed from welcoming her girl into the world, Kardashian is yet to make up her mind.
She moved temporarily to Cleveland to raise this kid along with Thompson, but that was before his many instances of cheating were made public.
We really have no idea what she is going to end up doing, but we do know one thing for sure:
We’ll be able to tune in for Keeping Up with the Kardashians Season 15 to find out for certain!
The Hollywood Gossip
Speaking from experience. Cardi B, whose fiancé Offset was accused of being unfaithful late last year, believes Khloé Kardashian should follow her heart amid reports that Tristan Thompson cheated on the reality star throughout her pregnancy.Celebrity Couples Who Stayed Together After Cheating Scandals
“No, just do what your heart feel like doing, you wanna know something, just do what your heart feels like is right,” the 25-year-old pregnant rapper replied when she was asked about Kardashian’s situation during an interview with BigBoyTV on Friday, April 13. “Because at the end of the day, everybody wanna act like they deacons and pastors and they relationships is perfect and they don’t know what other people, you don’t know what type of things are happening in their relationship.”
“You don’t know how old certain receipts are,” Cardi B continued. “People like to make things seem like ’This happened two weeks ago!’ … Let them work things out.”Khloe Kardashian and Tristan Thompson Cheating Scandal: Everything We Know So Far
Back in December, a video emerged online of a man who appeared to be Offset, 26, in a hotel room with another woman. The following month, a second video that appeared to show the Migos member cheating surfaced. While Cardi B seemingly confirmed the rumors in a since-deleted tweet at the time, the engaged couple are still together and expecting their first child together.
“Cardi lives and breathes Offset,” a source told Us Weekly in January. “He has committed to her and they’re both very happy and stronger than ever now. She has zero intention of leaving him.”
Kardashian, meanwhile, welcomed her first child, a girl, with Thompson on Thursday, April 12, two days after the Daily Mail published footage of the NBA star, 27, kissing another woman at a club in New York City. Us Weekly confirmed on Friday that the Cleveland Cavalier star has been cheating on the Revenge Body host, 33, since at least November with a woman named Tania.Celebrity Babies of 2018
A source told Us on Thursday that Kardashian is “undecided” about the future of her relationship with Thompson.

As part of her double release of new singles Chun Li and Barbie Tingz, Nicki Minaj also gave a no-hold-barred interview on Beats 1.

In the talk, Zane Lowe didn’t pull any punches, asking about all the sore spots — Cardi B, Meek Mill, Drake.
But Nicki was ready to talk. Here’s the best (below)!
On Cardi B
Nicki and Cardi B have been rumored to have a quiet feud going for months now. How real is it?? Nicki says:
“The only thing that really really hurt my feelings was the first interview she did after Motorsport… I was like, what?”
“All of them made me look like I lied. She started using my hairdresser. I fully supported her and she never showed genuine love. They all went about and played the victim.”
“Up until this recent interview she did, I had never seen her show me genuine love.”
Sooooo… maybe things will be better from here on out?
On Meek Mill
Last November, Meek Mill was sentenced to 2-4 years in prison for violating his parole from 10 years earlier. This was months after he and Nicki had broken up, but it’s still obviously very important to her. She said:
“The judge in question did everything I told her. I can’t bad mouth her. I get into more detail on the documentary I’m shooting, and the album.”
She’s shooting a documentary about Meek?? Wow.
Drake famously traded diss tracks with Meek Mill, to whom she was engaged at the time. Nicki says after the beef was over, Drake told her, “I wasn’t worried about anything in that situation except, What if Nicki takes a shot? What if Nicki spits bars at me?”
Ha! She also said:
“Drake is always mad at me. We’re like an old married couple.”
“Drake has given me some of the best advice of my career. He’s very smart, you can’t take that away from him.”
On Her Social Media Hiatus
Why did she take a break from social media? Simple:
“Because I needed to focus. This is the best album in my life that I’ve ever created.”
That’s a bold statement coming from Nicki! She also says she’s announcing a tour soon and “can’t wait to go around the world.”
