Cardi B sneak in a shot at Nicki Minaj during her acceptance speech for Best New Artist.
Cardi B won the MTV Video Music Awards for Best New Artist and she deserves it. The Bronx rapper had an amazing year with the release of her debut album Invasion of Privacy and having her first child. During her acceptance speech, Cardi spoke about ignoring her critics who told her that she is committing career suicide by having a baby when her career was just taking off.
“I am so happy to receive this award,” she said. “A couple of months ago a lot of people were saying ‘you’re gambling your career, you’re about to have a baby what are you doing?’ I had a baby, I carried the baby and now am still winning awards.”
Cardi B then thank her fans for their support and end her speech by taking a shot at Nicki Minaj whom she has been silently beefing with ever since she broke onto the scene. “I want to thank all my fans, my family that supported me all the love,” she continues. “All the love from my fans, from my friends that everybody show me is genuine, is beautiful, and that’s something that god gave me that you can’t buy, b*tch.”
That last sentence is a clear reference to Nicki Minaj calling her out last week in an interview with Ebro where she seemingly said Atlantic Records label bought Cardi B her number one song. Bardi has since responded on social media but she is also pushing back using her platform at the 2018 MTV VMAs.
Offset was spotted in the audience clapping and laughing while showing his stamp of approval to what his baby mama had to say. Watch a portion of Cardi B’s acceptance speech below.
