In the midst of everything brewing in the feud between Nicki Minaj and Cardi B, everybody and their momma have an opinion to share.
Hip Hop Troll 50 Cent says he’s grabbing his popcorn and watching with everyone else while Vivica A. Fox thinks Cardi’s role in the altercation was justified in the moment.
The latter stated "I just believe that Nicki knows how to push people's buttons, and she does it very passive aggressively," during an interview on Sway In The Morning.
Kelly Rowland (who continues to be amazing
) is playing neutral ground and argues that it’s not the right time for women to be fighting each other in the midst of the fight for equality.
“I think in a time where Serena Williams is fighting for equality—I love both Nicki Minaj and Cardi B and I think that they are extremely talented—and in a time when she is fighting for women’s equality, we just can’t be fighting,” Kelly told E! News.
“It’s no time for us as women to fight and they are just so talented and I just genuinely love them both so much, but it’s just not the time. It’s not the time. We have way bigger issues as women, you know what I mean? So I don’t know. I’m Switzerland, I don’t [expletive] know,” she concluded.
When it comes to the Nicki/Cardi feud, the one superstar opinion that fans hold in precedence above all: Beyoncé Knowles-Carter.
Fans have noticed a move from the Queen that they have said is a vote for Team Nicki. The Barbs are going wild on the internet interacting with the BeyHive and Bardi Gang to substantiate their claims.
And it’s all thanks to one photo.
Nicki Minaj’s Barb army have proudly pointed out that Beyoncé’s website shows a new photo upload of Minaj’s infamous 2003 mugshot.
It’s worth noting that Nicki’s mugshot is just one of several that’s been used as a stage backdrop for Bey and Jay-Z’s On the Run 2 Tour. If you go to a concert, you’ll also see Snoop Dogg and the late Lisa “Left Eye” Lopez amongst others.
Nicki posted about The Carters asking for permission to use it back in June:
When Jay asks for your mug shot for his tour backdrop 😩
But while some fans believe the picture being added to Beyonce.com was a definitive move from the Queen, other’s think it’s just a coincidence. The BeyHive want no part of this and don’t want Beyoncé’s name mentioned in this at all.
Cardi B posted a clip on her Instagram page that featured a concert stop Bey & Jay’s On The Run II tour.
In the video, her #1 song “Bodak Yellow” is being blasted and then turned off, but concertgoers kept rapping the lyrics for 30 more seconds.
Bardi Gang is trying to argue that it’s possible all of this proof may mean the opposite!
We know Beyoncé is the Queen of subliminal/subtle messages- do you think she’s Team Nicki or Team Cardi or neither?
