Monday night’s Met Gala wasn’t just about today’s hottest celebs playing dress up for the night, apparently, the Met Gala resulted in the reunion of rappers Cardi B and Nicki Minaj for the first time since their supposed beef with one another became public.
After being photographed together having what looked like an awkward and intense conversation, the memes and captions of what the two female emcees were talking about began to roll in.

After photos of the pair chatting went viral, a pregnant Cardi B finally opened up on Wednesday during a radio interview about what the two were chatting about.
Cardi told Howard Stern on his SiriusXM radio show that her convo with Minaj was simply two women taking care of a misunderstanding.
As for what was said between the two and the true cause of the “misunderstanding,” Cardi told listeners that she plans to keep those details private.
While Cardi plans on keeping the convo and its details under wraps, blogs and social media had a field day of the supposed beef after it was being reported that Minaj allegedly was jealous of Cardi B after her career after it took off. The beef supposedly hit an all-time high shortly after and Minaj tearfully told Zane Lowe it was over mixed messages she felt were sent by Cardi in interviews about her work on their collaboration, “MotorSport,” and why they weren’t able to shoot the video together.
Whatever the real issue was, Cardi told Stern that all the beef was squashed privately between the two on Monday.
“I never was feuding with anybody. There was a misunderstanding,” she said. “I think she felt a certain type of way about something. I definitely felt a certain type of way about something. Didn’t want to ever talk about it in public because I felt like we are going to see each other again and we will talk about it. It’s always like little issues. But the thing is, it’s always little issues, but fans are always going to make it into a big thing. I spoke to her in the Met Gala about it. And it’s just like, ‘See, it’s just something that needed to be talked about.’”
Cardi’s never been one to back down when someone comes at her. Her clapback game is strong AF, but in the case of her misunderstanding with Minaj, the world will just have to take Cardi’s word for it. As for how the media portrayed the big beef, Cardi was vocal about not liking how the media pits artists against one another.
“The issue was something that the press didn’t know because I don’t like talking,” she said. “I’m not going to talk about it. But I really felt a certain type of way, my feelings were really hurt, and I was on some, ‘This is why I keep to myself. That’s why I can’t f–k with nobody.’ But I just felt like the media, they just so thirsty to also put colored women against each other. Not even hip-hop. I see people put R&B women against each other, and I don’t understand why they do that and why they want to do that.”
