Nicki Minaj has finally broken her silence after her rap rival Cardi B attacked her at the New York Fashion Week party last Friday.
DAILY POST on Saturday reported that Cardi B aggressively approached Nicki,hauled shoe at her over comments about her daughter, Kulture.
Speaking on the incident, Cardi B explained why she fought with Nicki.
However, Nicki finally addressing the incident on Monday said she was left ‘humiliated’ by her fight with Cardi B.
Speaking during Monday’s episode of her Queen radio show on Apple Music’s Beats 1, she said: ‘The other night I was a part of something so mortifying, so humiliating to go through in front of upper echelon people – it’s not about black or white – people who have their lives together.”
The rapper insisted that she did not speak ill of Cardi’s daughter, adding that if Cardi keeps fighting with people, she could ‘die.’
“I was mortified, I could not believe how humiliated I felt how ‘we’ loosely made ourselves look. I would never discuss anyone’s child. It’s so sad for someone to pin that on me.
“I would never talk about anyone’s child’s or parenting, I don’t give a shit. It’s so crazy to me that people always need to make Onika the bad guy. if you’re right in whatever you’re doing, you don’t ever have to make someone into the bad guy.
“You know I didn’t say or never did talk about anyone’s child. I am not a clown, that’s clown s**t.
“You put your hands on certain people you gonna die. PERIOD. And you all sitting here making this shit a joke? I’m not the b**es in the strip club and I’m not a b*** on a reality show. My money is very f**king long.’
“I just want people to know that Onika Tanya Maraj has never, will never speak ill on anyone’s child. I am not a clown,” Minaj maintained.
Cardi B’s side of the story
The mother of one wrote: “I’ve let a lot of shit slide! I let you sneak diss me, I let you lie on me, let you attempt to stop my bags.
“You have threatened other artists in the industry and told them if they work with me, you will stop working with them. I’ve let you talk shit about me.
“I have addressed you once in person, I addressed you a second time and every time you copped the plea but when you mention my child, you choose to like comments about me as a mother, make comments about my abilities to take care of my daughter is when all bets are f*ckin off!
“I’ve worked hard and come too far to let anybody f*** with my success!!!!
“ Bitches talk about all that shit in their raps but in real life are p***y!!”
Serena Williams saga
A cartoon that was drawn by an Australian cartoonist, Mark Knight, about Serena Williams’ reaction at the US Open on Saturday has become the subject of a trending conversation on Twitter.
Knight’s cartoon was published in Australia’s Herald Sun on Tuesday. It depicted the tennis star having a tantrum on the court at the US Open after she lost to a first-time winner, Naomi Osaka.
Condemnation of the cartoon has come from American civil rights activist, Reverend Jesse Jackson, British author JK Rowling and other social media users.
There are, however, others who believe that the cartoon was drawn in good faith and aptly captured the scene at the US Open.
According to Guardian UK, the cartoonist said, “I’m upset that people are offended, but I’m not going to take the cartoon down.”
“I can’t undraw the cartoon. I think people have just misinterpreted. Maybe there’s a different understanding of cartooning in Australia to America. It was a cartoon based on her tantrum on the day and that’s all it was.”
Bernice King, the chief executive of the King Center and daughter of Martin Luther King Jr, said the Herald Sun’s stance was “unfortunate”.
It was “without consideration for the painful historical context of such imagery and how it can support biases and racism today”, she said. “Why wouldn’t a human being care about that?”
Rev Jesse tweeted: “This despicable cartoon tried and failed to diminish the greatness & grace of @serenawilliams. Racism in any form is unacceptable. Push On @serenawilliams! #KeepHopeAlive!”

This great cartoon is (of course) being called racist and sexist.
If the artist was a black female would it still be labelled that?
I have played sport all my life.NEVER NEVER NEVER has such behaviour been acceptable ! Do the people who attack the cartoon not know what damage they are doing to sport ?? Defending that woman’s cheating and appalling behaviour is undermining their sport….. Good bye tennis…
This is disgraceful. @theheraldsun, if your team is still confused as to why this is not okay, please do your very overdue homework. Read a book like #ImStillHereby @austinchanning. Follow people like @RachelCargle. And most importantly, sit down and listen.

If this wasn’t about race, why is the opponent painted as a white, blonde girl? When in reality she wasn’t?
