When I saw that both Nicki Minaj and Cardi B were attending the Met Gala last night, I instantly became thankful that the theme was think of the Met Gala’s theme was religion. Because Nicki and Cardi in the same room brings up images of an old priest and a young priest shooting at them with a spray bottle of holy water as they clawed at each other. Nicki let it be known last month that she thought Cardi Bi had done her dirty during the promotion for the song “MotorSport” by implying she was jealous and bitter. Nicki also thought she was owed a little more respect from Cardi. But whatever hatchet they shared was clearly buried outside the Met Gala, because last night they were caught playing nice inside.
Cardi was seen smiling as she was talking to Nicki. But was it a real smile or that fake cheek-straining passive aggressive kind that you do because you know it will piss your enemy off 100% more than a scowl. The clue might be Jeremy Scott. He doesn’t look like he’s about to spring into action, so I’m going to guess it’s a real smile.

Even though it would appear everything is good between Nicki and Cardi, things ended up getting a little messy later. TMZ says that early this morning, Cardi’s security team beat up a fan that was waiting for her outside a post-Met Gala event. Cardi was leaving around 2am when the spotted her and asked for an autograph, a request she turned down. The fan persisted, and that’s when they got tackled by her security team. The fan ended up going to the hospital where they were treated for back and neck pain. TMZ says that the NYPD is currently investigating.
So there was a brawl at the Met Gala, but it didn’t involve Nicki or Cardi. I see that. Even if Nicki and Cardi still hated each other’s guts, they weren’t going to fight. And it’s not because Cardi is pregnant (that little baby could have gotten in at least one good right hook). Nicki, in Oscar de la Renta, and Cardi in Moschino, were covered in just too much fashion. You can’t slap a bitch when your arm is weighed down with 20 lbs of pearls and imported French organza.
