Cardi B isn't taking any shade from Madonna.
Last night (Oct. 22), Madonna posted an Instagram Story in which she explained the impact of her 1992 coffee table book Sex, and how she paved the way for women to be open about their sexuality.
"30 years ago I published a book called S.E.X. in addition to photos of me naked there were photos of Men kissing Men, Woman kissing Woman and Me kissing everyone," she began. "I also wrote about my sexual fantasies and shared my point of view about sexuality in an ironic way."
"I spent the next few years being interviewed by narrow minded people who tried to shame me for empowering myself as a Woman," she continued. "I was called a whore, a witch a heretic and the devil. Now Cardi B can sing about her WAP. Kim Kardashian can grace the cover of any magazine with her naked ass and Miley Cyrus can come in like a wrecking ball."
"You're welcome bitches ......." she concluded, adding a clown emoji at the end.
Cardi B did not appreciate Madonna name-dropping her in the post. First, Cardi dug up one of her old Instagram posts where she praised Madonna after meeting her for the first time.
"I met my real life IDOL Madonna. I can't even believe I performed at her event and it was the most meaningful performance ever," the post read. "I grew up with my mom listening to Madonna for hours. I performed 'Material Girl' freshman year in High school, listen to her all my photo shoots to have super confidence and always mentioned her in my interviews. The best part about it is she was everything i thought she would be a Liberal Kick ass feminist bitch. I'm soo happy."
The Bronx rapper captioned the screenshot in a tweet where she added, "I literally payed this woman homage so many times cause I grew up listening to her …she can make her point without putting clown emojis and getting slick out the mouth ..These icons really become disappointments once u make it in the industry that’s why I keep to myself."
Afterwards, Cardi B fired off a number of tweets justifying how she defended herself against Madonna's name-drop.
So far, Madonna has not yet responded to Cardi B's acidic tweets as of Sunday morning.
