During the melee last month, the “Bodak Yellow” breakout star alluded the fight was sparked by comments Nicki made about Cardi’s parenting skills.

“For a while now she’s been taking a lot of shots at me,” she told W. “I spoke to her twice before, and we came to an understanding. But she kept it going.”

The final straw came when Nicki allegedly liked, and then unliked, a derogatory tweet about Cardi’s new role as a mother.

“I was going to make millions off my Bruno Mars tour, and I sacrificed that to stay with my daughter,” she said. “I love my daughter. I’m a good-ass fucking mom. So for somebody that don’t have a child to like that comment?”

While Cardi acknowledges the Harper Bazaar ICONS party might not have been the most appropriate moment to confront Nicki, she had a simple explanation for that.

“So many people want to say that party wasn’t the time or the place, but I’m not going to catch another artist in the grocery store or down the block,” she said.

Elsewhere in the interview, Mrs. Offset recalled some advice she received from Kardashian matriarch Kris Jenner.

“Kris told me, ‘People are going to talk badly about you, but it doesn’t really matter as long as you’re making money,’” she said. “And it’s true. If you read the online comments, it seems like everybody hates the Kardashians. Each and every one of them. But how can that be true if everything they sell sells out?”
