Both women were singing a different tune Saturday night (October 22) and Sunday morning. It started when Madonna posted to social media Saturday evening (October 22) about the 30th anniversary of her book S.E.X. and how she felt she had paved the way for other artists to be more open about their sexuality.
“Thirty years ago, I published a book called S.E.X.,” Madonna wrote. “In addition to photos of me naked there were photos of Men kissing Men, Woman kissing Woman and Me kissing everyone. 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.”
While the comment was self-satisfying, that wasn’t what Cardi B had an issue with. Instead, it was the final line Madonna wrote: “You’re welcome bitches,” the message read, followed by a clown emoji.
The next morning (October 23), Cardi B, in a series of now-deleted tweets, snapped back at Madonna and said the singer could “make her point without putting clown emojis and getting slick out the mouth.” She also said, “These icons really become disappointments once [you] make it in the industry. That’s why I keep to myself.”
Later, she also added: “EXACTLY SAY WAT YOU WANT TO SAY BUT DONT INSULT ME THE F— …nobody gonna lil girl me (specially a white woman).”
Things might’ve escalated quickly, but both women were able to jump on the phone with one another and make amends. That Sunday afternoon, Cardi B tweeted that she had “talked to Madonna” and described the conversation as “beautiful.”
The Queen of Pop also took to social media to profess her love.
The love fest continued when Cardi B returned the sentiment.
