Monday night was filled with fashion from the future and religious details as the, “Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination” theme of the 2018 Met Gala took form. The night is claimed as “fashion’s biggest night out,” as celebrities and industry icons come together for a night of fundraising for the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City.
The night was full of love and jaw-dropping wearable art. Cardi B, who has had the year of her LIFE, attended her very first Met Gala along side Moschino designer Jeremy Scott, who designed her jewel-covered, bead-encrusted dress and headpiece. Of course, Cardi had the best accessory of the night: her baby bump! Her boo and baby daddy, Offset came in matching outfits with his Migos squad, but the two were seen together later in the evening.
Around 2 a.m., Cardi and Offset were seen leaving a post-Gala event. In the video, a fan can be heard asking Cardi for her autograph, and she seems physically bothered by his persistence. Next thing you know, the fan is getting attacked by a group of people. According to TMZ, it was Cardi’s security that had the man on the ground as they punched and kicked him. The man looking for an autograph told cops that 3 security guards shoved him to the ground and started to beat on him. He was taken to a hospital where he was treated for neck and back pain.
Police are investigating.
Cardi even ran into Nicki Minaj, something I’m sure both women knew would happen at an event like this. The picture of the private conversation went viral as everyone wished they could be a fly on the wall for such a big moment in hip hop. The two New York rapper have had somewhat of a unspoken and really just confusing, social media instigated beef. In reality, was there or is there even a beef at all?
Social media turned the two women of hip hop against each other as soon as Cardi step onto the field, as if there could not be two dominate women in the culture at once. #TeamBarbie and #TeamBardiGang quickly formed as fan screamed out why one female was better than the other in their eyes. Things only got worse when the two collabed on the Migo’s summer hit, “Motorsport.” The release of the song was a weight lifted, everyone thought harmony was near, but the beef between fans only grew stronger when the two did not appear in the “Motorsport” video together. When asked in interview about the inside scoop as to why, no direct answers ever came from the Migos. And to Nicki’s memory, Cardi only talk about the fact that Nicki changed her verse on the song. Something that Nicki said hurt her feelings. She was looking for more praise and appreciation from the young artist in exchange for working with someone of Nicki’s stature at such an early part in her career.
Which now has everyone wonder, how did that conversation between Cardi and Nicki go?!
