Cardi B has never been one to hide how she feels.
Cardi says she doesn’t expect fellow artists she collaborates with to “pick a side.”
The comments stem from an interview Cardi gave to Tamara Dhia on The Spout Podcast last month amid coverage of “Bongos,” her second collaboration with Megan Thee Stallion.
“I just sometimes do be afraid and everything because I’m the type of person that if I like you and I meet you and we do a song, I don’t expect, like, you to pick a side or anything,” Cardi said after the host praised her for “championing and collaborating with other women” in the industry while many still are hellbent on pitting them against each other. “I feel like you can work with anyone you want to work with. Because at the end of the day, this is a business and you gotta look out for yourself always.”
That said, Cardi added, she would prefer if artists she chooses to work with refrain from “fake bitch” behavior.
“Just don’t shit on me or don’t show me you’re kinda like a fake bitch because that be breaking my heart,” she said.

While Cardi’s remarks were not made in reference to a specific person or situation, the podcast clip resurfaced following baseless claims that made the rounds last month in response to news that Nicki Minaj’s husband had received a house arrest order.
“KEEP ME AND MY MANS OUT YALL FUCKIN MOUTH!!!” Cardi said in a tweet in response to chatter alleging she and Offset somehow had something to do with this legal development.
Also in September, Cardi B made her Hot Ones debut, resulting in a memorable episode during which she spoke about her love of FDR and shared her thoughts on recent UAP news.
