Cardi B Defends Her Decision To Put Kylie Jenner In Her 'WAP' Music Video: 'This Is Not About F--in Race'

Cardi B is defending her decision to feature Kylie Jenner in her “WAP” music video.

After the visual for the hot song dropped, many fans voiced their opinions on having Kylie in the video at all and also spoke out about the comparisons she noticed between Kylie and Normani, who is also in the video.

Some even started a petition to wipe her out of the visual all together.

“Normani did ALL this and Kylie walked down the hall and opened a door. If that’s not a perfect visual indication of Black women having to do the most…” one Twitter user posted and Cardi responded to it.

“Normani is one of the best female artist that dances like she dances her f***in ass off!” Cardi wrote. “Why would she open a door? Please tell me how that would make sense? The best part of the song is the beat and hook, it what makes you want to shake your ass.”

She went on, “Not everything is about race. Theres issues out here in the world that is about race and I preach all the time about. This is not about f***in race.”

Cardi continued, “Why did I put Kylie on my music video? She treated my sister and daughter so lovely at her kid’s bday party. Travis and Set are real close and Kris Jenner have given me advice on certain things I ask for and her husband real cool with mine.”

Cardi B Refers To Nicki Minaj As The One Recent Female Rapper Who 'Dominated' In New Interview

Cardi B is kind of giving a shout out to Nicki Minaj.

While not naming her by name, in her latest interview with Apple Music, the 27-year-old rapper opened up how female rappers once dominated the music scene and why she thinks they got quiet.

“When I was younger, when I was eight… No wait, I’m lying. When I was six, seven, eight, there was a lot different female rappers. And then there was a time that there was no female rappers at all. I have to keep replaying songs from the early 2000s. I have to keep replaying it, replaying it, replaying it because for a while there wasn’t no female rapper,” Cardi shared. “And then there was one female rapper that dominated for a very long time.”

She adds, “And she did pretty good. She’s been still dominating.”

Cardi went on, saying that “you never, you never know if there is ever going to be a drought. You never know when people get tired of all the female rappers or people just stop… I don’t know, promoting them. Cause I don’t know what happened in that, in a time period. But there was none at all for a hot minute. So you just never know the prediction. Maybe there will be a lot. Maybe there’s going to be a time that people just get tired of it. And then there might be another rapper that just come and just take it over. You just never know, you know what I’m saying? We never know.”

There’s been a long feud between Cardi and Nicki, who met on the set of Migos’ “MotorSport” video. Their dispute escalated after a fight at a Fashion Week party in 2018.

She continued, saying that the “terrible” part comes when food is the subject.

“She wants to eat ice cream. It can be like 11 o’clock and it’s like, ‘You want ice cream right now? I know how you get when you eat ice cream or a certain type of candy.’ She just gets too hyper,” Cardi adds. “‘ll be like, ‘Oh my gosh. I’m dealing with a me’… She has this look where I’ll be like, ‘You are up to no good.’”
