Even worse, she indirectly stated that she was a disappointment.
Cardi B took issue with Madonna’s reflection on her “S.E.X.” book after the latter stressed that she had faced harsh criticism in the past for her songs while subtly emphasizing how she had paved the way for the artists of this generation.
In an Instagram story uploaded on Saturday, Madonna wrote, “30 years ago I published a book called ‘S.E.X.’ In addition to photos of me naked there were photos of Men kissing Men, Woman kissing Woman and Me kissing everyone.”
“I also wrote about my sexual fantasies and shared my point of view about sexuality in an ironic way,” she continued, adding that for the following several years, she was subjected to interviews with dismissive people who sought to humiliate her for “empowering herself as a woman.”
“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,” she concluded her statement. “You’re welcome bitches ……. 🤡”
I talked to Madonna …It was beautiful 🥲….Have a great day and drive safely yallll😘— Cardi B (@iamcardib) October 23, 2022
Soon later, in a since-deleted tweet, the “WAP” singer addressed Madonna’s statement, saying, “I literally paid this woman homage so many times cause I grew up listening to her.”
“She can make her point without putting clown emojis and getting slick out the mouth,” she remarked. “These icons really become disappointments once u make it in the industry that’s why I keep to myself.”
Good thing, due to the two’s quick reconciliation and subsequent tweets expressing how much they love each other and how their conversation about the issue went well, both of their viewpoints briefly became hot topics on social media.

Madonna was wrong for randomly mentioning Cardi B. No matter what y’all say, it was unnecessary. Just because an artist is a legend doesn’t mean they can’t be wrong on certain things.— GUTTA SNIPE 🧔🏿♀️ (@clapmytweets) October 23, 2022
what madonna did is reminiscent of what lana deal rey did which is trying to make a valid point but bringing other women into it & shading them in the process cus you’re jealous of how much more receptive the public is to them than you i guess? it’s always white woman doing this— Cardi B’s Attorney (@belcathot) October 23, 2022
