Let's Catch You Up On This Weekend's Feud Between Azealia Banks And Cardi B
Yikes, these are seriously charged words and it was all because Azealia was talking about how the conversation surrounding black woman has changed since Beyoncé released Lemonade. "There was just this really, really, really intelligent conversation going on nationally and then everything just kind of changed and then it was like Cardi B".
She then stated, "This caricature of a black woman that black women themselves would never be able to get away with". "Like, if my spelling and grammar was that bad, I'd be cancelled. If Nicki Minaj spelled like that, we would be ragging on her all day", she added.
"I'm from the hood", she wrote on Instagram. I did not choose to be famous people choose me!
It seems Cardi B is taking a break from the platform that catapulted her to mainstream fame.
The video began circulating late Sunday night, and shows the "Bodak Yellow" rapper on the inside of a luxury boutique screaming at a crowd of people as her bodyguards, and the store security, try to gain control of the crowd. I've never dismissed my heritage or my culture, I've never pretended to sound like anyone or look like anyone for attention or to make me feel better about who I'm not! Do you think she'll be back soon?
It only further fueled Banks' anger towards Cardi, which prompted her to launch another attack where she called her illiterate and criticized her for agreeing to be the baby mama of a man who had a lot of children with other women since her fiancé Offset already has three other kids from previous relationships.
Cardi also commented on a post including the video of Azealia saying "I'm not apologizing or killing myself because of who I am". I can do both, and speak two languages fluently. She then calls on Azaelia to "pray for [her] own success before [she prays] for the downfall of others".
What next for Iraq as cleric Sadr heads for election win?
Sadr has led two uprisings against United States forces in Iraq and is one of the few Shia leaders to distance himself from Iran. He is now calling for the latest deployment of American troops to leave following last year's defeat of the Islamic State group.
