Although Lady Gaga and Cardi B met only once in their entire lives, at the Grammys this year, the Shallows singer is already vouching for her fellow compatriot. Basically, Lady Gaga is standing up for all the women in the music industry by stating how difficult it is for the world to endure the female brigade in such field. The 9-time Grammy award winning artist, who also earned three trophies in this year's awards, came out in defence of rapper Cardi B, who was criticised for her win.
Taking to Twitter, Gaga tweeted, "It is so hard to be a woman in this industry. What it takes, how hard we work through the disrespectful challenges, just to make art. I love you, Cardi. You deserve your awards. Let’s celebrate her fight. Lift her up & honour her. She is brave." With this, Gaga also shared a cute picture of the two of them meeting at the Grammys.

The I Like It Like That singer won her first ever Grammy this year, however, was severely criticised for her win as many called her out and said that she didn't deserve it. Many explicitly stated that her arch-nemesis Nicki Minaj deserved the trophy. After all the social media drama, Cardi B finally shared a rant on her Instagram. Her rant including her stating, “It’s not my style for people to put other people down to uplift somebody else,” a reference to the dig BET made at Nicki. “That’s not my style and that’s not what I’m with,” Cardi said, adding, “I don’t support that.”
Cardi B's venting continued as she brought out the fact file from netizens last year, “I remember last year when I didn’t win for ‘Bodak Yellow’ and everybody was like, ‘Cardi got snubbed,'” she recalled. “Now this year’s a f— problem?! My album went two-time platinum, my n—, and every chart that there was, my album was always Top 10. Number one album, as well.”
The rapper also spoke about how she shut herself from the world when she was pregnant as she continued to work towards delivering a hit album. “I locked myself in the studio for three months, my n—. Didn’t go to sleep in my bed sometimes for four days straight — pregnant!” she explained. “While everybody was harassing me like, ‘You’re not gonna do it, we know you pregnant, your career’s over…'” She subsequently deactivated her Instagram account following this.
