As Nicki Minaj and Cardi B’s relationship continues slumping into an unfortunate downward spiral, many of their industry counterparts are speaking up on the nearly physical altercation between the femcees that’s split Hollywood in half.
There are those like hip-hop icon and shameless social media instigator 50 Cent, who’s grabbing his popcorn with the rest of the masses, and actress Vivica A. Fox, who agrees that Cardi’s physical outburst was justified in the moment. Folks like R&B songstress Kelly Rowland has maintained her position on neutral ground, insisting that now is simply not the time for woman-on-woman opposition. But amid Hollywood’s varying standings on the matter, there’s one position that fans hold in precedence above all: Beyoncé’s.
Now that fans have noticed a move from Queen Bey that they’ve interpreted as a subliminal vote for Nicki in the Barbie versus Bardi ballot, the Barbs are wrangling all across the internet with the BeyHive and Bardi Gang to substantiate their claims.
And it’s all thanks to one photo.
It’s worth noting that Nicki’s mugshot is just one of several that’s been used as a stage backdrop for Bey and Jay-Z’s On the Run 2 Tour among those of other Hollywood icons, like Snoop Dogg, Kimora Lee Simmons and the late Lisa “Left Eye” Lopez.
Others deem it a mere coincidence. And the BeyHive wants no parts of it all.
