Christina Aguilera missed Cardi B and Nicki Minaj brawl because they perform her song ‘Fighter’ at the annual on the Harper’s BAZAAR ICONS party.
Christina Aguilera provided the soundtrack of Nicki Minaj and Cardi B’s shoe-throwing fight, but they did not know that until after it was over.
“I wish I would have seen that this juiciness to go down,” Aguilera, 37, admitted on “Jimmy Kimmel Live” on Wednesday. “I’m one of those people who’s like,” What is going on?! What happened?” “
Minaj, 35, was reportedly surrounded by security as Cardi, 25, approached her and was intercepted by Minaj’s entourage, receiving a knot on her head, and hurling a red high heel in the process.
The scuffle was likely the result of more than a year’s worth of back-and-forth disses between rappers.
Meanwhile, the “Liberation” of the singer said that she was decompressing after her performance when she heard about the fight of her hair.
“I heard there was a fight that went on during my song ‘Fighter’ which is so appropriate,” she said. “I was like, ‘Oh my God, that is genius! Yaas, my music is the call of passion and emotion!’ But when I heard it was during the ‘Genie in a Bottle’ and I do a Migos version, so I was like, ‘Oh, Cardi excited!”. “
While Aguilera was once notorious for allegedly having a diva-attitude, she was not disappointed about stealing the spotlight, quipping, “Probably people would think that I’m angry that this happened at my show or whatever, but really, I’m just sad that I’m not on the first row. That is where the real show was, damn!”
While Cardi and Minaj’s beef reportedly started over social media messages in the “Bodak Yellow” rapper is not taking too kindly, Aguilera said that she actually used the medium to nip potential conflicts in the bud – and that she wished that she had had, Twitter or Instagram back in the days of her media-created rivalry with Britney Spears.
“You can use it to your advantage and it is a way to connect with your fans and it is a platform that you can use to express yourself in your own way,” she said. “And pumpkins that!”
