Every year the fashion magazine, Harper’s Bazaar throw an iconic party, celebrating artists-this is an invite only event where celebrities wear some of the most extravagant designs (some even provide entertainment by singing etc).
This year, celebs like Christina Aguilera, Kendall Jenner, Winnie Harlow, Kelly Rowland, Christie Brinkley, Paris & Nicky Hilton, Evan Ross & Ashlee Simpson, Justin Therox, Russell Westbrook, La La Anthony, Dapper Dan and many more of course, including the most the talked about celebs that evening, Nicki Minaj and Cardi B.
At the party, Cardi allegedly can be heard during the altercation referring to this tweet:
Cardi later went to Instagram, backing her actions:

This is an evening to be beautiful, sexy, show off your designer’s outfits, network and socialize!!! Instead, what was highlighted were women of color, not getting along and being “ghetto”..(for lack of a better word). Cardi threw her shoe at Nicki and went to go at her, Security quickly responded holding Cardi back, while Nicki showed no reaction. Somehow during the altercation, Cardi wound up with a knot on her head (which some say came from a security guard’s elbow).
What grinds my gears is how this had to involve women of color, women in the rap industry, just women period at an upscale event. All this did was demonstrate the narrative that women can not get along. I only wish that Cardi did not refer to the “Love N Hip Hop” version of herself, but the beautiful, talented and now mother that she is. This should not have been the highlight of the evening.
