Several celebrities headed to The Standard in New York City for a Met Gala afterparty. Cardi B gave a speech, surrounded by fans with phones. One attendee even captured Eilish mouthing the words “so weird,” which some interpreted to be about the rapper. Shortly after, Cardi B took to social media, confirming there was no beef between the artists.
“I hate the internet because one, how do y’all turn one of the most lit parties into drama?” Cardi B captioned the tweet. “Two, ‘Ocean Eyes’ is the song I cater to my daughter. Three, Billie is my f*****’ baby. Yesterday from the Met to the party, everything was drama-free. Why do y’all wanna turn everything into mess?”
The tweet earned several thousand likes from fans. Cardi B also posted a voice message from Eilish, in which Eilish commented on the video clip and the real reason she said “so weird.”
