Cardi B was the host at the Met Gala 2022 after-party and she made a “joke” about cocaine that has now backfired.
Not only was she criticised for her remarks, but even fellow singer Billie Eilish got embroiled in the drama as some assumed there was some sort of tension between the two.
Cardi B was quick to slam these rumors and offered a clarification on her Met Gala after-party “joke”.
WHAT DID CARDI B SAY AT MET GALA 2022 AFTER-PARTY?
A viral video from the Met Gala after-party shows Cardi B standing on top of the bar.
She’s heard saying: “Make sure you got your drinks, make sure y’all do your little lines. Whatever the f**k you have to do. We got to turn the f**k up. I want everybody dancing!”
The ‘little lines’ comment went viral and many wrongly assumed that the rapper was encouraging the use of the drug.
Cardi has now come out and revealed that it was all just a joke.

RAPPER UPSET HER JOKE WAS “TWISTED”
Cardi B was live on Instagram on Tuesday, May 3 to offer a clarification on her ‘little lines’ remark.
She said: “I make one joke as a hostess because I am hosting a party and it gets twisted. Why can’t every celebrity joke around and say slick s**t?”
“I’m tired. I can’t be myself anymore. Anything that will go on social media is always bad.
“If I could click my f**king feet three times and go back to f**king 2013 when I was just a regular bitch, dancing and making money every single night, that is where I want to be. That’s when I was me,” she explained.
Cardi also said that she isn’t someone who follows the “whole go by the book, gotta watch what you say, gotta watch what you do” rule in life.
NO BAD BLOOD BETWEEN CARDI AND BILLIE EILISH
The video from the after-party gained more attention after fans noticed Billie say “so weird” after Cardi made the cocaine joke.
In no time at all, people claimed that Billie’s comment was directed at Cardi and assumed that there’s tension between them.
But, Cardi shut them down by sharing Instagram audio clips of the two in which the latter is heard explaining that her “weird” comment was for those who were desperate to get pictures with the after-party host.
“I was f*****g calling the people around you weird because everybody was coming up to you and shoving their phones into your a**. And I was like, ‘just look at her, with your eyes’,” Billie is heard saying.
Cardi says in response that the internet is “trying to divide us.” She’s also heard calling Billie “my baby”.
