Cardi B has called out Madonna after the singer claimed she paved the way for songs like ‘WAP’.

It all started when the ‘Like A Virgin’ artist spoke about her 1992 book, ‘S**’, on her Instagram stories on Saturday.

Madonna penned: “30 years ago I published a book called ‘S**’. In addition to photos of me naked, there were photos of men kissing men, women kissing women, and me kissing everyone. 

“I also wrote about my s**ual fantasies and shared my point of view about s**uality in an ironic way.

“I spent the next few years being interviewed by narrow-minded people who tried to shame me for empowering myself as a woman.”

Her post continued: “I was called a w****, a witch, a heretic, and the devil.

“Now Cardi B can sing about her WAP. Kim Kardashian can grace the cover of any magazine with her naked a** and Miley Cyrus can come in like a wrecking ball.”

Madonna ended the story with: “You’re welcome b******,” accompanied by a clown emoji.

Cardi B took offence to how the pop star signed off her post and expressed her frustration in a now-deleted tweet on her Twitter page.

The ‘I Like It’ rapper posted: “I literally [paid] this woman homage so many times cause I grew up listening to her…

“She can make her point without putting clown emojis and getting slick out the mouth…

“These icons really become disappointments once you make it in the industry that’s why I keep to myself.” 

Cardi B then interacted with fans in a series of now-deleted tweets, to further highlight how annoyed she was with Madonna, with one reading: “I know exactly what she said and I understand but it’s about THE TONE…

“Calling me b****** and putting clown emojis? The f***!”

“EXACTLY SAY WHAT YOU WANT TO SAY BUT DON’T INSULT ME THE F***… Nobody gonna lil girl me (especially a white woman),” Cardi B replied to someone else.

However, since the post and Cardi B’s rant, the pair have made up.

The ‘Bodak Yellow’ singer tweeted: “Talked to Madonna… It was beautiful… Have a great day and drive safely y’all.”

To which Madonna replied: “I love you Cardi B!! Always have and always will.”

Hollywood Unlocked founder Jason Lee also penned: “On the phone with Madonna and Cardi.

“Listening to both women share their perspectives on the communication going on has broadened their love for each other.

“Love this [signed a fly on the wall].”

Hollywood Unlocked also uploaded an Instagram video in which they spoke to Cardi B about the incident. 

“Had a beautiful conversation with Madonna,” the rapper said.

“I’m glad I had a conversation with Madonna because, you know, I am sensitive. Y’all already know I am a sensitive gangster.

“Sometimes when I read things, when I see things, I just be like, ‘Hey yo, what the f***’.

“And like, my feelings were hurt because to me, Madonna is not just no regular artist. She’s actually somebody I really look up to.”

‘S**’ was a raunchy picture book Madonna released around the time of her ‘Erotica’ album.

In a 1992 interview, the musician was asked about the message of the publication, to which she responded: “I think people’s reaction to specific situations in the book was much more a reflection of that person than me.”
