The nominations for the 2018 Billboard Music Awards were announced on Apr. 17, and this year’s pool is full of promising talent. While the entire nominations roster is definitely something to get excited about, fans seem to be focusing on one particular category: Best Female Rapper. Cardi B, Nicki Minaj, and Bhad Bhabie have been nominated for the award, but only one is walking away with the award. According to Bhad Bhabie that wont’ be Nicki. In a new interview with TMZ, the rookie fired shots at Nicki Minaj, while singing Cardi B’s praises.
When asked how she felt about being nominated for the Billboard award, the teen stated that she was just pleased to have her name mentioned. “By being nominated I already won,” she confessed. She admitted that she probably wouldn’t win, but that it would go to another deserving artist, Cardi B. “Obviously Cardi is gonna win, but she deserves it I’m just getting started,” she continued.
She later shaded Nicki, saying that she wasn’t as good of a rapper as the Bronx artist. “Cardi is way better than Nicki, I don’t care what no one says,” Bhad Bhabie added, suggesting that she was siding with the “I Like It” artist in her reported feud with Minaj. “Cardi actually says stuff. Nicki just has attitude. So what, big deal.”
The “Barbie Tingz” rapper has not responded to Bhad Bhabie’s comments, but it’s likely she never will. Someone will have the last laugh when the Billboard Music Awards goes down on May 20. Stay tuned.
