Cardi B is sick and tired of fame! She’s sounding off about the backlash she has been receiving after she made a joke about “doing drugs” during Playboy’s Met Gala afterparty. Billie Eilish was caught on camera saying “she’s weird,” which started speculations that she was shading Cardi.
Both Cardi & Billie set the record straight in the DMs. Everything inside….
Folks were in an uproar after a video of Cardi joking about "doing drugs" and Billie Eilish calling her “weird” afterwards started circulating. In the clip, Cardi speaks before the crowd, encouraging people to get drinks and then she jokingly sniffed and placed her finger under her nose, alluding to snorting that white stuff.
“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 **k up. I want everybody dancing!,” she said.
Right after, it cuts to Billie Eilish saying, “she so weird.”

The Grammy winning raptress teamed up with Playboy as publication's newest Creative Director to host “The Boom Boom After Party” held at the Standard’s Boom Boom Room.

Despite the post, Cardi shut down the rumors that she and Billie have “beef.” The “WAP” raptress hopped on social media to share a screen recording of her conversation with Billie in the DMs. They two artists sent voice notes to one another about the “incident.”
"Oh my God, I was so worried that you were going to see that. I was f*cking calling the people around you weird because everybody was coming up to you, shoving their phones into your ass. And I was like, ‘Just look at her with your eyes!’,” Billie said in the voice memo.
"The internet is trying to divide us. They don't understand that you're my baby,” responded Cardi. Listen below:

The 29-year-old mom-of-two went on to explain how frustrated she is with fame, insisting what she said while hosting the party was a JOKE.
“Fame has turned me into a prisoner,” she said in an IG Live. ”I really feel like I’m a prisoner to fame. I’m not myself anymore."
“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?” she told her followers, admitting she’s “scared” to make any wrong moves. “I’m tired. I can’t be myself anymore,” she continued. “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 b*tch, dancing and making money every single night, that is where I want to be. That’s when I was me.”
In her eyes, God has "cursed" her with fame and she's over it. She told her fans not to wish to be famous - just wish to be rich.

Speaking of the afterparty, Wendy Williams - who recently said she's in the process of getting her show back - was reportedly in the mix. Hairstylist Derick Monroe shared a photo of the daytime talk show host after he got her all dolled up before she hit the NYC streets:
