June 2023: Cardi B denies rumors that she shaded Ice Spice at Summer Jam.

Rumors that there be a rift in Ice and Cardi’s relationship surfaced after the former signed a partnership deal with Nicki Minaj, whose longtime feud with Cardi has dominated headlines for years.

These rumors were seemingly confirmed when Cardi performed her set at Summer Jam 2023 in Long Island, N.Y. During her set, she used a clip from Annie’s “Tomorrow 2,” which was accompanied by a backdrop featuring a young woman that looked eerily like ice.

Many assumed that the imagery took a shot at Ice’s short, curly, red hair. However, Cardi has since set the record straight.

“That’s not me, like come on now. First of all, y’all been wanting me to be messy. Y’all wanted me to be messy on the song, y’all wanted me to — nah, come on now,” she said later in an Instagram live video. “Cut the bulls--t, please. Get a mop. Y’all being too messy and y’all being annoying.”

There you have it! The gworls aren’t fighting and we love to see it.
