Cardi B's Celebrity Idol: Lady Gaga
Cardi's prayers were finally answered when she met Gaga at the 2019 Grammys. The rapper has always been open about her admiration for Gaga, and back in 2016, she tweeted, "When I was a teenager lady Gaga changed my life. She inspired me to be myself & be different."
Gaga also supported Cardi after she received backlash over her rap album of the year Grammy win. "It is so hard to be a woman in this industry," Gaga wrote alongside a photo of the two on Twitter. "What it takes, how hard we work through the disrespectful challenges, just to make art. I love you Cardi. You deserve your awards. Let's celebrate her fight. Lift her up & honor her. She is brave."
