Lady Gaga defended Cardi B from the wave of criticism she received for her historic victory at the 2019 Grammy Awards in the category of Best Rap Album.
The singer spoke on Twitter and defended the rapper by posting a message in which she talked about how difficult it is to be a woman in the music industry, accompanied by a picture of the duo chatting during the ceremony.
It is so hard to be a woman in this industry. 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. pic.twitter.com/lunY27vn3E— Lady Gaga (@ladygaga) February 13, 2019
The 32-year-old artist said that Cardi’s fight must be celebrated, as she assured that she is worthy of her most recent victory in the delivery of the Grammys.
The couple of singers lived together at the gala when B approached Gaga to show her that she was a big fan of her work. It should be remembered that in 2016, Cardi tweeted that the star of “A Star Is Born” was one of his biggest influences.

The rapper became the first female soloist who managed to raise the statuette in the category of Best rap album, which caused frustration and anger on the part of many of the fans of this genre, especially because it left singers on the way Travis Scott , Pusha T and even the late interpreter Mac Miller .
After publishing a few videos of gratitude after the delivery of the Grammys, the singer shared another recording in which she defended herself against the criticism of the achievement of the material “Invasion of Privacy”, but erased it shortly after.
After deactivating her account on Instagram, Cardi posted on Twitter several of the positive messages that artists like Chance The Rapper and J. Cole sent to celebrate that the singer was left with the statuette.
