This isn’t the first time Cardi B has expressed her support for Spears.
Speaking on The Jason Lee Show in early 2023, Cardi discussed society’s hypocritical treatment of celebrities, calling Spears the perfect example.
In 2019, Cardi B called herself a “very big Britney Spears fan” after she found out that Spears does yoga while listening to her music.
“I love you, and I totally understand,” she told Spears via Entertainment Tonight at the time, referring to Spears’ stay at a wellness treatment facility that year.
“When you’re a celebrity, everyone wants to sue you, everyone wants a piece of the money that you work for — and it’s very frustrating. Then you have, like, the whole world looking at you, no privacy, it’s crazy. I can’t even imagine if you do it for such a long time like her,” the rapper added.
In 2022, Spears shared a video clip from her Maui vacation set to Cardi B’s 2017 debut single, “Bodak Yellow.”
