Miley Cyrus is stirring the pot with her latest tracks. Performing at BBC Radio-1’s ‘Big Weekend’ festival this past weekend, the former Disney Channel star debuted three new upcoming songs. One of them was “Cattitude,” in which she referenced a few big-named artists, including Nicki Minaj and Cardi-B.
“I love you Nicki, but I listen to Cardi.” Cyrus sang in her new single. That short line managed to get a few gasps from the audience. It seems she’s trying to get in the middle of one of the most public feuds in recent hip hop history.
Though the fight between Minaj and Cardi B has since settled down, it did reach a boiling point late last year. The two rappers reportedly battled it out at Harper’s Bazaar’s “Icons” party last September. Things got so heated, the “Bodak Yellow” artist threw a shoe at the “Anaconda” rapper. This alleged incident eventually spread throughout social media and became a huge topic among talk shows and late-night programs. A month later, however, both Minaj and Cardi B settled on a truce, posting on their social media accounts about “focusing on the positives.” They have yet to respond to pop star’s use of their names in her new upcoming single.
Cyrus herself had been in a famous feud with Minaj too. The rapper famously snarked back at the “Bangerz” singer during the 2015 Video Music Awards. “And now back to this b-tch that had a lot to say about me the other day in the press—Miley, what’s good?” Minaj remarked when she accepted the ‘Best Hip-Hop Video Award, in which Cyrus was the night’s host. Though similarly with the former’s feud with Cardi B, this fight has also since died down.Prior to her “Big Weekend” performance, the pop star has been busy teasing her new music, posting “SHE IS COMING” on her Instagram page with the date 5/31. Fans speculate it’s the date of her new album drop, which will reportedly include “Cattitude.” Other purported tacks that she also performed at the festival are “Mother’s Daughter” and “Dream.”
Cyrus is also busy promoting the new season of Black Mirror. Here, she’ll play a disgruntled pop star who uses new technology to achieve great lengths in fame and popularity. This new season of the hit anthology series premieres on June 5, 2019, on Netflix.
