Lady Gaga has tweeted some kind words in favour of the 26-year-old rapper, uplifting her mood. Gaga wrote, “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.”

Meanwhile, there were others who did not seem to think highly of Cardi’s victory. The most prominent one being singer-songwriter Ariana Grande, whose now-deceased ex-boyfriend Mac Miller was also nominated in the category that Cardi won in. Ariana had been tweeting against Cardi's victory while the awards were underway at the Staples Centre, Los Angeles. Ariana had, however, been quick to backtrack on her remarks and managed to dodge a bullet. She later said her tweets were not in reference to Cardi being undeserving of the award.
People are divided over Cardi being awarded the Best Rap Album award for Invasions of Privacy. In another world, this might give her some material to work with for her next album.
