Nicki Minaj was "mortified" by her altercation with Cardi B at New York Fashion Week.
Speaking on Beats 1 on Apple Music, she said: "The other night I was a part of something so mortifying, so humiliating to go through in front of upper echelon people - it's not about black or white - people who have their lives together.
"I was mortified ... I could not believe how humiliated I felt .... how we - and I use the term 'we' loosely - made ourselves look.
"I would never discuss anyone's child. It's so sad for someone to pin that on me. I would never talk about anyone's child's or parenting, I don't give a s**t. It's so crazy to me that people always need to make Onika the bad guy. if you're right in whatever you're doing, you don't ever have to make someone into the bad guy.
"You know I didn't say or never did talk about anyone's child ... I am not a clown, that's clown s**t. The other thing that is clown s**t is telling the world that they did s**t because you look dumb."
Soon after the incident, Cardi took to Instagram, where she claimed she let Nicki "talk big s**t about" her.
She shared: "I've let a lot of sh*t slide. I let you sneak diss me. I let you lie on me. I let you attempt to stop my bags, f**k up the way I eat! You've threatened other artists in the industry, told them if they work with me you'll stop f**king with them! I let you talk big s**t about me.
"I addressed you once in person, I addressed you a second time in person and every time you copped a plea!! But when you mention my child, you choose to like comments about me as a mother, make comments about my abilities to take care of my daughter is when all bets are f***ing off! I've worked too hardand come too far to let anybody f**k with my success!!! Bitches talk all that s**t in they raps but in real life they p**sy. This s**t really is for entertainment."
