SIA APOLOGIZES AFTER CONFUSING NICKI MINAJ FOR CARDI B ON TWITTER – (06/15/2020)
Sia has issued an apology after confusing Nicki Minaj for Cardi B on Twitter.
Fans of the rappers started a tweet-storm slamming Sia, causing the hashtag #Siaisoverparty to trend. It all began when a fan asked Sia if she would collaborate with Minaj in a tweet that included a photo of the rapper.
Sia replied: “I love @iamcardib.” Nicki’s fans were upset and brought up how the two rappers were once in a feud, but Sia seemed to think they were accusing her of drumming up a feud now.
Sia tweeted, “I don’t give a sh*t about feuds, George Floyd was f*cking murdered. Breonna Taylor. Murdered. Come on let’s rise in unity. You think @iamcardib and Nikki are so petty that they would want you focusing on a silly feud instead of REAL NEWS.”
Sia finally realized she mixed up the photos and tweeted, “My f*ck up @NickiMinaj.” Sia also tweeted, “Hey @iamcardib @NICKIMINAJ you aren’t thinking about a feud right now are you? We are focused on the problem of systemic racism.”
All of those tweets were deleted and Sia posted: “I totally misunderstood a tweet earlier that has resulted in me making a buffoon out of myself. Sorry @NICKIMINAJ and @iamcardib if you hear about it. Can I just like you both?”

A Britney Spears fan has started a petition on Change.org, asking Louisiana Governor John Bel Edwards to replace Confederate statues with busts of Britney.
The petition, started by Kassie Thibodeaux, had over 23,000 signatures at press time and calls on the Governor, Sen. Bill Cassidy, Rep. Cedric Richmond and the Louisiana State Senate and House to “do the right thing: Replace Confederate statues with an actual Louisiana hero and influential human being, Britney Spears.”
Historical statues are being toppled all across the country in the wake of George Floyd’s death and the resurgence of the Black Lives Matter movement. The petition says Britney is the perfect solution – citing her long list of contributions towards Louisiana, including money for Hurricane Katrina relief and flood victims.
