Cardi B Responds to Accusations of Queerbaiting


Rolling Stone published a piece on "queerbaiting" in the music industry, focusing on artists like Billie Eilish and Nick Jonas who have been suspected of utilizing imagery and hints of same-gender attraction to entice LGBTQ fans despite themselves being (seemingly) heterosexual. In the piece, Cardi B and Normani got a mention for their interactions in the recent "Wild Side" music video, in which they are seen "naked and gyrating against one another."

Cardi B has responded to the accusation, raising concerns about the prevalence of the term and the harm that can come from interrogating the sexualities of public figures. In addition to the above tweet, she expressed further issue with the term, stating:

ONTD, what are your thoughts on real-life people being accused of "queerbaiting"?
