Uuummmm @RollingStone queer baiting? You do know we was trying to hide a whole baby bump right ?Also I’m married to a man but I have express soo much about my bisexuality and my experiences wit girls .All of a sudden “queer baiting” is the new word & people use it to the ground ! https://t.co/M3kn4NyJBs— iamcardib (@iamcardib) July 23, 2021
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:
I don’t like this new “queer baiting” word.I feel like it pressure artist to talk about their sexuality or their experiences that they don’t feel comfortable speaking about.If a artist kiss a girl on a video does that means she gotta show videos & text wit wit other women?— iamcardib (@iamcardib) July 23, 2021
