Dionne Warwick Praises Cardi B for Being 'Authentically Herself' — and the Rapper Responds!
On Saturday, the iconic singer revealed that her niece Brittani (who taught her how to use Twitter) introduced her to the rapper and Cardi B is happy about it.
"After today, I can confidently add 'Cardi B' to the list of people my niece has opened my eyes to. More on this tomorrow...," the 80-year-old tweeted. Minutes later, she added, "Cardi B is authentically herself 😂❤️. I have only seen video clips. No music yet. More on this tomorrow..."
The 28-year-old rap star seemed ecstatic to hear the news, quote tweeting Warwick's comment with "OMGGGGG I STAN !!!!"
As promised, the following day, Warwick added, "I did not listen to Cardi B's music. Brittani sent me a video on the YouTube and a clip from her show where she dances with the very effervescent [choreographer] @msdebbieallen."
"I do have one question," she wrote. "What does Offset mean?"
Warwick also took the time to defend the couple after she noticed "mean responses" about the two.
"It's ok Miss Dionne I get it all the [time]," replied Cardi. "This new generation is wicked !"
"Keep being you!" wrote Warwick, before asking again what her husband's stage moniker meant.
With hilarious questions and comments on Twitter, Warwick has been poking fun at the younger generation of stars on the platform. She even earned her own billboard in New York City after tweeting, "Please do not bring that foolishness into 2021" in December.
"A friend alerted me that Wendy Williams was spending a lot of not nice time speaking on me," she tweeted. "I tuned in to her show to catch the last few minutes of her speaking about me and as in the past, she seems not to be able to speak without maliciously made comments."
In December, Warwick's niece Brittani spoke to PEOPLE about her Aunt Dionne's viral tweets and why Twitter was the perfect place for Warwick to express herself.
"Aunt Dionne is very much the kind of person that has quick inquisitive thoughts. She'll tell you in a heartbeat that she's nosy. She's always wondering things," Brittani said.
"The great thing about Aunt Dionne is she brings such joy just by being herself, even if she's being very firm and stern with you, it's through love," she added.
