“Our stylists linked us up,” she said, admitting that both rappers were a “little shy.”

“They were like, ‘You guys got to get together. You girls got to link up.’ And I was like, ‘I know. You know I’m shy.’ And he was like, ‘You’ve got to get off that box and people need to get to know you.’ … And that’s exactly what we did. We linked up and we had a good time. … And then we started sending records to each other and she got on it and I was like, ‘Oh, man!’ … From there on we just worked hand in hand.”

Talking about how unexpected it is that a celebrity like her would be shy about meeting another celebrity, Cardi said, “Girls are like that. Especially me. When I meet any celebrity, big or small, I just — Oh my gosh! — want to hide.”

In fact, Cardi was rendered almost speechless the first time she met Beyoncé.

“I was so frozen that all I could remember was her eyes,” she said of the “Single Ladies” singer.
