While speaking to Entertainment Tonightat the launch of her Fashion Nova collaboration yesterday, Cardi touched on her admiration for the pop star and even said she'd love to work with her at some point. However, things took a more serious turn when the topic of Spears' recent struggles — including a restraining order against ex-manager Sam Lufti and a stay at a mental health facility related to stress surrounding her father's health — came up.
"I love you and I totally understand," Cardi said in a heartfelt message to Spears. "Fame will really drive you insane. Not only will fame drive you insane, but it's like, once you have money, and everybody just wants to take it from you, or sometimes you just have, like, your own personal problems."
Cardi then went on to lament the lack of privacy for celebrities and said she sympathized with Spears, especially since she has been in the spotlight for so long.
"When you're a celebrity, everyone wants to sue you, everyone wants a piece of the money that you work for," Cardi continued. "It's very frustrating."
