In the video, the TMZ staff explained that Cardi B’s outfit at the star-studded event took months to make but she could not remember the designers when she was asked about it. The reporter then proceeded to ask Ayra Starr is she didn’t find that to be disrespectful of the rapper.

She said:

“The dress that she wore to the Met Gala took months to make and she didn’t remember the name of the designers who made the dress. She said she was supposed to stand and pose on the podium and there was a lot going on but you’ve been on a lot of red carpets, is it disrespectful to not know the designer’s name?”

Ayra Starr responds to TMZ reporter

After being asked her opinion about Cardi B forgetting the names of her designers at the Met Gala, Ayra Starr proceeded to answer the question by attributing the rapper’s actions to nerves.

However, she quickly caught herself and said she did not know or have an opinion on the matter. In her words:

“It’s nerves sometimes, I don’t know, to be honest I don’t know.”

However, the TMZ reporter was relentless and continued to try to get Ayra Starr to speak on the matter. The reporter told the Nigerian singer that she had been to a lot of red-carpet events and that the outfits were the main reason people were there. She then asked the Sabi Girl how she would feel if someone forgot the name of her new album. The TMZ staff also told Ayra to advise Cardi B on how to remember things in future.

She said:

“You’ve been on tons of red carpets, it’s kind of why you’re there. So if I came to you and said I forgot the name of your new album, you’d be like ‘what the hell, do you research girl’. Is there a way that you remember things that you need to know that maybe you can give advice to Cardi B on?”

However, Ayra Starr had this to say:

“I don’t know. I love Cardi B always, every time.”
