Yes, even the biggest stars in the music industry get a little camera shy.

While Cardi B may be extremely close with Megan Thee Stallion after collaborating on the 2020 smash-hit single "WAP," it wasn't always that way.

In an exclusive sneak peek of iHeartRadio Presents SeeHer Hear Her: Celebrating Women in Music, Cardi B admitted she was hesitant to put herself out there in front of the talented artist.

"Megan came out and for like a whole year, I never interacted with her because I was like, I don't know. I'm too shy and everything," she admitted. "I feel like other artists are shy too. Should I be cool with her? I don't know if she likes me."

The Grammy winner continued, "It's always about breaking the ice and always having a conversation and catching somebody at the right time. We linked up and she's just such a good vibe."

In addition to Cardi B, Gwen Stefani and Kelsea Ballerini will share their mentors, their goals and how they achieved their biggest dreams.


With the 2021 Grammys less than a week away, it's safe to say Cardi B will be rooting for Megan Thee Stallion who is nominated for multiple awards including Best Rap Performance and Best New Artist.

"I always want to see her win and I think she feels the same way about me too," Cardi B explained. "And every single time I see her doing good, I just get so happy." 

Not bad coming from someone who made history at the 2019 Grammys by becoming the first female solo winner to take home Best Rap Album for Invasion of Privacy.
