Sia Apologises After Appearing To Mix Up Nicki Minaj And Cardi B
Singer Sia has apologised after seemingly mistaking a photo of Nicki Minaj for rapper Cardi B.
The 44-year-old said she was left feeling like a 'buffoon' as fans quickly pointed out her mistake.
The confusion happened after someone tweeted Sia a photo of Minaj asking if she would ever do a song with her.
In response, Sia wrote: "I love @iamcardib and although this isn't a collaboration, I would love collab with her one day."
It wasn't long before the error was spotted and caused a bit of a backlash with one fan tweeting: "Girl move that hair out yo face AND LOOK." While another said: "Sia girl you need to delete I'm not playing."
Shortly after #Siaisoverparty started to trend.

The outlet reports that Sia tweeted: "Hey @iamcardib @NICKIMINAJ you aren't thinking about a feud right now are you? We are focused on the problem of systemic racism."
Another tweet that has also since been deleted, read: "I don't give a s*** about feuds, George Floyd was f***ing murdered. Breonna Taylor. Murdered. Come on let's rise in unity.
"You think @iamcardib and Nikki [sic] are so petty that they would want you focusing on a silly feud instead of REAL NEWS."
Sia then posted an apology after seemingly realising her mistake, saying she had 'misunderstood'.
In a post she wrote: "I totally misunderstood a tweet earlier that has resulted in me making a buffoon out of myself. Sorry @NICKIMINAJ and @iamcardib if you hear about it. Can I just like you both?"
I totally misunderstood a tweet earlier that has resulted in me making a buffoon out of myself.
Sorry @NICKIMINAJ and @iamcardib if you hear about it.
Can I just like you both?

But not everyone is happy with the apology, with one person replying to the tweet: "Don't try to police black women ever again; I don't care if they were fighting it tooth and nail. It will never be your place as a white person."
While a second, much more blunt, follower said: "Sia sweetie... shut up."
Neither Minaj or Cardi have responded to the various tweets the Aussie singer posted.
