Saweetie apologized for causing an uproar online with her controversial comments about Hermès Birkin bags, insisting they "symbolize a gift of value" in a relationship.

Last week, the "Icy Grl" rapper made blog headlines after her boyfriend, rapper Quavo gifted her with a Birkin in honor of the success of her new single "Back to the Streets."

She took to Instagram Live to tell her fans, "If he not getting you a Birkin, if he not paying for your bills, then throw that n***a back to the streets, OK?"

Saweetie immediately came under fire for her comments. Sensible women called out the 26-year-old for putting material objects above healthy relationships.

In a new interview, Saweetie said her comment shouldn't be taken seriously and that she's "an entertainer and I come to entertain."

Saweetie compared herself to rap mogul Jay Z: "So that was an entertaining comment. Like Jay Z says at the end of "Ignorant S**t," he goes, 'It's only entertainment,' and then he does this little evil laugh," Saweetie told Power 106 Los Angeles with Bryhana.

"I was having a good time, promoting 'Back to the Streets.' And, you know, I'm popping my s–t for my girls."

But she continued to insist that Birkin handbags, which retail for over $20,000, make a woman feel valued. "I feel like a Birkin symbolizes a gift of value," she said.

She continued:

"But what comes along with being valued? It comes with a healthy relationship. It comes with communication. It comes with getting gifts. It comes with being spoiled, because at the end of the day, we create life ... Women are magical creatures and we deserve to be treated like a queen. So that's what I meant by that statement."

The rapper, real name Diamonte Quiava Valentin Harper, added:

"A Birkin is symbolic. Get her a purse, get her some jewelry - of course, according to your tax bracket. I don't want you to clean out your savings to try to keep up with social media or society... It was a quick comment that represents how I feel women should be treated, which is showered with gifts, OK?"

Rapper Saweetie is happy that she decided to be more open about her relationship with Migos rapper Quavo.

The couple's relationship has endured during the coronavirus pandemic that split up other famous couples, including Quavo's bandmate, Offset's marriage to rapper Cardi B.

Quavo and Saweetie have dated for two years but, in the beginning, she admits there were "a lot of false narratives that kind of surrounded our love," mainly because "we're not so transparent and we don't share everything".

In the beginning, some gossipmongers believed Saweetie was Quavo's beard.

"It's easy for people to put a narrative or a story behind something," she tells Entertainment Tonight. "And then other people run with it because they don't understand.

"When they don't understand, you try to make yourself understand, and that's when all these rumors started circulating," adds the "Icy Girl" rapper.

Many fans doubted the unlikely couple would stay together for 6 months much less 2 years.

The 27-year-old Cancer goes on to say she's happy that her followers now understand and "admire" their relationship: "I think what they admire the most is that they were wrong."

"I think they love it because I think they had an 'a-ha' moment where there's like, 'Damn… this is really genuine'," she shared.

Saweetie thinks fans admire her relationship because they can relate to it.

"With anything, when you falsely judge something and then you figure out it's better than what you expected, I feel like it creates some sort of like connection to it," she said.

Question: Did you think Quavo and Saweetie would last this long?

Migos rapper Quavo Huncho complimented his longtime girlfriend Saweetie in a recent interview.

Quavo, real name Quavious Marshall, seemed to uplift his rapper girlfriend while dragging bandmate Offset's wife, Cardi B.

Quavo hinted that Cardi's stripper past doesn't make her as wholesome as his girl. He noted that Saweetie, real name Diamonte Harper, is a good, clean, wholesome college grad who never worked the pole.

The proud rap artist told Page Six: "I think [Saweetie]'s bringing something very special to the game. She speaks for the pretty college girls that are taking the regular route. You don't have to be a stripper, you don't have to be a bartender, you don't have to take the Instagram model route."

He added: "I feel like she's speaking for those nice, clean teenage girls who listen to their parents and go to school."

Offset is just a kid at heart. His birthday cake was video game-inspired.

In a video clip shared to her Instagram stories on Saturday, Dec. 14, the "Bodak Yellow" rapper teased her man before joking: "You got every car. You got every jewelry. You got everything. You got every shoe. You know what I'm saying. What else can I give somebody that got everything?" she asked before giving her husband a hint: "The fridge!"

In a refrigerator behind Offset, the rapper piled stacks of money, which the "I Like It" star said was $500,000. Cardi knows how to keep her cheating husband happy.

"Happy birthday, and don't expect no Christmas gift from me. Ain't no Christmas gift. Only for the kids." Cardi quipped, before telling her husband she loves him.

Later in the evening, Cardi uploaded more clips of the celebrations, including strippers giving her man lap dances, and a clip of him feasting on fried chicken sandwiches from Popeyes.

Colin Kaepernick is in Atlanta preparing for his big workout for the NFL on Saturday. 13 NFL teams have confirmed their scouts will attend the workout at the Atlanta Falcons training facility.

NFL wannabes, such as Migos rapper Quavo Huncho, pictured left, reportedly reached out to Kaepernick in hopes of participating in the workout.

Unemployed wide receiver Antonio Brown (pictured) is also eager to catch passes from Kaepernick during Saturday's workout.

Brown, 31, was sent packing by the New England Patriots after several women accused him of sexual misconduct.

The workout was reportedly arranged by rapper Jay-Z, the NFL's social justice consultant and halftime entertainment coordinator.

ESPN's Josina Anderson said the teams she spoke with were unaware of the workout until Kaepernick tweeted about it earlier this week.

A memo from the NFL left teams scrambling to rearrange their schedules at short notice.

13 teams, including the Falcons, Browns, Dolphins, Lions and Giants, confirmed their attendance. But one team that has no plans to send a scout is the Dallas Cowboys.

When asked by 105.3FM the Fan if the Cowboys were sending a scout, Cowboys owner Jerry Jones made it clear the Cowboys wanted nothing to do with Kaepernick.

"That's not correct," said Jones, who is close friends with President Trump. "We're not going to have anybody there."

The NFL will provide tapes of Kaepernick's workout and interview to all 32 teams. Jones conceded that his scouts may look at the tapes if necessary. "We'll look at the tape if we need information there."

Kaepernick last played in an NFL game in 2016. No other team showed interest in him after he opted out of renewing his contract with the San Francisco 49ers.

Insiders say Kaepernick's inflated ego will not allow him to settle for a backup quarterback spot.
