Nicki Covers New York Magazine
Nicki Minaj is on the cover of the latest The New York Times Magazine, and inside she talks about her beef with Miley and her boyfriend, Meek Mill’s, beef with Drake.
When asked if she “thrives on drama,” Nicki replied: “That’s disrespectful. Why would a grown-ass woman thrive off drama?
“That’s the typical thing that women do. What did you putting me down right there do for you? Women blame women for things that have nothing to do with them. I really want to know why — as a matter of fact, I don’t. Can we move on, do you have anything else to ask?”
Nicki called the writer “rude” and “a troublemaker,” and told her, “Do not speak to me like I’m stupid or beneath you in any way,” before the writer said, “I don’t care to speak to you anymore.”
Here are a few highlights before the interview was cut short:
On Miley Cyrus: “The fact that you feel upset about me speaking on something that affects black women makes me feel like you have some big balls. You’re in videos with black men, and you’re bringing out black women on your stages, but you don’t want to know how black women feel about something that’s so important? Come on, you can’t want the good without the bad. If you want to enjoy our culture and our lifestyle, bond with us, dance with us, have fun with us, twerk with us, rap with us, then you should also want to know what affects us, what is bothering us, what we feel is unfair to us. You shouldn’t not want to know that.”
On Lady Gaga comparisons: “I don’t even want to discuss that. That’s so old to me.”
On her relationships: “Since I was 15, I came out of one relationship and went into another relationship. In my relationships, I’ve been told, ‘You don’t have to work that much.’ But I can’t stop working, because it’s bigger than work to me. It’s having a purpose outside any man.”
On Meek Mill vs. Drake: “They’re men, grown-ass men. It’s between them. I hate it. It doesn’t make me feel good. You don’t ever want to choose sides between people you love. It’s ridiculous. I just want it to be over.” Source and Image
I’ve heard that she can be difficult during interviews. But damn, try being a little gracious for Pete’s sake. The interviewer was just asking a question that has before and was giving Nicki the opportunity to respond to her critics. She responded by being nasty. Next!
Azealia Banks Comes for Nicki
Azealia Banks, who can’t seem to stay off Twitter, came for fellow rapstress, Nicki Minaj over her comments about Miley Cirus.
Read the rest from the bottom up.
I think she just likes to fight and she likes to lose. Why else would she go in on someone who’ll most likely take the bait and then obliterate her?
