Nicki Minaj sat down in her best government hooker garb for an interview on ABC’s Nightline last night. Of the many topics, including Nicki’s abusive father and her body, host Juju Chang brought up the many comparisons between Minaj and Lady Gaga. Nicki doesn’t see it.
Chang: Does that kind of comparison offend you?
Nicki: Offend me? No. Irks me? Yeah. First of all, I’m a rapper. First of all, I’m from Southside Jamaica, Queens. What are the similarities? Why don’t I turn the cameras around and ask you?
Chang: Just the wigs and the…
Nicki: Wigs? Every female in this game, EVERY female in this game wears wigs.
Chang: The over-the-top costuming...
Nicki: Over-the-top costumes….EHH, try again.
Chang: So it does make you mad!
Nicki: I mean, no because it’s getting tired now to me. In the beginning, I was like ‘Okay! It’s cool, ha-ha-ha! When they get to know me they’ll understand me.’ Gaga is a fantastic artist. You know, she’s paved her way. She’s opened her own lane, but I feel like I have my own lane, and we never cross…ever!
Yeah, okay girl.
