Nicki Minaj has encountered unfavourable comparisons to Lil Kim since her debut but there is another woman to whom her outlandish style has drawn parallels. During her appearance on ‘Nightline’ last evening, Minaj was asked to address claims that she imitates Lady Gaga and that sparked serious annoyance from the rapper.
Minaj snapped that she is “tired” of the comparisons to Gaga because they are in “different lanes” and that their whacky costumes have nothing in common. In fact, it was clear that Minaj wasn’t pleased with the question at all as her response was quite defensive.
Other topics discussed during Minaj’s ‘Nightline’ appearance were her troubling childhood, her influence on young fans and sexism in the music industry. Watch the full interview below:
