    Nicki Minaj beams in The Guardian.

    Nicki Minaj will say anything to convince people that she isn’t copying Lady Gaga. During her interview on ‘Nightline’ earlier this month, the agitated rapper declared that she is in a completely different lane from her peer. However, as the comparisons continued, Minaj adopted a new approach to deflect the imitation claims: suggesting racism.

    When reporter Simon Hattenstone of The Guardian stated that Minaj’s appearance on the cover of her ‘Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded’ album looked similar to Gaga, Minaj responded with the following statement:

    “You think that looks like Gaga? Absolutely not. I have no idea what you’re talking about… Maybe little black kids shouldn’t wear blond hair?”

    Hattenstone is so ignorant. Minaj doesn’t look like Gaga; she is channeling Ke$ha! Didn’t he see Minaj’s ‘Starships’ video? Maybe little black kids should be more original.

      This woman is so annoying. Its shocking what money and success does to people. Her ego is bigger than her butt.
      Get over yourself and come back with a better album please smh.

      Isn’t Nicki the one always dissing black women in her songs? “Nappy headed hoes…You need a perminator”

    • Naudisweet(Xtina Stan)

      Not really into her music, but I’ve been happy to see a fellow West Indian reach the level of success that she has. However lately she’s seems to be her own worst enemy…her actions and statements are turning people off. Get it together girl!!!

    • Girrrl

      Little black girls shouldn’t wear blonde hair! Nicki needs to quit acting like she doesn’t want to be white especially since she bleaches and says racist stuff towards black women. She needs to fall on a bed of swords.

    • Ugh

      I see Nicki, i see Lady Gaga. Girl you need more people

    • Tia

      There have been comparisons of artists since the begining of time, get over youself.Do you [when you decide your direction] and your uniqueness will separate you from the rest.

    • She’s such a pressed hoe… no of course you don’t look like Gaga when you’re airbrushed lighter than her with a blonde wig and some bullshit outfit…

    • Aye Britt

      We’re out here battling real racism and stereotypes in hoodies and this bitch wanna suggest people are racist because of Lady GaGa comparisons? Onika, I know—i hope u are educated. Maybe u should look at the definition of racism before u go accusing people of it. This is the problem with our people…we’re always yelling racism at everything. It’s not racism, its stupidity by you onika. You tried to be lady Gaga and u failed now DEAL! YOU NEED MORE PEOPLE Ms. maraj

      This is why we will never prosper as a people, using the race card in the most inappropriate situations in which race is a non factor. She knows good well that she is imitating Gaga (and Ke$ha) and she’s mad because she’s getting called out on it. Nicki is acting so unblessed.

    • mmmh errr

      NO NICKI!!! LITTLE BLACK KIDS SHOULDN’T WEAR BLOND LACE WIGS!! NO.. I M GLAD YOU FINALLY CAME TO THAT CONCLUSION.. AND DO NOT PULL THE RACE CARDS..YOU BEEN DISSING US “NAPPY HEADED HOES” FOR SO LONG.. LET ME JUST GRAB SOME POPCORN WHILE YOU EXPLAIN YOUR MANY CHANNELLINGS ON YOUR OWN.. BUT COMPARING YOU TO GAGA IS UNJUST I AGREE… GAGA SEEM TO HAVE SOME THINKING AND MEANING BEHIND HER WACKY COSTUME… YOU .. YOU RE JUST TIPPY TOING IN TOTAL DARKNESS… #NOSHADE I M SORRY I SOUND LIKE I M SCREAMING CAUSE I M NOT LOL

    • Hi

      The day her irrelevancy begins is the day the music industry becomes a better place

    • LauraDior

      But isn’t Nicki a black 30-year-old women using lines like, “You Nappy Headed Hoes” in her songs, but she stills want to use the race card?? And NO, black little girls, black teen girls and grown black women shouldn’t be bleaching their hair blonde or their skin like Nicki or any other sellout music entertainer, because unlike most black women celebrties, black women should be proud to be black PERIOD! I’m not even black and I’m saying that! (I’m Brazilian) Nicki, get you’re damn life and sit down somewhere!!

    • Mmm

      @laurdior Brazilian is not race.

    • Mmm

      Nicki, why would’t they compare you to Gaga? When it’s clear to see you regularly don white women drag, in real life and on your cd cover. Doesn’t she have dougla heritage? So, I’m not surprised really.

    • I just can’t lol

    • LauraDior

      @Mmm

      Like I don’t know that. There’s Portuguese Brazilians, Afro- Brazilians, and Latin Brazilians. I should know since I was born and raised in Brazil. Since I HAVE to be more specific I’m a Portuguese and Latin Brazilian .

    • lmfao trent “maybe little black kids should be more original”

    • this whole article is stupid…nicki is just digging a larger hole for herself and clearly, at this point, people on the ‘non-urban’ side of things are just picking fun at her. she needs to realize that she’s being laughed at and not with…this is sad. i had hope for her, i did…

    • Mike

      The blonde hair has nothing to do with the comparisons.

    • Sunshine

      LOL!!! Dear Nicki, Please Shut Up. Sincerely a former fan/supporter.

      1st all…… “maybe black kids shouldn’t wear blonde wigs?”
      Umm….maybe they shouldn’t ! lol There are other ways to be Creative without wearing Blonde Wigs Nicki! Smh She makes herself sound really damn Goofy! She isn’t stupid which is why It’s so annoying that she does and says this stuff.

    • Jay

      This bitch is REALLY starting to irk me. She’s so arrogant and defensive for some reason.

    • bionic

      most of us complain about how artist do their shit , and the comments they make { if most of us were in there sitituation we would probaly do and say the same things } ……

    • Mmm

      @lauradior if you knew it then it would have made sense to add your race not ethnicity. Yes, I know there’s black, mixed, indiginou, white Brazilians.

    • olly

      I understand her fraustrations, Gaga did not invent avant garde and aside from the bright colours her fashion is completely distinct from Kesha, Kesha actally understands whats she doing. Nicki just weears random shizz to stand out. People just have narrow minds when it comes to comparing fashion.

    • yall some haterz

    • megan

      hiiii im a nicki minaj fan a nicki iz here own person a STOP HATEN PLZ LIKE gosh an wen nicki say “All you nappy headed h**s nd a permenator” she tlkin to does other female rappers out dere tryin get at her dats it she aint tryin diss blk women nor children an she aint copying no1 an blk people can wear blond wigs the reason why everyone dissin her is because ya’ll dont have wat she have a yu wish you did ***PERIOD***

    • blackfrench

      if she is so proud to be black why she cleared her skin

    • JOCELLE

      Idiot.
      Let’s not forget for one second that she’s 30.
      Not a Little Kid.

      the point being made was Gaga Came out with the unnatural Crazy Ass Wig Thing. It was kinda her Gimmick while Nicki was still on Kim’s Beats with her long dark curly hair Hip-Hop YMCM Hoe Sh*t. The question is, why Nicki had to Hop on Gaga’s Band wagon.

      Because she was bored being Kim and decided it was easier to get away with do Electric Crack music imitating Gaga, and blaming any comparisons on Racism.

    • mobwife

      Hell Man Caca isn’t original…paging MADONNA come get this chick! LOL… I don’t care for Nicki but even I am tired of folks trying to say ppl are coping a cheap clone like Gaga!

    • yeabilo

      If ppl think she copys from Lady gaga, then it comes true. It doesn’t matter is it fact or not… the society always work like this.
