    @Malibu Barbie : Notorious K.I.M edition, @Oonthada, Ignorant ass American! She is dressed in a Japanese street style called Harajuku from the surgical mask, ice cream, bows, hair, and doll. It has been around before Lady Gaga. Gwen Stefani use to mention a lot. She has been calling herself the Harajuku Barbie for over 2 years, and the first time she goes into the full thing you guys say Gaga. Gaga was wearing a suit tonight, now every guy out there is copying her. Lady Gaga isn’t the original of most of the shit she does, how could anyone copy her. Lady Gaga goes back to 80′s pop stars that she lists as inspirations and literally copies them, but you guys just scream original because your ignorant asses don’t know anything unless it’s shown to you on T.V. At least Nicki is doing a relevant fashion style and you guys say she’s coping somebody else. Just type in one word Harajuku and feel like the fucking idiot you are.

    @StarsRblind, at the end of the day she tried too hard, she went wide left and #FAIL again. looking like a danm fool standing next to Beyonce, and it amaze me how you went out of your way to show how lady gaga is unoriginal but if you would take that same energy to research how much nicki copied off Lil kim, you would see how much she is unoriginalas well. Harajuku or not, the shit was a fashion disaster.

    @No1else, The fact that it is so specific to the Harajuku style show that she’s not copying anyone, except maybe Harajuku girls. To say she looked a mess is to say Harajuku style looks a mess because everything about that outfit wan undisputedly Harajuku. It’s so suppose to be fun and cartoony which matches her personality. She was carrying a Teddy bear and wearing flats, Lil Kim had her breast out once, and Lady Gaga came in a egg once and usually wears 8 inch heels. Who’s trying too hard? It’s pop culture.

    @StarsRblind, At the end of the day nicki minaj looked like at hot mess #SIMPLE idc who she was trying to be, she looked like a fool doing it, no dispute in that. What seperates nicki from kim n gaga is they have fashion in their blood. when lil kim wore that outfit, she did it with NO EFFORT everyone new she wasnt a character that night, it was her unique style. Being an fashion icon is not just putting on crazy close to stand out but to make it unique. THATS NOT NICKI its a person in costume.

    @ed, Harajuku is the style dumbass. She’s not saying that she stole Gwen’s look. It’s a fashion style that her and Gwen use. Uncultured and stupid = ignorant fuck.

  22. Fred S.

    I think you all fail to realize what she is really trying to do. I “THINK” she has been really inspired by Magna and the Asia culture as a whole. For those of you who do not know what Mangna is google it. The art is off the chain! She is also trying to get the most attention. That is her mission. Get noticed, get my name circulating and be a bad bitch while doing it! She may be a bit desperate and I am not disagreeing with that. I just wanted to point out the business stand point. I actually think she looks hot!!! Lastly, if Nicki can steal ideas from Lady GaGa…so be it. Hell, Caucaian Americans have been stealing from Afrikan American (BLAKK’s)since music began, so…one for us…lol I am not a racist, but I am a realest! Good day people! Bless up!

  28. Whooaa

    Get the fuck outta here with the “she tryna copy Kim” shit. Kim would NEVER wear this and you KNOW it. She’s not trying to copy Gwen either. Just because both of them admire the asian/japanese culture and fashion doesn’t mean Nicki is copying Gwen Stefani. Ffs. If anything she is staying true to herself by wearing what she loves and admires. Nicki is the HARAJUKU Barbie. She is living up to her reputation for being a HARAJUKU Barbie. Sit your hating ass DOWN.

    @Whooaa, Bitch plz, she copy everybody from the industry and you still trynna defend her. talkin bout “she just trying to be herself”, no…… she was trying wwwaaaayyyyy too hard, trying to make an Epic fashion statement(lil kim 1999 outfit) and turned out being an Epic fail #DEAL

    [Reply]

    Whooaa Reply:

    @No1else, LOL. She doesn’t copy from EVERYONE in the industry, love. I defend her because I am fan of hers. Now I wouldn’t make up some bullshit if I didn’t believe in it. I have been a fan of hers for quite a few years now and she has always had that childish side to her. And the Harajuku style reflects that perfectly, that’s why she LOVES the Japanese/Tokyo culture. Nicki did an interview after the VMA’S and she explained her long-lasting love for their culture, so I shall NOT #DEAL =)

    No1else Reply:

    @Whooaa, And you believed that shit? Oh wait just like when you believed she was 26yrs old huh? Or how about when she denied being in that fight with her bf(which she denied they was together in the first place) she is a character.
