Nicki Minaj on Lady Gaga: ‘We Are in Completely Different Lanes’

Nicki Minaj

Nicki Minaj has had enough of the Lady Gaga comparisons. During her sit-down with Juju Chang on ABC’s “Nightline,” the platinum rap diva was asked whether she is offended by comparisons to her pop counterpart.

“Offend me? No. Irks me? Yeah,” responded Nicki. “Because we are in completely different lanes.”

She explained herself further. “First of all, I’m a rapper. First of all, I’m from Southside Jamaica, Queens, and I could say some really crazy lyrics right now, but I won’t.”

The “Starships” hitmaker turned the tables on the reporter, asking her what similarities she sees. Chang likened her wigs and eccentric costumes to Gaga.

“Every female in this game wears wigs,” Nicki fired back. “Over the top costumes? Eeh, try again.”

The full interview airs tonight on “Nightline.” Watch a sneak peek below.

    @HEY RAP-UP, Yeah and GaGa is BURSTING with creativity. Which is why she’s recycling the early 90s Accept yourself *cough* Express Yourself*cough* Madonna. Don’t start.

    That’s why Haus of GaGa, Redone, Laurie Ann Gibson & the like are just hangers ons who do nothing but shadow GaGa. They offer no creative input *sarcasm*

    Please. CHILLDAFUCKOUT Nicki or GaGa ain’t doing nothing Drag Queens & avant garde hipsters have been doing for DECADES. Madonna borrowed from the Gays GaGa & Minaj rip thr gays off blantantly. GaGa persona is based on a drag queen she used to do shows with & Roman Zolanski is a gay boy. Case closed.

    [Reply]

    Really? Reply:

    @Trinity, True. Nothing is new under the sun, so why is nicki upset that ppl see a resemblance between her and gaga? Why doesnt she just admit that she was influenced by gaga & lil kim like the way gaga admitted she was influenced by madonna & grace jones. The “new nicki” is a product of lady gaga’s influence. I’m sorry it’s obvious. Look at nicki 2 years ago and look at her now? She went from a sexy hood rapper to a costumed pop singer. If you don’t think gaga’s success during that time has impacted nicki’s style you’re delusional.

    I think Nicki is correct in that they are each in their own lane. But in my opinion, I feel like Lady Gaga made it normal for every female in the game to wear wigs and dress in eccentric costumes. I mean not that Gaga was the first one to do so…I’m just saying I feel like she made it more mainstream. After she was doing it, I noticed that Rihanna, Katy Perry, and Nicki started doing the same thing. Now haters please calm down, I’m a fan of Nicki and all music, really. I’m just stating my opinion.

Y y’all bitches act like nicki need to pray to this bitches as if they gave her life themselves is ridiculous! I don’t normally ride for celebs this hard but the hate towards nicki is seriously over the top and full of sh-t. Let’s be real, the main reason u hate nicki is because she winning and ur favs ain’t had a hit since bill Clinton was president!

    TJ Reply:

    @renny, Nicki rapped on at least 15/22 tracks which is more then 1/2. In Nicki’s entire career shes made 8 pop songs. Nicki’s catalog has over 200 songs but you’re saying those 8 make her pop? So Kanye is pop for doing “808′s and heartbreak”? “Rebirth” made Wayne just “Rock”? The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill makes her just R&B? Based on your logic that’s what you’re saying & that’s ignorant AF. Until Nicki’s catalog consists of more pop than rap, she is a RAPPER.

  14. shes right

    She’s an entrepreneur most of all. She does several genres, why box her? On another note:
    Danity Kane, Lil’Kim, Jojo worked with Laurieann BEFORE Lady Gaga and those choreographies were big too. Katy Perry worked with Laurieann for California Girls after Gaga, why isn’t she getting dirt, too? NOT THAT SHE SHOULD. And Nicki only worked with Gibson for Roman Holiday, which was a live performance. RedOne? He’s been around 2001 working with artists and bands like A*Teens, RBD, Kat de Luna, The Cheetah Girls, Akon and Enrique Iglesias BEFORE Lady Gaga did. Nobody’s copying anybody, he’s just good to work with and creates major hits. In the PF:RR album there are(according to me I’m not a music critic) around 7 RAP TRACKS, 1 Pop/rap track, 5 pop tracks, 3 dance tracks, 3 R&B tracks, and 2 ballads, and the rest I don’t know how to classify. She needs to please her pop fans, rap fans and dance music fans. It’s not easy, and that’s why she’s getting a lot of criticism. Eccentric outfits? Lady Gaga isn’t the first one, not even in the music industry look up Grace Jones, there is Vivienne Westwood she’s a fashion designer she dresses crazy too. Look up before starting to talk and even after listening you don’t like it then SAY THAT I don’t like it and don’t listen to it. No need to go: this shit is useless, she’s a phony, this is crap because it’ll create problems cause we’re all pretty brave through the internet. Thank you and have a good day/night.

    funny how now she is accused of copying gaga but last year she was coping lil kim…. people really need 2 start noticing how nicki steals her style and thinks its ok…. its not!!! She copied kim and was very rude to her calling her a has been. Any person older should be offended by that… and now she is sayin she don’t copy gaga which is a lie…. why did nicki have big eyes in stupid hoe video when gaga started that… nicki is not original… I won’t say she is not talented…. but nici should really start admitting kim and gagas influence they had on her…. nicki is sooo fake… this is why I don’t like her….. atleast kim went 2 jail 4 not snitching….what has nicki done???

    [Reply]

    Kevin Reply:

    @damananuluv, No, the issue is why is she always being accused of copying someone? The reviews for PFRR mentioned the names of so many other artists, I forgot which album they were reviewing. Nicki is a copycat and the world now knows. But what Chang didn’t know, was that Nicki is a sociopath liar.

    Let’s get this str8…. People accuse gaga of copying Madonna, people accuse nicki of not praying to Kim as her lord and savior, and everyone act like everyone out now is 100% original and started everything they do now. Please, nothing is new! Wigs existed before Kim, people wore crazy customs before gaga, and the woman race existed before either of them were born. Damn, if u don’t like nicki fine but stop acting like the chick gotta buy everyone before her a house! Google search nicki and u will find she gave everyone who influenced her a shout out but as soon as she blew up, bitches got jealous. Plus she must be doing something right cuz she number 1 across the world, singles top 5, and she don’t need to sell her album for 99cents to win! On top of that rolling stone gave her album 4/5 rating! Haters stay mad until ur favs make a comeback and from the looks of it… U might be mad for a while.

Ms Gibson has also wanted with many others before gaga even came on the scene so nicki shouldn’t work with one of the best choreographers because this bitch gaga worked with her first?? Gtfoh! Gibson didn’t make her name off gaga, gaga made her name of Gibson.Ur reasons for hating nicki r weak. Just admit she winning and move on! Gaga isn’t even original her damn self!

And RedOne is NOT Gaga’s producer, just because he produced some of her biggest hits doesn’t make him her producer. He’s also produced big hits for J.Lo as well. And do you remember Kat DeLuna? He produced about 15 songs for her before Gaga was even heard of. Get your facts straight. And even if Nicki was copying Lady Gaga, so what? Gaga is the biggest imitator of Madonna.

Nicki isn’t in the middle and she damn sure ain’t in the front. Would you like to no why? BECAUSE SHE’S DOING SOMETHING THATS ALREADY BEEN DONE. She isn’t creative AT ALL! Name something she’s done that was creative that no one else has done? Nicki is in a class sitting her happy ass right behind Lil Kim and Lady Gaga, because that’s who she’s trying to be like. : ) #FaceIt

  26. A FAN BUT NO STAN

    nothings wrong with branching out musicaly but nicki straight up alienated her CORE FAN BASE. she says fuck new york but the world wouldnt know who she was is hardcore hip hop fans was checkin for hewr and spreading the word. im wanna nickis biggest fans and im from queens so haters pull ya head out ya ass and listen. why did this album drop in overseas UK FIRST? BECUZ that album was made for that audience.shes gonna sell like crazy (although projections seem to point out she will do significantly less then her debut album) but at the price of her core fans feeling they play second fiddle to $$$$$. is there rap on the album? YEA. IS IT GOOd? some of it( hence the overload of features).not to mention lines that just dont make sense. you dont half ass the songs that support your core,especially when they serve as the minority to a slew of pop and ballads. i happen to love pop. but in all our love for nicki me included we have all over looked this one this .nicki minaj cannot sing!!!! if you have to say ‘and i aint hit that note but…’ theres a real problem. maybe yes men? again im a huge fan and im sure nicki wll once again return to prominence and start killin shit and even her pop stuff will get better, hopefully chalk this up to sophmore jinx.make excuses and play dumb if yall want but fans and nicki herself (again including ME)know that this is not her best effort and behind all that strong exxterior ….nicki knows she fucked up

    Nicki can’t even breathe because somebody did it first. Please, Gaga wasn’t the first to wear wigs and certainly not the last. Before Gaga came Madonna, Roisin, Cyndi Lauper, Grace Jones. And after Gaga, will come many more. And after Nicki, there will come many more. Let Nicki do her thing, stop hating on her because she reached success. Stop trying to bring her down.

    Wasn’t she wearing wigs before Lady Gaga, Katy Perry and Rihanna? She was wearing wigs and weaves during her come up days. I’m surprised no one mentions when Lady Gaga wears colored wigs that she looks like Nicki. The over the top costumes is something that’s very similar between them but so what? As long as she’s not wearing meat dresses and pearls on her face like Gaga, I don’t see what the big deal is. Nicki classifies herself as a barbie, and I’m sure the costumes is part of her whole gimmick. The wigs comparison is just dumb because Gaga JUST start wearing wigs in 2011.

    @Anthony, look bitch, Gaga started wearing wigs in 2011 because her fucking hair was falling out from dyeing it. Your little bitchy argument is invalid. Reductive hoe.

    @Gage, That’s your argument? That she started wearing wigs in 2011 because her hair was falling out from dye? You just proved my point. All of those curse words for nothing. And lol I bet you didn’t know what ‘reductive’ meant until Madonna called Gaga reductive…which is exactly what Gaga is…reductive. Poor thing.

    Why does there always need to be comparisons? Its just fucking clothes, and looks. So the fuck what. Just enjoy the fucking music. Jesus fucking christ, everyone just needs to criticize? I personally, like both Gaga AND Nicki, and i don’t believe anyone copies another. Nickis clothes come from her stylist. What the fuck makes you think she sits there, watching Gaga and saying “Yeah, I’m totally wearing that tomorrow.” Shut the fuck up, ignorant bitches.

    @BEDSTUYFLY, idiot.. she did say she was honored(in a previous interview). She said “…I’m glad they are comparing me to someon that is winning…”.. So come right or dont come at all.. Nicki was right to shut this lady down.. Nicki’s been wearing wigs. Before she was even mainstream.. before Gaga, and Katy Perry was wearing wigs..it’s annoyingto have someone say everyday you are a Lady Gaga clone. Lady Gaga is a Madonna clone, but no one seems to mention that.. At the end of the day Nicki can walk slow and they’ll say Nicki copied the snail..

    Anthony Reply:

    @what, She actually said that she doesn’t mind being compared to Gaga because Gaga is winning and she likes being compared to a winner. But it’s understandable that she’s annoyed. No one likes being compared to anyone when they’re trying to create their own image. Only people with common sense will see that. Would you want to be compared to Nicki Minaj if you were trying to become a female rapper trying to make a name for yourself? No. Use your common sense.

    Nicki rapped on at least 15/22 tracks which is more then 1/2. In Nicki’s entire career shes made 8 pop songs. Nicki’s catalog has over 200 songs but you’re saying those 8 make her pop? So Kanye is pop for doing “808′s and heartbreak”? “Rebirth” made Wayne just “Rock”? The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill makes her just R&B? Based on your logic that’s what you’re saying & that’s ignorant AF. Until Nicki’s catalog consists of more pop than rap, she is a RAPPER

    No, Nicki. Respond logically to her observation of the “over the top” costumes that you wear that are similar to Lady Gaga. And the male alter-ego that you created immediately after Gaga did it. There is not one original bone in this girl’s body. If the pop trend of the moment was wearing spaceship sunglasses, she’d have the biggest pair in the world. STOP IT NICKI.

    Nicki is probably pissed that they think a white woman started everything and she was never her influence. The two of them started with the costumes around the same time. I remember Nicki doing the costumes in her mixtape days. Nicki had OTHER influences that she has named and given props too. She went to theater school so that could explain her fascination with the costumes and imagery. Lady Gaga and her are peers and Lady gaga def didnt start any of that. I would get pissed too if people were acting like I am influenced by somebody I’m not.

    It’s obviously painfull that Nicki doesn’t know who she is. She’s trying to justify her emulating & copying off ppl (Lil Kim, Gaga, etc, etc). When is she gonna start talking about bleaching her skin. Wasn’t she a brown skin chick at one time? Now she’s walking around looking like a white woman. Self hatred to the fullest.
