    @Kwayzee, It was amazing, also people on here can say how they don’t think Nicki is Relevant, or that shes declining, or that shes a nobody, BUT in my year or so of being on this site I notice every time theres a topic related to Nicki Minaj it instantly goes into “Most Read Stories of the week” just take a peek over there now, chances are you WILL see something related to Nicki Minaj. I’m just saying–the haters are helping her get attention.

    When they watch this they may even say its “Lies” knowing damn well they wern’t there in any of her situations so they don’t even know whats the truth or a lie.

    Damn. Didn’t realize how much of a boss Nicki was. She literally controls everything about her from music to wardrobe. That’s legit. I understand her even more now. She literally works hard to get was she has.

    I Told You Karruche Would Never Be Rihanna Reply:

    @wassup, Yeah but she’s a little too bossy though. I understand her work ethic and demand for executing her vision correctly – but she acts too much like a diva.

    Queen Latifah already made that milestone of the being the 1st female rapper from New York to have a perfume line and you are the beneficiary of that.

    The only difference is Queen Latifah doesn’t go around telling everybody that she’s the first female rapper to do something. You’re trying to own something that’s not yours simply because the person that it really belongs to doesn’t want to gloat like you.

    [Reply]

    NeutralPerson Reply:

    @Justine, That is correct. There have been a lot black people before her – even women. Looking at Hip Hop only we got Queen Latifah, Sean Combs, Nelly & Jay-Z. Noticed that comment too and just wondered why she feels the need to do everything “first” as a black female hip hop artist?

    Her fragrance sample should arrive at my desk this week, I’m curious to see how it smells like since I review celebrity fragrances a lot.

    [Reply]

    Justine Reply:

    @NeutralPerson, Well, I’ve smelled it at the perfume counter and please be honest in your critique. Most industry folks are afraid of Nicki so they lie about her music and performances. To me, the fragrance smells like bubblegum and has no womanly affect. The fragrance is definitely for the KIDS.

    GaGa is four years younger than Nicki but her fragrance is for WOMEN.

    I look forward to reading your critique.

    [Reply]

    NeutralPerson Reply:

    @Justine, I always try to be accurate. I don’t think that Pink Friday will be any different than most celeb launches. Lady Gaga’s scent is no different too, plus I can’t smell it very long. I wrote a very bad review about it. Still trying to be objective though.

    Why is she famous again?

    [Reply]

  14. NeutralPerson

    So seriously and honestly… after watching this, I don’t know why people are so concerned about her every move. Because if you cut it down to the basics, she is a major star for the current time (don’t know her future – as nobody does) that deals with the same “issues” that every major star deals with. As a person in the spotlight there is no other way than to go through this whole machinery as presented in this series. It’s ok for me to see how her work schedule looks like, but don’t see the need to make such a big deal out of it.

    This is my subjective point of view, I just don’t see or feel the “essence” of Nicki Minaj – I don’t “connect” with her. Maybe it’s because I think stars shouldn’t feel the need to show the world who they really are because they can’t show it to the world all their life and most importantly don’t need to anyway.

    [Reply]

    coolio Reply:

    @NeutralPerson, Yes, there’s no need for her to show us how busy she is. The problem I have with Nicki is not her music, but how she presents herself. I know she’s trying to be different, but do you really want young people to look at her and think, “Well, shit I need what she’s wearing” or “Damn, I need to make my skin lighter somehow so I can look like Nicki”. Just my opinion.

    [Reply]

    TeamMinajUSVI Reply:

    @coolio, ok first of all her outfit aint got nothing to do With her music.she can wear whatever she wants. If somebody wants to wear what she has their free to do so it’s their choice. she didn’t tell them to dress like her.

    [Reply]

    AllAmerykhanBoy Reply:

    @coolio, Ya’ll acting like being inspired to expand your wardrobe and wearing make up is such a bad thing. But let’s not forget she said in the View interview little kids should be parented by their parents not by Nicki Minaj so all that you just said is pointless.

    [Reply]

    AllAmerykhanBoy Reply:

    @NeutralPerson, Everyone knows that Nicki have a gay following and Roman is a gay boy who likes to speak his mind and don’t care what anyone thinks about him. There’s a connection between Roman with every gay, lesbian, bisexual child, teen out there and that’s what she saw and that’s why he was created. Martha is his mother if you saw the Grammy’s performance and video and understand the history behind Roman Holiday (via rapgenius) then you’ll see she’s that parent who feels that being gay is wrong and that Roman needs to be changed by priest. There goes Nicki again doing stuff for her fans.

  16. Trying to Like Her

    What did she do for black women that was so innovative again? I see Beyonce holding something more a door opener title than Nicki. Bey is a role model and even the president said that. Nicki…well, yea. You stans help me out, what has she done innovative and positive other than wear crazy wigs, weird clothes, and give schizophrenics a run for their money? “Still I Rise” showed potential, and the rest shows how it was wasted, in my opinion. I just wish she’d quit saying she did stuff for black girls when there’s so many black women before her, like, seriously, what she done?

    [Reply]

    wassup Reply:

    @Trying to Like Her, -__- labels were dropping female rappers & not putting enough of a budget to support them. B.E.T had actually skipped the category best female Hip-Hop artist for quite a time… this is all because FEMALE RAPPERS WERE NOT RELEVANT. Then comes Nicki & Boom! Not only did she bring Female Rappers back into the spotlight but she hit milestones none have reached before… 1st Female MC @ SuperBowl. Highest SNL ratings. 2nd best debut sales. 8 songs charting @ once on Billboard. Most singles from a female rap album on Billboard. Collabed with Jay/Kanye/Madonna/Christina/Britney/Usher with only 21/2 yrs out… the list goes on & on

    [Reply]

    wassup Reply:

    @wassup, All these feats & accomplishments and she still gets bashed by people on the daily. She’s proved to people she can go in on a verse & kill it and also make pop songs that can make a whole nation dance. At the end of the day, whether ppl like it or not, she brought something new to the table & revived an era to its fullest. Yes, Beyonce is a Great role model & extremely talented but Nicki is also empowering black women. The only black women this popular at the moment are bey, rih & nicki. Thats it. wish there was more, but there isnt. So till then, realize the fact that she’s doing positive things for black women.

    [Reply]

    Trying to Like Her Reply:

    @wassup, Er… I just don’t see it. It’s her music, it’s not… substantial. Pink Friday is better than Pink Friday: RR, but it seems like she took a step back. Again “Still I Rise” showed potential. When I think of Nicki, I just think of a person who could be a good rapper, but is just wasted potential. I can see her making rap popular again, but this whole “I did it for black women thing” just needs to stop -_- If she quit the weird voices and Roman/Martha crap and wigs and just showed us the real Onika and had deep songs–’cause ‘Freedom’ ain’t it for me–then maybe I could see what the Barbz was all jazzed about

    Nobody Reply:

    @Trying to Like Her, She doesn’t have to STOP DOING ANYTHING… That’s JUST HOW SHE IS and u CANT CHANGE THAT. It’s obvious she only makes music for her FANS since everyone else is just too basic to understand just a little bit of where shes coming from…………

    [Reply]

    wassup Reply:

    @Trying to Like Her, Haha. this just proves you are hating on her & not actually trying. Because your saying if the voices/accents went away then she’d be a role model… she would still have the same accomplishments & feats with or without roman/martha. At the end of the day shes doing Sh** for black females, but she cant please everyone all at once. No one can. So if you cant deal with it, just ignore it. Dnt try to criticize it & keep it going.

    @TMOE, Nicki DID NOT make Gabby RELEVANT. Alicia was already rooting for HER. Nicki was a FEATURE on a POWERFUL song. That has NO say in Nicki calling the shots. STOP REACHING.

    TMOE Reply:

    @TMOE, Alicia was rooting for her, as was Nicki and everyone else. Why gabby thou? If Nicki had never mentioned her the song then where the fuck would Alicia get the idea. if Nicki was irrelevant why didint Alicia perform it by herself? She has THREE versions of the song.

  17. yougotmyrespect

    after watching this tonight.. i have a new perspective of nicki minaj. i never knew she handled everything from her wadrobe, to music, and to her videos. she is a boss and i respect that.

    and as for the milestone she talks about for black women. i agree. last person to do these things was 10 years ago and she giving them a chance to come back because a before there was nicki minaj, female rappers were almost gone. but she opened the doors back up for them just like they did for her. so #Respect to you miss minaj

    p.s
    do a song with missy, kim, eve, or latifah and i’ll respect you so much more!

    TMOE Reply:

    @Justine, Just because you don’t like someone, you dont respect someone? Has she done anything directly towards you? No. All she asks for is respect. You all don’t give her that nor credit. You all act like she just sits down on her ass all day. The first Black female (Not including Mariah) to EVER judge American Idol. EVER. And if she wasn’t so hot, Why do all these artists want her on THEIR songs. Paying 150k for a verse. it’s because she sells records that ppl ENJOY

    @Nobody, There’s a big difference between being assertive and being a bitch and downtalking people. She is very insecure and it shows and thats why she is always talking about what she’s done every fucking song she puts out. She has no substance and won’t last long.

    Rapping is a genre created by black culture. There are always black female rappers doing their thing. Nicki may have made the industry more interested in looking their way but in no way did she birth them. They were not created due to her. Maybe Iggy took advantage of Nicki’s white rapping style and fanbase but the black female rappers are always here.

She is about her business and branding herself and knows what she wants and doesn’t accept failure . I feel like people on this post just want to throw their 2 cent in and bash on Nicki . But truth be told some of yall like Nicki on the low and just hate to admit because if you really couldn’t stand her you wouldn’t e checking in on her.
