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

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.
