what is nicki minaj saying about kanye west?
Nicki Minaj, who has collaborated with Kanye West in the past, has some issues with the rapper’s 2005 track “Gold Digger.” Minaj is DISTURBED by West rapping that once men become successful that they leave their woman for a white girl. – We all heard that song and line before rite?
In an interview with Marie Claire magazine, Nicki said of Kanye’s song, “I’m so tired of black women feeling that when our men get rich, they’re going to leave them for a woman of a different race. It wasn’t funny when Kanye said, ‘When he get on, he’ll leave your ass for a white girl’ — and Kanye happens to be with a white girl now. It wasn’t funny when he said it; it was the f***ing truth.”
Minaj discussed the double standards in Hollywood as well as women trying to marry for money. The “Anaconda” rapper feels women should try and make it financially on their own.
The rapper, who is worth close to $70 million, stated, “Nowadays, I feel like [young women] see marrying into money — I think that’s a big thing now. I don’t want that to be a woman’s goal in life.”
The 33-year-old rapper is trying to inspire women to fend for themselves. Nicki explained, “I want your goal in life to be to become an entrepreneur, a rich woman, a career-driven woman. You have to be able to know that you need no man on this planet at all, period, and he should feel that, because when a man feels that you need him, he acts differently.”
We have no clue if Nicki isn’t a fan of Kim Kardashian, but she also brought up her name in another part of the Marie Claire interview.
Minaj was discussing the double standards that women of color face these days, using Kardashian and an example. She stated, “When Kim Kardashian’s naked picture came out, [Sharon Osbourne] praised it, and my fans attacked her for being such a hypocrite. So it wasn’t trashy and raunchy when a White woman did it, but it was when a Black woman did it?”
Osbourne didn’t hold back on “The Talk” when she stated that Nicki’s Pink Print album cover looked like a “cheap porno cover of a DVD.” Sharon described Kim’s nude photo as “inspiring” and “liberating.”
We have to agree with Nicki on this one! Minaj adds, “It’s quite pathetic and sad, but that is my reality, and I’ve gotten accustomed to just shutting it down.”
