Nicki Minaj on Good Morning America-NY
Oh, Nicki Minaj! She is never one to back away from controversy. Here's a look at her most cringe-worthy moments!
Most recently, Nicki faced backlash for filming a woman who was yelling at her and posting it on Instagram. Many accused her of bullying the unidentified female, as it seemed the woman may have had mental issues.
At last year's AMAs, Nicki seemingly dissed Jennifer Lopez, who opened the show. She danced to a medley of top hits, but when Nicki’s song "Anaconda" started to play (sans her rap verses), Nicki looked a bit peeved, and seemed to make eye contact with Meek Mill before turning her attention back to the stage. A number of fans immediately went to social media to comment about the rapper’s shade.
It was so bad that Nicki had to defend herself, saying on Twitter, “lol says what all? I’m looking at my own face on the screen when I’m looking to the right. I turn Bak & look @ her.” Sure, Nicki.
Remember that whole Nick Young cheating fiasco with Iggy Azalea? Well video of Nick admitting to cheating was leaked but according to reports, Nicki was actually behind the tape being being brought to light!
The two female rappers have not been cordial with one another in the past, with Nicki claiming the Aussie uses ghostwriters and doesn't write lyrics herself.
After the accusation, Iggy responded to the claim on Watch What Happens Live, stating, "I have just as many people on my writing credits as she has on hers."
Gossip writer “Fameolus,” who broke the story about Nicki being behind Nick's video being leaked, said on the HD Show, “Somebody from Nicki Minaj’s camp, a source, got the video and they sent it in. They said, ‘Here put this out because Iggy want to talk mess about Nicki Minaj, put this out and let her know what her fiancé is doing.’ That’s the real story behind this.” Messy!
And Iggy is not the only artist Nicki has had issues with. Last year, she stood up to pop princess Taylor Swift! Nicki pointed out that her video for “Anaconda” was not nominated for the video of the year and indirectly threw shade at TSwift: “If your video celebrates women with very slim bodies, you will be nominated for vid of the year,” she tweeted.
Taylor, of course, said Nicki shouldn’t “pit women against each other,” but Nicki hit her back saying she “didn’t say a word about” her, adding that “Black women influence pop culture so much but are rarely rewarded for it.”
But wait, there's more! At last year’s MTV Video Music Awards, Nicki slammed Miley Cyrus in front of the world, saying, “And now back to this b**** that had a lot to say about me in the press. Miley, what’s good?” while accepting the Best Hip Hop Music Video award for Anaconda.
