She should be proud of herself!

Nicki Minaj's debut album, Pink Friday, landed the #2 spot on the Billboard Album charts, coming only below Kanye West's My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy, and selling 375,000 copies - a number a female MC hasn't bested since Lauryn Hill's The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill over ten years ago!

Minaj reveals:

"I feel this weird calm feeling. I'm just so grateful and kind of still in shock. These numbers haven't been put up since 1998. It just makes me feel proud of my team, proud of my fans, everyone who has had something to do with my dreams. Finally, we are seeing this dream come to fruition. It feels incredible. Now I can promote the body of work. I feel like I gave birth to my baby, now I'm gonna teach it how to walk and how to talk and spoil the baby."

Enjoy it, bb!

You've clearly worked hard for such a deserved accomplishment!

Now go out and enjoy it!

    Get it Nicki! You deserve it! And screw all the haters (like that bitch Lil' Kim).



  2. 2

    her lipstick/liner matches 1998 too……….



  3. 3

    Good for her. While "Black Friday" by Kim was alright, this news blows that track CLEAR off the map!! Hopefully Nicki will inspire other female MCs to rise up and not be afraid of the 40 year old haggard with lunch lady weave will come after them for "copying everything she did because she is the creator of the female and rapper, period." LOL!

    Is that black lipliner around her lips? O_O It's kind of buggin me…



  5. 5

    looks like she has a drawn mustache lol



  6. 6

    Hmmm….Hasn't Lil Kim made an album within the last 10 years???? I wonder what she gots to say now?



  7. 7

    I wonder if she's bald.

    Re: Starflower11 – My sentiments exactly! It looks like a thin moustache.

    uhg she makes my eyes and ears hurt can she please go away. and wtf is with the lip liner?! This is just depressing for fans of good music and women in general that a female mc hasn't reached those numbers in 10 years… wish we currently had someone like Lauryn Hill on the radio/tv/blogs instead of this artificial garbage…



  10. 10

    wtf? get that mustache/liner off your lip, u look ridiculous!



  11. 11

    Re: April 20th – why do you hate on everything every page…you are a waste of good sperm…your insecurity has to be terribly low, i feel so bad for you.



  13. 13

    Really really bad music!



  14. 14

    Re: BiaesLoca – what a shame that you feel the need to talk to someone you apparently don't like and then attempt to offend them……LOL!!! And I'm the insecure one??? It's a celebrity website for D-Z listers, there's not much to congratulate……..on top of that, it's called sarcasm you dumb fuck.



  15. 15

    It's funny, I just listened to the Fugee album The Score yesterday and am continually blown away by them. Lauryn Hill had such pure raw talent… too bad she cray cray! Rainbow Brite black barbie on the other hand is a talentless hack.



  16. 16

    too bad she's not gonna get to see much of that money…since it's going to everyone else who worked hard on convincing the public she's the next best thing….



  17. 17

    It was nice of her to do a tribute to Heath Ledger from the Dark Knight … quite frankly that was a nice gesture on her part.



  18. 18

    after watching her MTV show the other night…I have to say…If I worked for her I would have punched her in the face by now…she is totally rude and nasty



  19. 19

    STFU, people. She is clearly talented and she shitted on all the haters, including you awful people who bashed people behind a computer. I love her and she worked her ass off to get where she's at now. Fuck lil kim, you has been!! Hang it up, flat screen! If you aint shittin, get off the pot, people!!



  20. 20

    Nice 'stache.



  21. 21

    LOL somewhere Lil Kim is crying over her numbers LOL. Lil Kim probably cant sell 375K her whole entire album run LOL



  22. 22

    She works her tail off and sacrifices her personal life. An interview said that she wanted all of this to take care of her mom, and to put her nieces and nephews through college.
