Nicki Minaj Talks Eminem, Ricki Lake, Britney, And More!

nicki minaj speaks on a lot of subjects

First thing's first, we'll pick your brains!

During a recent interview, Nicki Minaj opened up about a variety of subjects. Here's what she had to say…

Nicki on how her Ricki Lake shout out in the Till The World Ends remix started up Ricki buzz:

"I really love Ricki. Of course I was super young when I watched her show, but something about her demeanor just always came across as the girl next door, and she had this sweet smile. It was done as a joke but to know that someone I really like wound up getting a little bit of face time from it — it’s pretty cool. I mean people do that for me, and it’s good to return the favor."

Nicki on her upcoming tour with Britney:

"…I feel like she has experienced life as an underdog, and I feel like my whole career I've been the underdog. I think that it just goes to show that when you are a strong woman, at the end of the day, it doesn’t matter. You bounce back from whatever. And I think she’s probably gone through 10 times whatever I’ve gone through. But the fact that she came back out with just so much fire inspires me, and it inspires young women and people all over the world. It just inspires you. A lot of my fans feel like they are the underdog and feel like they are the people who aren’t ever accepted for themselves, or who are laughed at or poked fun at forever. It just goes to show that once you keep at whatever it is you’re doing, people may not like you, people may not love you, but they will have to respect you at the end of the day. And that respect is all that matters."

Nicki's thoughts on Eminem's homophobic lyric in the song Roman's Revenge:

"You know, if I’m being honest, I didn’t like [him using it]. I spoke to everyone I knew about it. I spoke to my hairdresser, who’s one of my closest friends. I sat him down and said, “Terrence, what do you think about this? How does this make you feel?” And we had a long, long talk. And he said he didn’t feel like Eminem was talking about a gay person. He felt like it was a word being used to describe a straight man, and he didn’t take offense to it. It’s Eminem — I felt like we were creating a movie. And in the same way, I feel like if you were to watch your favorite actor or actress say “faggot” or say “nigger” in a movie, you don’t hate them because it’s like they’re playing a role."

" 'Roman’s Revenge' was more like a theatrical piece. I was a character and [Eminem] was a character. This was Slim Shady and Roman. Of course, when it comes to creativity, there’s such a thin line between creativity and something being offensive. But one thing I knew for sure was that my gay fan base knows about how I feel about them, and I’ve embraced them from the beginning — since my mix-tape days. [Reaching out to gay fans wasn't something I did] once I came into pop culture just to try and get some extra fans. So I felt like the positive would outweigh the negative, and we just kept moving with that."

Thanks for opening up, Nicki! And we're actually pretty impressed with how you addressed Eminem's controversial lyric from Roman's Revenge.

Can't wait to see U on tour with Britney!!!

    MTV employees are getting murdered execution style and you're posting shit about Minaj? You must be getting paid A HELLUVA lotta money from these talentless hacks to be the LAST outlet to report something important.

    Two programmed Monarch slaves for the price of one on that ticket,not cool contributing to modern day slavery folks.

    Seriously! What the fuck is up everyone's asses? I used to be a bit offended by the way he would degrade women but then I came to terms with the fact that it's just his style and it's a certain kind that's making a lot of hit songs and money.

    Her friend Terrence is a smart gay man..

    Re: marieclare89Re: roseblanche – Why would you 'get over' something just because someone's been doing it consistently for a long time? If anything, that just means it's MORE likely that he really IS a misogynistic, homophobic dickcheese.

    I like some of Nicki's music but this hairdresser story made me think she has a lot more in common with Barbie than she even knows i.e an empty head. OR she's trying her absolute best to justify something she knows damn well goes against her principles, but the money and exposure is just too damn profitable to walk away from.

    OMG , I cant stand this fake dick sucking Kim Clone Clown. Yall don't even realize how fake & phony she really is. Why won't she finally admit she's sleeping with her hypeman SB, since she wants to open up about things.

    Since Romans Revenge was the only rap song on her so called rap album, no one was worried about it, since all of her so called fans that bought it listened to it only once. This was one of the worst albums of 2011, I and every real hip hop artist hated this album. She needs to sit down. Eminem hasn't been legit since he got clean and since he is doing songs with Rihanna he certainly has no legitimacy.

    Re: miraclesqRe: miraclesq – co-sign 100%. Her album is straight POP GARBAGE. Her fan base is 13yr old little girls & gay boys. She is not HIP HOP at all. Now she's gonna fake the funk with Britney. #waitingforrealfemalemcs.

    the new bandwagon is to do the underdog thing. gaga started the whole pandering to demographics with lies and b.s to get their vote/cash. both nicki and gaga cant stop talking about the gay community, its great to support that im all about equality, but if you keep singling out that community and act as thought they are so fragile they'd been broken destroyed by words ….your treating them like they are different.. they are not they are just like everyone else who can handle a jab here and there. the new group to pander is the type of person who is the victim or the outcast…..raise your glass, firework, most of gaga's new record, half of nicki's but i guess because they are all written by like 2 different guys i guess that makes sense.

    plus its just laughable one of the fakest, no dignity, posers is talking about people being outcasts for being themselves.
