News

By: Vibe / April 19, 2010

From Eve, to Khia and even Jackie-O, so many women in the game have some interesting things to say about rap’s new “it” girl Nicki Minaj. Call it love, confusion or just plain hate there are more opinions about this MC than a little bit and VIBE.com has featured them all (see “Related Stories” below).

 

We thought, enough with others talking about her. . .Let’s ask the woman herself.

 

Vibe recently caught up with Nicki Minaj who had some interesting advice for the non-Nicki fans, what she loved about her “Massive Attack” video and her plan to focus more on her music:

 

“I work hard but I feel like I have a lot of work to do. Right now, I’m about to sit back and focus on my music.”

 

“You should be happy I’m here even though I’m showing you bitches how to do it.”

 

“When people there is one person getting shine it makes them feel unhappy with themselves, the small minded people feel unhappy. The intelligent girls take the things that they like from me and my journey and apply it to their journey.  If I had it my way that’s what they’d all do.”

 

“Everyone is not going to like Nicki Minaj. Everyone’s not going to like the way I look or what I do but I think if you’re smart you’d take from me and figure out why everyone is talking about me. I don’t think they know how to express that so they express it anger, jealousy and hatred.”
