Ciara knows a things or two about petty beef. The leggy ATLien shared her thoughts with Vulture on the Nicki Minaj, Lil Kim rumble and the importance of female unity. Catch part of her interview below.

In October, you and Keri Hilson went on UStream to clear rumors of there being beef between the two of you. Do you think that females in the music industry shouldn’t have beefs in the way that men do? 
As a woman, it can be challenging sometimes for us to succeed in this business. I think the last thing that we should be doing is tearing each other down.

So what are your thoughts on the beef between Nicki Minaj and Lil Kim?
I love both women. I think that Lil Kim is truly one of a kind. Her moment that she had in music was amazing. I loved the aggressiveness of Kim’s music, as well. It was very authentic. Nicki Minaj, I love her. I like her movement, energy, style. I like that she’s being bold. She’s breaking barriers and beyond. She’s a female rapper but also has pop appeal. I think that’s beautiful when any woman is able to do that. I’m not really a big fan of women not being able to get along in our music world, and in general. But I can still say a lot of great things about both ladies.
