Some people have been *gasp* comparing Lady Gaga to Nicki Minaj, and Nicki doesn’t like this.
“Offends me, no. Irks me, yes,” Minaj said when ABC’s Juju Chang asked if the Lady Gaga comparisons do, indeed, offend the similarly flamboyant hip-hop star. “We are in completely different lanes.”
“First of all,” the “Super Bass” artist said defiantly, “I’m a rapper. I’m from southside Jamaica, Queens. I could say some really crazy lyrics right now, but I won’t. Why don’t I turn the cameras around and ask you?”
So, Chang, not wanting to point out that Lady Gaga’s a native New Yorker, too, mentioned that they both wear wigs.
“Wigs?” Minaj retorted. “Every female in this game—every female in this game—wears wigs.”
Um…the clothes, then?
“Over-the-top costumes?” she replied skeptically, making a buzzer sound. “Try again!”
Despite her aversion to being compared to Gaga, however, Minaj had kind things to say about her fellow star.
“Gaga’s a fantastic artist, you know, she paved her way,” she added. “She’s opened her own lane. But I think that I have my own lane, and we never cross. Ever. So, you know, I really don’t get the comparison anymore. Our music doesn’t sound the same. Our stage presence is not the same. I just can’t see the similarities.”
Well, I don’t see too many similarities except they’re both from New York, but VERY different worlds within NYC. For one, Gaga has talent and Nicki Minaj is a hack. I guess they both dress like they’re insane though! You know, it’s all about the music.
