    If you’re tired of her, why watch?
    If you hate her music, why listen?
    Why waste your time?

    Staying pressed is an occupation for Nicki haters… so very funny!

    Anyway, Happy New Year fams! Nicki did a good job!! She’s come up on her performances from a year ago. Here’s to much success in 2012!

    She killed turn me on! Roman in moscow was too much incomplete lyrics + super bass was the usual mediocre!

    With that said, I love Nicki Minaj. She’s talented with a unique style. I don’t see how she’s a Kim copy cat when kim only makes f*** me music. They both need to “Hang it up. Flatscreen”.

    #That’sAll

    Dear Nicki Minaj,
    Gimmicky costumes and gimmicks in general only work if you have talent to back it up.
    Sincerely, You’ve done way better when you were being yourself

  21. HaterzStayPressed January 1, 2012

    Weezy gave her a contract because he believed in her talent, crossover appeal, and ability to move records.

    Obvious her “gimmick” worked because she is the most charted female in hip hop history (currently has 7 songs on Billboard Hot 100) and have sold millions. I don’t think she’s doing too bad… Haterz stay pressed over this girl!! 😆

  23. Bella January 1, 2012

    I don’t give a s*** about her receipts. Congrats on them but she’s was of more quality when she wasn’t trying to out crazy everyone. Numbers mean nothing if your quality is s***. Its sad how people care more about quantity than quality.
    And I really don’t think Wayne is the best judge of talent. Have you seen who he signed to YM?

    Bella, just because you don’t like her means nothing really. Millions of others do. Don’t buy her s*** and don’t listen to it…. then it won’t bother you so much, no? All opinions are relative. What you may consider trash could be treasure to others.

    I just fail to understand why are so many people pressed over Nicki Minaj? All she is doing is doing HER. She struck a major chord and got a fan base to support her. Is that so bad?

    I think people need to reevaluate their definition of “haters” and “being pressed”. I don’t hate Nicki at all. I congratulate her success and the fanbase she has now. What i don’t understand is how anybody can say that she’s being herself these days. She was fine doing her own thing before and when gaga made it okay to be crazy again and everyone and their mama started jumping on that train as well as Nicki. (not comparing her to Gaga but look at the dates. everyone started doing that s*** around 2009 when gaga started to really blow up) I see her now and it just feels like she’s just trying to ,as I stated before, out crazy everyone else instead of be a good artist.
    I’d like to be able to support her. She is the most popular chick in the rap game today and I want to see her do well but not for churning out b*******. I want to see her make a mark on the industry but what she’s doing now is just a flash in the pan and most likely won’t be remembered. I want her to succeed and to have a long career but I also want her to put out quality things.
    But like you said, opinions are relative. Why is anyone pressed over mine? I think it’s s*** compared to what she has done before and if your opinion isn’t the same, good for you. I don’t care if it’s treasure to anyone else, it’s trash to me. She isn’t completely talent-less (although she should stop singing) but she doesn’t use that talent to back up her gimmicks, she just lets the gimmicks speak for themselves and that’s not cool. If she backed that s*** with dope ass lyrics then she would be the s*** but she hasn’t so far.

    Bella what are you talking about?did it ever accrued to you that this is nicki,s self and she wanted to be like this from the get go,nicki was on underground rapper plus back in the day you have to be hard and street so she had to put on this tuff girl mentality because in rap you can’t be soft as they say are do any popish songs..so my be she saw grace jones are gaga doing what they want and don’t give a damn what peoples thinks and that gave nicki the confidence to do what she wanted to do from the get go,plus she went to performing art school….if nicki had stayed the way she was she would have bin just like a typical female rapper same old same old…she did what other female rappers before her wanted to do and couldn’t because of that circle called rap…even Missy did the rap-pop think and alot of people didn’t give her the respect she deserved [she is still in my top i don’t care what no one things]because of it,missy even wore costumes too in vids…nicki is doing her not everyone is going to like her methods but it is what it is…and you picking up for them haters do you see any constructive criticism in any of them comments? no there isn’t any,so i don’t know why you want to lump you self up with them you are obviously not in the same boat as them.

    @RDK
    1) Please edit your writing next time.That was just sad to read.
    2) I would believe that Nicki was just inspired to be her “true self” if there was some kind of method to the madness. It literally just looks like she is trying to stay relevant by being crazier than everyone else. At least Grace and Gaga wear crazy s*** but have a reason for doing it and can give the the history and inspiration for the outfits. Nicki seemed just fine wearing colorful eye make-up and her regular get up until others were jumping on the crazy train as well and were outshining her. Then that’s when the chick went HAM in a Hello Kitty factory and strolled through the Crayola factory when she was done. It all feels forced to me.
    3) I did give constructive criticism. She should stop trying to be crazier than everyone and work on honing her craft. I’m not saying she should rhyme the way she did before (which really wasn’t mush different than now) but she should go back to the mentality she had. She seemed more comfortable and more focused on what she was saying rather than what everyone else was wearing or doing. She should tap back in to that and put out some quality s***. She already has the public eye and Wayne backing her so if she really has true talent, it will speak for itself. She can continue with the crazy s*** if she wants but put the craft first and let it back you up. Don’t just have gimmicks and that’s it. Have some dope ass unforgettable type s*** to back you up.
    And don’t even bring Missy into this. I like Missy and she was never trying to compete with anyone. When she did some out of the box s*** you could tell that is was because she wanted to and was trying to push boundaries. It all felt organic with her. It wasn’t like she was calm for a while and when other people started changing, she hopped on board. Missy has and always will do her own damn thing. She don’t give a f*** about showing her ass like the chicks around her was doing or getting her rhymes written for her. She was in the studios with the producers doing her own damn thing.
