Nicki Minaj Slams Lady GaGa Comparisons (A Must See!)

Published: Tuesday 10th Apr 2012 by Sam

Like many, ABC’s Nightline see the similarities between Pop forces Nicki Minaj and Lady GaGa.

However, for the ‘Pink Friday’ femcee, they’re comparisons she wants none of. Peep her “interesting” appearance on the hit show below and pay particular attention to point 5.10 and beyond…


Minaj: (Do comparisons to GaGa offend me?) No. Irk me? Yes. First of all, I’m a rapper. I’m from Southside, Jamaica, Queens. What are the similarities? Let me turn the cameras and ask you.

Interviewer: Wigs and…

Minaj: Wigs? Every female in this game wears wigs.

Interviewer:…the over-the-top costumes…

Minaj: Over-the-top costumes? Ehhh…try again.

Interviewer: It does make you mad!

Minaj: No. It’s just getting tiring. In the beginning I was like “ok, it’s cool. Haha, when they get to know me they’ll understand”. I mean GaGa is a fantastic artist. She’s paved her way. She’s opened her own lane. I feel like I have my own lane. And we never cross…ever.


Oh Onika. No.

In being keen appreciators of her “movement”, it’s also imperative to keep it 100 at all times. This being one of those times.

For an artist who -for all her success- is still “establishing”, this strand of “diva” is a no-no. A simple “GaGa is great, but I have my own lane” would have sufficed. But that long, drawn-out “dramafication” just resulted in Nicki looking more pressed than a pancake.

I mean, there’s keeping it real and keeping it “professional-real”.

Instances such as this remind that regardless of what Platinum plaques sit on her wall, Minaj is still “media-green”. Here’s hoping this serves as a learning experience when she watches it back.

Your thoughts?

  2. Anon April 10, 2012

    Please explain how this was insulting to Gaga because I didn’t see anything disrespectful or shady about it.

  3. QueenOfTheNavy April 10, 2012

    maybe u cant read. It says slams Gaga COMPARISONS. Not lady gaga herself. but it doesnt matter, nickis a liar.

    Urrrrbuddy knows she was after Gagas team back in the day so how are you going to copy someone and act like you don’t know why people say you copying them.

  4. dang April 10, 2012

    She’s such a fake joke. That outfit is such a copy of Gaga. Her accent is so trivial and jejune. Cut the act and the coquettishness.

  5. Nahjee April 10, 2012

    Aint nobody diss gaga crazy ass.. Nicki is doing her thing selling records making hot videos doing appearances doing commercials. S*** nicki ain’t worried about that b*******.

    I better not see no gaga fans all up in this post starting s*** either it ain’t that serious.

    If they do come on here and start some s***

    I will drag they hating on Madonna asses across queens NY

  6. Dope or nope April 10, 2012

    @dang who you calling a joke? when your fav is even a BIGGER JOKE!
    Your fave lives and breaths Madonna.. She thinks about Madonna in her sleep..
    when she eating.. When she playing with her p**** watching like a virgin by Madonna.

    So you should not be talking Tell your fav to pay some homage b****

      It’s actually Dale Bozzio of Missing Persons she’s ripping off… look at the pictures of her and then Dale Bozzio…. Pure 100% Fashion/style stealing

  7. JoJo (istan4rihanna) April 10, 2012

    OMG Samantha she already addressed the gaga situation more then 5 times . the way shes saying it you can just tell that she is tired of the comparisons and she waa right

  8. kimberly April 10, 2012

    The thing we all had to consider is niki did not start her career light skin, nor did she with this crazy outfit and styles. It is annoying because this is not the niki people first saw. I will agree with maturing as an artist not in the drastic appearance. Her face is always painted looking animated and her lashes are always 6 inches long. Not forgetting her huge ass with mucho cellulite. Too many colors niki for an artist your age. Will anyone claim this as being YOU? SORRY BARBS BUT I WILL ANTICIPATE THIS FEMALE RAPPER IN THE NEXT TEN YEARS.

    wow I always tought she wanted to be the black lady gaga because the similarities are endless,motortruck mouth,annoying baby and stupid talk ,when they talk it seems they don´t use their brain very often (brains must be getting old for no use) they always contradicts themselves never stands for their actions,they are egocentric and delusional ,they have stupid lyrics on their songs,they want us to believe their songs are masterpieces and inspirational,they want us to believe that gimmicks and using halloween costumes its talent ,both ladies think they are very inovative and original on the music game ,did I say very mediocre talent? well tough honestly gaga does really have more talent in one pinky compared to minaj , and the last one minaj working with redone.
    and she really want us to believe she´s not following the gaga road? give me a break¡ as i said when she came out she just came for her 5 minutes of fame ,at least she can say she tied the queen of pop ,both got a number one album on billboard and its the worst album of their carrers ,cheers nicki ¡¡

  10. Sleazy April 10, 2012

    you are copying GAGA. i don’t know how you gonna try to deny it or sugar coat it , you are doing it. actually you copied everyone if we talk originality 😡

    that s*** about ” my lane” ain’t gonna foolin’ anybody. you are like a student who know nothing about the test she’s about to have and she’s cheating from everybody around her to PASS the test and now that she’s finally did it she thought she’s winning and as smart as the ppl he cheated from.

    😆 , right ?! 😉

    that is you NICKI minaj 😡 , a cheater and a copycat ! 😡

    that not gonna happen. and this b**** is unoriginal. she never wore wigs when she started , gaga was the one who was the only one who’s wearing those stuffs when she started and she made all the other girls go fierce and try those high-fashion outfit !!

    as i said before , she’s like the student who cheated from everyone above in my example.
    to be special u have to have something unique about you , something YOU-nique. something that is SO YOU. very YOU.

    all of them songs you did with redone , gaga’s main producer , all those fashion disasters ” the grammy’s anyone ?!” , her trying to shock with fashion and having odd performances to try to copy gaga , you ARE OBSESSED with copying her , k ?!

    copy/paste this cheater b**** :

    this b**** with her small brain fail to understand it till now and i think she should shut the f*** up cuz she’s so stupid and ignorant in her interviews and her lacking common sense is hilarious.

    do not talk originality OFaka fakaj !!!!
    peace and out. 😡

    Anyone who thinks Nicki slammed Gaga needs to get their shade catchers degree revoked! Where are the receipts for these lies & assumptions? She even called Gaga a fantastic artist. Learn how to catch shade before throwing it. It’s an art that requires confidence and common sense. Something few of you have.

  14. Nahjee April 10, 2012

    @dang & @gagathequuen – would ya two please have a seat and listen to your fave who walks around smelling like yesterday’s rotten eggs lol gaga stan’s always be looking for a fight when there fave dress up as meat at the vma’s making my ass hungry just by looking at her crazy ass.

    Ya don’t want it with teamminaj ya could not even handle Madonna’s team

    So please have a seat gaga is fading nobody is really checking for her but ya everybody eles pretty much fed up with her crazy ass.

    Madonna will put her 6ft under

  15. jay April 10, 2012

    @Sleazy ,oh thanks sleazy I forgot about that one, they both worship the devil,see similarities are endless ,its gonna be hard to get out of this one nick
    I am a young guy but If I had kids or teenagers i bet you these would be the crap that I would never feed them ,I would explain them these kind of crappy music and lyrics would´nt do anything for them or their lives ,theres nothing inspiring or to look for in these fakey rolemodels that just let us know that selling our souls some tits and ass its ok in order to get instant recognition and material things ,what these dumb and clasless ladies doesn´t know its that fast and instant recognition doesn´t give you a LEGEND status ,because legends are made of something more sustainable that is TALENT

    we all know nicki don’t like gaga. K ?!

    go listen to ” i don’t giva a ….” ! she wants to be gaga and lil kim but she can’t , that’s why she’s mad all the time !

  18. kingphoenix9 April 10, 2012

    Lol. @ Onika being so damn pressed.

  19. RihannaNavy April 10, 2012

    why did they put her on Niteline she’s not worth the talk

  20. dee April 10, 2012

    I see more Lil Kim comparisons than Gaga!

  21. ROMANHOLIDAY April 10, 2012

    Only time Rihanna is on a talk show she is talking about the ass whooping she got from Chris

  22. JR April 10, 2012

    First kim now gaga…i see why she’s annoyed. And she wasn’t slamming Lady gaga by any mean.

  23. NikkiIsChillin April 10, 2012

    Ya’ll reaching with this one. I heard Nicki giving GaGa her props. Much to success to both ladies.


    She has every right to respond that way. Lady Gaga did not invent dressing up in something other than a one color dress that all stars wear to red carpets and performances and music videos. NIcki did theatrics for four years in high school and thats why she does those things.

  25. andy April 10, 2012

    Nicki on Nightline. Dag she really blowing up big

  26. MaZ April 10, 2012

    Nicki Minaj = Gimmick of a gimmick

  27. Os April 10, 2012

    ♛ POP ROYALTY ♛ (RUDE BOY) you are obviously one of them who were trying to start sh-t with that song,and it didn’t stick because she wasn’t dissing Gaga,and your dumb @ss is back still trying to start sh-t,you f-cking r***** nicki never ever dis Gaga, even in this interview she is showing her love,but a miserable @ss hole like you turn a blind eye to that,because you are press on trying to start sh-t,you need to get a life,because it,s obvious you d-mn @ss can’t live with out drama,conflict and other sh-t like that,you need some serious help.

  28. Os April 10, 2012

    MAZ i am a fan of grace too,and she was one of the first.original to do that crazy out fit and stuff she was naturally eccentric,so you can fall back with you hating sh-t.

  29. Girrrl April 10, 2012

    Like i said before Nicki is white from the neck up. How can you not compare them? They’re both the same skin color now (we all know you’re bleaching your skin) and those blonde wigs. You wanna be white Nicki you are a sell out. Those costumes look like leftovers from gagas closet and the colorful wigs are giving me Crush on You Lil Kim tease. This is not itty bitty piggy minaj she died a longer time ago.

  30. Beysbetter April 10, 2012

    Nikki caught HERSELFFF!!!!!!!! She was JUST about to say “Every Female in this game Including Beyonce Wears wigs” LMFAOOOO!!!!! I hate this h**

  31. Miao April 10, 2012

    “I feel like I have my own lane..”… What lane, h**? Trash lane? Oh, thats right! Talentless corporate “diva”!

  32. Rob April 10, 2012

    Lady Gaga and Nicki Minaj are both TRASH. Fake wig, hideous costumes, trash music.

  33. TheTruthHurts April 10, 2012

    I’m sorry but that WIG….that Puzzle piece hairline!!! SMH. I’m gonna need for her to either
    A) Call, text, skype, oovoo, or tweet Beyonce and get hooked up to her supplier
    B) Go back to having them big round-the-way girl bangs. This is unacceptable.

    N e who, about the Lady GaGa comparisons……
    Why is she upset? She act like she didn’t waltz her ass in there looking like….GaGa.
    If it irks her so much then just stop doing it. Plain and simple.

  34. Black Madonna April 10, 2012

    Get em Nicki !!!! Luv her

  35. Onyx April 10, 2012

    i think her looks is so Gaga, but i like her, it’s just that Gaga is new and she wants to give credits to veteran singers.

  36. TheTruthHurts April 10, 2012

    Also, I love how much she contradicts herself. “I’m a RAPPER from Southside Jamaica-Queens”. Didn’t she say (in defense for the “sell-out” claims) that she didn’t wanna be put in a box and labeled as just a “rapper”? That she just does what she wants?

    And why does she claim her hometown when it’s convenient? Wasn’t she just rantin and sayin “F*** Queens and NY” recently? Besides that, what does Queens have to do with anything she was asked about?

  37. MISHKA April 10, 2012

    Nicki, that fishnet you’re wearing, I could have sworn Lady Gaga wore quite the same outfit at the Grammys last february…Oh well.

    Nicki and Gaga blew out around the same time after years and years of struggling so yeah, they’ll fell in the same category and therefore are somewhat rivals and will be compared to each other…

  38. QueenSize April 10, 2012

    Didn’t Nicki use to say she loved Gaga. She didn’t copy gaga just like she didn’t clone Lil’ Kim. Delusional b**** as usual.

  39. Quetta April 10, 2012

    Uhm..doesn’t Hollywood try turn every light skinned person white? I thought it was obvious by now and she not only mimicked Kim and gaga but also Gwen stefani!! Harajuku?? Uhm..Gwen all the way and she even have pictures posin like Lil Kim, gaga, and Gwen this female is really unoriginal..but, she only hates the comparisons and as for seein the real nicki..Uhm??? Female, you stay in that barbie played out ass character!! Noone knows the real you!!!

  40. Kayla April 10, 2012

    ohkay she insulted lady gaga how?? ugggh Sam, this is one of the very few times you’ve bugged me…she said and has said and will say that her and Gaga are in two different’s the truth..hell…..lady gaga is doing her own thing, making music, touring for 3 years straight (couldn’t be me) and wearing s*** that would make Willy Wonka’s Ompaloompas quit and go work as her clothes desinger…nicki minaj is winning, taking care of wash-ups and wearing s*** that’s crazy but fashionable you know…there was no shade in there!!!

  41. TheZolonskiTrap April 10, 2012

    that is sooo true Nicki , the female term for a males “bossiness” is B****!!! but that’s ohkay, i’ll be that b**** if i’m getting money..i’ll be that b**** if my album goes to number one..i’ll be that b**** if your dude calls me everytime he’s laying next to you…but just know everytime i’m a “B****”, so is your mother cause she’s on her hands and knees doing ass told!!! KNOW I’M A B****!!

    But i liked the interview, no shade towards gaga..sam, STOP IT!! LIKE 4REAL! STOP! i hope the best for Gaga and Nicki cause they both winning!

  42. Saetana April 11, 2012

    Much ado about nothing, Nicki didn’t insult Gaga at all – she was just irritated by other people comparing her to Gaga, she said Gaga is a fantastic artist. I personally have no idea whether Nicki is emulating Gaga or if her clothes are her own idea but I will say that Gaga somehow manages to carry off most of her oddball outfits, shame we can’t say the same about Nicki who often looks a total train wreck. She needs to get away from all those fluorescent clashing colours as she looks like she should be on CBeebies ;o)

  43. LadyBoleyn April 17, 2012

    I hate Nicki Minaj….I’ve been saying since I first saw a picture of her that she was a fake, disgusting, Lady GaGa wannabe. She’ll fade like the rest of them, and she’s not a legitimate artist to me…
