  11. JJFAN1814 July 25, 2011

  12. BLAME July 25, 2011

    @Gilberto

    That makes no f****** sense. So, because she has an endorsement deal, she’s copying? STFU. You b****** will say anything is a copy these days.

  13. Malibu Barbie July 25, 2011

    *SideNote: Before Barbs start a stan war…Lil Kim did Sign to Mac before Nicki, Know your history before you throw shade.

  17. DanityKiWi July 25, 2011

    How can you hate on someone who is doing her part on helping to fight A***!?!?
    Shame on all of you.

  18. MISHKA July 25, 2011

    Congrats to Nicki.

    David LaChapelle can’t be nobody’s nightmare, not even Rihanna’s. She should have apologized to the man after she got caught. I guess at times she forgets her backup plan after her 25th birthday is modelling.

  19. SmoothCriminal July 25, 2011

    so what if kim did it first are something similar,who gives a d.mn,nicki is doing nicki,so just because nicki,got a deal too she is coping,kim,so because kim did it,nicki should turn down the deal?,man you haters makes me sick no wonder alot of you are stagnant in life and not going no were,keep doing you nicki be a mogul in your own rights,it scares some people when a female is doing power moves and be trying to stand firm on her own too feets.

  20. Malibu Barbie July 25, 2011

    @THENAKEDTRUTH Kim did alot of things FIRST.

  21. Malibu Barbie July 25, 2011

    @SmoothCriminal how is nicki doing nicki when shes dressing like lil kim, hanging out with kims friends, making the same career moves as kim and hiring Lil Kim’s old team??????

  22. Those That Cannot Do, Stan July 25, 2011

    @DanityKiwi

    Oh didn’t you hear? You can’t help fight a*** or those suffering from the awful disease if someone else did it. MAC and A*** is KIM’S THING!

    Do yall rleven hear how stupid you sound or is the world muffled by having Kim’s p**** lips wrapped around your head??

    It’s f****** A***!

    As in people DYING and SUFFERING!

    Dumbass Kim fans talking about albums dropping, SMH.

    I’m happy for Nicki in terms of success and happier those individuals who will be helped. Sorry Kim fans, MAC doesn’t care about this whole retarded beef. They’ve been working to increase their Viva campaign and further spread this charity to help more people.

  23. BEYONCE FOREVER July 25, 2011

    OMG will this d*ck sucking plastic clone ever do ANYTHING original in her life? Kim & Mary did this already. This b**** is a joke. If you Barbie stans dont really see what this is, you’re crazy as hell. NICKI WANTS TO BE KIM. This has been evident since day 1. I’m not fooled by her or her evil team. What’s done in the dark will come to light. #fakefraud

  56. Amy July 25, 2011

    Damn! This girl went as far as hiring Lil Kims team right down to the hairstylist. Pathetic.

  57. Diane July 25, 2011

    Did Lil Kim do it 2x? Did MAC create Lil Kim’s own cosmetic line?

  58. Jane Doe July 25, 2011

    @Rhi Rhi is Queen. Nicki is NOT doing the ads alone, she’s doing the ads with Ricky Martin. It’s on Nicki’s website. Straight swaggerjacker.

  59. deontay July 25, 2011

    @ wait, how come everytime nicki minaj does sumthin yall kim fans always gotta bring up how kim did this && kim did that…damn…let the gurl have her shine…get over the fact that lil kim is old && done 4, its nicki hour now so uh yea…

  61. Those That Cannot Do, Stan July 25, 2011

    Lol Kim fans stay giving Nicki some attention, if y’all were smart you’d ignore Nicki and keep it cute, instead y’all want to rant and rave in her posts.

    Personally I’d suggest putting all your energy into supporting Kim because she’s the one who needs it now. Respect what she had in the past but wake up. No one trying to make money is trying to live in the 90’s. Reality is it’s 2011 and folks are looking for what’d new and next and that’s Nicki. She’s going to keep getting attention, she’s going to become more popular, she’s going to team up with more people and you guys are going go rage for nothing.

    Focus on KIM, at least your energy will be going to someone who needs it because you know Nicki stay not giving a f*** about y’all.

    If Kim had the game on lock down she’d be like Cyndi Lauper or Madonna, Janet or Mariah, you don’t see any of them causing a fuss ability new meat

  62. noclone July 26, 2011

    kim been there n done that twice before, one with mjb and one in 2006 aint nothin new under the sun……… NEXT!

    shut the f*** up! we stan for a living LEGEND. and original,female rap ICON. who pioneered a whole lot for female rap.
    YOU STAN for a swagger jacker,a boring live performer, a gimmick, a talentless rapper and a bi-polar woman who has 30 different alter egoes.

    Nicki has got some talent, but she needs to stop with the gimmicks and Barbie thing. It’s good that she’s supporting a product that’s supporting charity.
