    She gives a great interview. That was very sweet and emotional as well as intelligent, I love that no matter what people think of her as a musician as a woman you can give her a platform and she can speak with intelligence.

    Congrats. I can see 2012 is going to be the year of Nicki, because she’s laying the groundwork down so hard.

  8. Nahjee December 4, 2011

    Damn where is all tha other female MC’s at lil Kim, eve, Trina, foxy brown, Missy, mc lyte, da brat, #sorry kreayshawn your not consider as a hip hop/rap artist so yeah.

    Anyway ya chicks need to step up to tha plat man ya ain’t really doing what ya suspose to be doing you know

    Nicki minaj is looking bored right now man but happy at tha same time. Nicki is gonna be a legend by tha start of 2013 jus watch.

  9. DOPE OR NOPE December 4, 2011

    @nahjee yea they do need to step there game up. Lil Kim is trying to make a come back but it’s not really working out she just have to know when to hang it up you know.

    Eve I don’t know what she doing pretty much irrelevant right now. Trina have a song called “red bottoms” which I think is ok but still that song is nowhere to be found.. Billboards NO! iTunes NO! 106andpark NO!

    Missy is working on a new album which I can’t wait for. Foxy brown is wack/washed up/corny/old

    And kreayshawn well she never was her career is over already

    anyway nicki is doing her thing BIG DOPE

  12. Jenny December 4, 2011

    idk wats more fake, her crying,her ass, or her lyrics

  13. Tiffany December 4, 2011

    crocodile tears.

  14. ThatLATEJuice December 4, 2011

    Congrats to her. But, its kinda bittersweet. I’m no fan of current Nicki…at all. But, I f**** with early days Nicki. I feel like, with all the fame and accolades she’s accumulated, it has come at a price. It’s almost like….she sold her soul. Her biggest hit to this day is Super Bass. A pop song. A pop song that didn’t blow up until a pop singer and a disney star with huge followings inadvertently promoted it.
    That right there is just…… *sigh*

  15. Hellen Keller December 4, 2011

    Queen of hip hop? Yeah…right.

  16. NT December 4, 2011

    I can’t wait to see how she reacts to that Best New Artist grammy

    Queen of rap??? How is she the queen of rap right now when she is only the female rappers out right now. But I agree shes a sell out in my opinon, like someone said her biggest hit was a pop song. I don’t even consider Nicki a rappers she’s like a pop artist. She’s smart girl, but I.don’t see her having longevity especially after that horrible ass song she just released.

  19. iSimplyDGAF December 4, 2011

    I wouldnt go so far to say Queen of Rap…she aint been in the game that long or put in that much work. But shes definitely relevant.

  20. Guess What December 4, 2011

    @Thatlatejuice you’re right. Nicki definetly sold her soul to the devil. Let’s not forget about her sleeping her way up to the top. I wonder what she sees when she looks in the mirror.

  21. Guess What December 4, 2011

    She is not the Queen of hip hop with 1 album. Nicki has so much more work to do in the industry. The question is? Can she maintain a long lasting career like the other female rappers that came before her & the same female rappers that she disrespected.

  22. RDK December 4, 2011

    Guess What yes yes yes yes same old same old can’t you haters say something new same old thing just a different day,you fu-cking haters are in loop…you all are like a da-mn vulture hovering around,anytime a black made it it,s like they either fu-ck there way to the top are Illuminate are sell there solds,fu-cking crab in a buckets A-ss holes you fu-ckers/jaters don’t know any better anyways…

  23. Nadirah December 4, 2011

    What thee f*** did Halle Berry have to do with this? That was random as hell.

  24. Juton-San December 4, 2011

    Congrats 🙂
    I just don’t see why she can NEVER look proper at an elegant even 😐

  25. I’ma have to send her back to her maker December 5, 2011

    The same reason lady gaga can’t. They have built a career off that s***. I honestly think nicki has toned it down here. This wasn’t rly an elegant event tho! The only way this look would be unnecessary was if she was at a funeral or wedding but she gonna do her regardless!
