Full Interview: Lil Kim Graces ‘Watch What Happens Live’

Published: Thursday 16th Feb 2012 by David

With a new single and EP to promote, Rap icon Lil Kim joined Willy Geist and Andy Cohen on ‘Watch What Happens Live‘ last night for a rare sit down appearance.

Peep the full interview below, courtesy of Karim


Now this is the Kim we love.

Upbeat and lighthearted, we commend her efforts to focus on her music and not her envy of Nicki Minaj, which has  come to her detriment many times before.

Now that she has accepted her place in the industry, we only hope the next few months sees Kim claw her way back to the top with great music, great promo and her oh so lovely personality.

    KIM DOES LOOK WELL BUT SHE SHOULD OF HANDLED THE NICKI QUESTIONS MORE CLASSIER AND NOT LIKE A CHILD.

    You silly f*** stay trying to slip some negative s*** in when there’s no need. You miserable f*** need to grow the F*** up and stop stirring s***. How old are you retards 13?? If anything Ricki Garbaj is envious of HER that’s why she’s still dressing like and making flopped ass diss tracks about Kim 3 yrs after the fact…..On 2nd thought I seriously wouldn’t expect anything else than the maturity of 3 yr old’s from this low budget ass blog.

    *quote* everytime you in an interview they always ask you about nicki minaj!*quote*

    Just stop blogging about Kim period… Nobody cares if “it’s the Kim you like to see”. You’re a hater…As far as “Accepting her place in the industry” ask your favorite rapper that isn’t affiliated with YMCMB & they will tell Kim’s place in the industry is still as The Queen. As far as envying Nicki Minaj, why would a rap ICON with 4 albums that sold millions of copy’s and a s*** load of credentials in & outside of the industry envy someone with 1 album that’s struggling to sell over 2 million copies & was her “die hard” fan before she came in he industry? Kim called just Nicki out on her b******* and like a COWARD Nicki never owned up to it. But now that Nicki is using her identify theft tactics on someone else & decreasing in fame due to poor record production & failed major performance why would Kim dedicate any more of her time to her? I mean here it is Nicki has basically dedicated her career to dissing Lil Kim yet Kim’s envious. Sam you really need to take the YMCMB d*** out your ass & learn how to support REAL Hip Hop. You aren’t white, Hip Hop is your culture and I’m SHOCKED that a person with a Hip Hop based blog is accepting Nicki Minaj ompletely “dumbing” down something so essential to the black community. I mean seriously Sam Grow The F*** Up.

    Oh & as far them asking Kim about Nicki… Pay attention to the interview & “So how do you feel about a certain rapper that STOLE YOUR STYLES Grammy Performance”… “She came dressed as Little Red Riding Hood”.. The fact that Willie whispered the “Fire Marshall Bill” reference about Nicki to Kim is just classic. Catch the shade that wasn’t even thrown by Kim.

  6. Dev February 16, 2012

    To be honest, Kim sound like one of those people who’s done everything & knows everyone. I found her annoying. Not that i can stand Nikki either but i can say that i preferrer Kim version 1 & 2’s music .

  7. nicoyuki February 16, 2012

    They were all having fun. They asked her a ?she answered. It’s a done deal casket close. Get over it. I’m sure non of them regret anything they said or did. Its all out of fun people. Kim looked good and sounded happy that’s all that matters

  8. Mickie February 16, 2012

    OMG Kim had me dying!!!

  9. sam February 16, 2012

    love lil kim!

  10. ImMadAsHell February 16, 2012

    Nicki is already played out once her white fans get the memo. Her 15 minutes are up. She would have one album out that had 7 singles & couldn’t hit double platinum if herl ife depended on it.

    Plus Nicki been going after Kim sonce 2003. So who really is mad at Kim, Nicki the d**** rider, the late bloomer.

  11. Nahjee February 16, 2012

    Wasn’t Teamkim saying that “if you still love me” track wasn’t her real single it was just a v day gift for them?!? And that she was gonna debut a new single last night

    Where the single at dumb asses???? Huh where the single at????? Ya like to talk out ya ass to much man

    Ya really don’t know nothing about nothing ya just tell lies after lies

    F****** pathetic ass n*****

  12. Nicki Minaj is done. February 16, 2012

    Love Kim.

  13. Dope or nope February 16, 2012

    @Nobitchassness I agree with you a 100 percent on that comment Kim was acting like a lil kid with them nicki questions tho.

    How old are you Kim be more classy you ain’t been on tv in 6 years and first live interview you act like that.

    Come on Kim show some class! I’m disappointed
    You let the nicki questions get all the ATTENION!

    But you said nothing about your NEW music or your EP
    Or your label deal

    You left us with nothing #EpicFail

    A big NOPE for you

  14. Ja’mila Dior February 16, 2012

    Kim Handled This Somewhat Classy. I Really Didn’t Agree With Them Throwing Questions In About Nicki Minaj. But As People Have Always Said The Industry Loves To Stir Up bull sh*t. i have love for them both time to put a end to this bull.

  15. mel February 16, 2012

    Love kim, she’s real. Not fake like 29 year old plastic ass Minaj.

  16. Jake February 16, 2012

    Every time a Kim fan says this, I laugh.

    I thought Kim looked better last night. And like all of the live shows with andy, it was fun to watch.

  18. JERMAINE February 16, 2012

    Kim did an amazing job. AND ‘SHE’S BACK B******”!

  19. Licious February 16, 2012

    I’m so tired of immature people saying R&B and Hip-Hop is black music and Dance is white music! Music doesn’t have a racial preference! Stop labeling everything because you all look retarded.

  20. Trinity February 16, 2012

    Lol at this envious bitter stupid h** Kimpanzee.

  21. ThatBoyLuke February 16, 2012

    I think this is a great interview! I swear whenever Kim gets interviewed about non BS you see what a sweet down to earth person she is, Nicki always sounds like a stuck up high school b****.
    Also look how good Kim looks! her style and hair were on POINT and it just goes to show that most of what people hate about her face is usually down to awful make-up because she looks good here! Also YES Kim we love Evanescence

    “we commend her efforts to focus on her music and not her envy of Nicki Minaj”

    ^ I think it’s more being pissed off that everytime Nicki has a single she brings Kim into it all AGAIN rather than Envy, and yes i see you trying to shade her by always putting bad photos of her up SMH.

    P.S To any Nicki stans saying Kim didn’t handle the questions classy go take a seat and look how Nicki talks about Kim in interviews because THAT aint classy.

  22. Steph February 16, 2012

    love Kim! Thanks TGJ!!

  23. A February 16, 2012

    love lil kim!

  24. JoArmy February 16, 2012

    Boooooonm!!!!!! lil kim shut it down with this interview!!! And I quote”If you have to make a song named stupid h** then you must be a stupid h**” That killed it!!! Loooooove you kim!! #teamkim

  25. Megan February 16, 2012

    @DopeOrNope Girl shut up.Kim’s a real chick and she answers questions with an honest answer.Y’all so used to them fake @ss celebraities giving them fake @ss poltically correct answers,y’all don’t like real.

  26. HOT!!! February 16, 2012

    AT lICIOUS Sorry but all music is black music OURstory shows it and one day everyone will realize… Sure there are genres that white asian arab whateve else does but truth is most of thsoe are deriviations of black music. I dn’t believe we should be sepretist about it which i dnt believe Black people have been but what we dont do is adhere to something culturally leaving it for scavengers to come in and scoop it up for their own use. Look at Jazz, Rock& ROll, Funk, Pop esp 80’s, Rap-HipHop, even techno and house. Black people around the globe learn your history and everyone else yall too in the end its about credit and honoring that credit but how can you honor people you wont and will not acknowledge for numerous reason wheter; racism, envious, not understanding, and know true knowledge on the subject.

  27. Briej February 16, 2012

    HER PLACE IN THE INDUSTRY IS “THE QUEEN” SHES SOLIDIFIED SHES THE BLUEPRINT SHE”LL BE AROUND WAY AFTER THIS TIRED ASS BLOG IS SHUTDOWN

  28. Always love you, Whitney (RIP) February 16, 2012

    Accepted her place in the industry….lmfao! I usually hate your shade but that was funny!

  29. haterzstappressed February 16, 2012

    The interview was okay.

    But her song is a flop – sorry. I think it’s a okay song but at 2 minutes 33 seconds, the song is too short for radio. You Kim fans were steady saying that this single was only a buzz single for her fans and not for the mass record buying public and it is. She didn’t even discuss her new music last night!

    It was nice seeing Kim all bubbly and sweet… she has a nice personality. However I would like to see more promotion for a full fledge, radio friendly single.

    And LOL @ Kim fans calling Nicki fake and plastic. Really?? Are you guys want to go there? Do we really need to talk about Kim’s face lift, nose jobs, cheek and chin implants, lip injections, 3 breast implant jobs, b*** implants, liposuction, and skin lightening since 1996? Fake b****** can’t call ANYONE out about being fake.

    #EPICFAIL

  30. Thatshitkray February 16, 2012

    #TeamMinaj Can’t really get mad at Kim.. Its an interview so when they ask you answer. They asked Kim and she answered.. unlike Minaj whenever someone asks her a question she runs from the s*** but Kim is from a different era in Rap where back then n***** wasn’t scared to answer a simple question.

  31. MRDIVABITCH February 16, 2012

    She looks dreadful…lesson to be learned: Plastic surgery doesn’t make you look hot, it makes you look UNDEAD

  32. itsme February 16, 2012

    #teamminaj stay mad…when Nicki is in the game for 15+ years like Kim and has a Grammy under her belt they you all can talk…so until then SHUT THAT ASS UP MINAJ STANS

  33. haterzstappressed February 16, 2012

    @ITSME No dear it’s the Kim fans that stay pressed… lying about Kim’s stats and accolades, hating on Nicki more while Kim needs ya’ll to buy her s***, and claiming that Kim was gonna debut a brand new, full length song on WWHL when in fact she didn’t. Sometimes I think Kim’s fans does more harm than good for Kim. You guys are the ones that are pressed over Nicki who continually stays winning.

    Like I said before… man up and put your monies where your mouths are. Support Kim, buy her s*** and keep it moving. 😆

  34. Deon February 16, 2012

    Looking good and keeping it 100 as usual. Love you and can’t wait for the music!!

  37. VFB February 16, 2012

    Love Kim

  38. Monica February 16, 2012

    Kim was so cute and charming!!!!! so much personality.I couldnt get enough of her. That grape juice yall don’t ever have a good post about Kim without saying something negative…smh

  39. Tbozfan10 February 16, 2012

    I’m a Nicki fan, but to be honest she clearly did NOT want to talk about Nicki Minaj. And the interviewer didn’t really want to keep asking Kim about her, but the overwhelming amount of questions he got from viewers for Kim were about Nicki Minaj. He said so, so it was kind of hard to side-step it.

  40. Walk February 17, 2012

    Lil Kim does NOT look good!! She is a plastic surgery disaster and acting/talking like a Valley Girl.

  41. THE ONE AND ONLY February 17, 2012

    IM MORE CONVINCED THEN EVER THIS BLOG WAS WRITTEN BY NICKI COPYCAT MINJA IS WRITING THESE ARTICLES HERSELF NOT ONLY ARE THE NOT ACCURATE . ITS JUST SOME TROUBLE MAKING B*******, ITS TO MUCH GOING ON IN THE WORLD TO BE WORRIED ABOUT SOME ONE WHO WANTS TO JOIN THE DAMN UNIVERSAL SOUL CIRCUS…WTF AND THE LITTLE RED RIDING HOOD LIL KIM DID THAT YEARS AGO CATCH UP SWEETIE BEFORE SPEAK UP AND GET FU@&KED UP……

  42. Chrystal February 17, 2012

    This nicki vs. lil kim stuff between fans and the press is very childish and needs to stop. I agree that Nicki is a rip-off of lil kim. Plus, Lil kim doesn’t look as natural as she did when she first debuted.
