        Cardi has you and your fave shooK. Deal with it, sis.

  2. Ariel June 13, 2018

    Ummm……the pic of the darkerskinned chick behind with the cornrows, lifting Nicki’s long white woman hair off the ground is rather disturbing…

      Girl it’s just her hairstylist combing her bundles. Stop trying to make fetch happen

      • Ariel June 13, 2018

        And they made her black-face…….

    • Meme June 13, 2018

      Hey face in the pic has me dead 🤣

    • Yan June 13, 2018

      I felt the same.

    • ??? June 13, 2018

      Thats Kim Kimble in the pic. She is responsible for Nicki’s wig. Do your research. Duh

    • TheOne June 13, 2018

      That’s Kim Kimble, the celebrity hair stylist who made the wig

  3. Jasmine Da Bi Asian NOT Trashmine or TROLLmine🙋🏿‍♀️💁🏿‍♀️ June 13, 2018

    Was a pretty good interview. Ready to head this ‘Bed’ song.

    • Jasmine Da Bi Asian NOT Trashmine or TROLLmine🙋🏿‍♀️💁🏿‍♀️ June 13, 2018

      It’s going to be “beg for it”/“side to side” part two. Same ol same

      • Caleb June 13, 2018

        Hopefully it’ll be a little updated since those songs are from years ago but we’ll see.

      • Jasmine Da Bi Asian NOT Trashmine or TROLLmine🙋🏿‍♀️💁🏿‍♀️ June 13, 2018

        None of Nicki’s new music is updated and ari’s latest single isn’t exactly a big change so idk why you’d think there’d be a big change.

  6. Meme June 13, 2018

    She looks out of place in every single photo.

    Beautiful cover. I can’t believe someone said she’s done. How can you be done with songs still charting on the billboard? Upcoming tour? New album? People asking you to feature on their songs? The list of current accomplishments goes on and on. Cardi B didn’t end anyone’s career, and she sure as hell did not take the crown.

    • DanYiel Iman June 13, 2018

      Everyone doesn’t suck Nicki Minaj d*** as you do!!

      • Hoodrat June 13, 2018

        I have receipts. Do you?

    • S.U.P.E.R.S.T.A.R.!. June 13, 2018

      @Hoodrat- Preach!

  8. Clayne June 13, 2018

    Fiiiiiialy something different and fresh from her. That cover is gorgeous, she did that. Now let’s hope the music can follow..

  9. Fancy BISH June 13, 2018

    Done Li looks great on the cover 🤳🏽

  10. Section8DaGreat June 13, 2018

    Give it up Onika, you look like a man!
    Keep throwing out songs until one sticks does NOT equates to a QUEEN. If you were the queen you would’ve be struggling to find a hit.

    • Section8DaGreat June 13, 2018

      *wouldn’t be struggling

    • Hoodrat June 13, 2018

      You make no damn sense. She looks nothing like a man. You must be thinking of Remy Ma or something…Also technically Chun Li was a hit. Who else is doing what she’s doing right now other than Cardi B? No one…especially after being in the game so many years. Get over your hating ass self.

      • Jasmine Da Bi Asian NOT Trashmine or TROLLmine🙋🏿‍♀️💁🏿‍♀️ June 13, 2018

        Chun Li was not a hit.. lol @ technically. Nobody is checking for Chun Li. It fizzled almost before it was released and nobody will ever be revisiting again- EVER

      • S.U.P.E.R.S.T.A.R.!. June 13, 2018

        @Jasmine – Lies. Chun- Li went Gold dear and solidified her 30th top ten single.

    • KillMonger Was Right (Tyler) June 13, 2018

      Okay New York Tiffany Pollard lol

    • Hoodrat June 13, 2018

      Chun Li was in the billboard top 10, and it’s been on the billboard top 100 since. I don’t know of any other female rappers other than Cardi B even on the billboard. It’s also all over the radio. How can no one be checking for it when people are clearly listening to it and buying it? Once again, you make no damn sense.

      • Section8DaGreat June 13, 2018

        @Hoodrat Girl, we are talking about “NICKI MINAJ”. She has NEVER charted higher that Cardi B’s biggest single which is “Bodak Yellow” and NEVER will. She struggling and her reign is almost over. Just deal with it, she had a nice run.

    • Hoodrat June 13, 2018

      How are you going to base someone’s success on 1 single? Yeah, Cardi B may have a #1, but Nicki Minaj has a #2 and several top 10s. Someone’s reign doesn’t end because someone else has a song that charts higher than them. You add it all together and Cardi B has a long way to go before she tops all of Nicki Minaj’s accomplishments.

      • Jasmine Da Bi Asian NOT Trashmine or TROLLmine🙋🏿‍♀️💁🏿‍♀️ June 13, 2018

        Hovering at the bottom of charts after a front loaded one week and SUPER DUPER drop 2nd week isn’t not a hit. It’s premature ejácülátïon. Lmfao

      • Bodaky Yakky June 13, 2018

        #2 IS NOT #1. Almost doesn’t count. Recoup and try again, hon.

      • S.U.P.E.R.S.T.A.R.!. June 13, 2018

        @Jasmine – Then I guess Cardi got [email protected] on then since HER album was number one the 1st week and then DROPPED to #2 when Jason Aldean dropped his album. Cardi’s sales (streams) went down to 25k. Oh and it’s not like Cardi has been [email protected] on before being that she use to strip and all.

  11. Jasmine (The Original Princess) June 13, 2018

    Why is she wearing blackface tho 🤷‍♂️

  12. Ron June 13, 2018

    Her interview was good read even though the interviewer was trying to be messy and start up the whole Nicki vs. Cardi thing again. I can’t wait for the album preorder tomorrow as well. Nicki knows what she’s doing and I do believe this will be her best album. The only people throwing shade are people who clearly never liked Nicki to begin with so why are you even here lol

    • Jasmine (The Original Princess) June 13, 2018

      To remind y’all of your shitty taste in music 🤷‍♂️

  13. Mel June 13, 2018

    The cover is nice, now on to the bad! The makeup issa complete no, very oily and off in color. How does your wig have split ends? Why is your wig not flat ironed, instead of looking like you pulled it straight out the box and jumped in designer clothes? This is a bit boring and she is not commanding in any of these photos! As far as her new music, it’s been OK…but as much trash as she talks OK isn’t good enough!!! This album name needs a DEMOTION from QUEEN to DUTCHESS!

    • Section8DaGreat June 13, 2018

      She is threatened by Cardi’s success so she is shoving this QUEEN title in everyone’s face. Like girl, stop throwing out random songs to see what will stick and admit you can’t make a hit anymore like you used to.

    • Fancy BISH June 13, 2018

      Not a demotion lmaoooo 🤣

    • S.U.P.E.R.S.T.A.R.!. June 13, 2018

      @Mel – The “wig” doesn’t have split it. The hair isn’t trimmed bluntly as to make it look more REAL. If you were Native American or Hindu you would know the look that the stylist is going for as I’ve seen plenty of 100% Native or Hindu women with hair JUST LIKE THAT nearly down to the ground and NO it’s not perfectly trim (as in showing a line).

      • Mel June 14, 2018

        Say less it’s a flop thing I understand that

  14. Bad bixxx June 13, 2018

    The queen looks so regal and beautiful here 👑❤️😍

  15. Jayy June 13, 2018

    Where’s all the people who was saying she bleached her skin ? Did she unbleach and get a tan ? Cmon be consistent at least.

    • Jasmine Da Bi Asian NOT Trashmine or TROLLmine🙋🏿‍♀️💁🏿‍♀️ June 13, 2018

      She obviously has excessively dark makeup on… she’s maadddddd dark skinned- that’s as unnatural as her bleached look

  16. Barb2Barb June 13, 2018

    Dame Onika Maraj. Shine girl. shine. BYE 2 the haterz tho, none of u even buy albums, so…she don’t need u!

  17. Hoodrat June 13, 2018

  18. SNF June 13, 2018
