Nicki Minaj Admits She Regrets Recording ‘Anaconda,’ ‘Starships,’ & ‘Your Love’ [Watch]

Published: Friday 7th Feb 2020 by Rashad

With more Hot 100 appearances than any other female artist in history (106 to be exact), it’s pretty clear Nicki Minaj fans – affectionately called #Barbz – aren’t the only ones who have celebrated the diva’s collage of hits over the years.

Yet, while numbers from her discography are among the last decade’s most memorable, a recent interview saw her reveal she wished she could forget at least some of them.

Sitting down with her manager, Irving Azoff, for a keynote conversation at this year’s Pollstar Live conference in Los Angeles, the outspoken and colorful Minaj covered a kaleidoscope of topics including Trump, coming out of “retirement,” Kobe Bryant, and – of course – her signature hits.

Needless to say, the 37-year-old left the people with quite a few tongue-wagging quotes. See highlights inside:

“I wish I had never recorded ‘Anaconda,’” said the Rap queen. “My first-ever solo song on the Billboard was ‘Your Love.’ To this day, I hate it.”

As if that wasn’t enough, she also revealed 2012’s ‘Starships’ was on the list of musical regrets:

“I hate ‘Starships. Like ‘Starships are meant to fly?’ I was like, ‘Why did I do that?’ Like I really think that every time I hear it.”

    • Only Facts February 7, 2020

      Megatron is probably her biggest regret but she won’t admit it. “Braaaa-ta-ta-taaaa” ??

      • MessyBoots February 7, 2020

        That bra ta ta taaaaa irked my spirit something awful.

      • High Price February 7, 2020

  5. BardiGang February 7, 2020

    At least she know she corny. Thanks SHETHER!!! ????

  6. Artemis__ February 7, 2020

    What a hack! She used those same pop records to brag and boast about being the #1 female rapper for 7 years. That’s why she’s not for the culture, at all. ?

    • Cûûmila Cebolla February 7, 2020

      ☕️ ☕️ ☕️

  7. Cûûmila Cebolla February 7, 2020

    Oh so now poor Onika regrets crossing over with those terrible kiddy bops? She sure didn’t regret them when people were still believing her victim act and kissed her ass.

    She only regrets them because now her time is up and she realizes how stupid she looked.

    Are you dumb? ?

  8. Clarks0oñ February 7, 2020

    Your love is actually one of her best songs .
    I became a fan when she released your love.
    And the video is cute also.

    • Paulo February 7, 2020

      The video was great – cute with a concept. The song was also nice. I really don’t like when artists throw their own old work under the bus

  9. Bogus February 7, 2020

    Moment For Life should’ve went number one if streaming counted the way it does now it definitely would’ve…she said she was scared when Your Love came out cause it was pop abs she wasn’t a big fan of the record she said that in 2010

    • Tori February 7, 2020

      “Moment For Life” is one of her songs I still bump like hell, I don’t care how much I hate her ???. That song and complete era brings back nostalgic bliss! I lost all the feeling with her artistry after “The Pinkprint” tho.

      • Danny Bey February 7, 2020

        YOOOOO literally EXACT same!! Every single thing you said

  10. AnonymousTruth February 7, 2020

    • LOL February 7, 2020

      So true, they are really mad on this site. Deflecting behavior.

    • Cûûmila Cebolla February 7, 2020

      Oh shut up and go suck your mom‘s loose c***

      • AnonymousTruth February 7, 2020

        Lol … you like 11yrs old .. chill

      • Cûûmila Cebolla February 7, 2020

        Onika’ a brother must like me then ?‍♂️

  11. Arthus Nico February 7, 2020

    I still prefer these songs, they were fun, now she seems bitter

  12. Just Sayin’ February 7, 2020

    Wow she hates her most popular songs typical Nicki the bird.

  13. MessyBoots February 7, 2020

    I can recall back in summer 2011 right at the height of Super Bass being everywhere telling my cousin randomly “She will never top Super Bass..” That song is still a highlight and purest representation of Nicki Minaj as a pop/rap star. It had everything. The weird accent, clever AF wordplay, and razor sharp delivery sat atop a sparkling 80s era synth beat. She actually became a crossover pop star based on SB’s impact alone. Ppl forget how much that song shaped and impacted her entire catalog over the following decade. Her follow up didnt have a SB it had Starships. I actively HATED Starships then and still now to this day.

    Huh? I LOVED “Your Love”. Too bad she decided to go cartoonish since. Starting with that a**. Betcha she uses a whole toilet paper roll in one sitting. $hit must squeeze all the way up to her crack. Nicki’s the only girl who doesn’t need the toilet seat down. ?

  16. Ronna February 9, 2020

    Your love was terrible right thru me also. She had a lot of terrible songs that made her a star. That’s how u know music industry was changing

  17. Redz February 13, 2020

    She is literally trashing all those big pop hits that shaped her career and made her a household name?! WTF?! BIH, you need songs like that right now because your current music has been trash for a while now! “Your Love” was cool, so was “Anaconda”, and I saw someone referring to “The Boys” as weird?..Nah that was kinda cute and you could tell on songs like that that she was having fun! Now the b**** seems MAD every damn time she drops new music! Is she NOT Happy? Imma just do like her Barbz do when she drops new music… pay her no mind…
