Nicki Minaj is currently filming the video for her next single “Super Bass” and yesterday, MTV aired a behind-the-scenes segment. Unfortunately Nicki didn’t say anything in her interview that blew my mind (except for that one line about “quenching everyone’s thirst because all these bitches are suckers,”) but the video does look hot. Very similar to something Rihanna or Gaga would do, but definitely a step up from the low-budget videos she was making back in the day.
As I’m sure you know, “Super Bass” is a favorite of both Taylor Swift and Selena Gomez (who posted a YouTube video of herself lip syncing to the track in her People Choice Awards dressing room.) I’m gonna go ahead and say that this is going to be her biggest hit so far.

“I can’t front, I just thought she was going to be the new female MC that none of these other female MCs can touch, but now, she’s blossomed into a megastar with this new attitude and this style. Now when I talk to her, I just tell her, ‘Do what you do, baby.’ I used to be able to go into the studio and say, ‘Nah, don’t say that, don’t say that.’ You know, ‘That was better.’ Now, do what you do, baby. I don’t have a clue about what you’re doing right now, but it’s working, [so] do it.”
Lil Wayne on the fame that Nicki Minaj has achieved – even if you don’t get down with the whole R&B and rap scene, numbers don’t lie – Nicki has broken records all over the place and has also been awarded things like Best Female Hip-Hop Artist and Best New Artist.
So don’t worry – I have no idea what the hell Lil Wayne goes on about (um, EVER), either, and my grandma always said it was best to avoid advice from someone who apparently has posture problems.

“I’m done with collabs. No more collabs for the next two years. Although – Britney’s a snatch like me and she’s cute. Yes. We might do something.”
While I think it would be a huge mistake for Nicki to abandon her bit (after all, almost any one of her verses on someone else’s track was far better than any verse on Pink Friday and I say that as a huge fan), if she’s going to work with anyone, I’d love to see it be Britney. Or Missy Elliott or Christina Aguilera. But sure. Britney’s fine.
Do you think it’s a mistake for Nicki to back away from working with other artists?

… Or that’s the feeling you get looking at the cover art for her new Black Friday mix tape, anyway.
As you can see above, Kim is sitting in the middle of a Kill Bill style bloodbath, with what appears to be the disemboweled carcass of Nicki Minaj behind her. And of course, the name Black Friday is a play on Nicki’s #1 album, Pink Friday.
Violence in rap isn’t something that we as a society take all that seriously any more, but 15-20 years ago, the rap community was considered a dangerous place. Kim, who was especially close to the late Biggie Smalls, should know that. Why she would choose to fight back at Nicki with images of death is beyond me. It’s probably poor judgment for her to take a swing at Nicki in the first place, but illustrating her dead is just stupid.
On the other hand, Kim’s an old rapper. She needs to grab our attention somehow, and the last time she was popular, this kind of behavior was considered the norm. Beside, it’s not like Nicki can’t stand up for herself.
What do you think of this cover? Does it offend you? Do you understand what Kim’s trying to do? Let me know what you think in the comments and by voting in the poll.

Everyone’s obsessed with Nicki Minaj, even little Selena Gomez.
Justin Bieber’s girlfriend just released this video of herself trying to rap a verse from Nicki’s “Super Bass” that was taped backstage at The People’s Choice Awards. Sel actually seems to have most of the lyrics down pat, even the more scandalous lines that were cleverly sped up in post. Disney doesn’t need another one of their stars going down over a leaked video, ya know.
What’s your favorite Nicki Minaj song to sing along to? I’m still pretty hung up on “Roman’s Revenge”…
