Although she’s said before that she’s (at least for the time being) done contributing to other people’s songs, this new David Guetta song, “Where Dem Girls At?” that she and Flo Rida did verses on is awesome. Well, not the actual song, which I think I could only enjoy after three Absolut Pear and sodas at the gay bar on a summer Saturday, but her verse in particular. It’s still not “Monster” quality, but it’s a huge step up from that “Right Through Me” shit she was trying to pawn off on us a few months back.
As a huge Nicki Minaj fan, I hate to admit that I was really disappointed by her first album Pink Friday. After listening to her do the sickest verses on her own mix tapes and other people’s singles for years, to hear that album full of filler songs and b-sides was a real disappointment. Nicki always pops when she’s on someone else’s track, but on her own? Well, it’s yet to be seen if she can be truly great.

“I love Simon very dearly. He’s such an amazing man. I had the pleasure of meeting him and my life will never be the same, darling. I told him that. I was absolutely in love with him prior to meeting him. And now that I’ve met him, I dream about him every night.”
I’m not going to pretend like I understand it, but Simon really is one fine piece, isn’t he? And I don’t listen to Nicki’s music (I’m far too busy listening to Ziggy Stardust for the millionth time, and also yesterday I got another Magnetic Fields album because it’s ’99 and I’m too hip to live), but I can’t deny how overwhelmingly awesome she is. Can we get a New Couple Alert up on these two? Can someone get to matchmakin’ please?

The Harajuku Barbie whipped out a fat dildo halfway through her set and gyrated around on stage while holding it in front of her no no spot.
I am Nicki’s #1 fan, but I gotta say that it really says something about the time we’re living in if she can get up on stage with a plastic penis when just like, 20 years ago, Michael Jackson got mad shit for grazing his crotch with his hand during a dance routine.
Check out all the phallic fun after the jump (and duh, it’s totally NSFW…) (more…)

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?
