Nicki Minaj is a Republican Now Because President Obama Never Answered Her Tweets

I knew I felt a certain way about a certain Nicki Minaj for some reason.

Anyway, the (latest) beef that Nicki’s got with the current government is over heath care and the limited access some people have to it. Nicki took to her Twitter earlier this year to express her dissatisfaction with the nation’s current policy, and how it affected her on a personal level when a friend died because of lack of care:

“Yvette Wilson passed away from cancer tonight. God Bless her. (( Whats sad is that when Yvette was bringing home the bacon, the gov’t was probably taking millions. On her death bed tho, #Nowheretobefound. That should be a God given right! Even with Obama Care, too much involved. Just give FREE health care to all. @barackobama What can we do? @BarackObama I wouldn’t mind the millions they took if it was going to healthcare. Why should a poor person struggle to pay for MEDS sir”

And she’s got a point. Especially the part where she talks about the government getting their piece, but leaving the sick girl high and dry when she needed care. But Nicki must be ill-advised, because Romney, as far as I’m aware, would never have anything to do with universal (let alone “free”) health care. Hell, Mitt Romney probably doesn’t even know who Nicki Minaj is, for crying out loud. But I’m sure he’s just thrilled that there’s someone else out there voting for him before even knowing what they’re talking about.

Funny thing is, Nicki isn’t even registered to vote. From Hip Hop Wired:

If Nicki Minaj makes the decision to endorse Mitt Romney in the forthcoming election, she may want to take care of something first: registering to vote. Minaj was flooded with media clips Tuesday (Sept. 4) when a snippet from her lyrics on Lil Wayne’s Dedication 4 mixtape revealed that she is a Republican and voting for Romney. The line may have been blown out of proportion but in an age when personal information is just a Google search away, the 29-year-old was quickly exposed for her voting past, or lack thereof. As it turns out, in the three states where she’s lived, Minaj is not registered to vote. Having resided in Georgia, New York and California the Young Money Barbie never seemed to find the time to fill out and mail in a registration card, or do it online.

Ugh. She’s such a joke, you know?

Nicki Minaj Tells Fans to ‘Eat Sh-t and Die’, Calls Their Mothers ‘Wh-res’

Ooh! Classy!

Don’t know if you guys follow Nicki on Twitter, but it’s, like, my job to, so when I got a nudge from one of our followers that Nicki went nuclear on a bunch of people calling BS on her “medical issues,” I immediately thought, “Well, there goes American Idol.”

From Nicki’s Twitter, a condensed rant about fans and whores and consuming feces and then passing away (presumably from consuming said feces, but it could have been from the part where she told people to go kill themselves):

I will NOT let you people make me feel horrible for a f*cking HEALTH issue! That’s what got me in this mess! I shldve listened 2 the doctor!

I am so thankful to my true fans who understand WHY I couldn’t play #VFestival & WHY I can’t play Dublin. Absolutely gutted However, if u have anything negative to say to me, please #EatSh*tAndDie – I am human. I was in jeopardy of losing my voice entirely and needing surgery on my vocal chord. If u can’t understand that, your mother’s a WHORE!!!!

I will NOT let you people make me feel horrible for a f*cking HEALTH issue! That’s what got me in this mess! I shldve listened 2 the doctor! Like people are hitting me telling me I shldve mimed. No! Then you woulda made a f*cking STORY out of that too! #killyaf*ckingself

My beloved United Kingdom, u know how much I f*cking love u! Ireland, I truly appreciate you. Barbz, thnku for the well wishes. All you do is rip people apart and when they’re dead & gone u won’t lose a wink of sleep. #goF*ckYourselves

Later she told followers that she didn’t mean for her “FANS” to eat shit and die and all of those other lovely things, it was just for the critics and people who don’t like her. In short, I guess if you don’t like Nicki Minaj, you should probably go kill yourself (if you want to do what you’re told by Nicki Minaj, anyway).

So, uh. American Idol. Maybe rethinking this Nicki Minaj thing? Because personally, I wouldn’t watch this bitch on television if she were on fire and Simon Cowell was pissing on her to put her out, for real.

I said it a year ago, and I’ll say it again—Nicki Minaj is real classy.

Nicki Minaj Is Coming to American Idol, Mariah Carey Is Displeased

Nicki Minaj hasn’t officially signed on to be the newest judge on American Idol, mind you, but it’s apparently not that far off. Everyone, including People, is reporting that she’s in negotiations to join on for next season. And I … well, I’m not sure how I feel about that. It seems sort of odd because Nicki is still relatively new to the game, she doesn’t need to revive her career like Jennifer Lopez or Steven Tyler or Mariah Carey or essentially anyone else who has ever been a judge on American Idol. Plus, she gets on my nerves so bad, and I’m really not looking forward to hearing so much more about her. Oh, and she’s also bananas. But good choice?

According to Idol‘s other new judge, no, not so much. And as for the other new judges, well, who even knows what’s going on with that:

Nicki Minaj may well become a judge on “American Idol,” but it will be at the expense of Mariah Carey, who we’re told hung up the phone when she was told Nicki was the top candidate.

Sources connected with “Idol” tell TMZ … Mariah was led to believe she would be the only woman on the judge’s panel.  Choosing Nicki would not only crush that expectation, it would add insult to injury because Nicki (29) is a lot younger than Mariah (42).

As for the composition of the judge’s panel, we’re told by no means is it a done deal.  There are 2 scenarios being played out.  First, it’s unclear if Randy Jackson will come back as a judge or a mentor.  If he leaves the judge’s panel, there will be another spot to fill.

The second scenario … we’re told some of the honchos believe it’s a mistake to have 2 women and a man on the panel, and a 4th male judge would be necessary.

As for who’s still in the running, we’re told Brad Paisley, Keith Urban and Enrique Iglesias are leading the pack.

And there’s one other thing.  Sources connected with the show say they’re worried … if the judge’s end up being Mariah, Nicki and Randy … middle America might not welcome the blackout.

You know, now that I’ve had some time to mull it over, Nicki and Mariah might be a pretty good match. They can both be catty divas, and wouldn’t it be great to see two catty divas competing for the spotlight on a show where they’re not supposed to have the spotlight? And then Randy could hang out and do his awkward laugh, and maybe Enrique could be on the other side, talking quietly about his tiny penis. Yes, this might be a very good idea after all.

Nicki Minaj Is Very Serious About Proper Lawn Care

From Hollywood Rag:

Nicki Minaj demanded the grass outside her dressing room at T in the Park be cut shorter.

The ‘Starships’ hitmaker refused to walk around her private area at the Scottish music festival last weekend because the lawn had not been trimmed sufficiently and insisted someone tackle the greenery before she would step outside.

A source told The Sun newspaper: “Nicki went mad about the grass around her area, saying it was far too long for her to walk on.

“She threw a complete strop, pouting and pointing and asking someone to get a lawnmower to sort it out.”

Nicki – who is also said to have made the same demand at the BBC Radio 1 Hackney Weekend festival in London last month – was later blasted on twitter by a fellow performer at the annual music event, which took place in Balado Park, Kinross.

Singer Frank Turner tweeted: “You can (I suppose) be a d**k to your own crew, you’re paying them. But everyone else? Not to mention the people out front. Ugh.

“To clarify: Nicki Minaj has been a selfish s***head to all the hard-working crew backstage at T. Pathetic. F**k off.”

The rapper also angered the crowd as when she eventually made it onto the stage 50 minutes late; her 30-minute performance was booed by fans after she appeared to be miming for much of it.

One fan said: “We were buzzing for the gig and it turned out to be a total joke. Disaster doesn’t even describe it.”

It’s always been fascinating to me to think about how people get this way. Like, Nicki Minaj actually thought that forcing someone to mow the grass outside of her dressing room because it was too long to walk on would be an acceptable thing to do. How is that possible? How do you have a dream job where you get to do what you’ve always wanted to do and get paid insane amounts of money for doing it and still act that way? I would imagine that it would be the opposite, that you’d just be stoked on your whole life every single day, but it seems like that’s rarely the case. And of course I get having bad days, but during the worst day possible, I can’t imagine being this rude to another human being.

What I’m saying is that for the amount of money Nicki gets paid, she can suffer through some tall grass, quit your bitchin’, walk it off, etc., etc.

Quotables: Nicki Minaj Felt Assaulted by Madonna

“She kissed me but I didn’t kiss her. I wasn’t expecting it and I was shocked. I was shaking, thinking, ‘Is this really happening, why is she doing this?’”

Nicki Minaj on the “famous” Super Bowl kiss from Madonna that I didn’t even realize was happening because I was too wrapped up in the general suckitude that was Madonna’s Super Bowl performance this last time around.

Nicki appeared on the Graham Norton show, where she was asked how she felt about Madonna slithering up to her and laying one on her when she least expected it. Needless to say, Nicki was not pleased, and Madonna clearly didn’t realize that it wasn’t 2003 and Nicki Minaj is no in-her-prime Britney Spears. Also, Madonna is gross.

Now that you mention it, I’m kind of marveling at how Madonna could go ahead and call M.I.A. “teenager” for flipping the bird on national television, when she thought it was totally OK to go ahead and attempt a sexual assault on Nicki Minaj on the damn stage and not fit the whole scheme into that “teenager” box she so valiantly speaks of. Because the last time it was “cool” and “cutting edge” to suck face with a chick just to thrill others or freak them out was back in high school, and last I checked, most people who are in high school are teenagers. In conclusion, it’s nothing short of creepy when it’s someone who can really kind of be your mom.

On the real, I kind of hate you, Madonna, not only because you’re MADONNA ffs, but also because you went and made me talk about Nicki Minaj for the sake of bashing you. It’s a double-edged sword, that one, and I’ve gone and impaled myself on it so it can all just be over already. Thanks.

Nicki Minaj and Lady Gaga Are Nothing Alike

A photo of Nicki Minaj and Lady Gaga

Seriously, comparing these two ladies would be like comparing Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera: where do people even come up with this stuff?! Every single singer is unique and special and – just like a snowflake! – no two of them are even remotely alike.

Especially Nicki Minaj and Lady Gaga. I’ve been mulling it over for a while now, and I can’t think of a single reason why anyone would compare the two of them. Where are the similarities, I ask you!

Oh, and Nicki would like to know as well:

“Offends me, no. Irks me, yes,” Minaj said when ABC’s Juju Chang asked if the Lady Gaga comparisons do, indeed, offend the similarly flamboyant hip-hop star. “We are in completely different lanes.”

“First of all,” the “Super Bass” artist said defiantly, “I’m a rapper. I’m from southside Jamaica, Queens. I could say some really crazy lyrics right now, but I won’t. Why don’t I turn the cameras around and ask you?”

So, Chang, not wanting to point out that Lady Gaga’s a native New Yorker, too, mentioned that they both wear wigs.

“Wigs?” Minaj retorted. “Every female in this game—every female in this game—wears wigs.”

Um…the clothes, then?

“Over-the-top costumes?” she replied skeptically, making a buzzer sound. “Try again!”

Despite her aversion to being compared to Gaga, however, Minaj had kind things to say about her fellow star.

“Gaga’s a fantastic artist, you know, she paved her way,” she added. “She’s opened her own lane. But I think that I have my own lane, and we never cross. Ever. So, you know, I really don’t get the comparison anymore. Our music doesn’t sound the same. Our stage presence is not the same. I just can’t see the similarities.”

I can see where she’s coming from with some of this. They do have very different music, from the bits I’ve heard from both of them (Gaga doesn’t have any secret rapping talents, does she?), but that’s about it. As far as I know, and correct me if I’m forgetting anyone, but Lady Gaga was the first wildly popular lady in a hot minute to wear truly wacky costumes not only as part of her performance, but as a part of her entire persona as well, and Nicki Minaj is the only other popular lady I can think of who consistently does the same thing. Sure, Katy Perry‘s fashion can get a little out there every now and then, but for the most part, Lady Gaga and Nicki Minaj are the only ones close to each other in terms of crazy clothes. Right?

And do you think it’s really true that “every female in this game wears wigs”? My goodness, you guys, I’m just getting so disillusioned these days.
