Nicki Minaj didn’t mince her words during a recent interview with British newspaper, The Guardian. The newspaper questioned Minaj about critics saying that she had sold out her hip-hop roots by singing pop on her new album. “It’s the most bullshit thing I’ve ever heard—you like me only when I was doing rap. I never only did rap,” Nicki fumed, “My first single was called ‘Your Love’ and it was a pop song. I did a song called ‘Knockout’ with Lil Wayne about three years ago. Nobody said anything about that. Why?’”
The ‘Pink Friday’ rapper went on, “That’s what irritates me: People always want to talk about who I was, but I’ve always been singing, always been experimenting with pop music. So the fact that it got huge one day, should I apologize for that? Should I apologize that Starships and Super Bass did well, and children like them, and Middle America can sing along?” she added. “There’s nothing wrong with that. I’m just broadening my fan base. I think everyone should enjoy music.”
