C: I tried to get into Young Ma but..eh. No thanks. Same with Nicki Minaj (nappy headed hoes sealed it for me) I miss rappers like Missy Elliott and Queen Latifah. They’re not perfect either I just get tired of the constant internalized misogynoir 😕.
“I find it funny that Nicki Minaj sung Victoria’s theme song, Lil Kim sung Trish’s theme song, and there was a Trish/Victoria feud in kayfabe and a Nicki/Kim feud in reality. Life really does imitate art.”
C: I do not hype up white girls for doing something that black women do in their sleep. i just don’t and I won’t. I remember when Nicki Minaj first started being heard on radio. She was extremely different because she was challenging so many gender norms. She was a very talented rapper, very sexually liberated, she sung, she spoke her mind, she was vibrant. And i remember how many people including black people shamed her. They called her ratchet, a hoe, “a bad example for black girls”. Her lyrics were “dirty” (for rapping what male rapper rap about, mind you). They only ever saw her fat ass. Some calling it fake, some treating her like South Africa’s Hottentot. Se had to work reallyyyyy hard to be taken seriously. She made amazing tracks but undeniably, her verse in the song “Monster” was one of her best debuts into mainstream rap, as at that time, Kanye was poppiing and to be featured in his song was a cool and noticeable stepping stone in her career. Ad there is this video going around of Adele lip syncing to this verse in a car and EVERYBODY IS LOOSING THEIR SHIT. ‘Omg Adelle is SO COOL!“ “Adelle should rap!”. We are basically praising a white women for LIP SYNCING the verse of a black women who had to prove her worth to us and still does to this very day. The same goes for that Kendall Jenner video of her dancing to a rap song. I admire Adelle’s vocals, and I love Kendall’s modelling and aesthetic, but I would give a black person breaking barriers and climbing the entertainment corporate ladder all my praise before I ever considered acting thirsty and worshiping the shallow actions of a white culture vulture, because you know, the former is dealing with way more shit and overcoming way more that the latter ever will. And that’s facts.
I know this will probably never happen but I would love to see a collaborative cover of “Bang Bang” originally by Jessie J, Ariana Grande and Nicki Minaj where Hayley Williams would sing Jessie J’s part, Lynn Gunn would sing Ariana Grande’s part and Ariel Bloomer would rap Nicki Minaj’s part. I think that would be awesome.
Emma Watson, Little Mix, Jennifer Lawrence, Demi Lovato, Fifth Harmony, Beyonce, Nicki Minaj, and Selena Gomez confession by anonymous
Women like Emma Watson, Little Mix, Jen Lawrence, and Demi Lovato get
shit on so much and excluded by some feminists just because they said the wrong
thing once or twice, even though they’ve done so much for people. Meanwhile,
people who’ve barely done half the shit those above have done, like 5h,
Beyoncé, Nicki Minaj, and Selena Gomez, are praised for just breathing. Pisses
