Nicki Minaj Denies Jessie J’s Claim That She Asked To Be On Their Song “Bang Bang” 

August 6, 2021 / Posted by:

In case you forgot, Nicki Minaj, Ariana Grande, and Jessie J joined forces in 2014 for the song Bang Bang, which was nominated for a Grammy(?!) in 2015 and was the Nickolodeon Kids’ Choice Song of the Year the same year. Recently Jessie J gushed about it, saying that Ariana and Nicki heard the song and had to get on it. But Nicki Minaj’s ego would not let Jessie J get away with suggesting she’d be thirsty for a song. She’s only thirsty for Chanel and beef with Cardi B. Nicki reality-checked Jessie J and said she was asked to be on it by her label, thankyouverymuch. I just picture Nicki holding her almost one-year-old son and cooing to him, “Don’t worry baby, your mother would never ask to be on a Jessie J song.”

Here’s a reminder of Bang Bang:

Jessie did an interview with Glamour where she talked about her single and said some pretty glorious things about the Max Martin-produced track. For Jessie, the song was an exciting moment where two big names wanted to work with her:

“Max Martin wrote Bang Bang, and Ariana had been played it, I’d been played it, and we both loved it. We just said, “Why don’t we both do it?” So Ariana stayed on the second verse, I recorded the first verse, and then Nicki was played it in the studio and was like, “I’ve got to jump on this.” We didn’t go to her and ask; she wanted to do it. I’ll never forget… I just sat on the end of my bed holding my phone staring at the floor, going “How the fuck did I land this?””

Nicki Minaj read that, scoffed, and hopped on Twitter to shatter Jessie’s spirit. Nicki slapped Jessie J down so hard her bisexuality came back. JK, it didn’t.

Nicki did not need to bring all that sodium to Jessie’s door like that. Painful… yet mildly comedic. Like a bad American Idol audition from an earnest person. Unclear if this was a response from Jessie regarding the absolute DUNKING that Nicki served her, but she posted this to her Instagram Stories:

This could actually just payback for the time that Jessie performed Bang Bang and didn’t know Nicki’s lyrics as she bobbed her mouth up and down rapidly like one of the worst RuPaul’s Drag Race lip-syncs in human history:

Surely Nicki’s been waiting for her chance at retribution! Jessie J should get back at Nicki for this by making a new song with Cardi B called “Salty Bitches.”
