I think that at their core most celebrities are just waiting for the right moment to snap out on people, for whatever reason. Maybe they’re having a bad day. Maybe they accidentally put salt instead of sugar in their Corn Flakes. Whatever the case may be, once they have an opportunity to put people in their place they normally take it. This was the case with the Queen of multiple personality disorder Nicki Minaj when a critic accused her of being the ultimate hater after Nicki’s rival Cardi B posted a message of love and support for her fellow female emcees because of Jermaine Dupri saying most of them are rapping strippers.
If Pop Star Bingo was a thing, you can be guaranteed that somewhere among the squares marked MISGUIDED ATTEMPT AT ACTING and PERFUME RELEASE, the bingo card would include a space that reads: PERFORMS FOR DICTATOR. It happens a lot. Mariah’s done it. JLo did it. And in 2015, Nicki Minaj performed at a Christmas party hosted by a company owned by Angolan dictator-type José Eduardo dos Santos. That may seem like Nicki likes money more than human rights. But that was then, and this is now.
Nicki Minaj is irritated with everyone. Still. Last week, Nicki took umbrage with some silly lyric that Miley Cyrus (or her co-writers) wrote about her in Miley’s new song Cattitude. This week, she’s mad at…people who don’t recognize her greatness? People who like Purdue chicken? Pick one.
Nicki Minaj and Jimmy Fallon went to Red Lobster together because Seth Myers and Rihanna had such a great time together day-drinking, why not do the same thing but with Red Lobster instead of alcohol? This is really the 99 Cent Store version of Seth Meyers day drinking with RiRi.
It was your typical fun time of watching two rich, famous celebrities enjoy their wealth and privilege in front of us peasant-folk. But the thing is, because of a tweet Nicki sent after the show and because of some marriage rumors going on with her convicted sex offender boyfriend Kenneth Petty, people are now thinking about how she may in fact be pregnant.
In a song on her new EP She Is Coming (aka I’m Way Into Sex And Drugs, Y’All!), condom merchant Miley Cyrus raps about how she likes Nicki Minaj but listens to Nicki’s enemy4life Cardi B. Nicki and Miley have had contretemps in the past so it stood to reason that Nicki would move to get “Ashley O” and her Black Mirror wig in check. Which she did.
Country-pop yee-haw Queen and Grammy-winning GIF provider, Kacey Musgraves hit that Met Gala where she turned the phrase: “Come on Barbie, let’s go party,” into a real life situation. She showed up in full hot-pink Barbie regalia complete with her very own hot pink corvette (insert AngelyneSideEye.GIF here).
