During her recent interview with Nightline’s Juju Chang, Nicki Minaj addresses how she feels about those Lady Gaga comparisons.
When asked if she’s offended at constant comparisons between herself and Gaga she says,
“Offended? No. Urkes me, yeah. First of all, I’m a rapper. I’m from South Jamaica, Queens. What are the similarities?… Wigs? Every female in this game wears wigs. ‘Over-the-top costumes?’ Ehh. Try again. It’s getting tired now though, to me. In the beginning I was like, okay, it’s cool, hahaha, when they get to know me they’ll understand me. Gaga is a fantastic artist. She’s paved her way. She’s opened her own lane. But I feel like I have my own lane. And we never cross, ever!”
Guess the eccentric costumes, animated theatrics and multiple personalities aren’t enough to warrant a comparison.
