“Why do people ask me to lose swear words? Do people ask Eminem to lose swear words? Do they ask Lil Wayne to lose swear words? Nobody stops them and says ‘Would you stop swearing… for the children, please?’ … I don’t want children cursing. I’m very strict on my nieces and my little brother. They have to listen to clean versions of music. Even my music. … Don’t you think it’s strange, though? I used to see Eminem in concert and people were bringing their little brother or whatever. Nobody stops them and says [she adopts a posh English accent], ‘Would you stop swearing, Eminem, for loads of money?’ I don’t get it, I don’t get it.” 

– Nicki Minaj did a great interview with the UK Guardian and talked about lots of feminist-y themes, including the scrutiny she’s put under for being a woman who sings some really “dirty” lyrics. Nicki talks about how she knows those two little girls on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” — Sophia Grace and Rosie — who rap clean versions of her songs have brought her a lot of attention, but that doesn’t make her kids’ singer. I love this woman. [Guardian UK]

This morning, Nicki Minaj visited the Elvis Duran radio show, and she wore this outfit. It reminded us a lot of something we would have worn on the first day of third grade. Is that a good thing or a bad thing? Who can say? You can. (Listen to her interview with Elvin here!)

Nicki Minaj has rocked some pretty imaginative looks, none of which I would commit to wearing myself, so this will be a first: I’m kind of loving the long, crazy-voluminous light green hair she’s sporting in the video for her latest song, “Starships.” My Little Pony-inspired hair has been literally everywhere for the past year or so, some interpretations more successful than others, so her neon hue isn’t that much of a departure from what’s on trend. This is such an eye-catching look, I can’t help but picture it on my head. With my pale skin, it would probably send me straight into Beetlejuice territory, but maybe it’s worth a shot… What do you think? Have I lost my mind, or is this something about this verdigris strangely appealing? [Just Jared]

Here’s Ricky Martin and Nicki Minaj in a new ad series for M.A.C.’s Viva Glam collection. All sales from their lip conditioner (Ricky’s) and lipstick (Nicki’s) go toward helping families impacted by HIV and AIDS, so it’s a great cause. But aside from that, this ad just makes me really, extremely happy. Look at Ricky Martin lift that lipstick! [M.A.C.]

Tobias Fünke, take note: Nicki Minaj has gone and gotten herself thoroughly blued. She’s a touch more greenish than Tobias, so I don’t suppose she’ll be much of a threat to his very important role in the Blue Man Group. I actually think it looks nice on Nicki, especially with her pastel pink hair, but no word yet on the reason behind this skin color switch … aside from Vogue, of course. She’s really doing her best to pass Gaga on the road to Crazytown, huh? [Refinery29]

  • Bravo’s “Watch What Happens Live” tried so hard to get Lil’ Kim to talk trash about Nicki Minaj.

Has Jay-Z Been Moonlighting As Nicki Minaj?

File this one under convincing cases for the existence of the Illuminati: Vice took Nicki Minaj’s video for her new single “Super Bass” and slowed it down, only to discover that it sounds pitch-perfectly like … Jay-Z. You have to hear it to believe it because it’s uncanny, down to the Hov’s recognizable style and pace. A commenter went ahead and took the courtesy of speeding up a Jay-Z song to compare, and the results are alarming. I’m no conspiracy theorist, but hell if this isn’t spooky! Check out both videos for yourself, after the jump, and let me know what you think in the comments. [Vice] Keep reading »

Nicki Minaj’s “Stupid Hoe” Video Plumbs New Depths Of Ugh

Maybe I am just old, finally. That would be the most reassuring explanation for Nicki Minaj’s seizure-inducing music video for “Stupid Hoe,” a song about … uh … some stupid hoe?

It’s a catchy, poppy rap that’s mostly titillating for being denigrating to women. (Although I’ll admit, “I’m Angelina / you Jennifer / come on, bitch, you see where Brad at” is really clever.) But it’s really the video that’s worth paying attention to: Nicki Minaj’s crazy-colored hair and lipstick schtick is trotted out again and in this video, she takes a Britney-esque turn by writhing inside a cage wearing fishnets. Oh, and there’s a lot of butts.

Lots to look at, at least. It’s visually interesting, but kind of the same way the inside of a Forever 21 is visually interesting: sensory overload, then forgettable. What say you? [FlavorWire]
