Apparently, Nicki Minaj has an issue with any sort of criticism of her work.
According to radio personality Charlamagne Tha God, who does Power 105’s popular morning show The Breakfast Club, the rap superstar got upset when he called her “Anaconda” single “corny.” After, she called his superiors at the station and vowed to never appear on the show again.
“Me and Nicki Minaj, I got love mad love for Nicki Minaj, even though she ain’t f*cking with me right now,” Charlamagne said on his podcast, The Brilliant Idiot. “She unfollowed me on Twitter. She’s made calls to people in radio, people that I work for, and said she’s never coming on The Breakfast Club again.
“I know she got upset when I said I thought ‘Anaconda’ was corny,” he added. “But, my exact synopsis on ‘Anaconda’ when it first came out was, ‘I’m not really feeling this record. It’s not for me. It’s for girls, it’s for kids, it’s for people who like to shake their ass.’ I said when the video comes out, I will probably appreciate this song more. But I said, ‘This song is going to work, I just think its corny.’ That’s what I said. Then, when the BET Awards came around, I said I think Iggy Azalea should have won Best Female Hip Hop Artist at the BET Awards ’cause she has had a better year than Nicki Minaj thus far. I still feel that way. I also said during that time period that Nicki Minaj is the King of New York because when I saw her perform at Summer Jam, I’m like, ‘Yo, she really own that motherf*cking stage.’ She had the records… she was really dominating. If being the King of New York still means something, she was the King of New York. Therefore I’m an objective fan. We’ve talked about Stans before. Stans cannot see anything wrong with their favorite artists.”
