Nicki Minaj always says exactly what’s on her mind — straight, no chaser.
In a recent interview with Marie Claire, the rapper made it clear she has no time for racist double standards. She spoke out about the unfair criticism she often receives that white women are largely exempt from. Using Kim Kardashian West’s infamous nude selfie as an example, she told the mag, “When Kim Kardashian’s naked picture came out, [Sharon Osbourne] praised it, and my fans attacked her for being such a hypocrite.”
Nicki was referring to the time Osbourne tweeted out her own nude selfie, writing that she was “inspired” by Kardashian West and felt “#Liberated,” meanwhile, she criticized the cover image of Minaj’s 2014 single “Anaconda,” saying on her show The Talk, “That looks like a cheap porno cover of a DVD… I love women’s bodies. I love nudity, but that is cheap.”
Nicki continued, “So it wasn’t trashy and raunchy when a white woman did it, but it was when a black woman did it? It’s quite pathetic and sad, but that is my reality, and I’ve gotten accustomed to just shutting it down.” This isn’t the first time Minaj spoke out about the injustices she faces as a curvaceous, woman of color.
Just ahead of the 2015 Video Music Awards, Nicki unintentionally sparked a feud with Taylor Swift after not receiving a video of the year nomination for “Anaconda” that year. She wrote on Twitter, “If your video celebrates women with very slim bodies, you will nominated for vid of the year.” Although she wasn’t specifically speaking about Swift, the singer chimed in and added fuel to the fire. Clearly, that hasn’t stopped Nicki Minaj from voicing her opinion on racist double standard.
