In today's episode of Nicki Minaj Says What?!? Nicki Minaj declares that she wants to set the record straight on her ongoing and probably completely made-up feud with Mariah Carey. The first of three special episodes of "My Truth" on E! premiered on Sunday. And in the opening teaser Nicki said, "I think that Mariah has met her match this time and I don't think she was expecting to meet her match."
Yeah, Mariah met her match all right. Her match in ridiculousness. Is this thing still going on? Because stop it already. I wanted to like Nicki Minaj's music. I really did, at first. But she's totally ruining it for me! This stupid feud is killing Nicki's credibility as a recording artist.
Look, I get it. Nicki Minaj is supposed to be this far-out, eccentric who stirs up controversy. But girlfights? That is so old. There is nothing innovative or new about celeb rivalries -- especially when they're with Mariah Carey! Oh what, she's a DIVA?!? Yeah, we heard. In the 1980s. Next?
What happened to Nicki Minaj? I still remember when she burst onto the scene. She was kind of nuts then, too. But in an interesting way. I'm okay with musicians being controversial and full of attitude. Especially female artists. But that's actually what's so disappointing about Minaj -- her contrived fight with Mariah is a boring waste of time.
Nicki says it's her fans who keep her going. "That relationship that I have with my fans is sometimes the only thing that gets me out of bed. I can be having a horrible day and if I see my fans they make me laugh." Well then, don't let us down! I don't care if Mariah Carey started it (whatever IT is...). I wish Nicki would stop letting her drama upstage what she does best: Her music.
Do you think Nicki Minaj's staged drama gets in the way of her music?
