Nicki Minaj Talks About Being Compared To Lady Gaga And Being A Role Model [VIDEO]
Rapper Nicki Minaj recently sat down with the crew from ABC's program Nightline and she addressed several issues including being compared to Pop Icon, Lady Gaga. Critics often liken Minaj to Gaga due to their shared love of outrageous costumes and larger-than-life live shows, but Minaj is adamant that she is totally unique. When the question was thrown towards Nicki in regards to how she feels when fans and/or critics compare her to Gaga, she said, "Offends me, no. Irks me, yes. We are in completely different lanes. First of all, I'm a rapper. I'm from southside Jamaica, Queens... Gaga's a fantastic artist, you know, she paved her way. She's opened her own lane. But I think that I have my own lane, and we never cross. Ever."
We played some of the audio on the morning show this morning from this interview and we said that it was quiet obvious that these questions struck a nerve with the rapper. Well now you can see it first-hand. Watch Nicki's facial expressions as she addresses some of these topics.
