For Nicki Minaj, this year has been rife with feuds with other industry players with causes ranging from boyfriend vs ex bf rants, misunderstood tweets, and the music awards. Just last month, Nicki Minaj called out Miley Cyrus while giving her acceptance speech for the Best Hip-Hop Video award at the VMA awards saying, “And now back to this b**ch that had a lot to say about me the other day in the press. Miley, what’s good?”
This was following Miley’s input on a negative statement Nicki Minaj had made on Twitter about the VMA awards being racist. This was during an interview with the New York Times. The following is an excerpt.
“You [Nicki Minaj] made it about you. Not to sound like a bitch, but that’s like, “Eh, I didn’t get my V.M.A”.
However, before the feud with Miley, Nicki Minaj and beau Meek had been embroiled in an altercation with Drake, after Mill said Drake couldn’t write his own raps. Diss tracks from both sides quickly abound. But the rhetoric was toned down after Mill stated on Instagram that the beef had a negative impact on his career and that he was taking the high road. The following is an excerpt of his statement as reported by IB Times.
“We really only focusing on making it out that’s the only war we fighting…I’m not entertaining no rap/real beef over drake s/o rapper! I can’t fall for the oldest trick in the book and I never shoulda entertained it bcuz it won’t bring me no money or success.. Ima take blame for it even tho ‘I can stand’ anything I do or say and n—— know”.
The message was later on deleted.
Fast forward to current events, Drake and Serena Williams have reportedly been spotted getting cozy. According to Hollywood Life, the two were caught kissing at the Wimbledon tennis tournament in July and just a few weeks ago, photographed having dinner at an upscale restaurant.
However, it has been reported that Nicki Minaj believes Drake, her ex, is only dating Serena as he can’t have her. This is according to the site.
However, according to a source who spoke to Hollywood Life, it is unlikely Serena will ever try to publicly prove a point to Nicki Minaj, and this is the reason why.
“She’s from Compton, Calif. Her battles are won on the streets or on the court”.
