The day after her pop performance on the Grammys, Nicki Minaj released a new song called "Starships." This song motivated Peter Rosenberg to blast Nicki on Hot 97, calling her a Sellout. Two days ago, Nicki premiered her hot new banger "Roman Reloaded" on Hot 97, and decided to address the issue. Check it out.First, listen to the song that put Nicki in the hot seat:
This is what Rosenberg had to say about it:
Though Hip Hop heads are not feeling "Starships," Nicki believes that, "Starships was a monster." This is what she had to say about her song:
Nicki: "To be honest, I feel really, really good. I feel that Hip Hop cares enough that they have something to say. I remember when I was hoping that someone had something to say about me on the radio, or cared enough."Nicki also stressed the fact that, though her hip hop fans aren't enjoying her pop records, she writes her own lyrics. Consequently, the idea of her "selling out" would be a problem if she couldn't deliver songs like "Roman Reloaded," but she can.
Nicki's take on being called a sellout:
Nicki: "I think people sometimes get blown away by the magnitude of the pop stuff, because the pop stuff, it reaches everywhere and then I feel like my Hip Hop fans or Hip Hop culture starts getting a little bit scared that I'm going to leave but this is who I am. I'm not going to change- I'm just adding on to my brand. And if you don't understand that, then it's probably why you don't travel and you don't see the world and I probably can't even have a conversation with you anymore."
#TeamVogueD, what do you all have to say to that?
D'Mor J: "No Style, No Fashion. It's that simple."
