Nicki Minaj might be one of the most successful female rappers to ever do it, but with success of a female entertainer always comes the diva rumors. And according to gossip that has been surrounding Nicki since she became a huge pop star, Nicki isn’t the easiest person to work with. It’s been regularly reported that Nicki gives her staff a very hard time behind the scenes. Rumors suggest the head barbie’s attitude is notrocious and it’s been said that she regularly shouts insults at her staff when she’s stressed. Nicki might have confirmed these rumors herself in her own documentary as she wasn’t very friendly with her wardrobe stylist in a couple of scenes, not to mention other artists have already complained about her backstage diva behavior that led one artist to have a Twitter rant.
So many aren’t shocked to learn that her Hairstylist has jumped shipped. Terrence Davidson released a public statement announcing he would be no longer be working with Nicki, but he claims in the statement that it’s all due to him wanting to “explore new opportunities” in his career. However, whispers suggest it’s because Nicki was just too difficult to work with.
Here’s the report from Celebuzz:
Davidson, who has also worked with Jennifer Hudson and Mary J. Blige, said he was leaving Minaj, 30, to “reenergize” his creativity.
“I would like to inform the media and supporters that I’ve decided to step away as hair stylist and wig creator for Nicki Minaj. It has been an amazing experience offering me a chance to express my creativity and exhibit my love for the art form of wig design. I have decided to part ways from Nicki Minaj because I would like to explore other opportunities within my own brand and reenergize my creativity through work in fashion editorial, beauty consultations, media personality, “how-to” lectures and hair show development. I am very proud of the body of work built with Nicki Minaj and I appreciate the support over the years from fans who¹ve expressed love for my craft. Look forward to seeing me larger than life in 2013.”
A source close to Davidson told Celebuzz that he quit following “a series of derogatory statements” by the “Starships” singer and her management.
In related news, Nicki might be beefing with Mariah Carey, feeling like the industry is against her, and still not too thrilled about that snub from the Grammys; However, the female rapper still has some good news to celebrate.
She took to her Twitter account the other day to tell her fans that her Macy’s fragrance was the top-selling fragrance over the Holidays according to the mega department store brand.
Barbz, I am happy to announce that the Pink Friday fragrance was the #1 new launch @ Macy’s this past December/Holiday Season =) Thank you!
