Nicki Minaj Admits She Lied About Bisexuality To Get Attention And Develop Fan Base

When Nicki Minaj first stepped on the Hip Hop scene, she originally pushed the typical aggressive in your face sexuality that most female rappers continue to perpetrate. It’s always been understood that most up and coming female rappers feel like they must sell sex to sell records, and Nicki originally thought the image would get her to the forefront of Hip Hop. Of course, this is where the Lil Kim comparisons originated, and eventually the epic beef between Lil Kim and the Head Barbie. Along with the skimpy (or lack of) clothes, comes the typical sexuality of the female rapper and female entertainer, and that is of course bisexuality. In Nicki’s first set of interviews, when the subject of bisexuality came up, some suggest she made it quite clear that she was sexually attracted to other women. Here’s a snippet of the Details Magazine interview that started the rumors of Nicki Minaj’s bisexuality:

Q: As an openly bisexual rapper, do you think hip-hop is getting more gay-friendly?
A: I think the world is getting more gay-friendly, so hip-hop is too. But it’s harder to imagine an openly gay male rapper being embraced. People view gay men as having no street credibility. But I think we’ll see one in my lifetime.

And in an interview with Complex Magazine:

“When I rap, it’s just an extension of how I speak, and that’s how I talk. If you don’t like it, don’t listen. I’m also not going to explain something just because I said it in a rap. Take what you want from it. [In the press] I didn’t say [I don’t like women]. I said I don’t have sex with women. I don’t have sex with men right now either. If [bisexual is] what they wanna call me, then fine.”

The confusion for most people also stems from the fact that Nicki has rapped about women sexually in many of her rap verses. And in Usher’s song Little Freak, the lyrics were unmistakeably clear that she was attracted to women.

Despite that, Nicki’s still pretty much backed down from the rumors. And now she’s admitted that she only fueled the allegations and allowed the bisexual label just for attention.

Here’s a snippet of a recent interview with Rolling Stones (the latest issue), in which Nicki admits the Bisexual bit was just for attention and developing a fan base:

Early in her career Minaj claimed to be bisexual, but now says she just did that to get attention. “I think girls are sexy,” she says. “But I’m not going to lie and say that I date girls.”

In related news, it appears that Nicki’s latest controversy has led to her voting records being exposed. As we recently reported, Nicki Minaj drew outrage and even death threats from many as she was heard endorsing Mitt Romney for President and labeling herself as a Republican on a recent track. Well Gawker just confirmed that those claims couldn’t be true. Especially since Nicki isn’t even registered to vote.


  1. Of course she lied. Nicki is a liar. Always has been. She even lied on her own father for sympathy press. She said he abused her mother and said she was lying through her teeth. He could be lying but this chick stays getting caught in lies, so I doubt it.

    1. she is not a liar she is an entrainer u have never met her to say she is a liar dont judge her on wats being said I mean really who are any of yal to judge stop hating because she is beautiful and done stood out fron all tge other female rappers smh some people needs a reality check

      1. Thank you!! That’s what I’ve been saying… There’s no need to dicriminate and hate on someone so publicly. If you don’t like her that much ignore her. Don’t pay any of her stuff any attention. You’ll find it’s easier than stressing about typing some unnecessary hate message.

  2. I never believed her in the first place. It’s obvious she’s dating her hypeman and has been for years. It’s sad, but these female rappers and singers feel like they have to appear to be a certain way to be successful.

    1. How do you not believe in a person? She’s still here, and a singer no matter who does or does not believe in her… It’s called entertainment for a reason guys. Who takes lyrics seriously these days? It’s meant to entertain and tell a story, whether its true or not is irrelevant. You take from the song what you want to, not what they want you to in the end. So it’s not really about believing in the artist, it’s about believing in the entertainment value of a message written by a person who’s paid to entertain.

  3. LMAO I knew this heffa wasn’t registered to vote. I swear she does everything for attention. I tried to give her a chance, but she always shows me why I never really got into her music. She’s annoying and lies about every damn thing.

  4. Oh goodness. Is she honest about anything? I guess it won’t matter because her fans are die hards. Not sure why, but they are.

    1. Nicki’s fans are diehards because she doesn’t care if they’re different or the same. She values everyone for them, not for their societal value in terms of race or riches… She doesn’t care about that. She’s about representing those who can’t fight for themselves, she’s about standing up for yourself, and being a role model to a new generation of young adults. You may not personally like her, but she makes everyone feel like everyone is supposed to be equal… That just because you’re different doesn’t mean you’re not just as valuable and important. Showing young adults that there’s something to aspire to.

      1. So let me guess, you probably believe that NOW since she is in Hollywood doing the “Hollywood thing” that she likes whites too,huh?

        If so, hahahhaahahah@ that. A leopard doesn’t change it’s spots. It isn’t like she is in a position to call whitey “crackas” and “honkeys” and “peckerwoods” like she used to. She like’s white money too. But if you’re white,thats all you can do for her is give her your bread and cheer her on!

        *sips tea*

        1. Listen, names are just that, and don’t think it’s gonna stop. There are a bunch of people on this globe, average joe and famous b-tches, that use all of those cliché and taboo words. Just because she’s using those words doesn’t mean she firmly 100% believes in their derogatory meaning. I call people a f-g all the time. Doesn’t mean anything. Just saying…

  5. LMAO is anyone surprised though? I mean seriously, chick won’t even come out the house without one of those horrid lacefront wigs. Of course she’s a damn liar.

    1. So how does her wearing a wig make her a liar, and justify your judgement of someone? Colorful wigs or not, she’s got talent. If a wig is gonna stop you from understanding her music and her lyrics, and maybe even liking her, then I feel sorry for you. You’re in for some surprises in the future.

  6. So many bitter people on this comment thread. Look, she lied. What’s new? Celebs lie all the time about their sexuality. It’s part of the game because either they’re hiding or wanting to tap into the gay community. Say what you want about her, but Nicki has had more success in a couple of years than most of your faves. What is Lil Kim doing now huh? Oh yeah, making sandwiches and rolling blunts! You all will deal! 🙂

    1. You can keep hiding behind those smileys all you want chile…I know you’re behind the computer screen foaming at the mouth. Need a hug boo? LOL.

    2. Oh yeah and a mixtape that’s laughably insulting Nicki, titled Black Friday hahaha… Ah, Nicki the best. People just don’t wanna see that. They wanna compare her to other people to make themselves feel better. Talk sh-t about her to make themselves feel better… To make it seem like ignoring her will make her go away… Haterade hurts only the drinker these days, just look at Lil Kim. They did the same thing to Eminem when he emerged. Said he wouldn’t make it, wasn’t worth it. That he was in the wrong genre and that he should go back home… That he had no talent. Now look at him. One in the same with everyone else in the genre. Nicki will do the same, and become one o the legends in the end. Then the haters can’t do nothing about it, cept listen to her music an like it, just like they did with Eminem.

  7. Nicki is bi-polar. There is going to be major outburst coming from her very soon. She has some real issues. She doesn’t know how to handle fame and is a puppet.

  8. See, I REALLY like Nicki Minaj, I’m like one of her biggest barbz so it’s hard for me to read stuff like this, telling me she’s lying. I hear she lies alot and that, and I dont know if the people who are saying she lies are lying, or whetether she just tells the lies herself if you get what I’m saying? Anyways, I love this girl to bits, but I’m a little unsure if she’s a liar? xx

  9. @ Roman…… Lil Kim ATE HER A** OUT! BOTTOMLINE! IF U DIDN’T KNOW WHAT I WAS TALKIN ABOUT, the broad wouldn’t be tryin’ to “CHANGE HER IMAGE” so she can be “TAKEN SERIOUSLY”, as she says! @ the end of the day, BIGGIE will SMASH Lil Wayne, and Kim will BUST…….. and DID bust, in Nicky Ninja! Bullsh*t ain’t button but CHEWED…….UP………GRASS! That is all the dookie of a Bull is! So if you choose to remain with yourfeet stuck in a quicksand full of boo boo, which is your choice btw, look @ the fact that Lil Wayne wanted to be on BIGGIE album, Biggie not ON Lil Wayne album! And don’t gimme that cuz he dead bull cuz a brotha from the SAME CITY Big from: Aint on none of Lil Wayne albums either! I think ITA that cat WHO married to the COLDEST BLACK FEMALE R&B artist out there! If ANYTHING, Lil Wayne made a statement on BET and said Jay-Z is his role model. And since his role model freestyles and dont edite, then he had been practicing the same! Kim taught Nicky a** a few things, and she has learned from them! Touré supposed to learn from those before you. Now, lets sit back and see how she incorporates this into her…….”Newfound Image!”. LoL

    1. Listen you can sit there and spout your sh-t all you want about Nicki. I know exactly what you’re talking about and it’s not phasing me, or Nicki, one bit. In case you haven’t noticed, all artists go through a change after being in the spot light. It’s natural to do, and pretty much essential. If Nicki was worried about all the haters, she wouldn’t have put out two albums and an EP the way she did. She would have changed after putting her first mainstream album out. HAVE YOU EVEN HEARD ANY OF HER MIX TAPES? Kim fans make me laugh. They choose the one song with Kim in it to make fun of Nicki and her fans. Doesn’t even make any sense. Besides that, Nicki actually changed her image in the first place to put out her mainstream album. Her mixtape material is what she’s actually heading towards, with an extra step towards progression. I’m sorry you feel that changing her image is a bad thing; it’s what entertainers do. Musicians aren’t any different. I’m just gonna leave this to Nicki’s words. “If she ain’t a Nicki fan than the b-tch deaf dumb.”
