Peep the clip of Steven Tyler’s comments that set Nicki off:

Was Steven Tyler out of line with his comments? Or did Nicki read too much into it?

Speak on it.


  1. I guess Nicki isn’t intelligent enough to grasp what he was trying to say. He’s not saying she wouldn’t have liked Bob Dylan because she’s black. He’s saying she wouldn’t have liked him because she doesn’t know what real music is. Hell, look at the crappy stuff she puts out and her entire image. It’s a joke and no one expects her to know real music when she sees it. Not even Steven Tyler.

  2. She has some nerve calling Steven Tyler a racist when she’s racist to her own people! She did call black women nappy headed ho-s on her own song!!!!! Then she ate fried chicken on stage!!!! Shut up and go away you coon!!!! You’ve disrespected your own people SEVERAL TIMES.

    1. COSIGN! That’s why I can’t understand how black women stan so hard for her. She clowns us on a consistent basis. She doesn’t even want to look like a black woman. Now she wants to pull the race card? No ma’am.

  3. Damn Nicki is falling off. Hard! She’s had a bad few weeks and now her album sales are terrible. My how the mighty have fallen!

  4. We need to put Barbee on suicide watch because it’s not a good look when even Nicki’s biggest fan is struggling to defend her. Somebody’s 15 mins are ending. Can’t say I’m shocked either. That’s why it pays to be YOURSELF and have some real TALENT. Nicki struggles in both of those areas.
