Looks like Nicki Minaj can add yet another magazine cover to her resume as she promotes her upcoming studio album, “The Pinkprint.”

Nicki covers the latest issue of Billboard, but when a writer for the publication thought they would be able to get her to discuss her rumored foe Iggy Azalea, things got awkward.

In fact, Nicki didn’t even answer the question.

Rap-Up writes:

When asked about fellow rap diva Iggy Azalea, Nicki gives the writer a “withering, wordless stare.” The article mentions that when an Iggy song came over the studio speaker, a member of Nicki’s team turned it off.

While Nicki didn’t have any words for Iggy, she had some kind words for Beyonce. She says:

“There’s something about her work ethic that always made me feel like no matter how hard stuff gets, I’m not allowed to complain. Some women give me the feeling that where there’s a will, there’s a way.”

  1. Aww I love that my faves support each other. And Nicki shouldn’t have to talk about Iggy in her interviews. Until Iggy can go platinum, she should not be placed in the same sentence with Nicki.

  2. But why did they even ask Nicki about her anyway. I really don’t think Nicki has beef like that with Iggy. She’s too busy trying to extend the success Iggy will never have. Fancy is all Iggy will ever accomplish.

  3. LMBO. She handled it like I would have. I got another soon to be platinum album coming out and you’re asking me about some lackluster wannabe who can’t even go gold?

  4. Nicki is bothered by Iggy for a reason. She just better make sure this new album does well. Because the industry is a revolving door, can’t stay hot forever.

    1. But Iggy’s album isn’t even doing well. I think your advice is misdirected. Nicki has proven herself already.

    2. Yeah and the reason is the white media keeps trying to make Iggy something she isn’t…the queen of hip hop. Bish can’t even rap. Lmao.
