Nicki Minaj is one of the most successful female rappers of today’s music industry, but she can’t seem to escape Iggy Azalea questions in her interviews since she seemingly shaded Iggy during her BET Awards acceptance speech.
However, now journalists are starting to call her out about it and they claim she got “rude” when she was asked about Iggy on the red carpet at the AMAs.
Page Six writes:
Liz Hernandez of “Access Hollywood” lashed out at the pop star Monday, following Minaj’s “disrespectful” behavior at the American Music Awards.
“Never in the workplace has someone been so disrespectful to me as Nicki Minaj yesterday. I feel embarrassed to have supported her as a fan,” tweeted Hernandez, who covered the AMAs red carpet.
A source tells Page Six Minaj was “very rude” to press on the red carpet at Sunday night’s awards show.
We’re told Minaj, 31, got especially heated when reporters brought up her rumored foe, Iggy Azalea. The “Anaconda” rapper and Azalea, 24, reportedly have beef stemming from Minaj’s BET Awards speech being seen as a dig against Azalea’s work.
Iggy also took home two AMAs.
So wait! Let me get this straight! You know there’s no love lost there, but you bring the chick’s name, and wonder why Nicki was heated? Really?
I wish Nicki would just adopt a blank face and wait for the next question, rather than acting out and giving these wannabe journalists fodder to use her name for some exposure!
Nicki should have never shaded that culture vulture because now they won’t let her forget it.
Here is an idea stop asking Nicki about Iggy. Don’t play stupid you know they don’t get along so as far as I’m concerned you asking for rude behavior.
She’s mad because she had to work hard to get where she is today and Iggy got on and gets all these awards because she’s white. I don’t blame her for being annoyed by white privilege.
She doesn’t want to talk about Iggy and she shouldn’t have to. Unlike Iggy, Nicki has already proven herself. She’s gone platinum, can actually rap, and took the time to build a solid following. She shouldn’t have to talk about someone who is trying to get where she already is.
Why didn’t they do all this caping when Kim was going in on Nicki? Oh that’s right. Nicki isn’t white.
Who is Nicki? These young artist need to learn to respect one another and stop all of the childish sh*t! Nicki, is paid and still got a f$%K up attitude…this is how lil Kim felt with you Nicki! STOP THE MADNESS!
I’m a huge Kim fan and never really cared for Iggy but I think you’re reaching. Kim and Nicki’s beef was Hip Hop. They took their issues and put it on wax like strong women in Hip Hop do. Neither one of them ran to the media and played the victim card like Iggy does. And the media damn sure didn’t defend either one of them when all of it went down either. Iggy gets treated like a defenseless, white snowflake. It’s beyond pathetic and I can be honest and call it like it is even if I don’t like Nicki.
Umm Iggy is nothing special. She won’t even be relevant in a few years.
I’m not a iggy fan but I find it very funny that people are accepting Nicki behavior but when little kim was acting this way a lot of people told lil kim to stop being dramatic and give nicki a chance cause there’s room for female MCs where’s the room for iggy?? Oh she’s white I guess there’s none!!!
Why are you wearing a cape for a white woman? Do you think Iggy needs you to hop on here and defend her when white music executives and the white media has that covered? I see some of you learned nothing from the Mike Brown and Trayvon situation. You’re a disgrace. And stop comparing what happened with Kim to this. Iggy is a culture vulture. Period!
Yes because Iggy is so oppressed!!!! LMAO.

any black person who defends Iggy in here is an idiot. She is the same vulture who rapped about being your slave master. Look it up idiots!
They’re just saying all that because they don’t like Nicki. They can’t put aside their dislike of Nicki and be honest about what all this is really about.
Never really been into Nicki’s music but I may have to buy her album this time. All this defending of some talentless, overhyped great white hope by blacks and whites has left a nasty taste in my mouth.
Some of y’all are so ridiculous. Look, people don’t dislike Iggy because she’s a white rapper. Hell, we damn near crowned Eminem one of the greatest rappers of all time, and he’s white. I love Fergie and could tolerate Kesha. The problem with Iggy is she’s not being herself. Instead she’s pretending to be a black woman from Atlanta, and her silly a-s is really from Australia. She was originally a pop singer but switched over to rap because she wasn’t talented enough to shine amongst girls who were better than her. So she walked her corny a-s right on over to rap because she knew there wasn’t much competition. And she was right. Sadly, not enough people can see through her BS. I was done with her when she made that slave master reference pre-Fancy. She doesn’t respect our culture. And lastly, she can’t even rap. At least Eminem takes the culture seriously enough that he actually worked on his skills and became a beast which earned respect. Iggy won’t even do the work. She’s ok with just getting by with her whiteness. It’s hard to respect someone like that.
