Nicki Minaj Is Not Beefing With Iggy Azalea

“I’ve congratulated Iggy on the success of Fancy, publicly. She should be very proud of that.”

1. When Nicki Minaj accepted the award for Best Female Hip-Hop Artist at Sunday’s BET Awards with a glorious speech, she called attention to the fact that she actually writes her own lyrics, a point many considered a dig at fellow nominee Iggy Azalea.

 

3. Today, Nicki responded to reports of her “beef” with Iggy from outlets like ABC, MTV, and Pitchfork on Twitter. The purpose of her speech, she said, was to celebrate women writers.

I wondered how Lauryn tapped into my brain and wrote an album on love, betrayal, passion, pain, triumph, brokenness.... Did she read minds?

It's the same reason I have a different level of respect for Missy. I know she's a writer and a producer. Women MUST aspire for more.

I've congratulated Iggy on the success of Fancy, publicly. She should be very proud of that. All the women nominated should b proud.

That will never change my desire to motivate women to write. Our voices have to be heard. I hope I inspire up & coming females to do that.
