Nicki Minaj Called Out Lady Gaga On Twitter And Now It's A Big Debate

Oh Lord.

Ok, let me break this down. So, Nicki Minaj has a song and video with 6ix9ine called, "Fefe."

In 2015, 6ix9ine pleaded guilty to three counts of the use of a child in a sexual performance.

Well on Friday, Pitchfork published a piece, titled, "Nicki Minaj, 6ix9ine, and the Alarming Normalization of Predatory Behavior." It criticized Minaj, saying:

On May 25, 2012, Minaj spoke out against child molesters when she tweeted: “And for the record on sum serious shit, I believe people who abuse children should be stoned to death in public. The end.”

Apparently, this is not “the end.” Rather, it is the beginning of even more questions, chief among them: Will this contradiction between her anti-child-abuse views and her decision to support a child abuser affect her revenue?

Following the article, Nicki tweeted this:

I’m supposed to keep letting these ppl get money to bully me behind the scenes & not say anything. Yikes.

This is what happens when you release a great body of work after they spent millions to ruin you. Lol. 4 albums later still breaking records. #1 in 86 countries after they said it was a wrap. Praise God. He’s about to expose them. They writing about 69 cuz #Queen is flawless.

In a now-deleted tweet, Nicki used Lady Gaga's collaboration with R. Kelly — who has several allegations against him — to say that Pitchfork has a double standard. She highlighted parts of an article Pitchfork wrote when Gaga's "Do What U Want" was released.

Fans were not happy about the callout, whether it was meant to shade Lady Gaga directly or not:

all these ppls collaborated with R Kelly but yet Nicki Minaj choose Lady Gaga : Mario Snoop Dogg Ashanti Lil Wayne Justin Bieber Jennifer Hudson Kid Ink Chance the Rapper Jeremih 2 Chainz Ludacris DJ Snake K. Michelle Kelly Rowland Future Migos Juicy J Jhene Aiko Tinashe https://t.co/1Cm86pKnu7

nicki didn’t have to say any names if she wanted to drag the double standards then just mention the double standards but bringing gaga into it is pointless https://t.co/Hqf24gtEci

Some made the point that Gaga scrapped the video after the R. Kelly controversy surfaced, whereas Nicki did release a music video with 6ix9ine.

Nicki may not be coming for Gaga, but its evident that Nicki wasn’t paying attention during that era. When all that controversy happened with R-Kelly, she scraped the entire project AND the music video. She later released like 6 different versions of the song if yall don’t recall

Lady Gaga: found out about the accusations against R. Kelly, cancelled the music video and promo for the song, released a new version with Xtina. Nicki Minaj: knew about the accusations against 6ix9ine from the beginning, made a song with him, promoted it, takes him on tour.

Others stressed that it wasn't a diss to Gaga, but rather calling out the double standards of the article.

Imagine thinking you can end Nicki... wholetime she didn’t even diss Gaga she was talking about the article praising her! #nickiminajisoverparty https://t.co/2IpxKzR2kt

oh my god leave Nicki alone wtf she didn’t “drag” Gaga, she was trying to make a point about double standards, but obviously you guys take everything to heart and love to tear down women... #WeloveyouNicki

Either way, this situation is messy AF. Let me know your thoughts in the comments below!
