Nicki Minaj has attacked Kanye West for having racial double standards and rapping about successful black men dating white women.
Speaking in the November issue of Marie Claire magazine, the Anaconda rapper spoke in defence of black women and feelings of inadequacy.
The 33-year-old rapper specifically called out Kanye West’s hypocrisy in the song Gold Digger where he joked about leaving a black partner for a white one but then actually doing it with Kim Kardashian West, The Mirror reports.
I’m so tired of black women feeling that when our men get rich, they’re going to leave them for a woman of a different race.
It wasn’t funny when Kanye said [in Gold Digger], ‘When he get on, he’ll leave your ass for a white girl’, and Kanye happens to be with a white girl now. It wasn’t funny when he said it; it was the fucking truth.
Kim Kardashian wasn’t the only one in the firing line though and Minaj attacked X-Factor judge Sharon Osbourne for praising the Kim’s naked selfie despite condemning Minaj for appearing scantily clad.
Osbourne had described Minaj’s outfit in the Anaconda promo cover as a ‘cheap porno cover of a DVD’ but called Kim’s famous nude selfie ‘inspiring’.
Nicki noted the hypocrisy saying:
So it wasn’t trashy and raunchy when a white woman did it but it was when a black woman did it?Advertisement
When Kim Kardashian’s naked picture came out (Sharon) praised it and my fans attacked her for being such a hypocrite.
It’s quite pathetic and sad but that is my reality and I’ve gotten accustomed to just shutting it down.
Minaj finished her piece by saying that she worries young girls are marrying for money and that they should aim to be successful without the help of a man.
