Rapper Gloria Velez has added on to her recent controversial views of Nicki Minaj and said the Young Money star is using her bi-sexuality as a marketing ploy.
According to an interview from Major Moves DVD, Velez compares Minaj to pop star Lady Gaga.
“I think she should be her. It’s okay to be a little costume-ish on stage but let people see who you really are. You’re trying to be like Lady Gaga a little bit. You’re trying to pretend that you like women but you really [like] d*ck. Just be you….I honestly don’t like her music but to each his own.” (Hip Hop Wired)
When asked about being a bi-sexual rapper earlier this year, Minaj talked about the boundaries between straight and gay men.
“I have a lot of freedom to be crazy. I can rap in a London accent, make weird faces, wear spandex, wigs, and black lipstick,” Minaj explained in an interview. “I can be more creative than the average male rapper. And I can show my boobs. Guys can’t do that…I think the world is getting more gay-friendly, so hip-hop is too. But it’s harder to imagine an openly gay male rapper being embraced. People view gay men as having no street credibility. But I think we’ll see one in my lifetime.” (Details)
Last spring, Velez dropped her “Roger Dat” diss track toward Minaj.
“I’m in a six-speed drop and I’m sick with the clutch / I’m bout to go in on this bitch like a d*** in her guts / Come on Nicki? Is you licking or what? / How many silicone shots you gonna stick in your butt?” Velez opens the freestyle with. She goes on to throw several jabs at Minaj, poking fun at her alleged plastic surgery enhancements, comparing her flow to a rapper with Tourette’s syndrome, and even accuses her of providing sexual favors to land a record deal. “It’s Glo, Murda Mami, strapped up, emergency / I wasn’t gonna do it, but bitch you keep urging me / You better run and use extreme urgency / brain f***ed up, too much plastic surgery,” Velez spits. “No matter how many times you bat your eye lashes / It ain’t gonna take away from the fact that you trash-ess,” she later raps, before adding: “Remember you came out a Lil Kim clone? / then you started sounding like your got Tourette’s syndrome.” (Baller Status)
Recently, Minaj took on the “haters” with a personal message to them.
“There are some that say something positive,” Nicki said in an interview. “You should be happy I’m here even though I’m showing you b*tches how to do it. But umm, I get more love than hate. So you know, it’s expected when people see there’s one person getting shine, it makes them feel unhappy with themselves. The small minded people feel unhappy with themselves. The intelligent girls take the things that they like from me and my journey and apply it to their journey. If I had it my way, that’s what they’d all do. Everyone is not going to like Nicki Minaj. Everyone’s not going to like the way I look or what I do but I think if you’re smart you’d take from me and figure out why everyone is talking about me. That’d be the ‘smart’ thing to do. I don’t think they know how to express that so they express it with anger, jealousy and hatred and that consumes them and I’m still here.” (VIBE TV)
