Grammy-winning singer Lady Gaga producer DJ White Shadow has fired a few shots toward Young Money rapper Nicki Minaj and questioned her true worth.
Prior to deleting the initial comment, Shadow went straight at Minaj’s head and called her talentless.
DJ White Shadow has vented his frustrations over Nicki Minaj. The producer, who helped produce Lady GaGa’s third album Born This Way, took to Twitter to blast the rapper. He tweeted: “Ok. Nicki Minaj. F**k you. Get a grip. You are lucky, not talented. Stop. Please stop. XO. DJWS” The message was deleted shortly after. (Digital Spy)
White Shadow followed up the deleted comment with some clarification on his stance toward Nicki.
“Oops didn’t mean to delete that. But I don’t recall what I said, basically it was “come on son” to nicki. Cause you are wack.,” Shadow tweeted November 5th.
“F*ck. What is wrong with the world.”
“You can be judgmental. My views are my own. I am by myself. I don’t hate. It’s not hate, just dislike for poor taste.”
“You forget I am a human with MY own opinions.”
“I am allowed to have a completely independent opinion. Cause I am paul. Not anyone else. And that is my feeling. So goodnight.” (DJ White Shadow’s Twitter)
Over the summer, one of Lady Gaga’s fans called out Minaj for jacking her style.
Nicki Minaj will probably never escape the Lady GaGa comparisons, but it does seems as thought they are starting to get under her skin. The reigning Queen of Hip-Hop was recently heckled by a Lady GaGa fan as she exited an airport. The fan called her a GaGa “rip off” and told her that she “needs to stop copying Lady GaGa.” In the video description it says that Nicki called the overzealous GaGa fan a “b*tch,” but I didn’t hear it. Did you? Glad to see Nicki kept her cool in this situation. Do you agree with the fan, is Nicki a GaGa clone? (All Hip Hop Rumors)
A few months back, the Young Money star addressed the frequent comparisons.
“We are in completely different lanes. First of all, I’m a rapper. I’m from southside Jamaica, Queens,” Nicki said in an interview. “Gaga’s a fantastic artist, you know, she paved her way. She’s opened her own lane. But I think that I have my own lane, and we never cross. Ever. So, you know, I really don’t get the comparison anymore. Our music doesn’t sound the same. Our stage presence is not the same. I just can’t see the similarities.” (“Nightline”)
