... Already, the conversation around Queen has been subsumed by an ugly public squabble in which Minaj’s ex Safaree accused her of once stabbing him and she replied by making fun of his hairline. In the middle of the spat, he tweeted,

“stop letting these ppl see you sweat … You too big to act the way you be acting,” which, to be frank, isn’t bad analysis.

Cardi B, meanwhile, has feigned ignorance of Queen’s poorly disguised disses, perhaps sensing that they reflect worse on their speaker than their target.

When Minaj raps on “Hard White” that she “ain’t ever have to strip to get the pole position,”

it’s a clear knock on the former exotic dancer who’s outcharting her lately, but it also undermines Minaj’s broader position that women who use sex appeal and their brains deserve respect.

Rather than attacking the system that has all along made Minaj feel inadequate, she spends her energy building it up and passes her damage right along. Is there a smarter way?

tldr; Nicki is letting how much her flopping/underperformance is getting to her and it makes her look even more desperate and bitter than if she were to just stay shut and take the L.

She is not going down without a fight.

lbr we're all hoping she doesn't go down without one. It'd be too entertaining to not watch.:entrance:

I was about to say the same thing :rip:

At least she makes an event out of it
