Rapper Nicki Minaj has claimed that, while she is not offended by people comparing her to Lady Gaga, it does annoy her a little. Nicki admitted that she believes that Lady Gaga is very talented and should be very proud of what she has achieved in the music industry, but claims that the two are completely different artists.
Minaj explained to ABC’s Nightline, "Offends me, no. Irks me, yes. We are in completely different lanes. First of all, I'm a rapper. I'm from southside Jamaica, Queens. I could say some really crazy lyrics right now, but I won't. Why don't I turn the cameras around and ask you?"
She added, "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.”
Nicki continued, "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."
Nicki Minaj recently admitted that, if she could do a collaboration with anyone, she would love to duet with Beyoncé.
