Nicki Minaj irked by Lady Gaga comparisons

Nicki Minaj has finally had enough of the Lady Gaga comparisons, so she sat down with Juju Chang on ABC’s Nightline to make her message clear. The fem-cee stated, “First of all, I’m a rapper. First of all, I’m from Southside Jamaica, Queens, and I could say some really crazy lyrics right now, but I won’t.” She also told viewers that while she isn’t offended by the comparisons, they do irk her and she believes that she can’t be compared to Gaga just because of “over the top costumes.” Head over to Vibe.com to see the interview clip for yourself.

Is Nicki really a rapper considering some of her most recent work? Do you feel like Nicki’s older music helps to back up her rap talent, or is she too far “conformed” these days?
