Nothing screams “Out of touch” more than hearing some celebrity whine about awards while the social fabric of America is disintegrating around us. While black women are arrested and murdered in their jail cells we have Nicki Minaj crying because she was only nominated for 3 MTV music awards instead of 4.

She took to Twitter to voice these concerns yesterday citing that racism was the reason she wasn’t nominated for video of the year.

Taylor Swift felt a certain typa way about the tweets and responded with her own.


To which Nicki acted dumb and everyone slammed Taylor for being an elitist white feminist {Which I believe she is, but not in this case} You’ll notice the tweet from Nicki above where she said she wasn’t talking about her. I guess my question is “Well then who were you talking about ?” So I definitely Understand WHY Taylor responded. Nicki was trying to be slick and Taylor called it out.

Now its important at this point to list the nominees for this year’s Video of the year nominees:

Beyoncé – “7/11″
Ed Sheeran – “Thinking Out Loud”
Taylor Swift ft. Kendrick Lamar – “Bad Blood”
Mark Ronson ft. Bruno Mars – “Uptown Funk”
Kendrick Lamar – “Alright”

Looking at this roster I’m asking who Nicki was referring to then and what other skinny white girls she was referring to. There were no thin white girls in Kendrick Lamar’s “Alright.” 

Uptown Funk was a bunch of guys playing instruments, dancing and walking around a city block.

We know she couldn’t have been talking about Beyoncé and her girls.

And I watched Ed Sheeran’s “Thinking out Loud” video and it was actually an amazingly choreographed ballroom waltz with a shapely latina woman.

The only video I could find that matched Nicki’s rantings was Taylor Swifts video full of swimsuit models in bikinis, and I’m sure Taylor saw it the same so she responded in the nicest way possible. For the backlash Taylor received I’d like you to consider what the response would have been in Taylor had complained about Nicki receiving an award over her. Nicki would have dragged her for piss, blood, and Michael Jackson’s popcorn.

But I’m not here to defend Taylor. I’m merely wondering why Nicki thought that trashy ass garbage video and equally trashy song about sucking and riding dyck should have gotten her anything but a Pornhub award. And I truly need some answers.

Truth is I’m tired of Nicki, her celebrity entitlement, and her contrived and convenient activism that only happens when MTV doesn’t treat her to the manner that BET has her accustomed to. She’s out here speaking about “black women’s bodies” and she’s all silicone, skin bleaching, and weaves. She JUST stopped wearing blonde wigs, blue contacts, calling herself Barbie, calling us broke bums, voting for Republicans, and talking in a valley girl Vernacular last week, so I’m going to have to get used to this new “activist” we have on our hands. Screaming “Racism” everytime you don’t get nominated for an award just seems disrespectful to the thousands of Americans actually experiencing REAL racism on the job, at police stops, and praying in church. To have to scroll my newsfeed and see Sandra Bland fighting for her life then read about Nicki fighting for her Anaconda video to win video of the year is disheartening to say the least. 


Now I don’t know if it’s that new bum she’s taking care whose sitting around gassing her head up telling her that that trash video she put out deserves a Grammy {U know bums will tell you anything for you to pay their cell phone bill}, but it’s really time for black entertainers to get a grip on reality and what’s important in this world. Stop begging for validation. Stop picking superficial, vapid battles. Stop putting out smut then saying you’re celebrating the female body. Stop using the race card for attention, publicity, and white validation. Use it to bring awareness to real social ills. Not a fuQQin popcorn statue.

Maybe I could roll with Nicki if there was ONE song on her album that was socially relevant, but there isn’t. Or perhaps I’m still pissed she appropriated Malcolm X’s image for her “Looking ass N*gga” cover art. Either way she’s shytting away her relevance fighting to be Queen of the Thots dressing it up as righteousness when it’s anything but.


I know she feels that just because she got young girls to imitate her Sarah Bartman impression that she’s making valid contributions to Qulture…and that’s the whole problem right there! In a year she’ll be publicly apologizing to taylor just to get an invitation back! Concentrate on the art Nicki….not the awards!

Qmunity are y’all rocking with Nicki on this one?

Do MTV awards mean more then BET awards to her?

Do you feel she was slighted by MTV or is she just being a spoiled prima donna?
