Why Nicki Minaj is the Most Annoying Person in Music Right Now
Am I the only one who really, really hates Nicki Minaj? You'd think so based on only a smattering of anti-Nicki talk on ye ole interwebz, compared to a torrent of anti Ke-dollarsign-ha fury and all the hate of other comparable slutwave artists.
No, no, Nicki: Fuck you.
For example: There are a mere 1,500 members of the "I hate Nicki Minaj" Facebook group whereas over 5,000 hate Ke-dollarsign-ha and two anti Katy Perry groups have 4,000-plus members each.
Yet there absolutely is no more annoying personality in current popular music than Ms. Minaj. Her fashion, her flow, her dumb little voices, her stupid fucking name -- Nicki Minaj is the trashiest, most annoying act going.
Here's a complete catalog of why...
Her Stupid Fucking Name
Yes, I prefer the classic double-K spelling of Nikki but that's not really my issue. We even have a Nicki around the office and she's OK. But Minaj? This chick's real name is Onika Tanya Maraj, which sounds like it could do the job. Instead, she switched a few letters to make it sound vaguely dirty -- Ménage obviously being a French loanword co-opted to mean threesome. It's trashy as hell, and every time I hear it I think it sounds like a really dumb pun. At the very least it makes it impossible to take her seriously.
Yes, lots of pop tarts play the hoochie game. It sells, I get it.
However, it's doubly annoying that Nicki goes and gives Vibe a quote about how she doesn't want or need to whore it up. Not true -- starting with that annoying name.
Speaking of her claims about not using sex...
Her Lack of Respect for Her Obvious Direct Influences
This is an obvious shot at ladies like Lil' Kim who is too old, deaf and incarcerated to play the part of competitor anymore anyway. You're basically the only chick in the game right now, Nicki, so, please, show a little fucking respect for the person you stole your entire black Barbie image and girly-girl flow from.
Speaking of her flow...
