Over the weekend, Nicki Minaj found herself in a controversy involving an artist she has previously worked with. The feature of a cover story in the latest issue of Marie Claire, Minaj made comments about Kanye West, Kim Kardashian and Kanye’s 2005 hit, “Gold Digger.”

“I’m so tired of black women feeling that when our men get rich, they’re going to leave them for a woman of a different race,” Minaj, 33, said. “It wasn’t funny when Kanye said, ‘When he get on, he’ll leave your a-- for a white girl,’ and Kanye happens to be with a white girl now.”

While Minaj’s comments can be seen as a slight jab at Kanye, 39, and Kim, 35, it more so sounded like Nicki was just saying it was a funny coincidence that West ended up with Kim. Still, websites such as the Daily Mail and Cosmopolitan decided to run with the story, with Cosmo writing, “Nicki Minaj slams Kanye West over ‘Gold Digger’ lyrics.”

This led Minaj to call out Cosmo over its headline and questioned the use of the word “slams.” According to Nicki, she was only saying that Kanye was the one who said it first. “‘Slams’ a man/genius who gave me one of the biggest looks of my career? I said he wasn’t kidding, he was speaking the truth about [the] industry.”

The “looks” Minaj is referring to is most likely Kanye featuring the “Anaconda” rapper on his album, “My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy.” Nicki lent her vocals to the song “Dark Fantasy” and delivered what many call her best verse ever on the song “Monster.” West was also featured on Minaj’s song “Blazin’” from her album “Pink Friday.”
