So Sophia Grace Brownlee, the little British girl who, along with her blond sidekick, impressed all of YouTube land with her rapping of Nicki Minaj's "Super Bass" (the video has over seven million views to date), got to meet Nicki Minaj on Ellen. The girls wore their princess dresses and Nicki, being Nicki, wore a half-blue-half-blond wig, a Cia.Marítima bikini top, and a skirt that looked like a bedspread from the '70s and everyone hugged and screamed and it was amazing. Watch it now.
Style Battle: Nicki Minaj V. Lil' Kim
The battle between Queens-bred lady rappers Nicki Minaj and Lil' Kim has been raging almost since Minaj hit the scene. And the bigger Minaj gets, so too, does Lil' Kim's ire. Kim has been throwing jabs at Minaj for a while, peeved that Minaj hadn't payed the Queen Bee enough "homage." To be sure, much of Minaj's early style--namely the Barbie fascination and the colored wigs-- was clearly inspired by Kim. Minaj even cribbed Kim's Hardcore LP cover in one of the images she used on her Sucka Free mixtape. For the most part, Minaj has kept quiet in response to Kim's repeated baiting of her in the press, but recently she reached her limit.
