Nicki Minaj Takes To Twitter To Continue BET Rant – Iggy Azalea
Nicki Minaj continued to talk about female writers and their impact on Hip-Hop after her statements during the BET awards were considered a slight against Iggy Azalea.

On Sunday night while accepting the award for Best Female Hip-Hop Artist, Minaj went on a tear and talked about everything from a near-death experience to other musicians in her field. She said in part, “What I want the world to know about Nicki Minaj is when you hear Nicki Minaj spit, Nicki Minaj wrote it... No, no, no shade.” It was assumed Minaj was referring to rumors Iggy doesn't write many of her songs and instead uses...

At the BET Awards on Sunday night, Donald Sterling and rapper Rick Ross became the butt of some jokes, but Nicki Minaj gave a startling revelation upon winning her fifth award for Best Female Hip-Hop Artist.

She thanked her fellow Young Money rapper Lil Wayne and bragged about writing her own verses, but in a shocking turn of events she revealed that she recently thought she was going to die. She told the crowd, "The other day, literally I didn't tell anybody this, I really thought I was about to die. Like, I was saying my prayers to die. And I didn't even want to call the ambulance be...

20 Of The Dirtiest Rap Songs

20 Of The Dirtiest Rap Songs
Historically, hip-hop has no shortage of raunchiness. For years, hip-hop artists have pushed the boundaries, never being shy about spitting about a 'three-letter word’ – sex, that is. No need to blush yet – that’s what the list of 20 of the dirtiest rap songs is for! The list doesn't include every filthy rap track, but there's definitely a wealth featured in no particular order.

#1 Missy Elliott, "Work It"

Musicians, artists, actors, and celebrities in general tend to have unique personalities. Some of those personalities are so strong that they can be considered divisive – "polarizing" if you will.

Nicki Minaj Goes Soft With 'Pills N Potions' Music Video

June 10th, 2014 3:00pm EDT
Nicki Minaj
Nicki Minaj has turned to slow R&B for her latest single, Pills N Potions, and now the mesmerizing music video has hit the web.

The video appears to be associating drugs with candy (or at least using drugs as if it were candy), as bunnies appear giving pills through PEZ dispensers and evoke the idea of Easter candy. Minaj even puts on bunny ears for a while. She sings, "I'm angry but I still love you / Pills and potions / We're overdosing /Can't stand it, but I still love you."

The video gets surreal as Minaj "cries" metallic waterfalls and sways in front morphing backdrops. The Game ap...

Celebrities Who Have Dyed Their Hair Crazy Colors
Reality star Kylie Jenner dyed her hair partially blue last week, making a stir at the Billboard Music Awards. She arrived on the red carpet with her shoulder length-hair looking as though it had been dipped in an ice blue dye.

Her bold fashion decision wasn't exactly embraced by mom Kris Jenner, particularly since Kylie did it prior to her sister Kim Kardashian's upcoming wedding.

Jenner, 16, told E! News: "One day I was just like, 'I'm going blue'. They're all really p****d. My mom was like 'you look like a Skittle.' I was like, 'I'm gonna have this for two years now that you said that....

Nicki Minaj's recent makeover in which she's ditched the crazy wigs and gone for a more natural look is paying off.

Honda. Ford. Chevy. These are all household names. We see them every day driving to work, or while going to grab a cup of coffee on the corner, or from our office window.

But for those who can afford it, vehicles offer something else - status. And those vehicles are fast and loud, and they grab -no- command attention wherever they go. Whether it's through sleek, formula 1-like styling, or monstrous engines that roar like lions and move like...

Nicki Minaj Shares Sexy Bikini Shots On Instagram And Sparks Rum
Nicki Minaj has been spending some down time in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, this week, and posting tons of selfies to her Instagram page, including a number of sexy shots while wearing a revealing bikini.

But the rapper revealed something else in one of the shots from her vacay -- a ring. On that finger.

Nicki Minaj Posts Odd, Naked Shower Selfies On Instagram
Nicki Minaj posted a series of photos of herself post-shower on Instagram Wednesday. The naked singer is pictured in half body shots with wet hair. She didn't write any captions to explain what was going on. Perhaps a picture is worth a 1,000 words?

Fans were titillated by the shots, with some making some graphic comments about the images.

Minaj has no qualms about sharing racy photos with the world. Back in October she posted topless photos of herself wearing star-shaped, leopard-print pasties.

Meanwhile, the rapper's former hairstylist Terrence Davidson is suing the star for $30 millio...

'American Idol' Recap: New Judges Means A New Show

January 16th, 2014 9:06am EST
American Idol
13 Years in and suddenly 'Idol' seems like it's playing catch-up.

In what it's hoping isn't its unlucky thirteenth season, 'American Idol' attempted yet another reinvention last night, veering farther away from the snide formula that made it such a breakout success all those summers ago. Gone is the ridicule, the delight at disaster and general amateur nature of the show. Instead, it's mostly good contestants and enough sob/inspiration stories to fill a week's worth of Olympics coverage.

Even worse than that, we're getting to know the contestants before they even sing a bar. Banter abound...

Lorde said in the interview about her hit Royals, "Around the middle of last year I started listening to a lot of rap, like Nicki Minaj and Drake, as well as pop singers like Lana Del Rey. They all sing about such opulence, stuff that just didn't relate to me - or anyone that I knew. I began thinking, 'How are we listening to this? It's completely irrelevant.' I basically just wrote what we were all thinking." Complex wrote that Lorde had dissed the mu...

Ellen DeGeneres as Nicki Minaj for Halloween 2013
Ellen DeGeneres has unofficially officially won the 2013 celebrity Halloween costume contest.

The daytime TV host surprised viewers Thursday by showing up wearing a very revealing Nicki Minaj costume.

Ellen's costume was nearly an exact replica of the outfit Minaj wore on her show in late September -- complete with fake boobs.

"I got the whole look down," she told the audience. "I even have the same shoes on. I think I do -- I can't see my feet -- but I think I do.

Nicki Minaj let it all hang out on Halloween in a racy, bondage-like costume. The singer nearly bared all in fishnets, pasties and a studded leather harness around her chest.

She also donned thigh-high vinyl boots and wore handcuffs clipped to her leather-clad bottoms. The singer posted the selfies on Instagram.

Perhaps she's a fan of "Fifty Shades of Grey?"

It isn't the first time Minaj, 30, has showed off her curves on the social networking website. In mid October she flaunted her gigantic breasts covered by star-shaped, leopard-print pasties. The week prior, she bared her booty in a y...

Nicki Minaj pasties
Nicki Minaj is letting it all hang out in new photos she posted on Instagram today. The singer, 30, showed off her gigantic breasts covered by star-shaped, leopard-print pasties.

Wearing a string of gold chains, she captioned one image: "Should I add #Pasties to the Spring Collection????"

Minaj just created a clothing line for Kmart, and we have a feeling the company probably wouldn't include pasties in its inventory.

In another image, Minaj writes: "Putting this one on a T-Shirt."

The rapper has a history of posting provocative images online. Last week she flaunted her booty in a yello...

Nicki actually posted the images in February, but for some reason uploaded to her Instagram page once again on Monday. Perhaps she was seeking a little attention as she's been somewhat out of the spotlight this fall after departing American Idol.

With the immortal words from 20th century poet Sir Mix-a-Lot "I like big butts and I cannot lie," the crack research team at Starpulse was given the arduous and grueling task of finding the finest photos on the site that revere one of the world's preferred body parts, the buttocks.

In contemporary music and in Hollywood today, starlets and singers who refrain from eating are considered to be the definition of beauty and grace; but many prefer more curvier women -- those with a little "junk in the trunk".

Verdict: They are similar. Tanaka may have a case when he heads to court. However, the music progression in question is fairly simplistic and is only a handful of notes repeated ad nauseam. Tanaka's lawyer said, "We beli...

Nicki Minaj is urging rapper Gucci Mane, real name Radric Davis, to check himself into a rehab center.

Mane made some off-key comments about Minaj via Twitter on Monday, including alleging that the two had slept together. He also went on the offensive against his label, Atlantic Records, and other stars like Waka Flocka Flame, Drake and Ciara, the latter of whom he also insinuated he slept with.

But the "Starships" singer quickly denied his allegations, writing on Twitter, "May God strike me dead if I ever had sex wit that man... N**ga da way ya ugliness is set up... crackhead. Jesus stri...

Thanks to stars like Miley Cyrus and Nicki Minaj, "twerk" has found a home in the Oxford Dictionaries Online.

The official entry reads as such: "Twerk, v.: dance to popular music in a sexually provocative manner involving thrusting hip movements and a low, squatting stance."

Twerking has been around for almost 20 years, first appearing in hip-hop in New Orleans. It was later popularized in the early 2000s thanks to the Ying-Yang Twins, with songs like "Whistle While You Twurk."
