Things are getting complex.
Just days after she appeared to poke fun at Iggy Azalea at the BET Awards in Los Angeles, Nicki Minaj addressed the situation yesterday (2nd July), insisting that the media was just continuing to put "words in my mouth" and that Iggy should be "proud" of the success of recent single "fancy".
And it wasn't long until Iggy responded in a long message on Instagram.
This is how it unfolded.
The media puts words in my mouth all the time and this is no different. I will always take a stance on women writing b/c I believe in us!— PillsNPotions (@NICKIMINAJ) July 2, 2014
I believe we're smart enough to write down our own thoughts and perspective, just like the men do. I've been saying this for 5 YEARS— PillsNPotions (@NICKIMINAJ) July 2, 2014
I fell in love with Lauryn Hill b/c I knew she was the author behind those amazingly profound and articulated songs on the MisEducation— PillsNPotions (@NICKIMINAJ) July 2, 2014
I wondered how Lauryn tapped into my brain and wrote an album on love, betrayal, passion, pain, triumph, brokenness.... Did she read minds?— PillsNPotions (@NICKIMINAJ) July 2, 2014
It's the same reason I have a different level of respect for Missy. I know she's a writer and a producer. Women MUST aspire for more.— PillsNPotions (@NICKIMINAJ) July 2, 2014
I've congratulated Iggy on the success of Fancy, publicly. She should be very proud of that. All the women nominated should b proud.— PillsNPotions (@NICKIMINAJ) July 2, 2014
And he was Iggy's response:
Is it over yet?
