You were wrong if you thought Nicki Minaj’s comment about writing her own raps were directed towards Iggy Azalea.
Nicki Minaj went a little HAM letting everyong know on Twitter that she was happy to have women nominated in the category overall and it had nothing to do with dissing Iggy Azalea.
Read more of what she said:
"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! 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. I fell in love with Lauryn Hill b/c I knew she was the author behind those amazingly profound articulated songs on the MisEducation.
"I wondered how Lauryn tapped into my brain and wrote an album on love, betrayal, passion, pain, triumph, brokenness…Did she read minds? 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. I’ve congratulated Iggy on the success of Fancy, publicly. She should be very proud of that. All the women nominated should b proud. That will never change my desire to motivate women to write. Our voices have to be heard. I hope I inspire up & coming females to do that."
