Lil Mama Says Nicki Minaj Copied Her Style: “Flattered Because She Imitated Me” [Photos]

 

Lil Mama Speaks On Nicki Minaj

Rapper turned America’s Best Dance Crew judge Lil Mama thinks Young Money artist Nicki Minaj stole her style.

In a recent interview with Vibe.com, Lil Mama explains why she feels that she’s the inspiration behind Nicki’s look.

“My cut is blunt and futuristic and Nicki Minaj started wearing that bob on her head after she came to my show, so at the end of the day I know what I do and I know what I possess and I know who I am.”

Lil Mama’s gripe with Minaj comes from her belief that the platinum selling rapper stole her hairstyle after visiting America’s Best Dance Crew.

“She was a guest on America’s Best Dance Crew and immediately afterwards, everywhere she went, she was wearing the haircut, the same exact way,” Lil Mama claims.

“I’m actually flattered because she imitated me and it felt like something that I was doing was cute and in time for the fashion and for the season, so it’s like let’s live, let’s do it,” she continued.

“I’m a trendsetter. The biggest form of flattery is imitation so I’m flattered.”

    I think maybe it’s a call for attention. i mean of course we all know Nicki Minaj is completly stylish & i think it’s very funny how Lil Mama belive Nicki Minaj copied her style. I don’t think Nicki Minaj would take the time out to “Copy” Lil Mama Really? come on now!

    I knew lil mama was completely out of her mind when she went up on stage with Jay & Alicia but now I am entirely convinced. For her to even think let alone say that Nikki would copy what can be only called a vulgar white bob is ridiculous. Nikki Minaj is unique and daring in her style. Lil Mama is an utter disgrace & hard to look at because she is bow wow’s identical twin sister. Wtf is she a judge on a dancing show btw? She can’t even dance, or sing for that matter. Annoying skeleton.

  • Not…try again

    Is she serious? Please I mean I do feel Nicki copied some her style from lil Kim but is Lil mama really serious…so no one can where a bob gtfoh.

    Both of them stole their style from Japan. Neither one of those “gals” is original….in any type of way.

    YALL WHO FEELS LIKE THIS IS SOOOOO IMPOSSIBLE, NEED TO REMEMBER BACK IN DA DAY WHEN LIL MAMA CAME OUT. LAWD…DEM OUTFITS SHE HAD ON THEN WAS TOO MUCH FOR HER, BECAUSE SHE DIDNT HAVE THE CONFIDENCE FOR IT. SHE ACTED LIKE A LIL CHILD FOR HER AGE THEN, BUT TRUE TO THE OUTFITS, WHEN NICKI CAME ON THE SCENE, I SAID NOW THIS WAS HOW LIL MAMA SHOULD HAVE WORN THE FITS AND STOP HANGING OUT WITH BOW WOW AND CHRIS BROWN. SHIII SHE STILL ACTS LIKE A LIL KID TO ME, BUT GROWING SOME.SHOUTS OUT TO JAPAN, ALWAYS CREATIVE IN TAKING FASHION TO NEXT LEVEL FLAWLESSLY.

    SMH….. Who cares! Everyone in the industry steals or copy each other styles! Both of them broads are tired anyway! One is talented for one hit song and the other one is on her 5mins of 15 minutes of fame and who can’t rap a da*n! Yeah, I said it!

  • abod

  • Platinum B

    Lil’ Mama, Who ? Who actually wants to copy Lil’ Mama ? The only thing different about these hairstyles is that Nicki’s looks better &nd Lil’ Mama’s looks like something that she found on the road and decided to try out . Who really cares if someone steals from someone . If you walk a certain way now-a-days , “OH SHE STOLE THAT WALK. ” STFU . EVERYTHING is used. Nothing’s a original anymore . The end -_-
