Nicki Minaj is doing her best to stay away from her comparisons to pop singer Lady Gaga after being featured in a Billboard magazine cover story where she was dubbed the “First Lady Gaga of Hip-Hop.”

In the article, Billboard compared her affinity for dubbing her fans “Barbies” to Lady Gaga’s penchant for calling her fans“monsters.”

“Minaj began dubbing herself the Harajuku Barbie and, borrowing a page from pop star Lady Gaga, created a unique virtual club for her fans by naming them “Barbz.”

After reading the article, Minaj apparently didn’t take too kindly to her comparison to the pop star and took to her Twitter page to air out her grievances.

According to the emcee, she started “The Barbie” trend on her own and didn’t appreciate being undermined as Lady Gaga copycat.

Minaj is said to be in talks to get her own line of MAC makeup and is looking to get into acting.
