*Da Brat stopped by “Rickey Smiley Morning Show” to dish about a variety of topics about celebrities  — including her friend Mariah Carey‘s divorce to Nick Cannon.

“She’s good on taking care of the babies and raising them she’s got a lot of help and she’s doing fine and yes we are still friends and everything and Nick is a great person too,” she said.

Also, Da Brat opened up about her thoughts on other female rappers leading the game — like Nicki Minaj and Iggy Azalea.

“I like Nicki and I like Iggy. People tell me that Iggy sounds a lot like me. I don’t hear it but so many people tell me that,” she said. “I mean I feel like she’s got her own style. Brat is going to [be] Brat. There’s only one Brat. Twitter – only one Brat! Instagram So-So Brat.”

She added, “but I am not really worried about it. I take it as a compliment. If you are mimicking my style of sound like me in anyway you are just letting people know that you love Brat.”

But not everything Da Brat talked about was all good. She expressed how she felt about the Lifetime Aaliyah biopic being produced without the family’s involvement.

“I’ve been hearing different things but what kind of upset me a little bit is that they didn’t talk to her family because who would know her most to me would be her family, her brother – her other,” she said.

She continued with, “and it kind of hurt my feelings that they didn’t talk to them to see who the real Aaliyah is you know talk to Missy or talk to Timbaland or talk to people who worked with her or who is really, really close to her.”

She added, “I don’t know who they got their information from and it might be feasible but to me it might have been better to get it from her parents – somebody who has known her since birth.”
