She says the two are different, although they march to their own beat quite obviously.
In an interview with ABC, the rapper admitted she’s quite annoyed.
“Offends me, no. Irks me, yes,” Minaj said when ABC’s Juju Chang asked if the Lady Gaga comparisons do, indeed, offend the similarly flamboyant hip-hop star. “We are in completely different lanes.”
During the questioning, she even appeared quite exasperated with her answers, completely disregarding any comparisons to the winter white singer.
From the wigs to the imaginative costumes, Minaj made no room to even put her in the same line as her New York native peer.
“Gaga’s a fantastic artist, you know, she paved her way,” she added. “She’s opened her own lane. But I think that I have my own lane, and we never cross. Ever. So, you know, I really don’t get the comparison anymore. Our music doesn’t sound the same. Our stage presence is not the same. I just can’t see the similarities.”
But that wasn’t the only topic of conversation. The ladies talked about wardrobe malfunctions, such as a nipple flash on stage on at least two different occasions. She called the embarrassment “devastating.”
