Nicki Minaj insists she didn’t “slam” Kanye West over ‘Gold Digger’ lyric

Nicki Minaj insists she didn't "slam" Kanye West over 'Gold Digger' lyric

Minaj says her 'Monster' collaborator "tells the truth about stuff ppl don't wanna hear"

Getty Nick Levine, 17th October 2016 Nicki Minaj has denied "slamming" her 'Monster' collaborator Kanye West in a new magazine interview in which she quoted a line from his 2005 song 'Gold Digger'.
Speaking to Marie Claire about racial injustice, Minaj is quoted as saying: "I'm so tired of black women feeling that when our men get rich, they're going to leave them for a woman of a different race."
She continued: "It wasn't funny when Kanye said [in 'Gold Digger'], 'When he get on, he'll leave your ass for a white girl' – and Kanye happens to be with a white girl now. It wasn't funny when he said it; it was the fucking truth."
Quoting a web article which implied she was "slamming" West with these comments, Minaj wrote on Twitter today earlier (October 17): ""Slams" a man/genius who gave me one of the biggest looks of my career? I said he wasn't kidding, he was speaking the TRUTH about d industry."
"I was saying he's the one who said it first. He doesn't apologize for his choices. He tells the truth about stuff ppl don't wanna hear!" Minaj added in a follow-up tweet.
