While she has been completely silent on the feud Drake and Meek Mill were having some months ago, Nicki Minaj opens up on the Drake/Meek Mill feud in new interview with New York Times.
When asked about the much publicized beef, Nicki said, “They’re men, grown-ass men. It’s between them.’’
When asked how she feels about it, she didn’t hesitate and said ‘‘I hate it,’’ she added. ‘‘It doesn’t make me feel good. You don’t ever want to choose sides between people you love. It’s ridiculous. I just want it to be over.’’
The reporter messed up when she eventually asked, ‘‘Is there a part of you that thrives on drama, or is it no, just pain and unpleasantness—’’ referring to the Drake/Meek Mill beef and Birdman and Lil Wayne’s war.
Nicki Minaj let all hell loose on her and went,
‘‘That’s disrespectful! Why would a grown-ass woman thrive off drama?’’
‘‘What do the four men you just named have to do with me thriving off drama?’’ she asked. ‘‘Why would you even say that? That’s so peculiar. Four grown-ass men are having issues between themselves, and you’re asking me do I thrive off drama?’’
‘That’s the typical thing that women do. What did you putting me down right there do for you?’’ she asked. ‘‘Women blame women for things that have nothing to do with them. I really want to know why — as a matter of fact, I don’t. Can we move on, do you have anything else to ask?’’ she continued. ‘‘To put down a woman for something that men do, as if they’re children and I’m responsible, has nothing to do with you asking stupid questions, because you know that’s not just a stupid question. That’s a premeditated thing you just did.’’
She said ‘‘Do not speak to me like I’m stupid or beneath you in any way’’ and, at last, declared, ‘‘I don’t care to speak to you anymore.’’
