Nicki Minaj blasts Gucci Mane as ‘sick’ and ‘in dire need of rehab’ after rapper claims they slept together
The 30-year-old singer took to her new Instagram page earlier today to share an almost-naked photo of herself and, no, it wasn’t in honor of throwback Thursday. “#ThongThursdays,” the beauty shared along with a pic of her booty in a teeny, tiny pink thong that left very little to the imagination. In the snapshot, Minaj appears topless as she shows off her bare back, bum and right arm. PHOTOS: Nicki’s craziest hairdos Instagram Afterwards, she posted another Instagram shot of herself from a past photo shoot in a kitchen with the caption, “B4 I post more #thongthursdays Check out this #throwbackThursday photo shoot pic.” In the shot, a clothed-Minaj sports white heels, tiny skintight black shots and a white motorcycle jacket. In a third Instagram pic she posted yesterday (but has since deleted), Minaj tried to get another trend going on the social networking site. What’s Wednesday’s trend you ask? “#CamelToeWednesdays,” Minaj shared along with a photo of her in a bright pink bra and pink tights that hugged every curve of her body. Minaj joined Instagram just two weeks ago, writing, “It’s Barbie Bitch!!!!!!!!!!!!!!” along with a black and white sketch of her face. Back in January of this year, Minaj, who didn’t have an Instagram account at the tweeted, tweeted to her fans, “my 1st instagram pic gon be a big fat ass w/baby oil being poured on it. who’s ready?!?!?!?!?!?!?!!!” Unfortunately for fans, Minaj did not come through on that promise. VIDEO: Heidi Klum tweets topless pic These pics certainly aren’t the first time super sexy and revealing shots of Minaj have been shared via her social networking site. Last month, her BFF Scaff Beezy posted a racy topless photo of Minaj wearing a beehive blond wig and holding her bare breasts with her hands to cover her nipples. She wasn’t too shy about the pic though, as she later retweeted it to her 16.6 million Twitter followers.
Nicki Minaj And Gucci Mane Engage In Sex-Fueled Twitter War
His attorney, Christopher Niro, said Tanaka was “working on a new album and screenplay,” possibly in South America. “Argentina, from what I was told,” Niro said in an interview at his Loop offices at Niro, Haller & Niro. “He’s kind of a reclusive he makes and produces music and that’s his goal.” In addition to Minaj, the lawsuit names RedOne, whose real name is Nadir Khayat, a Moroccan producer and songwriter behind hits for stars like Lady Gaga, Jennifer Lopez and Pitbull. Also named are three other writers on “Starships,” Carl Falk, Wayne Hector and Rami Yacoub. Calls to Minaj’s manager, Manny Halley, as well as to representatives of RedOne, were not returned Tuesday. According to the suit, RedOne and Minaj’s other collaborators are citizens of Sweden and may have been living there around the time when “Neu Chicago” was being used in television advertising campaigns for a clothing retailer as well as a Swedish beverage company. “They had a very good opportunity to hear it,” Niro said. Copyright lawsuits are fairly common in federal court, from amateurs who claim an artist stole an idea off a mix tape they submitted to accusations over unattributed music sampling, according to industry experts. In one high-profile case last month, a dispute between pop star Robin Thicke and the estate of funk legend Marvin Gaye landed in a federal court in California after members of Gaye’s camp complained about similarities between Thicke’s summer hit “Blurred Lines” and compositions by Gaye as well as the band Funkadelic. Thicke claims the Gaye estate is trying to copyright an entire genre. Matthew Sag, a Loyola University Chicago law professor specializing in copyright infringement, said the line between imitation and illegal copying can be blurry. “You want to reward creativity, but you don’t want to accidentally punish people for using what are the building blocks of an entire style of music,” Sag said. “No one owns a genre.” Sag said the first step in a copyright suit is to prove that the defendants were in a position to have heard the music that was allegedly stolen. In Tanaka’s case, proving the writers were living in Sweden when Tanaka’s song was being played on radio and TV could be crucial, he said.
And on Tuesday Nicki Minaj took to Instagram to give her fans a generous peek at her upcoming collection for Kmart, which is set to be released in October/November of this year. In the series of photos, the 29-year-old rapper models multiple colourful and vivacious garments that will soon be available under the star’s name for affordable prices. Coming in October/November: Nicki Minaj treated her Instagram followers to a generous glimpse of her upcoming collection for Kmart which she models herself Nicki is her own best marketing tool as she models the garments herself in the series of promotional snaps. The collection includes a number of mini-dresses – some fitted, some flowing – as well as two-piece spandex suits, bodycon dresses, and a range of elaborate patterning. A range of yellows, blues and pinks make up the color scheme for Nicki’s fall collection and there is no doubt she looks flawless in every one of them. She’s got casual covered: The 29-year-old rapper previewed a range of designs, some dressy and some casual including this black hooded sweater From basic to glittery: One of Nicki’s designs is a simple form-fitting LBD, whilst another is a pants and top ensemble with gold print, which she wore herself to NYFW A figure-hugging LBD with a particularly low cut neck is perhaps the most daring and sexy of the bunch, but Nicki was sure to keep some of the designs casual. The Roman’s Revenge songstress models a black hooded sweatshirt and matching track pants, preparing shoppers for the upcoming cooler months. Just last week, the intelligent entertainer gave one of her designs a promotional run at perhaps the best venue possible for widespread fashion marketing. Detailed: One of the Roman’s Revenge singer’s designs is a two-piece ensemble featuring an array of chains patterned on the form-fitting fabric Flattering the angles: The ensembles look a lot like what the stunning Nicki would wear herself Nicki showed up to the Jeremy Scott runway show at New York Fashion Week wearing one of her flattering two-piece designs. The matching high waisted pants and cropped long-sleeved top were made of stretchy black fabric and decorated with gold spots, flattering the rapper beautifully as she strode into the prestigious style event. Without the relevant intel, Nicki’s fellow rich and famous fashion week attendees would certainly have no way of knowing the ensemble would soon hit the shelves of discount retailer Kmart. Racy: The collection includes a couple of revealing dresses, ready to wear to your local nightclub Nicki – who started her career as a singer and rapper – is continuing solidify her brand and expand her career. Aside from music, the star has formed part of the American Idol judging panel and even filmed a role in a film this year called The Other Woman, starring Cameron Diaz. The star has collaborated with MAC makeup to release a limited edition lipstick and she also has two of her own fragrances distributed by Macy’s and Elizabeth Arden.
Nicki Minaj’s Kmart Line: We Imagine Her (Crazy) Inspiration Board
Now, after leaving us in the dark for months, she finally unveiled her collection on Instagram and it certainly exceeds any expectations we had. There are plenty of head-turning prints, lots of Lycra and a healthy serving of cleavage throughout. But aside from those three key elements, we had a hard time discerning one theme throughout. Which is why we decided to play guess the inspiration for some of the most, uh, memorable outfits. Courtesy Nicki Minaj(2) Insets(2) Above, Minaj does the nearly-impossible: She makes high-waisted jeans and an acid-washed denim jacket look nearly R-rated. We imagine her watching old Fresh Prince of Bel Air reruns and thinking That denim outfit is fun, but it could really be improved with more holes and no shirt. Then theres her super-tight stretch jumpsuit, with its gold prints and scales, which seems to reference, say, a dragon featured in the 90s video game Street Fighter.

Chicago artist claims Nicki Minaj copied his song
“The perception that people had of me completely changed because there are no cue cards, there’s no script, it wasn’t me performing a song. It was, ‘Let’s see your real personality,’” Minaj explains. “My core is a genuine human being who roots for other people. I didn’t want to blow smoke up their ass. I wanted every contestant to leave with something that they could remember.” PHOTOS: American Idol judges, then and now Minaj says she wants to do “three more albums” before she moves on to the next phase of her career: acting. “If I can do that, I’ll feel complete,” she says. “One day, when I start getting a couple gray hairs, maybe it will all be only acting. I just never know. . . I’ve kind of become the poster child for doing the things that no one expects.” PHOTOS: Nicki Minaj’s craziest hairstyles ever In fact, long before she became famous, the “High School” rapper dreams of becoming a lawyer. “I just loved the thought of going into a courtroom with mostly men and defending someone — just being able to persuade people with your words,” she says. “It seems glamorous in a way. Very inspiring and ballsy.” Nicki Minaj is Marie Claires August cover girl Credit: Satoshi Saikusa/Marie Claire That dream never came to fruition, of course, as Minaj went on to become a multiplatinum recording artist. During her Australian tour in 2012, however, the musician tells Marie Claire she had a “weird epiphany” and decided to pursue another lifelong dream: motherhood.

What is shocking is the list of celebrities he threw into the fire. The most outrageous claim being that he slept with Nicki Minaj , and not just on one occasion and not alone. “Me and waka f–k nikki minaj dats nothing,” he tweeted Monday, stating that rapper Waka Flocka Flame got in on the action with the “Starships” rapper. “Nikki minaj can do a trick with her mouth ask waka?” “May God strike me dead if I ever had sex wit that man #ugliness,” Minaj replied in a tweet she later deleted. “He’s sick and in dire need of rehab. #Love” Gucci Mane also included Monica and Keyshia Cole as ladies he’s bedded. Flocka’s humorous reply was: ‘Kids please don’t do drugs @gucci1017 is the perfect outcome lol #IceCreamCone.” Kids please dont do drugs @gucci1017 is the perfect outcome lol #IceCreamCone Waka Flocka Flame (@WakaFlockaBSM) September 9, 2013 The 33-year-old Alabama rapper went on to detail his relationship with Minaj, rehashing how he helped her when she was just starting to make a name for herself in the industry. “Did I put nikki n 50 dollar room then let her move in,” Mane tweeted. “Then help her get an apartment im a fool 4 a bubble butt but I hate a–shots fake ho.” Getty Images Gucci Mane’s tweets claim he also slept with Fantasia Barrino and Ciara. The “I Just Wanna Party” rapper was referring to when Minaj lived in Atlanta in the early stages of her career while being managed by Deb Antney, Waka Flocka’s mom and Mane’s former manager. Gooch also responded to the former “American Idol” judge’s comments about him needing an intervention after several instances of incarceration. “Tell. Her intervention my d–k in her throat I moved dat b—h to atl,” he continued. “B—h u sleepin n d car.
Since Sunday, Mane was retweeting fan shout-outs and hyping his new “TrapHouse 3″ album when things took an ugly turn. He decided to publicly air some “dirty laundry,” tweeting malicious items against his former manager and confessing he’d had sex with Nicki Minaj (and had photos to sell for $1,000,000). Perez Hilton reported some of the rapper’s choice words about the “Starships” singer: “Me and waka f*ck Nikki Minaj dats nothing,”B*tch u was sleepin n d car. Bitch. I pulled dat b*tch off wayne bus,” and finally …”So Nikki I didnt have u in atl for 2 weeks room rate 60 a night?” Of course, if you know anything about Nicki Minaj, there way no way she was going to let this fly. She denied Mane’s claims with #crackhead and #BubbaGump hashtags, telling fans, “Jesus strike me dead right now if I ever had sex with this animal.” Both stars have since deleted these statements, but the following tweets are still up: Fuck social media Gucci Mane (@gucci1017) September 11, 2013 My ex manager hack my acct str8 up It appears to be a grave situation for Gucci Mane. His behavior has sparked talks of intervention for alleged drug problems — one of Minaj’s deleted tweets said he is in “dire need of rehab.” It is unclear if the strange ordeal was a hoax or a cry for help.
