[Gifset: James Franco asks Nicki Minaj a series of questions: “Was it easy for you to break into the music business, or did you have to come in through the back door? Have you ever hit… bottom? When did you first realise you were sitting on a gold mine?” Nicki, looking hurt and angry, replies “..I know what the fuck you’re doing.”]
Yo Nicki is legit fed up with people talking about her ass, though. Look at her face yo. She is genuinely INSULTED and not having it.
Like this is a woman who just likes what she does and all anyone can ever focus on is her fucking ass and the fact she got ass shots or whatever. She’s not stupid. Give it a fucking rest.
A YouTube video of the full interview is here.
Later in this “interview,” Nicki is thoroughly fed up and says: “This is what you brought me here to do? I need— I need— where’s my publicist? I’m not gonna sit here and take this shit.” And, unless my judging of people is very, very off, everyone— including the two other gross white dudes who provide rude commentary throughout, including her ‘publicist’— everyone— except Nicki was in on this farce.
She is clearly hurt, disappointed, angry and distressed. She is obviously incredibly uncomfortable. This blatant display of misogynoir isn’t remotely funny.
y’all if you actually watch the interview (and the rest of the thing) it’s a scripted thing!!! it’s really clearly satire throughout all of these interviews that the interviewer is asking questions the interviewees don’t want to answer/are tired of answering to bring to light the kind of misogynistic/racist bullshit musicians have to deal with in the industry
