During an interview with Marie Claire, US rapper Nicki Minaj called Kanye West out for having double standards by marrying a white girl.
Apparently, Kanye’s marriage with Kim Kardashian went against every idea in the lyrics from his song Gold Digger.
Kanye used the 2005 hit gold Digger to blast black men who left their partners for a “white girl” once they hit the jackpot. While Nicki feels that this is a very real issue for black women, she also pointed out that Kanye has now done the same thing that he spoke against.
“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 said during the interview.
“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 f***ing truth.”
Similarly, Nicki spoke about the double standard that exists for black women who choose to share their risque pictures on social media. She blasted TV host Sharon Osbourne for blowing hot and cold on this particular issue.
“When Kim Kardashian’s naked picture came out, [Sharon Osbourne] praised it, and my fans attacked her for being such a hypocrite.
“So it wasn’t trashy and raunchy when a white woman did it, but it was when a black woman did it? It’s quite pathetic and sad, but that is my reality, and I’ve gotten accustomed to just shutting it down,” she explained.
Meanwhile, Nicki Minaj and other high-profile artists, performed at Jay Z and Beyoncé’s Tidal X charity concert at the Barclays Center last weekend.
