After her controversial BET speech which people assumed to be about Iggy Azalea, Nicki Minaj has raised some eyebrows again when she tweeted about racism, hard work and her new single "Anaconda" on her official Twitter account. While she has already explained her side about that infamous speech, she might need to clarify what she actually meant by some of her recent tweets. Read on to learn more about it.
Nicki Minaj performs "Pills N Potions" during the 2014 BET Awards in Los Angeles, California June 29, 2014.
Minaj's tweets on July 23, 2014 were about racism and about how some people work hard while some people just breeze by and slack. Check it out below.
"racism is alive & well," Minaj tweeted at 10:41 a.m. on July 23, 2014.
"some people have to put in work. others get to cut corners. we see it but don't say it. welcome to the real world," she added at 10:44 a.m.
While she didn't exactly mention who she is pertaining to, a certain white rapper is being pointed at again (Hint: It rhymes with Ziggy). But, before people jump to any conclusions, it's best to just wait until Nicki actually mentions a name or acknowledges these particular tweets.
However, it looks like that's not going to happen any time soon because Nicki has since moved on to tweet about other stuff, particularly her new single "Anaconda."
"Anaconda" is from Nicki's upcoming album "The Pink Print." Aside from "Anaconda," other tracks included in "The Pink Print" are "Pills n Potions" which was released on May 21, 2014 and "Lookin Ass" (released on March 11, 2014).
She also took to Instagram to post about "Anaconda" including its cover art that a lot of people are talking about!
That's the latest about Nicki Minaj including her tweets about racism, hard work and her new single "Anaconda." Keep reading International Business Times, or IBTimes for the latest update about Nicki Minaj, as well as other news about entertainment, technology, health, business, sports and finance.
