Why Celebrities Need Press Agents
Seriously, celebs. For your own good, put down the smartphone and hand over your social media to the professionals.
Well, this is random. Nicki Minaj and her maybe-fiancé of three months Meek Mill recently got into an online fight that ended with Nicki pointing her pitchfork in Joe Biden’s direction. Why? Because she can’t tell the difference between the names Budden and Biden. If you’re looking for a creative wedding present for Nicki, might I suggest registering her for a couple of beginner reading classes at The Learning Annex.
E! says it all started shortly after rapper Joe Budden verbally shat on Meek Mill during a recent episode of his podcast, I’ll Name This Podcast Later. Joe claimed Meek’s music is “too hard” for him to be serving up “fucking sappy fuck shit” realness when he’s around Nicki. Joe Budden must have been one of those dudes who was dumped at the prom or something, because he goes in hard on Nicki and Meek Mill’s romance:
“Be the hardcore guy that I’m sure [Nicki] was attracted to at some point. It’s nasty. I hate everything about it. [Meek’s] all like this bitch just stepped off of fucking Mars and is like the only girl. I hate it all. But I do appreciate them for keeping the hope of love alive.”
When Nicki and Meek Mill found out that the dude responsible for “Fire” was talking shit about them, they stretched their fingers and prepared for a marathon Twitter beat down. Nicki first called out Joe Budden by tweeting: “Why would you be bothered by another man showing love to his girl? Let’s celebrate black love. All the best w/ur podcast. All jokes aside.” Meek Mill followed by tweeting: “I don’t want ya opinion of you don’t got shit!” Meek also called Joe an “old hating noodle” before posting a Vine of a dude falling down an escalator with the caption: “Joe tripping!” But that wasn’t the end of it.
According to Hip Hop Vibe, Nicki then decided to rub salt in the already very salty wound by hitting the favorite button on a tasteless tweet about Joe Budden’s son. The only problem was, the tweet she favorited wasn’t about Joe Budden – it was about Vice President Joe Biden. To make things worse, it was a tweet about Joe Biden’s recently deceased son Beau. Nicki quickly yanked back her favorite, but plenty of people on the internet saw what she did and swatted at her for being so rude.
I’m leaning toward giving Nicki the benefit of the doubt on this one. People make mistakes! For example, I accidentally bought a bottle of Nicki’s Myx Fusions Moscato. Once I realized my mistake, I made another by drinking it. Eventually my stomach forgave me for filling it with peach-flavored piss. If my stomach can forgive me for making such a regretful mistake, then I can forgive Nicki for hers.
