Nicki “The Generous Queen” Minaj more than lived up to the title when she sat down with Ellen DeGeneres for a lesson in rap beef 101. Minaj is, of course, a tenured professor of the subject, with more feuds to her name than Ryan Murphy’s dream diary.
After name-dropping the talk show host on “No Frauds,” her response to rival rapper Remy Ma’s diss track “Shether,” Minaj stopped by “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” on Tuesday and basically briefed the talk show host on the ways of being a bad bitch.
“Should I have a beef with someone?” DeGeneres jokingly asked Minaj, seeking counsel on the ins and outs of being a rap superstar. “What should I do to get entrenched in the rap game?”
Minaj went onto explain that first she needs a rival, despite DeGeneres’ attempts to convince the rapper that she really does like everybody **cough Kathy Griffin cough**. After suggesting Reese Witherspoon as a fake feuding partner, Minaj settled on Oprah Winfrey, given that the two are both powerful women in a media industry rife with competition.
“Somebody bring me my phone, and I’m going to text her that we’re in a feud,” DeGeneres joked. “Bring me my phone for the commercial break and I’ll let her know that I hate her.”
Oprah, what’s good?
