Lil Kim to Nicki Minaj: Stupid Is As Stupid Does
Posted by Videoson 02/16/2012 at 1:29 PM
If you haven’t been following, the Harajuku Barbie and original Queen Bee have been trading slight insults for the last few months, with the latter claiming that Minaj has been copying her style since she emerged on the arm of Lil Wayne. Because there’s only room for one female rapper with a penchant for colorful wigs and foul language. But no dig has ever been completely straightforward, so with all the close-reading and deciphering of subliminal messages in performances, how are we supposed to know what either of them really think of one another? Luckily Bravo’s Andy Cohen, our generation’s greatest journalist, knows how to ask the difficult questions. The late-night host welcomed Lil Kim to Watch What Happens Live on Wednesday, double-stuffing the set with MSNBC’s Willie Geist, an equally concerned hip-hop fan. Best pairing ever? Kim successfully made her way through the three grueling questions of Cohen’s Plead the Fifth without revealing much, but it wasn’t until Geist asked her directly—another fine example of the necessary interrogation skills—that she finally shed some important light on Minaj’s new material. “If you have to make a song ‘Stupid Hoe,’ you must be a stupid hoe,” she explained. And it’s as simple as that! If the men of hip-hop are going to wash their hands of all potential beefs, we might as well strap in and see where this goes.
