As you can see in numerous videos, just 5 years ago Nicki Minaj only wore street clothes and baseball caps. That was the real Nicki Minaj. The Nicki Minaj in this picture was re-imaged by the music industry so she could have more appeal to the masses and therefore sell a lot more concert tickets and shitty albums…making the industry she works for a shit ton more money. She’s just a much less talented fakeass Lady Gaga wannabe backed by an industry that doesn’t care about making good music. Sacrificing the art of music for maximized profit.
On the other hand Lauryn Hill has always been real. Fuck the haters.
