Interviews with Lil Kim and Nicki Minaj, 2010

Nicki Minaj:

Angie Martinez: “Nicki and Lil Kim, I hate that. I tried to handle that the same way. Both of them are grown women, they are each entitled to their own opinion and their feelings. I’m not there to put my feelings all up in it. They’re going to exist because I’m doing the interview so you may hear some of how I feel but I’m not overly putting my opinion in it. I may challenge them sometimes if they say something but ultimately I’m giving them a forum to say how they feel. But it’s awkward, I wish they would get along, it’d be better energy for everybody. 

 

In the case of Nicki and Kim, they don’t want a mediator. They don’t want someone to squash it. I would have been happy to, that would have been great.

 

"Sometimes people don’t want a mediator. In the case of Nicki and Kim, they don’t want a mediator. They don’t want someone to squash it. I would have been happy to, that would have been great. That’s not why they were there, either one of them. They wanted to be heard and I let them be heard, I can’t really do much more than that but really, it would be great if they did, it’s no fun. It’s not comfortable for anybody."
