Few entertainers have a more loyal fanbase than Nicki Minaj. When provoked, the Barbz will mobilize and attack any Nicki pundit. Bhad Bhabie experienced this first hand when it was perceived that she was coming for Minaj.
During an Instagram Live session, Bhabie tried to explain the intricacies of the music industry by using Nicki Minaj as an example.
"Y'all just don't understand how this industry works," she began. "It's so sad. It's so upsetting because people put a lot of work into getting things done and then y'all hear, 'Oh, she didn't write that hook? Oh, well fuck her.' What? Y'all know most of the biggest...Drake, Nicki. All them people get shit written for them, too. Wayne. Like, all types of people get shit written. Whether they actually gonna use it or not, shit still gets written. Even sometimes in sessions artists will talk to they friends [to get advice]. That's how shit gets done. Sometimes it's a team effort."
Even though she didn't suggest that Nicki Minaj relies on a ghostwriter, the sheer fact she mentioned Minaj in this conversation alerted the Barbz. Although the cyber assault forced her to open up her Live an hour later, the rapper didn't back down from her statements.
"I forgot that Nicki's fandom, majority of them are brainwashed and braindead and just so in love with her that they believe anything she says," Bhabie said. "Not once did I ever say that Nicki doesn't write all of her music or that Cardi doesn't write all of her music or that City Girls or Lil Wayne or any of them people that I brought up earlier...What I said was hooks are given to them [and] verses are given to them sometimes."
This seemed to soothe the Barbz for the time being. But, they've been war ready since Nicki decided to start taking control of the media that covers her career.
