Another week and Nicki Minaj is in the center of more online controversy.
While in Paris for their fashion week, Nicki wore this outfit.
The top is by Mugler, and when I saw it, just like a number of the people on social media, I felt like Nicki was copying an old look from Lil Kim.
When little Kim wore this back at the 1999 MTV VMA Awards, she was the talk of the town. Everybody was talking about it, and Madonna even gave her boob a friendly jiggle.
While I’m not sure, since I don’t know Nicki personally, it seems pretty obvious that even though Nicki and Kim are sworn hop hop enemies, that Nicki knew this look would create controversy and conversation which is probably what she wanted.
On a deeper level, one of the main reasons, Lil Kim and Nicki don’t see eye to eye, is because Kim feels that Nicki continues to steal her past looks without giving credit or paying homage.
Check out some of the social media chatter captured by TheShadeRoom.
What do you think?
Is Nicki Minaj biting Lil Kim’s style?
