Fans Accuse Nicki Minaj of Using 'Homophobic' Lyrics on New Album

"The homophobia jumped out and I won’t be streaming her album after this one listen."

Nicki Minaj's latest album Queen surprise-dropped last Friday and fans are in a frenzy—but many Barbz aren't loving some of the lyrics. LGBTQ fans have even accused Minaj of using homophobic insults to take down male rappers.

On the album's second track "Majesty," Minaj raps:

“Who want it with Nicki now/I smoke ‘em like hippies now/they see me say ‘Yippie’ now/home runnin’ like Griffey now/they switchin’ like sissies now/you niggas is iffy now.”

Many queer people have had the word sissy thrown at them as an insult, so it stings a bit when Minaj uses it to belittle someone. It burns even more when you consider the eerily similar lyrics from her 2008 mixtape in which she raps, "First they love you/then they switch/they switch like f*ggots." 

 

 

Minaj has apologized for those lyrics from a decade ago, but adding more fuel to this fire, in the very next track "Barbie Dreams," Minaj disses many of the biggest male rappers in the game and seems to attack Young Thug's perceived feminity. She raps:

"Used to fuck with Young Thug/I ain’t addressing this shit/caught him in my dressing room / stealing dresses and shit / I used to give this nigga with a lisp testers and shit / how you want the pu-thy? / Can’t say S’s and shit."

Minaj appears to be putting down Young Thug with gay stereotypes, makes fun of lisps, men wearing dresses, and even questions if he is actually heterosexual. 

Fans weren't happy with the lyrics.
