LiL Bow wow…Opps I mean…Lil Mama Says Nicki Minaj is a Swaggerjacker
Lil Mama in an interview with Vibe.com says that she’s an innovator and people in the industry have been jacking her style for quite some time. Mama says “The biggest form of flattery is imitation so I’m flattered. I understand the universal law. I’m not confused, I don’t feel like a follower. I started so many things that new artists are doing now anyway –my style, the way I’m aggressive on a track, the way I come through, the way my beat bangs. There are so many things that were borrowed, that I influenced that’s happening in music right, so I’m far from discouraged.” When asked about her new hairstyle and if she borrowed it from self proclaimed black barbie, Nicki Minaj, Mama said “My cut is blunt and futuristic and Nicki Minaj started wearing that bob on her head after she came to my show, so at the end of the day I know what I do and I know what I possess and I know who I am. I’m a trendsetter,” She also went on to say “She was a guest on ‘America’s Best Dance Crew’ and immediately afterwards, everywhere she went, she was wearing the haircut, the same exact way,” she continued. “But that doesn’t make me feel like ‘Oh she’s trying to be down’ like how I said about our culture. I’m actually flattered because she imitated me and it felt like something that I was doing was cute and in time for the fashion and for the season, so it’s like let’s live, let’s do it.”
