During the BET Awards Sunday night, Nicki Minaj had everyone talking with her interesting acceptance speech.
Nicki took the stage to accept her "Best Female Rapper" award for the 5th year in a row and said this:
I’m working on an album coming out at the end of the year called The Pink Print. That’s not a plug, but it’s a plug. My point is, what I want the world to know about Nicki Minaj is when you hear Nicki Minaj spit, Nicki Minaj wrote it [sips tea]. And no, no, no shade.
No, no shade. No, no, no shade.
I used to sit in the studio with Wayne and I would literally be taking, sometimes, three or four days to write a verse, and one day he was like, ‘No! You can’t be taking all them days to write no verse! You gotta write your verse right here in the studio!’ And that’s why I love him to this day because it pushed me to push my pen. And I’m still one of the only emcees that’s out here spitting metaphors and making you think and I don’t even really care if I get my credit or if I don’t. I don’t look at myself as a female rapper because I know what I do.

Now, people are saying that was her coming for Iggy Azalea because of the rumors that Iggy has help writing.
Nicki Minaj took to twitter to clear a few things up.
The media puts words in my mouth all the time and this is no different. I will always take a stance on women writing b/c I believe in us!— PillsNPotions (@NICKIMINAJ) July 2, 2014
I believe we're smart enough to write down our own thoughts and perspective, just like the men do. I've been saying this for 5 YEARS— PillsNPotions (@NICKIMINAJ) July 2, 2014
I fell in love with Lauryn Hill b/c I knew she was the author behind those amazingly profound and articulated songs on the MisEducation— PillsNPotions (@NICKIMINAJ) July 2, 2014
I wondered how Lauryn tapped into my brain and wrote an album on love, betrayal, passion, pain, triumph, brokenness.... Did she read minds?— PillsNPotions (@NICKIMINAJ) July 2, 2014
It's the same reason I have a different level of respect for Missy. I know she's a writer and a producer. Women MUST aspire for more.— PillsNPotions (@NICKIMINAJ) July 2, 2014
I've congratulated Iggy on the success of Fancy, publicly. She should be very proud of that. All the women nominated should b proud.— PillsNPotions (@NICKIMINAJ) July 2, 2014
That will never change my desire to motivate women to write. Our voices have to be heard. I hope I inspire up & coming females to do that.— PillsNPotions (@NICKIMINAJ) July 2, 2014
Then today, Iggy Azalea posted this on her Instagram:
So with that being said, nothing to see here... move along.
