Lil Mama has dismissed comments about copying Nicki Minaj's style, instead insisting that she in fact was the one being imitated.
After arriving at the recent MTV Movie Awards with a platinum bob, much like Nicki's haircut, many media outlets commented on the similarity. Upon seeing photos of Nicki's haircut, Lil Mama exclaimed "oh she’s trying to be down". Yes, that is an actual quote.
Speaking to Vibe, the rapper said, "My cut is blunt and futuristic and Nicki Minaj started wearing that bob on her head after she came to my show (Lil Mama is a judge on 'America's Best Dance Crew'), 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."
Unfortunately, she didn't stop at just crediting herself for Minaj's hair style. She continues, "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."
So there you go.
