Nicki Minaj Insulted by Host at Access Hollywood
Nicki Minaj has been getting insulted in public for what some are calling “rude” and “indignant” behavior. The rest of us might just say she’s ghetto. However you want to look at it, she’s not getting good reviews from people who have been with her behind the scenes and in front of the camera. One reporter at Access Hollywood, Billy Bush, went onto The Today Show to say that Minaj walked away from one of his field reporters because she didn’t like his questions
The reporter, Laura Saltman, asked Minaj about her feud with Mariah Carey. Harmless enough, right? Sorry, you’re wrong. After looking at her like she was crazy, Minaj responded with, “That question didn’t even make sense.” “So if you want me to insinuate [sic] what you’re talking about I’m not going to. So let’s just have some straightforward questions…. Okay goodnight.” Saltman blogged about her encounter with Minaj writing, “In my 20 years in entertainment news, I have interviewed close to 5,000 celebrities — people who have bigger bragging rights than Nicki. Men and women who have Oscars, Grammys and Emmys. Yet, by far, she is the most ungracious of anyone I have met.”
Bush went in on the Idol judge, on Friday’s episode of Access Hollywood saying, “She’s [Minaj] like the miss female Kanye. Just a Pariah.” He continued, “Mariah and the Pariah.” “I’ve just about had it with her.” “She’s so rude and so indignant.”
Minaj was more than offended by being called “unprofessional” and took to her twitter account to address Bush. She tweeted, “The Audacity of you to call me nasty with your one sided journalism. That’s what you ppl do. Yes. I AM the female Kanye c**t @billybush.”
Bush has extended an invitation to Minaj to appear on Access Hollywood to settle their feud. All of this because the rapper did not want to answer a question that she deemed inappropriate. Was Minaj right for walking away and not being intimidated by reporters? Could she have handled it in a better way?
