Another day, another incident of the “barbs” pretending they’re in “Game of Thrones” defending their “queen” against any opinion that doesn’t align with their own.
There’s always a little shade served on the side of a compliment from Wendy Williams, that shade however also often times comes with a dose of truth, and the talk show host stayed true to her brand on the most recent episode of her talk show. The Wendy Williams show is back in action with a sparse, social distancing audience, and during her Hot Topics segment, Wendy acknowledged pop culture moments involving both Cardi B and Nicki Minaj.
Wendy spoke about Cardi’s recent interview where the Bronx superstar responded to critics who attempted to call her a “flop” simply because she was taking her time prepping new music. Since then, Cardi’s “WAP” featuring Megan Thee Stallion took over the No. 1 spot on the charts worldwide, Wendy then suggested that Cardi needs more time to solidify her legendary status in the rap game, which any sane adult can simply hear that opinion and move on, but oh no baby, not with Nicki fans.
As she moved on to Nicki Minaj, Wendy congratulated Nicki for giving birth before immediately mentioning that “she, too, is not a legend.” Wendy added, “Not the way we think of status and I feel bad for these girls, but you know, Salt-N-Pepa, they paid their dues and they did their thing.” Wendy has often had some harsh truth remarks for Nicki, most recently about the rapper marrying convicted sex offender Kenneth Petty. Of course, the Barbz didn’t sit by quietly and united their thumbs online to send a few thoughts Wendy’s way.
Here’s my thing…to me there’s a difference in the words icon and legend. When I think of the word legendary, I’m not thinking of anyone who debuted in the 2000’s just yet. I’m thinking Whitney Houston, Mariah Carey, Madonna (and more on the rap side) Lil Kim, Salt-N-Pepa, Foxy Brown, Queen Latifah, etc. I personally don’t think that’s shade to Nicki because when it’s all said and done perhaps she will be viewed as a legend, she’s just not there yet. However, you can’t reason with crazy.
Check out the Hot Topics clip along with a few responses below and let us know if Nicki has earned a spot on at the Rap Legends table.

Wendy Williams is so annoying. Even haters can agree Nicki Minaj is a legend as far as female rap goes.

Although Nicki Minaj has completely changed the female rap game and dominated for 10 years straight, I would say she is Legend status yet. I consider legends to have a successful career of minimum 20 years before you can be considered. She’s on her way, just not there yet.

Y’all not gonna drag Wendy for speaking facts…. Nicki Minaj isn’t a legend. She’s an Icon. There’s a difference. Beyonce is a legend. Mariah is a Legend. Lil Kim is a legend.
