Team Nicki Minaj is up and Team Lil Kim is down. John Legend is now voicing his opinion on the Lil Kim and Nicki Minaj beef. When asked which one he prefers, here’s what he had to say:
Nikki Minaj or Lil Kim?
“Well right now… Nikki Minaj but you know there’s a time and place for everybody. I feel like this is Nikki’s time right now but Kim had a nice run.”
What happened with your hairline on twitter?
“Yeah, I got kind of pissed off that morning because I got the [BET] Humanitarian Award and for some reason a trending topic was that my hairline is crooked while I’m giving this heartfelt speech about the Humanitarian Award, so I got a little annoyed and kinda had a rant that morning, but I was a little out of line, you know, I had a moment and that’s the interesting thing about Twitter, if you impulsively type something it kinda takes off.”
What do you think about your role as an artist versus your role as an activist?
“Well sometimes it really comes together, and I think either way we all live here together, we’re all citizens in this country, and we’re all citizens of the world, and you want the world to be a better place, as much as you have any control over that. You want to try to make it better, and I think part of the way we do that is by creating art. But also since we see so much and we have access to so much and we have the ears of so many people, I think we’d be remiss if we didn’t try to make the world better in other ways.”
So you think there’s a responsibility as an artist?
“I think everyone has their own take on that. I feel like it’s my responsibility as someone who knows what’s going on, who reads a lot, who pays attention and travels a lot and has a lot of resources and a lot of, you know, people that listen to what I have to say. I feel like I don’t want to waste that by just trying to make money for myself. I want to use that opportunity to help somebody else because I see a lot of people that struggle.”
Dayyummm…. John Legend is still on that hairline thing that was on Twitter.
