** Her decision to slutshame Cardi B for a history of pole-dancing has prompted even more backlash, given how hypocritical and sexist such behavior is. The fact that Cardi B's so-called "crime" to warrant this behavior is.... getting a #1 single with a song that wasn't a Nicki diss-track does little to help, making Nicki read as whiny and bitter more than anything.

** Many hip-hop fans have also called this following Remy Ma's diss track "Shether" in 2017. Compared to the vicious, 7-minute long [[ReasonYouSuckSpeech character assassination]] Remy delivered, Nicki's response with "No Frauds" was criticised by many for being too short and lyrically weaker, as too late to arrive. Many felt it damaged her claim to the title "Queen of Rap", and the fact that the single didn't do very well on the charts made things worse.

* OlderThanTheyThink: Nicki is generally thought of as an artist of the 2010s as her first massive mainstream hit was "Super Bass" in 2011. However, she actually released her first mixtape in 2007, and has been making music as far back as the early 2000s, when she was a part of rap group The Hoodstars.



** As of 2014 averted, she has taken on a more natural look as her previous weird style has gone out of fashion (displayed by most artists abandoning said fashion, and the few who continue to use it, having diminished sales, this would result in Music/LadyGaga phasing out that said fashion in 2016 after experiencing diminishing sales of ''Artpop'', which cemented her CareerResurrection in music, which slowly began with her Golden Globe-winning role in ''Series/AmericanHorrorStory'').

* HarsherInHindsight: "Up in Flames" has the line "Imma violate y'all asses like Chris Stokes" which is a reference to the director and manager [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chris_Stokes_(director) Chris Stokes]] who was accused of molestation in 2007. This already puts it in DudeNotFunny territory, but it's especially harsh after Nicki's brother [[http://www.bet.com/celebrities/news/2017/03/10/nicki-minaj.html was accused of repeatedly molesting and raping a 12 year-old girl]] in 2015.

** A year after Nicki wrote "We Miss You", her cousin Nicholas Telemaque was shot and left to bleed to death. Even more eerily, the lyrics describe someone being shot and left to bleed to death.

* FandomRivalry: With Miley Cyrus after the "What's good?" incident. A good demo of the split is that Nicki's fans call it an Awesome Moment, Miley's fans call Nicki out for not letting Miley respond and for purtting twitter beef on blast on live TV, and fans of both or neither just call the whole thing blown out of proportion.

* BestKnownForTheFanservice: A lot of detractors attribute her success to her [[MsFanservice frequently-exploited sex appeal]] rather than her talent. Nicki herself seems to feel this way about her early career:
-->"[Before ''Beam Me Up Scotty''] I was OK, but I wasn't focusing on the music. I was doing pictures and stuff like that, so people [[DistractedByTheSexy knew me more for pictures than my music]]."



* GrowingTheBeard: With her third album, The Pinkprint. It features more rapping, fewer pure pop songs and a more introspective tone than her previous albums.

** Among her mixtapes, Nicki herself considers ''Beam Me Up Scotty'' to be this:
--->"[...] with the ''Beam Me Up Scotty'' mixtape, they have to take me seriously as an artist. So, I would say maybe a year ago, I started sharpening my skills."

* HilariousInHindsight: After Nicki's [[TakeThat diss-laden verse]] on Gucci Mane's "Make Love" sparked an [[TakeThatTitForTat ongoing feud]] with RemyMa, it's ironic that Gucci's own verse has this line:
-->I look down at the beef, that shit childish to me

** The Nazi imagery in the "Only" lyric video. Several people criticized it, feeling it was a tasteless both in its appropriation of nazi imagery and it's release on the 76th anniversary of Kristallnacht (a remembrance of a particularly brutal Nazi push against Jews). Minaj apologized for the questionable imagery, but the video's producer, Jeff Osborne, defended it. He stated that nazi imagery is a perfectly valid [[PuttingOnTheReich trope]] that's everywhere in popular culture, and to single them out specifically was hypocritical. A third group wondered what exactly a song about Nicki Minaj's sex life has to do with the Third Reich.

** ZigZagged. Nicki's extreme usage of Nazi imagery and decision to compare herself [[CompleteMonster to Hitler]] in her *Only* lyric video has also proven unsurprising hard to live down amongst those aware of it (though media was happy to kind of let the whole thing blow over without a word, meaning that a lot of people who likely would have taken this stance don't actually know about it)
