** 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)

* NeverLiveItDown: People are already calling this in regards to Nicki tweeting that she "believes in what the bible says"(I.E. being against gay people) in regards to why she did not tweet her support for the victims of the Pulse nightclub shooting.

The fact that Nicki began tweeting advertisements for her music and blocked people pointing out how offensive she was being did not help. At all.

* SugarWiki/AwesomeMusic: Many fans (at even some non-fans) consider her verse on Music/KanyeWest's "Monster" to be one of her best, considering she changes accents and flows effortlessly a dozen times during it. Even BonIver said it was.

** With the album ''Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded''. The album itself seemed destined to be a BaseBreaker; almost exactly one half of the album is HipHop with some R&B thrown in, and the rest is straight dance-pop in the vein of "Starships". Several high-ups have called Nicki a sell-out which led to a [[http://music-mix.ew.com/2012/06/05/nicki-minaj-hot-97-funkmaster-flex/ dust-up at the Hot 97 Summer Jam in 2012]], in which she pulled out after Peter Rosenburg insulted her pop-leanings.

** Some people feel this way about "Anaconda" sampling "Baby Got Back." Interestingly, Sir Mix-A-Lot himself approves of the song.
