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

Added DiffLines:

** 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.

** She seems to returning to her hip-hop roosts while holding on to some pop fans with hits like "Lookin Ass" and "YASSS Bish". "Pills N Potions" was an attempt at this as well, due to the fact she raps the verses, but sings a sweet chorus and it was meant with critical acclaim.



** The Callout to Miley at the [=VMAs=]. Debate rages on whether she was right. Especially seeing as she immediately dismissed Miley pointing out how the press likes to misquote. The fact that the entire incident stems from her doing a vaguely worded callout possibly aimed at Taylor Swift (which she then claimed wasn't) doesn't help.

** Comparing Minaj to the Franchise/{{Pokemon}} Jynx, which superficially (and unintentionally) resembles a SassyBlackWoman with long blonde hair, especially in its original design where it had black skin.

* BrokenBase: 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.

* SampledUp: Those not in the know were surprised to hear that "Right Thru Me" sampled Joe Satriani's instrumental tune "Always With Me, Always With You."

** Some believe that the video clip for ‘Anaconda’ is a continuous {{Deconstruction}} of the MaleGaze, celebrating female sexuality in the hands of women and {{Big Beautiful Wom|an}}en; two highlights often noted are when Nicki is in the kitchen, cooking in a sequence [[DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything designed to resemble a sex act]] with a banana and some cream, before chopping the banana apart and throwing it away, and the end of the clip, in which she gives Music/{{Drake}} a lap dance and walks away the second he tries to touch her, without giving him so much as a single line of dialogue worth of power on the situation. Others think it was a mere mess with typical half-naked women dancing in a sexually charged atmosphere and any symbolism exists solely in the minds of viewers who are [[EveryoneIsJesusInPurgatory seeing symbolism that wasn't intended]].

** There's also the debate over whether or not "Anaconda" is feminist.
* CrowningMusicOfAwesome: Many fans (at even some non-fans) consider her verse on 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.

* GettingCrapPastTheRadar: The DoubleEntendre of the song "Truffle Butter." While the song uses "truffle butter" correctly referring to the food, it's also the term describing...well as Website/UrbanDictionary defines it as....[[note]]"Truffle butter is when you pull you dick out of the asshole an continue fucking her pussy, and the tan buttery substance around her pussy is truffle butter."[[/note]]

* [[SugarWiki/HeReallyCanAct She Can Really Act]]: Her cameo on ''[[TheOtherWoman2014 The Other Woman]]'' and her voice-over on ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'' show she works really well in acting and puts her training from her early career days to work. This also comes through in some of her songs when she raps in a different accent or persona.
** Most agree that she is a rather great voice actress, particularly as [[WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse Sugilite]].

* TheyCopiedItNowItSucks: Of course, she gets comparisons to LilKim, who is probably the TropeCodifier for female rappers. There's also comparisons to LadyGaga.
