* AlternateCharacterInterpretation: The song ''Roman's Revenge'' was criticized for featuring Eminem rapping his typical homophobic and misogynistic lyrics. Some critics believe that [[CampGay Roman Zolanski's]] revenge is on Eminem.
** Even more likely since she revealed in a interview that Roman Zolanski is gay.
* 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.
* CrazyAwesome
* 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.
** Her verse on Trey Songz's "Bottoms Up" isn't too shabby either.
** "Moment 4 Life" is ''beautiful''.
** Super Bass is successful and well covered for a reason...
** Her latest single, "Starships", is just plain fun.
** Even people who hate her think the long descending note she hits in "Turn me On" is bloody wicked.
* EarWorm:
** "Your love, your love, yeah, your love, your love, yeah, your love, your love, yeah, your love, your love, yeah..."
** [[SampledUp "Oh wha-oh!"]]
** "Ruh, ruh, like a dungeon dragon!"
** "How do you that shit? How do you that shit? How do you? How do you?..."
** "WE GOT TUM-TUMS OVA HERE BIGGA THAN A MONSTA"
** "Boy, you got my heart beat running away, beating like a drum and it's coming your way! Can't you hear that boom-ba-doom-boom-boom-ba-doom-boom-bass, he got that super bass!"
** "You a stupid hoe, you a you a stupid hoe!"
** "Y'all want the full Roman?"
** "POUND THE ALARM!"
** "Dick in yo' face,put my dick in yo' face!"
** "Take your medication Roman, take a short vacation Roman, you'll be okay..."
** "Bitches ain't shit and they ain't say nothing, a hundred motherfuckers couldn't tell me nothing. I beez in the trap, bee-beez in the trap"
** "These girls fall like dominoes, dominoes..."
** "Starships were meant to fly, hands up and touch the sky. Can't stop cos we're so high, let's do this one more time."
* EnsembleDarkhorse: "Super Bass" was promoted to a single due to its massive popularity and promotion from Taylor Swift and Selena Gomez.
* FanCommunityNickname: "Barbies."
* HateDumb: Gained a ''massive'' HateDom overnight with "Stupid Hoe", [[BlackSheepHit despite none of her other songs being at all like "Stupid Hoe"]].
* HypeAversion: Many people got tired of hearing her all over the radio. Plus many feel that she's all looks and no rapping skills.
* ItsPopularNowItSucks: A lot of her old fans don't like the direction she's taking with her newest album, as there's a lot of singing and mid-tempo tracks as opposed to harder rhymes and beats. There's a lot of accusations that she's just toning down her style just to appeal to pop fans.
* {{Narm}}: ''Roman's Revenge'' may be a pretty strong diss, but the general silliness to some parts makes it hard to take seriously.
** NarmCharm: "Right Thru Me": "Do you see through me? / 'Cause you say 'Nicki' / and I say 'who me?' / and you say 'no, you' / and I say 'SCREW YOU'"
*** and the remix to Big Sean's "Dance A$$": "Tell 'em [[CountryMatters "Pussy clean!" I tell 'em "Pussy squeaky!"]]/[[NWordPrivileges Niggas give me brain 'cause all of them niggas geeky]]/[[WordSaladLyrics If he got a mandingo, then I buy him a dashiki]]/And bust this pussy open in the islands of [[IncrediblyLongNote Waikikiiiiii]]"
* NightmareFuel: The music video for [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T6j4f8cHBIM Stupid Hoe]] is disturbing.
** In "Massive Attack", there are some [[BodyHorror double jointed]] soldiers with white eyes generally acting creepy in the jungle.
** In the video for "Monster" she gets awfully violent and sexual with... herself?
** The video for "Turn Me On." It involves her being a clockwork porcelain robot coming to life.
* RetroactiveRecognition: Why yes, she ''did'' have a guest spot on Lil Wayne's massively popular ''Da Drought 3'' mixtape! How nice of you to just notice!
** Some Wrestling/{{WWE}} fans are still surprised when they found out she performed vocals for Victoria's theme "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HwoxWPx_7MU Don't Mess With]]" back in 2004.
* SoBadItsGood: The music video to [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T6j4f8cHBIM Stupid Hoe,]] not to mention the song itself for some.
* TheyCopiedItNowItSucks: Of course, she gets comparisons to LilKim, who is probably the TropeCodifier for female rappers. There's also comparisons to LadyGaga.
* UncannyValley: Her [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T6j4f8cHBIM Stupid Hoe video]]. Have fun getting [[http://media.justjared.com/headlines/2012/01/nicki-minaj-stupid-hoe-video-premiere.jpg this]] out of your mind.
** Nicki Minaj's ass. Viewable in flashes in the above video... that's just not natural.
