Nicki Minaj berates reporter when asked about Drake and Meek Mill feud

Rapper Nicki Minaj lashed out at a reporter who asked her to comment on the ongoing feud between her boyfriend Meek Mill and her labelmate and pal Drake.

In July (15), Mill clashed with his girlfriend's Young Money Entertainment labelmate after suggesting the Started from the Bottom star does not write his own lyrics, and the attack sparked a war of words between the hip-hop rivals.


Drake was widely considered by fans to have emerged victorious in the feud, after launching two diss tracks taking aim at Mill.


Meanwhile, the Anaconda star has remained quiet about the dispute, but in an interview with the New York Times Magazine, she was asked how she felt.


''They're men, grown-a** men,'' she said. ''It's between them. I hate it. It doesn't make me feel good. You don't ever want to choose sides between people you love. It's ridiculous. I just want it to be over.''


Quizzed further about the feud and whether she "thrives off the drama," Minaj blasted the reporter and ended the interview.


''That's disrespectful," she said. ''Why would a grown-a** woman thrive off drama? What do the... men you just named have to do with me thriving off drama? Why would you even say that? That's so peculiar. (These) grown-a** men are having issues between themselves, and you're asking me do I thrive off drama?''


"That's the typical thing that women do," she continued, "What did you putting me down right there do for you? Women blame women for things that have nothing to do with them. I really want to know why - as a matter of fact, I don't. Can we move on, do you have anything else to ask?


"To put down a woman for something that men do, as if they're children and I'm responsible, has nothing to do with you asking stupid questions, because you know that's not just a stupid question. That's a premeditated thing you just did. (It was) rude (and you are) a troublemaker."


She added, "Do not speak to me like I'm stupid or beneath you in any way. I don't care to speak to you anymore.''


Feuds seemed to be a theme of the interview - Minaj also elaborated on her war-of-words with Miley Cyrus that overshadowed the MTV Video Music Awards this year (15).


The two performers fell out when Miley attacked Minaj publicly for comments the hip-hop star made when her video for Anaconda was not nominated for the Best Video gong at the MTV VMAs. The stars exchanged words onstage as the Superbass hitmaker accepted her Best Hip-Hop Video prize.
