AceShowbiz - Nicki Minaj has made headlines because of her racy look during Paris Fashion Week. However, people have speculated the "Side to Side" rapper was copying Lil' Kim's look from the 1999 VMAs. And now, the "Superbass" raptress took to Instagram to let fans know who's the real inspiration behind her look.
Minaj posted a photo of Pablo Picasso's painting, La Femme a l'eventail, which showed a woman with her left breast uncovered. "The Night Is Still Young" hitmaker captioned the photo, "#RP @carolinedemaigret #Picasso 1907 #NickiInPARIS."
Although, Minaj's response wasn't directly mentioned to Kim, the "Hey Mama" rapper was seemingly meant for haters who claimed she's stealing Kim's '90s style. Elsewhere, Kim reportedly took notice when the "Anaconda" rapper imitated her look at the fashion week. A source said Kim was happy because she could become an inspiration for Minaj, who she dubbed "non original girl."
"Kim is glad she can inspire non original girls," said an insider to HollywoodLife.com. "Kim was rocking the one breast out look decades ago. And damn, Nicki stealing that? Kim was the first diva to rock the big colorful wigs back in the '90s. She was one of the first females who was went hard on the mic, being crazy sexually explicit and talking about shit in her rhymes you'd only hear or see in a porn. Nicki stole that too," added the insider.
